Kanna Extract powder is a powerful mood-support supplement derived from the African succulent, Sceletium tortusum. It grows naturally in the Namaqualand region of South Africa and has been used for millennia by the Khoisan bushmen. Our extract contains very high concentrations of the alkaloids Mesembrine and Mesembrenone.

Scientific Consensus

An extremely long history of use suggests that using the fermented plant is safe and effective, but does not provide sufficient proof. Further, very few studies have been conducted using a strong Kanna Extract powder. More research is needed to fully understand the significance of the benefits and adverse effects of this supplement. There is not enough research about the safety of Kanna Extract powder for pregnant and breastfeeding women.
