Sceletium also known as “Kanna” or “Kougoed” is a succulent, ground-cover plant with a long history of use by the San and Khoikhoi people of South Africa. Today, the plant has strong global recognition for its ability to promote a sense of well-being by relieving stress with calming effects. Current research has focused on the commercialisation of the plant because of its treatment in clinical anxiety and depression, psychological and psychiatric disorders, improving mood, promoting relaxation and happiness. 

Hunter gatherers and pastoralists use Sceletium Tortuosum for endurance when hunting. Traditionally, it enabled the San to endure long periods of activity without food or water and without suffering physical fatigue. 

Sceletium works in an adaptogenic way, to mediate the ‘pace’ of the mind, slowing racing thoughts and bringing calm centeredness. Anxiety-sufferers give enthusiastic testimony to Sceletium’s calming effects.

The increase in synaptic serotonin associated with Sceletium use brings about a relaxed, open-hearted and socially convivial state. 

Mesembrenone, a key component in Sceletium, has strong pro-cognitive effects, such as long-term memory enhancement, mental clarity and anti-inflammation. 

Kanna has significant benefits for those wishing to stop smoking. It not only significantly reduces the severity of nicotine withdrawal, but greatly alleviates the craving and desire to smoke. The greatest challenge to stopping smoking is compulsive and obsessive thinking about smoking. Many have found that Sceletium helps reduce the obsessive nature of these withdrawal symptoms. 

For similar reasons, Sceletium serves as a treatment for alcoholism. 

Aside from increasing melatonin levels as a consequence of enhanced serotonin function, Kanna is a profound - if not the most profound – relaxant for body and mind. This state of relaxation greatly supports sleeping well. Reports from Kanna users indicate enhanced sleep and better morning function. In modern endurance sports, Kanna is found to increase endurance, mitigate muscle cramps, and provide a gentle analgesic effect which allows athletes to safely extend their pain threshold.

One of Kanna’s greatest benefits is enhanced social interaction. At slightly higher doses, Sceletium induces open-hearted euphoria and easy conversation.Sceletium is useful for enabling ‘ice-breaking’ in social situations, without the use of alcohol or drugs.

Additional Information

Sceletium gives you an observer perspective on emotions, allowing freedom from remotional pain. There is no better natural mood enhancer than Sceletium, known to be more effective than commonly used botanicals such as St. John’s Wort, Rhodiola, Ginkgo Biloba, Mucuna and Valerian. More than any other known herb, Sceletium greatly enhances serotonin function in the brain without causing drowsiness. Serotonin is the primary mediator of mood and overall good feeling. As Sceletium is both a Serotonin Releasing Agent (SRA) and Serotonin Re-Uptake Inhibitor (SRI), it increases levels of active serotonin as well as melatonin. It is a first-choice treatment for disorders like Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Sceletium is effective in dealing with all drug addiction (including tobacco and alcohol). With Sceletium, withdrawal symptoms are profoundly relieved, particular in opiate and other CNS-depressant addiction. Furthermore, Sceletium has powerful neuro-regenerative effects, useful for healing brain trauma caused from excessive use of CNS stimulants. The negative effects of excessive high-dose MDMA usage, which can cause damage to the serotonin receptors in the brain, are healed by regular Sceletium usage. Note though that Sceletium should not be used concurrently with MDxx-style drugs.
