Kanna is considered a succulent groundcover plant originating in Southern Africa. Since prehistoric times, the Hottentots of Southern Africa used Kanna as a mood enhancer, relaxant and empathogen. It is also known as Kauwgoed, Kougoed and Canna.
Historically Kanna was chewed, smoked or used as snuff, providing euphoric feelings along with heightened alertness, which gently fades away into relaxation. If chewed in sufficient quantity, Kanna has a mild anaesthetic effect in the mouth, much like kava, and is used by the San tribes if you are about to have a tooth extracted, or in minute doses, for children with colic.
To wean alcoholics off of the bottle, often a tea is made from Kanna. Containing approximately one to two percent total alkaloids, with a combined 0.89 percent of the plant’s mesembrine in the leaves, flowers and stems, Indole alkaloids found in Kanna are completely safe to consume and exhibit significant physiological effects on the peripheral and central nervous system.
In fact, an amino acid called tryptophan is actually the biochemical precursor required to make indole alkaloids. In addition, indole alkaloids share structural similarities with the neurotransmitter serotonin, which is why Kanna interacts advantageously with serotonin receptors in the brain.
Kanna is used to re-balance the brain and nervous system and thereby relieve symptoms of depression. Combined with HEMP and other well-known herbs, this formulation has been proven to be extremely effective and safe, and is now known as KannaBinoiD Hemp CBD Products.
