Kanna's history

Sceletium Tortuosum is a succulent plant first discovered by Western People when they got in contact with the Khoikhoi of South-Africa. This indigenous people had been chewing the fermented strains and roots of this plant since time immemorial, for a narcotic effect. That's why in South-Africa it is also called Channa or Kougoed. Nowadays, the dried and processed herb is often sniffed or smoked, while chewing Kanna with a bit of chewing gum or making tea from it are other popular ways to use Kanna.
