More about Sceletium

Sceletium is one of the most usable and functional herbs for mental and emotional wellness that exists in the world today. Sceletium tortuosum (also known as Kanna or Kougoed) is a succulent plant native to Southern Africa. It is often found covering the ground, in the shade of larger bushes. This remarkable and sacred plant has been used by the Khoikhoi for hundreds of years. Traditionally the plant was dried and chewed (hence the name Kougoed, meaning “chewing stuff”) or smoked. It was often smoked in ceremony and mixed with a variety of other different herbs. In recent years, it has been made into capsules, oils, teas, as well as full or partial alkaloid extracts.

Sceletium has a range of popular medicinal and therapeutic benefits including:

Emotional Wellness: Sceletium integrates and meditates the mind, body and emotions, helping to put you in calm, clear and relaxed state. It helps calm overactive minds whilst allowing speech to flow and thoughts to be more focused. It helps you ‘get in touch’ with your heart centre thus allowing a more positive outlook.

Mood Enhancement: Sceletium has very reliable mood boosting properties. It greatly enhances serotonin function in the brain. In higher dosages, it can result in gentle, yet noticeable, euphoria.

Anti-Depressant: Sceletium is a natural and safer option than chemical SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Re-Uptake Inhibitors), which often have many unpleasant, undesired side effects. Sceletium acts as an SRA (Serotonin Releasing Agent), which have been found to be more effective, balanced and harmonious approach than Re-Uptake Inhibitors. (Note: Sceletium should not be taken at the same time as chemical SSRIs)

Anti-Anxiety: Kanna has been traditionally used for millennia as an anti-anxiety remedy. Sceletium works in a direct, apoptogenic way to give you peace of mind, bringing about a sense of calmness and centeredness to the mind, body and soul. It can be used as an on-the-go ‘rescue remedy’.

Stress Reduction: Living in the modern world, especially in urban cities, many people deal with stress that comes from information overload, time scarcity, nature deficit disorder, etc. A key aspect to dealing with stress is to remain grounded and centred amongst our often chaotic environment. Sceletium helps in this regard, allowing us to slow down, breath and gain perspective of the bigger picture.

Alcohol, drug & smoking addictions: Sceletium has incredible benefits for those wishing to stop smoking, drinking and other forms of substance abuse. It helps alleviate the tendency to compulsively and obsessively think about the substance, as well as significantly reduce withdrawal symptoms.

Social phobia & euphoriant: Sceletium has incredible benefits in helping those with social anxiety. It eases communication and using Kanna at slightly higher dosages induces open-hearted euphoria.

Whilst the above list are the most popular uses, Sceletium is also widely used to help with:

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) / Grey Weather Syndrome, Concentration, OCD Treatment, Libido improvement, PTSD, menopause irritability, Cognitive Enhancement, Yoga, Meditation and more.

Magical plant medicine

Sceletium is a subtle yet powerful medicine that can aid in coping with anxiety and depression. It is gentle at lower doses, creating space within which you can handle life with more grace, and at higher doses it can be heart opening and empathogenic. It has improved my life in many noticeable ways and I feel immense gratitude to it.

The most common and widely available form is raw plant material (also sold here). This works well enough but can cause nausea at higher doses. This extract is far more effective as it eliminates this issue and the experience is smoother. Dosing is a challenge since it's highly concentrated and easy to take too much by accident, but start small and gradually increase the dose until you find what works for you. The elixir (also sold here) provides a similar refined experience and is easier to dose.
