DOSAGES & DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Kanna responds to priming. Dosing regularly, or daily, will help amplify the effects. Many users claim in order to feel the full effects priming is necessary.


WHAT IS PRIMING?


Priming is the method of continually taking a substance over a number of days to get (better) effects from it. This means that the active ingredients in the Kanna that give it its unique qualities can be absorbed into the system over a period of time.
