Kanna is a succulent, medicinal herb native to Southern Africa, where it has a long history of use since prehistoric times. The earliest written records of the use of the Kanna plant date back to 1662.


Kanna was also used as an appetite suppressant by Khoisan shepherds walking long distances in dry, arid areas.


It is acknowledged that the best quality Kanna grows in the Kannaland region of South Africa. This is part of the Succulent Karoo Biome which is home to the largest variety of succulents in the world.


Today Kanna is used for many purposes including:

  • Stress & tension
  • Appetite control
  • Anxiety
  • As a mood elevator
  • Improving endurance
  • Fatigue
  • Drug addiction
  • Sleeplessness & nightmares
  • Depression
  • Calming nervous animals such as horses and dogs

Long-term use followed by abstinence has not been reported to result in a withdrawal state. The plant is not hallucinogenic, and no severe adverse effects have ever been documented.
