What Is Kanna?

Not a version of Cannabis as some think; Kanna (Sceletium tortuosum) , is a psychedelic used by the Hottentots in South Africa. The Dutch who found it in South Africa named it kaugoed. Kanna has a relaxing and social effect.  It can be sniffed, chewed or drunk as tea. It can be slightly stimulating and then after about an hour just relaxing. Soome say it can cause increased sensitivity, an increase in libido and may even make cannabis stronger!

You'll find Kanna and Kanna Extracts on sale at almost all of Amsterdam's Smart Shops, but some are better than others - check out our Smokers Guide Map and Smart Shop Listings for our favorite smart shops in Amsterdam.
