Kanna (Sceletium tortuosum)
A native of South Africa, the Kanna has a very rich and pulpy inside that is very adaptive to different environments and can be turned into different products. Its white flowers grown big, and develop a yellow centre that holds the cocoons of the pulpy inside which are later processed. The Kanna is an inhibitor of serotonin and can improve a person’s mood and calm the nerves. However, it should not be combined with medicine that is aimed to improve the cardiovascular system, because it could have a contrary effect. Oil made from the Kanna is often applied to painful gums to reduce toothaches because it has mild properties of an anesthetic as well.
We started producing Extract capsules because of the growing demand of stronger herbal products. Of a plain plant powder a mild dose is 3-5 grams which translates to 7 to 14 capsules (400 mg per capsule). Extract capsules contain 75% extract. Extract capsules have 500mg of extract/flower blend which makes it 375mg of extract and 125mg of Blue Lotus flower powder as a binder.
All extracts that we use for making extract capsules are sticky and some are even runny when they are completely dehydrated. That’s why we blend 75% resin extract with 25% Blue Lotus flower powder to make it possible to pulverise the extract and fill it into capsules.
Our extract capsules can be consumed in different ways.Orally: 1-2 extract caps is a mild dose. 3-4 extract caps is a medium dose 5-6 extract caps is a strong dose. When consumed orally it works much better to open the capsule and put the content under your tongue (sublingual). A lot of water should be consumed along with taking extract capsules. Dehydration and a headache can appear otherwise. The extract capsules can be opened and the content can be smoked! You can also dissolve the content in warm water, wine or vodka. If you like you can mix the content of the capsules with food like salad or a smoothie. But please note that the sublingual consumption of the powder inside the capsule works most effective!
