Properties Of Kanna
Sceletium tortuosum contains seven different active alkaloids, of which mesembrine, mesembranol, mesembrenone and mesembrenol are the four that have been most studied and have demonstrated a much purer concentration of alkaloids in the dry plant matter.
These substances act by inhibiting the reuptake of serotonin, the neurotransmitter that has the greatest impact on mood, emotions, sleep, hunger, and social behavior; providing more serotonin to the receptor site is the first step in converting it.
The effect can create a warm and satisfying feeling, providing open interaction with the world, increased speech and energy, but at the same time relaxation, heightened sensitivity to touch and analgesia to certain pains . Often there is an increased alertness or energy and then a sedative-tranquilizing result.
However, in high doses, kanna has the opposite effect in a short time, it becomes sedative, whichfacilitates muscle relaxation, sleep and memory impairment. It is practically impossible to carry out any project or activity if the person experiences these effects.
