How Much Kanna to Take?
The ideal dosage of Kanna (Sceletium tortuosum) varies depending on the form of consumption and individual sensitivity. Here are general guidelines:
Tea or Powder: For beginners, start with a small dose of about 50-100 mg. Experienced users may consume up to 200-400 mg. Observe how your body reacts and adjust accordingly.
Chewing: When chewing dried Kanna, a starting dose can be a small piece of plant material, about the size of a pea. Gradually increase the amount based on your comfort level and effects.
Smoking/Vaping: For smoking or vaporizing, a dose of 50-150 mg is typically sufficient. Begin with the lower end and increase if necessary.
Snuff: As a snuff, Kanna is quite potent. Start with a tiny amount, no more than a matchstick head, and increase cautiously.
Tincture: Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines, usually a few drops under the tongue. Begin with the minimum suggested dose.
It's crucial to start with a lower dose to understand your body's response and avoid potential side effects. Always consult a healthcare professional before starting Kanna, especially if you have health concerns or are on medication. Note that these dosages are general suggestions and may vary based on individual factors and product strength.
