Kanna Priming Guide

Introduction:

We’ll explore the idea of priming and discuss why some people may not feel the need to prime, and how individual biology, medications, and other substances can influence your experience with Kanna.




Understanding Priming with Kanna:

Priming is suggested for some individuals to enhance the effects of Kanna. It involves starting with a modest dose steadily until the effect is noticed to help improve sensitivity to the herb’s benefits. However, it’s not a one-size-fits-all approach; some users may feel the effects immediately, while others may need to adjust the dosage to find their sweet spot. And some need to take it daily at the same dose to recognize its effects


We wanted to deep dive into the topic and open the discussion to everyone and there thoughts on the matter






How to Prime:


  • Guide to Priming: Begin with a low dose (10-20mg refined 5% active alkaloid extract once daily for 3-10 days) Nasal and or sublingually if taking orally we recommend to 3x-4x that dose, once you feel the effects you can than take 5-10mgs more as needed to get to that desired effect again

(If you are taking a product that does not have the active alkaloids listed try the recommended dose than doubling it until it is felt)



  • Priming recommendation #2: gradually increase dose till you find the dose that works for you as you may be under dosing for your personal tolerance to the herb


  • No Priming Required: not everyone needs to prime most consumers find that they can effectively feel it the first time they consume 



Factors Affecting Kanna Sensitivity:



  • Dosage: Under dosing kanna is a common issue with a lot of different products on the market all with varying potency from harvest / genetics and potentially being weaker than another as well as the potential of people selling other plants as “kanna”

so gradually scaling up your dose is crucial in achieving the effect you are looking for!




  • Biological Variability: Acknowledge that each person’s unique biochemistry means the effects of Kanna can vary significantly from one individual to another.



  • Diet and Medications: Be aware that certain supplements and medications, especially those affecting serotonin, can impact how you feel Kanna’s effects as well as be dangerous in combination.


  • Tolerance to Stimulants: Existing tolerance to various stimulants, including ADHD medications, might dull the effects of Kanna some users report.


  • Biological Variability: Acknowledge that each person’s unique biochemistry means the effects of Kanna can vary significantly from one individual to another.



  • Dosage Adjustments: If effects are not felt, consider revising the dosage, supplement and medication intake before concluding that Kanna does not work for you.






Conclusion:

It is important to listen to your body and adjust the approach to Kanna accordingly. while priming can be beneficial, it’s not mandatory to have a good experience and the key to a positive Kanna experience is finding what works for your individual needs.
