Fermented Kanna (Sceletium Tortuosum)
Kanna (sceletium tortuosum) is a groundcover succulent with tiny, thread-like petals that is native to South Africa and has been used medicinally and culturally for centuries. Before the arrival of the Dutch colonists to South Africa in the 17th century, the Kanna powder was used by the nomadic-pastoralist Khoikhoi tribe to provide a natural source of energy, pain relief, and euphoria. Today, people around the world are seeking out dried Kanna powder in fermented and non-fermented forms to experience its legendary properties for themselves.

Why is Kanna Fermented?
In its traditional context, the Kanna leaves and roots would be crushed and placed inside a sewn-up sheepskin to ferment for seven days. They would then be ready for use as a natural energy supply while the Khoikhoi walked from place to place. This Kanna fermentation process was thought to make both the taste and the effects of the plant more pleasant.
In modern-day South Africa, Kanna (also called “channa” or “kuogoed” — “chewable”) is grown and sold in stores in a variety of forms, including Kanna extract powder and fermented Kanna powder. At Kratora, we sell Kanna that has been fermented for the traditional period of one week before drying and grinding the plant matter a fine powder. We then package the powder straight away so that you get the freshest product possible.
