Written by Cort Honey KannaCalm is a brand new supplement based around an alkaloid extract of the Sceletium tortuosum, or Kanna, plant. The plant contains three main psychoactive alkaloids; Mesembrine, Mesembrenone, and delta Mesembrenone. While these alkaloids are psychoactive, they are NOT hallucinogenic. Each of these three alkaloids produce different effects, so different concentrations of these alkaloids in a supplement help relieve different symptoms. Additionally, the dose and method of consumption also cause the effects of Kanna to vary greatly. [...]
Kanna (Sceletium tortuosum) is a plant that’s been used in South Africa for hundreds of years. It contains substances (e.g. Mesembrine and Mesembrenone) which offer depressant and anxiolytic effects. The drug also seems to enhance the effects of cannabis, particularly its euphoria.

Those results were interpreted as reflecting an anxiolytic dampening of activity in threat circuitry of the human brain
