An herbal medicine that has a strong scientifically documented background, but an underwhelming social-status in modern society, is the African-based plant, “kanna.” Scientifically classified as “Sceletium tortuosum”, kanna has a calming yet euphoric quality that is akin to the traditional sedative herbs like cannabisdagga, et cetera – and unlike cannabis, Kanna is totally unregulated, and legal in all parts of the globe. 

Like essentially all of these plants, kanna too has its own place in the shamanism and herbalism of human history, and has some notable and specified benefits that make it quite the opposition for Big Pharma products like Xoloft, Prozac, and the other commonly prescribed SSRI’s (Selective Serotonin Re-Uptake Inhibitors). 

For those unfamiliar, an SSRI involves a synthetically designed serotonin blockade that is time released in the brain. This means that the specified chemicals in the prescribed drug will lodge themselves in the serotonin receptors, and thus let the serotonin “pool up” in the person’s brain (in a similar way that cocaine produces its own results with dopamine). When the time-release of the chemical ends, the person receives a massive flood of serotonin, which is one of the more essential neurotransmitters that stimulates human activity and engagement with a person and their environment. The problem with these Big Pharma prescriptions is simply this (among the high toxicity levels in these drugs as well): a person uses serotonin as an instigator of this engagement with life – it is an incentive that is part of the cycle of interaction.
