Kanna Root and Stem
Kanna (Sceletium tortuosum) also goes by the name of Kougoed and Channa. Being a native plant to South Africa, this herb has an extremely long history beating out even well documented teas from ancient China. Evidence suggests that Kanna was used by early human hunter gatherers for a variety of effects such as relaxation, stress and anxiety relief.
The name of this tea when translated directly means 'something to chew' which if used in prehistoric times would actually be quite accurate as this would have been far before boiling leaves was widespread.
Today, Kanna is mostly used as a mood elevating herb and can very hard to get a hold of outside of Africa. For an in depth history of this roots uses please see this paper here.
