    Just recently ordered an ounce of Kanna, as I am the legal route right now.
    What are your thoughts on Kanna and what other legal herbs would you recommend?

    I use kanna twice a day for the last two years and I must say it is an interesting plant. Sometimes I take it and I get twisted, other times I don't feel it at all. I did notice if you take Theanine about 3 hours before kanna it intensifies the effect. Also ginkgo 3 hours before also boosts the kanna flight..peace and chicken grease

    What exactly are you going to be using kanna for?

    Kanna is not really "recreational", but can have some positive effects. It can help with depression, anxiety and other mental health conditions. It can have some stimulant/adaptogenic properties. It can also have some nootropic qualties. It's not one to get you "high", though.

    I like kanna a lot for the above mentioned purposes, but have found that it is somewhat inconsistent in its effects.

    Kanna gets me "high", Like a cross between cannabis and MDMA. I use it "recreationally". Some times it doesn't work tho. It works really well with kratom also. Usually I have nightmares every single night and when I take kanna I sleep nightmare free. Its a very mystical herb. Mucus membrane absorption is the best way for consumption IMO...

    I agree on the mucus membrane absorption (chewing the kanna). I have had far stronger effects this way than simply swallowing the plant or smoking it. I have heard that insufflating the plant powder is the strongest method, but I haven't tried that.

    I guess I did get "high" a few times from a really nice batch of kanna I got about 1 year ago. It didn't work every time, but a couple times it was a pretty profound experience - lots of empathy, feelings of closeness with nature, brightening of colors, euphoria. I was highly impressed. But for whatever reason I could not always re-create these few experiences....
