Kanna (Sceletium tortuosum) has been used by South African pastoralists and hunter-gatherers as a mood-altering substance from prehistoric times. The traditionally prepared dried Kanna was often chewed and the saliva swallowed, but it has also been made into capsules, teas and tinctures. It has also been used as a snuff or it can be smoked.
