A few quick things I had to find out about Kanna the hard way.
DO NOT eat any food within an hour or 2 before taking it. For some reason it destroys its activity.
Also MANY place are selling backyard/greenhouse grown Kanna and they are picking the leaves before it matures. It takes up to a year before its good to pick.
Needless to say people are buying it and getting no affect from it at all than saying it doesnt do crap.
I only bought Kanna from iamshaman once and it was *ok. Nothing spectacular. I've bought other herbs from them however that were completely inactive (kratom)
They are suppose to be "reputable" but when I emailed them about selling inactive Kratom they never responded. I since never ordered from them again.
The once place I ALWAYS had good experience was is psychoactiveherbs.com
Thier stuff is grown in a local farm in indonesia, picked fresh and shipped right out. iamshaman i have no idea where they get there stuff from but i think they're a middle man (i could be wrong though)
thus thier products arent as fresh or potent even when they're good.
ALWAYS order a tiny amount from a few different suppliers and compare. This stuff isnt regulated by the fda and you cant always be sure of what your getting.
With these facts in mind, I know the large majority of people who try quality Kanna love it. But they usually get turned away the second they get a bad batch and think it stopped working. And DO NOT use this to self medicate. I suggest only taking it in situations of extreme anxiety, otherwise youll get a habit you cant afford.
L-theanine is great for anxiety too, Kratom tea varies with users, Kava Kava is suppose to be good but I never thought it was anything spectacular.
I have about 6 new herbs coming in the mail this week. Ones called Damiana and Im dying to see how it works because Ive heard some interesting things about it and its stress reducing prpperties. If you've never tried l-theanine go to your local health shop and buy a bottle, I ALWAYS have some lying around.
Im not sure if its just me but that stuff has never failed me.
Im currently tying to concoct a powerful herbal anxiety reducer.
And dont be fooled by the world "herb", some of these things can knock you on your *** (ie: first time Kratom users)
I see a lot of herbal anxiety pills and I cant help but question some of the useless ingredients they put in.
I think they purposely make them weak so you come back for more and they can avoid lawsuits but what Im working on is no joke and Ill keep you guys posted.
