High quality plants are only half the equation needed to produce high quality kanna extracts. While plant material can be rich in sceletium alkaloids, these compounds are difficult to isolate and degrade rapidly without sophisticated extraction techniques.
Our state-of-the-art patented extraction process is essential to render kanna extracts that can be accurately dosed, provide reliable efficacy, and are shelf stable in a workable form.
Measured, Reliable Potency
Our kanna extracts are standardized to precise concentrations of sceletium alkaloids.
Kanna contains organic compounds that are responsible for the plant’s measurable effects. The primary compounds include mesembrine, mesembrenone, and Δ7mesembrenone alkaloids.
In raw plant material the concentration of these alkaloids can vary significantly.
Standardized extracts are essential to provide accurate dosing and reliable efficacy.
Unique Extracts, Distinct Felt Effects
We offer 2 unique kanna extracts: LIFT and BLISS.
Both extracts are of equal potency, standardized to 15% total alkaloids.
The 15% concentration is composed of mesembrine, mesembrenone, and Δ7mesembrenone alkaloids. It is the ratio of these alkaloids to each other that produces different felt effects.
For example, the LIFT Alkaloid Profile is:
Which produces uplifting, energizing, outgoing effects.
While the BLISS Alkaloid Profile is:
Which produces blissful, warm-hug, “melty” effects.
Both profiles are pure kanna extracts of equal potency, but the different alkaloid ratios produce distinct effects.
Our extracts are produced with a rigorous extraction method that ensures stability and standardization.
The lengthy process isolates kanna’s unique alkaloids and renders mesembrine, mesembrenone, and Δ7mesembrenone in a stable form.
Each alkaloid is bound to mannitol (an inert sugar) according to our extract specifications. Mannitol is required to stabilize the sceletium alkaloids and formulate a workable extract powder.
In this way we are able to standardize unique alkaloid ratios for each kanna extract.
FDA Inspected & GMP Certified Facilities
Our extraction facilities in South Africa are both FDA inspected and GMP certified.
These 3rd party verifications certify our production process and facilities meet regulatory requirements.
Strict safety, sanitation, and operating protocols are in place to ensure our extracts meet the highest quality standards.
Transparent Lab Testing
We use third party lab testing to ensure the potency and purity of our extracts.
Each batch is lab tested to confirm alkaloid content and confirm the extract is free of heavy metals and biological contaminants.
Each batch’s Certificate Of Analysis (COA) can be viewed on our Lab Results Page.
