Feels like magic
works like science
KA! Empathogenics was born out of pure inspiration of nature, deep respect for the healing wisdom of indigenous communities around the world, and humanity’s call for more head-heart harmony.
We’ve spent years researching, experimenting and perfecting the art of neuroscience, sensory science and flavor science to bring to life first-ever formulations of empathogenic botanicals that calibrate the brain, and feel as good as they taste.
This new category of natural empathogenic supplements are designed to help people feel more alive as they navigate everyday stress*. All of our proprietary offerings feature Kanna, a powerful South African botanical that’s clinically proven to lift mood and sharpen cognitive function.
Blast from the past: the ancient history of Kanna
Known to many as “the happiest plant on earth,” Kanna has been an essential ingredient of indigenous Khoisan medicinal, social and spiritual culture for millennia. Its discovery was revolutionary, unearthed by the earliest inhabitants known to mankind. These South African hunter-gatherers chewed on Kanna’s succulent roots to enhance mood, focus and energy while on multi-day hunts.
Kanna quickly became the community’s heartbeat, lifeforce and most valued trading asset. The Khoi Khoi and San peoples (collectively known as the Khoisan because of their similar languages) have stewarded its cultivation, shared its infinite wisdom and continue to revere Kanna for its stress reducing, vibe-elevating properties to this day.
Brought to you by thousands of years of indigenous wisdom.
