    Sceletium tortuosum is a succulent plant commonly found in South Africa, which is also known as Kanna.

Sceletium tortuosum may elevate mood and decrease anxiety, stress and tension.Intoxicating doses can be euphoric but not hallucinogenic, contrary to some literature on the subject.

  6. (Valeriana officinalis) live plant

    Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) live plant (large)


    Valerian (Valeriana officinalis,) is a perennial flowering plant, with heads of sweetly scented pink or white flowers that bloom in the summer. Valerian in herbal medicine is the name of a herb or dietary supplement prepared from roots of the plant. Crude extract of the root is often sold in the form of capsules. Valerian root has sedative and anxiolytic effects. It can also be classified as a drug, since its consumption produces a sedative or medicinal effect. Provide valerian with full sun for at least 6 hours a day. It likes a nitrogen rich soil that drains well and appreciates plenty of moisture. Valerian can grow to about 5 feet high and more than a foot across, so give it plenty of space. It is hardy in zones 4 through 9. This plant is 4-5" tall, about 18 months old and grown organically from seed in the Cornish sunshine. Learn More
