The Sceletium plant in bloom

Sceletium tortuosum plant

Sceletium tortuosum is a low to the ground flowering creeper that grows almost exclusively in South Africa. For hundreds of years, native tribes prized its calming effects, which appear to be very similar to those of St. John's Wort, except the potency is significantly greater. The plant is nowhere near as common in the wild as it once was, with most of it being grown in controlled environments.

Sceletium has been tested by the University of Natal. When compared to other plants with a known presence of mesembrine alkaloids, the concentration in Sceletium was found to be far higher. Please click here for an abstract of the report.

Nearly 400 years of documented use of Sceletium does not reveal many serious adverse effects.
