OKAY! The other SIDE of KHAT as we know it in #KENYA
also know as #Jaba
(our National Tea Brand) No-- Seriously, #Miraa
the name changes depending on the Type of breed you like to chew, the language you speak and because of our National Slang' #SHENG
new names keep on popping... sheng.co.ke/
Because in Kenya we Chew alot of KHAT thats what we do in EAST AFRICA - every WEEKEND-- Apart from Tanzania which is very Illegal -- Its so Illegal in TZ your far better being busted with Marijuana (which is still Illegal in Kenya o_0 & TZ) than Miraa -- So if you are crossing from Kenya to TZ throw your stash out of the window first. So, It's grown in and Around the slopes of Mt. Kenya -- where am from but on the other side of the mountain -- Meru, Embu, Tharaka Nithi; that side.
We even have dedicated Companies helping farmers grow better Yields of the Stuff.http://khatkenya.com/
One of the many companies specializing in the Miraa Culture

Basically, You use chewing gum or Groundnuts as a BASE - So that you don't swallow the mushed up leaves and you have to make a TUXIN, a big mixture of the Khat Leaves and Chewing Gum on one side of the cheek, either Left or Right side, whichever rocks your boat.
NEVER SWALLOW LARGE AMOUNTS OF THE LEAVES you are Chewing -- You will definitely PUKE!
When you chew, all you have to do is keep adding more to the Mush and you wont know when it hits you --- you will be focused like a MF.
Miraa makes your brain to be clear -- And you live for the Moment, Lack of sleep, Hyper Like a Rabbit on RedBull -- And most Notably your Sex Drive is non existent (I don't like that part)...Way better than some of these shit coming from the West... Heroin and Shit.
If there is a drug I'd recommend is Natural Khat -- WARNING: DO NOT TRY TO EXTRACT IT OR TAKE A SYNTHETIC FORM because It will fuck you Up. Try the natural leaves and you wont regret the experience.
You literally build Castles in the Air until you stop chewing ---thats when the withdrawal symptoms KICK IN, after 30 mins of stopping and your mind is coming back to reality you will curse why you started chewing (but thats how I feel, my friends usually don't seem to have the same experience)
In my Opinion, Khat is Not BAD until you start making 'Synthetic' stuff.
