Voacanga africana is a small tree originating in West Africa. The bark and seeds of the Voacanga tree are used in Ghana as a stimulant, aphrodisiac, and ceremonial practices. These effects are derived from the complex mixture of alkaloids such as voacangine, voacamine, vobtusine, amataine, akuammidine, tabersonine, and coronaridine. In traditional African medicine, the Voacanga root bark is used as a hunting aide for energy.
Austin Organic Village works directly with a small farm in Ghana to import the freshest supply of Voacanga africana products. Our partner farm is comprised of a small group of individuals with a great passion for these plants and the earth.
