Catha edulis is a flowering plant native to the Horn of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula.

Recreational consumption of khat, khat chewing, is a traditional activity dating back thousands of years and is an accepted part of the mainstream culture.

Khat’s effects:

The main active ingredient is cathinone, an amphetamine like stimulant.

It is a stimulant and  a strong mood enhancer (depending on the dosage).

The effects are described as amphetamine like and cocaine like by users (see trip reports at the bottom).

Interesting facts about Khat:

They modeled the active ingredient in bath salts after the active ingredient in khat, cathinone (see below).



Hadar: khat is harvested when the plant is very young. The more mature Khat, which has been left to grow is called hadar. Hadar can also be chewed, it has a different, more bitter taste and it is harder to chew. Younger khat is preferred over hadar.

Arabian tee: tea made from the dried leaves and twigs of khat. It is especially popular in Yemen, where 85% of the population consumes it daily. Sometimes this tee is also called bushman’s tea.

Quat: it’s just a different way of spelling khat, it’s not a different type. Sometimes the spelling “chat” is used as well.

  • Have toothpicks ready to clean teeth if necessary, and have a spitting bowl ready (an ashtray won’t be enough).
  • Assume a comfortable reclined position.
  • Each time you spit out the chewed plant material drink a little traditionally prepared black tea to rinse your palate (mind your caffeine intake, khat is a stimulant!)
  • Take your time with it, chewing sessions last for hours.
  • Traditionally khat is never chewed alone, it’s a social occasion.

During a sessions of khat chewing users typically chew between 100-300 grams of fresh plant material.
