Sakae Naa has effects that are similar to M. speciosa. In Asia it’s favoured for the energizing, stimulating feeling which some users experience as a ‘rush’ not unlike the rush one feels from caffeine.
Secondary effects include mood-lifting and mild sedative effects. For the sole intent of relaxation Sakae Naa is not the best option available, but in combination with work or other activities it provides a pleasant stimulus. Effects come on quickly and last up to 4 hours.*
