Description

Cola nitida, also known as Kola Nut, is a caffeine-containing nut of the kola tree, native to the tropical rainforests of Africa. The kola nut has cultural, medicinal, and economic significance, particularly in West African countries. The Cola nitida tree is evergreen and can grow up to 20 metres tall, producing star-shaped fruit, which contains seeds known as kola nuts.

Kola nuts are chewed in many West African cultures for their stimulant effects due to caffeine. They are also used in traditional ceremonies and rituals. It is reported to lessen fatigue, prevent hunger pangs, aid digestion, hangover remedy, increase mental activity and reduce the need for sleep.
