Sananga is produced from the roots and bark of Tabernaemontana undulata, a member of the Apocynaceae family. T.undulata can be found found in Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guyana, Guyana Francesa, Panamá, Perú, Surinam, Trinidad y Tobago, and Venezuela (Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute).

Sananga is also know as ‘Bechette (pronounced B’-chew-teh) by the Mati & Matses. The Kaxinawa tribe of Acre Brazil use a similar species in the same genus - T.sanaho to make their Sananga. It is not well understood if other species have been or are used and whether the same distinctions made by botanists are observed by native peoples.
