Khat refers to the young and tender leaves and shoots of the khat tree (Catha edulis). Khat has many names including ‘qat’ (Yemen), ‘jad’ or ‘chad’ (Ethiopia, Somalia), ‘miraa’ (Kenya) or ‘marungi’ (Uganda, Rwanda). The soft leaves and tender stems are chewed and kept in a tight wad in the cheek pocket.
