What is Kava?

Kava is a traditional drink from the South Pacific that is known for its happy and relaxing effects.

Kava is made from the root of the kava plant, which is native to the Pacific Islands. The root is ground up and mixed with water to create a drink that has been consumed socially and ceremonially by islanders for over 3000 years.

Kava tastes fresh, earthy, and slightly peppery. You'll notice the "kava tingle" in your mouth - that's how you know you're drinking good kava!

That sensation is due to the kavalactones in kava. Kavalactones support mood and promote well-being.

But unlike drugs and alcohol, kava doesn't impair cognitive or motor function, making it a popular alternative for those looking for a natural way to unwind without the negative side effects. Meaning, no more hangovers!

Kava has also been used for centuries to promote social bonding and community building. In many Pacific Island cultures, kava ceremonies are an important part of everyday life, bringing people together to share stories, connect with one another, and celebrate special occasions.
