Not available in most parts of the country, kava has taken Southwest Florida by storm; kava bars are becoming an alternative to the bar scene for many consumers. Kava is a root from the South Pacific. A natural muscle relaxer, anti-insomniac, and anxiety reliever, kava gives you a natural sense of calm and wellbeing without affecting cognitive or motor skills like alcohol or marijuana can. Kava (+kratom) elixirs can deliver feelings of happiness, euphoria, and energy, depending on the strain you choose. Chris and Leah's favorite drinks are both kratom milk teas-- Chris prefers Kava Culture's "Cookie Dough" with a red strain (relax + move), while Leah likes a white strain (energy + focus) "Nutella Bomb"

Burma Kava Company
