Kava is an ancient plant that has been consumed for social, cultural, medicinal and political reasons for millennia. Originally from the islands of the South Pacific, kava has recently become popular around the world. People across the globe value it for its rich cultural history and relaxing properties.
Some drink it for relief from stress, anxiety or insomnia. Others consume it for purely recreational or social purposes. Kava is known for its ability to promote relaxation, sociability and a feeling of harmony without diminishing judgement, mental clarity or awareness. For many users, kava is a pleasant, slightly stimulating drink that relieves fatigue, relaxes the body after hard work or effort, clarifies the mind and brings a sense of well-being. As such, to many kava presents an attractive, non-addictive and healthier alternative to alcohol. When consumed with friends, kava can promote peace, tranquillity and cooperation.
