What is Kava?
Kava is a plant that is grown in the Pacific islands. Islanders have used it for centuries as a social beverage, ceremonial offering, and traditional medicine.
The Kava Root is ground down and made into a natural and non-alcoholic relaxing beverage.
The effects of kava
The islanders know kava to induce relaxation, reduce anxiety, and improve mood. It can also help you sleep, which is why we made Luna: kava-powered sleep. Kava is a popular supplement for people looking to enhance their sense of well-being and promote relaxation.
How Kava Works
The active ingredients in kava are called kavalactones. Kavalactones work by interacting with the brain to produce a calming effect. Kava also acts on the nervous system to produce a sense of relaxation. Kava is non-addictive and does not push you to an extreme as other substances, such as alcohol or THC; we like to describe Kava as “chill but not overkill.”
Kava is composed of 18 different kavalactones, with a majority of “experiences” coming from just six. Each variety has a different composition of these six kavalactones, which is why different varieties provide different relaxation effects. Some are more uplifting and great for daytime drinking. Other varieties are better for nighttime drinking and great as a sleep aid. At Leilo, we have done guess work for you, and all-products are expertly grown, harvested, and blended by islanders following their time-tested and cultural traditions to provide the ultimate kava experience.
