Kava Drink Runs And Scores With New Market Concept
January 4, 2010
Mary Jane, a drink that uses the Kava root as its main ingredient, is a new drink that has taken hold of a new market in ‘relaxation colas.’
These drinks use the sedative and euphoric effects of Kava that have been seen for hundreds of years by various indigenous groups and people, and puts them in a sugary cola for consumption.
The name of Mary Jane might be a little misleading.
The drink will not cause the user to become high or impaired, and in fact it has no chemical ties to marijuana at all.
As one fan and frequent drinker put it: “I drink it after a long day. It takes five or 10 minutes to sink in and then I feel relaxed and slightly euphoric.”
It is mostly being called an alcohol alternative, and no real negative effects have been noted, though the FDA has released a warning that some people with liver disease or taking certain related medication may wish to speak to a doctor before drinking it.
They can be purchased on their official website, or in certain store, clubs, and bars in Southern California.
