Over the past few years, kava has taken off in popularity across the United States. The drink, with origins in the South Pacific, has a long and storied history among island cultures that go back centuries. Why is it becoming so popular now?
If you live in just about any medium to large city, there’s a good chance you can easily find a place to enjoy a kava-based drink. More and more places are popping up every month. You can get mixed drinks with kava, tea, or quick shots. People are drinking it in place of alcohol and they’re loving it all the same. It might have to do with the simple fact that kava gives you a light buzz and feeling of relaxation—similar to alcohol—without the same side effects.
A Change in Lifestyle
While kava has become something of an alcohol alternative, there are several other reasons why it’s grown in popularity. For one, it has a lot to do with our lifestyles. In the U.S., Millennials and Gen-Zers live in an incredibly fast-paced world. From their jobs to their day-to-day responsibilities, they have a lot on their plate, and it can be challenging to find time to relax and just be themselves for a few hours or more.
Older generations are feeling the strain as well. Struggling to maintain a lifestyle that makes you feel fulfilled is a common struggle across age groups. So, many of us are giving kava a try as a way to take the edge off the day and to recenter themselves as they push forward.
Chasing the Moment
Kava is called a euphoric drink. When you drink kava, it doesn’t take long before you start to feel its calming effect. Wait a little longer and you’ll start to feel a mild euphoria. When your life is defined by being constantly on the go, a mild euphoria can go a long way. It gives you a moment to catch up with yourself. To feel more like yourself. That’s important.
And so, kava is booming! You can find places that serve up kava-based drinks and teas or you can order it online and have it sent straight to your door. It’s never been easier to get kava to enjoy its effects. Plus, it’s safe. That’s another reason why it’s becoming so popular. It’s a safe way to feel relaxed and euphoric. When you drink it, you don’t have to worry about a hangover (or other negative health effects) later. Kava doesn’t intoxicate.
The Hype Is Real
With all the positive press surrounding kava, people want to know if it lives up to the hype. What’s the best way to find out? To try it for yourself! If you haven’t tried a kava drink yet, you probably have a friend who has. And they probably already recommended it to you. If you’re looking for a new way to recenter your mind and body, it might be time to take them up on that recommendation. Enjoy it with friends out on the town or try it in the comfort of your own home. Just remember one thing. People don’t drink kava because it tastes good (it doesn’t). People drink kava because it feels good.
