What is Kratom Exactly?
At Lacuna Kava Bar… it’s simply known as delicious. (But that’s because WE make it.) 👌🏼😃
As we do make botanical beverage magic in a glass jar or coconut shell… you’d probably just want me to skip ahead to explain the ever-growing question: “What is kratom exactly?”
Well, kratom is a tropical tree native to Southeast Asia, with leaves that contain compounds that can have psychoactive effects. The leaves of the kratom tree are traditionally crushed and made into a powder, which can then be mixed with water/ juice/ (Lacuna Kava Bar secret recipe’s) made into capsules or even a concentrated extract.
In low doses, kratom can have stimulant effects, increasing energy and alertness. In higher doses, it can have sedative effects, helping to reduce anxiety and promote relaxation. Some people use kratom as a natural alternative to manage chronic pain or to treat opioid addiction.
Kratom is personally MY fave “go-to” Lacuna beverage… but the only way to find out how excellent MY taste in “plant-based drinking” truly is, would be to visit one of our locations and try it out yourself! 😉
*It’s important to note that Kratom’s safety and effectiveness for various uses has had some debate and is currently not approved for any medical use in the United States.
