What is kava?
Native to the western Pacific islands, the root of the kava plant has been consumed for thousands of years by Pacific Islanders and other people around the world for its natural, relaxing properties. There’s little wonder why it’s experiencing such a resurgence today. Kava is actually a member of the pepper family (no worries, it’s not spicy), and we’re thrilled to reintroduce this familiar, longtime favorite in modern times.
How will I feel after drinking Slide?
Slide’s effects vary from person to person, as is the case with most functional supplements. Most people should expect just one can of Slide to leave them feeling perfectly relaxed, but feel free to drink two or three cans in a session if you’re really looking to enhance that sense of calm. Some people report a “reverse tolerance” when using kava. In these cases, the effects of kava aren’t felt immediately but rather become more effective over time with additional consumption as your body and mind become accustomed to the functional properties. Not to worry if you don’t feel the relaxing effects the first time you drink a can of Slide. You may be experiencing this common occurrence.
Is it normal for my mouth to feel numb after drinking Slide?
Yes, it sure is. Many people experience a slightly numb sensation or tingling in the mouth after consuming kava. This is perfectly normal and actually evidence of the real, relaxing sensations people rave about. In fact, this feeling is often sought after by kava drinkers as a sign of high quality. Typically, people will notice their mouths numbing before they feel kava’s other relaxing effects. It’s a good sign that mind-body harmony is on the horizon.
How long does it take to feel Slide’s effects, and how long do they last?
You will likely begin to feel your mouth numbing or tingling about ten minutes after drinking Slide. Shortly after, you should begin to notice a distinct sense of calm. While everyone is different, the relaxing effects of Slide will expand for about 60 minutes after finishing a can before slowly tapering off.
Do I need to refrigerate Slide?
Nope. Slide Sparkling Restoratives can certainly be stored at room temperature, though we recommend enjoying them chilled.
What is Slide’s shelf life/expiration date?
Slide is shelf stable for one year.
Is it normal to see sediment in my Slide?
Yes – sediment equals serenity. That’s just another sign of the good stuff. The kava in Slide combines with carbonated liquid, so some kava particles may settle at the bottom of the can. We recommend gently agitating or rotating your can prior to drinking it.
Will Slide leave me groggy or give me a hangover?
No, which is part of the appeal. Slide will help you unwind, but as a non-alcoholic restorative it’s a fantastic alternative to drinks that ultimately drag you down.
Can I drive after drinking Slide?
Because Slide is crafted to calm the mind, you should not drive or operate heavy machinery after drinking it. But when you’re intentionally looking to relax and recharge, there’s no better place to be than right where you are.
Is it all natural?
Yes, absolutely. Slide uses only all-natural, thoughtfully sourced ingredients. We don’t cut any corners. As we like to say, this is calm without compromise.
When should I drink Slide? Can I mix it with medication or alcohol?
Oftentimes, Slide drinkers say it’s become an integral part of their daily relaxation routine. Whether you’re enjoying Slide to help overcome a stressful morning at work or recharging on the weekend, Slide is perfect any time you need to elevate your sense of ease. We do not recommend combining it with prescription medication or alcohol.
Can I drink Slide while pregnant or lactating?
We do not recommend drinking Slide if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
How old do I need to be to try Slide?
There are no laws setting the minimum age for consuming kava. Since Slide is a functional product with noticeably relaxing effects, we recommend consuming it only if you are 18 years or older.
How many cans of Slide can I have per day?
We recommend consuming no more than four cans of Slide per day.
