In this episode Botanic Tonics founder, JW Ross brings us into the world of plant therapeutics and the overlooked health benefits of plants like kava and kratom for calming anxiety, focus and energy. After giving up drinking, this lifestyle shift propelled Ross to dive deeper into the world of plants and how they can provide solutions to the various ailments we face on a day-to-day basis without any side effects. By showing us how these plants can elevate our health naturally, we don't have to always rely on medication or other numbing substances like alcohol. Plus, we look at what the differences are between synthetic and natural substances.

A few of my favorite things we cover this episode:

  • The history of Kava and how it helps with anxiety.
  • The difference between synthetic and natural substances.
  • The research surrounding Kava and Kratom.
