The aim with the Kana Mellow Syrup is to illicit a state of relaxation and calmness; i.e. a mood that causes one to be mellow. Although we would never claim that this product will cure or treat mood disorders such as anxiety or stress, the goal is indeed to target such ailments. The Mellow Syrup was made with 5 different herbs and CBD, then blended with fruit flavors, agave, citric acid and vegetable glycerin to give it a desirable taste. The Mellow Syrup was designed to be taken directly from the dropper. However, mixing it with water, tea or any other preferred beverage is an excellent choice as well.

Arnica, short for Arnica montana, is a perennial plant found in the mountainous areas of Europe and North America that produces yellow-orange daisy-like flowers. Since the 1500s, the fresh or dried flowers of the arnica plant have been used for medicinal purposes. Arnica is used for bruises, sprains, muscle soreness, and muscle spasms often associated with sports activity. Arnica is also used to treat muscular aches, joint pain, and arthritis. It is believed that the arnica plant has anti-inflammatory properties. Arnica has also been used for wound healing, superficial phlebitis, inflammation caused by insect bites, and swelling caused by broken bones. Arnica is a graceful woodland plant in the same family as the sunflower, native to Central Europe and the western United States. There are many medicinally viable species of arnica flowers found around the globe, some of which are found in North American mountain ranges and woodlands. Arnica montana is native to Europe, with a natural range stretching from the southern Iberian Peninsula to Scandinavia. The plant has large flower heads with brilliant yellow coloration. Flowers begin to appear during mid-summer and continue blooming well into autumn. For best results, they should be harvested early in the blooming season. The dried flowers are fluffy and fibrous, and can be irritating to the nose if handled improperly. Arnica contains sesquiterpene lactones of the helenanolid type, predominantly ester derivatives of helenalin and 11,13-dihydrohelenalin. Additionally, Arnica contains flavonoids (e.g., isoquercitrin, luteolin-7-glucoside, and astragalin), volatile oil (with thymol and its derivatives), phenol carbonic acid (chlorogenic acid, cynarin, caffeic acid), and coumarins (umbelliferone, scopoletin).
A member of the Borage family, comfrey’s relatives include both borage (Borago sp.) and heliotrope (Heliotropium sp.). Comfrey has large, rough, hairy, and lance-shaped leaves with whitish, pink, or purple flower spikes which have a slight heliotrope like curl typical of this family. It is native to much of Europe, and various regions in Asia such as the Caucasus, Kazakhstan, Siberia, and Turkey, and is commonly found as a weed in temperate northern latitudes. The common name ‘comfrey’ is derived from the Latin ‘con firma’ alluding to this plants purported use of knitting bones back together, and the Greek word ‘symphyo’ which is the root of the generic name, Symphytum also meaning ‘to unite.’ Comfrey is often used in attempt to combat back pain, osteoarthritis and other forms of arthritis.
Sourced from a resin found in the bark of the frankincense tree, Boswellia has been shown to thwart chemical reactions involved in inflammation. Practitioners of Ayurveda have long used Boswellia to treat arthritis. Boswellia serrata is native to much of India and the Punjab region that extends into Pakistan. Probably best known because of the Nativity story, Frankincense – derived from the resin of a tree called Boswellia serrata and other species of the same – has an interesting history. In Hebrew, its name is levonah, meaning “white;” in Arabic, a closely-related language, it is ‘al-luban, a term referring to milk; the name of the modern country of Lebanon is derived from both. However, it came to be known as “frankincense” when crusaders – many of whom were French or “Frankish” – introduced it to Europe during the Middle Ages. Dried Frankincense is used in numerous ways, including the manufacture of perfume and aromatherapy; ancient Egyptians used burnt powdered frankincense as eyeliner. The burning of the dried cut and sifted boswellia serrata resin has also played a part in the religious rites of all three Abrahamic traditions. Boswellia is often used for arthritis, asthma and other inflammatory illnesses.
People use capsaicin, present in chili peppers, for natural pain relief. This substance can cause a mild burning or tingling sensation when a person applies it topically. A 2011 study notes the important role that capsaicin topical creams and patches play in pain management. Many pain-relieving products contain capsaicin. Researchers are not yet sure why it relieves pain, but some believe that it reduces the skin’s sensitivity to pain by working on the nociceptor fibers. These are nerves that carry pain signals. Habanero (Capsicum chinense), commonly known as “Yellow Lantern Chili”, is a species of chili pepper native to the Americas. Capsicum chinense chillies are well known for their exceptional heat. The alkaloid capsaicin is an active constituent in habanero peppers, generally recognized to be the hottest peppers grown. Capsicum chinense is sometimes confused with Scotch bonnets and other fiery peppers that grow in the same area, thanks to a misnomer that dates back to its original ‘discovery’ by European explorers. Some conditions often targeted with capsaicin are joint ailment, fibromyalgia, and headaches.
Feverfew, also called featherfew or bachelor’s buttons, is a medicinal plant. Traditional uses include treating fever, migraine headaches, rheumatoid arthritis, toothaches, and stomach aches, as well as increasing breast milk. Feverfew contains compounds that may reduce inflammation and muscle spasms. Some researchers believe that the key active compounds include sesquiterpene lactones and flavonoids. The American Migraine Foundation state that there are mixed results about how effective feverfew is, but that it is probably helpful for preventing migraine headaches. A 2011 research review concludes that feverfew flowers and leaves have analgesic, or pain-relieving, properties. Feverfew is found in many old gardens, and is also occasionally grown for ornament. It was native to Eurasia; specifically the Balkan Peninsula, Anatolia and the Caucasus, but cultivation has spread it around the world and it is now also found in Europe, the Mediterranean, North America and Chile.
