WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS IN KIN HIGH RHODE?
Kin High Rhode contains the following ingredients: purified water, xylitol, hibiscus extract, gentian root extract, orange peel extract, licorice root extract, bitter orange extract, GABA, tyrosine, citicoline, caffeine, 5-HTP, rhodiola extract, phenylethylamine, niacin, vitamin B6, folic acid, citric acid, potassium sorbate, xanthan gum, acacia gum.
WHAT ARE EUPHORICS MADE OF?
Euphorics are created from a stack of balancing adaptogens (herbs that manage stress), replenishing nootropics (compounds that enhance cognition), and nourishing botanics (plants that supply a buffer of nutrients). The only missing ingredient from euphorics is you — mood, hormones, and neurochemistry included — which has just as much influence on the effect of euphorics as what’s inside the bottle.
WHAT ARE ADAPTOGENS?
Adaptogens are herbs and fungi that manage stress. Used for thousands of years in ayurveda, a medical system originating in India, and Traditional Chinese Medicine, adaptogens adapt to what our bodies need to balance our hormonal response to stress in effort to reach homeostasis. This means the same adaptogen may have slightly different effects depending on your nervous system, but their primary goal is to restore balance on a cellular level.
WHAT ARE NOOTROPICS?
Nootropics are compounds — some natural and others synthetic — that enhance cognition. Dr. Corneliu E. Giurgea, the psychologist and chemist who coined the term, insisted that a nootropic should: enhance memory and ability to learn; help the brain function under disruptive conditions; protect the brain from chemical and physical assaults; increase the efficacy of neuronal firing control mechanisms; possess few or no side effects; and be virtually non-toxic. Nootropics work by targeting specific neurotransmitters in the brain like dopamine and serotonin to produce effects. Kin contains nootropics in microdosed amounts — about 1/10 of what is considered a typical dose — so you feel the effects without overdoing it.
WHAT ARE BOTANICS?
Botanics are plants that supply a buffer of nutrients. Equal parts feeling, flavor, and function, botanics harmonize with the adaptogens and nootropics by acting as layer of protection for the pleasure network of our brains. While other ingredients stimulate the brain, botanics works to replenish nutrients in your body, balancing your reaction so there’s not too much stimulus or too little nourishment in too fast a time. This helps to avoid the dreaded “crash” after the effects have run their course.
HOW DO THE INGREDIENTS WORK TOGETHER?
Because Kin High Rhode offers us a new way to feel — easing stress and stimulating bliss in one go — it requires a precise blend of nootropics, adaptogens, and botanics to craft. In combination, these ingredients give our body what it needs to replenish its dopamine, serotonin, and GABA supplies — neurotransmitters in the brain responsible for helping us feel relaxed, open, curious, and connected — while balancing hormones like cortisol and calming our parasympathetic nervous system to help us adapt to stress. The overall effect — lifted yet grounded, clear yet calm, blissful yet balanced — wouldn’t be possible without the symbiotic function of both herbal ingredients gathered from Earth and synthetic ones created in a lab.
IS KIN NATURAL?
Kin uses natural, plant-based ingredients whenever possible. All of High Rhode’s botanics and adaptogens came straight from Earth. Some of its nootropics are natural while others are human made, requiring a little alchemy to produce the right effect. In order to craft the feeling of euphorics — lifted yet grounded, clear yet calm, blissful yet balanced — we found that combining natural and synthetic ingredients produced the optimal effect. All of Kin’s ingredients are of the purest potency and highest quality available. If you have health questions, ask your doctor.
DOES KIN CONTAIN ALCOHOL?
Kin does not contain alcohol in any form. All bliss, no booze!
DOES KIN CONTAIN CAFFEINE?
Kin High Rhode contains 70mg of caffeine per 2oz serving to accelerate the absorption of nootropics and help your body metabolize them. It works in tandem with rhodiola rosea, an adaptogen which in a depleted state has the potential to revitalize mood. If you have a sensitivity to caffeine we recommend not to drink too close to bedtime.
IS KIN PERISHABLE?
Refrigerate your Kin after opening and drink within 7 days. If you choose to craft your own euphorics drink with other juices, sodas, bitters, and herbs, sip within an hour for best effects.
DOES KIN CONTAIN ALLERGENS?
Kin does not contain gluten, dairy, or nuts. If you have any concerns about the ingredients in Kin, ask your doctor.
IS KIN VEGAN?
All of the ingredients in Kin High Rhode are vegan.
HOW MUCH IS A SERVING?
One serving is two ounces, or about two shot’s worth.
DOES KIN CONTAIN SUGAR?
Kin High Rhode contains zero grams of sugar.
HOW MANY CALORIES ARE IN KIN?
Kin High Rhode has six calories per serving.
HOW DOES KIN WORK?
Kin Euphorics are designed to bring us back to bliss on a cellular level. Humans may have evolved from hunting tigers, but we still have a primal response to stress. An end of day deadline, the fight with your roommate, that jerk on the train: all prompt our brain to release hormones like cortisol and neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine to keep our body alert enough to deal. But our supply is limited. After a long day of “fight-or-flight” we’re running on empty and feel just as low, and need to restore to stay social. The ingredients in High Rhode (a precise stack of adaptogens, nootropics, and botanics) are known to balance the body’s response to stress and replenish the brain’s neurotransmitters to refill our pleasure tank. To go even deeper, we use technology called liposomal encapsulation — nanoscopic particles that deliver ingredients quickly and effectively — to make sure effects are felt where they’re needed. As we move from a mode of depletion (feeling less) to a mode of rising (feeling more), we can more deeply connect with others well into the night.
HOW LONG DOES KIN LAST?
Euphorics are different for everyone and depend on factors like how much sleep we’ve gotten, the last time we ate, or how stressed we feel. A typical rise begins within 15 minutes of drinking a single serving of Kin (about 2 oz) and lasts for about an hour. Additional servings will sustain — not intensify — our rise, giving us full control to dial in and out as we please. For best effects, refrigerate after opening and drink within 7 days.
WHAT IS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN KIN AND THE BRAIN?
The brain relies on neurotransmitters to carry signals between neurons and other cells in the body and patrol physical and psychological functions like sleep, appetite, mood, and focus. But by the end of the day, we’ve used up our supply and don’t have enough to thrive socially. Aided by Vitamins B3, B6, B9 and Citicoline — a naturally-occurring brain chemical that increases reaction time at a cellular level — our brain takes the nootropics in Kin and converts them into the neurotransmitters it needs. Tyrosine is converted into dopamine (what moderates pleasure and reward), 5-HTP is converted into serotonin (what moderate mood and social behavior), and Phenibut stimulates GABA activity to cue the central nervous system to relax. By activating the same parts of the brain as meditation, we can rise above the stress, nerves, and bad mood toward a more relaxed state, open and curious to connect.
WHAT IS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN KIN AND THE BODY?
Kin helps to mediate the “flight or fight” response that rules our daily existence. In response to acute stress, the body’s sympathetic nervous system activates due to the sudden release of hormones, resulting in increased heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing rate. Our ingredients are known to help mediate the intensity of this response by balancing out stress hormones and soothing the central nervous system. GABA slows signalling to relax the muscles and Rhodiola Rosea has been shown to reduce cortisol levels linked to stress, both of which effectively cycle through our bodies thanks to a dash of caffeine equivalent to ⅛ cup of green tea. Once our bodies return to homeostasis, we don’t feel compelled to fight or flee — and can just be with the people around us.
HOW MUCH IS TOO MUCH?
If it’s your first time trying Kin, start with a single 2 oz serving and increase slowly to find what’s right for you. While you won’t feel more intense effects with subsequent servings, you will feel the same effects for longer. Kin is not intended to be consumed every day and we recommend no more than 4 servings in 24 hours. If you have health questions, ask your doctor.
WILL KIN GIVE ME A HANGOVER?
You mean the throbbing head, queasy stomach, and fatigued muscles we experience after a night of too much alcohol? Short answer: no. The primary causes of hangovers include dehydration, blood acidity, and carcinogenic metabolites used when processing alcohol. Kin does not contain any carcinogenic metabolites, influence blood PH, or actively dehydrate. Water is essential to staying hydrated, so we recommend drinking plenty with your Kin for an optimal morning after.
CAN I MIX KIN WITH ALCOHOL?
Do not drink Kin with alcohol or any other mind or mood-altering substances. If you have health questions, ask your doctor.
WHAT IS KIN?
Kin is a brand born from the desire to unite all creators through meaningful connection. We believe in a night where social isn’t sinful and self-care doesn’t stop at sunset. It didn’t exist at the bar, so we created euphorics for humankind to give you a buzz without the booze.
WHAT ARE EUPHORICS?
Euphorics are a new kind of beverage made from balancing adaptogens (herbs that manage stress), replenishing nootropics (compounds that enhance cognition), and nourishing botanics (plants that supply a buffer of nutrients). Stack them together and you get euphorics that uplift our mood and enhance our perception so we can better connect with others.
HOW WILL I FEEL?
Euphorics feel like their name suggests. While not one-size-fits all, Kin High Rhode offers sensations of uplifting clarity, focus, flow, and calm. In contrast to the stress-inducing urban environments where we often dwell, euphorics help us rise above the mood, the nerves, and the chaos toward a blissful buzz you can feel. We call that feeling rising.
HOW DOES KIN TASTE?
Grounded in an herbaceous palette, Kin High Rhode has notes of earthy florals, bitter citrus, and warming spice. With a neutral base that mixes into any flavor profile, you can make High Rhode your own with some of our recipes.
HOW SHOULD I SERVE?
There are endless ways to enjoy High Rhode. Simply pour 2 oz over ice to keep it simple. Our favorite way to sip is to craft it into a drink of its own. Pour 2 oz over ice in a shaker of your choice. Add a citrus base (we love blood orange soda), spices to taste, and any bitters you like. Shake or stir to blend botanics and awaken euphorics. Top it off with seltzer and garnish with an edible floral. For more ways to serve, check out our recipes.
WHERE CAN I ENJOY?
Dinner parties, friend gatherings, happy hours — High Rhode is best when shared after dark. May we suggest one of our upcoming events?
