This Thanksgiving, It's All Gravy

Just in time to take your Thanksgiving dinner to a higher level, Kiva would like to introduce you to our new limited-edition, cannabis-infused Turkey Gravy. This cheeky take on a normally mundane holiday staple features a groundbreaking, fast-acting technology that allows for faster THC absorption. Awkward family dinner conversation? In just under 15 minutes you’ll start feeling the effects, so you can sit back, relax, and let the holiday cheer wash over you. 

Gravy is made with cutting-edge technology that bypasses edibles’ normally lengthy trip through the liver, instead absorbing into the soft tissue and stomach. This allows the cannabinoids to take effect in a groundbreaking 2 to 15 minutes. Most other companies who have explored fast-acting technology have employed nanotechnology particles to speed up the process. While the nano molecules used in these edibles are small, they are massive compared to the individually-encapsulated molecules used in this approach. Not only are they isolated from other molecules they might interact with, they are small enough to be absorbed directly into the body’s endocannabinoid receptors- one molecule at a time. As a result, Kiva’s gravy offers one of the fastest-acting and most bioavailable cannabinoids available in edibles today.

On the heels of this gravy's limited run, we'll be officially launching this fast-acting technology in December with a cannabis-infused premium hot cocoa for the holiday season.

“Fast-acting edibles technology is an exciting industry innovation because it has the potential to change the way people use edibles, breaking down the barriers to entry,” said Kiva's Co-Founder and CEO Scott Palmer. “What better way to start than with America’s favorite Thanksgiving dressing?” 

Kiva’s single-serve gravy is infused with 10mg of THC and will be a hot commodity this holiday season. It uses traditional Thanksgiving ingredients like turkey stock, salt, onion and garlic, because we wanted to create a familiar taste with an uncommon ingredient- cannabis. Simply whisk the gravy powder with one cup of water in a saucepan, bring to a boil, and stir occasionally to achieve your desired level of thickness. Turkey Gravy packets can be found at all Sweet Flower (Los Angeles) and Grass Roots (San Francisco) locations, while limited supplies last.
