Way back in November 2009 I wrote about a soda that claimed it could relieve your insomnia. Well, now it seems there is a new 'anti-energy' drink on the market. 'Drank' is a relaxation drink that has been referred to as 'liquid pot' or 'weed in a can'. Its makers claim that it is 'all natural' - containing a blend of melatonin (which the FDA has not approved for use as a food additive), valerian root and rose hips.
However, one doctor has labelled the drink as, 'a little bit frightening'. In addition to being packed with sugar, rose hips and valerian root come with potential side effects of headaches and nausea. Valerian root may cause liver damage if taken on a long term basis.
