Pumpkin Spice Cacao Bliss
Here is a twist on the timeless fall favorite: the pumpkin spice latte. While it may be surprisingly contentious, celebrated by some, and humorously mocked by others, here at Xula, we wholeheartedly embrace it.
Our unique Pumpkin Spice Cacao Bliss combines the soothing attributes of cacao and CBD to elevate your sipping experience, cocooning you in a layer of relaxation and serenity.
Moreover, cacao's rich iron content makes it an ideal choice, especially for individuals going through menstruation. Simultaneously, the inclusion of spices, particularly ginger and nutmeg, brings their reputation for warming effects and potential relief from menstrual cramps.

These ingredients unite to create an uplifting and heartwarming experience, transforming your sips into an aromatic journey that nurtures both your senses and your overall well-being
