Kola description and origin:

Originally from Western Africa, where the nuts of the Kola tree was traditionally used as a stimulant, it was introduced into the Americas by the slaves. By the 19th century Kola was widely used in America to treat a wide variety of problems including headaches, diarrhea, fevers and pneumonia.

In Atlanta, Georgia a pharmacist, John Pemberton, mixed a concoction consisting of kola extract and coca extract as a headache and migraine remedy which he sweetened and carbonated to make it more palatable.  A businessman called Asa Chandler bought the rights to the product and started the now world famous Coca-Cola company.
