Florida does not have any special licenses for usage of Kava as it is not considered an alcoholic beverage. You will of course need to get a business usage license, fire inspection, have building permits, check zoning etc. The following article has a set by step guide to obtaining all business licenses in Sarasota county: https://www.scgov.net/EconomicDevelopment/Documents/Doing%20Business%20in%20Sarasota%20County.pdf
See link for Florida Department of business and professional regulation: http://www.myfloridalicense.com/dbpr/
You would not need this unless you decided to serve alcoholic beverages. Kava is currently not a scheduled drug in the US.
