Can we talk about Kava for a bit? I've had such good luck with Kratom, I am wanting to try other natural plant medicine such as Kava. Never had it before but doing my research on it and it sounds like it might do the trick while taking a tolerance break from Kratom. What's your favorite way to make/strain your Kava drink? Favorite vendor? Seems like it is everywhere. I found a shaker cup with a strainer ball that looks really convenient, also the micronized instant Kava looks nice but more expensive than powder.

Hey friend ,

Kava is a great herb , really helps ease tensions , helps to shift down a gear or 2 .... stick with noble kava , that’s the kind you want ... also might take a handful of times to feel it’s effects ... has a reverse tolerance thing... unless you use a high kavalactone extract .. I’ve been told no reverse tolerance with that!!

Please Let us know how it goes !!!

Take care

Thanks for the info. It looks like you don't consume the powder like we do with Kratom, Please share your method on how to prepare it. Thank You.

I used the big nylon strainer bag that one of the well known Kava suppliers sells.

Before that I used Kava extract, and today I still use Kava extract. Like many others, I use Bulk Supplements, and I buy through Amazon because I get free shipping, and 5% back by using their sponsored credit card.

500 grams for $36.95, and a single dose is one gram.

I tend to use aroundb3-4 TBS of nicely ground kava in around 12-16 oz of Luke warm water in a jar .... a little dash of milk ..( fat is good to draw out the good stuff) shake the jar off and on for approximately 10 minuets , strain through a cloth napkin, bandana ect ...

Drink up your brew .... I drink half of the brew in one sitting ... a little later I drink the rest

That’s the way I do it , works good for me , others may throw it in a blender or massage by hand

Thanks all for sharing, I was just looking at the Bulk Supplements Kava but was disappointed to see they are adding Maltodextrin as fillers to their powder which is maybe why there price is really good.

Yeah, any company that gives you the extract in a powder or in a capsule has to use something to apply the extract to. Some companies might use liquid (glycerin and lecithin) in a capsule (Gaia Herbs), or an extract in an alcohol solution (Herb Pharm), but even those who don't use maltodextrin as their carrier will use something like rice powder, and that's basically pure carbohydrate. Even Nature's Answer, which is a premium brand, uses rice powder in their capsules.

I once had some highly concentrated Kava extract that was a paste (Polynesian Gold), but the price for the amount of kavalactones I got made it too expensive for me to reorder. It is a premiere way to take Kava though. You just dab the paste on your gums, or under your tongue.

I just have non-micronized Kava, fresh ground, a bit thicker than typical kratom. I use it in smoothies, tea, and sometimes just with milk.

My favorite is straight into chai latte.

I also like kanna, mullungi, and blue lotus
