For Kava to be Potent it has to be Stronger than 30% Extract for sure. I have tried PDO's 90% Kava & KratomEye's 70% Kava & Both were Fantastic.

I am wondering when people make the Kava Drinks they just use Plain Kava & not the Extract, How Potent is Kava by itself when making a Kava Drink? I have heard that it is very hard to find Quality Kava Root Powder.
If anybody has any Questions about Kratom please private message me or make a Post & I will be glad to answer as soon as I can usually within 24 hours if not sooner. I'm usually on really late at night Between Midnight & 5am.

Afaik it's likely to be micronized (ground to dust)high quality kava root. It should mix well in any beverage with some stirring, and toss and wash is doable. I'm trying to remember how potent it can be but I'm just not sure. Maybe 7%? 10% for uber quality? Being so micronized it should be readily absorbed by your body.

I just checked, and the micronized I ordered from Amazon is still being sold, though not at the deep discount I got it for (it's going for 80% more now).

But here's the helpful reply the seller gave to an inquiry regarding potency.

The Highest Kavalactone level for Natural Dried Kava roots is between 8 to 15% and all things vary in nature (so no such thing as standardized). Standardized means that this is a chemically processed Kava EXTRACT where there are many CONCENTRATIONS like 30% and Much, Much More Greater. Better Living Products ZetaWize BRAND is made from Aged PURE KAVA Roots with No Additives. It is Not an Extract but rather finely milled root powder which is closer to what most of the traditional folks drink throughout the South Pacific. The only similarity is that Extracts start with kava but distill or concentrate it via different chemical processes to yield these higher percentages you refer to. see less

And regarding servings. They included a link, but it's dead now.

Serving Size is dependent upon how you are planning on using the product. For instance, do you want to make a traditional bowl or simply a quick glass? How strong do you like your kava? Some folks use as little as 1/8 teaspoon per glass! So it depends.


I get the impression that a half teaspoon could be a good serving for newcomers, so out of caution I guess do a test with an eighth, then later a quarter, teaspoon. Some experienced users bang away a teaspoon or more at a time.

Several claimed that it doesn't mix all that well with water, it needs to be shook up, or stirred, a lot.

Lol, I really can't remember how it was for me.

When I had 80% pure extract the only somewhat helpful suggested serving size was "a match head". I'd put that between cheek and gum, and IIRC I'd use a bit more than a match head. Under the tongue might be better.

Funny enough I still have the container it came in, and just last night I used it to store two screws I have to put back in to something I'm returning under warranty.

I have that Kind of Kava Before. I have always just Tossed N Washed it. My Dose was about 3 grams I think when I used it. I would start with less than 2 grams to see how it affects you.

My Dose for the 90% Kava was about 150 MG - 200 MG I Think. I would start out with about 100 MG or Less. I just Tossed N Washed it like Kratom Powder but I you can make a Drink out of it if you wanted. An Accurate Milligram Scale is Highly Recommended with this Potent Kava.

I think you will Love this Kava. It is the Best Kava I have Tried. It's Potent enough to where you can Actually Feel the Subtle Effects more Profoundly if that Makes Insense!:dry: :pinch:
