Hoping for some advise. I have the same kava in micronized and in medium grind. When I take the micro, the effects are pretty great with a nice long initial feeling which is what I like best. But when I prepare the medium grind the beginning pleasant effects don't happen, it just sort of becomes that feeling you get later. I am wondering what I am doing wrong or can change to make the medium grind have that same initial powerful rush. Of course no prep involved with micro. When I prepare medium I put in blender (ninja) and blend for at least 10 minutes. Then I strain through the bag it a bowl and hand kneed it for at least 15 minutes. I am using plenty of kava so that is definitely not the problem. I don't heat the water. Don't know if that is good or bad. Would appreciate what error I'm making preparing the medium grind. Micro I make 2 big tablespoons for 1 big cup. With medium grind I use about 5 to 6 big cups of water and about 9 to 12 tablespoons of medium grind. Thanks!
