Hi Gang (hope this is the right forum, I felt it was time to move out of the newbie forum in the hopes of getting some more wisdom.) I am trying to suss out whether I just might not be reactive to kava. It's been 3 months now, and I've tried all the highly-recommended products on this forum. I had a bad reaction once to Hiwa (drank too much, it would seem, and wanted to tear my skin off and burst out of my head. Horrible night.) And once I felt a kind of "ahhhh" relaxation on KavaLoveTone tablets (took them many other times and not had the same experience.) But other than that, haven't felt anything really notable with any of them. I have tried, I'd say 5 or 6 different varieties to date, and my last shot is this sampler pack of Kalm with Kava instant products. I've gotten to where I can't bear the smell even of kava, it makes me barfy and it's a full-body revolt feeling when I drink it the traditional way, especially after the time of exposure needed to prepare it. I got two small bottles of the guava concentrate and two small tubs of micronized instant. I really like the idea, convenience and flavor of the concentrate. I mixed mine up with club soda and, other than a pleasant drink, nothing. Has anyone else used this with success? Do I maybe need to have more than 1 oz of it? I'm going to try the micronized tonight or tomorrow, but I feel like I'm quickly reaching the end of options and maybe it's just not meant to be for me. Sad!
