Bula Kava has hit one out of the park with this extract. Taste: The honey/vanilla is strong up front, and then it quickly comes in with a potent punch of what I think is one of the best fresh kava flavors I've ever experienced outside of...well...drinking fresh kava. Mouth instantly numb as well. It's packed with kavalactones. Effects: If you've ever had extracts in the past, this one is 100% on par with the strength we've grown accustomed to. A heady, light, more euphoric kava buzz with very little sedative properties. Classic kava extract properties. My wife had some and said it kicked her normal KWK drink session into overtime. Texture: It's absurdly smooth. Nothing like kava extracts in the past. No chunky wax globs. Excellent use of emulsifiers. Overall: This is absolutely worth buying, if not for the effects, then for the taste alone. If you've never tasted fresh kava, this is about as close as you can get. Albeit fresh kava doesn't have vanilla and honey, one taste of this and you'll see what I'm saying.
