    Hello all,

    I just received my first order of kava today.

    I ordered 4oz of the micronized Tonga pouni Ono, 4oz of the Fiji loan Waka, and 4oz of the Vanuatu borongoru from kalm with kava.

    Anyone have any success stories or find any of these to be their favorite?

    I'll be using it for anxiety /social anxiety, to lift my mood, and to relieve muscle tension.

    The container says to mix 1 tablespoon with any beverage. Is this a good place to start? Mix with cool water?

    Let me know your thoughts. I'm excited to get on the kava train and really hope it works. I will also be looking to start weaning off the ssri I'm on, which I don't really think has even done anything for me.

    Welcome in the community!
    I went through bag of Pouni Ono, but have no experience with other kavas you listed. Keep in mind that Pouni is micronized, but the other two - if I'm correct - are not, so do not prepare them the same way as Pouni Ono.
    1 TBS may be much too little if you'll be having RT. Hope you won't, fingers crossed! Try one, and increase if there's no visible effect. Don't overdo it - if you feel nothing noticeable, stick to three or so TBS per day and keep it for a few days. In fact, consider starting with traditional grinds if you indeed have them - they're cheaper to work with and it's less a loss if you'll use them for getting through RT.
    Unfortunately I did the whole bag while on heavy RT, so I have no opinion at all. It's getting superb reviews however, so it should be good.
    Even if you'll be having RT, the anxiety relief effect should be marginally visible from the beginning.

    All 3 of the products I got are micronized. Thanks for the info.
