    Hmmm might have to give cactus kava a try.

    It all looks good until you factor in the shipping cost. My shipping in the USA is free. This fact makes the prices seem a bit un real or not true. You should factor in the shipping if you truly want to get the "General Price of Kava" Edit-- 4-5-2019 Because of the USPS raising their price so many times over the years and their most recent one was a sizeable one, I had to start charging shipping.

    In the past I found cactus kava to not be very potent. It was still good for what it is though, just not necessary a good value for your dollars. Ultimately it was still kava and didn't make me sick, so there's not really anything wrong with it.

    But you don't include bulk discounts right? [Edit: I mean it would be weird if you did, given your concern with kava bars buying up all your stock with bulk purchases.] With some other vendors you can buy in bulk to save money on the shipping, which brings the effective price significantly below the cost of 1lb + shipping. There's not really a simple way to give the "true value" in a single number.

    The free shipping is definitely worth mentioning on the chart though and it looks like that's been added if it wasn't there before.

    Good call. I'm in the process now of adding whether shipping is included for each vendor.

    You can watch me edit it live via that link.

    Agreed on that. It will still rely on the individual reading the chart to research shipping rates, as they change. I'm going to do my best to continue to keep up with these prices so we can have an ongoing list. Vendors please correct me where I'm off, or I can set the doc to allow you to edit your own section if you'd like.

    Uhuh, and the shipping is going to be a bit different for everyone since we're in different locations. It's still a cool chart though. Going through the various reviews, looking up prices, etc can take a very long time so this simplifies a step.

    Added Quantity discounts* for purchase of 2 lbs. Also, added field for coupon codes.

    *Listed discounts on their website. Any bulk discounts over two lbs please contact the vendor directly, as they may have a volume discount.

    I was very satisfied with the service and the root I have bought from cactus. I especially like the malolo.

    With all due respect, every other vendor uses USPS Priority 2 day shipping while you ship First class mail which tends to take twice as long to get anywhere. But yeah it's free. I'd prefer to pay for Priority and get it 3-4 days earlier.
  13. Gourmet Hawaiian Kava

    Gourmet Hawaiian Kava Kava Expert Kava Vendor

    I use first class for small orders but Priority mail for over 80% of my orders. "Both are FREE" I think a bit of a wait, because I live in the middle of the Pacific ocean, is worth the wait for Farm Fresh kava that is grown and made in the USA. (y)

    That's odd, I've asked you about priority mail via PM and I don't recall you telling me that. But wonderful, good to know.

    I don't recall either but I have always done it this way since I started Gourmet Hawaiian Kava. And always free shipping in the USA. Aloha.

    What amount of kava qualifies for Priority shipping?

    Just keep the shipping rates quoted a single common location and everyone can adjust their location to it. Kinda like GMT is to timezones.

    Last time I got GHK it was six pounds in a Priority Mail box. Got 4 more pounds coming just today. Whichever way it comes, if's gonna be coming on island time. No big deal either way.

    After checking my trash bin I can confirm that my recent GHK package was USPS Priority 3 day. I can also confirm that I ordered kava from 3 different vendors on the same day (two of which ship from the lower 48) and got all three orders on the same day.

    Drink enough Hawaiian ʻawa and you will discover the magical seventh kavalactone. The ancient Hawaiians valued its ability to cause a state known as ainokea.
