I'm looking into buying my first kava, but I'm not completely sure where to start. Everything I've read seems to say that it will vary in effects, yet this isn't being well documented by vendors, so I'm hoping to get some help here. I want something to drink during the day that won't put me to sleep, and make social situations easier. I don't have any real social anxiety, but I am generally more reserved and would like to make it smoother for myself. (I enjoy being an introvert but sometimes wish my extroverted side would show more). I've also read that kava can increase creativity, which greatly appeals to me as a musician, though this seems little mentioned so I'm not sure how common it is. Aside from these desires I would like one that's more potent, as I don't plan on using it everyday, more just on occasion. As a side note I am hypothyroid and take synthroid (levothyroxine). Haven't able to find anything about it in combination with kava, just one reddit post stating no interactions. It's a hormone so I wouldn't expect anything, but if anyone knows about this please let me know. Anyway, I'm looking for advice on the best strain for me, any help is appreciated.
