I love everything about this Kava besides the taste. But, I have never enjoyed the taste of Kava. I felt inspired to review this Kava on here noticing nobody else has, at least, in the way I am doing it. Overall effects are heavy, calming, sleepy, dreamy. Kind of what I expected based on Kavafied's description. It does have a heady aspect to it, but a very enjoyable, non-energizing one. This Kava is strong, but not so strong that you can't have it the night before a busy day. Some Kavas have really strong next day effects, this one is more of a gentle, subtle, calm that carries me throughout the next day up until I have it again. I have been Krunk on this Kava and thoroughly enjoyed it. It feels like a gentle massage on all of my muscles, and mentally, I remain focused, and relaxed. I'd actually recommend this to first time Kava users. It is strong, but in a very mellow way. Great for anxiety relief, for sure. Taste is definitely not great, but is tolerable up to a point. I can usually only have so many shells before they start wanting to come back up lol. In lower amounts, could make a good daytime Kava, but in typical doses used by most, absolutely an evening Kava. This one will not fail to give you a great nights sleep. Great Kava, Kavafied!
