This is probably my favorite Kava. The effects work really well with me. My muscles relax, but not too much. It is light like a lot of the Tongan roots. I find it a little stimulating which I enjoy. I don't feel too spaced out or too euphoric. Even with lots of this root in me, I can be very productive, but really with the Kava vibe. It is a Waka, making it strong, and I love this. I use less Kava on this one but it is nice squeezing less root, and getting a better effect. 3-5 heaped Tablespoons is all I use. I find the taste extremely smooth, and quite enjoyable. The taste is very clean, and I feel the effects match that. A very smooth, strong, and excellent Kava. I also sleep very easily with this Kava, and easier than with sedating Kavas. I don't find this Kava sedating, but it helps calm the mind, and body to drift away.
