Hello! I have some new questions. I've been using Kava for a month. I trade off using an Alu Ball and 80 micron mesh strainer bag for prep. I notice a sludge collects at the bottom of the pitcher I keep the prepared drink in after kneading so I do know some root is getting through the strainer bag. If anyone has time to help out with some insight, that would be wonderful. I have just started seeing some skin effects - red spots on stomach, kind of a burning itchy feeling on forearm and legs, and dry fingertips - just in the evening after drinking kava. Is that because my bag mesh is too large? Should I get new ones? Also, is 75 smaller or larger holes? I can't seem to put that together looking through the options available on the internet. I use plenty of root powder and knead for quite a while (10+minutes, till it is no longer slimy feeling). I feel effects - if I drink quite a bit - for a relatively short amount of time. So far, I've tried Kalm with Kava and the cheapest for the amount on Amazon - Wakakon brands. I am willing to try others, I just thought since I don't know the difference anyway as a newb, I would just start there. I have read through many other threads on this forum and I don't want to get "krunk" necessarily, but I can't say I feel much after 15-30 minutes. Am I doing it wrong? I have had enough that I get a mild headache or mild nausea and then stop immediately, but on the way, I can't say I experienced very noticeable anxiety reduction or relaxed/euphoric feelings. I am aware of the RT so thought maybe I should keep trying, but it doesn't seem to change much. THank you!!
