    fwiw I just scoop up a bit with the tip of a spoon and put it under my tongue to absorb sub-lingually. Experiment for what is right for you, going easier at first, but I find about 3x the size of a matchhead is right for me and lasts 20 - 30 min. There's enough doses in a little jar I find the $25 price to be quite reasonable, considering how high quality it is. That'll mean anywhere from 15 - 25 spoons for me, depending on moods.

    Do you notice a difference in onset sublingually vs just straight ingesting? Do kavalactones work like that? I know of a marked difference from personal experience having compared methods with benzos in the past. I have some of this now but I haven't busted it open yet. Was going to experiment this weekend to see if this might not be good for a "Break Glass In Case of Emergency" situation at work.

    I find that sublingually it hits much more quickly and is more euphoric. Otherwise it takes 10 - 20 minutes and is broader. It really is nothing much like grog so I definitely do NOT recommend it for anxiety or for any needs at work. It's more a strictly pleasure thing. For work I would recommend actual grog or the Kava Kava Candies.

    Incidentally, the most pleasurable way to enjoy the Polynesian Gold, IMO, is after drinking a little bit of grog. Again, this is strictly for pleasure. It gives a wonderful feeling of euphoria and peacefulness.

    As for "do kavalactones work like that?" my answer would be: they do when processed. It's not the case with medium grind or grog. OK, one exception, I find when chewing dried pieces of waka or lawena that it is good t hold them under your tongue until saliva softens them up enough for chewing. The kava flakes I make, from sediment left at the bottom of jars and shells of grog, that I use exclusively sublingually, although they are fine milled into powder and made in a drink. I find a flake or two nder the tongue hits in a minute or two and lasts for 5 - 10 minutes It's really a small amount of kava, but feels wonderful. Of course, one can have a jar of flakes that one enjoys many times during a session of drinking grog, and I do that sometimes.

    I bought the Polynesian 70% gold from Amazon. Just got it today. Can you tell me the best way 2 use it and how much. I got a very tiny spoon with it.

    just a regular spoon will work, you just want the tip.

    I would start with something the size of a small pea, or half of a large pea. Matchhead is too small unless it's like those giant kitchen matches.

    put it under your tongue and just let it sit there and dissolve, should take 2 or 3 minutes. Within 5 - 10 minutes effects should kick in. Pulsing soft warm waves washing down you from the top of your head would be about it, and a sense of calmness or peacefulness. Feels real nice.

    If you hate the taste, you could throw it in a coconut or milk based smoothie, that works fine, but takes a tad longer to feel the effects.

    Effects last about 20 minutes. Try not to do anything else distracting, so you can focus on how good it feels.

    FWIW I like to have some when I am already drinking grog, feels extra nice

    fwiw IMO though I have no doubt Doug really enjoyed the giant dose he took in his review vid but that is way too big for people just trying it. Sure, after 10 times maybe up the dose if you feel comfortable, but that was really a monster dose he took.

    I got my jar of Polynesian gold today and tried it but I got no effect from it. Can someone tell me what amount I should be taking and if it should be sublingual?

    Try 1/4 teaspoon. Fyi, extracts are better once you break through RT.

    After my post yesterday I opened a new little jar and followed my own instructions to the letter. It was amazeballs. Soooo-weet. Exactly as described, intended, and desired.

    most of the extracts ive had have all been a consistency i would call coarse peanut butter. Soft but not runny or hard with fine grade sand paper like particles in it.

    I hope I can get the same results as you. In your reply to me, you said the letters RT. What does that mean?

    Forgot to say... extract will get softer in warm weather and harder in cold. I prefer mine refrigerated.

    This is my third day using Polynesian gold and I still do not feel anything. I take suboxone every day and I am wondering if that could be the problem.

    Possibly. I think I remember reading a thread about that last year, but not sure.
