Stomach can't handle any of kava times current stuff

    Has anyone else noticed how harsh the more recent stuff from kava time is? I used to love kadavu and the first batch of Ras finest was great and mellow but last night I had 2 shells of it (that's like a starter dose for me) and my stomach is still hitting today. I literally had to go straight to bed. I had a similar thing when I tried it a few days ago.

    Kadavu has been causing me stomach issues too so I have to stick to one shell. Im not even ready to open my ambae after these experiences. It used to be ambae was a little harsh and I could only have a small amount but now they are all even harsher than that. Mind you I am still drinking shell after shell of KWK GHK and vinaka with no issues at all.

    Anyone else has this problem?

    I've only had good experiences with KavaTime. I drink their Kadavu regularly (just got a pound last week) and havent noticed any changes.
    It's pretty strong, I find I need much less root to get desired affects. Does it help to water it down a bit?

    We bought 7 pounds of the Taveuni's Secret when it went on sale. So far the first three pounds were delicious and creamy. Exquisite, even.

    I have the newest batch of Ra's and notice no difference. No stomach issue and still one of my favorite kavas

    Interesting. I might have to arrange a swap soon. If anyone has an offer they can pm me. I have almost a full lb of Ras finest and might also be interested in trading my kadavu (also almost full lb) and maybe even my ambae after I try it out.

    What kind of prep bag are you using?

    My kadavu that I got from them was fine.

    Using an 80 micron strainer and I'm also drinking like 7 other types of kava on rotation and none of the others bother me.

    That is odd. It's not even as though it's a particularly fine grind or anything is it.
