When I first started drinking kava, my preconceptions were different from how I see it now. As far as my preferences for kava types, here are the stages I have gone through over time: 1. Follow every review and examine them for what effects might bring the ultimate euphoria 2. Look for the heaviest roots that produce couch lock 3. Hangovers from heavy kavas, and a lack of euphoria/sleep produce an appreciation for balanced kavas I do appreciate a variety of kava, but I have found that I do not prefer highly heady nor highly heavy kavas. Even the heaviest of nobles are not something I want too often. Anyone else have similar experiences?
