Tried candies for a week

    I tried the Ozia kava candies for a week and shared with my friends and family. I liked the taste very much, it was rooty and flowery [the ginger, chamomile, lemon balm, kava combo w/ the artificial sugars]. The kava was strong enough to have medicinal value, and one of my family members thanked me for a candy that stopped their heart from racing during a panic/anxiety incident.

    It has been mentioned before and is worth mentioning again here that they are using artificial colors and flavors [yellow #5, sorbitol, ect.] in the kava candy, but it does not entirely ruin the product if you can handle a little of that. Great product! I enjoyed on snowy hikes.

    Yes they are very good. So good it makes me think I wouldn't mind having a kava tincture on hand for some days

    Good stuff. Essential for when you can’t have grog, also nice while having grog. I once brought two packets to a concert and had a great show, and I think it helped me fix more in my memory of the event.

    although they really are too big to swallow all at once. I usually suck on them until I can chew them up

    It seems like it helps to leave it in your mouth. Perhaps some sublingual absorption going on.

    I agree, sublingual, and I love the taste - it helps me know there is Kava in it. Which is what I'm after!

    edit: Try this challenge...See how many you can dissolve in your mouth completely in a row before you surrender and refuse to eat another one! Don't start a new one until the last one is totally melted

    I put them under my tongue or between tongue and cheek, I think it kicks in quicker- usually two at a time. I use them if I wake up in middle of night and have trouble sleeping and it has worked 90% of the time.

    I like to leave one resting in my cheek, slowly melting, while I am having my last CBD flower vape session of the evening before bed. The taste and effect of the candy and the flower together is lovely. And it keeps my throat moist during the vape session too.

    The candies are the PERFECT entry level Kava mechanism for weary folks, but I can't do them much because my insides liquefy due to the artificial sugars these days.

    Yeah the sorbitol or whatever has a weird result.

    I do, lol... just heard great things about the candies and was hoping it'd be a good option for work, church, and stuff like that, but I've literally eaten an entire pack with zero effect.
    I'll just have to stick with regular stuff I guess.

    It's also a bummer, because I have to fast for closer to 8 hours to get an effect. I was hoping the sublingual absorption with the candies would get me through rough patches when I wasn't fasting.

    Oh well...
