Weaker Kava?

    Hello,
    I've noticed that a few threads mentioned that a lot of Kava products have become weaker and weaker in relation to its potency over time (years- related to sales). I've seen mention of how it takes more Kava now than it used to in certain instances. Can anyone elaborate on this? I'm wondering how could that be if the Kava is still being harvested from the same fields and such?

    Thanks,

    The reason would likely be that kava is being harvested prematurely (is, 2-3 years instead of the more ideal 3-5). From what I hear more kava is being planted so I'm a few years this issue should be resolved.
