    Has anyone had experience with using kava to help with headaches?

    I ended up drinking very little, but it was effective because it helped me get to sleep, so I was able to ride out the storm, so to speak

    Has anyone had experience with using kava to help with headaches?

    I was prepping a batch for later with my blender since I found my sieve, and after I poured it through the strainer and into the jar, I kind of licked the bowl. I felt a bit more relaxed, I’ll have a small sip later and see if it does anything. The throbbing isn’t as intense, but I think that’s...

    Has anyone had experience with using kava to help with headaches?

    i feel a cluster headache coming on, my eyes are getting swollen and the light hurts but I wasn’t sure if kava would help or if it would dehydrate me

    Aluball vs trad prep

    do you guys really find the aluball effective? I use the aluballs for two washes, but I’ll end up using a lot more kava to get any effects, vs when I make say 4 tbs trad prep, it’ll hit me a lot stronger. I never overfill the aluball. Am I supposed to do more washes with the aluball? I don’t...

    Is the "K" word a bad word here ?

    I like the kava culture so far, I’m kind of glad you have this rule. I have used the other plant, but I agree talking about other psychoactive substances can generate a different vibe. I like how kava is medicinal as well as spiritual

    Powdered Kava Review Squanch Kava Fiji Waka

    Thank you, I used the aluball, but I have realized I really need to do a trad prep. I used 6 TBS (by accident I meant to use 4) and there was enough to do 3 washes. The root still felt oily, so I kept massaging it under water. I’m working on drinking it now before my dental appointment but...

    Kava Preparation On collecting frozen aluball makas

    How do some of you collect makas? Do you throw all your used aluball makas in one container or separate them? I’ve been tossing my Borongoru in one freezer bag, and squanch’s Fiji Waka in another. Do you use a second wash with the aluball before freezing? I’ve been doing it twice, I feel like...

    Powdered Kava Review Savusavu Waka

    What does kava do for you then? I’m not sleeping 8 hours, but I’m sleeping some, and that’s better than none! I’m still learning, so eventually I’ll figure out how soon before bed to drink it. Last night I started too early. I think I fell asleep around 11:30-12:00am and woke up at 4am. I drank...

    Powdered Kava Review Squanch Kava Fiji Waka

    We're jammin' To think that jammin' was a thing of the past We're jammin' And I hope this jam is gonna last Its been 3.5 hours and the sedation has slowed down, but I still feel relaxed. I am so new to kava so I can’t really distinguish between heady and heavy, or this potable was so potent...

    Powdered Kava Review Squanch Kava Fiji Waka

    Thank you :) I’m actually feeling pretty sedated. Is it because I should have waited longer after lunch? Or is that the RT? I was smiley and I just finished my third shell and I’m sleepy not euphoric. I don’t particularly mind, it’s just a bit earlier than what I’m used to.

    Kava Preparation Can you help me fix my mistake?

    I managed to wait 5.5 hrs and I started the squanch. After the second wash I am putting the makas in a freezer bag for trad prep- is this how you do it? So far, I feel kind of sleepy, actually. Maybe I should have waited longer? When I made my second wash, I added a new ball with fresh kava...

    Powdered Kava Review Squanch Kava Fiji Waka

    @Squanch72 i don’t know how to rate anything on here, but I drank my first shell and so far this is how it’s been: So I chugged 8 oz, I waited 5.5 hrs after my last meal, I was too excited to keep waiting! I wasn’t expecting squanch until tomorrow, but since we are in the same state, it...

    Kava Preparation Can you help me fix my mistake?

    Honestly I don’t remember much, I just fell asleep and woke up incredibly relaxed and ordered in my lunch. One thing was that I also ate properly yesterday, and while you drink on an empty stomach, having a good diet is probably just as important. This evening when I try squanch’s brew, I can...
