    For those of you who've developed a tolerance, how long of a break did you take to reset/lower it?

    In the beginning for me, one aluball shaken for a min was plenty. Several years in it now takes 3 aluballs shaken for 10 mins to get anywhere near where I want to be. Interesting that most people do not have this experience. I have not found that not drinking for a few days or a week does...

    Full Spectrum Krunk

    Unless I have a new kava to try, I always blend and love to try different combinations. It never occurred to me to mix more strains in smaller amts. I always do a ball of one...a ball of the other...and so on. BTW is it just me or did the vanuwaka get weaker when the price went up? Maybe it's...

    Is Canopy Botanicals Gone??

    I cancelled my order that was in 'pending' status for over 2 weeks and re ordered after you posted. I just got the invoice and paid it. I had been leaving VMs and sending emails every couple of days about my order and got no responses. Really strange given this vendor's usual responsiveness...

    Is Canopy Botanicals Gone??

    Is Canopy Botanicals Gone??

    The vanuwaka is my goto kava for strength! I ordered some 2 weeks ago and my order has been in pending status and I am unable to reach them via phone, email, or FB messenger. I ordered with a PO, which has always worked with an invoice sent to me to pay via paypal. This is very unlike this...

    Kava and Sensory Deprivation Float Spa?

    I have done floats several times and loved it. Have not tried it after kava but I think it would be helpful. It always took me the full hour to shut my mind chatter up!

    Aluball question

    Maybe I'll experiment w/ that. Problem is it's hard to get a consistent reading on kava from day to day. I just know 3 balls with 2 TBS each is usually what I need. Unless it's Vanuwaka! lol Trying out the 5 star from realkava tonight!

    Aluball question

    Why is 1 TBS per ball ideal? I've been doing 2 TBS per ball. Is the extraction less effective w/ 2 TBS?
