    Why the clapping?

    I've got theories but would like to know the reason the Fijians do it...

    Can I hear from those who max out at one shell?

    Hey friends, just wondering about others like me. I can drink a fair dose of kava, but only in one go (that's one giant shell a day, not multiple shells over a couple hour session). If I try and top up or even drink 12 hours later, the nausea hits me like a bomb. Next day I'm fresh and ready to...

    Does the color of kava indicate any traits?

    For you kava buffs...there is a pretty huge range of kava browns out there, and just wondering if this predicts anything. I've noticed that Hawaiian awas are often lighter in color, and often the flavour of lighter kavas is less pungent--the very worst tasting kavas have been the darkest root. I...

    Maximum micro dosage

    Hello kava friends, As mentioned in other threads I'm trying to break through the mini-RT I have from switching strains a little while ago. I've gone through close to 24oz of KwK Loa Waka micro, taking between 3-4 tbsp twice a day (level measuring spoon). Should I try taking more to break...

    Kava potentiates kava

    So I was taking KK lateral root instant, 4tbsp with a second session of 2-4tbsp, since Feb (all I could access in Aus). Reasonable effects that lasted an hour, predictably, but had some maka side effects in the end. Last two weeks I've been on 2-6 tbsp of KwK instant, gone through 500g and...

    Finding the sweet spot...

    Ehhh I'm not really sure what I'm looking for here. Advice? Maybe just sharing the learning curve? (always have a learning curve when I switch a batch, but what I learn is rarely applicable to the next time!) I've gone through 8oz in the last week of KWK Loa Waka micro after switching from lat...

    Broken benzo brain needs more kava

    I just saw this posted in an older thread... "Your neurotransmitter system, specifically with GABA, is deprived or not working well due to [long term benzo use]. It'll take a bit more kava to get you relaxed than it takes most people." IS THIS WHY I NEED SO MUCH? I've been frustrated as to why I...

    Busted! and...totally fine?

    Here's hope for the Aussies (dumb luck is real!). Been saving awhile to get a shipment over...nearly 2kgs of micro. It got picked up by the Australian Border Force (customs). I could see it had been recalled to customs with my tracking no. Held my breath waiting to hear if it would be a slap on...

    Makas risk assessment

    I love my quality kava, but I can't always afford it, and there's always a legal risk mail ordering any kava to Australia. I take kava medicinally- it's literally a lifesaver- and am sometimes dependent on the best one I have cheap and legal access to here (Taki Mai powdered)(sadly). It's not a...

    Never say Never; finally hit with dermo

    3 years daily kava use no problem, then bam. My immunity was down the last fortnight with a virus but kept shelling, reckon that had a lot to do with it. I'm taking coconut oil, fish oil, zinc, and applying calendula oil topically which is taking some of the burn out of it. Not brave enough to...

    Hello! and a question I haven't seen asked before

    Hi! I'm new to the forums, but been drinking kava for three years now, pretty much daily. It's been a lifesaver and got me off a hella lot of psych meds that were making me very ill. I've learned a lot from these forums on the journey, so thank you! I'm in Australia. Sigh. This has made it a...
