Kava Bar Owner
I don't see a big problem here, these "psychoactive compounds" work in the same direction, kinda.
CBD isn't psychoactive. It's a supplement that is beneficial for overall health and numerous conditions such as stress, insomnia, inflammation, and pain. It's not addictive and has little to no know side effects. It's a perfect addition to a kava product. It's not for everybody because some people have no interest in CBD, but if you want a product that gives you that kava feeling, and the health benefits of CBD, this is the ultimate stack.
I am with you @Kapmcrunk on this one. In general, I don't like the idea of mixing products but I think CBD+Kava is a good combination with no real risk. I have used BKH's extract along with a CBD full spectrum oil with pleasant results. I wouldn't go so far as to say CBD is not psychoactive, but at best it is mildly (very mildly) psychoactive in that there is a very calming effect that most people feel if the dose is large enough. My only complaint with CBD is that it is pretty expensive for a reasonable dose. Unless you want make your own extract from flower.@AaronCobra I admire your tenacity towards the purity of kava. I totally understand where you're coming from and I've fought for that position for years, however I've been more receptive to the addition of CBD to products for people it can help, as long as it's labeled clearly like this product.
Kava is and always will be kava, defined by straining ground root stock with water. This product is referred to as a "kavalactone product".
We include a range of kavalactone products in our topics because they are positively impactful, no matter how we feel about them. There are some people who find massive relief in these products, and as such makes them legitimate to us.
I hope you're with us for a long time with an attitude like that about the quality of your kava.
Who's questioning it here other than one member? We're on board. I've been a little iffy in the past just due to the association with CBD, but it's legal now and as such I have no issue with it at all.CBD without THC is in no way psychoactive. It's kind of funny that this would be a debate, really. If we combined kavalactones with Lion's Mane extract, another non-psychoactive supplement that helps improve health, nobody would bat an eye. The fact that we're questioning if it's okay to put CBD with kava seems to be the misguided remnants of our anti-drug culture.
