our Roots run deep
located so far in order of vendor website, vendor posted here in their subforum, or from: http://www.kavalibrary.com/Kava-Consumer-Guide.html www.kavalibrary.com/Kava_Report_Short.pdf considered as a last source since I could not find if they had tested (and have COA somewhere) or if it was vendor reported to them (last update back in 2018).
a bit of the way in i dropped the heady/heavy/balanced designation as it is subjective (imo) and often not stated by vendor, rather in customer comments which can be all over the place. although i do feel this is a good info to know, strong/light, day/night, calm/energetic, heady/heavy but likely better determined by consumer lending more value to learning their preferred chemotypes so as to establish what does what in comparing effects.

edit: attaching file since pasted table is massive wall of text and cells.. won't allow .ods extension (like MS office Excel, but from libreoffice/openoffice) will export to html pdf and xls see if theycreate less work for merging the info.

Bula!

that's awesome, thank you for trusting.
but.. took a year and a half to shut down a decade old gmail account (from the beta test days lol) which completed start of the year, cant go back, brother, just cant.

but do have riseup.net for email, can verify etc, not sure how (is it google docs) it works, had a couple hoops for joining a yahoo group some time back. cant go back to gmail though and riseup earns every penny of my donations with what services they provide. i'll send you my riseup and see if it works lol.

All pricing and availability up to date as of 6/5/2020 @ 9:20AM CST.

Not much changed other than Gourmet Hawaiian kava now having two instants available, and KWK added Loa Waka back to the micronized and medium grind offerings.

Also, I owe a big "thank you!" to @hightides42 for their help on attaching many of the chemotypes.

Bula!

hey Kapm, was doing another scrub of chemotypes, have been on close watch for Cactus Kava 'Eva' variety (as it sounds to match Borogu from KWK, my partner's fave), anyway, noted it showed available on ss, rechecked site and they still out so i lined it out on ss just now.

I suspect we will be seeing another month or three of empty seller shelves as folks go to restock whatever comes available, be quick or be left thirsty! :arghh:

Thanks for fixing that! My process can get a little bumpy especially if I decide to tackle it between helping customers.

The amounts are dwindling by the day it seems. I'm going to check them daily to keep up with the quickly changing supply.

Vendors which seem to be in stock regularly during this time.
  • Squanch Kava
  • FijiFresh Kava
  • Kava Society NZ
  • Kava Vinaka
  • Nakamal @ Home
  • Root of Happiness
  • Bestfiji Kava
  • Kavafied
Vendors completely out of kava
  • Bula Kava House
    • Seems he's been out for an extended time now. Sorta concerned.
  • Gourmet Hawaiian Kava
    • There's always more growing.

i'm not the guy to actually get it done, but it sure seems logical that cells can be "auto check&update" sort of formula/script or somesuch? (maybe 1x/day so as to not get blocked). Would be tedious if lengthy formula because each will be custom, but damn handy tool to have, especially lately~

so as to not do double work I'll start leaving comments for days I check availability, we are still liking KWK and have been heart and mind captured by GHK so watching them close and couple other vendors with same/similar chemotypes we're preferring. Want to jump deep into TKS(NZ) but need to see the kilo bought near 8 weeks ago and lost at internation arrival in usps, cant take losses like that and will pay more for assured (and insured) shipping. my will is almost broke though, want to get 2kg in this sale almost over, and know its not Henry's fault, it is US mail handling that i am concenred with, at least anything us customs looks at:/

Hey, I'm all for any type of innovation you think could make our job easier in regards to the prices. I'd love for it to autoupdate.

Updated again today. Kavatime has a few options available for purchase again including one micronized option. Removed a few kavas from ROH as they went out of stock from when I checked yesterday. Their stock easily changes faster than any other vendor.

Updated

GHK - Mahakea Medium Grind back in stock. That's pretty much the only change.

Updated list. No changes to stock, however BKH is in the process of restocking.

*Edit: ROH Updated stock on several kavas

What To Expect In The Coming Weeks From Bula Kava House!

We Anticipate Having Kava Available Soon!


We have been sold out of much kava recently due to difficult shipping logistics from the Pacific Islands. Unfortunately, all passenger planes were grounded. Freight from the Pacific Islands typically goes on passenger planes, so this has presented a challenge.
Our large shipment of kava is in the US now; it is going through customs and FDA clearance. We hope to have this available in the next two weeks.
The following kava blends will be available when once we recieve our shipment: Nambawan, 11 Year Waka, Nangol Noble, Melo Melo, and Vanuatu Instant Green Tea.
We are working very hard to keep stock coming in and greatly appreciate all of your patience and understanding!

that's a lot of work Kapm! I tried searching for a script, formula or something for excel docs to update cells with info from websites and have come up with nothing of value. consider perhaps to update once a week, versus daily, as inventories seem to be reestablishing and even stabilizing across the board.

haven't done edit to doc for a bit, was updating website links last. Today corrected name for Kava Time's Kadavu to Gourmet Kadavu Waka and added chemotype 643251 after vendor cleared up my confusion between reported here vs on their website.
