Hi. I strongly recommend the dead simple, blender method, with sunflower lecithin added.I’m new to Kava and bought my first batch.Can someone tell me the best way to consume it ?
Avoid micronized, it’s a harsh way to take kava. Buy medium grind and prepare it in the traditional way by kneading and squeezing. Or instant from a good vendor is good as well...A few questions- like is the Kava micronized, what cultivar? where from? Assume it is dry , not fresh frozen?
I like to have 6-7 6-8 oz shells over a few hours spacing them out by 10-30 min. First two shells i drink back to backRandom Question - what is the typical starter dillution for kava? I did 2 tbsp for 20oz/ 600ml water and reading this, I am thinking that might be a bit light. Granted, easing into it might be the smart thing to do. That said, how does eating prior/not eating interact with it? Do people prefer drinking all at once, or sipping through out the day? (Personal experiences I mean, obviously it varies depending wildly on a host of variables... still gives me more information)
It has. To me, one of the greatest benefits of using kava is that it helps promote weight loss instead of weight gain unlike most substances. You drink alcohol and you get weight gain due to the high amount of energy in the beverage, and you want to eat carb heavy foods in order to sober up. You use THC and you get the munchies and become to lazy to make a nutritious meal and eat Ruffles, Cheetos and Little Debbie Cakes. When you drink kava, you really don't want to eat afterwards except for some light fruit and veggies.Congratz!!! That's no easy feat...I wonder if kava made any difference?
I don't want to sound like a professor, but please not this garbage vitamins. Many vitamins are useless in the wrong form, ugly additives on the other hand and so on... some vitamins are even toxic (the wrong vitamin E f.e.).But that can be fixed by a cheap multivitamin that you can purchase a 30 day supply of at walmart for five or six bucks.
I usually start with what is recommended on the package and then experiment over time depending on the results. There are different thresholds and it is different for every kava. Adding or subtracting a tablespoon at a time will help you find the sweet spot. Everyone's body chemistry is different. I use different kava's for different purposes. But they all have different windows related to dosage. Some have "go to sleep" windows in an hour and others could be 2-3 hours later. Experimentation is the only way to know. So get down to it and experiment. If you want to be more accurate, use a food scale. I also recommend keeping some notes at first. Do some research on chemotypes and find out which ones you want to experience.Whether it be undesirable side effects, such as nausea, hangover, etc, or negative long-term health effects, how much kava is too much kava ?
And it's a mulit-part question. Both on a daily basis, and on a long-term measurement, such as weekly, etc. (if there's a difference answer for each example)
Does your body basically tell you and give you signs when to quit, such as the feelings of nausea, etc ?
Or do you go by another measuring stick when determining when to "cut off" the kava ?
