I had the equivalent of 3 shells of Solomons on Sunday afternoon and had a cold beer an hour later. I am mellow and energetic this morning. No bad effects here. Maybe you are drinking it too late in the day. It does seem to have a lasting effect. If you mixed it with Koniak then all bets are off. That is a different kind of Kava all together.
no, it will not make you stimulated or anxious. But than again everyone is different, I am very sensitive to the anxious feeling that kava can give, and surprisingly a lot of them do that, however I am starting to suspect caffeine in high amounts throughout the day and than strong shells in the evening may have a reaction in a sense, like higher adrenaline or dopamine levels already or something, and than something in the kava aggravates it or something. not sure. I cant drink stone because of this, makes me edgy. I have tried virtually every kava, and this in my opinion has the best balance of clearheaded and relaxed, very close to what nambawan is like, without the intensity of it, and is replaced by perfect mellowness. nambawan is a little intense in my experience, the kind of intense that makes sex way intense. I am wondering if anyone has asked if this strain is back, or just leftover?
Just passing on my experience with Solomons the other day. While working at my desk in the afternoon, I planned on having 3 shells of Solomon and finishing with a shell of Koniak. Well, I did my first shell and immediately felt buzzed. Over the course of the afternoon, I took two more shells. When it came time to drink the Koniak, I was so sh__face that I felt queasy even looking at it. Anyway, I forced some down anyway (that's a good lad). Maybe I'm making it too strong or I have way too many Kavalactones in my bloodstream but I swear I was stoned out of mind before I touched the Koniak. And today I'm mildly stoned as a residual (tudie) effect. This I am enjoying. I just got my bag of Tongan from Rex so I'm hoping for a more uplifting effect so I can take my Kava and still be productive. Everyone is looking for something different in their Kava but I never thought I would ever complain about being TOO BUZZED on Kava.
