I did not get good results from this kava initially. I used my usual blender method and it left me nauseas and lacked the social and happy effects I look for. Started making this traditional prep and it works much better, still needs to be mixed for me though. strong kava. I love heady kavas and this has some head to it but it is also full spectrum in that it encompasses the body in it's range as well. it's not a heavy kava, but it's a more wibby wobby kava. You might lose your balance.
