What is Kava? 2016-10-26T13:14:56+00:00

Piper Methysticum; commonly known as Kava, is a plant that grows throughout most of the South Pacific Islands. The native people have been drinking infusions of the Kava root for thousands of years. Kava promotes a relaxed atmosphere and is often consumed at social and diplomatic ceremonies.

For many, kava helps calm nerves, relax muscles, lift spirits and promote sociability. Kava brings natural relaxation that helps ease stress – no need for alcohol or sedatives.

What are the effects of Kava? 2016-10-26T13:14:56+00:00

In a traditional setting, one can feel the effects of a moderately potent kava drink within 2 – 3 minutes and that lasts for up to two hours. Some report effects lasting up to two days after ingestion, including a feeling of mental clarity, patience and an ease of acceptance.

The sensations, in order of appearance, are slight tongue and lip numbing, mildly talkative and sociable behavior, clear thinking, calmness, relaxed muscles and a sense of well-being. The numbing of the mouth is caused by the two kavalactones; kavain and dihydrokavain which cause the contraction of the blood vessels in these areas acting as a local topical anesthetic. Some report that caffeine, consumed moderately in conjunction with kava can significantly increase mental alertness.

How do you prepare Kava for consumption? 2016-12-07T09:21:12+00:00

Thanks to our exclusive patented Kava Micronization System©, you can prepare the same kava drink without all the bother or mess. Kava King™ Kava can be mixed with almost any beverage, such as milk, juice, or water.

In Vanuatu, a strong kava drink is normally followed by a hot meal or tea. The meal traditionally follows after the drink so that the psychoactives are absorbed into the bloodstream quicker. Traditionally no flavoring is added.

Kava is consumed in various ways throughout the Pacific Ocean cultures of Polynesia, Vanuatu, Melanesia and some parts of Micronesia and Australia. Traditionally, kava is prepared by mashing the root, steeping in water or coconut milk and then straining the infusion to remove the remaining fibers.

Why must Kava be mixed into cold beverages? 2016-12-07T09:24:30+00:00

Once Kava hits liquid, it immediately starts losing its potency. Liquid above certain temperatures break down the active ingredients that give Kava its calming effects faster than in colder liquids.

Some people say hot liquid actually makes Kava more potent. You are welcome to experiment with Kava however you wish. Please share any feedback with us.

Is Kava safe? 2016-10-26T13:14:56+00:00

Kava is safe if used properly. Like with any substance, you should not use more than recommended. Please consult your doctor if you have any concerns or pre-existing medical conditions.

We do not condone the consumption of kava if you are under the age of 18 or pregnant. 

It came to light in the 90’s that Kava may cause liver damage. However, since it was originally brought up, there has been no definitive proof that Kava causes liver damage, and has since been disproven.

What is the difference between the Shakes and the Blends? 2017-02-13T10:42:16+00:00

The Kava Shakes will produce a drink of a thicker consistency than the Kava Blends. The Shake mixes are the perfect addition to a smoothie or a shake!

I tried Kava and did not feel anything. Why might this happen? 2016-10-26T13:14:56+00:00

You may be experiencing what the Kava community refers to as “Reverse Tolerance”. The Theory of Reverse Tolerance is the idea that someone may need a certain level build-up of kavalactones before they begin feeling the effects of Kava. Kavalactones are the compounds Kava is made up of that give it its calming effects. This theory applies to the principle that “the more you have, the less you need”.

If you tried Kava for the first time and did not feel anything, keep trying! It may take a few weeks to start feeling Kava’s effects. If after about a month you do not feel anything, let us know and we will see if there is anything we can do to help.

Can I capsulate the Kava Instant Drink Mixes? 2016-12-07T09:26:58+00:00

Yes! As long as it is safe, we encourage you to use our Kava in the most convenient and enjoyable way possible.

What are Cold-Pressed Oils? 2016-10-26T13:14:56+00:00

Cold-Pressed oils are the best oils. Cold-pressing oils involves forcing the oil out of the seeds or nuts by crushing and grinding them at LOW temperatures. The chemical structure of the oils are preserved by pressing the seeds and nuts at lower temperatures. When you add more heat to the pressing process, you are degrading the beneficial value of the oils.

Nangai Oil typically gels at cooler temperatures. It is best to store Nangai Oil at temperatures above 75℉.
