Kava is a plant and the root of the plant gets dried and pounded to make a powder. That powder is added to a strainer bag and squeezed. The beverage prepared in water and is very earthy/peppert and numbs yo mouth.

People in the south pacific drink it as their social beverage of choice and have been consuming it for over a thousand years.

I personally stopped drinking alcohol because I prefer kava.


If interested I know so much more

It is an interesting one...

Kind of feels like 2-3 beers plus some weed.

But you can drink as much as you want with little to no hangover.

how fucked up will i get if i buy a half pound
A half pound should last like 6+ heavy sessions. 1 cup of the stuff in 2 liters of water will make a seriously potent drank.


Some more stuff for anyone wanting to try.

You should drink about 4-6 oz. every 10-20 min. the effect build over time and too much at once can cause nausea.

Kava has different cultivars and each cultivars carries different effects. It can be classed into heady and heavy kavas.

Heavy kava will couch lock you and make your muscles melt.

Heady is almost entirely a mental effect.

Yes I have a good Polynesian community around me, to be honest it's more of just a social thing but obviously when the time comes to be more traditional it has its place.

Tastes like mud though, eventually you just ignore it

Damn I wish I had a local kava community. I would love to experience drinking it in a traditional setting.
