Description

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.

Effects

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.

Preparation

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.

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.

Because of Kava King’s 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 milk, juice or water.

Kava Culture

Kava is used for medicinal, religious, political, cultural and social purposes throughout the South Pacific. These cultures have a great respect for the plant and place a high importance on it. This usually involves a ritualistic presentation of the bundled roots as a gift followed by drinking of the kava.

Correspondingly, the paraphernalia surrounding the traditional Kava ceremony are expertly crafted. Traditionally designed Kava (Tanoa) bowls are crafted from a single piece of wood and have several legs. Modern examples are often highly decorated, carved and inlayed with mother of pearl and shell.
