(21 customer reviews)


This is an exceptional quality kava coming out of Fiji. Most Fiji kavas are lower in Kavalactone content due to the fact Fijians enjoying drinking their kava all throughout the day. This one is not the case. Coming in at 12% KL content and a chemotype of 463251, we use only Waka (100% lateral roots) for this kava powder. Shipped to us straight from the farm on Taveuni, enjoy this example of a great, fresh, Strong Fiji Kava.

Effects: Balanced / Heady

This is the perfect example of a great balanced kava. It is the strongest kava variety we carry and very popular all around effects. In smaller servings it is somewhat heady and good for daytime use. In larger serving sizes it can become heavier, melting away the stresses of the day.

    I received this kava as a gift from a friend and didn’t know what to expect. I had tried many kavas over the years but somehow have never managed to try any from Fiji. I made a few shells and took them and when the effects hit me… Wow! I suffer from Anxiety and this kava just made me feel like I was melting away along with my anxiety. I felt like I was on a cloud and I may just have a favorite Kava… (Shhhh don’t tell my vanuatu go to) 5 stars amazing!

    My friend brought some over last week and it was my 1st time ever trying kava! It made me feel warm and fuzzy and overall “I’m a better mood” definitely relaxed and more calm! Can’t wait to get some of my own!!

    I love this Kava. It is very strong but still tastes great! Lots of euphoric headiness. I don’t have to use as much powder to my water ratio as I do with other varieties so it saves me money, which is a bonus! I am definitely recommending to all my friends!

    I have to agree with all the other reviews, this is by far the best Kava I’ve had both in strength and it’s qualities. The finer grind, IMHO, helps it to release more of the active ingredients, making your grog stronger. It also works well in the Aluball, I hope it’s OK to mention that here. And the results speak for themselves. I do however not recommend the fast prep method. Due to the fine grind, even a few hits in the blender and it’s so finely puree’d that the muslin bag gets clogged and you end up having to microstrain via a super fine mesh. You are better off hand kneading per instructions or using the above mentioned Aluball. The former takes longer but I feel more “at one” with the tradition and always use proper shells to drink the grog when I do this. I am not from the region this wonderful Kava comes from but I feel connected to the people who’ve come before me after drinking it if prepared traditionally.

    I like to do 2-2.5 tablespoons to about two shells worth of water (approx 2/3 cup – 1 cup per “shell” if your shells are larger), sometimes going to 3 depending on how much kneading I do. I find that anything over 3 at this concentration will get you intensely happy and “krunked” as people like to say. It also mixes 2/3 Loa Waka with 1/3 Borongoru well for a very nice heady buzz mixed with a good overall lighter body buzz.

    Overall, like everyone above has said, this stuff is pure and complete heady super buzz kava that will not let you down. It’s strong enough you will find that your entire attitude will shift once you start feeling the effects. And for me it lasts anywhere from 2-4 hours, with that initial buzz kicking in and then you just ride it.

    I am not a fan of the taste of any Kava, I know some aquire a taste, to me it looks like chocolate drink and tastes less then savory. But Loa Waka’s taste is not too bad or bitter, and a pineapple or tart fruit chaser and the taste vanishes leaving your mouth happy and then your body and mind kind of escape. I’ve likened the effect of this particular strain to having a beer or glass of wine and then slipping outside of the alcohol buzz “vibe” into someplace special.

    I do recommend if you can handle it, swirling it around in your mouth for a minute to really take in the numbness that Kava brings before swallowing. And it also mixes very well with coconut water or coconut milk for a more tropical taste. Note that the milk is thick and should be added after you’ve made your grog concentrate.

    If you’ve never tried Kava, or have tried others and not really felt like you got what you came for, this will not disappoint. Do yourself a favor and get the larger bag, it will go fast as you enjoy it regularly.

    Due to its strength, I do not recommend this one for a day Kava, especially if you go past say 3-5 tablespoons well kneaded. It will kick your butt and leave you a bit past driving or similar. It’s powerful effects are also great in weaker doses, 1 tablespoon to around 1cup of water well kneaded is enough to take the edge off of your day, give you a heady buzz and keep your happy flowing without being too “krunk” to function.

    The best part is, it’s strong enough to party, heady enough to clear your mind and bring on the happy vibes, and seems to knead well bringing out the active ingredients without spending 20 minutes at the bag. If you use warmer water and knead, then let it cool and stir before pouring a shell, its a delightful grog.

    This is my goto now and when I introduce others to Kava and the experience, they always tell me they are surprised at how much of a kava effect they get. And don’t forget, mix it with some body buzz strains, its a good overall feeling with a nice heady happy vibe on top of a calm body buzz. Put on some music or grab your drums or guitar and just ride it, talk with friends, listen to music, it doens’t matter. This stuff is the Kava that brings it all into focus and lets the world slip away.

    Recommended hands down as a starter and for Kava fans who are experienced.

    Big fan of this Kava – been drinking Kava for 3 years and this is hands down my favorite Kava. Doesn’t take more than 1 or 2 shells to put you in a great place.

    I’ve tried a few Kavas and this one is by far the most impressive. I agree with the more verbose descriptors above, but wanted to chime in that this is an excellent strong Kava. Very heady, relaxing and enjoyable. My new favorite!

    This is my favorite kava so far. It is very strong and really feels great. Loa Waka helps me to stay calm and focused. Kalm with Kava is a really great vendor. They ship quickly and only sell noble kava which is the only kava you should buy. Do you research and stay away from tudei kava. Tudei is crap and can make you sick. I like to mix my kava with chocolate almond milk because it helps the kava to taste a little bit better and I think it increases the effects. Sometimes it can take time to feel the effects of kava like most supplements can take time to really get into your system. I didn’t have that issue, but I know that some people do. It is totally worth it. Kava is amazing! Also, this is probably not the best kava to take right before bed. It is great a few hours before bed though or during the day in small amounts.

    My mind is blown by this kava, and this business. I got my kava within 4 days (with a holiday). As soon as I got home from work I got to work kneading this stuff. I used about 5 tbls of kava w/ 3 cups water, 1 cup whole milk. I gotta say, if this is what kava is supposed to feel like, I’m not sure the other stuff I’ve chugged is even kava! Mind and body completely in a different realm. But 100% euphoric. I think Fiji Loa Waka will be my go-to-kava for some time now. Thanks dudes, you made my evening!

    I just received my 2nd order of this Fijian Waka Loa Kava. i am very impressed with this Kava. It is strong and help you relax quickly. The grind is excellent! I have ordered Kava from other online vendors and was not happy, i ordered this two times now and know I will be back for a 3rd order!

    This one is definitely on the stronger side, and one you’ll feel pretty quickly. For me it gives a very pleasant mix of heady and heavy effects, good for later in the afternoon when I want to relax but don’t want to immediately fall asleep. Not a bad taste, and seems to settle well on the stomach. This will be a re-order for me.

    This waka is strong.
    This waka is well rounded.
    This root will be on your top shelf.

    The potent headiness is complimented by a light dose of sedation that builds with each shell consumed. This root has yet to cause an inkling of nausea, even when I pushed my session further than I normally do. I think the magic is in its kavalactone profile, coupled with the potency of using lateral roots only.

    A solid single shell of this root really makes the last hour of work quite pleasant. Anything beyond that, you’ll wish you could kick off your shoes and throw your feet up on the work desk.

    It’s been quite a while that a kava has made six hours of sleep feel like eight. I can’t tell you the last time that i woke up refreshed in the morning.

    You like headiness? It’s got that.
    You like stress relief? No problem.
    Pain relief with quality sleep. Done.

    Kalm! Great job guys. I hope you can keep this in stock. I almost didn’t want to leave this review for fear you’ll run out, but this kava has so many shining examples of its capabilities that I hope many people try it.

    In my opinion, this is one of the best all-around kavas that’s currently available. By year’s end, it very well may be my favorite kava of the year.
    It’s a waka, which translates to higher overall kavalactone percentage and for a hard-head like myself, that’s pretty important. I like a kava that’s undeniably effective, in full, at my usual dosage…and this one hasn’t let me down yet. Many people comment on the headiness of this kava, which it indeed is, but in my experience, it’s much more than that. While a pronounced headiness can easily be attained, I also notice a blatant and enjoyable sedation, pain relief and shift in perception. This one can take you pretty deep into kava-lala-land.

    The scent is fairly mild, with only a fraction of that sharp Vanuatu peppery scent. The flavor is fairly bitter but not as completely repugnant as some can be. Effects kick in quickly and if you were keeping it mild, I’m sure just one good shell or two could cruise you through the night. The farther you take it, the more the heaviness takes hold. The other day, this stuff completely removed a nagging neck strain I had and gave me a bit of a gleeful wobbliness. When the headiness and heaviness combine into complete ro0tedness, I begin to notice that stretching feels wonderful, my breathing is calm and enjoyable, eye’s are loose and time starts slowing down. If you close your eyes too long at this point, you’ll accidentally fall asleep.

    Anyway, glad to have this one around, another good find from @Kalm with Kava.

    This is a wonderfully heady kava. Too much and you will be krunked, unless that is your goal. This is by far the best heady kava I have had to date.

    This is easily the best kava I’ve ever had. I use far less than I normally would, and it gives a great mix of heady/heavy effects. Excellent for anxious individuals looking for a way to calm their nerves down.
