A great afternoon/early evening kava as the kavalactones DHM and Methysticin are in low quantities making it less sedative initially than some other types of kava root but eventually leading to a great nights rest. New to Kava? See our Easy Kava Preparation

    I make 2 strong brews and I’m set for the night. Always remember to mix it with something that has a high fat content. (E.X. Whole milk, coconut milk or. Almond milk. The fat binds to the Kava. So you can be assured to get the most out of your brew. And make sure you use warm to cold water. This company is definitely doing it right, by selling the highest quality that nature has to offer.

    I’ve always found this kava to be a perfectly balanced mix of heady and heavy effects. Calming the mind, and relaxing the body without being overly sedating. Great variety and maybe my favorite (close with Loa Waka).
    * this is a great kava and the only reason I hesitate to give it 5 stars, and went with 4, is because I always like to leave room for those “knock your socks off” varieties that truly warrant 5 stars. Nonetheless, this IS an excellent kava.

    I’ve been drinking the micronized form of this at work, a glass or two throughout the day, and it’s quite relaxing (in a good way!). I have a hyper active brain with almost no “chill” brain waves, so when i drink the necessary work day coffee my anxiety goes off the chart. Mixing kava and coffee I’ve found puts me in a good place, and it masks the taste of kava (although the micronized flavor is mild). Additionally, this takes the edge off where I’m effective in getting things done and am better at conversation. I don’t even “feel it” either, the proof is simply in the pudding; you feel better. If anything, the biggest sign of the kava affect is giggles, as walking through the supermarket certain funny things simply escalated to hysterical for me. I’m going to check out other varieties, and provided these positive effects are repeatable, add it to my routine.

    A great mellow kava for day grogging, taking the edge off without getting too heady, and mixes well at 1/3 Borongoru to 2/3 Loa Waka for a more potent full body experience.

    This Kava has a courser grind, so don’t be afraid to blip it in the blender once or twice in some warm water to break it up a bit, then knead away and when you are done, you have a good mild body calm that lasts quite a while with little to no strong heady feeling. Which is why it makes a great day grog. Try mixing in a little fresh pineapple juice and coconut milk to complete the experience.

    This is my second goto, after the heavier Loa Waka, for myself and for new Kava friends. And I found that if you put a batch in the fridge and let it sit overnight, then strain through the muslin bag and knead it, you will pull lots of good stuff out of it for a body calm that can be used before bed to sleep, or to take the edge off your day.

    To me, this is sort of like the sip of beer version of Kava, nothing strong, just a perfect edge release and add a few more shells for a stronger relaxing feeling.

    Over the 20+ years suffering from really bad anxiety and depression I must have tried over 50 different prescription medication which none of them really worked, all they did was add other mind numbing side effects which leave you feeling empty and more anxious. Got the kava this morning, thanks Mike and it only took about 8 days to the United Kingdom, I am one happy kid. The only problem is I should have left trying it tonight before bedtime, lol, wowwww, thats all I can say, WOWWW, In all these years I have yet to come across any prescription medication that done anything at all with the anxiety or even just a relaxing effect. UNTIL NOW, lol, after being tortured best part of my life just after one serving of kava it has just gave me a totally different outlook on life, and for once a positive one. Keep up with the good work Mike, you have just made one person so happy for once just by giving my brain a chance to relax, thanks once again.

    Received this as a small sample in a care package from a friend and all I can say is wow. I generally prefer heavy kava and have my sessions in the evening time and this one really hits the spot. So relaxing and quite potent. Just the thing I need after a long day. Great evening chemotype, pretty high KL %, and since its TK certified you know you are getting quality noble roots.

    This is definitely one of my favorite kavas. I’ve tried kava from numerous other vendors, and Kalm With Kava has some of the highest quality kava that I’ve ever had. The effects of the Borongoru kava last for hours. The initial euphoria is very pleasant, with NO traces of nausea, and eventually fades to a state of relaxation where you can sit and watch TV for hours, get up and clean the house, or go to bed! This is my favorite all around kava. My neighbors, my friends and my wife all have enjoyed trying the Borongoru. The only problem is that now I need to order more because it goes so fast!!!

    This was one of the first kava strains I have ever tried and probably the only company I will buy from until I am able to move to Hawaii and grow my own. I was quite surprised when I consumed my first bowl! I come from a background of taking adaptogenic herbs so I thought I would be ready for the impressive effects I read about, but I wasn’t. This stuff blew my mind literally! Before trying Kava I simply couldn’t imagine the unmatched and incredibly impressive relaxation unique to this plant ONLY and before trying this brand I had no idea how good it could be! For me, the Borongoru strain eliminates any stress or mental chatter and brings me into the moment so I can enjoy a solid Kava buzz while gardening, hiking or going out with friends (since I don’t drink alcohol). I get a really nice, balanced body buzz with a bit of a heady & uplifting energy…not too heavy but not as heady as the Pouni Ono strain (that is one of my favorite for social gatherings). In short, Kava is a very powerful and fun plant-medicine to ingest. When I recommend Kava to my friends I always suggest this company and always have some for them to try so they know how different and incomparable it is to anything else in the world. I highly recommend this product to anyone! Until you have a personal first-hand experience with kava you simply don’t know how amazing it truly is! I have never been disappointed with this company.

    This stuff is amazing. I’m relativley new to Kava. I’ve tried quite a bit of root and tinctures from several herbal, health-food, and head-shop stores over the past year or so. But this is in an entirely different category. Keep up the good work. Next stop is Fiji Loa Waka.
