    Unbelievably strong, to my system at least. Made me very nauseous drinking it, and for hours afterwards. But super strong in a good way too. That being said, I had just drank two 1oz (of kava powder) shells of Loa Waka over the course of 2 hours, so I already had some in my system. Be careful with this. If you mix strong shells like I do, make your shells of Borogu weaker, you might thank me later. Best bang for your buck!

    By far my favorite kava yet. Taste good and very well balanced!

  3. cwfletcher1986 (verified owner)

    I’m not gonna lie, I was a little disappointed. Not majorly so but a little. It’s just not potent. There isn’t much of a tingle on the tongue and the effects are kind of weak unless I use a lot. If it cost 10 bucks less it wouldn’t be a problem but I have to use so much that I’d rather buy other more potent kavas and get more bang for my buck. Maybe it’s just the way this strain works on me.

  4. Jonathan Gerhards

    You can’t go wrong with Borogu. It’s my go to kava for sleep and anxiety relief. It’s always been consistent and I’ve never been disappointed with the effects.

  5. Wyett Crockett

    Ordered this stuff a few weeks back.
    I tried it a few times using anywhere from 6-8 tbsp.
    Definitely get the effects but I always got sick after and that nausea masked the good feelings.
    Stopped using it for a few weeks and decided to try again tonight.
    Finally figured out the secret for me! You have to pace your shells out. Really wait 20-30 min to see how your feeling.
    Before I would just chug it all within 30 min.
    Tonight I drank 8 tbsp worth it over 2 hrs and it really works. I fee very chill and relaxed and I have a tingling in my legs just feeling really heavy and relaxed.
    Give this stuff a try but maybe pace yourself so you don’t get dizzy. Bula!
    Very balanced effects in my opinion.

    Very balanced and alleviates pain as well as helps me relax without knocking me out. Kalm is the best of the best

  7. johnpaula66 (verified owner)

    Probably my favourite kava, very fresh and just the right amount of peppery tones. Begins very heady then balances out and moves to the body. Would buy again. So fresh and delicious!

    Great Kava

  9. cmluke (verified owner)

    I simmered in water along with milk for about 15 mins and added chocolate syrup for flavor.

    I let cool and then strained. The effects were noticeable after the first shell. After a few shells, I am left with a calm buzzing sensation throughout my limbs and shoulders… like a pulsation of peace infiltrating my cells. In my head, my muscles are relaxes and my neck simply feels like it is suspending my head with ease. My mood is alert and and coordination still sober like… though I am more open and in a more social mood. I could honestly either talk with people in an open way or take a nap… but it would be my choice. I would like to replace alcohol with Kava and have even it found to reduce the milder alcohol withdrawal symptoms from a few nights in a row partying too hard. Yet another plant medicine I can add to my medicine bank. It seems to be very dependent on preparation. Good luck and thank you Kalm with Kava for a superior product. I will be ordering more soon.

    I’ve tried a few different strains of Vanuatu, and this one is clearly the best tasting, feeling, and looking. I’ve tried Dua na Bilo multiple times, and it always leaves me with a drunk kind of feeling. This gives me plain euphoria and a happy mind. My favorite kava thus far!

  11. Charleswsen

    I ordered this kava a few months ago and really loved it. Borogu gave me just the right levels of relaxation to drink during the day and a night. I love drinking this kava instead of drinking alcohol because I get a little euphoria and relaxation. The price is also great!

  12. Destry

    Really enjoyed this kava. I don’t have alot of experience with the different strains but I really enjoy the way I am able to relax and enjoyed this one alot.

  13. Vis

    Thank you Kalm for this incredible Kava. Great packaging and directions. Great grind and a potent freshness. Great price! I looked into Kava to quit drinking alcohol and for anxiety relief and have to say this specific root has worked the best hands down. I have no complaints and will buy again!

  14. kwiltse

    Truly an amazing root. Wish I had discovered it years ago. Monday I had a rip roaring migraine on the scale of 9.5. I was writhing and vomiting.( I suffer from chronic migraines. A daily struggle.) I received my starter variety pack that afternoon and in a blind fog took the risk to see if drinking a cup of Borogu would help. Voila! 10 minutes later my headache was gone! I’m floored. Amazed. So easy. In addition the relaxation was wonderful. And I had the best nights sleep since I was a kid. And woke clear headed. Oh the melomelo is wonderful too! Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, KwK. You’ve won me over. Just ordered some micronized Borongoru:)

  15. Jordan K Ownby (verified owner)

    They have recently change the grind of this borogu to a fine grind rather than medium, and I’d have to admit I like the change. I prefer medium grind kavas better in general just because I’m picky about not having any unnecessary root material coming through the strainer, but that’s not the case with the Borogu (especially in their basic muslin strainer). Also, you can get away with using less root for the same results because the fine grind makes for more efficient extraction of kavalactones. For what it’s worth, Borogu still has my stamp of approval and is still my favorite variety here, maybe even more so now.

  16. tjndlacomis1992 (verified owner)

    The borogu is the first kava I ever took a chance on, and bought a pound.
    I wasn’t disappointed. I was taking meds for years to sleep, and looking for a more natural alternative.
    I couldn’t be happier.
    I never expected such a great calm feeling, but this kava delivers.
    Thank you guys at Kalm, I tried 1 other vendor and I’ll never do that again!
    You have a lifelong customer here.

  17. Jordan Ownby (verified owner)

    Borogu is definitely my favorite variety. It’s less expensive than most other varieties but just as strong in my opinion. Also, the fresh, piney taste is much more desirable than some of the other kavas.

    P.S. These guys have great customer service.

  18. Sam N. (verified owner)

    Treat yourself don’t cheat yourself with this five star root. Don’t let the price fool you, it’s top quality kava. I’d like to thank the good people at Kalm for providing such a top notch quality product for an affordable price.

  19. Salvatore Uras (verified owner)

    Due to harsh personal events, I’ve ben unwell and unable to sleep properly for about an year now.
    This kava allows me again to consistently enjoy a good, refreshing sleep with dreams: not a “chemical” sleep, but my sleep. Thank you very much!

  20. Andrea Fox

    This is good Kava, very relaxing. I do not use this as my regular Kava. Rather, I use it as a sleep aid when I want to have a little natural help falling asleep. Very heavy body feel, makes my eyelids heavy too!

  21. Ben

    This is potent! It easily outdid the Loa Waka for me. Quite the head rush. My body is relaxed as well, knock out variety here! Again, very potent. Be careful. I’m on the verge.

  22. Daniel (verified owner)

    Usually I’m a tongan, or Fijian kava man, but this one is amazing. After 2 shells, I got that tingling all up my neck, and through my head, great sense of euphoria, and we’ll being. I will forever be a loyal customer to kwk.

  23. Jon R. (verified owner)

    I left a review for Vula waka but Borogu I had the best experience with. Very different than most of the other kavas on the market. A lot of the members on Kavaforums mentioned this to be heady, I experienced the total opposite. I have been struggling with insomnia since being unemployed. This here is the remedy for insomnia. This comes on heavy right after the 2nd shell. Nice light peppery aftertaste, nothing overpowering. I would have to say this strain differs from the others as its effects are mainly body some slight headiness but definitely a heavier kava, I have tried kavas that leave me antsy and act more like a stimulant after the initial relaxation not really helping with sleep. This is clean and sedating. Other kavas made me more talkative n social but borogu left me not really wanting to say much which isn’t a bad thing. It left me with some of the best sleep I have had in a while. After 6 shells or so and a big meal to chase it with, it left my whole body, arms, legs paralyzed to the bed. I will keep this in my rotation. Recommend for quality sleep.

  24. Ashley (verified owner)

    I’ve tried four types of kava and all from this vendor. While they’re all wonderful, borogu is so far my favorite. I know it’s supposed to be a good afternoon kava but it’s actually hit me the hardest, and that’s including the loa waka (but I’ll be revisiting that soon!). Nice relaxing kava and the best I’ve slept in years!

  25. Alex (verified owner)

    Probably my favorite kava option from Kalm. Relaxing, euphoric, and not a bad flavor (although I love the taste of kava). I definitely would recommend to anyone. And not a bad price!

  26. TidyMinion (verified owner)

    Reliable vendor always good kava. This Borogu is one of my favorites and I regularly buy this. Great type of kava if just starting out and great for social settings as it’s not sleep inducing. Can’t go wrong with Kalm!
