Borogu Vanuatu Kava Root

Rated 4.91 out of 5 based on 11 customer ratings
(11 customer reviews)


Borogu – A great kava at a great price.

This is the most popular and a staple variety in Vanuatu served at most Kava Bars. The grind makes it easy to prepare in any strainer and kneading is a breeze.

Effects: Balanced

This is considered a good afternoon kava. It is still a balanced kava that starts out a little heady but tiring effects are more pronounced with higher doses and tend to set in a few hours after consuming.

    The borogu is the first kava I ever took a chance on, and bought a pound.
    I wasn’t disappointed. I was taking xanax 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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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. Iā€™m on the verge.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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!
