Kava is gaining popularity fast, and as people find out about kava and kava bars, more and more kava products are springing up. One of the great things about kava products is that they can vary so greatly, so there’s a little something for everyone and every mood. There are heady kavas, balanced kavas, and heavy kavas. There are kava root powders, micronized kavas, “green” kavas, kava concentrates, and more. And between all of those products, the strength can vary a great deal. On the flip side, though, there are so many products out there that it can be hard to know which the strongest kavas actually are! If you’re looking for the strongest kava available right now, we can help.

Kava Strength and Kava as an Adaptogen

Kava is wonderful for so many things. Whether you turn to kava for help sleeping, to relax, to help ease social situations, or just because you love kava, the good news is that you don’t have to worry about diminishing effects. Kava is a natural adaptogen, which means that your body won’t get “used” to it, so meaning that you would need to turn to stronger dosages just to get the same effects you’re used to. Kava doesn’t work like that. Rather, kava can enhance the body’s natural response to physical and emotional stress, so you won’t need to drink more kava or turn to stronger kava to experience the same relaxing and calming results as time goes on. This means that you can find the kava strength that works best for you, and you won’t need to worry about upping it.

Finding the Strongest Kava

The joy of kava is that there are so many different varieties, strengths, and dosages. This— paired with the fact that kava is an adaptogen and it doesn’t have addictive properties— means that you have free rein to find the perfect kava for you. Remember, too, that there are different kava preparation methods you can follow to find the right kava strength for you. If you’re looking for the strongest kava out there, we’ve got you covered!

What is the Strongest Kava We Sell at Kalm With Kava Right Now?

  1. Melomelo: Melomelo is a moderately heavy kava that is really popular with locals and in kava bars (Nakamals) in Vanuatu. In smaller servings, it’s great for helping you relax and de-stress. It’s not too heady, but don’t be fooled by the relaxation effects, because this kava is anything but weak or tame. In stronger servings, it’s great for completely winding down, and after a couple of shells, you’ll notice the mind and body relaxation effects kicking in. Melomelo is a fantastic, strong kava for making you feel mellow and calm.
  2. Borogu: Vanuatu Borogu is a potent, balanced kava that can help you feel lighter and more relaxed, while also helping to physically relax you and relieve stress from your body. Borogu kava is great for drinking anytime, day or night. Its effects start out heady, meaning that it can help your mind to relax and to ease your thoughts, which is followed by heavier body relaxation and tiredness. The body relaxation will increase with stronger doses, and often sets in a few hours after you drink it.

There are so many kavas— and kava strengths— out there, and finding the perfect kava for you is one of the beautiful things about kava. We’re going to keep this post updated so if you’re a fan of the strongest kavas out there, this is a good place to check back to!
