Kava or Kava-Kava
Kava Kava is now available in SW Florida and Fort Myers at Kapua Kava Bar located next to Cirrus Smoke Shop. (Piper methysticum) (Piper: Latin for “pepper”, methysticum: Latinized Greek for “intoxicating”) is a crop of the western Pacific. The name kava (-kava) is from Tongan and Marquesan; other names for kava Include Hawaii, (Samoa), Yaqona (Fiji), Sakau (Pohnpei), and Malok or Malogu (parts of Vanuatu). The roots of the plant are used to produce a drink with sedative and anesthetic properties. Kava is consumed throughout the Pacific Ocean cultures of Polynesia, including Hawaii, Vanuatu, Melanesia and some parts of Micronesia. (See canoe plants.) Kava is sedating and is primarily consumed to relax without disrupting mental clarity. Its active ingredients are called kavalactones. A Cochrane Collaboration systematic review of its evidence concluded it was likely to be more effective than placebo at treating short-term social anxiety.
The effects of a kava drink vary widely with the particular selection of kava plant(s) and amount. A potent drink results in a faster onset with a lack of stimulation; the user’s eyes become more sensitive, the person soon becomes somnolent and then has deep, dreamless sleep within 30 minutes. Sleep is often restful and pronounced periods of sleepiness correlate to the amount and potency of kava consumed. Kava drinkers are often perceived as having lazy days after consumption of kava the night before, which can be expected as many active kavalactones have half-lives of approximately 9 hours.
Our most popular strain of Kava is Fiji Waka, a five year old plant made from the lateral roots and is sold in 30 gram packages. Kava Kava is available in both micro ground and capsule form.
