And now back to our regularly scheduled program...

With all of the controversy about Kava alliances, farm sizes, Noble vrs. Tudei opinions, and Forums at full "insanity mode" I have made the choice to pull away from all the noise and get back to doing Kava reviews. I will still share Kava news on this website, including advances in Kava as a medicine, but I am going to steer clear of any and all conversations about controversies in the Kava "community."

Kava root is safe. That's the important thing. Whether you are drinking Noble Kava or Tudei Kava, you will be fine. Do different Kavas have different levels of flavokavain B? Yes. Are Kavas with slightly higher levels of flavokavain b dangerous? No. All Kavas have flavokavain B in it. The only risk is when Kava isn't properly processed or stored, if it is mixed with aerial parts of the plant, or if it is mixed with foreign substances.
We all have our favorite cultivars, but the reality is that Kava-growing countries buy Kava from smallholder farmers and "batches" of Kava are often mixed with different stuff. Some vendors get small batches from particular family farmers that have good consistency. But most Kava is aggregated and blended. That is simply how agriculture works in the developing world, and nothing is going to change that.

Bula! And peace in the Kava world...


And here are some of my favorite Kava products, click to purchase :) :
