Our Vanuatu kava contain peak kavalactone content because our kava is made from mature roots that are harvested after a minimum of 5 years or growth. The older the kava plant is the bigger its roots will grow and the more stable and potent the kavalactone content is.  

Kava root is classified into 2 categories known as the “Crown Root” or “Chips” and the Lateral Root. Crown Roots/Chips are the large diameter pieces that look like big wooden poker chips. The measurement of the diameter of these pieces can range from 1.5 inches to 5 inches in diameter which is normal for fully mature kava root. Most kava plants consist of approximately 80% crown root upon harvesting. The best kava that turns white or lighter color when it dries.

Lateral Roots look more like a typical root of a plant or tree. A mature kava plant is approximately 20% roots. Kava lateral roots have the highest content of kavalactones in the kava plant. After the kava roots are harvested they are chopped up with a machete by hand into more manageable pieces and dried as seen below.
