Recommended Kava Usage
The most common question we received is “This is my first time drinking kava, how much should I drink to feel it?” It important to know that everyone has different metabolisms and sensitivity levels to substances. Because of this, the amount needed can vary from person to person and there is no perfect answer. Here is what we recommend to get the maximum out of your kava experience:
In most cultures, Kava is usually consumed in the evenings. Drinking kava during the day can be unproductive if the effects are felt too strongly. For your first kava tea session, we recommend only consuming 2-3 four ounce shells of it. Space out each kava bowl about fifteen minutes so that you do not consume too much at once. If the kava effects are not felt fully it is best not to overdo it, especially your first time.
It is best to drink 2-3 shells of kava per sitting at least the first few times that you drink kava. If you have a high tolerance you can increase the amount per sitting, but do so moderately until you find the right dose. In our opinion, kava drinkers that follow the 2-3 shell spaced out by 15 minutes, usually appreciate it more. Once you have been drinking kava for at least a month on a regular basis and have started to feel the effects more fully you can drink more than 2 or 3 shells and you will find out quickly about the kava effects we call euphoria.
In summary, try kava several times before deciding if it is for you or not. Do not drink too much at once or too quickly and space out shells by 15 minutes. Remember, the kava effects will come to you. Before too long you will find out why so many people have been drinking kava for over 3000 years.
We recommend that you limit you intake of kava tea/juice to 32 oz. per day. A single shell serving of kava tea/juice can contain anywhere from 150 to 500 milgrams of kavalactones depending on the method of preparation (ratio of kava root to water and the volume of the kava per drink). Successful human clinical studies show that a daily dose between 150 and 300 milligrams of kavalactones is effective. The participants of the clinical study showed consumed anywhere from 500 to 2,500 milligrams of kavalactones per day for years at a time without any apparent ill effects.
Warning: Kava should not be consumed by persons under the age of 18, or if pregnant, nursing or taking prescription drugs.Do not exceed recommended dose (32 oz. of kava tea per day or 1500 miligrams of kavalactones). Excessive consumption may impair ability to drive or operate heavy equipment. Not recommended for consumption with alcoholic beverages. The chemical and toxicological properties of our Kava have not been fully investigated nor approved by any agency such as the FDA.
