How many grams of kava-kava Root powder

How many grams of Kava-Kava root powder should SWIM mix with a Soda for a great Kava experience. SWIM is about 200 lbs. Thanks.

Re: How many grams of Root powder

Not sure about grams, but it will probably vary between 1 and 2 tablespoons. Kava varies a lot-- my cat goes by what is on the packet.

Re: How many grams of kava-kava Root powder

SWIM should not mix any kava root powder with soda unless it is the instant kava that some vendors sell. Use the strainer bag, 1 tablespoon per half cup of water.

Re: How many grams of kava-kava Root powder

Mixing Kava with soda doesn't seem like the best idea, though if swiy has tried it and enjoys the taste he can use whatever floats his boat.

Check out the Kava Preparation thread for more information on how to prepare Kava. Dose isn't especially finicky with Kava and it varies from strain to strain, not to mention the level of effects desired.

I suggest that swiy starts with a reasonably sized dose (enquirewithin's suggestion is good) and then adjust it as necessary once he figures out what works for him.

Re: How many grams of kava-kava Root powder

Swim's kava must be weak then, swim mixes 8 tablespoons with a liter of water and drink this in an hour. This is a good dose.

That would suggest that swiy's kava is weaker, as he has to use a higher dose. 2-3 tablespoons works for swim for a single dose, with the level of efficacy dependent on the extent of preparation (letting it sit / emulsify for longer helps make it stronger). Occasionally, sublingual ingestion of a tablespoon with subsequent supplement of milk after kava is moist and dissipated in saliva will work well for quick onset and instantaneous yet mild anxiolytic relief (particularly with managing side effects of adderall, including incidence of short-term anxiety and accentuation of obsessive compulsive tendencies on occasion).

The specific variety of kava used, as well as its relative potency, determines the effective dose, not to mention personal physiology and psychology. Trial and error assessments of dose evaluated through self-perception of subjective effects should be enough to gauge an efficient dosage. Don't assume the kava you have is the same as what other people consume, or that it will be the same potency as the previous time, even if using the same vendor / strain.

My cat doesn't have any tolerance for kava, but 4 tablespoons of the kava root powder has made him quite unwell! He did blend it with milk rather than with just plain water.

Kava is legal so sources are easy to find with Google. There are different types of kava, such as kona kava.
