Kava Recipe for Powdered or Ground Kava

Kava Preparation: The first dose (3 tablespoons) was put into a bottle and shaken for about 3 minutes. I let it settle for 5 minutes and then shook it again.

The mixture was then poured into a strainer sitting in a bowl. The cloth was then massaged into the water trying to get as much into the water as possible.

Second dose was 4 tablespoons on top of the left over pulp from the first dose using the same process. The second dose was ingested an hour later. About half an hour later, the full effect, was realized. I wouldn't repeat this dose for myself. I think it was almost excessive to me.

6 hours after the second dose with 3 tablespoons mixed with the pulp from the previous 2 doses. Feeling great right now as it has kicked in. This time it took about 15 minutes to kick in. Very nice and mellowing.

Please be careful about use of Kava. I think this plant is not properly respected. Use safe.
