Kava Beginner’s Guide – Where to Begin?

We’re so excited that Kava Kava (used safely for thousands of years) is becoming so popular! We also realize it can be difficult to know where to begin, so, I’m here to make it as easy as possible for you with the Kava Beginner’s Guide: I am Keith, writer for the blog and Kava Marketplace here at Kava.com. I dream of turning as many people onto this Plant of Peace as possible, believing in my heart that if everyone enjoyed Kava as much as me, my family, and loved ones do, that the world would be a much calmer and happier place.


Top Questions from First-Time Kava Users

01a. I want as simple an experience as possible.

This is often the sentiment we hear more than any other.  Making a Kava drink can take a blender, a kava extraction bag of some kind, some kneading and some patience.  What if you just want to dive right in without any of the fuzz, just to get an idea of what the Kava experience might hold for you?  If that’s the case, then you are in luck.  Several Kava vendors on our Kava Marketplace offer Instant Kava Mix.  This allows you to simply measure out a few teaspoons of Kava, which you can then blend into a liquid of your choice, preferably something milk-like such as milk itself, soy milk, almond milk, or some kind of coconut milk (or coconut water).  We have Instant Kava Mix from several high-quality retailers such as Bula Kava House, Kava Dot Com, and Kulea Kava Farm. Kona Kava Farm offers their version of this dietary supplement in several flavors, so choose your favorite Simply add 1-2 tablespoons of the mix to water, and enjoy a kava kava herbal supplement in minutes!

These are found in the INSTANT KAVA section of the Kava Marketplace.

01b. I only like taking capsules: 
We offer several products for this scenario. We have our 30% Kavalactone Capsules, Kava Root Only Capsules, as well as our very stimulating KavaLOVEtone Capsules. Both offer the benefits of kava kava without any mess, fuss or taste that many find is an “acquired” one. For those who want a very gentle product to see what Kava might be like, or for those who want to take Kava daily, our Kava Root Only Capsules would be a great choice for you.

These are found in the KAVA CAPSULES section of of the Kava Marketplace.

These are found in our INSTANT KAVA section of the Kava Marketplace.

Kavalactone products are found in the KAVALACTONE PASTE section.

02. I want the FULL traditional Kava experience: 
For this, you can choose from many of our products offered on the Kava Marketplace, but there are a couple that stand out. Your best choice would be the Powdered Kava Root from any of our high quality Kava vendors. Part of the joy of Kava, for us, is the extraction process. Not only does it connect you with the plant, extracting powdered root extracts all of the active components in Kava (over 25 of them!). Next in line would be a Full Spectrum Kavalactone Paste, as that retains all of the alkaloids that the powdered extraction provides, but in an easy-to-use Kava paste.

These are found in our KAVA KAVA ROOT section of the Kava Marketplace.

Kavalactone products are found in the KAVALACTONE PASTE section.

03. I want the STRONGEST/MOST EFFECTIVE Kava available: 
Ahh…you are in that group of folks who have a taste for adventure like I do. Well; you came to the right place! – For a full-on kava kava experience, there is nothing better than the Powdered Kava Root that we offer here from a wide range of manufacturers, mixed with the Kavalactone Paste or Kava tincture Plus from Kona Kava Farm. Or, if you’re simply interested in feeling the full benefits that kava has to offer, we now have their Full Spectrum Kava Extract that will knock your socks off. Please follow the instructions and use responsibly!

This can be found in the KAVALACTONE PASTE section of the Kava Marketplace.

Kava Tincture Plus can be found in the KAVA TINCTURES section of the Kava Marketplace.

04. I want my kava kava drinks to have more of an effect: 
Our strongest product is the 30% Kavalactone Capsules from Kona Kava Farm, the Kava Nakamal Capsules from the Eclectic Institute, the Kavalactone Paste, or the Full Spectrum Kava. Please use all of these products carefully and responsibly.

These are found in the KAVA CAPSULES section of of the Kava Marketplace.

These are found in the KAVALACTONE PASTE section of the Kava Marketplace.

05. Where can I find out more?
