What we walked into were wooden community tables where everyone was drinking a murky liquid.  One of those shells of murky liquid was passed onto him, he drank the entire shell down in a single gulp, and waited.

After two or three more shells he noticed quite a change in his state of being.  He first noticed that his mind was at ease as were his muscles.  He said it was a little like “being lightly drunk without the loss of mental cognition that accompanies excessive alcohol use.”

He was immediately hooked and decided to bring that same vibe to his hometown or Portland, OR.  As Judd says; “Kava makes for a safe alternative to alcohol and other intoxicants, and I figured a Pacific Northwest kava bar would be a great place to come socialize or use something that has been used medicinally to treat pain, insomnia, and anxiety for thousands of years.”

He then spent the next couple of years searching for the world’s best Kava, as well as a location for his Kava Bar, Bula Kava House was born, and began serving Kava Kava to the good people of Portland, Oregon in 20111.  Bula Kava House crafts only traditionally-prepared Kava from the South Pacific, and has been going strong from the very beginning.
