This Hawaiian grown ISA Kava was originally cultivated in Papua New Guinea. With a Kavalactone lineup of 2-5-6, it’s a non-noble variety. But, it has one key detail; its Flavokavain-B levels are nearly identical to the average noble varieties of Kava (and much less than Tudei Kava varieties). This Kava is often thought of as a “weekend Kava” because local Kava lovers found it too strong for every day use.
It’s well-known for helping with minor aches and pains, as well as a great “chill out” and “wind down” Kava that can combat bouts of insomnia. Just a couple shells of this Kava will be all you need, unlike many weaker noble varieties that require you to drink 4-6 shells in a sitting. Effects typically last longer than noble varieties of Kava as well, so we definitely recommend enjoying when you’ve got nothing on your calendar for the rest of the day. What this means for the Flavokavain-B conscious, is that you would actually be consuming less Flavokavain-B in a couple of shells of our Hawaiian ISA Kava than you would in several shells of an average noble variety.
For a bit of science; in a recent study called “Scientific and Legal Assistance for the Development of a quality and safety standard for kava production in the Pacific region,” lab testing has found that this variety of ISA Kava contains only 0.15%-0.2% Flavokavain-B. Again, this is only slightly (and we mean slightly) higher than typical noble and varieties of Kava. Our ISA Kava contains 0.15% Flavokavain-B. Enjoy with confidence!
