it takes a lot of kava to get off.... im not sure which ones are more potent. ive had good experences with taking the pills and emptying theminto 2cups hot water with honey... man at least 15 or so to get a good taste. soup bowls work well, add honey to taste. youre mouth will start going numb as you drink it, a rather cool sensation if you ask me. avoid caffiene for several days before you try it (tough i know) because their may be a reaction in some people, headaches mostly. its a beautiful plant! most people i know take it to relax alone, but it has wonderful social effects in large doses, you and your kava partner will have a grand ole time.

peace & kavelectones!

I'm by no means an expert but I've heard you should go for Waka grade.

I'm not an expert, but I've been on the Kava wave many a time. I posted this a while ago. I hope it helps:

As usual, I was looking for a new "head" and I came upon KavaKava. Now maybe you're saying, bullshit, I went to WalMart and bought Kava and I ate the whole bottle and it didn't do crap to me. I gotta agree with you, the shit that WalMart sells wouldn't give my grandmother a buzz. However, there is pure Kava extract out there that is fuckin' unbelievable. Each capsule contains 700mg of pure Vanuatu Kave extract standardized to contain a minimum of 84% kavalactones (that's the good shit) I have ventured into "Deep kava territory" and it was so unbelievable that I ordered alot more. CAUTION: Make sure the kava you buy is processed from the roots of the plants only. Some companies, in order to increase profit use the leaves and bark of the kava plants. Extracts made with those "by products" can cause serious liver problems.
The deepest kava experiences will be realized in a ritual environment which is dark, quiet and comfortable. Bright lights, noise and distractions will tremendously diminish the effect of even the best kava, so do as the Pacific Islanders do and enjoy your kava with a small group of close friends in a relaxed setting. If you choose to enjoy music, keep it mellow and soft.
At high doses kava produces profound muscular relaxation, so be careful, your legs will feel amazingly loose and walking can be awkward.
I hope this will inspire you to go out there and try kava, it's great!!

I've had good quality waka grade kava maybe 4 times or so and I don't know why but it's never done much to me. Maybe I just didn't have enough or the effects were too subtle. Never tried the 700 mg pure kava you're talking about though, but still I should have got something from what I had, i guess it was the amount.

I have a question too. How many of those caps are you supposed to take? For example, the 700mg of 84% lactones, how many caps of that is a good buzz and how many would be a heavy buzz? Does anyone know a good source or are we not supposed to mention suppliers?

If I did Kava often I'd probably combine it with pot or something since it's so subtle.

oh yeah, like beatle said, make sure its just root and not any other plant material, that will seriously diminish the effects.

The most I have ever done was (4) 700 mg pure Vanuatu Kava extract (84% kavalactones) and that was awsome, especially during sex. Deep Kava territory is probably 6 caps.
Proper environment is critical.
I gotta repeat this MAKE SURE THAT IT WAS MADE FROM THE ROOTS OF THE PLANTS ONLY!!!!
Don't wanna die now, do we?

I made tea from 10 grams of kava i let it steep for 15 min and then strained it. My toung was numb then my forhead and the rest of my body followed. Lims were heavyer i layed down and watched a movie. About a 1/2 hour latter i got glass of wine and finished that off.
My body went from numb/heavy to almost trantlized. As i sit there watching TV i fell asleep. woke up like 40 minuits later feeling refreshed. But still intoxicated. At this time it was 10 o'clock and i went to bed. I sleeped very sound till next morning.
