Anyone ever find live kava root?
    #3922423 - 03/15/05 08:54 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

It sure would be cool to grow my own. Anyone ever found the live stuff? Also, would you guys indulge in the dried root? Worth it? I have only had the extract from IAS and I loved it.

illegal...are you serious?

I've noticed some Online/mail order nurseries in OZ that sell both Piper mythisticum (plants) and the powdered root in various gades/strengths e.g Waka grade, PNG etc...

i've never been under the impression it was a rare plant...but i could be wrong. You should def be able to source it, if not through a nursery certainly through trades etc. i'd start with google?

I plant to get one at some stage too, but i'll need to build my hot house first :smile:

EDIT: to answer your question i have never used an extract? but i have experimented with powdered root (Waka grade)...definitely has an effect, i quite like it.

good luck.

its a canadian thing....i dont understand it. i *think* i read somthing about it was because of liver damage or somthing like that. i dotn know for sure. maybe it has something to do with pests or invasiveness (that i doubt!) i dont get it...and i dotn think its illegal to grow and such. jsut one of those wacky canuck laws with a whole bunch of grey areas i geuss...

mind me asking what country your in atma? i think its a pretty easy plant to get a hold of most places.

I am from way southern US, kada. I have googled the plants up and down and cannot seem to find anyone offering rhizomes. I dunno, but I just noticed IAS has a new 84% liquid gelcap kava now! I am ordering as we speak and will let everyone know how it is!

Piper Methysticum is actually a human cultivar of a wild kava plant. It is believed that humans bred the plant we now know as Piper Methysticum, kava. Through these actions kava now puts out sterile fruits. The only methods of propogation are cuttings and root segments. I guess when the plant has been cultivated in such a manner for over 3000 years it decides that seeds are no longer necessary for the continuation of the species.

I live in Hawaii and there used to be a kava farm down the road. I don't know if it's still there though. If I really wanted I could get a few plants, but I have too much stuff going on already, maybe some day though. I have only tried the fresh roots once. I made my own brew and man was it nasty. I chewed on the root and it numbed my mouth and throught. Nothing great though. Maybe if I get more roots and do a thurough brew I could get some effects...

Peace

i thought liver damage was usually only a problem with continued daily use.
-----

are you specifically searching for a propagable rhizome? good luck :smile:
this would have to be much harder to get than a dried root, root powder or the plant itself.

otherwise, you can easily source the plant or rhizome powder.

supposedly the liver damage was restricted to a few folks who were using an extract of whole plant (rather than just the rhizomes) & were also consuming booze pretty good as well...



but restricting an individual's access to personal health decisions is a standard legislator's response to rumors of adverse reactions (harrison narcotic act, marihuana tax act, controlled subtances act, rave/meth act, analog act...) - especially when the lawmakers are doing it "to protect the children", now, innit?
