Brownish White Kava Kava powder - how do I ingest?
    #4053790 - 04/14/05 10:24 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Well, I just got my order in from IAmShaman, and my free gift was some Kava Kava.

The bag probably has a few grams in it, and it looks like this :

Whitish-Brownish powder, with the occasional larger piece that looks like a wood shaving. I would assume this is Kava Kava root, ground up? If I'm wrong here, please correct me.

I've heard most people on the Shroomery normally drink the stuff?

What ways can you ingest it? I read some experiences on Erowid that said people smoke Kava Kava and it's a mild sedative.

Can you smoke it? How much? Does it mix well with anything?

Thanks - can't wait to try out my new goody bag

I definitely wouldn't smoke the stuff. I usually cut open tea bags, empty em out and put kava kava in them, tie em back up, and make kava kava tea (with other tea). Great stuff, good for drinking with good friends.

Oh really, you can just mix it with water and drink it? No stomache problems or anything?

Use cold water, not hot.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.” (attributed to Alexis de Tocqueville political philosopher Circa 1835)

I just mixed 5 grams of the extract up in hot water and drank a tea. Maybe thats why I dont feel much. Perhaps its just not fresh enough

I got some too from Iamshaman with my kratom and things. It says right on the package to mix with soy milk and drink it, and soy milk is cold so that means to drink it cold. Everything I read on erowid about preparations was all something primarily cold and consuming whole. I don't know where you got the idea to make a tea.

Also, tea sucks in comparison to consuming the substance. If you want to be a real man, take the crap and pour in your mouth and case with water. Otherwise the pussy way to take it would be to grind into a fine power via blender or coffee grinder(the blender works good enough) then get some huge empty pills to fill the power in and consume.

I actually was looking into finding huge fillable pills, anyone know where to buy them? Unless you want to press the powder into a pill form but that costs $$$ for a pill press.

proceed like this:

take some clean cloth and load in the powder, make a knot at top
make some lukewarm water and squeeze the 'bag' inside for several minutes,
causing the water to turn brownish and getting a distinctive taste and smell.

after the 5 minutes, discard the kava in the cloth and drink.
that is about the traditional way of ingestion besides the fact that
usually the roots are ground just before the ritual but it should give you the same effects.
peace ohm :mushroom2:
