We want you to enjoy your Kava experience so here are a few Do's and Do Not's when it comes to Kava consumption...

Drink kava on an empty stomach. Kava is most effective on an empty or nearly empty stomach. A full stomach may prevent you from feeling the full effects of Kava. It is recommended to drink kava 3-4 hours after eating. In a small number of cases people will feel slight nausea if they drink kava on a totally empty stomach and find that eating a piece of fruit or small snack before or after will prevent this.

Stop drinking kava if you start to feel nauseous. Wait 10-15 minutes after each drink to allow the effects to take place. If you start to feel dizzy or nauseous when drinking kava, it’s likely kava’s way of telling you that you’ve had enough to drink for the night!
