Does it work? I did a bit of research on it and it sounds really convincing..
Hi , you familiar with the extracts, maybe we are the same line in our business. :clap:boogieIf you use it, make sure to get the powder and then add it to liquid. Don't buy the pills. You also need to drink quite a bit to get any effect. I used to drink it while I was in the military to calm down. I can't really say if it worked or not for me. I think it did help a little bit. The one thing that was interesting was how it makes your mouth go numb after you drink it. I knew it was going to happen so it didn't bother me, but it still felt weird.
Lemon Balm extract and Valerian Root are also other things you can take.
do NOT use kava kava with alcohol. Its like mixing opiates and benzos. it can really mess you up badly. Even after a couple drinks, you will become completely smashed and you wont be able to move your muscles and you will have breathing problems. rly not a good comboIf you're making a kava drink, it might work to use carbonated water to numb the mouth even more and mask the taste. Also, you could try extracting the kavalactones in vodka for a more concentrated dose.
It depends on dose. If you only use a small amount of vodka as a solvent, it's not gonna affect you. I've mixed kava and alcohol a few times, without anything happening.do NOT use kava kava with alcohol. Its like mixing opiates and benzos. it can really mess you up badly.

There's no real credible evidence out there that it is safe or effective.
^http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10653213 said:The meta-analysis of three trials suggests a significant difference in the reduction of the total score on the Hamilton Rating Scale for Anxiety in favor of kava extract (weighted mean difference, 9.69; 95% confidence interval, 3.54-15.83). These data imply that kava extract is superior to placebo as a symptomatic treatment for anxiety. Therefore, kava extract is an herbal treatment option for anxiety that is worthy of consideration.
