KAVA
    #565152 - 06/17/11 07:05 PM (5 years, 5 months ago)

I've tried it many times before in Hawai'i, and I've never really felt any effects except for a numbing sensation in the mouth.
I just got a hold of a half pound of powderized kava root.
I drank two glasses with a heaping tablespoon in each.

All it does is slightly numb my mouth, I've never gotten a benzo-like effect. It's just too mild.
I also took 1mg of clonazepam earlier, and usually take it daily.
Could that be why the kavalactones don't produce any effect?
I do notice an increase in vivid dreams though when I sleep.
So that's cool. But I think it's overrated. It's fun to drink though.

:shrug:

Yeah at first I didn't care for the taste, but it kind of growed on me, so I like it.
But dang, I can't believe that it doesn't really give an effect. I'll try another with the same dose and see how thangs do.
Three times a charm.

Are you sure part of the nausea wasn't due to the LSA?
LSA is notorious for causing nausea. Either way, I guess your brain associates that nausea with kava, because of it being involved.
I've never felt much of anythang from it.. Yet. Which is why I bought a half pound to experiment with.

Experiments good man.

i always hear that smell is the most powerful sense, and i think what happened is that my mind just combined kava and lsa together in my memory.

so yeah it prolly was the lsa but my mind remembers kava smell as nausea so its involuntary gagging haha

That's interesting about the smell thang. I think the smell of kava smells great, but I know what you mean.
The smell of certain thangs can make me sick too.
Or even the thought of taking DXM makes me want to
:projectile:

I think I figured it out. When ever I made it, I just put it in cold water, stirred and just drank it right off the bat. I never let it settle. Here's something I found from erowid:

Quote:

Fresh powder is made into a cold tea by doing a cold water extraction. This is a simple process where powder is soaked in cold water for 15-20 minutes (or more) . . . "




Sooo, maybe I just need to let it settle in the cold water for a while, and then drank it.

dranks good man
danks good man

make a tincture, if you bought good quality kava root, and you soak it in high proof grain alcohol on low heat it will make a tinct... do a few runs on it, put it in a dropper bottle and you can mix your kava with anything and you'll def feel it this time

I hear tincture is the only way to go with the stuff. That's how I feel with kratom 80x extract liquid.

I need a full gram of that at least to get me :drooling: for a few hours. But it's expensive.

IDK I think I'll stick with just doin' it the lazy way, cuz I'm lazy right now.

My stomach and/or somethang inside me hurts bad right now.
I took 100mg of hydrocodone last night, and could feel the pain in stomach area thangs from the APAP, but o well. I was :feelshighman: so it was all :feelsgoodman: plus I played a bunch of video games and that was feels fun man. I think I'm gonna get some more lortabs, because kava just isn't doin' many thangs.

IDK, I'm currently lettin' the other cup settle in cold water. I duno how long it's been cuz I don't usually keep track of the time, but o well :feelsgoodman: Can't wait to get some opiates :drooling: then I'm gonna smoke a lot of weed in conjunction for the :awesome: synergy.

:happyweed: + :tee: = :feelshighman:

Well I drank the last cup, and noticed a more pronounced numbness in my mouth than I have previously, so it seems that keeping it in cold water for a while is the way to go. Although I don't really notice any benzo-like effects. Wikipedia says that

Quote:

The effects of kava are most often compared to alcohol, or a large dose of diazepam.




I find this to not be the case at all so far. It's nothing like alcohol or a large dose of valium.
But I did feel a slight warmth of euphoria in my chest after drinking it.
That was short-lived as well as the numbness in the mouth.

I would use pods, but I prefer pharmies. And plus I don't have to go through snail-mail. :feelsgoodman:

Will do!! :thumbup:

Yay, I got some opies up in meh.

I'll have to re-try a strong kava dose when I don't dose a benzo prior to dosing kava. I'll keep doing it, and if I experience success with it I'll make sure to report what I did to make it werk.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that.
Thanks for the heads-up. :thumbup:

Quote:

Heavy use of kava with comorbid alcohol consumption or an existing liver condition appears to lead to malnutrition, weight loss, liver damage (causing elevated serum γ -glutamyl transferase and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels), renal dysfunction, rashes, pulmonary hypertension, macrocytosis of red cells, lymphocytopenia, and decreasing platelet volumes.[7]/
