Differentiate between high and low quality kava.

First only buy noble varieties of kava. Tu dei kava varieties result in undesirable side effects such as headaches and nausea for a couple of days.

Secondly, choose kava that is only made from the lateral roots (waka) and basal roots (lewena). Pure waka powder which is what we sell at Viti Kava has a stronger effect compared to lewena. Under no circumstances should one consume kava powder which contains stems (kasa) or leaves. Pacific Islander natives have only consumed kava made from roots for centuries without any major side effects.

Thirdly, good quality kava is fresh and cleaned well. At Viti Kava we import new batches every 4 months and our kava processor cleans and packs to FDA standards.

Lastly the kava needs to be matured to at least 3 years. Kava lactone in kava roots is optimal when the plant is at 3 years of age and continually increases at a slower rate.
