Kava Kava CO2 (TOTAL)

Adam Michael has this to say “From the same genus as black pepper, this kava kava CO2 extract comes from the roots of the plant which in this instance hail from Vanuatu. If you read up on kava kava you will unearth this is supposedly capable of completely freeing a human mind from social anxiety, you will read how it elevates people, delivering a sensational high of euphoric proportions not comprehensible and far superior to consuming anti-depressants and without effecting mental clarity, and I wholeheartedly agree.

This prized constituents responsible for the amazing feelings are called kava pyrones which are present at 60% in this total extract and broken down as follows, methysticin 8.0 %, 7,8-dihydromethysticin 7.3 %, d,l kawain 14,4 %, 7,8-dihydrokawain 17.2 %, yangonin 7.0 %, 1,2 desmethoxyyangonin 6.0 %.

Aesthetically this is not overly pleasing material on the eye, it is yellow in colour with a paste like consistency comparable to a pan of over-cooked lentils. With gentle warmth this will become liquid and easy to work with. Thankfully the aroma is a delightful, really warm, rich and somewhat peppery.”
