How long will it take to feel the effects of kava?


One thing to thing to keep in mind is that many (but not all) first time kava users will experience what is referred to as a reverse tolerance, meaning that the longer and more regularly you drink kava, the less you will need to drink at one time to feel the same effects. Some users may feel no noticeable effects, whatsoever, the first time they try Kava. Apart from the bitter (to some, unpleasant) taste of kava and perhaps a numbing of the tongue, throat and mouth (usually a good sign of a decent kava!) there may no psychoactive effects at all. The lengths of the reverse tolerance will vary from person to person. The kavalactones (chemical compounds that give kava its effects) will build up in your body over time, and you’ll find that as you settle in to a routine drinking kava you’ll feel even better and more relaxed than you did when you first started your journey with kava.

It can take up to two or three weeks of routine use to “break through” and feel the full effects of kava but once you do “You Will Know It”.
