Kava powder, also known as Kava Kava, comes from a native plant in the Pacific that grows in Polynesia, Hawaii, Fiji, Tonga, Samoa, the Solomon Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, and the Republic of Vanuatu. The word “Kava” comes from the Tongan and Marquesan word for “bitter.” The plant’s botanical name, Piper methysticum, means “intoxicating pepper.”
Where to Buy Kava Powder: Getting to the Root of Things
The Kava you buy comes from a small shrub that grows up to 2 meters in height with roots of up to 60 cm in length. Kava powder is traditionally created from the root of the plant and is used for medicinal and ceremonial purposes. Containing 18 kavalactones of which at least 15 are active, Kava powder produces sedating, anesthetic, and euphoric effects.
Traditionally, Kava powder was utilized by native Pacific peoples as an entheogenic drink with sedative, anesthetic, and pain-relieving properties.
Believed to first be domesticated in New Guinea and the Republic of Vanuatu, it quickly spread to other Pacific Island tribes. Separated into two varying categories — “noble” and “non-noble” Kava — Kava power is generally created from the “noble,” or medicinal, variety whereas “non-noble” Kava is considered wild and unusable. Here at Kratora, we strive to make it easy to decide where to buy Kava. We source our Kava powder from the high-quality, noble variety ensuring that when you buy Kava Kava, you are receiving the best quality available.
Since the amount of kavalactones present in Kava depends on the plant’s maturity and other growth factors, many companies have started to make Kava extracts using solvents such as supercritical carbon dioxide, acetone, or ethanol to produce a product with standardized kavalactones. For example, our Kava Powder Extract is standardized to contain 30% kavalactones.
