Kava (Piper methysticum) is an evergreen plant native to the Islands of the Republic of Fiji, Vanuatu, Samoa, Tonga, and Hawaii. Sometimes referred to as the “intoxicating pepper,” kava is a member of the Piperaceae plant family which also includes black peppercorn. But it’s not seeds that make kava so valuable. Instead, it’s the root and rhizomes that take the prize.Kava contains mild psychoactive compounds, which boast anxiety-relieving, analgesic, and sedative effects. But the effectiveness and safety of the plant depend largely on how the root is prepared. Traditionally, kava root is pulverized to medium grind powder and mixed with water or coconut water to create a bitter, pasty drink—a concoction that dates back at least 3000 years
Unraveling the history of kava origins is a bit like solving a mystery. Nobody knows for sure the origins of the kava plant. Most historians generally agree that kava, made from the Piper methysticum plant, was first grown on the islands of Vanuatu starting around 3,000 years ago; though, some have argued that its use began in Fiji or New Guinea. … It then appeared in Polynesia, and also to west including Micronesia and New Guinea. People from Fiji and other south pacific Island have been using kava as a relaxant for over 3000 years and is considered as the national drink which is consumed at all occasions. Over the last ten years, the popularity of kava has been increasing worldwide as more and more people discover the benefits it can bring. More than 180 kava bars have opened all of the U.S. and Florida is the state with the most kava bars.
Kava is available from many sources, but often retailers have little knowledge of their product. They buy from wholesale distributors who simply process “kava”, from their homes with no quality control. Scarcely, any information about its true source, cultivar, purity, or characteristics is unknown. In addition to kava root, these vendors frequently offer extracts, tinctures, capsules, and other kava products that bear no relation to safe, traditional kava use. Many times, these products are made using tudei (two day cultivars,) a type of kava known for its negative effects), and the aerial parts of the kava plant (which can potentially be damaging to the health, rather than the pure noble kava that has been safely used in the South Pacific for over 3000 years. Unfortunately, FDA requirements make no distinction between noble and two-day kava, and merely specify that as a dietary supplement. Kava must be positively identified as Piper methysticum and be free from contaminants. Many vendors do not meet even these simple requirements, and fewer still are able to assure their customers that they will receive truly noble kava.
