Heady kava describes kava products that have a stronger effect on the mind — rather than on the body. They produce feelings of euphoria, increase sociability, creativity, and mental clarity. You feel light — almost as though you’re floating on a cloud.
What is Kava?
Kava (Piper methysticum) is a species of plant originating from the islands of the Western Pacific Ocean. The root of the kava plant has been carefully cultivated on tropical Islands ranging from New Caledonia to Hawaii for centuries. It’s believed to have spread across the ocean through the help of early Polynesian colonists as they set out in search of new lands.
Today, kava has become a popular supplement outside Polynesia for its powerfully relaxing, euphoric, and uplifting qualities. In lower doses, it’s used to calm the mind and enhance creativity, boost sociability, and alleviate stress. In higher doses, it offers potent sleep-supportive and muscle-relaxing benefits.
