T+ 0:00
100 ml oral Kava (powder / crystals)
  T+ 1:00 100 ml oral Kava (powder / crystals)
  T+ 1:30   smoked Tobacco  


8:30 pm
Filled protein shaker bottle up to 100 ml line with powder, add water, almondmilk, and some honey. Taste was downright repulsive; had to chug it down. Had a hell of a time straining out all the fibers.

9:00 pm
Have yet to feel any effects. A bit disappointed, although I have heard kava has a 'reverse tolerance' so I'm not too worried.

9:30 pm
Decide to make another glass, again with about 100 ml of powder, but this time I don't add any honey. Big mistake, it was somehow even more repulsive than the first dose, but I down it anyways.

9:45 pm
I finally feel it kicking in. To me, the feeling was exactly like being somewhere in between buzzed and drunk off alcohol.

10:00 pm
Smoke a cigar with a friend. Probably a mistake. Slight headache.

12:00 pm
Still feeling the kava, still have a headache. Decide to go to sleep. Feeling crappy and wanting to throw up.

Next morning
Back to normal, feeling good. Throw away my remaining kava.

Great experience and effects, but with god awful taste.
