3900 mg oral Kava (capsule)


I work at a pharmacy. At work, after reading about the effects of Kava Kava, I decided to buy some. I took 20 capsules at work over a 4 hour period. I seemed to feel slightly happier but I do think part of this has to do with the fact that work was not busy- my typical stresser.

When I arrived home I decided to empty 6 capsules into a tea. 6 capsules of 150mg is equivalent to 900mg. I finally felt the numbness in the mouth that everyone has talked about. I suppose I do feel a slight edge being taken off but at the same time I am off work, the edge creator you might say. Anyway, I will try some more tests but I will say this, to feel the effects one must definitely take more than prescribed on the label 1 to 3 capsules. One capsule seems to me to be a waste, no effect. I say this because 26 in a day, equivalent to 3900 mg, just barely made me feel something. Best of luck.
