Kava is calming beverage that is created by processing the roots of the kava plant, typically by drying and grinding the kava into a powder. This powder is then soaked in water and made into a tea, which is drunk for a pleasant, relaxing, and calming effect.
But what dosage is the right amount for kava? Kava dosage is a somewhat complicated topic, given its effects and all of the different ways of consuming kava and measuring it. I’ll go into it in detail in this article.
I’ll also consider many of the other factors that contribute to the impacts and effects of kava.
Kava Dosage – Medicinal Recommendation
The classic recommended dosage of kavalactones is no more than 250 mg per day. This is what a user would likely receive from two-three tablespoons of good medium-grind kava, prepared the traditional way. This is a reasonable target, and would likely result in a sensation not wholly unlike the consumption of a single Vicodin tablet.
