Eric Ott from Island Kava

Please enjoy my podcast with one of the owners of Island Kava Eric Ott! What is Kava? Kava (Piper methysticum) is an evergreen plant native to Polynesia, Micronesia, and Melanesia. 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 that takes the prize. Kava root contains mild psychoactive compounds, which boast anxiety-relieving, analgesic, and sedative effects. Traditionally, kava root is pulverized and mixed with water to create a bitter, pasty drink—a concoction that dates back at least 2,000 years. Kava is an earthy, raw taste reminiscent of the nature it comes from in the south pacific. You may enjoy it’s earthy properties or find it to be an acquired taste.
