Kava in australia?

Recommended Posts

Hi! Not sure where else to post this so chill space it is. 

Apparently kava is legal in australia now and i know some people find it very effective for anxiety. I would like to source some for this purpose,  wondering if anyone knows a good place to get any.  I would like to buy the some not in overpriced pill form,  would like to work out dosage and administration myself. 

Let me know!

Tragically as far as I am aware nowhere to buy it in natural form in Australia (nor legal to do so)... there used to be some mighty fine product available...

Kava was always legal, but import restrictions came in several years ago which made it hard to get hold of. I think 2kg can be brought in with travellers for personal consumption but commercial imports were stopped.

I too miss the days I could walk into the Fiji market on King St Newtown and buy a kilo of waqa for $20 or so...

I've seen it on gumtree quite regularly.

Vanuatu is where it is at.. it has the full kavalactone profile.... Kava from Fiji and elsewhere lacks a number of the {best} kavalactones..

Not sure about down your way, but in the north its still illegal to posses or sell a commercial quantity. You can grow your own. Whats called 'Hawaiian Black' in Australia is the easiest variety to come by. If any one has any others, please let me know.
