Kava Kwik – The Drink of Peace

Kava kava is traditionally drank out of half of a coconut shell in Fiji and is also consumed in other Pacific nations. It’s known for it’s relaxing effects.

The first time I heard about kava, it was from one of my friends who bought some in powdered form online. He said it was supposed to have a relaxing effect. Long story short, he and my other friend decided to mix it into a protein shake and chug it.¬† I’m not sure what the reasoning was for this method, but I was a bit reluctant to try kava after they both got sick from it.

I wanted to wait to visit Vanuatu¬† and drink it in the traditional way, but I’ll leave that for another post. Curiosity has gotten the best of me and I decided to order some kava online instead.
