What is Kava?

Kava is a natural plant grown in the Pacific Islands and has been traditionally used in indigenous cultures throughout the Pacific. While each culture and group of people have their own rituals and uses of Kava, it is most commonly used as a social tool to bring people together as one.

The highly desirable kava varieties that have been traditionally consumed on a daily basis are known as “Noble” Kava. Noble Kava is harvested from roots that are a minimum of five years old and can only be exported by cultivars who have been authorized by the Vanuatu government. Cultivars work in accordance with the “Kava Act 2002” in order to protect the country’s kava’s reputation due to its regulated quality and purity.

Prior to the government’s strict involvement in kava agriculture, the most common kava export was known as “Tudei” or “Two-Day”. Tudei kava is wildly grown and is unregulated for quality or purity. Tudei kava tends to have much stronger effects but is known to cause nausea, kava hangovers and other unpleasant side effects. It is noteworthy to mention that farmers and natives usually don’t drink Tudei. Kapua Kava Bar only serves the finest Noble Root Kava.

There are three varieties of kava root and this ultimate guide will tell you everything you need to know about this revolutionary drink. If you’re ready to kick back, relax and enjoy yourself, come join us at the Kapua Kava Bar in Fort Myers.

Noble Root

One of the most sought-after and coveted varieties of kava, “Noble” Kava is only harvested from roots that are at least five years old. Not only does Noble Kava have a minimum age for harvesting, but the Vanuatu government also regulates who can cultivate and export the product via the Kava Act of 2002.

While these restrictions may seem prohibitive, it ensures that all Noble Kava is of the highest quality and standards. Before the Vanuatu government enacted restrictions, unregulated kava known as Tudei Kava was being exported despite being known for its plethora of negative side effects. Because of this strict quality control, Noble Kava has earned a reputation for being one of the most effective and quality types of kava.

At Kapua Kava Bar we only use the finest Noble Kava available so your experience is always top-notch. We also serve other varieties of kava such as Lateral Root Kava and Basal Root Kava, as well as kratom and other refreshments. Come experience the relaxing benefits of Noble Kava in a friendly and enjoyable atmosphere here at Kapua Kava Bar in Fort Myers — you can find us at 12951 Metro Parkway Suite 15.

Lateral Root

Derived from the long roots of the kava plant, Lateral Root Kava is only makes up about 20% of a mature kava plant. Known as “Waka” in Sothern Pacific culture, Lateral Kava produces more kavalactones (the active ingredient in kava). This, in turn, allows for a more noticeable mental effect and extreme relaxation.

Typically you will find most kava bars serve products that contain Lateral Kava as opposed to pure Noble Kava. However, Lateral Kava can be blended with the next variety of kava we’ll talk about — Basal Root Kava. This combination allows you to experience the full effects of both the Basal and Lateral Kava root, delivering some of the most desirable effects of the plant.

If you’re looking to try 100% pure Lateral Kava, you won’t find any better place than right here at Kapua Kava Bar in Fort Myers. We use 100% Vanuatu Lateral Root Kava in our products, so if you’re looking for some good times you’ll remember, stop by and give us a try!

Basal Root

Known in Fiji as “Lewana”, Basal Root Kava is a thicker, fleshy part of the kava plant that is closest to the stem. Due to the increase in thickness, Basal Root Kava is sometimes referred to as “Chips” amongst kava-fanatics.

Lower in kavalactones, Basal Kava produces a more physically relaxing effect that is typically described as a “body” effect. Basal Kava isn’t typically served in kava bars, however, when it is used, it is usually combined with Lateral Kava. Blending both Basal and Lateral Kava together results in a unique flavor profile as well as a fully encompassing effect on both mind and body.

At Kapua Kava Bar, we have our own Kapua House Blend that is a perfect combination of Basal and Lateral Kava. If you want to experience the fully encompassing effects of kava, our Kapua House Blend is sure to give you what you need.
