So I took 5 x 300mg 30% extract kona kava
farm pills stirred well in a glass water and olive oil on a very empty stomach. I've taken up to 10 but it's the first time I put some olive oil as I now know it's fat soluble.
I think they might have hit me harder this time with the olive oil, that or this batch is stronger (as it's a new bottle I got, they looked slighlty darker than the last bottle). Not that it worked to decrease anxiety in any way, but I fell more of what seem to be the kava after effects 6+ hours after intake: feeling hot, hotter than normal, specially the head, and an overall "clogged up and dry" feeling that's hard to describe, feels a bit like cannabis
says, I feel irritated, a bit anxious and restless and a bit of headache aswell, and sleepy (this last point being good).
It just feels like it might raise blood pressure me thinks, although it's hard to prove without any measurment, but it's been a consistent feeling with every time I've used it... my pulse also, it's 80, and that is normaly a bit less at rest I'm sure.
Anyone goes through the same thing? any science on kava and blood pressure? According to a website it causes pulmonary hypertension
with chronic use, so that might be it!
