Who is Gourmet Hawaiian Kava?
Gourmet Hawaiian Kava is a Kava Grower in Hawaii who specializes in selling unique and varied Kava strains. In Hawaii, Kava goes by the name of ‘Awa. We are not a reseller or a Kava Bar but we are a Boutique Kava Farm. My name is Chris Allen and I am the owner of this Kava Farm. I am somewhat of a Kava expert having actively engaged in the research, study and growing of kava for over 20 years. My mission statement and life long dream is simple. There are 13 known strains of Kava in Hawaii that were cultivated by the Islanders thousands of years ago and I want to grow them all and provide them to you Fresh from our Farm. I have been the President of the Hawaiian ‘Awa Council for the past 15 years. As president of the Council, it is my duty to educate people about this beneficial botanical that has been used for centuries by Islanders for both medicinal and social uses. Please visit my Kava Blog at the Kava Library.
What is Gourmet Kava?
We chose to call ourselves “Gourmet” because we grow and sell Rare strains of Kava that you won’t find anywhere else in the world. When you see a harvest date on our Kava, you know that Kava came from our own Farm and nowhere else. All our Kavas are “Noble” which means that have been safely used by Islanders for thousands of years. Like the coffee growers in Hawaii, we are a U.S. company who must abide by strict safety and wage standards. We cannot compete with Third World Islands on price but we can compete with anyone in the world on Quality. Our Kava is grown and harvested here in the United States on the Big Island of Hawaii and it sells fast. It does not sit in dank overseas warehouses waiting to be shipped to the U.S. We have high turnover on our Kava so we stagger our harvests to make sure we always have Farm Fresh Kava for sale. There are three basic types of Kava that we sell:
- Instant Kava
- Micronized Kava
- Kava Root Powder
What are the Psychoactive Properties of Kava?
The Active Psychoactive Ingredient in Kava is the Kavalactone. There are 6 main Kavalactones in Kava and the chemotype is a 6 digit number that shows you which Kavalactones are dominant. Kavalactones are known to effect the mind and body while allowing the consumer to retain Mental Clarity. A specific combination of Kavalactones (Chemotype) can provide unique Psychoactive effects including:
Kava Connoisseurs will select specific Kava strains with unique chemotypes to get the medicinal or social effect they seek. As we say on the Farm, we have a Kava for every occasion. For example, I am a farmer and I love the Papa Kea Kava for pain relief. Knowing your Chemotypes is very important. You can read more about Chemotypes in the Kava Library.
