                 This book is likely the most detailed guide ever written on what is considered one of nature's most effective intoxicating and stress-reducing entheogens. It includes details on scholarly research that shows the superiority of Kava to pharmaceutical grade drugs used for reducing stress and anxiety. This great literature also covers the traditional spiritual use of this plant as well as the political, and economic importance of it. Aside from the intoxicating and spiritually enlightening properties of Kava, there is even evidence suggesting that it's effective for use in treating asthma, tuberculosis, and venereal disease.


It's one of my favorite intoxicating plants of all time. I find it very useful for meditation, an alternative to alcohol, and for relaxing after a hard days work. I find that using it on occasion prevents any sort of tolerance to the very pleasant effects that it offers. The root is very easy to prepare and is simply squeezed out into cold water as it was traditionally consumed by Vanuatu Islanders for centuries.

The first paperback copy of this guide was published by Yale University Press.
