Our Kava is then thoroughly washed and hand peeled in a state of the art facility before being air dried indoors, rather than being exposed to the elements to be sun dried. Air drying preserves the Kavalactones while the UV rays and heat from the sun degrades them. Our proprietary processing technology achieves full spectrum potency like no other method on the market today.
Even if quality roots are used as starting material, improper solvent selection, temperature, and extraction time, can drastically change the quality, and even safety profile of Kava. With our unique processing methods, we are able to achieve a full spectrum extract that retains the chemotype of our premium starting material and provides unparalleled water solubility found in no other powdered kava extract! Each batch of Polynesian Gold brand extracts are rigorously tested and must meet extremely strict quality controls before the Polynesian Gold brand name is bestowed upon the product. We test our materials for microbiological, heavy metals, pesticides, as well as Kavalactone content. Not only do we test the total kavalactone content, but we test each individual Kavalactone to ensure that the chemical profile of our extract is of a desirable noble chemotype. The result is a consistent, high quality kava product that represents the very best kava of Noble variety Kava. Fact: 99% of Kava CO2 Extracts that are found on Alibaba are Tudei chemotypes! Through years of lab testing and reviewing the chromatographic data, it is clear that cheap Chinese Kava extracts offered on Alibaba and other trade sites are produced with undesirable varieties of Kava such as “Tudei” or simply scraps and chips of unidentified varieties.
The result is a kava product that contains undesirable chemical profile which leaves the user feeling tired, groggy, uninspired, and nauseated. Our contract labs use our raw materials, our extraction method, and our quality markers to produce some of the finest Kava extracts on the market.

Let's face it - there haven't been a whole lot of great "to go" Kava options on the market. Almost every Kava "capsule" that has been released - Kona Kava's Kavalovetones, Gaia Herbs Kava, Solaray Kava - has been at best something that tastes like Kava if you crush it with your teeth. At worst, they are worthless investments that do absolutely nothing. With the exception of Yogi Tea's "Kava Stress Relief," I have never found a dry root, fresh root, or instant Kava replacement that truly delivers kavalactones "on the go." Sometimes you absolutely need Kava when it's not quite easy to brew up a bowl of grog. Paradise Kava, who have brought us fresh Hawaiian Kavas such as "Black Beauty Blend," or dry root Kavas such as "100% Awa," also offer a couple different solvent-free Kava extracts. Each small bottle is $12, which is a steal considering I still haven't gotten through one of them (though I have been dipping into two different ones). They are by far the strongest and most effective "instant" Kava solutions available. Adding to that, they are much tastier and more pleasurable than breaking up chunks of instant Kava and mixing it with water. Each of these extracts comes in a small ointment-sized container that resembles a lip gloss or make-up of some kind. The directions are to get a pea-sized quantity on the end of a popsicle stick (I used a matchstick, because it was easier) and place it under your tongue. The extract comes in two flavors - "Chocolate and Orange" and "Honey and Lemon." They are both extraordinarily delicious. The "Chocolate and Orange" flavor has a kind of orange, mint, and chocolate chip type of flavor and the "Honey and Lemon" tastes something like a lemon bar dipped in honey. To be honest, I would flip a coin if I had to choose between the two. They are both very good, though I've found myself reaching for the "Chocolate and Orange" more than the "Honey and Lemon." Just like Kava from the shell, this stuff gives you a strong numb feeling in your mouth and throat. Most poignantly, it gives you a strong buzzing numbness under your tongue and your inner gum line. In terms of the actual feeling of this extract, it resembles Paradise Kava's 100% Awa, which is my personal favorite of the dry root Kavas available. I'd say three or four pea-sized doses of this stuff put you on level with about two shells of the 100% Awa. As I just finished writing my Master's Degree thesis, this stuff has really got me through the last six weeks.
When feeling overwhelmed with stress, nothing hits the spot like some Kava. When brewed Kava root is too tedious to make, having this with you can be a lifesaver.
Much of Hawaii hemp crop destroyed as farmers search for viable cultivars. More than 50% of Hawaii’s 2019 hemp crop had to be destroyed because of elevated THC levels, a problem that state agriculture officials attribute to a lack of cultivars suited to a tropical climate. Eighteen crops were destroyed and another four hemp crops exceeded legal THC limits but were granted waivers because the THC was close to the legal limit of 0.3%, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported. The state faces a formidable challenge developing a hemp industry.
