This is a blog about scientific aspects of kava (Piper methysticum).  The content here is an offshoot of my postings on Kava Forums.  Kava Forums continues to be your best source for comprehensive information about kava: tips for beginners, vendor reviews, news about the kava business, and lively discussion among the 4000+ registered users there.  The topics addressed in this blog are mostly limited to more technical aspects of the science of kava, including discussion of the scientific literature, and also my own original (amateur) research.

Some of the content on this blog was previously posted on my “Kava Science Forum.” A simple blog format seemed to be better suited to my purpose here, which is mostly just to have a place to post my occasional thoughts about the science of kava, rather than to try to run a full blown discussion forum.
