Why You Should Visit A Kava Bar

We’re starting to see the rise of the Kava bar, a scene that’s always been active but is now growing even more. A Kava bar is a bar that serves Kava, a brew made from the Kava plant that puts you in a mellow, relaxed mood and has powerful health benefits. In this article, you’ll find a list of the best Kava bars in the USA.

What you can expect when you visit a Kava bar

There are several strains of the Kava plant, called “cultivars”. Each individual strain has its own effects, from more happy and psychoactive effects that put you in a soft, mellow mood to bodily effects that reduce pain and bring complete relaxation.

In a Kava bar, you can try out different strains. If you’re planning on buying Kava you haven’t tried before, try it in a bar (just make sure the bar serves Kava of good quality).

Having fun, meeting new people and relaxing in a happy environment is what a Kava bar is all about. If you’ve never had Kava before, Kava bars have staff that is friendly, welcoming and informed on what they’re serving. So don’t be nervous, you’ll receive a warm welcome.

Owner on the risks and legal experiences of owning a Kava bar:

LovaKava was under attack by the State of Oregon and for a few weeks was shut down, simply for preparing and serving Kava. We lawyered up, costing us several 10s of thousands of dollars. The state and Lane County immediately backed down because our case was solid.

We tried to ask other kava bars to help us out with the cost and that I would happily share our legal argument. No one did. Now, because they ignored my offering to share my legal argument, the states of CA, NY and now it seems FL are shutting down Kava Bars (as of this past week). Now those kava bars are scrambling and asking for help.

Because they ignored my offering they will now be forced to obtain legal advice expenses. My case was based on sound evidence and precedence. That Kava is a food and not a food additive. That’s where these states are getting their ammunition from. Claiming that Kava is a food additive and supplement. I argued against that position.

When importing, our kava is imported also as a food on the import/customs forms. We also have it tested for everything from E. coli to heavy metals. Kava bars are getting in trouble because they aren’t bothering doing these things.
