The Benefits of Kava Root
What Is Kava Root?
Kava (Piper Methysticum) is a plant indigenous to the Western Pacific. The tall, shrub-like plant’s roots are often gathered for its active plant constituents, kavalactones. Although kava plants contain 18 different forms of kavalactones, only six are thought to contribute to the calming, relaxing effects associated with kava root supplements. The plant extract is frequently prescribed for muscular tension, stress, and a good night’s sleep. Although it is not intoxicating, high doses of kava root extract might produce sleepiness. 1,2
How Does Kava Root Benefit Health and Wellness?
The effect of kavalactones on the central nervous system is associated with kava root’s health and wellness potential. Although the majority of the evidence for kava’s usage is based on animal studies and a small number of clinical trials, current research shows that it has significant anxiolytic, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and neuroprotective qualities. 3
Although there are various sources that claim kavalactones can aid with physical discomfort and immune system support, kava supplements are most commonly used to relieve muscular tension, reduce the impact of stress, and promote restful sleep. Its soothing, relaxing effects are a direct result of kavalactones’ influence on serotonin, dopamine, and GABA, neurotransmitters associated with mood and emotional control, sleep cycles, stress reactions, and more. 4 Research also suggests that it may be beneficial for increasing mood, creativity, and attention. 5
Kava Root Paired with Hemp-Derived CBD
When you look into the various potential benefits of utilizing kava root and hemp-derived CBD separately, you’re bound to come across a list of benefits that appear to overlap. However, you’ll quickly learn that the active ingredients in hemp extract, kavalactones, and cannabinoids, produce those outcomes in distinct ways. Kava root extract has an immediate effect on neurotransmitter levels in the brain. The cannabinoids in hemp oil produced from the stalks, stems, and flowers of naturally farmed hemp interact with the same receptors as well as the receptors of the endocannabinoid system, the regulatory system responsible for practically every critical function in your body (ECS). 6,7
Based on the comments of approximately 2000 CBD users, the majority of individuals report positive effects when using our hemp-derived CBD tinctures, topicals, softgels, and candies for post-exercise soreness, improved sleep, and relaxation. The majority of our survey respondents also report that CBD relieves mild or temporary anxiety and helps to relax their brains. We combined our high-quality full-spectrum hemp oil with kava root extract to see whether it may boost those purported effects and generate a sense of inner calm and tranquillity.
Calm Synergy and Functional Synergy Capsules: Can I Mix and Match?

In fact, most CBD consumers who responded to our poll said they got the best benefits by utilizing various products on a daily basis, as opposed to using a single product on its own. If you’re looking for the combined benefits of numerous CBD products, start your day with a tincture, softgel, or gummy for general ECS support, then add a Functional Synergy Capsule for focus as required, and unwind with a product targeted for rest and relaxation later in the day. You have an option.

Although the most recent data suggests that kava root extract is usually safe for most healthy individuals, it may not be appropriate for everyone.
