But, if you are like me and think... What the heck is Kava?... here's a bit of info on it from the Alcohol and Drug Foundation:

Kava is a depressant drug, made from the root or stump of the kava shrub. Kava comes in different forms, such as a brownish-colored drink, brown powder, capsules, extracts and drops.

Kava traditionally was used to produce a drink for ceremonies and cultural practices, though these days it is primarily used as an alternative to alcohol... thanks to it's similar effects to alcohol.
