Course Overview

Kava-Kava, also known as just Kava, has very interesting herbal properties, but is also culturally very important as a medicine, an intoxicant, and for religious, political, and social purposes. It’s pharmacology has been well studied. And it has been shown to have liver toxicities. Is this herb useful medicinally? Does its benefits outweigh its risks? Let’s find out… This is another exciting episode of the Sperb's Herbs, World Herbs podcast. This episode covers the herb Kava-Kava. Each episode covers another traditional herb from somewhere in the world and will go into great depth about it. Besides covering the basics of the herb including its traditional use and functions, we will explore the history, quality, science, pharmacology, evidence, and any potential interactions of each herb. And then there is always something a little quirky about an episode. Whether that is a unique story or an interesting perspective, there will always be something different to learn about episode's herb.
