Kava or kava-kava (Piper methysticum) is consumed for medicinal, religious, political, cultural and social purposes throughout the Pacific ocean cultures of Polynesia. A shrub that thrives in loose, well-drained soils where plenty of air can reach the roots, kava plants are typically harvested at 3-4 years of age. As time has progressed so have the techniques used to make this sacred island drink.
Bula is a Fijian word with many uses. It is a greeting, but also can mean "life" or "to live". Fijians use it in place of "cheers" before drinking kava. Bula Kava House began in 2011 as a kava bar, or Nakamal, in Portland, Oregon. Today Bula Kava House delivers only the highest quality kava varieties available ... right to your doorstep. Our customers primarily consume kava to relax without disrupting mental clarity.
We are committed to kava testing and supporting the kava community, including the under-acknowledged importance of heavy metal and microbiological testing. All of our kava is independently tested for chemotype, flavokavain levels, heavy metals, and microbiological pathogens.
