    Has anyone tried kava for sleep? I used it once and ended up with rebound anxiety and signs of liver stress. Wondering what others have experienced with it.

    I tried it in tincture form once and it numbed my tongue and calmed my nerves. I have made a tincture myself with valerian root, skullcap, and hops. If helps relax my muscles a bit, and can aid in sleep, but won't nock you out. Next time I will try making a valerian, passionflower, and skullcap tincture with a little California Poppy for pain relief. I hope that will help me sleep.

    @soundasacrystal - are you taking kava root or leaves and stems. I have read that the root is safe but that the leaves and stems can cause liver damage.

    @Little Bluestem It was a long time ago but it seems like it said on the bottle it was just root.
