Kava is excellent. Significant relaxation w/ no sides that I can indentify. It can take as long as a week of daily adminstration before the long term anti-anxiety effects of kava will be observed, although if a strong strain is used this effect will be seen immediately w/ deep sleep quickly following.

I've used benzos & of my own free will I choose kava which I feel is vastly superior or drugs.

I backpacked Fiji with two buddies a couple years ago, and during the trip, I had the opportunity to partake in Kava drinking sessions on several nights. It was quite an experience, Fijians can drink Kava forever. Anyways, I would say that Kava made me quite calm and mellow. As I learned from many of the villagers, Kava as actually used as a means of conflict resolution and diplomacy, because it allows those negotiating to be calm and also have a clear head. I would definitely try it to relax or just for fun if you are lucky enough to get your hands on some.

There is a Kava tea from Trader Joe's that's really delicious and really helps calm me when I feel anxious or stressed. Definitely give it a try!
