There is some evidence to suggest that people can become addicted to kava, although the risk of addiction appears to be relatively low compared to other substances. Kava is a plant-based substance that is traditionally used in some cultures as a sedative or to promote relaxation. Some people use kava as a natural remedy for anxiety, stress, and sleep disorders.
While kava is generally considered to be safe when used in moderation, there have been reports of people developing a tolerance to kava and experiencing withdrawal symptoms when they stop using it. Withdrawal symptoms can include anxiety, irritability, tremors, and insomnia. However, the risk of addiction to kava is thought to be lower than the risk of addiction to other substances, such as alcohol or opioids. It is always important to use any substance, including kava, as directed and to talk to a healthcare professional if you have concerns about addiction or withdrawal.
