In this Episode I talk to Matt Masifilo; former NFL player, Stanford Grad, and Founder of Kavafied. We talk about Kava and it’s anti-anxiety and social benefits, Matt’s family background and how Kava has been a part of the Pacific Island culture, and how he introduced the drink to his NFL teammates.
Matt also founded a company that works to provide Kava to more people, and helps provide sustainability for farmers in the Pacific Islands. I really enjoyed talking to Matt, and learned a lot! … More EP 20: “Kava: The Stress-Reducing Drink that Made it’s Way to the NFL” feat. Matt Masifilo

In this Episode I interview Dr. Christopher McCurdy; a broadly trained medicinal chemist and pharmacologist who’s research focuses on the development of drugs to treat pain and drug abuse.

He has done groundbreaking research on the plant, as well as studied the products sold from different suppliers to evaluate spiked alkaloid content.
Because of my interest in Kratom and the articles I’ve written in the past, I was really looking forward to this conversation. Dr. McCurdy is also featured in an upcoming Netflix Documentary on Kratom that will be coming out next year.
