Return & Exchange Policy

We strive to provide the very best kava on the planet. From building our own fully GMP compliant facility specifically tailored for processing kava, to our in house analytical laboratory that tests each batch of our products as well as other commercially available brands, we can confidently say that we have some of the  highest quality kava products available anywhere.

If you are not satisfied with the Kava you've received, you may return the remainder of the product to us for a refund or exchange equal to the amount of the unused product, minus shipping, within 30 days of receipt of your order. Please contact us at to initiate a return. Please note that if you purchased a Root of Happiness product from a retailer or other vendor and are not satisfied, you MUST return the product to your place of purchase.
