Damiana Smoking Herb
Damiana - (Turnera Aphrodisiaca )
Damiana is known for its relaxing impact that dates back as far back as the Maya culture. Damiana as a smoke produces a mild euphoric type of high that can last for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. It has also been used as an aphrodisiac. Damiana can also be made into a tea.
It is known for stimulating libido and is often used as an aphrodisiac as well as a relaxant. It is also known as herba de la pastora and Mexican damiana. Damiana has been long used as a relaxant and aphrodisiac. Native Mexican Indians were known to drink sweetened Damiana tea and it is believed to be one of the original ingredients of margaritas. The use of Damiana as an aphrodisiac has continued into modern times. In fact, recent studies have shown that it does cause an increase in sexual activity in rats, though it has yet to be scientifically tested on humans. Damiana is used both for its libido stimulating effects as well as for the somewhat narcotic effect it causes. The effect of the tea is believed to be similar to the high obtained from smoking marijuana..
