Note: Before the epidemic of "designer drugs", including "spice" and "k2",it was used in blends that were not laced with drugs. Until recently, no one had any worries about smoking blends because there were no drugs inside of them. After the outbreak of these "designer drugs" a wave of confusion and fear became widespread. So, I would like to let you know that nothing on this website is to be confused with that smack.
Another name for Damiana is Mizib-coc. The botanical is scientifically refereed to as Turnera Diffusa and is used as an aphrodisiac and tonic. Women in Mexico commonly consume it in the form of a tea before sexual intercourse for a stimulated experience. This prized plant is known to strengthen the nervous system and treat depression. Damiana was and still is also popular among the Native Americans. They use it as a diuretic, tonic, and nervine.
Damiana and other plants are naturally comprised of microscopic "compounds", also refereed to as constituents or alkaloids. Phytochemistry is the study of these pharmacological alkaloids. When you hear someone down play the effectiveness of natural medicine, feel free to inform them of this field of scientific inquiry. Too often do people claim there is no research on a subject without actually conducting the research.
"This one in particular is native to subtropical regions of the Americas and Africa. The history of this incredible and intoxicating flowering shrub also teaches us that it was used as a traditional medicine for coughs, diuretic properties ( increases urine flow ), and as an aphrodisiac agent. According to recent studies conducted on test rats, they seem to support the herbs reputation of use. In Mexican culture, this species is used for gastrointestinal ailments. An extract of the herb has demonstrated antibacterial activity against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria."

The studies conducted on Damiana are ground-breaking because it confirms once again that nature is literally supplying organic material that will destroy certain harmful bacteria. I choose to utilize it in powerful homemade anti-bacterial infusions. Personally, from my experience I believe that it's also an oneirogen ( dream inducing substance). If you work with it enough then I bet you'll discover what i'm talking about. I've combined it with Ginkgo Biloba leaf for quite the effective supplement.
How is Damiana used? There are multiple ways it can be consumed. Capsules can be made, a tea, a tincture, or a spagyric. For tea, you'll want to add a small drop of oil to the water so it doesn't boil over. Cover the tea with a lid so that volatile alkaloids do not extract. Allow it to cool before removing the lid. This is a method that I came up with to preserve the potency of the remaining liquid.

A tincture is made by soaking the plant material in high proof liquor like everclear for about a month. Shake it frequently, and keep it in a cool and dark place. Tinctures ensure that light nor heat damage any active alkaloids in the plant matter. A spagyric is an ancient alchemical preparation procedure where the oils are separated, the salts extracted from the plant ash using alcohol, and then they are all recombined to the
spirit(tincture) to make the final product.
An Introduction - Clearing The Smoke
I first encountered the incredible plant known as Damiana many years ago at a little shop in town called "The Psychedelic Shack". They had a small selection of these cool herbs in little packets, and no they didn't have drugs in them back then. I was very interested because they were natural roots and leaves with cool little readings on the packet about them. I wanted to try them right away after reading. This and Kava Kava root were the first two ethno's that I ever encountered. Note: The quality of this herb varies from vendor to vendor. If you feel that it doesn't work then you probably have some low quality herb.
Many years later I had finally discovered through reading that there are so many plants documented with naturally occurring compounds used as anesthetics, aphrodisiacs, stimulants, sedatives, psychedelics, and so on. The list goes on my friend, and the confusion today about the difference between real and fake does as well. Before the modern synthetic laced blends like "spice", a large range of herbal tobacco alternative blends were on the market with no drugs. It was a key ingredient in many of
these blends because the plant on its own has stimulating effects on humans. Damiana is one of those natural psychoactive and therapeutic plants.
For my first experiment with Damaian I would take the herb and make half of it into tea, and the other half in a cigarette. I first lit up the cigarette and slowly smoked it. I began to feel very funny all over, sorta tingly while colors seemed to enhance themselves in front of my very eyes. These effects were pretty intense, yet obviously noticeable. I felt like I was a cat that just got into a patch of good catnip. I could easily see right away how too much of this stuff could make me feel bad. From my point of view, if you can consume something responsibly, and reasonably you should be able to. It's people who go over-board that make anything look bad for everyone.
Later on that day I had moved on to the Damiana tea. The same thing was so, the effects were a little bit more pronounced, and longer lasting. I did noticed a burnt out tired feeling after several hours. I put about four grams of it into my tea, so I believe that was a little too much. At the time I had no idea that it was also an aphrodisiac.
After consuming the tea, a few of my friends had stopped by while I was sitting on the porch outside. We went over to another friends
house. There we were in a social setting with both males and females. I gotta say, I was the most social person there and definitely chatting it up with the ladies. Not that I wouldn't be doing that already :) I was extremely hopped up on this psychoactive brew, and feeling like a young frisky cat that had been rolling in catnip.
In my conclusion, This stuff is way cool. Like anything else, too much can be bad and may make you feel bad, down, tired, lethargic, or even give you a headache. In my experience and point of view, this herb can be successfully utilized without negative side effects when used responsibly and in moderation.
