Some of our blends contain Damiana, which helps to round out the pleasing effect from smoking our blends. An herb with many health benefits, Damiana leaves have been used as an aphrodisiac and to boost sexual potency in Central America for many years. Men use it for stamina and in women, Damiana is said to restore the ability to achieve orgasm. Damiana is used by many in the states as well but is not as well known as in other countries.
Damiana, as an extract or tea, is recommended by top herbalists as a sexual tonic, though the herb’s other qualities make it popular as well. Known to stimulate the intestinal tract & as a kidney tonic, it can also increase energy levels and is used by many to relieve depression. Smoking the leaves has a calming effect while bringing a lift to your mood.
One herbalist states “Damiana affects the psyche, producing a mild emotional uplift that can last for up to one and a half hours. Some damiana before bed relaxes one for love-making and promotes pleasant dreams (quite possibly erotic within the first seven days)! Three-dimensional effects and colour appreciation may also be heightened.”
