DOSE:
3 tsp oral Damiana (tea)
BODY WEIGHT: 50 kg
I bought a nice bag of Damiana in Mexico, they sell it (along with heaps of other really interesting herbs) in kind of natural medicine -farmacies.. 25 pesos for 250 grams, nice.

Ive smoked it various times, pure or mixed with a little tobacco and/or weed, but the effects have been really mild - but as an infusion or a herbal tea it worked really fine. I took three cups of water (750 ml) and two teaspoonfuls of Damiana per cup, so six total. (Always good to add one more for good measure.) Boiled this for some 10 minutes, let it sit for a little while, and we drank this with a friend, bit more than a big tea mug each.

The very first sip tasted a little bitter and I thought abut honey, but this bitterness resided and I liked it. Before I had sipped it all down, I started to feel happy, calm and really relaxed. My friend agreed and said he was also really warm, and sweating a lot.
The mental effects were not as strong as with weed and way more subtle, but recognizable and nice, and the bodily effects were kind of enjoyable as well. I like the taste also when smoking it..Blessings.
