Soothing and Relaxing

1 cig. smoked Damiana (plant material)


Picked up a collection of herbs from the local shop, to try to see for myself the effects of these herbs.

I smoked a fat joint of Damiana, expecting little. At the time of smoking, I was looking for a way to put my anxiety to rest and think more clearly. The results were good. The smoke was delicious, and produced a very calm, relaxed feeling. At this moment, about 5 minutes after smoking, I feel refreshed and soothed at the same time. Peaceful.
