Damiana (Turnera aphrodisiaca) is a Mexican herb that has been used for thousands of years in Latin American cultures ritualistically as a sexual stimulant. It has an ancient reputation as an aphrodisiac to increase and stimulate sexual appetite. Damiana may effect the nervous system, soothing anxiety, nervousness and mild depression and promoting a general feeling of well-being or mild euphoria. While often used as a Cannabis or Tobacco substitute, the effect of Damiana is much milder than Cannabis. It makes an ideal base for herbal smoking mixes and is a pleasant alternative smoke. Besides smoking, Damiana can also be vaped or drank as tea or liquor.
