It’s been popular in Mexico for centuries because of its medicinal effects on a number of ailments.
The Maya Indians used Damiana as potency-enhancers. With incidental use the genital zone is stimulated, and with long-term use the sexual fitness and endurance are enhanced. The healing and libido-improving properties have recently been scientifically proven.
The psychoactive effect can be compared to the use of a light sort of marihuana. It relaxes and has a euphoric effect. The extract is ten times more potent than the dried herb. The high of Damiana lasts for around an hour.
