Mate - a Legal Cannabis-type Experience?

Hi all, this is the first post. I'm starting this blog to share with other Yerba Mate fans everyone interested my yerba experimentations.

So, I started using Yerba Mate a month ago and since then I've been drinking the miraculous mate tea every day. Mate was to me a huge revelation. I didn't imagine that something so good can be legal - yet it is and it is also inexpensive.

To me mate is like a cannabis high - the body high part alone - leaving the mind completely grounded in the reality. There is no need to learn to function under mate-high - at most I get a slight dizziness. I know who I am and where I am, I can talk, write, work - anything. It's just that I feel super charged with an amazingly sweet body buzz.

Today I tested a mix of Yerba Mate and Ginseng+Cinamon tea. The ginseng part is just for experimentation. I have also tried Ginkgo Biloba with Yerba Mate. They both enhance the mate-high.

Ginseng is also an aphrodisiac, on top of Yerba Mate which is another powerful aphrodisiac so I feel super charged in more than one way.

Please tell me if you tried these combinations or if you can compare the effects of mate to cannabis. I tried to share my experience with a few of my friends and they claim they can't feel anything - except that they are all unable to appreciate the (slightly) bitter aroma of yerba mate and didn't take enough tea.

See you soon. Waiting for comments.
