A recap of Yerba Mate effects on the mind and body

Yerba mate, when consumed in sufficient quantities (1-2 liters of tea made from 8 tablespoons for ex) will give you a modified state of consciousness that is:

- energizing
- dreamy
- fluid
- floating
- slight vibe
- relaxing
- enveloping
- consciousness is decidedly altered
- maintaining reasoning and stability
- ineffable tactile sensations
- tingling, ants on skin
- feel it rushing in my brain
- pleasant feeling of euphoria inside the body
- enhanced sensorials - touch, hearing, taste
- calming, centering, contemplative

Well I hope I got the gist of it. Try it and tell me your experiences.

I have heard this state called being 20 gourds deep and I think that is a good name for it. I know exactly what your referring to and agree that it is something akin to kanneh bosem.

the site is great. i came across a publication that i feel like i should share (as much i dont want it to be true) http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/
title:Non-alcoholic beverages and risk of bladder cancer in Uruguay

just type yerba mate in the search. I drink about 1 liter a day, and would to hate to have to give it up. I would be intersted to hear the opinions of mate lovers everywhere.

thanks

Hello!
Awesome sites! I love yerba mate, especialy Rosamonte!
Look on my yerba mate site: yerba mate

Uruguay said...

I'm Uruguayan. Drinking mate is more common than drinking tea here.I have been drinking it since I was about 12- 38 now- and have never experienced most of what you mentioned. It is accurate to say that it gives you a "body high". If you're letargic it energizes you, if you're worn out, it restores you. It contains caffeine but in less amount than that found in tea. It is laxative too. If it is a hot summer day, drinking hot mate makes you feel less hot, and if it is winter, it makes you feel warm. But that's it!
It is not addictive. It doesn't do things to your mind a cup of coffee wouldn't do!
I understand you are new to it and think it exotic and enjoy the feeling of having your energy restored- physical energy, that is. But comparing it to cannabis or any other drug? Come on!

DrDude said...

Yeah dude I think its like cannabis because of the theobromine acting on your cannabinoid receptors. The same goes for chocolate as it contains theobromine. I mix a quarter pound of ecoteas organic unsmoked loose yerba mate with a liter of water in a pyrex bowl, mix it up, stick it in the freezer overnight, thaw it out, and strain it out with a fine mesh stainless steel strainer. LOTS of dopamine released after drinking this super dark drink. Better than many street drugs for sure. Cheers!

Hi there!

I loved Einstein´s pic!!!

You can get the best organic yerba mate in loose leaf form and in tea bags on www.mymateworld.com 

You can also learn how yerba mate is traditionally brewed here : www.mymateworld.com/step1.htm

A wide range of mate gourds and bombillas are also found as well as very helpful information.

By the way, have you tried "Titrayju" ???

Greetings!

It's great to see someone talking about the effects of yerba mate. We drink it on a regular basis now, even started our own company called MyTea selling flavored yerba mate tea bags. Check it out if you're looking for more info on the subject.

Thanks!

Chris said...

this blog is excellent. I know what you mean though it does give you this dreamy out of body energy feeling. definitly entheogenic though

Kim and Joe said...

Just had my first mate today (other than the drinks in the refrigerated section) - whoa! I had 4TBS in 2 cups. Four hours later and I'm still feeling quite good!

Will I build up a tolerance quickly or will I be able to enjoy this small amount for a while?

Would you be able to compare the different yerba mate brands out there sometime?

Enjoy the site!

YerbaMan,

I love your sight! These are really cool yerba experiments. I'm going to give them all a shot. I just started the Great Mate Journey in an attempt to find the finest yerba in the world!
