    I've been on the pot for over 10 years & decided to give the harmful stuff away however i was afraid of my ADHD kicking in & HARD. So I tried this product (Damiana) & I RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE trying to give up pot. It was delivered within a couple of days & it has totally relaxed me enough that I don't need to smoke pot or take 6 little pills to help my ADHD. I would suggest this to anyone who needs to give up the pot. Its cheap & does the job 100%. No stoned affect but a relaxing & satisfying result.
