    I am also very interested in this compound, from a plant from the erythroxylon family ( same as coca) with reported light stimulant / aphrodisiac qualities. swim's experiences with the bark were a let down, but maybe extraction will prove to be more interesting.

    Hmmm... It's related to Coca, it's nick-named "Brazilian Viagra", somewhat cheap and completely legal...For SWIM this is a no brainier!

    Tomorrow I will pick up some Catuaba :)

    I will do a initial 7 day trial then report here:
    Erythroxylum Catuaba information and experiences. then follow up from there if appropriate.


    Question

    SWIM's also heard people describe it has mood-lifting abilities... is it possible adopts similarities with Coca in the sense of what happens with dopamine and such?
