Traditional uses
Yohimbe is the only medically recognised natural aphrodisiac. Its use as an aphrodisiac in its native area has been well documented and its unique effects were soon valued in many parts of the world, especially in Europe.

A less documented use of yohimbe is as a visionary plant in ceremonies like the iboga rituals. In modern times yohimbe products have found a wide market, ranging from medically treated impotence and self administered sexual enhancement to smart products like cloud9 (tm) and other herbal ecstasy formulations. It appears to have a very popular synergy with ephedrine containing herbs such as Ephedra sinica and Ephedra gerardiana.

Pharmacology
There are several alkaloids in Pausinystalia yohimbe, but it is the yohimbine which is responsible for most of the recognised effects. Yohimbine is an indole alkaloid somewhat similar and related to ibogaine and mitragynine and is present in the bark of this species to between 2 and 15%.

In small doses of less than 10mg yohimbine is used medically as a therapy for impotence and frigidity. Larger doses of 10-50mg are used as an aid in tantric sexual rituals.

Yohimbine causes the dilation of blood vessels in the lower abdomen which can cause long and very hard erections in men and genital stimulation in women.

Warning: Dosages in excess of 50mg can be very unpleasant and even dangerous. Yohimbine has also been used to treat hypertension, and this effect may have serious consequences for people with already low blood pressure and heart conditions.

Common name: Aphrodien; Aphrodyne; Johimbi.
