Datura?  I think not.  Your friend would most defintely have noticed an effect
from datura.  Definitely.
The "recipe" I heard years ago for Yhuba Gold is:
    4 parts damiana leaf
    4 parts passionflower herb
    4 parts skullcap herb
   1/2 part lobelia herb
    1 part spearment leaf
You can get most (or all) of these herbs at your local health food store or
natural food sotre for very cheap if you want to experiment with it.  It does
make for a light buzz
