I am currently not working with Ibogaine. I leave this information up to help people better prepare.
What is Iboga / Ibogaine?
It is the only medicine known to man to end heroin withdrawal in one dose, with no sickness, no cravings, and no depression. It is all in the medicine. Anyone who has experience administering Iboga in a professional and ethical manner will be able to help.
Throughout my page I interchange "Iboga" with "Ibogaine". The forms that people consume are as follows:
(Most of the following information I gathered from the research and hard work of Dr Chris Jenks, the scientist responsible for developing the Jenks Tec Iboga Alkaloid Extraction.)
Iboga Root: People dont actually eat this one, but many internet sites are happy to sell it. The alkaloid content is too low to be beneficial, especially considering that the root is hard on your stomach.
Iboga Root Bark: This is the form that the people of the forest in Gabon consume. It is the second thin layer on the root. Of the entire plant, this is where all the magic happens. There are hardly any discernible Iboga alkaloids within the fruit, bark, stems, leaves, seeds, or anywhere else for that matter. It is all within the thin second layer on the root. The outer bark of the root is scraped off like peeling a potato. The second layer is whittled off with a knife, and the initiate chews and swallows it. Powerfully bitter! Because an alkaloid content within the root bark can be estimated between 4-6%, it requires consuming very large quantities. Keep in mind that initiates wait their whole lives, and prepare for months. Working, and traveling to the Iboga is all part of the deal.
Iboga Total Alkaloid (Iboga TA; Indra): This is the product of a first extraction, containing all of the Iboga alkaloids. The TA must be tested by the person responsible for production. Using a basic extraction method can create TA that is 30%. Lately there have been improvements in the process that have resulted in increased yields. Because of these improvements, I am not able to tell you what percentage present TA is. I have heard rumors of extremely high percentage TA (as high as 65%). Taking more iboga than you planned could be very dangerous. I only work with consistent, tested Iboga products.
PTA HCl: I dont use it. It is a second extraction that purifies the TA from 30%, increased to 60% or more. It is not something I am familiar with, so I don't play with it.
Ibogaine HCl: This is a final extraction taken from PTA. This is ONE of many alkaloids within the Tabernanthe Iboga. What was perhaps a kilo of root bark, has now become a couple of small capsles of pure Ibogaine HCl.
Is Iboga really a cure to opiate addiction?
Iboga stops opiate withdrawal, and it has the effect of creating a mild sense of well-being that lasts for months. This is very important. A person will have time to restructure their lives, and not have to worry about being sick, cravings, or depression. This WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY is about 3 months. For some, it can be as long as a year. Others say 2 months. Anything less than 2 months is evidence that the Iboga was not properly administered. When this window is finished, there is no crash. It is as if you are the same person you have always been, but without the addiction. You will have no excuse to use drugs. You can work hard to restart your life, make friends, and live some adventures. Or you can work hard to become an addict again. The choice will be yours. You will decide for you, and not because you are sick, or you have depression, issues, or cravings. And no matter what your choice is, I wont make you feel bad about it. We all do what we do. I just want to help.
