What is Iboga?
Iboga refers to a psychoactive compound taken from plants that contain the ibogaine alkaloid. In Gabon alone, there are numerous plants that contain this alkaloid; however, the main source is the Tabernanthe Iboga plant. These plants grow on the jungle floor in remote regions of West-Central Africa including Cameroon, The Republic of Congo, Angola, and of course, Gabon, the plant’s physical and spiritual home. The plant’s root bark contains the psychoactive alkaloids. After shaving this root bark from the root – Voila! Fresh, ready to eat , powerful, ancient, healing iboga. After consuming the root bark, subjects experience the onset of a dream-like mode of consciousness. During the course of the journey, one may (or may not) encounter existential discoveries, crystal clear visions, memory recollection, and countless other wordly and wonderful things
What is the history of Iboga in Africa?
Since the early 19th century, Iboga has been revered as the foundational sacrament of the Bwiti culture. They consider it the gatekeeper to the realm of spirits, and a master medicine for the mind, body and soul. However, before the emergence of Bwiti, it was the pygmies of the deep jungle who first discovered the plants powers. Archaeological evidence has shown iboga use by humans stretches back over two millenia. Although the true tale of how humans came to learn of the plants powers is lost to history, the subsequent myths that have emerged in its place are fascinating. As with all orally-based traditions, the varying Bwiti traditions of iboga stories differ depending on which sect is telling the story.
Iboga has been extensively praised as a powerful aid to personal therapy. However, in the west, it’s more widely recognized as a catalyst for addiction interruption. When taken by individuals looking to kick addictive substances, namely opioids, it acts to calm, if not completely eliminate the symptoms of addiction withdrawal. The result is a much less painful detoxification process than going cold turkey. Ibogaine is the only substance we know of that’s able to deliver such mysterious effects. How it achieves this is unknown.
