The information below is for iboga root bark. The root powder is not as strong as the root bark and is sold for those who like to expiriment with iboga.
Iboga is the powdered root bark of the Tabernanthe iboga plant, which grows in the rainforests of Central Africa, especially in Gabon and Congo. It contains a dozen indole alkaloids of which ibogaine being the most important. Ibogaine is a strong psycho-active stimulant, which in high doses produces hallucinogenic effects. Iboga visions are multi-sensual, affecting all five senses. For some it also leads to an encounter with the Divine. Among the native population the bark of the iboga root is chewed during hunting to be able to stay motionless and alert for days, or to perceive visions from their ancestors during initiation rites.
Low doses: leads to light flashes, sensory enhancement and motorial difficulties.

Soak in hot water for half an hour. The drink can then either be strained and drunk or simply drunk with the plant material. Some people combine it with other plants, such as Alchornea floribunda or Cannabis.
Native cults use 2 or 3 grams for women and 3 to 5 for men. Take a maximum of 5 grams for a psychedelic effect. In the Bwiti cult the drug is taken in 2 ways: regularly in small doses before and in the early part of their ceremonies, followed after midnight by a smaller dose; and once or twice during the initiation to the cult in excessive doses of 1 to 3 basketfulls over an 8 to 24 hour period. This to “break open the head”, thus inducing contact with the ancestors through collapse and hallucination.
The first time take a small dosage (0.5 - 1 gram) to test your sensitivity to iboga. An iboga trip can be intense and people can react differently to it.
Make sure a sober, preferably experienced sitter is standby to avoid any accidents.
Do not use when: pregnant, depressed, on medication, driving motorised vehicles, under 18 years old, in combination with other stimulants or alcohol. When in doubt consult your doctor.
