100 mg/kg is like 4X the highest dose (25mg/kg) for opiate interuption, 
and from what I understand a lot of providers are dosing more in the 
22mg/kg range.

100mgs/kg would be quite a dose to ingest, and most likely toxic on 
many levels.

I feel sorry for those poor rats who suffer in the name of science.

a blessing for the ibogarodents!
