My Friend,

Very good, you find some iboga roots . Do you know gabonese eat iboga roots(
fresh bark or dried iboga) like that from centuries and they have the
knowledge. Do you know how iboga works?. Are you a shaman to eat yourself
Please, if you want to take iboga, why you don't go to Gabon and eat iboga
in a ritual Bwiti? It is 100% better and extraordinary and shamans will
teach you a lot.
Taking iboga in your room with friends will discredit iboga in the future
and we tried to do opposite. It is not a game. Iboga is a drug( the best
drug) but not a game to be out of order. If taste is nasty, it is
necessary... You have a lot to learn my friend.........

I wish you a good time with your homemade extract.
