Salut planteur,

Yes in fact like I said, the little that I tried was extremely bitter and brought back memories
from my initiation in Cameroon. So I don't think I'm going to have a problem with this.

If you wish to send me a sample, I'll be glad to make comparisons and post the results... If you sell
better rootbark, at a reasonable price, I would be interested in doing business with you.

I must say though that Jean Claude has been honorable in our transactions, so I'd want for people to know that.

I don't understand why some of your friends would buy from him in the first place.

all the best,

  Adam are you sure what you got from Jean Claude is  
  Iboga, some of my friends bought from him, it wasn't Iboga, it looked like it and tasted like it though, did you try it? just a spoon should be enough to make you feel alert and focused. test it please.

    Nick old man!!!

    You went thru that stuff as though it was cornflakes...
    You left them stumped you know that..? They gave you a frigging
    bowl and you just gobbled it up and a then few glasses and you 
    downed those as well... all within the first *#@! hour!!!!
    They never had someone pull a stunt like that, let alone a white guy...  
    Of course, you left the galaxy for about a week and you didn't know 
    any of us when you came back, for over a day you didn't even know 
    your own name... I'll never forget that, looking at you and seeing 
    someone who's just landed back on earth and is waiting to pick up
    his identity.... 

    Those were the good ol' days.. ok, maybe not....

    Btw, I heard that one can take rootbark rectally... I presume it's not the
    pieces and bits but some kind of enemaic concoction... on one hand, this 
    apparently bypasses the liver but it's supposedly more powerful and no 
    nausea nor throwing up...

    Any recipe you can impart?


    p.s. I hope this is cool, I'm posting a very small jpg from our first night.... I'm the one at the
    far end...
