hallo sara
thanks for your answer.
actually i think its my own fault to have taken that much, but i guess  
i had to play on edges and the dose was right for me. my provider  
emphasized to be very careful.
i was happy to get this extract for a fair price, since i tried some  
other rookbark 1 1/2 years ago which gave me only stomach problems,  
nothing else.
do you think 15g are already to much for a grown up male of 80kg? maybe  
different extracts have different strengh.
i will be more careful on the girl. to get a professional iboga  
treatment instead is a financial problem. also she prefers to do it  
with me.
how do you find out how much you give your clients?
