[Ibogaine] need information

Sun Oct 1 13:24:15 EDT 2006

according to your info, the root bark at 4% ibogaine if you took 10grams it would be 400mg of ibogaine... that wouldn't be enough to kill the opiate addiction I don't think... wouldn't it be more like 50 grams?? 50 grams / 4% = 2.0 grams of ibogaine..... my math skills blow, but that seems about right to me... I cant imagine that 10-15 grams of rootbark would do the trick.... even if it was the best at 6%.... you would need more than 10-15 grams to blow up a methadone addiction....... 
There is only love, all else is an  illusion.

  Hey Karl,

  The trouble is that a lot of the rootbark available in the UK is shite, in my experience. It hasn't been kept properly and was probably crap when the wholesaler gave it to whoever is now selling it. A lot comes through France and French-speaking countries and these guys are always selling us their crap wine too. Good quality rootbark, and I mean like the best, is about 4% ibogaine base and the other iboga alkaloids add up to a total of about the same strength again. This means really top class iboga rootbark is about 1/12th the strength of pure ibogaine. So, if you were going to take maybe 1.2g of pure ibogaine then you'd need about 15g of iboga rootbark to get the same effect.

  But, like I say, most of the rootbark you get in the UK is shite, and likely completely useless for doing something like detoxing which requires a good blast of iboga energy into the system. Assuming you don't have access to a lab to test it, then the only way you can test it is to maybe do 5 or 10g of it as an extract, or just by eating it. There is instruction on making an extract at www.ibogaine.co.uk/extract.htm<http://www.ibogaine.co.uk/extract.htm>

  £90 for 50g is like really fucking cheap. I mean, maybe you're very lucky, maybe a new source has opened up here which I don't know about, or if you ask me more likely it's just crap. Try some, like I say. At 10g you should get a good basic experience even if you're on heavy opiates. If very little happens then I think you probably need a different source.

        Matt, Karl,

        don't forget that there are other active IBOga alkaloids in the rootbark, too. Calculate them in the dose!

          Whether or not you need more than one treatment is really just a matter of how you react to the initial treatment.  I don't think there are any hard and fast rules relating number of treatments to the dosage you are on.  In other words whoever told you that you will need three treatments doesn't know that with any certainty.  As to how much you need to take for a therapeutic addiction interruption dose, it should be around 25mg/kg give or take a few mg/kg.  So for example if you weighed 100kg then you would need 25mg * 100 or 2500mg, which is 2.5 grams of ibogaine.  When I got off of 74mg of methadone I used an ibogaine dose equivalent to 25mg/kg and it was plenty.  I don't know what the concentration of ibogaine is in the root bark but you should be able to get an estimate that will help you figure out the dosage.  Say for example the concentration is 5%.  That would be 50mg of ibogaine per gram of root bark.  So for our example above you would need 2500mg/50mg per gram which equals 50 grams of root bark.  I used easy round numbers but this is basically the procedure.   But having said this, let me also say that based on your posts to the list and your seeming confusion about list posts being emails directly to you I feel that I need to also say, DO NOT TAKE IBOGAINE LIGHTLY.  As you stated in another post people have died from it.  Make sure you understand what dose you are taking before you take it.  And that is in addition to the myriad other precautions.  An additional consideration for you is going to be keeping all that shit in your stomach so that you absorb the full dose.  You might want to consider getting ibogaine hcl for the treatment dose and saving the root bark for follow up doses.

            You say there are many different treatments that would be better than ibogaine, what treatments are those exactly?  I know of no treatment for opiate addiction that is anywhere near as effective as ibogaine.  None at all.  And, not to be a dick about it but since no one else has called you on it, have you even taken ibogaine?  I know you have said you are (or were) using heroin and are (or were) on methadone, are you still?  You said in your first post to this list that you had some ibogaine then you posted some vague random stuff about getting some.  My point is simply this, what exactly are your credentials to be giving advice to people about ibogaine?  I don't mean to come off as arrogant or anything, my own credentials are simply that I am (or was) an addict, I have taken ibogaine a number of times, and I am now clean, but I try to be upfront that those are my credentials.  I try to speak from my personal experience as much as possible.  This is a public forum and anyone can chime in at any time about whatever they want but that opens the possibility for people to give totally off target advice.  And I believe that uninformed advice can be very damaging so that is the reason behind my confronting you on this issue.

              I am a new subscriber on your list.  My interest in ibogaine began  a number of years ago and I was on an ibogaine list for  a couple of years.  I have two adult sons on Methadone as well as other drug issues from time to time.  They are both interested in ibogaine treatment.  I am a nurse and well aware of the risks and potential benefits of ibogaine. I have done as much research as I can online. I need help finding a responsible clinic.  Because I see it as perhaps a last hope I am willing to foot the bill (to the degree my limited income will allow) but I need to be sure of who I'm paying and who will be taking care of my children.  Does anyone on this list have personal experience and would be willing to talk to me?  One of my sons is rather desperate and wants to do this as soon as possible.  I'm hoping that I have turned to the right place for help.  Thank you.  Pat
