[Ibogaine] need information

Hi Lee,

I was suggesting to test the stuff, not to treat. If you take a dose that,
if it's any good, will give you some effect, then you will know how good the
rootbark is and then you can plan your main dose. If you take 50g without
knowing how good it is, it could be too much. Personally I doubt it. But
it's quite a risk, as if it WAS full strength, then you'd be taking about
the equivalent of around 4g pure ibogaine - could be a killer dose.

This is the thing with rootbark. Unless you really know how good it is, and
there's A LOT of crap rootbark around, it's really hit and miss to try and
treat addiction with it. HCl is usually a lot better because you basically
know, if you get it from someone good, what you're buying.

Personally, I rate the first two guys listed at
www.ibogaine.co.uk/options.htm under "Options for Supply" as having always
sold good product as far as I know. And you're going to be paying a lot more
than £90 (about $160) for 50g for decent iboga. I never heard of decent
quality rootbark going for this price. Even in the Cameroun where they make
it. You CAN buy it for this price but of course it's crap. Just for a few
spiritual seekers to get ripped off with by guys on market stalls in
Brighton etc.

  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/extracthtm

    £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.

                    hi pat
                            how did you get my email address ,there are a
lot of ibogaine cliniks around ,but the problem you will find is  that most
of them are not licensed ,there are cliniks all over the world ,ibogaine is
not for every one ,and it is very tricky when on methadone as they may need
a few treatments as you will all ready no that methadone stays in the boldy
for a long time ,also how are your sons health ,when i say this have they
had blood tests in the last 6  months , also tratment vary in price  you can
pay from £200 up to£15000 for treatments some cliniks are over seas and have
great facilities but some are only after money ,how much methadone are your
sons on do they take it in the form of levery day pick up our do they get in
tablet form , there are many diffrent treatments than my view would be
better than ibogaine ,is the reason they have chose ibogaine because they
dont want to feel the withdral ?yours karl

                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
