[Ibogaine] Practicing Iboga Therapy in Canada

I agree Simon that the hcl has to be the way to go for a treatment.  But
perhaps boosters could be done with bark as well as any spiritual use.  The
amount you mention sounds about like the dose I sometimes take about 4 hours
before going mountain biking.  I think the bark is more stimulant like than
the hcl.  At that does I usually find my balance ever so slightly affected
but only enough to make the slightest difference with the mountain biking
and that's a pretty balance intensive activity.  I never notice any visual
effects until the evening in dim lights.

Hi Matt,

The added effect would be from the other alkaloids in the root bark. During
the Bwiti I attended we all took an amount which could be described "dosage
wise" as a pile that fitted within the palm of the hand. This way of working
dosage works well as the bigger you are the larger your hands are. If the
person has more bulk then a little more is given. Now this is just a dose
that is used for Bwiti not an initiatory dose, an initiatory dose: I was
told is sixteen to seventeen times the amount. I had what could be described
as a heaped table spoon in quantity. This was enough to see trails and with
the addition of the music and singing as well as the way they manipulate the
flow of energy I felt the combined effect very powerful and much more than
ibogaine hcl on its own. This is all very well for spiritual or
psychological work, or even in treating afflictions of the mind which is
another topic in its self which I hope to get the chance to share about at
some point. But the point I am trying to make especially where opioid
withdrawal is being treated the hcl is far easier on the patient. It would
be interesting to discover more about the other alkaloids though and I hope
to discover more about this through Bwiti while the funding is still absent
for laboratory work. Basse

Maybe we should all be switching to bark?  That yield is low. If you ate a
kilo of bark you would get way, way, more effect then the equivalent of 1 to
1.5 grams.  Which is good considering you realistically could never eat a
kilo of bark.

And just to add to Patrick's post, on a larger scale it takes half a ton of
root bark to produce on kilogramme of hydrochloride. Besides the difficulty
to grow the plant there are also statutory laws surrounding the export of
iboga from Gabon . The other thing is that it is a time consuming process.
The roots have to be washed and then all the debarking is done by hand. I
was given a rough idea that it would take about six months to produce a ton
of root bark. I am not sure how many people would be working on the project
but it is not a simple task at all and as Patrick said the yield is not very
high for a pharmaceutical grade of ibogaine hydrochloride.

Ibogaine HCl is from iboga root bark, it takes roughly 1 kilo to  
produce 1 - 1.5GM of HCl.  The world demand has significantly  
increased, the availability has not.  The future of ibogaine is most  
likely cell-culture technology; which is presently prohibitively  
expensive to utilize for mass-production.  Once demand hits a certain  
peak, it will become more feasible.

There are of course other possibilities, but ibogaine grows VERY  
SLOWLY, it's difficult to use the cannabis paradigm of Overgrow the  
Government in this case...
