It’s difficult to have a conversation around the use of psychedelics in addiction treatment without bringing up iboga — a traditional plant medicine from Central Africa. This plant forces you to confront your deepest, darkest traumas and suppressed thoughts, bringing them to the surface where they can be integrated and healed. However, this isn’t without its fair share of risks. In this comprehensive guide, we will delve into the world of ibogaine, exploring its origins, effects, safety considerations, and potential in addiction treatment.

What is Ibogaine?

Ibogaine is a psychedelic alkaloid found in several species of plants in the Apocynaceae family, with Tabernanthe iboga being the most common source. It has a long history of use as both an appetite suppressant and spiritual medicine before its emergence as an anti-addiction treatment. While ibogaine shows promise in addiction therapy, it also carries health risks that set it apart from other psychedelics.
