Ibogaine, a drug with very peculiar effects

Anonymous (@) 9 years, 10 months ago

Hey HEthens. Just wanted to share some info about Ibogaine. I read an experience of it on reddit, and it sounded awesome. Basically, a trip is like this.
1. you lie down (not a drug to be walking around on)
2. no open eye visuals really, but when you close your eyes, you have visuals that are a bit like lucid dreams, except you dont really control them, and they may be reliving past experiences. and they are unconditionally very clear and high definition.
3. the most interesting point is that everyone that crosses the threshold encounters god. pretty much without fail. you ask questions, and receive answers. it sounds very good for introspection.

it also has huge potential in "resetting" the brains of drug addicts. its illegal in the US, under no regulation in Canada (fully legal, according to wikipedia) and legal for treatment in mexico.

the trip report which is totally awesome, is here:

There are many more amazing trip stories like that on Erowid: http://www.erowid.org/experiences/subs/exp_Ibogaine.shtml

The one experience I remember reading was a guy that had the second consciousness that he could converse with not only during the trip, but for WEEKS after. And it gave him extremely sound advice. Crazy!

“guy that had the second consciousness that he could converse with not only during the trip, but for WEEKS after. And it gave him extremely sound advice.”
Ahhhhhh! Wow!

I’ve taken 200mg before, it was a blissful experience, cured my shopping addiction and boosted my self-esteem. It was the happiest moment of my life. I was going to take 200mg + 800mg, but my body couldn’t handle anymore at the time. I’ll be taking the remaining 800mg later this year or maybe dose up some more :-)

FYI I used an Ibogaine HCl extract from ibogaworld.com – They’re based in South Africa and you can get 1 gram for $245, they will also advise on a personal dosage amount.

@Raphael Wow, that’s really expensive for a ticket to meet god. However, I read through the whole article that James posted.

HOLY COW, that all makes sense. I wish he could even write a book about his journey. I wish I could try that Ibogaine, but I’m too scared to do so. The loneliness feeling, the no-meaning life, the real happiness at death and many things come to me when I use the mushroom.

I can’t imagine how easily am I can commit a suicide if I am taking the Ibogaine. From what he said, the effect is beyond the mushroom. Can’t imagine how loneliness, disappointment, of my life would be increased if I use that Ibogaine.

BTW, Raphael was your trip similar to the guy on that article who went to Mexico?
Can you tell me more I’m so curious?

Jordan Lejuwaan (23,445)A (@jordan) 9 years, 10 months ago ago

@WJ, I would argue that’s a pretty cheap ticket to meet god haha. Hey man, it sounds like you’re going about tripping with the wrong perspective. If you’re having those thoughts on shrooms, you should try out meditation before attempting them again. Please :) Mushrooms make the world infinitely beautiful and meaningful if you use them with a positive (or even a moderately positive) mindset.

, thanks for the link! That’s going to the top of my to-buy list right after a floation/isolation tank session.

@Jordan, I did the meditation before it. However, my point was at one time It seemed like my existence was pointless. It doesn’t matter if I would be exist, doesn’t matter that things exist. That’s the part why I talked that I felt lonely and isolated from the world. I tried to ask myself at that time, which I believe had more understanding than me right now. What’s the point of learning, working, taking care your loved one, forgiving, fighting, and seeing your sons or daughters be happy? The answer that I got was emptiness.

I appreciated the world that we live on, the work I am doing, the one I loved, but at a single moment everything was just an illusion that blocked you from achieving something that is higher. The TRUE Happiness. That’s why I said, I was sad and lonely and isolated.

I can’t recall all of my experience, but one thing that stood out was the fact that why many great TEACHERS weather Buddha or Jesus are not fear the death. Why do THEY try very hard to spread this actual happiness to our?
I think at that time because I saw and experienced at that time the same thing that many great TEACHERS had found. However, I was not dare to accept the rough path that would be the consequence from my choice. So I could only do my own little pointless thing that I imaginary believe in its value and followed them.

Hope somehow it makes sense to you.

No, I didn’t take enough. My trip was about seeing and loving myself, my head filled with pure joy whilst looking at many things I’ve done in my life. At the end of the trip I was reminded of Psilocybin where I experienced the feeling of being everyone and everything which made me feel lonely and scared. For the next few days I had a huge amount of love, patience and understanding with people. Months later I still have this although less intense; about 30-50% more than I had before the experience.

“You humans need to get over yourselves. I am not man, I am not woman, I am not human nor animal. The dog never complains that he isn’t made in God’s image. Learn from him.”

I loved that statement. I’m really surprised how they could remember everything being said.

For those who are thinking about going to a place to do ibogaine treatment, Best place to go and get this is Ibogaine Sanctuary They have been doing this a long time. Two guys own this center, they “partners” are both doctors, one is a MD and the other is a Dr of Energy Medicine. I called them and they let me make payments. Nobody else wanted to help me because i was broke. For the first time in 5 years I have been clean for 6 months straight. This Ibogaine is very powerful, who ever decides to do it, be prepared to trip out of your mind for 24 hours. It cost me $5000, but I smoked over $1000 worth of Roxys per week, not to mention, some heroin. I just save a ton of $$. For those who need help do it now, God Bless.
P.S you can find their # at http://www.Ibogainesanctuary.com
Tell them Joey sent you

Ibogaine is steadily increasing in usage due to the help it gives addicts, especially those addicted to opiates. There are many places who can treat you with ibogaine; if you can afford it, it is best to do so under the care of a medical doctor and medical team. When you are properly screened and the dosage is determined and administered by a medical doctor, your safety is maximized as well as the curative powers of the ibogaine.

I have 5g of Ibogaine in my draw and I have been a bit scared to take it. I am desperate to get off smack and after 6 years of using and trying to get clean I see this as the last thing left to. I did a lot of LSD in my teens and have some beautiful memories so I have high hopes. I guess I’m scared that the only thing I haven’t tried wont work. Also I don’t want to do it alone but I guess that’s exactly what I need to do.
