Ibogaine misuse continues to gain more attention around the world. The use of this drug, which initially started in West Africa, came to use in the efforts to deal with hunger, thirst, as well as thirst in small doses. This drug, however, in high doses, helped in certain spiritual ceremonies among the community members. Though the drug continues to gain popularity among certain countries, few efforts to provide solution are available, which allows ibogaine to continue the destruction of families and end countless lives.

In these efforts, certain treatment centers continue to help deal with the drug addicts by helping in rehabilitation processes.
What you need to know about Ibogaine and the Iboga Plant
Iboga is a name used to refer to a couple of indigenous plants. The name refers to three main plants including Voacanga, Tabernanthe iboga, and Tabernanthe manii. These three plants, mainly used in West African ceremonies, provide for a spiritual way to initiate young children to their next stages in life. The ceremony includes ingestion of dangerous high dosages of these plants in order to gain certain effects to mark the growth of a young child. The same plant, in smaller dosage, is used in other healing and hunting ceremonies, in conjunction with the laws and regulations of different communities.
The main effect of this psychedelic drug is psychological. This means that there are chances of great misbehavior and significant effects on the activities of the brain. Among these are additional side effects when the drug’s ingestion is in high dosages. Some of the common side effects related to ibogaine include nausea, gastric distress, and intense vomiting. The continued usage of these medicinal plants is highly addictive with addicts deteriorating in health and mental stability as they continue to take in more of it.
Ibogaine, which is the main alkaloid in these three plants, is the main cause of these psychoactive reactions and side effects. The drug dealers who distribute this drug continuously eliminate the other alkaloids to leave the Ibogaine in high dosages. The level of concentration after separation from the other alkaloids is highly dangerous to the human mind and other body functions.
Scientific research towards ibogaine
The initial successful isolation of the ibogaine hydrochloride element was in the 1900s where the element came from the Tabernanthe iboga. The following research focused on studying the effects of this element on the nervous system and the cardiovascular functions of the body.
After these research and studies, substance addiction treatment using ibogaine gained attention in the French community. The research led to the production of a drug aimed at helping mentally disabled people. It also gained a lot attention as an anti-depressant and a stimulant for physical functions, allowing people to work faster and with less fatigue. This is the actual results of the use of Ibogaine in the West African communities.
The initial drug used with the ibogaine hydrochloride element was the lambarene, which finally became illegal due to the increased cases of misbehaviors related to the drug.
Discoveries related to other drugs
Howard S. Lotsof was the first drug-dependent individual to observe and discover the abilities of Ibogaine in interrupting the body’s physical dependency on other substances such as Heroine. When first ingested, the Lotsof noticed how his body lost all dependencies on heroin. The ibogaine hydrochloride component is very efficient and reactive when it comes to this specific use. The effects of a single dosage are highly noticeable. That is why more individuals who are addicted to drugs and other substances carried on these tests trying to figure out the effects when it comes to withdrawal symptoms. Many who are having very difficult time breaking free from their addiction turned to Ibogaine treatment, specifically those who have high dependencies on addictive substances such as cocaine, heroin, and alcohol.
Due to the high rate of successful observation and tests, Lotsof gained approval to use Ibogaine as an effective detox drug, which helped take his studies and research a step further.

But with Ibogaine treatment, withdrawal symptoms are alleviated 30 minutes after taking the first dosage.
Ibogaine therapy promotes psychotherapy.

In this journey, clients can find a greater purpose in life and a stronger spirituality.
