18-MC, a novel iboga alkaloid congener, is being developed as a potential
treatment for multiple forms of drug abuse. Like ibogaine (40 mg/kg), 18-MC
(40 mg/kg) decreases the intravenous self-administration of morphine and
cocaine and the oral self-administration of ethanol and nicotine in rats;
unlike ibogaine, 18-MC does not affect responding for a nondrug reinforcer
(water). Both ibogaine and 18-MC ameliorate opioid withdrawal signs. Both
ibogaine and 18-MC decrease extracellular levels of dopamine in the nucleus
accumbens, but only ibogaine increases extracellular levels of serotonin
in the nucleus accumbens. Both ibogaine and 18-MC block morphine-induced
and nicotine-induced dopamine release in the nucleus accumbens; only ibogaine
enhances cocaine-induced increases in accumbal dopamine. Both ibogaine
and 18-MC enhance the locomotor and/or stereotypic effects of stimulants.
Ibogaine attenuates, but 18-MC potentiates, the acute locomotor effects
of morphine; both compounds
attenuate morphine-induced locomotion in morphine-experienced rats. Ibogaine
produces whole body tremors and, at high doses (=”
src=”http://www.annalsnyas.org/math/ge.gif”
border=0>100 mg/kg), cerebellar damage; 18-MC does not produce these effects.
Ibogaine, but not 18-MC, decreases heart rate at high doses. While 18-MC
and ibogaine have similar affinities for kappa opioid and possibly nicotinic
receptors, 18-MC has much lower affinities than ibogaine for NMDA and sigma-2
receptors, sodium channels, and the 5-HT transporter. Both 18-MC and ibogaine
are sequestered in fat and, like ibogaine, 18-MC probably has an active
metabolite. The data suggest that 18-MC has a narrower spectrum of actions
and will have a substantially greater therapeutic index than ibogaine.

Brett,

According to Glick not a single dose of 18-mc has been administered to a
human subject and according to Mash not a single dose of noribogaine has been
administered to a human subject.  Glick reports lack of neurotoxicity and
cardiovascular effects in animal model for 18-mc.  18-mc is not noribogaine.  I had
thought that Baumann and Mash I reported noribogaine to be less neurotoxic than
ibogaine but, in a brief review I really can’t find the hard data indicating
that.  Possibly, Patrick or someone with science background will comment.
Mash indicates that “ibogaine” is not neurotoxic at therapeutic doses in the
monkey and administers ibogaine and not noribogaine at her treatment facility.  Xu
and Ali with work in part accomplished at an FDA laboratory, the national
center for toxicological research indicate that there is no neurotoxicity of
ibogaine in the rat at therapeutic doses in man, 25mg/kg.

Further on the administration of noribogaine I haven’t seen any published
research indicating that noribogaine is long lasting.  Glick and Hough indicate
that ibogaine is sequestered in fat and released over time rather than
noribogaine being a long lasting metabolite.  The liver converts the released ibogaine
to noribogaine at higher levels than ibogaine.  I do not believe any research
has been published demonstrating the administration of noribogaine is longer
lasting than ibogaine.  My understanding is that Mash indicates that
noribogaine would be administered via a patch that would release it over time.  I have
not seen studies indicating the administration of noribogaine that shows it to
be long lasting.  By the way Glick has identified the primary 18-MC
metabolite as nor 18-MC.

I have taken in excess of a full mg. of lsd (on zero tolerance = > 1 month since the last dose.) I don’t know what is or was considered a ‘therapeutic’ dose but IMO less than 500 mcgs is a “party” dose of lsd. In my experience lsd doesn’t really become “therapeutic” untill you take enough to scare the piss out of yourself. And you never get used to it–at least I never do.

Same thing with mescaline. I’ve taken more than two grams and it is only at the higher ‘heroic doses’ that I feel a sustained long lasting benefit. 500 mg of mescaline is… fun.

I’m not looking for “fun.” The main reason I keep taking these brutal doses of various entheogens is the sustained anti-depressent effect I get in the days and weeks that follow. Believe me, if experience hadn’t already taught me that subjecting myself to such a brutal ordeal would reward me with several weeks of feeling “normal” then I would never put myself through it. No-one in their right mind would take 1 mg.+ of lsd just for the fun of it.

I’ve had a life-long problem with depression. I’ve tried just about every pharmaceutical anti-depresant as well as therapy, yoga, re-birthing, and well… pretty much everything I could think of. So far nothing works like entheogens.

That’s why I’m interested in ibogaine. What I’ve read makes me think that ibo might have a more sustained effect than anything else I’ve ever tried. If I have to do the full ‘initiatory’ dose of ibo once a month for the rest of my life I would be happily willing to do so if that meant I could just feel normal for the rest of the days of the month.

Scott,

The ibogaine doses in the 60s by weight were equivalent to the dose of
mescaline, both at that time considered full therapeutic doses as was the dose of
200mcg of lsd.  As to the 1000mg dose of ibogaine I was projecting a theoretical
dose as I anticipate would be required of current ibogaine manufacturing.
So, in my opinion the matter of actual weight is not as important as that of
dose anticipated to provide full effect. I mean you are not going to take 500mgs
of lsd are you? mgs = milligrams, mcg = micrograms

$2.5 Million Available for Peer-to-Peer Recovery Support Services

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) today
announced  availability of FY 2004 funds for grants to deliver and evaluate
peer-to-peer recovery support services. The Recovery Community Services Program
will help prevent relapse and promote sustained recovery from alcohol and drug
use disorders for people with a history of alcohol and/or drug problems who
are in or seeking recovery, along with family members and significant others
who will be both the providers and recipients of recovery support services.

It is expected that approximately $2.5 million will be available to fund up
to 7 awards.  The annual award amount is expected to be $350,000 for up to 4
years.  The actual award amount may vary, depending on the availability of
funds. The grants will be awarded by SAMHSA’s Center for Substance Abuse Treatment
(CSAT).

WHO CAN APPLY: Eligible applicants are domestic public and private non-profit
entities, including state, local or tribal governments, public or private
universities and colleges, community-and faith–based organizations, and tribal
organizations.  This program is not designed to fund professional services.
Eligible services are those delivered by peers to help prevent relapse and
promote long-term recovery, or to reduce the effects of relapse by providing early
intervention and referral to treatment, where necessary.

HOW TO APPLY:  Application for No. TI 04-008, are available by calling
SAMHSA’s clearinghouse at 1-800-729-6686, or by downloading from the SAMHSA web site

If you mean by how much did ibogaine dominate the experience, I cannot

as

an

ibogaine experience during which I observed the actions of an lsd or

experience.  That would be with 200mcg of lsd or 500mgs of mescaline.

However, in

the 60s for whatever reasons all persons needed only half the amount of

or

200mcg lsd.  500mgs of ibogaine produced effects during the 1960s ibogaine

period that now require 1000mgs of ibogaine.  Anyone that can resolve that

mystery is welcome. Those were my experiences and may be quite distinct
for

The 60s vs 80s/90s/2000 ibogaine experience the dosage issue was across

lol! You’re welcome.

But remember to be careful–the idea is not to take a dose of syrian rue and then a normal dose of mushrooms or mescaline–the idea is to take a dose of syrian rue and then take a much smaller than normal dose of mushrooms or mescaline and thus achieve the same effects with lower toxicity  and lower cost.

Also remember the dietary restrictions. Although harmaline and harmine are very short acting maoi’s there is still some danger. The best bet is not to eat anything starting a couple hours before taking the rue and continuing until at least 4 hours after.

Note: even if you eat a big hunk of cheese while on the harmaline you will probably be fine. Even on pharmaceutical long term maoi’s most people never experienced the ‘tyramine allergy.’ But why take the chance? Why risk getting an agonizing headache which could even possibly lead to death–and particularly why risk going through that while on mushrooms or mescaline? Talk about a ‘bad trip!’

The reason I asked is that harmaline makes psilocybin about three times more potent. This is because psilocybin is partially broken down in the stomach by MAO–a small dose of syrian rue 15-30 minutes before inhibits MAO from breaking it down and thus allows the full amount of alkaloid to enter the bloodstream from the stomach. Also everyone knows that an MAO inhibitor is absolutely necessary to get any effect from oral DMT (Aya).

I’ve also heard from reliable sources that harmaline has a similar effect on mescaline–makes it 2-3 times stronger by preventing MAO from breaking any of it down in the stomach–though I have no experience with that combination.

Thanks Brett,

That is disappointing to hear, but ah well. But I actually wasn’t looking for a way to increase the ibogaine so much as I was looking for a way to decrease the dose and still get the same effects. As you know, the stuffs expensive so it would have been nice if I could have achieved similar effects by taking 1/2 to 1/3 as much. Oh well.

Harmaline will have no such effect on ibogaine. In effect you seem to be looking to increast the amount of ibogaine, this isn’t exactly something you might really want to do. Ibogaine is actually far more toxic than nor-ibogaine, the primary metabolite of ibogaine – which (nutshell) stays bound to receptors (and wherever else it may be) for long periods of time afer dosing. You jack up the ibogaine say by dosing with a bunch of tylenol (or whatever) along with the ibo (and interfere with metabolism), you get more ibogaine floating in your blood, this can be a bad thing. 1 out of 10 people are poor metabolizers of ibgaine, they tend to get awfully hard (one clinic refuses to treat them), fast metabolizers don’t trip as hard but make a bunch of nor-ibogaine quickly. Typically ibogaine is out of the blood in 6 hours from peek (if I recall correctly), or about 8 hours after taking it. This seems to be what is causing the visions and is right in line with the time frame – a WAG on my part of what is happening. Ibogaine trips are NOT FUN, it is after that is fun. So every now and then you get someone TRIPPING on ibogaine for several days, or real TRIPPING – normally it ain’t nothing like a “trip”. I suppose you could take a drug to speed metabolism of ibogaine to nor-ibogaine and reduce the trip some.

Be careful what you mix MAOIs or ibogaine with.

Ah, I see you already answered my question before I even asked!

So, anyway you are talking about smaller relative doses of lsd and mescaline and a larger relative dose of ibogaine.

I think what you said about people needing more ibogaine now than in the 60’s is absolutely fascinating. I’ve got no theory on that, but I have heard that westerners in general are often more tolerant of certain substances than the indigenous people who traditionally used the substance. Studies done on the traditional ayahuasca brews made by the shamans in the amazon showed levels of DMT that I would barely feel, but the natives apparently feel it QUITE strongly. Quite a tantalizing mystery!

If you mean by how much did ibogaine dominate the experience, I cannot
provide a percentage but, only to say that I interpreted the experience as an
ibogaine experience during which I observed the actions of an lsd or mescaline
experience.  That would be with 200mcg of lsd or 500mgs of mescaline.  However, in
the 60s for whatever reasons all persons needed only half the amount of
ibogaine to reach the full therapeutic effect then they to today, across
manufacturer and form (HCl, base, tannate, sulfate).  Therefore the actual experiences I
was talking about were combinations of 500mg ibogaine with 500mgs mescaline or
200mcg lsd.  500mgs of ibogaine produced effects during the 1960s ibogaine
period that now require 1000mgs of ibogaine.  Anyone that can resolve that
mystery is welcome. Those were my experiences and may be quite distinct for others.
The 60s vs 80s/90s/2000 ibogaine experience the dosage issue was across many
individuals and not my response alone.

I’ve never enjoyed harmaline for its own sake, but I know that a small (sub-psychoactive) dose of harmaline strongly potentiates  several other substances because it is an MAO inhibitor. Harmaline (or harmine) is necessary for Aya and I know for certain it makes mushrooms 2-3 times stronger and I’ve heard from reliable sources it similarly potentiates mescaline.

I guess the real question is does MAO in the stomach interfere with ibogaine as it does other tryptamine like substances? If it does then harmaline should strongly potentiate it. If ibogaine is not effected by MAO then harmaline should make no difference.

Harmaline is similar in structure and effect (if there is anything) to ibogaine. Ibogaine however ibogaine is ibogaine, IMO there really isn’t anything to add to it to make it more ibogaine or better ibogaine. You can do harmaline for the harmaline, not to make the ibogaine better or make more ibogaine/cheaper ibogaine. I am not sure “potentiates” is the word I would use, more like mixing 2 similar drugs. What I got when I tried it was strange ibogaine, I didn’t care for it. What I hear when people talk  trying to make the iboga better/cheaper by doing something to it (creative) they almost invariably make it worse. I would STRONGLY suggest nixing that idea till you are experienced with the substance and then very carefully, maybe on a smaller scale to see what happens and not a full-blown iboga trip. Iboga is a hand-full as it is, things can go wrong (like lack of heart beat and breathing), it is extremely long and arduous, I am not sure I would want anyting like potentiating and I don’t think it is necessary or desirable – for me. If anything it is too much, just an enormous amount of information, thoughts and feelings to process. Anyway, no it didn’t “potentiate” it, like I said, strange iboga, it did seem to add to the effect though negatively in my case or that time (I was none too healthy).

mescaline.  With each combination the effect for me was being effected
by
ibogaine watching myself being effected by lsd or mescaline.  just me.
Ibogaine
dominated but, was distinct.

Howard

If you mean by how much did ibogaine dominate the experience, I cannot
provide a percentage but, only to say that I interpreted the experience as an
ibogaine experience during which I observed the actions of an lsd or mescaline
experience.  That would be with 200mcg of lsd or 500mgs of mescaline.  However, in
the 60s for whatever reasons all persons needed only half the amount of
ibogaine to reach the full therapeutic effect then they to today, across
manufacturer and form (HCl, base, tannate, sulfate).  Therefore the actual experiences I
was talking about were combinations of 500mg ibogaine with 500mgs mescaline or
200mcg lsd.  500mgs of ibogaine produced effects during the 1960s ibogaine
period that now require 1000mgs of ibogaine.  Anyone that can resolve that
mystery is welcome. Those were my experiences and may be quite distinct for others.
The 60s vs 80s/90s/2000 ibogaine experience the dosage issue was across many
individuals and not my response alone.

Harmaline is similar in structure and effect (if there is anything) to ibogaine. Ibogaine however ibogaine is ibogaine, IMO there really isn’t anything to add to it to make it more ibogaine or better ibogaine. You can do harmaline for the harmaline, not to make the ibogaine better or make more ibogaine/cheaper ibogaine. I am not sure “potentiates” is the word I would use, more like mixing 2 similar drugs. What I got when I tried it was strange ibogaine, I didn’t care for it. What I hear when people talk  trying to make the iboga better/cheaper by doing something to it (creative) they almost invariably make it worse. I would STRONGLY suggest nixing that idea till you are experienced with the substance and then very carefully, maybe on a smaller scale to see what happens and not a full-blown iboga trip. Iboga is a hand-full as it is, things can go wrong (like lack of heart beat and breathing), it is extremely long and arduous, I am not sure I would want anyting like potentiating and I don’t think it is necessary or desirable – for me. If anything it is too much, just an enormous amount of information, thoughts and feelings to process. Anyway, no it didn’t “potentiate” it, like I said, strange iboga, it did seem to add to the effect though negatively in my case or that time (I was none too healthy).

Actually Callie, I’m taking iboga for psychic/spiritual reasons (I
have addictions, but they’re of an emotional nature)…

Sadly, even with careful preparation, ritual centering, liver
cleansing, and a dose in excess of 30g of rootbark…the effect has
been minimal  🙁

I ingested the mixture approx 6 hours ago, and have had small waves
of
emotional sensation and flashes of memory…along with a noticeable
stiffening of my extremeties.  But I have yet to experience the major
nausea, ear buzzing, or deep internal ‘searching’.

My watcher has kindly suggested 3 possibilities to dampen my
frustrations:

1)  The batch I received was weak…therefore not my fault.
2)  I’m have a natural immunity to this type of poison, since I’ve
been taking good care of myself the last few months (and the liver
cleanse maximized my detoxing capability)
3)  The Bwiti felt that I wasn’t in need of ‘judgment’ at this time –
that I’m ‘where I need to be’ right now

I really don’t want to think of this undertaking as a ‘wasted’
experience…I was so hoping to have some serious revelations and
emotional breakthroughs…I’m trying my best not to be disappointed –
maybe someone out there can tell me a similar story of iboga
frustration???

Much love to all, and thanks for the support

Sh’lach Et Ami! Let My People Go!

During this Passover season as Jews around the globe celebrate their escape from slavery in Egypt, we should take special note that, sadly, slavery is not history, that indeed there are people in bondage, real bondage, on every continent. Every year during this time, Jews retell their exodus from Egypt to remember their own enslavement, and, therefore think of those people who are still in the worst of circumstances.
The commandment of pid’yon shivu’im – of freeing captives – is one of the highest mitzvot in Jewish in law. It is a call for us to rise up against slavery and tyranny in our own time.
Most people don’t know that slavery still exists. But it does. From Khartoum to Calcutta, from Brazil to Bangladesh, men, women, and children live and work as slaves or in slave-like conditions. There are as many as 30 million people in bondage – more than any other point in history.
If, at your seder, you wish to recognize those who remain in bondage, leave an empty chair again this year. And on this holiday when Jews are commanded to relive the bitter experience of slavery, place a fourth matzah with the traditional three and read this prayer written by Rabbi Joel Soffin of Temple Shalom in Succasunna, NJ.
Holding the Fourth Matzah
“We raise this fourth matzah to remind ourselves that slavery still exists, that people are still being bought and sold as property, that the Divine image within them is yet being denied. We make room at our seder table and in our hearts for those in southern Sudan and in Mauritania who are now where we have been.

We have known such treatment in our own history. We have suffered while others stood by and pretended not to see, not to know. We have eaten the bitter herb; we have been taken from our families and brutalized. We have experienced the horror of being forcibly converted. In the end, we have come to know in our very being that none can be free until all are free.
And so, we commit and recommit ourselves to work for the freedom of these people. May the taste of this ‘bread of affliction’ remain in our mouths until they can eat in peace and security. Knowing that all people are Yours, O G-d, we will urge our government and all governments to do as You once commanded Pharaoh on our behalf: ‘Shalach et Ami! Let MY People Go!’

“By how much?”

That’s a new way of thinking, Hum… There are ways to find that out.
But it is an individual test for each person.

The use of Syrian rue can be helpful after Ibo.
For some psychological side effects. It can give a happy high and extra
energy in a very natural way,M mushrooms can do that too as well as Aya.
And probably plenty of other plants.

Ibo.
Dominates. It’s the tree of life and knowledge.
For that reason save the rainforests.

Banning tryptophan because of one bad batch from Japan makes about as much sense as it would make to ban apple juice because of what happened at Odwalla, or to ban all beef products because of past e-coli incidents or because of mad-cow disease.  I think the FDA saw an opportunity to ban a natural supplement that competes with expensive pharmaceuticals and took that opportunity out of loyalty to the pharmaceutical companies.

To All,
This effects more people then you would think.  Weither or not Marc wanted to be arrested, I don’t know, I don’t know his motives or any of that.

What I do know is nobody on this list was willing to do ANYTHING for me before I met Marc and he did treated me FOR FREE (paging Dr. Mash) which nobody on this list would have nor will they do.

But I’m sure that you all have moral authority and high ground on this issue.

The more important thing to me is if money that would have gone to help people at the ibogatherapyhouse now has to be reallocated to legal fees…again who knows.  Sometimes I think I’m the most selfish person in the world, then I read this list and feel much better.

understand what is the difference between this arrest
and all his other arrests? Doesn’t it just mean that
he’ll have more chances to talk to the press? Isn’t
that what all of this is about in the first place??
He’s arrested again for something to do with pot,
which is what Marc is always arrested for. It’s not
like he held up someone with a gun or is facing
charges that are any different then the ones he is
usually arrested for.

‘Marc Emery arrested for pot! For the 100th time!’
Maybe Marc should get a award? 😉

Marc if you’re reading this, love to you! Think what
you do is great and I’ll cc that to that huge list
too! Why not!

Forgive me if this is somehow serious and I’m having a
hard time taking it seriously!

Callie very sorry to hear about your insurance! I

I don’t mean to sound insensitive which is what

have the tendency to
think of a group of people on this list as these
cool maniacs who do
crazy things, Marc is for sure in that category with
Patrick, Preston,
Dave Hunter, all the rest. I forget sometimes or a
lot of the time that
there are people behind all that.

Let me ask what I mean to say, is this a big deal or
something? I mean
doesn’t Marc get himself arrested 5 or 10 times a
year, mostly on
purpose? When he is arrested I have the idea that
there are always a
army of lawyers and at least a few camera crews
there too.

Is this bust somehow different?

Not being obnoxious, only curious. Is this serious
in some special way
that makes it different then the last 5 times Marc
got busted?

mind you, I’ve only had one ibo experience, so my description can only account for that, which isn’t really a well designed comparison. It’s just been my experience so far and on that note, it isn’t really much of a description for an experience that has affected me as profoundly as it has.

and to be honest, i really didn’t feel so much scolded as i was directly guided to looking at some deeper issues that i needed to focus on and understand. ibo seemed to also have a cryptic, symbolic language that takes time to integrate and so does aya but the way they represent themselves in my experience seem different somehow.

– visions were different (ibo more like vivid dreams and aya more patterned, geometric and futuristic)

– body sensations were different (ibo felt slightly out of bodied & flowing, aya  more electrified and travelling through various circuits in the body like lightpulses)

– sounds very acute and crystalline on ibo, on aya more acute on the internal dialogue level, but i also had the pleasure of having beautiful music played and sung (icaros during the aya) on both journeys that made the whole experience very grounding and guided by it, in a sense.

in short, you’re right: everybody is different

and all experience is valid.

This is fascinating that both you and Steven experience Aya as more ‘maternal’ because that’s not how I experience Aya, but maybe I  should mention I’ve never done the actual Cappi vine,  I’ve only done analogs with Syrian Rue (extract of 2-3 grams) and Jurema Preta (extract of 8+ grams.) (I’m about 140 lbs.)

But I have noticed that on 5 grams of Jurema it is much more “warm and fuzzy–” about like 2 grams of very good mushrooms or a couple hundred mcgs. of lsd, only of course very different in it’s ‘charector.’ On a lower dose it can feel very ‘maternal,’ but unfortunately I’ve never found lower doses to be of that much benefit (maybe I don’t need mothering?).

On 8+ grams of Jurema the experience could well be described as big daddy in the sky grabbing you by the scruff of the neck and shaking you violently for six hours while lecturing you on things that… just make a WHOLE lot of sense. At least that’s my experience, and I know everyone is different.

Is a lower dose of Ibo more maternal, or is it always paternal?

When on aya, I asked her about my work with iboga and she said to me: ‘yes, i know iboga’ and showed me this vision of a caricature which popped up out of a cylindrical portal kinda dealio looking much like a smiley carved wooden voodoo doll that was very distinctly different from any other aya vision/landscape that surrounded it. It made me laugh pretty hard actually, as I had always had a heavy sense about Iboga and it helped me to lighten this up a little. The sense I got was that aya and ibo are old friends, they just work in different ways.

I agree with the mama’s embrace/papa’s schoolin’ comparison.

Both had beautiful things to show me and were very good at also scolding me for the things I needed to look at or do. Just in different ways…

USA: METHADONE TURNS 40

This year marks an important milestone in
methadone treatment history. Forty years
ago, Drs. Nyswander and Dole initiated methadone studies with 22 “subjects” on a closed research unit at Rockefeller University. Today there are an estimated half-million patients treated with this medication in almost 50 countries around the world (see below), and many tens of thousands more being treated with other opiate agonists.

———————————————–
NEWS FROM AROUND THE WORLD:
———————————————–

METHADONE AVAILABLE FOR OPIATE DEPENDENCE TREATMENT IN 47 COUNTRIES, according to a report by INDRO e.V. Deputy Director Ralf Gerlach, Muenster, Germany. This website welcomes corrections, additions, deletions that readers feel should be made to this compilation.  For the report,

NETHERLANDS: CONSERVATIVE CDA GOVERNMENT
SUPPORTS EXPANSION OF “FREE HEROIN PROGRAM”

The Rotterdam newspaper De Volksrant of March 5, 2004, reports that the Dutch parliament has voted not only to continue, but to markedly expand (from 300-1,000) the two-year pilot program providing free heroin to users. The director of the program, Dr. Wim Van den Brink, cited major improvements in physical and mental health of participants, as well as a sharp drop in criminal activities. For more information:
http://stopthedrugwar.org/chronicle/328/heroin.shtml

SCOTLAND: GLASGOW FACES CRISIS
IN METHADONE SERVICE

BBC reports (March 26) that a proposal to rely on “programs” rather than GPs for methadone treatment threatens the continued care of “huge numbers” and a resultant crime wave. Currently some 5000 of the 6000 patients receiving methadone in Glasgow receive their care from GPs in their private offices. For full story : http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/scotland/3570073.stm

MALAYSIA: GOVERNMENT BEGINS OPIATE
SUBSTITUTION TREATMENT

In recognition of the high risks of relapse and the spread of bloodborne diseases among injecting opiate addicts returning to the community from prison, the Malaysian government has agreed to provide methadone maintenance treatment to ex-offenders in a
community-based setting. For more information:
http://opiateaddictionrx.info/whatsnew.asp?id=541

USA: FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ISSUES
STATEMENT: “Methadone Deaths Not Linked to
Misuse of Methadone from Treatment Programs”  The conclusions reached in May, 2003, by an expert panel convened by the key government agency responsible for drugs were finally released in February, 2004. Bottom line: when it comes to diverted methadone contributing to overdose deaths, maintenance patients treated for opioid dependence “are not the culprits.” In the interim, increasing controls (e.g., on take-home “privileges”) were implemented that affect a great many patients;  nothing suggests that those steps, taken in response to what is now considered a non-problem, will be reversed.

For the official statement accompanying release of the panel’s findings:
http://www.samhsa.gov/news/newsreleases/040206nr_deaths.htm

NORWAY: UPDATE – STILL NOT GOOD!

Opiate dependent Norwegians desperately
seeking methadone maintenance continue
to face waiting periods of 1-2 years. Those who undertook the travel to neighboring Denmark in search of care are now facing the elimination of that option as well. For more information:

Thanks Howard,

It was precisely thru newsgroups that i first discovered ibogaine, while
surfing the alt.hard.drugs news groups, loaded out of my gourd. it took
me a week of seeing the link before i actually clicked on it and opened
my life to this brave new whirled that i live in.

life will never be the same and it is all Howards fault. :^)

mind you, I’ve only had one ibo experience, so my description can only account for that, which isn’t really a well designed comparison. It’s just been my experience so far and on that note, it isn’t really much of a description for an experience that has affected me as profoundly as it has.

and to be honest, i really didn’t feel so much scolded as i was directly guided to looking at some deeper issues that i needed to focus on and understand. ibo seemed to also have a cryptic, symbolic language that takes time to integrate and so does aya but the way they represent themselves in my experience seem different somehow.

– visions were different (ibo more like vivid dreams and aya more patterned, geometric and futuristic)

– body sensations were different (ibo felt slightly out of bodied & flowing, aya  more electrified and travelling through various circuits in the body like lightpulses)

– sounds very acute and crystalline on ibo, on aya more acute on the internal dialogue level, but i also had the pleasure of having beautiful music played and sung (icaros during the aya) on both journeys that made the whole experience very grounding and guided by it, in a sense.

in short, you’re right: everybody is different

and all experience is valid.

This is fascinating that both you and Steven experience Aya as more ‘maternal’ because that’s not how I experience Aya, but maybe I  should mention I’ve never done the actual Cappi vine,  I’ve only done analogs with Syrian Rue (extract of 2-3 grams) and Jurema Preta (extract of 8+ grams.) (I’m about 140 lbs.)

But I have noticed that on 5 grams of Jurema it is much more “warm and fuzzy–” about like 2 grams of very good mushrooms or a couple hundred mcgs. of lsd, only of course very different in it’s ‘charector.’ On a lower dose it can feel very ‘maternal,’ but unfortunately I’ve never found lower doses to be of that much benefit (maybe I don’t need mothering?).

On 8+ grams of Jurema the experience could well be described as big daddy in the sky grabbing you by the scruff of the neck and shaking you violently for six hours while lecturing you on things that… just make a WHOLE lot of sense. At least that’s my experience, and I know everyone is different.

Is a lower dose of Ibo more maternal, or is it always paternal?

When on aya, I asked her about my work with iboga and she said to me: ‘yes, i know iboga’ and showed me this vision of a caricature which popped up out of a cylindrical portal kinda dealio looking much like a smiley carved wooden voodoo doll that was very distinctly different from any other aya vision/landscape that surrounded it. It made me laugh pretty hard actually, as I had always had a heavy sense about Iboga and it helped me to lighten this up a little. The sense I got was that aya and ibo are old friends, they just work in different ways.

I agree with the mama’s embrace/papa’s schoolin’ comparison.

Both had beautiful things to show me and were very good at also scolding me for the things I needed to look at or do. Just in different ways…

Hi all,
I watched Kerry’s June 1971 debate with John O’Neill on the old Dick
Cavett show last night on C-Span and was really depressed to think that this
eloquent, sincere, nice sounding man turned around years later and voted
“yes” for the war on Iraq, to the extent that he’s today saying how we
cannot simply “get out” of Iraq since we’re there now and must stay the
course. How sad that someone who seemingly saw things so clearly in 1971 is
now not seeing things so clearly at all, or so it appears to me.
Peace,
Preston

Hello Brooke,
I’m The webmaster of AfricaPhyto International: www.vegetaux.com, we’re a
selling real Tabernanthe Iboga Rootbark, we harvest it in the cameroonian
rainforest. We harvest our plants ourself and the one we buy from the
villagers are bought only with fruits and leaves because we want to be sure
it is Iboga. There are a lot of swindlers on this market. I know from who
most of the websites get there Iboga and this is not a good source. We might
be expensive but this is because we are selling quality. We opened for a
month and we don’t have a name yet, but I’m sure the quality we have will
speak for itself.

The data is mixed and not well organized.  Some individuals appear to cease
visualizing after 4 or 5 ibogaine administrations and if we can believe
reports, others do not.  What is needed is an organized study of no less than one
hundred patients to be dosed seven
times at full therapeutic doses and to have their pharmacokinetic levels
tracked and reports on visualization monitored.  If running the hundred individu
als is not conclusive we may have to run 500 subjects.  Possibly, 500 opioid
dependent subjects and 500 non-dependent controls.

Howard

It seems that if ibogaine allows a person to work through and process lifes traumas that there should be, theoretically at least,  an end to visions as there must indeed be a finite amount of material to deal with.

I did a fair bit of lsd years ago and I have always had a very visual experience with ibogaine.
For me there seemed to be an increasing amount of visions of childhood memories and my
family in each experience.  Only in my first experience I didn’t experience any visions that
had deep relevance to my emotionaly or spiritual being, at least that’s how it seemed to
me.  There wasn’t really any emotional content, though I think that we probably guide
ourselves unconsiously to some extent to allow ourselves see what we feel ready for.  I
felt quite dissapointed in myself at the time because I think I panicked a bit and fought
against whatever was to appear.

I seem to remember noting, once before, that people who’d done a lot of
other tryptamines, notably lsd, seemed more likely to get visuals with
ibogaine. I haven’t done acid in 20 years and rarely got any full visuals
with ibo. My brother did a lot, he had visuals.

The only time I got visuals was in Africa after taking a massive initiatory
dose. I was out of it for 6 + days, unaware of who I was, and roughly half
of the time was spent in varying different dreamstates. At the time I took
them as reality as I had lost my recollection of this reality, so had
nothing to refer to and thus call them dreamstates. What struck me later,
when I came down, was that the dreams had taken me away from where I was
emotionally. I’d hit all the usual anxiety coming up in the back of the
temple and then when the full effect really hit me (I was eating rootbark
slowly to start with and then took some big doses of “automatique”) it was
too much and I just got spun out somewhere else for a week.

So, my interpretation of my own experience was that the visual states, for
me, actually took me away from re-experiencing emotions and trauma, they
were a kind of protection.

A.A. taught me to stick with the winners.  It seems to me that this list has a lot of winners on it.  I have read this list for three months before I made a post in the hopes that I wouldn’t say something disrespectful or out of line.  It seems that I have done
both.  I apologize if something I said was taken as disrespectful.  I need as much
help as I can get and I don’t want to ostracize myself from obviously intelligent people
who have the facts and experience I need to get King Kong off of my back.

I am a 46 year old man who is egotistical with an inferiority complex.  ’bout as fucked
up as it gets, emotionally.  You know that a higher power gave the world Bill W. and
the big book.  A higher power also gave us Howard Lotsof and the Ibogaine that he
brought with him to give to people who need it.  I see big parallels between the two
and I hold them in the highest regard.

I think we hit a nerve

Question: What is CN8, a broadcast station, cable, what?  I see it is part
of The Comcast Network which is received (how?) in Mid-Atlantic and New
England states as shown at http://www.cn8.tv/

Yes, there is supposed to be a real dust up debate on medical cannabis on
the Lynn Doyle show Monday evening at 9 PM Eastern. Their senior producer
wrote our team: “we have already promoted it and will only change if there
is some extreme breaking news.”

Yesterday I started working with our team, the good guys, for this debate,
making sure they knew where all the good short answers were so they could
print them out and be ready, and letting them know what to read about the
bad guys, so our team could be ready for the bad guys.

Our team:

Jim Miller – http://www.mapinc.org/people/Jim+Miller

Philippe Lucas – http://www.mapinc.org/people/Philippe+Lucas

The bad prohibitionist team:

Terry Farley, First Asst Prosecutor, Ocean County, NJ and Director of the
Ocean Co. Narcotics Strike Force and attorney David Evans, Counsel For the
Legal Foundation Against Illegal Drugs.

I will be sending out a note about the show to other appropriate lists
Sunday.

Here is what I sent in way of background materials to our team:

————–

I am unsure if Farley and Jim Miller have actually met, but they sure have
battled it out in the media.

Here are six LTEs and an OPED that clearly spell out what a prohibitionist
Farley is, and should give you a good view of the position he will take.

http://www.mapinc.org/author/Terrence+Farley

David Evens, like Farley, makes his living supporting prohibition. In the
OPED “High Court Was Right To Nix Medicinal Pot” the paper’s note reads:

Note: David G. Evans, counsel for the Legal Foundation Against Illegal
Drugs, submitted a brief on behalf of 50 individuals and drug prevention
organizations in the Supreme Court case. He grew up in Bergen County and
practices in Pittstown, N.J.

His writings are the first seven at:

http://www.mapinc.org/author/David+Evans

His Legal Foundation does not have a website, but guess what, he is also:

David G. Evans, Esq., Executive Director, Drug-free Schools Coalition

Read This! http://drugandhealthinfo.org/page03.php?ID=60

and http://www.estreet.com/orgs/dsi/Editorials/DrugTestinginSchools.html

The extreme lack of material on the web about either Evans organizations –
and no web sites – leads me to suspect they are largely smoke and mirror
groups with little real substance (not MAP like, for sure).

Since Feburary of 1984 the ABA position has been:

Marijuana. Support federal legislation to remove prohibitions against the
treatment of patients with marijuana under the supervision of a physician
with controls adequate to prevent improper use. 2/84

See page 49 of their positions document at
http://www.abanet.org/poladv/legiss.pdf In general their position on drugs
has been to support treatment over punishment for users but it is fair to
say they have not supported marijuana decrim as a specific policy. Their
medical cannabis position is really their strongest position on the
cannabis issue.

I have always found this list “Organizations Supporting Access to
Therapeutic Cannabis” useful. You may want to print it out and highlight
for quick reference the organizations who’s positions are most telling
http://www.medicalcannabis.com/PDF/Grouplist.pdf

I also consider these two pages must reads for anyone going to debate
medical cannabis in the US because they contain quick facts:

http://www.drugwarfacts.org/medicalm.htm

http://www.drugwardistortions.org/distortion9.htm

All I can think of right now. I hope this helps.

Richard

——————

Any other suggestions of reading material I could pass along to our side?

Oh, I hope we get at least a couple of folks to make good sharp VHS copies
of the show so they can be sent to the person who is ready to process it
for the web so we all can see it.

Richard

At 10:32 PM 3/26/04, Libby wrote
I just saw an ad for a Lynn Doyle show on CN8 on
medicinal marijuana that said, Medmj, canadian
pharmacies will be dispensing it, could it happen
here, some medical society says YES.

It’s the middle of all these Law and Order reruns that
I have running for white noise. 10;30 on a Friday
night is pretty good placement.

Is it me, or did we really bring med mar into the
political discourse in this election? I think we are
making a difference. By November I hope neither
candidate will be able to ignore it.

Methadone deaths in western Va. occur at twice the rate of New York City
By the Associated Press
March 28, 2004
from the Hampton Roads Daily Press at

http://www.dailypress.com/news/local/virginia/dp-va–fataloverdoses0328mar28,0,3081638.story?coll=dp-headlines-virginia

Methadone deaths in western Va. occur at twice the rate of New York City

ROANOKE, Va. — There were 85 deaths from methadone overdoses in western
Virginia last year–a per-capita rate that is at least twice the rate
for New York City, according to state crime lab figures.

Deaths from the prescription drug, developed during World War II as an
alternative to morphine, have increased by 600 percent in the region in
the past five years.

Fatal overdoses from other prescription drugs have also risen sharply,
said Dr. William Massello of the state Medical Examiner’s Office for
Western Virginia.

Last year, there were 213 drug deaths in the western half of the state.

“My God, that’s three-and-a-half times what we used to have just eight
years ago,” Massello said.

Fatal overdoses were up last year in four categories of opium-based
prescription drugs. In addition to the methadone deaths, 47 involved
hydrocodone, 44 ocycodone and 21 fentanyl.

Of all the drugs abused in the Roanoke Valley, methadone is perhaps the
most controversial.

A proposed methadone clinic in Northwest Roanoke has generated
widespread opposition from residents who fear it will bring crime to
their neighborhood. A similar proposal in Southwest Roanoke County was
withdrawn in the face of ardent community resistance.

Opponents worry that methadone will be sold on the street. However,
police and medical examiners say virtually all of the methadone
overdoses involved the pill or wafer form of the drug, which is
prescribed by doctors as a painkiller, and not the liquid form, which is
dispensed by the clinics.

As fatal overdoses from prescription drugs have risen sharply in western
Virginia, so has the amount of painkillers prescribed by the region’s
doctors.

From 1998 to 2002, when methadone deaths went from six to 62, the
volume of the drug prescribed increased by 500 percent, according to
Drug Enforcement Administration figures. The figure does not include the
liquid form of the drug.

Oxycodone prescriptions for the region increased by about 210 percent
from 1998 to 2000. Prescriptions of hydrocodone increased by 107 percent
over five years.

Actually Callie, I’m taking iboga for psychic/spiritual reasons (I
have addictions, but they’re of an emotional nature)…

Sadly, even with careful preparation, ritual centering, liver
cleansing, and a dose in excess of 30g of rootbark…the effect has
been minimal  🙁

I ingested the mixture approx 6 hours ago, and have had small waves of
emotional sensation and flashes of memory…along with a noticeable
stiffening of my extremeties.  But I have yet to experience the major
nausea, ear buzzing, or deep internal ‘searching’.

My watcher has kindly suggested 3 possibilities to dampen my
frustrations:

1)  The batch I received was weak…therefore not my fault.
2)  I’m have a natural immunity to this type of poison, since I’ve
been taking good care of myself the last few months (and the liver
cleanse maximized my detoxing capability)
3)  The Bwiti felt that I wasn’t in need of ‘judgment’ at this time –
that I’m ‘where I need to be’ right now

I really don’t want to think of this undertaking as a ‘wasted’
experience…I was so hoping to have some serious revelations and
emotional breakthroughs…I’m trying my best not to be disappointed –
maybe someone out there can tell me a similar story of iboga
frustration???

Much love to all, and thanks for the support

It seems that alot of people are having fun with Ibogaine. For me, this
is

reply
from some of the Iboga houses I have tried to get a hold of! Would it
help
if I
had Hundred dollar bills to throw at them? Well I’m not rich, just a
junkie
needing some serious help. This is my first post. I would appretiate any

that I can get from anyone.

Thanx,

Hi Randy,

Well the first thing you need is some fucking respect. You’re not rich
because you don’t want to be rich. You’re a junkie because you want to be a
junkie. Accepting where you are might be nice. No one OWES you an iboga
session, least of all the plant itself.

I like it that you ask for help. That’s a good start.

Brooke, where did you get the iboga from? It’s good to say because if it’s not good enough, and a lot out there isn’t, this info will help the general iboga community locate a good source of rootbark, something that’s been difficult for years. I’m not advocating “Name ’em and Shame ’em” merely trying to raise awareness. It’s a serious drag not being able to get good quality material.

Yes, “sadly”. This is  the main reason I would rather see people with an extract such as Indra or HCL, it is a known quantity. Getting quality root bark west of the Atlantic is about as likely as getting premium tea in a Lipton bag, or so it seems. It is bad enough for those seeling psychic/spiritual reasons but should not be sold or used for addiction treatment by do it yourselfers – IMO the merchant should be able to tell someone the iboga is X, XX or XXX quality, that a given amount (say 30 gms for XXX) will generally put someone over the treetops – and should equal roughly a gm of HCL in strength or 5-6gms of Indra if it is XXX quality.

No Brooke, it wasn’t wasted. You did learn a few things and get through anxiety over it, less to get through for next time…

iboga is even more ?

Hi Randy and welcome to the ibogaine list! I don’t
think the word “fun” is anything near the right word
to describe ibogaine. I wouldn’t say anyone is doing
it for fun, but there are lots of other reasons to use
ibogaine besides only drug addiction. A lot of the
people here used it for addictions and use it at other
times for spiritual insight or to be reminded of what
it is that got them clean!

I’m sure throwing hundred dollar bills at anyone would
get their attention! I don’t think it’s needed to get
treatment though. What is needed as far as I can see
is to fill out the forms, get medicals and sign up.
Complaining about it doesn’t look like it helps much!
To be honest it’s a lot easier to accept everything
now when I’ve been clean for a much longer time. It’s
not like anyone gave me heroin, methodone or anything
else either. Same effort that went into all of that,
needs to go into getting clean!

Brooke, I am so sorry your night did not go as you hoped. Also sorry that I called you a practicing junkie! As soon as I read your post I remembered your stated reasons for the Ibogaine.
I truly believe “nothing, absolutely nothing happens in God’s world by mistake” (AA Big Book How It Works. lol! One of the few statements from 12 step material that did have impact on me!)
I feel it was not meant to be last night, for whatever reason.
Glad to see you are taking your disappointment so well! At least you have a few days off work to enjoy! ;>)

The last time I took a major dose I had no visuals/visions/dreams. That was the only time that happened, the only time I got sick, the only time I had no addictions to fight off, no major demons left..It was more than I needed to take and felt like it shut down, a black velvet curtain was pulled. That was a while ago now, prior to that have always had visions of some sort starting at 3 gms of Indra or 10mg/kg, lots of times. For the future, I don’t know, I do know some lessons were learned, some I still struggle with so maybe next time.

Randy,

Welcome! Plenty of former junkies here who can help you out. Some entertaining nut-cases as well.

It’s actually not ‘fun.’  It’s an ass whooper. I was so excited to be tripping and BAM “YOU STUPID FUCK!”

Get in touch with all the providers. Somewhere around there is a list of them all. Take into account travel costs. Most of them have sliding scales and are here to help you. Negotiate. We all know that Ibogaine Therapy House is free, but there can be a wait. Figure in the cost of doing smack for few months while waiting. Call all of them – don’t be afraid to talk price. It’s the medicine which is strong. Certain providers have various strengths and are better suited to various personalities, but keep in mind that this very powerful medicine – it will work the same. Some places provide extract and some ibogaine hcl – research the difference.

Have a plan in place for after. If you do nothing different and go back to the same old same old, chances are the Dark Master will visit again. Read this for help after the ibogaine: http://ibogaine.mindvox.com/KeepingClean.html
I’ve come to think of iboga as this great gift given to us, junkies in particular. You have a few months after the iboga to really do some serious changes and get your shit together, be thankful for this gift and repay in goodness.

We will all be rooting for you, let us know what happens.

Kick ass dude!

Steve Anker.

Reply-To: ibogaine@mindvox.com

Hello all–

I am wondering if there is anyone on this list who is experienced with both ayahuasca and iboga? If so, I am curious as to what are the similarities and differences.

I am very experienced with ayahuasca, but not iboga. I have read many ‘trip reports’ on iboga and already know some of the obvious differences–obviously iboga is a much longer experience, but I am particularly interested in hearing a comparison form someone who has significant experience with large doses of both.

Thanks,
Scott

MYTHS ABOUT MEDICAL MARIJUANA

THE RHODE ISLAND General Assembly is now considering legislation to
permit the medical use of marijuana by seriously ill patients whose
physicians have recommended it.

This sensible, humane bill deserves swift passage. The evidence is
overwhelming that marijuana can relieve certain types of pain, nausea,
vomiting and other symptoms caused by such illnesses as multiple
sclerosis, cancer and AIDS — or by the harsh drugs sometimes used to
treat them. And it can do so with remarkable safety. Indeed, marijuana
is less toxic than many of the drugs that physicians prescribe every
day.

But right now, Rhode Island law subjects seriously ill patients to the
threat of arrest and jail for simply trying to relieve some of their
misery. There is no good reason that sick people should face such treatment.

Still, foes of the medical-marijuana bill keep raising objections. So
let’s look at their arguments, one by one:

“There is no evidence that marijuana is a medicine.” The truth: The
medical literature on marijuana goes back 5,000 years. In a 1999 study
commissioned by the White House, the Institute of Medicine reported,
“nausea, appetite loss, pain and anxiety . . . all can be mitigated by
marijuana.” In its April 2003 issue, the British medical journal The
Lancet reported that marijuana relieves pain in virtually every test
that scientists use to measure pain relief.

“The medical community doesn’t support this; just a bunch of drug
legalizers do.” The truth: Numerous medical and public-health
organizations support legal access to medical marijuana. National
groups include the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American
Public Health Association and the American Nurses Association.
Regional groups include the New York State Association of County
Health Officials, the California Medical Association and the Rhode
Island Medical Society.

I know of no medical group that believes that jailing sick and dying
people is good for them.

“Marijuana is too dangerous to be medicine; it’s bad for the immune
system, endangering AIDS and cancer patients.” The truth: Unlike many
of the drugs we prescribe every day, marijuana has never been proven
to cause a fatal overdose. Research on AIDS patients has debunked the
claim of harm to the immune system: In a study at San Francisco
General Hospital, AIDS patients using medical marijuana gained
immune-system cells and kept their virus under control as well as
patients who received a placebo. They also gained more needed weight.

“There are other drugs that work as well as marijuana, including
Marinol, the pill containing THC (the main psychoactive chemical in
marijuana).” The truth: These other drugs don’t work for everyone. The
Institute of Medicine noted: “It is well recognized that Marinol’s
oral route of administration hampers its effectiveness, because of
slow absorption and patients’ desire for more control over dosing.”
Inhalation gives a more rapid response and better results. For some
very sick people, marijuana simply works better.

“Smoke is not medicine; no real medicine is smoked.” The truth:
Marijuana does not need to be smoked. Some patients prefer to eat it,
while those who need the fast action and dose control provided by
inhalation can avoid the hazards of smoke through simple devices
called vaporizers. For many who need only a small amount — such as
cancer patients trying to get through a few months of chemotherapy —
the risks of smoking are minor.

“Medical-marijuana laws send the wrong message to kids, encouraging
teen marijuana use.” The truth: That fear, raised in 1996, when
California passed the first effective medical-marijuana law, has not
come true. According to the official California Student Survey, teen
marijuana use in California rose steadily from 1990 to 1996, but began
falling immediately after the medical-marijuana law was passed. Among
ninth graders, marijuana use in the last six months fell by more than
40 percent from 1995-96 to 2001-02 (the most recent available figures).

It is simply wrong for the sick and suffering to be casualties in the
war on drugs. Let’s get rid of the myths and institute sound
public-health policy. The Rhode Island General Assembly should pass
the medical-marijuana bill immediately.

I seem to remember noting, once before, that people who’d done a lot of
other tryptamines, notably lsd, seemed more likely to get visuals with
ibogaine. I haven’t done acid in 20 years and rarely got any full visuals
with ibo. My brother did a lot, he had visuals.

The only time I got visuals was in Africa after taking a massive initiatory
dose. I was out of it for 6 + days, unaware of who I was, and roughly half
of the time was spent in varying different dreamstates. At the time I took
them as reality as I had lost my recollection of this reality, so had
nothing to refer to and thus call them dreamstates. What struck me later,
when I came down, was that the dreams had taken me away from where I was
emotionally. I’d hit all the usual anxiety coming up in the back of the
temple and then when the full effect really hit me (I was eating rootbark
slowly to start with and then took some big doses of “automatique”) it was
too much and I just got spun out somewhere else for a week.

So, my interpretation of my own experience was that the visual states, for
me, actually took me away from re-experiencing emotions and trauma, they
were a kind of protection.

Nick

This is gonna be one of the shortest messages I’ve ever written; gotta
bounce, but just wanted to set this down prior to having procmail
automagically disappear this thread into my ibogaine list mailbox, and
then  spacing it.

I’ve done “therapeutic” doses of ibogaine 8 times in the last 4.5 years
(i.e., I’m not countin’ bioassays and eXperiments with dose ranges below
the 10mg/kg threshold).  Last 6 times were not for drug dependence.  Still
gettin’ visuals.  Richer than before if anything.  <Shrug>  6 tr1pS on
HCl, 2 on Carl’s extract — the “Indra” materials — highest I’ve gone so
far is 22mg/kg of HCl.

Hi Howard,

They only seem to come up for me when I’m on ibogaine. The notion that I
might be the only person in the world is hard to get into when I’m around
people so much in my daily life. It only comes up when I go “further back
down the pipe”, so to speak, on ibogaine – before the first beat of the
Bwiti’s mobakaka.

I had to hang out with enlightened people and do satsang to understand where
it comes from and thus lessen my fear. What I learned from them was that the
mind only learns to identify with the body, the feelings and thoughts at the
age of around 1 year. Prior to this there’s no distinction – existence is
simply a big Wow with no concept of this being “me” and this being “not me.”
As the “I thought” commences though, at about 12 months, so there arrives
self-conscious awareness in which the mind believes that this body is “me,”
and that these thoughts and feelings are “mine.” And in this state of
identification the overwhelming majority of the world’s population continue
to exist.

At some point the process of identifying starts to unravel though, in some
people, and the core assumptions that the mind made from the age of 1 begin
to be challenged. This wasn’t really happening for me until I took iboga
back in early ’99. When the drug started to try and take me back to the
bornless state of blissful pre-existence so suddenly I was overwhelmed with
fear because the notion that there was no “I” was so alien to me. My mind
(the mind) had been merrily defending it’s core assumption – that it has
personal identity – from apparently hostile attacks for decades, so to be
suddenly confronted with the reality that the thing it had been defending so
well for so long didn’t actually exist of course brought up much fear.

To the Bwiti it’s about the three guys who bang the obaka – the big wooden
stick placed horizontally in the temple. They have to do it all at exactly
the same time or things are a bit fucked up. The sound of the bang is called
the mobakaka and it symbolizes the beginning of creation (see
http://www.iboga.org/us/einganga.htm for good info). If they hit it a bit
off there will be a lot of fear when you are called back to the bornless
state (this in the great ceremony where you are called into being not in the
initiation ritual though of course it’s also important there.)

Next time I do iboga, probably at Beltane in early May, I’ll have a
therapist friend of mine with me to try and guide me through this fear.
Maybe then I’ll be free of the effects of a discordant mobakaka and I can
hang out properly in dissumba a little.

Nick

Bro, I’m not sure if you count! You also have hppd ‘hallucinogen persisting

http://www.stormloader.com/hppd/causes.htm

There are too many quotes from you, Mash, others, to list out but the
one of yours that I remember is ‘it’s been a lot of years since i’ve
seen a white wall or a dark room’. You followed up ibogaine by eating
a sheet of lsd in thailand. Doing 10MG of LSD has to be one of the highest
doses anyone has ever done. That is 100 times a regular dose. If you
ever were, you don’t exactly count as being a normal human being anymore

I’m on ibo 3 HCL, highest so far is 16mg. kg. I’m still tripping too.
Know a few people in the bay area who are well past ibo number 10 and
nobody has said they’ve stopped having visuals though I think everyone
has had one of the ibogaine dark trips where they don’t see anything
at all but everyone who has done it again after that once or twice has
gone back to tripping.

Would be interesting to know what causes the no visuals and then makes
them come back in the same person 🙂

Peace out,
Curtis

Brooke, man, you’ve been sold duff gear. With good quality rootbark you get
around 4% ibogaine base + the other iboga alkaloids. You can get buzzing in
the ears with a dose as low as 3g. To get nothing at 30g, well the stuff
just has to be crap, possibly very old iboga root not rootbark. I’d be
disappointed as hell.

About natural immunity, I haven’t heard of that before. An old friend of
mine, “Undertaker” Chris, took 600mg of tested ibogaine HCl once and said he
experienced nothing. He was a state registered narcoleptic who basically
lived in a dreamstate, so I figured this ruled him out as a normal subject.
About the Bwiti, they’re here to help. If you knock on the door, they’ll
answer.

No, you’ve been sold stuff that doesn’t work, assuming the extraction went
ok. Who did you get it from?

Commiserations

Hey Brooke,

Sorry to hear that… it happened to me too and consequently to friends of
mine as well..

I would however rule out possibilities 2 and 3, since everything you did,
your investment,
should have payed off big-time, not the other way round. And there aren’t
really any accounts
of people taking verified doses and being left on the tarmac, so to speak.
Some may bitch and
and ask for their money back, but I always got the impression that there
were other issues at hand
with such cases….

This attempt wasn’t meant to be, alas, please just accept it and the fact
that iboga is ‘love’ applied,
and yes, tough love for most of us, but love and healing nonetheless and it
didn’t, nor ever will, reject
you or any one of us.

By the way, not sure this is a great idea but one thing that can indicate
whether this was iboga at all,
ie, low in alkaloids but the real thing, is smoking a fattie…. I found
that even when I didn’t feel anything
when taking the dud-batch,  smoking a joint 2 days later brought about a
whole range of iboga-related
sensations… and although I probably only tuned-in because of past
encounters, there is a definite and
very positive ‘grounding’ as opposed to the uncomfortableness/weirdness that
you were mentioning…

peace,
Adam

Brooke,

It sound like you are dealing with less than 1% ibogaine content that would
yield 300mg.  Two percent that is quite normal would yield 600 mg total dose.
You are looking at an effective dose of no less than 12mg/kg and a preferred
dose of at least 15mg/kg.  There is also the possibility you received
adulterated material or another botanical product rather than t. iboga.   Too bad.  Try
extract or HCl from a reputable supplier next time.

Keep us informed.

I know of someone who has taken ibogaine in various forms 14-15 times,
and from their report, the visuals did not diminish. It is worth noting
that the individual did not take it for addiction, but in a therapuetic
shaman guided setting for spiritual growth over a period of 8 years or
so. Also worth noting is the iboga[ine] was often administered in
combination with other psychoactive substances, such as lsd, yage,
mushrooms and mescaline. Of these combos, The supplemental substances
paled in comparison to the iboga “full tilt boogie” potency and
duration. To my knowledge, these experiences have not been written
about, but i’d have loved to be a fly on the cerebral vortex walls of
Those trips.

The data is mixed and not well organized.  Some individuals appear to cease
visualizing after 4 or 5 ibogaine administrations and if we can believe
reports, others do not.  What is needed is an organized study of no less than one
hundred patients to be dosed seven
times at full therapeutic doses and to have their pharmacokinetic levels
tracked and reports on visualization monitored.  If running the hundred individu
als is not conclusive we may have to run 500 subjects.  Possibly, 500 opioid
dependent subjects and 500 non-dependent controls.

This is great. I tried contacting these folk before our very small
ibogaine conference in Paris in December, 2002. I am gratified to see
it has finally come to their attention. Now perhaps there can be a
French conference on Iboga involving a more representative array or
French activists, doctors and researchers. The reason the 2002 event
didn’t jell is that there was not quite enough money, and the
organizing was not sufficiently exhaustive on the outreach.

The bad batch from Japan did indeed give l-tryptophan a bad name.

“L-tryptophan was pulled from the market in 1990 after a contaminated
form of the product, made in Japan, was associated with nearly 1,500
cases of eosinophilia myalgia (EMS), a rare and occasionally deadly
blood disease. More than 30 deaths occurred. ”

Here’s an FDA page on the subject (from google on tryptophan japan):

The liver-cleanse site says l-ornithine is good for sleep – I
certainly slept well on it when liver cleansing, haven’t tried

Thanks for sharing Callie!

I’m doing ibogaine (soaked rootbark version) tomorrow night…and I’m
fairly excited.  Right now, I’m cleaning my home extensively so I’ll have
something fresh to return to on Sun or Mon (body willing).  I’m also on
the
tail end of a liver cleanse, so my guts are in knots and energy level’s
pretty high.  My watcher had prepared my space for tomorrow, and a good

I promise to share my results with everyone…here’s hoping that

What I also liked about ibogaine, as opposed to acid, is that there’s
usually a happy ending. If you get torture, hey, it’s feels great
afterwards! I mean, real elation. And then you know it, you know what it
looks like to go through that doorway. You get awareness. And awareness
always diminishes fear. Horror trips on ibo always pass and afterwards I
usually just feel my connection with everything and everybody.

Thanks very much Nick (and everyone else too) for relating your
experiences.

What you just said in that paragraph there makes me feel a lot better
about the idea of doing iboga.

While my experience ON acid was extremely horrific, it was really the
AFTEReffects that were so problematic. The panic attacks, the fear of
being insane, the fear that at any moment the world around me could
crumble into hell. These persisted for years after my bad trips.

I think I could deal with a grueling psychedelic experience if the fear
and and mental anguish doesn’t persist on and on after the trip. From what
you’ve said, it sounds like this isn’t likely to happen with iboga…

With fear I find personally that understanding can help a lot. When the mind
is overwhelmed you need to give it something. My experience with ibogaine is
that the drug is just a vast, cosmic reset button. It does this with
dependence traits, it does it with environmental and social conditioning,
and it does it with life itself. The drug always tries to drag me back to a
bornless state, pre physical existence. It’s a pool of bliss, or so I’m
told, I don’t get to experience it with iboga because before I hit that
space fully the fear comes in. To hit that pure primal space with iboga, my
feeling is that everything in the way needs to be got out of the way. So the
drug shows you what is in the way – in my case fear, the fear of letting go
totally without any need for identity, without knowing if I can come back. I
can go there now with under 5g of rootbark these days, on account of having
done such big doses in the past. About one hour in and my mind will just
take off into that space – God looking up at creation commencing, cracks of
light in the sky around my head, the realization that the word “I” is God,
then suddenly the fear, What if I don’t come back? What if there’s only me?

I’m developing a strategy to deal with it next time.

Nick

Hi Nick,
I think I used the wrong words when I said I ‘let go of my
anger’.
I agree with you in that you have to feel your hatred towards your parents
or whoever to release it.  What I ment was that I worked through my anger.

The thing to remember about anger is that it is basically a GOOD THING.
The mind is socially conditioned into believing that it is a BAD THING, that
this God-given agent of healing is in some way a BAD THING – that it is
dangerous to experience anger and certainly not something to show to others.

You don’t have to “work through” your anger like it’s some kind of penance,
Luke man. Anger is fine. Sure, you can’t just go around the place screaming
and attacking people, you have to find the right kind of place and people
where you can get into it. But when you do, you can use these feelings to
expand yourself massively. A drug like ibogaine attempts to reintegrate you.
All the compression that takes places in one’s whole body-mind through the
suppression of feelings, ibogaine will attempt to undo. It’s good to know
this, that a lot of reintegration, at a BODILY level, may have to take place
after using ibogaine. When you know this it’s easier.

During that particular ibogaine session i was overcome with anger and rage
and as this happened I saw hundereds of scenes in which I fought with my
parents particularly my mother.  The moved so fast it’s hard to remember
how
many there were but after this session I felt much more easy going and for
some time I felt like I couldn’t even get angry if I tried and from time
to
time I still feel that way although I still feel that there is a deeper
anger that hasn’t been addressed yet.

I find your ideas about reiki very interesting.  I’m not that familiar
with it but a friend of mine was going out with a woman who was a reiki
master.  She was very tempremental.  He used to say how he felt effected
by
her engery while he was around her.

Yeah, it sounds like her mind is still stuck with a lot of judgements about
feelings and anger. It’s normal in the West. Feelings arise and the mind
says “Whoa, hold on a moment there, I don’t want to feel this. I need to
find something so I don’t have to feel this and certainly don’t have to show
it.” From this central mis-processing by the mind, all sorts of avoidance
strategies commence. There’s nothing wrong with Reiki, it’s great. But to
use it to try and avoid feelings, or to create vast mental systems involving
chakras, meridians, whatever, to avoid actually just feeling is just
pointless. The fundamental premise of the mind that the emotion being felt
is unacceptable is the problem, not the emotion itself. And, of course,
chances are that it will just keep on arising again and again until it is
felt and processed.

Nick

Luke

but
this is not true. That someone experiences anger shows that their body is
healthy and that it is trying to reintegrate after a period of having its
boundaries crossed.

Hi Jon, Sandy,
I think i can relate to Sandys experiences in that
ibogaine
can ‘break’ open your head and leting out some very painfull feelings.
I
feel very ‘cracked’ open after several ibogaine sessions with alot of
physicall feelings. I was under the impression through my experiences
and
what I’ve read about the nature of repressed trauma is that this is
what
psychadelics do. They can open your minds defences and allow repressed
traumas or emotions to surface. I think this seems to cause a lot of
stress
and anxiety.
I think there’s a great difference between ibogaine
and
LSD
in that ibogaine tends to bring an understanding of issues that
arrise.
Though it can also leave you with unresolved feelings rising to
consiousness.  I still take anti-depressants every day to keep my
stress
levels down.  Perhaps that’s why they say that multiple sessions are
more
beneficial.  It’s hard to tell as  everyone is different.  I ended up
feeling much worse after my second ibogaine session  I came out of it
with
a
lot of anger from childhood being released and ended up falling out
with
my
girlfriend.  I was still drining heavily then and didn’t really have
enought
awareness of the fact that I was taking out my anger towards my
parents
on
other people.  I managed to let go of much of that anger in a
subsequent
session.   I think it’s would be very helpfull to have loving and
supportive
friends and your lifes cicumstances are important.

Hi Luke,

Yes, friends are what will get you through.

When I hear you say things like “letting go of anger,” warning
bells sounds. My experience, and that of many others, is that you usually
have to wrestle a little with the anger first. Before you can forgive
your
parents you have to really let yourself hate them first. Then the loving
comes naturally – “I forgive my parents for not being perfect.” It’s
easy.
But you have
to allow yourself to go into the hatred first.

Buddhists, Reiki and healing people, and affirmation or NLP fans will
tell
you you can let go of anger just through a few
little exercises or meditation. It’s bullshit. It’s sounds good. It
convinces the mind (especially when the fear of really feeling is high)
but
it’s bullshit. Over the last few years I’ve been in a hundred groups with
just about every Buddhist, Reiki artist and NLP practitioner you could
imagine. And every one I’ve seen reduced to chaos
rapidly through the fact that they are each, without exception in my
experience,
holding down enough anger to kill a bull elephant. Every single one, man.
They’re terrified of feeling it and they’ve allowed their mind to seduce
them away from feeling and expression what’s actually going on inside.

You can’t rationalize feelings away. It won’t work, they resurface and
will
drag your physical body down.

As for Reiki, hands-on healing and all this stuff – very little use
either
for anger. (useful for other things). All this stuff can do here is heal
on
a superficial level, like a sticking plaster. I live in a new age
centre in the UK and am surrounded by healers. I can see the energy
fields
around the bodies they’re working on and all the energy usually does is
close the throat chakra – blocking expression, blocking feeling. You feel
light, you feel spiritual, you think it’s great, but actually God has
just
shut
your circuits down for a while cause you were overloading, and in too
many
feelings to function.

Affirmations and NLP have their place in therapy but you can’t use them
for
anger properly. Anger management, yes. But not actually to give you what
anger will give you when you express it.

The body experiences anger when it’s been invaded. It’s natural and
healing.
When that anger couldn’t be expressed, because you were too young,
because
it wasn’t appropriate, or because you’d been conditioned out of allowing
it,
it goes inside the body and resurfaces when something triggers it. This
is
healthy. Alan Lowen, father of bioenergetics, calls anger the healing
emotion. It restores the body on a physical level after it’s been
invaded.
The feeling of anger is totally healthy, it shows that your body and your
emotions are working properly. If you just try to meditate it away,
rationalize it, chant it out, affirm it away, then you miss. You miss the
reintegration of the body that has to follow invasion. The anger comes up
again and you forgive people left, right and centre, and you miss again.
So
on and so forth until finally the body becomes host to illness because it
has never actually been allowed to heal the way it’s designed to.

So, my advice to you is, find yourself a safe, supportive environment and
SCREAM your guts out. THEN you can forgive people, affirm away, or repeat
endlessly “I am not angry” and it will work.

The thing is is that the painfull/traumatizing/anxiety
feelings are always going to be there unless they’re resolved. That’s
why
we
use alcohol/pain-killers/meds to reduce these feelings.  Whether
ibogaine
can relsove all that is another story but it will bring these thingss
to
consiousness. Personnaly I found it very rewarding but it has been a
very
difficult time emotionally

Damn! That is so great! A year clean?! Blows me away! And you were on Methadone two times as long as me!
I am truly inspired. I was convinced before but I LOVE hearing more success.
The USA needs to wise up and seriously look into Ibogaine! It might just change the lives of our addicted citizens!
I know I am not waiting for the FDA. I want this fucking gorilla off my back!

Thanks for the note, Callie, and I hope your detox goes well. I got down to 24 mg. before going in for the treatment. I had been on methadone for close to 15 years prior to my ibogaine treatment, and frankly didn’t feel all that great for about a month (mostly due to the lack of sleep), but I was still well enough to travel to San Francisco for 4 days of intense all-day rehearsal immediately following my 5-day stay at the facility in Mexico. I was snorkeling in Hawaii a month later, and there’s no way I would have been doing that I had quit cold turkey.
I took ibogaine on March 2, 2003, at the Ibogaine Therapy clinic in Rosarito Beach, Baja CA Mexico. I have stayed clean for over a year now…for the first time in 3 decades!…and I have the joyous belief that the changes in me are permanent. While I felt very tired after treatment and experienced some minor withdrawal symptoms, the main change was in my thinking about dope; it just didn’t seem like a very good idea anymore, no matter how crappy I felt. Ibogaine took me beyond the immediate “need” that all junkies cave in to time and time again and made me see the big picture, where the repetitive taking of drugs was just plain insane. It was a profoundly revelatory experience for my old junkie ass, and I’m generally not the kind of guy to use “relevatory” in a sentence! You, or anyone else who’s interested, can read my story at  http://www.ibogaine-therapy.net/testimonials.html . Scroll down to “Greg’s Story”.
Props up to my homeboys Steve and Marcus Malone! I did indeed co-write the Steve Miller hit “Jungle Love”, but, honest, it wasn’t me who put those stupid whistles at the beginning and end.
It has been an amazing year. I’ll write more later.
Looking forward to hearing about Brooke’s stroll with Iboga. This is a great group; thanks for the turn-on, Mr. Anker!

The cost of ibogaine per patient is about $300 CN, but the 4 full time
staff and facility and food and utilities makes the cost per patient
over 5 days about $2,500 – $3,000, so ibogaine is only 10 – 15% of the
total cost of our treatment here at ibogatherapyhouse.org

Sorry, I can’t talk about others, it’s their business what they do and
how they do it.

Here is an interesting part of conversation between me and Matt
(cryellow@cox.net); I received this on March 11:

////////////////////////////
Marko,

Without getting into details, someone else who has this exact same
Ibogaine
has offered it for far, far less.  This person knows you and speaks very
highly of you, but states that the Ibogaine you suppy and that person
supplies are the same.  We confirmed this because that person supplies a
major clinic (this has been confirmed).

I just wanted to give you a chance to match this deal.  No offense, but
I
now know how much you are marking this up.  Great for you, but if you
can
see your way clear to marking it up a lot less (for everyone), I bet you
would make more money in volume in the long run.  We are told you are
marking this up something like ninefold (buying for about one hundred
U.S.
selling for about nine hundred U.S.).

You are a businessperson and entitled to mark up whatever you like, but,
again, maybe you would make more money through increased volume if you
marked up 50% or even 100% instead of 800%.  If we are mistaken as to
your
markup, then we have been misled and I apologize.

Cheers,
Matt
///////////////////////////////////

As you can see, I’m a businessperson; not only that, I’m one of the

That’s highly cool!!

Now you can understand how am I able to give HCl away for free – but
(unfortunately) only to local people.

This will change when The Temple will be on-line (as I already said);
we’ll have sort of contest and a reasonable amount of HCl will be sent
to
the winner (not to countries where it’s not legal, of course!)

In the meantime, I suggest that you (and everyone else who wants IBO)
ask
Matt where you can get decent price; I’m sure he’ll be more than
helpful,
and his “person” will be delighted to broaden the business…

Tryptophan is the “active” ingredient in milk and turkey that makes one

The story I heard was all this happened about the same time the SSRI’s were
offered
to the public by the pharmaceutical companies.  Tryptophan was a substance
which competes with the anti-depressants in that both affect the amount of
serotonin
found at the synapses in the CNS.  The pharmaceutical companies have a lot
of clout!!
It is in their best interest that Tryptophan be banished from the market
place.  Never
mind that Tryptophan is one of the natural amino acids found in the body.

Preston,

l-tryptophan isn’t dangerous. We got a bad batch from Japan a while back and
they outlawed it in the USA, cept it is OK in baby food – to help babies be
quiet (the babyfood lobby cries awfully loudly) . Tryptophan is the “active”
ingredient in milk and turkey that makes one sleepy, it is also the
precoursor of serotonin (l-tryptophan, not turkey).

How so, “dangerous” Brett? What does it do? What would be the purpose of
taking it in the first place, despite this possibly being a slightly
dumb-like question?

real l-tryptophan, it is legal to import for personal use.

“but want to double check that

I don’t notice any difference one way or the other, before, during or after
using l-tryptophan. dl-phenylalanine seems to speed recovery, so does
chicken soup…

When I went through the ibogaine detox last year (coming off of several years of methadone & opiate use), a cocktail of l-tryptophan and melatonin about 30 minutes before bed really helped me to go to sleep and get those first few precious hours of blissful shut-eye before inevitably waking up about 3-4 hours later (at least for the first month). I would sometimes take more after waking up to go back to sleep, with varying results. But it really helped for those first crucial hours of restorative REM sleep.
The bad batch from Japan did indeed give l-tryptophan a bad name. It, and melatonin, are both naturally occurring substances in the human body, and are quite safe.
By the way, new member here. I was turned on to this list by a fellow Bwiti. Interesting idea!

Anyone have any say about Melatonin? A couple of tablets (3mg) sure will help me fall off to sleep when I am keyed up.
Back in the early 80’s when I worked alcohol detox, we handed out 1000 mg of L-tryptophan nightly to patients for rest.
I did not know it was now considered unsafe.

The bad batch from Japan did indeed give l-tryptophan a bad name. It, and melatonin, are both naturally occurring substances in the human body, and are quite safe.
By the way, new member here. I was turned on to this list by a fellow Bwiti. Interesting idea!

Anyone have any say about Melatonin? A couple of tablets (3mg) sure will help me fall off to sleep when I am keyed up.
Back in the early 80’s when I worked alcohol detox, we handed out 1000 mg of L-tryptophan nightly to patients for rest.
I did not know it was now considered unsafe.

I am new here too and I am hoping to do Ibogaine in the next few months.
I have officially started my methadone detox! lol! Only 2mg a week for awhile. I really never thought I would start a detox but I am in control. I can stop and even go back up if I get too scared! lol! I am hoping to at least get down to 50mg before doing the Ibogaine.
I live in Tennessee so I have to save some $$ to travel for Ibo treatment.
Well, enough about me!
How about you? Please share about yourself! When did you do Ibo? Were you successful?
Later, Callie

The story I heard was all this happened about the same time the SSRI’s were offered
to the public by the pharmaceutical companies.  Tryptophan was a substance
which competes with the anti-depressants in that both affect the amount of serotonin
found at the synapses in the CNS.  The pharmaceutical companies have a lot of clout!!
It is in their best interest that Tryptophan be banished from the market place.  Never
mind that Tryptophan is one of the natural amino acids found in the body.

Preston,

l-tryptophan isn’t dangerous. We got a bad batch from Japan a while back and they outlawed it in the USA, cept it is OK in baby food – to help babies be quiet (the babyfood lobby cries awfully loudly) . Tryptophan is the “active” ingredient in milk and turkey that makes one sleepy, it is also the precoursor of serotonin (l-tryptophan, not turkey).

Sorry, I can’t talk about others, it’s their business what they do and
how they do it.

Here is an interesting part of conversation between me and Matt
(cryellow@cox.net); I received this on March 11:

////////////////////////////
Marko,

Without getting into details, someone else who has this exact same
Ibogaine
has offered it for far, far less.  This person knows you and speaks very
highly of you, but states that the Ibogaine you suppy and that person
supplies are the same.  We confirmed this because that person supplies a
major clinic (this has been confirmed).

I just wanted to give you a chance to match this deal.  No offense, but I
now know how much you are marking this up.  Great for you, but if you can
see your way clear to marking it up a lot less (for everyone), I bet you
would make more money in volume in the long run.  We are told you are
marking this up something like ninefold (buying for about one hundred U.S.
selling for about nine hundred U.S.).

You are a businessperson and entitled to mark up whatever you like, but,
again, maybe you would make more money through increased volume if you
marked up 50% or even 100% instead of 800%.  If we are mistaken as to your
markup, then we have been misled and I apologize.

Cheers,
Matt
///////////////////////////////////

As you can see, I’m a businessperson; not only that, I’m one of the worst
capitalists, marking up 800% (whooops, I mean something like ninefold!).

That’s highly cool!!

Now you can understand how am I able to give HCl away for free – but
(unfortunately) only to local people.

This will change when The Temple will be on-line (as I already said);
we’ll have sort of contest and a reasonable amount of HCl will be sent to
the winner (not to countries where it’s not legal, of course!)

In the meantime, I suggest that you (and everyone else who wants IBO) ask
Matt where you can get decent price; I’m sure he’ll be more than helpful,
and his “person” will be delighted to broaden the business…

<laughing>

Marko

(BTW, I accepted Matt’s apologise; but in next E-mail he said: “So, how
about it, are you willing to make less than 800% profit?  :-)”

laughing again>

Thanks Tom – greatly appreciated.

My only concern right now is the possibility of distraction.  My watcher
originally had a quiet location, but that feel through.  And my hope was to
embark on Saturday night, but if I were to do it at my apartment, I have a
feeling that I’d hear the regular weekend revellers making noise into the
wee hours possibly ruining my trip.

Can anyone tell me how ‘perfect’ the surroundings need to be audio/visually
in order to facilitate the journey.  I only have a window of a few days with
my fermented rootbark, so please let me know asap.

Thanks as always to everyone for your continued support.

In line with what Bill Ross was describing re: concerns about Serotonin
toxicity, a better preparatory coolout for rest and anti-anxiety would be
4 grams of L-Glycine.  The tryptophan and 5-htp are in the pathway of
serotonin, which can trigger cortisol and other stress hormones if out of
whack. The glycine is in line for serine, which will help you get to more
comfortable landscapes. A source of neuroactive Magnesium, like a citrate
or aspartate would complement all that, so a capsule of it, around 200mg.
would accompany the 4 gr. Glycine every 4 hours a few times before travel
with Bwiti, I would estimate.

The Ibo will work with what you bring to the table, so to speak, so trust
that and fear not.

Dr. Tom

If you are going to take ibogaine while on effexor, or any other
antidepressant for that matter, definately do a small test dose of
the ibogaine before you do it for real.

Beyond this, taking a series of smaller doses and waiting for
each to take effect (an hour?) before taking more would lessen
the chances of serotonin poisoning and limit its severity if
it did occur. A small test dose will not tell you that a full
dose would be safe as far as serotonin poisoning is concerned,
since more ibogaine might mean more serotonin until the limit
of safety is reached.

toxicity, a better preparatory coolout for rest and anti-anxiety would be
4 grams of L-Glycine.  The tryptophan and 5-htp are in the pathway of
serotonin, which can trigger cortisol and other stress hormones if out of
whack. The glycine is in line for serine, which will help you get to more
comfortable landscapes. A source of neuroactive Magnesium, like a citrate
or aspartate would complement all that, so a capsule of it, around 200mg.
would accompany the 4 gr. Glycine every 4 hours a few times before travel
with Bwiti, I would estimate.

The Ibo will work with what you bring to the table, so to speak, so trust
that and fear not.

Dr. Tom

If you are going to take ibogaine while on effexor, or any other
antidepressant for that matter, definately do a small test dose of
the ibogaine before you do it for real.

Beyond this, taking a series of smaller doses and waiting for
each to take effect (an hour?) before taking more would lessen
the chances of serotonin poisoning and limit its severity if
it did occur. A small test dose will not tell you that a full
dose would be safe as far as serotonin poisoning is concerned,
since more ibogaine might mean more serotonin until the limit
of safety is reached.

Bill

Paul,

“I presume its ok to be on your prescribed methadone dose when taking ibo?”

Absolutely NOT. No drugs including opiates when doing ibogaine, no speed, no cocaine, no alcohol, pretty much no anything. This is pretty serious stuff, taking ibogaine and opiates together can cause an overdose. Typically wait 24 hours (more if you can) after the last methadone dose or about when withdrawal starts before taking the tester dose, then the main dose. The lower the amount of drugs in your system when doing the iboga the better the outcome. Typically there will be little or no withdrawal when taking iboga/ibogaine for addiction, mileage varies.

Please read ibogaine.org/manual.html.(serveral times) and take it very seriously.

2.5 grams.  Is that’s very high dose.  I was just wondering whether you would atribute the results you got to the higher dosage?  It must have been very tough.

As someone who digested 2.5 grams of Ibogaine HCL (all at once), while
“only” addicted to Nicotine, I must say that Ibogaine only did me good
in many respects. Although the “trip” was unpleasant to say the least,
it did me wonders In-terms of psychological maturity and enhanced the
value I attributed to life/love/friendship and health. It also made me
humble and my relations with people and the importance of nature
strengthened dramatically.
If you consider psychological stability a positive phenomena, (and many
do), I must say I was relatively stable before Ibogaine. But Ibogaine
allowed me to dive into my self consciousness and see the hang-ups and
the faults I have ignored. I other words, it was like pressing 10 years
of psychotherapy into 24 hours. Later, I slowly digested the info for a
long time thereafter.

I have treated over 5o people with Ibogaine HCL since 1988. In terms of
psychological problems, I have not encountered people who complained of
flips and lost of direction. On the contrary, the vast majority, even
those who had multiple conditions, said that they felt Ibogaine was
constructive for their psychic.

Hi Brooke,

I come from a multi-trauma’ed background – separation from birth
parents,
abuse, hospitalization – pretty much a horror trip (or so therapists
will
tell you). And I’ve had acutely negative experiences on acid, resulting
in
me not touching it for nearly 20 years.

I took some rootbark last night and had my usual “mild horror trip” – a
lot
of fear around being alone, underlying existential fears about waking up
and
finding I was the only person alive, and fear of encounters with
repressed
sides of my personality, wandering around my psyche like demons. But,
basically, it was a benign and learning experience. The drug just gives
me
the chance to see where I’m holding myself back and how I can direct
myself
in life and therapy. And, basically, I have always been attracted to the
dark side as well as the light. It’s ok to check out the torture
chambers
occasionally. Like this you get to really know yourself.

Ibo’s really not like acid – acid just lays its trip on you whether you
want
it or not. Ibogaine has intelligence. It shows you what you need to grow

maybe the mind judges stuff it experiences as “bad”, maybe “good.” But
that’s just the judgments. What I would advise is that you do it with
someone you know (who’s not taking it) and hold their hand on the
experience
til you feel safe. Might sound childish but any level of contact with
another human will help you feel more secure in a new environment. Also,
of
course, be aware how fear can just suck you in to its little mind game
and
go for directing the experience a little if it feels good. You also need
to
be secure inside yourself before you start that this is something YOU
actually want to do, not something others think would be good for you,
peer
pressure whatever. And, if it isn’t, don’t bother and don’t beat
yourself up
for it.

What I also liked about ibogaine, as opposed to acid, is that there’s
usually a happy ending. If you get torture, hey, it’s feels great
afterwards! I mean, real elation. And then you know it, you know what it
looks like to go through that doorway. You get awareness. And awareness
always diminishes fear. Horror trips on ibo always pass and afterwards I
usually just feel my connection with everything and everybody.

All the best

Nick

HI all,
I just got this note today from Andrew Byrne, who notes that “is
worrying that the American FDA has approved the marketing of the combination
product even
before research of this nature had been established. One wonders if they
have different standards for drugs used in the treatment of addiction.”
He’s talking about lessons learned giving test patients in a study
“high-dose buprenorphine following single administration of sublingual
tablet formulations in opioid naïve healthy male volunteers under a
naltrexone block,” and you gotta read below to see what they are Still
Learning about this concoction.
But what troubles me is that my pain specialist’s partner gave me a
pamphlet for exactly this shit last month, the incident I posted about here,
all angry and offended, when he asked if I were selling my pills (and the
flier I have for the stuff specifically warns that buprenorphine is
something doctors should be careful about prescribing as it is prime for
diversion to the streets) and other assorted commentary.
When I just now read news brief below this to my girlfriend, she
immediately said, “so that guy is trying to make you a fucking guinea pig”
which it appears is pretty much the case. How did the FDA approve this stuff
for marketing, (I Have the corporation’s pamphlet still, making sure to hold
on to it) without knowing this stuff still about the drugs and what happens
when they are combined in human patients? Btw, I told my own doctor there
was no way I was going to take the stuff, as the flier (“Important
information for patients- what you need to know about your treatment”) also
have an entire page of warning signs letting you know a doctor’s office
visit might be due as you liver is probably mushified and leaking from
whatever handy orifice it was can find- failing or suffering serious
life-threatening effects (as someone else noted recently, what “side”
effects? Those are Effects, period!) in other words
Egad, this is ridiulous and seems, oh I don’t know, somewhat wrong?
Opiates are bad, and one shouldn’t be on them too long no matter what the
reason, so we better get you taking This Stuff instead, cause it ain’t of
the earth and we won’t have any fears of your enaging in genuine
communication with the essenses of the planet herself in any way, we prefer
you engage in pure synthetic chemical flatness, no contact with the voices
of nature that she supplies us, those are not good and we wouldn’t want you
in touch with them. Hell, and we like you in a bit of pain anyway, cause
then we control you. Opiates work, and everyone can grow those. Bad, in
other words, and all the derivitives too, bad!
Peace,
Preston

experience.

Pharmacokinetics of high-dose buprenorphine following single
administration of sublingual tablet formulations in opioid naïve healthy
male volunteers under a naltrexone block. McAleer SD, Mills RJ, Polack
T, Hussain T, Rolan PE, Gibbs AD, Mullins FGP, Hussein Z. Drug Alc
Depend (2003) 72; 1:75-83

Dear Colleagues,
At last we have some real data on buprenorphine half lives, absorption
and effects from healthy volunteer studies. These researchers, who were
working for the manufacturers, have taken 35 healthy males and given
substantial doses of buprenorphine after 50 -150mg naltrexone ‘block’.
They then measured clinical and blood parameters at regular intervals
for up to 3 days in an in-patient setting. Techniques for measuring
blood levels of buprenorphine are still being developed and are not
generally available in clinical practice. This makes patient history and
clinical observation even more important than otherwise. A liquid
chromatographic tandem mass spectrometric (LC–MS/MS) assay was developed
by these researchers and it was validated for the measurement of
buprenorphine and nor-buprenorphine, its metabolite, in blood.

Mean half life was found to be 26 hours with a wide range from 9 to 69.
Interestingly, these authors have confirmed some observations in
clinical practice including highly variable half lives and the
‘bi-exponential’ decay sometimes reported by patients. Some had a
‘secondary peak’ at about 10 hours from dosing. The authors report that
some had higher levels following meals and propose ‘entero-hepatic
recirculation’ in some cases. Maximum or ‘peak’ levels occurred between
30 minutes and 3 hours.

The addition of naloxone in the sublingual preparation made no
difference to blood levels. The time taken for the tablets to dissolve
were similar for all dose levels from 2 to 16mg (range 6–12 min) and
were no different for the combination product. It is worrying that the
American FDA has approved the marketing of the combination product even
before research of this nature had been established. One wonders if they
have different standards for drugs used in the treatment of addiction.

A weakness of the study was that it did not examine levels in on-going
treatment, but just individual single doses. Thus is it more relevant to
the initiation period, which is still a major problem for some patients.
There were no opioid effects using the naltrexone block at between 50
and 150mg doses prior to opioid administration.

I think Marc is a great guy but I also don’t
understand what is the difference between this arrest
and all his other arrests? Doesn’t it just mean that
he’ll have more chances to talk to the press? Isn’t
that what all of this is about in the first place??
He’s arrested again for something to do with pot,
which is what Marc is always arrested for. It’s not
like he held up someone with a gun or is facing
charges that are any different then the ones he is
usually arrested for.

‘Marc Emery arrested for pot! For the 100th time!’
Maybe Marc should get a award? 😉

Marc if you’re reading this, love to you! Think what
you do is great and I’ll cc that to that huge list
too! Why not!

Forgive me if this is somehow serious and I’m having a
hard time taking it seriously!

Callie very sorry to hear about your insurance! I
would at least do what Howard suggested, he knows a
lot about methadone maintence and how it all works!

I don’t mean to sound insensitive which is what
everyone always says
right before they are right 😉 I know sometimes I
have the tendency to
think of a group of people on this list as these
cool maniacs who do
crazy things, Marc is for sure in that category with
Patrick, Preston,
Dave Hunter, all the rest. I forget sometimes or a
lot of the time that
there are people behind all that.

Let me ask what I mean to say, is this a big deal or
something? I mean
doesn’t Marc get himself arrested 5 or 10 times a
year, mostly on
purpose? When he is arrested I have the idea that
there are always a
army of lawyers and at least a few camera crews
there too.

Is this bust somehow different?

Not being obnoxious, only curious. Is this serious
in some special way
that makes it different then the last 5 times Marc
got busted?

If you are going to take ibogaine while on effexor, or any other
antidepressant for that matter, definately do a small test dose of the
ibogaine before you do it for real.

Beyond this, taking a series of smaller doses and waiting for
each to take effect (an hour?) before taking more would lessen
the chances of serotonin poisoning and limit its severity if
it did occur. A small test dose will not tell you that a full
dose would be safe as far as serotonin poisoning is concerned,
since more ibogaine might mean more serotonin until the limit
of safety is reached.

oh man…. i’m really sorry to hear that, callie…

i’m afraid i don’t have any advice to offer you, but i just wanted to let
you know that i really feel for ya…

health insurance in this country just simply sucks ass…

I was handed notice at Methadone clinic last week that my insurance has
decided I do not need Methadone Maintenance anymore. Reason given was
“According to
the records your provider sent to us, our Doctor feels Methadone
Maintenance
is no longer needed.”
I of course got angry…….then filed an appeal. My Tenncare made me an
appointment to have an assessment done which I had today.
It took grand total of 15 minutes. 10 of those minutes was the MSSW
telling
me how she did not believe in Methadone Maintenance and that she could not
recommend that my treatment be continued. She said she feels 6 years is
long
enough and that ‘we’ should try something else. I asked her what she had
in mind
for ‘us’ to do since I have has inpatient treatment 7 times with no
success and
she said “you have not had intensive outpatient treatment”.
To make a long story short, I am fighting a losing battle I think. I will
continue my methadone no, matter if insurance pays or not but I am
fortunate
enough to have a job where I can continue by paying.
There are a LOT of other folks on TennCare who will not be able to keep
their
Methadone if the insurance quits paying.
We are so behind here in the South!
Do any of you west or east coast folks have any wise words to share on how
we
can enlighten these ignorant folks?
When my insurance started paying they told me I had to keep my urines
clean
to keep them paying. Well, I finally have for the past 9 months. Now they
say
that since I have not used in 9 months I am cured, so to speak. It’s a
lose,
lose situation.
Just venting helped! Thanks for listening and any suggestions will be
considered and appreciated.
Callie

Nick,

I just wanted to say I really agree with what you’ve said here, and I
think you said it very well. People are so afraid of anger.. especially
“new agey” sort of people…

and it’s really quite unhealthy…. because all they’re really doing is
supressing their feelings, not getting rid of them…

the only way to get rid of anger is to accept it and go with it. if you’re
angry, you’re generally angry for a reason. and that’s good and healthy.

its keeping the anger bottled up inside and letting it rot you from the
inside out that’s unhealthy.

Yes, friends are what will get you through.

When I hear you say things like “letting go of anger,” warning
bells sounds. My experience, and that of many others, is that you usually
have to wrestle a little with the anger first. Before you can forgive your
parents you have to really let yourself hate them first. Then the loving
comes naturally – “I forgive my parents for not being perfect.” It’s easy.
But you have
to allow yourself to go into the hatred first.

Buddhists, Reiki and healing people, and affirmation or NLP fans will tell
you you can let go of anger just through a few
little exercises or meditation. It’s bullshit. It’s sounds good. It
convinces the mind (especially when the fear of really feeling is high)
but
it’s bullshit. Over the last few years I’ve been in a hundred groups with
just about every Buddhist, Reiki artist and NLP practitioner you could
imagine. And every one I’ve seen reduced to chaos
rapidly through the fact that they are each, without exception in my
experience,
holding down enough anger to kill a bull elephant. Every single one, man.
They’re terrified of feeling it and they’ve allowed their mind to seduce
them away from feeling and expression what’s actually going on inside.

You can’t rationalize feelings away. It won’t work, they resurface and
will
drag your physical body down.

As for Reiki, hands-on healing and all this stuff – very little use either
for anger. (useful for other things). All this stuff can do here is heal
on
a superficial level, like a sticking plaster. I live in a new age
centre in the UK and am surrounded by healers. I can see the energy fields
around the bodies they’re working on and all the energy usually does is
close the throat chakra – blocking expression, blocking feeling. You feel
light, you feel spiritual, you think it’s great, but actually God has just
shut
your circuits down for a while cause you were overloading, and in too many
feelings to function.

Affirmations and NLP have their place in therapy but you can’t use them
for
anger properly. Anger management, yes. But not actually to give you what
anger will give you when you express it.

The body experiences anger when it’s been invaded. It’s natural and
healing.
When that anger couldn’t be expressed, because you were too young, because
it wasn’t appropriate, or because you’d been conditioned out of allowing
it,
it goes inside the body and resurfaces when something triggers it. This is
healthy. Alan Lowen, father of bioenergetics, calls anger the healing
emotion. It restores the body on a physical level after it’s been invaded.
The feeling of anger is totally healthy, it shows that your body and your
emotions are working properly. If you just try to meditate it away,
rationalize it, chant it out, affirm it away, then you miss. You miss the
reintegration of the body that has to follow invasion. The anger comes up
again and you forgive people left, right and centre, and you miss again.
So
on and so forth until finally the body becomes host to illness because it
has never actually been allowed to heal the way it’s designed to.

So, my advice to you is, find yourself a safe, supportive environment and
SCREAM your guts out. THEN you can forgive people, affirm away, or repeat
endlessly “I am not angry” and it will work.

Nick

The thing is is that the painfull/traumatizing/anxiety
feelings are always going to be there unless they’re resolved. That’s
why
we
use alcohol/pain-killers/meds to reduce these feelings.  Whether
ibogaine
can relsove all that is another story but it will bring these thingss to
consiousness. Personnaly I found it very rewarding but it has been a
very
difficult time emotionally

In a word, absolutely. Also give yourself a little time after before going back on (if you do) and start with a lower dose. Ibogaine boosts serotonin, more isn’t better.

If you are going to take ibogaine while on effexor, or any other
antidepressant for that matter, definately do a small test dose of the
ibogaine before you do it for real.

Beyond this, taking a series of smaller doses and waiting for
each to take effect (an hour?) before taking more would lessen
the chances of serotonin poisoning and limit its severity if
it did occur. A small test dose will not tell you that a full
dose would be safe as far as serotonin poisoning is concerned,
since more ibogaine might mean more serotonin until the limit
of safety is reached.

Sounds like we have similare ‘issues’.  I forgot to mention I’m on
Effexor
aswell-would I really have to stop it before I took the Iboga?That scares
me.

Well, I’m not a doctor, so I don’t know that you would HAVE to stop
effexor before taking ibogaine… but it seems to me that taking ibogaine
while on a medication like that could be risky.

One of my really bad acid trips nearly killed me because I was taking
prozac and lithium at the time. Well, actually it DID kill me; I was
clinically dead for a little while, and then I was in a coma for 2 days.

I’m not too keen on repeating that experience, as you might imagine…eheh.

But anyway, there’s this thing called serotonin syndrome… when you
combine certain drugs that affect the serotonin system, you basically get
too much serotonin building up, and bad things happen. Bad things like
convulsions, loss of consciousness, and death. Presumably, that’s what
happened to me when i went into that coma..

Both effexor and ibogaine affect the serotonin system, but (as far as I
know) no studies have been done to determine how they might interact, so
it would seem sensible to me to avoid being the guinea pig for that
research.

I mean, combining effexor and ibogaine may in fact have no dangerous
interactions, but they certainly conceivable could.

If you are going to take ibogaine while on effexor, or any other
antidepressant for that matter, definately do a small test dose of the
ibogaine before you do it for real. Unfortunately, many of the symptoms of
serotonin syndrome are things that happen as a result of ibogaine alone,
so it would be difficult to tell if it’s the iboga or a drug interaction
that’s causing them.

The full list of serotonin syndrome symptoms:

euphoria, drowsiness, sustained rapid eye movement, overreaction of the
reflexes, rapid muscle contraction and relaxation in the ankle causing
abnormal movements of the foot, clumsiness, restlessness, feeling drunk
and dizzy, muscle contraction and relaxation in the jaw, sweating,
intoxication, muscle twitching, rigidity, high body temperature, mental
status changes were frequent (including confusion and hypomania – a “happy
drunk” state), shivering, diarrhea, loss of consciousness and death. (The
Serotonin Syndrome, AM J PSYCHIATRY, June 1991)

Anyway, I hope this helps you somewhat…

take care

What I also liked about ibogaine, as opposed to acid, is that there’s
usually a happy ending. If you get torture, hey, it’s feels great
afterwards! I mean, real elation. And then you know it, you know what it
looks like to go through that doorway. You get awareness. And awareness
always diminishes fear. Horror trips on ibo always pass and afterwards I
usually just feel my connection with everything and everybody.

Thanks very much Nick (and everyone else too) for relating your experiences.

What you just said in that paragraph there makes me feel a lot better
about the idea of doing iboga.

While my experience ON acid was extremely horrific, it was really the
AFTEReffects that were so problematic. The panic attacks, the fear of
being insane, the fear that at any moment the world around me could
crumble into hell. These persisted for years after my bad trips.

I think I could deal with a grueling psychedelic experience if the fear
and and mental anguish doesn’t persist on and on after the trip. From what
you’ve said, it sounds like this isn’t likely to happen with iboga…

Paul,

“I presume its ok to be on your prescribed methadone dose when taking ibo?”

Absolutely NOT. No drugs including opiates when doing ibogaine, no speed, no cocaine, no alcohol, pretty much no anything. This is pretty serious stuff, taking ibogaine and opiates together can cause an overdose. Typically wait 24 hours (more if you can) after the last methadone dose or about when withdrawal starts before taking the tester dose, then the main dose. The lower the amount of drugs in your system when doing the iboga the better the outcome. Typically there will be little or no withdrawal when taking iboga/ibogaine for addiction, mileage varies.

Please read ibogaine.org/manual.html.(serveral times) and take it very seriously.

Hi Nick,
I think I used the wrong words when I said I ‘let go of my anger’.  I agree with you in that you have to feel your hatred towards your parents or whoever to release it.  What I ment was that I worked through my anger.  During that particular ibogaine session i was overcome with anger and rage and as this happened I saw hundereds of scenes in which I fought with my parents particularly my mother.  The moved so fast it’s hard to remember how many there were but after this session I felt much more easy going and for some time I felt like I couldn’t even get angry if I tried and from time to time I still feel that way although I still feel that there is a deeper anger that hasn’t been addressed yet.

I find your ideas about reiki very interesting.  I’m not that familiar with it but a friend of mine was going out with a woman who was a reiki master.  She was very tempremental.  He used to say how he felt effected by her engery while he was around her.

Hi Luke,

Yes, friends are what will get you through.

When I hear you say things like “letting go of anger,” warning
bells sounds. My experience, and that of many others, is that you usually
have to wrestle a little with the anger first. Before you can forgive your
parents you have to really let yourself hate them first. Then the loving
comes naturally – “I forgive my parents for not being perfect.” It’s easy.
But you have
to allow yourself to go into the hatred first.

Buddhists, Reiki and healing people, and affirmation or NLP fans will tell
you you can let go of anger just through a few
little exercises or meditation. It’s bullshit. It’s sounds good. It
convinces the mind (especially when the fear of really feeling is high) but
it’s bullshit. Over the last few years I’ve been in a hundred groups with
just about every Buddhist, Reiki artist and NLP practitioner you could
imagine. And every one I’ve seen reduced to chaos
rapidly through the fact that they are each, without exception in my
experience,
holding down enough anger to kill a bull elephant. Every single one, man.
They’re terrified of feeling it and they’ve allowed their mind to seduce
them away from feeling and expression what’s actually going on inside.

You can’t rationalize feelings away. It won’t work, they resurface and will
drag your physical body down.

As for Reiki, hands-on healing and all this stuff – very little use either
for anger. (useful for other things). All this stuff can do here is heal on
a superficial level, like a sticking plaster. I live in a new age
centre in the UK and am surrounded by healers. I can see the energy fields
around the bodies they’re working on and all the energy usually does is
close the throat chakra – blocking expression, blocking feeling. You feel
light, you feel spiritual, you think it’s great, but actually God has just
shut
your circuits down for a while cause you were overloading, and in too many
feelings to function.

Affirmations and NLP have their place in therapy but you can’t use them for
anger properly. Anger management, yes. But not actually to give you what
anger will give you when you express it.

The body experiences anger when it’s been invaded. It’s natural and healing.
When that anger couldn’t be expressed, because you were too young, because
it wasn’t appropriate, or because you’d been conditioned out of allowing it,
it goes inside the body and resurfaces when something triggers it. This is
healthy. Alan Lowen, father of bioenergetics, calls anger the healing
emotion. It restores the body on a physical level after it’s been invaded.
The feeling of anger is totally healthy, it shows that your body and your
emotions are working properly. If you just try to meditate it away,
rationalize it, chant it out, affirm it away, then you miss. You miss the
reintegration of the body that has to follow invasion. The anger comes up
again and you forgive people left, right and centre, and you miss again. So
on and so forth until finally the body becomes host to illness because it
has never actually been allowed to heal the way it’s designed to.

So, my advice to you is, find yourself a safe, supportive environment and
SCREAM your guts out. THEN you can forgive people, affirm away, or repeat
endlessly “I am not angry” and it will work.

I don’t mean to sound insensitive which is what everyone always says
right before they are right 😉 I know sometimes I have the tendency to
think of a group of people on this list as these cool maniacs who do
crazy things, Marc is for sure in that category with Patrick, Preston,
Dave Hunter, all the rest. I forget sometimes or a lot of the time that
there are people behind all that.

Let me ask what I mean to say, is this a big deal or something? I mean
doesn’t Marc get himself arrested 5 or 10 times a year, mostly on
purpose? When he is arrested I have the idea that there are always a
army of lawyers and at least a few camera crews there too.

Is this bust somehow different?

Not being obnoxious, only curious. Is this serious in some special way
that makes it different then the last 5 times Marc got busted?

“The dark side of public floyd” by Pink Enemy
In the ’60’s, there was much talk of a soldier gone AWOL named private Floyd. Rumour had it that this soldier learned how to grow marijuana in his armpits ,distill LSD in his bladder and harvest opium in his nostrils. This resulted in a state of intoxication so intense that individual parts of his body would suddenly detach and launch themselves into orbit around the sun. One night Pink Enemy, avid astronomers that they are, noticed a new binary system consisting of two kneecaps orbiting what appeared to be an imploded human brain. Having devined that these were indeed the mortal remnants of legendary private Floyd ,they wittily decided to name the system “public floyd”, and in tribute composed this touching elegy.

Think of it this way. Iboga unsets you like it would unset cement. The idea is to reshape the cement (you) without those triggers and let it set a bit, you have to be away from them to do this. It isn’t like you or the iboga is likely to forget something, whatever is important will come up. The only time I missed something when doing iboga when I was afraid of it. I needed a 2nd dose and didn’t go far enough, I did that a couple times. It is a bit different when it is not addiction but you still want to break through to a certain level. You will know how much

Hey,

To Brooke and all, I’d recommend picking up a certain book for the 2-3 days prior to the trip–  “The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle. This guy used to get panic attacks and one night woke up into a major attack which led to a breakthru of sorts…

The thing is, reading his take on ‘reality’, the NOW, our internal dialogue etc is f-ckin’ trippy as hell- I thought this was maybe just me flipping out on his words, but I’ve met others who’ve confirmed this… he pulls these zen rabbits out of his hat and lets you peak behind the veil, if ever so briefly… very empowering, lucid and in ‘plain talk’ -not like reading koans or anything….

Also, his take on things is very suited for coping with the anxiety/panic and the drama that
unfolds during an ibogaine rebirth… to recap, you’re no more your persona than you are the id card in your wallet and just observing things from a little off to the side, in the midst of it all, should help you pierce thru….

all the best,
Adam

ps I second Brett’s suggestion that you don’t do this at home.. there’s something to be said about being in another environment- it’s not just because you get to embark on a journey but you also get to journey back home.

We are so behind here in the South!
Do any of you west or east coast folks have any wise words to share on

When my insurance started paying they told me I had to keep my urines clean
to keep them paying. Well, I finally have for the past 9 months. Now they
say that since I have not used in 9 months I am cured, so to speak. It’s a
lose, lose situation.
Just venting helped! Thanks for listening and any suggestions will be
considered and appreciated.

Callie,

Request a written statement from TennCare as to their decision.  You might
also want to determine if your clinic doctor will indicate in writing that you
stopping methadone maintenance is against medical advice.

Once you receive the letter of explanation from TennCare send that and a
covering letter of yours to Dr., Westley Clarke and Mr. Charles Curie at SAMHSA
informing them that this is what your state is telling you to do and you know
you are not ready and may never be ready to cease methadone maintenance.  Also
copy NAMA on your letter and make sure you have a cc: NAMA at the bottom of
your letter so Clarke and Curie know that NAMA is being informed of this matter.

See if you can obtain the contact addresses for Dr. Clarke and Mr. Curie from
the SAMHSA web page, <http://www.samhsa.gov/about/contact_frame.html>.  You
may have to look around a bit or just call the office of the director and get
the addresses, full titles and contact information from that office.   Once you
have the letter of explanation from TennCare we can discuss this further. And
keep me informed of what is happening.  You can do that by personal email.

You can also vile a grievance report with NAMA.  Get a pdf for the greivance
report and a medical release from
http://www.methadone.org/grievance_report.html

Your clinic may only accept their own medical release so pick up a some of
them as you will have to authorize contact with the state, your clinic, SAMHSA
and NAMA otherwise all of the parties will not be able to communicate with each
other due to medical confidentiality issues.  Then take a deep breath and
drop a dose of ibogaine.  Just kidding…mmmmmm?

Regards and good luck.

Marc Emery is being held without bond on a marijuana charge! A marijuana offense!! Not murder, not heroin, not cocaine…..marijuana!
It is reported that there are questions about the circumstances of his arrest. No matter what these questions are it should be evident that holding this man without bond is unfair and unjust.
Also, him being charged with ‘trafficking drugs’ for passing a joint is insane! Is there no justice in the place where Marc is sitting tonight?
All Canadians, whether they support marijuana decriminalization or strongly oppose it, should be outraged that this gentle, non violent human is being treated as if he has no human rights or freedoms!

Some of you journalists and politicians should act on this! This is a serious threat to your freedom of speech rights also.

IS THERE ANYBODY OUT THERE????????!!!!!!!!!

PRESS RELEASE

March 23, 2004

CANADA’S ‘PRINCE OF POT’ MARC EMERY JAILED IN SASKATCHEWAN AFTER NDP RALLY
DENIED BAIL: SHOW CAUSE HEARING MARCH 24 AT 10AM, SASKATOON

TORONTO AND OTTAWA – Marc Emery, President of the British Columbia Marijuana
Party, was arrested and jailed on charges of allegedly trafficking marijuana by
passing a cannabis cigarette, or ‘joint’ late last night.  Emery was also denied
bail at a hearing this morning.  He is being held in Saskatoon pending a show
cause hearing tomorrow at 10am CST.

Emery, often referred to as the ‘Prince of Pot’, is currently in the middle of a
coast-to-coast tour of Canadian colleges and universities to encourage young
voters to become active in the political process and, more particularly,
encourage them to vote for the Federal New Democratic Party. Emery recently sat
down with New Democratic Party leader Jack Layton who in an interview with
internet-broadcaster pot-tv.net, advocated modernizing our marijuana laws and
“creating a legal environment in which people can enjoy their marijuana in peace
and quiet … without having to worry about being criminalized.” Since this
interview, Emery has been a staunch Layton backer and proud NDP supporter
wherever he goes. His current cross-country tour is inspired by the NDP’s recent
policy declaration on modernizing Canada’s marijuana laws and a recent Stats
Canada study which shows 75% of 18-24 year olds did not vote in the 2000
election.

“According to bystanders, a group of people were peacefully assembled for an
hour before Marc Emery showed up,” said Tim Meehan, of Toronto-based Ontario
Consumers for Safe Access to Recreational Cannabis.  “Many questions remain
about the circumstances of Emery’s arrest.  Among them, was he targeted because
of the political nature of his speaking tour?  Emery has not faced any legal
troubles at other speaking stops during his current tour.”  Emery was the
primary target of police action when they arrived on the scene. Along with
Emery, local supporter Justin McGowan was also searched, detained, and charged
with cannabis possession.

Also at issue is the charge of ‘trafficking marijuana’. Under current law,
simply passing or sharing a marijuana cigarette with a friend or loved one is
defined as ‘drug trafficking’. This is a serious flaw in the current legal
system, one which has been raised repeatedly by the New Democratic Party in its
opposition to the current decriminalization legislation. Emery finds himself
ironically the victim of the laws which he is currently fighting to change, in
so far as his behaviour in sharing a marijuana cigarette with other individuals
has been characterized as ‘trafficking’ and this characterization has been used
to detain Emery in jail and deprive him of his normal rights and freedoms for
over thirty-six hours. Canadians should be reminded that even if Bill C-10, the
so-called marijuana decriminalization bill, is passed, police would still retain
the criminal power to arrest people and brand them drug dealers — for simply
sharing a joint. “Currently, even simply giving marijuana for no money (“passing
a joint”) is considered trafficking. Bill [C-10] should be amended so that
non-commercial transfers of up to 30 grams of marijuana not be considered
trafficking,” according to a New Democratic Party statement.
(http://tinyurl.com/3527d)

“[Emery] doesn’t want people to come away from this thinking ‘poor Marc’. This
is about Canadians and our marijuana laws. The misapplication of these laws and
the discretionary pretext they provide to police, as evidenced through [Emery’s]
situation, should be cause for concern to all Canadians. This whole tour has
been about raising awareness of the harmful and failed nature of our
prohibition-era laws and getting young people involved in the political
process,” said Jody Pressman, coordinator of Emery’s tour across the country in
promotion of the NDP.

Emery was scheduled to speak at the University of Alberta in Edmonton on March
24, but due to his arrest, noted medical marijuana crusader Grant Krieger will
speak in his place. Emery and his team stand committed to promoting the NDP and
their policy of removing marijuana from the criminal justice system.

Holy shit that’s fucking NUTS Callie. I feel for you. Move to NYC. YOu can
take it as long as you’d like I think- of course, you’d need different
insurance of course.
This really is nuts. Can you afford a lawyer? You really, really should get

Google around online and see if there is some group that focuses on this
sort of issue- I’d be willing to bet there is at least one, if not a lot
more.

When my insurance started paying they told me I had to keep my urines clean
to keep them paying. Well, I finally have for the past 9 months. Now they

“Sliding scale” clinics could be the way to go, they’re a bitch to find down here, pay clinics ‘didn’t know’ about them.  Howard has posted some methadone advoc sites, I imagine they would be a good place to start if you have to start shopping around for a new clinic.  I didn’t even know methadone clinics would take insurance.  Good luck.

I was handed notice at Methadone clinic last week that my insurance has decided I do not need Methadone Maintenance anymore. Reason given was “According to the records your provider sent to us, our Doctor feels Methadone Maintenance is no longer needed.”
I of course got angry…….then filed an appeal. My Tenncare made me an appointment to have an assessment done which I had today.
It took grand total of 15 minutes. 10 of those minutes was the MSSW telling me how she did not believe in Methadone Maintenance and that she could not recommend that my treatment be continued. She said she feels 6 years is long enough and that ‘we’ should try something else. I asked her what she had in mind for ‘us’ to do since I have has inpatient treatment 7 times with no success and she said “you have not had intensive outpatient treatment”.
To make a long story short, I am fighting a losing battle I think. I will continue my methadone no, matter if insurance pays or not but I am fortunate enough to have a job where I can continue by paying.
There are a LOT of other folks on TennCare who will not be able to keep their Methadone if the insurance quits paying.
We are so behind here in the South!

PRESS RELEASE

March 23, 2004

CANADA’S ‘PRINCE OF POT’ MARC EMERY JAILED IN SASKATCHEWAN AFTER NDP RALLY
DENIED BAIL: SHOW CAUSE HEARING MARCH 24 AT 10AM, SASKATOON

TORONTO AND OTTAWA – Marc Emery, President of the British Columbia Marijuana
Party, was arrested and jailed on charges of allegedly trafficking marijuana by
passing a cannabis cigarette, or ‘joint’ late last night.  Emery was also denied
bail at a hearing this morning.  He is being held in Saskatoon pending a show
cause hearing tomorrow at 10am CST.

Emery, often referred to as the ‘Prince of Pot’, is currently in the middle of a
coast-to-coast tour of Canadian colleges and universities to encourage young
voters to become active in the political process and, more particularly,
encourage them to vote for the Federal New Democratic Party. Emery recently sat
down with New Democratic Party leader Jack Layton who in an interview with
internet-broadcaster pot-tv.net, advocated modernizing our marijuana laws and
“creating a legal environment in which people can enjoy their marijuana in peace
and quiet … without having to worry about being criminalized.” Since this
interview, Emery has been a staunch Layton backer and proud NDP supporter
wherever he goes. His current cross-country tour is inspired by the NDP’s recent
policy declaration on modernizing Canada’s marijuana laws and a recent Stats
Canada study which shows 75% of 18-24 year olds did not vote in the 2000
election.

“According to bystanders, a group of people were peacefully assembled for an
hour before Marc Emery showed up,” said Tim Meehan, of Toronto-based Ontario
Consumers for Safe Access to Recreational Cannabis.  “Many questions remain
about the circumstances of Emery’s arrest.  Among them, was he targeted because
of the political nature of his speaking tour?  Emery has not faced any legal
troubles at other speaking stops during his current tour.”  Emery was the
primary target of police action when they arrived on the scene. Along with
Emery, local supporter Justin McGowan was also searched, detained, and charged
with cannabis possession.

Also at issue is the charge of ‘trafficking marijuana’. Under current law,
simply passing or sharing a marijuana cigarette with a friend or loved one is
defined as ‘drug trafficking’. This is a serious flaw in the current legal
system, one which has been raised repeatedly by the New Democratic Party in its
opposition to the current decriminalization legislation. Emery finds himself
ironically the victim of the laws which he is currently fighting to change, in
so far as his behaviour in sharing a marijuana cigarette with other individuals
has been characterized as ‘trafficking’ and this characterization has been used
to detain Emery in jail and deprive him of his normal rights and freedoms for
over thirty-six hours. Canadians should be reminded that even if Bill C-10, the
so-called marijuana decriminalization bill, is passed, police would still retain
the criminal power to arrest people and brand them drug dealers — for simply
sharing a joint. “Currently, even simply giving marijuana for no money (“passing
a joint”) is considered trafficking. Bill [C-10] should be amended so that
non-commercial transfers of up to 30 grams of marijuana not be considered
trafficking,” according to a New Democratic Party statement.
(http://tinyurl.com/3527d)

“[Emery] doesn’t want people to come away from this thinking ‘poor Marc’. This
is about Canadians and our marijuana laws. The misapplication of these laws and
the discretionary pretext they provide to police, as evidenced through [Emery’s]
situation, should be cause for concern to all Canadians. This whole tour has
been about raising awareness of the harmful and failed nature of our
prohibition-era laws and getting young people involved in the political
process,” said Jody Pressman, coordinator of Emery’s tour across the country in
promotion of the NDP.

Emery was scheduled to speak at the University of Alberta in Edmonton on March
24, but due to his arrest, noted medical marijuana crusader Grant Krieger will
speak in his place. Emery and his team stand committed to promoting the NDP and
their policy of removing marijuana from the criminal justice system.

Subject: RE: [ibogaine] ibogaine and panic attacks

Hi Jon, Sandy,
I think i can relate to Sandys experiences in that
ibogaine
can ‘break’ open your head and leting out some very painfull feelings.
I
feel very ‘cracked’ open after several ibogaine sessions with alot of
physicall feelings. I was under the impression through my experiences
and
what I’ve read about the nature of repressed trauma is that this is what
psychadelics do. They can open your minds defences and allow repressed
traumas or emotions to surface. I think this seems to cause a lot of
stress
and anxiety.
I think there’s a great difference between ibogaine and
LSD
in that ibogaine tends to bring an understanding of issues that arrise.
Though it can also leave you with unresolved feelings rising to
consiousness.  I still take anti-depressants every day to keep my stress
levels down.  Perhaps that’s why they say that multiple sessions are
more
beneficial.  It’s hard to tell as  everyone is different.  I ended up
feeling much worse after my second ibogaine session  I came out of it
with
a
lot of anger from childhood being released and ended up falling out with
my
girlfriend.  I was still drining heavily then and didn’t really have
enought
awareness of the fact that I was taking out my anger towards my parents
on
other people.  I managed to let go of much of that anger in a subsequent
session.   I think it’s would be very helpfull to have loving and
supportive
friends and your lifes cicumstances are important.

Hi Luke,

Yes, friends are what will get you through.

When I hear you say things like “letting go of anger,” warning
bells sounds. My experience, and that of many others, is that you usually
have to wrestle a little with the anger first. Before you can forgive your
parents you have to really let yourself hate them first. Then the loving
comes naturally – “I forgive my parents for not being perfect.” It’s easy.
But you have
to allow yourself to go into the hatred first.

Buddhists, Reiki and healing people, and affirmation or NLP fans will tell
you you can let go of anger just through a few
little exercises or meditation. It’s bullshit. It’s sounds good. It
convinces the mind (especially when the fear of really feeling is high)
but
it’s bullshit. Over the last few years I’ve been in a hundred groups with
just about every Buddhist, Reiki artist and NLP practitioner you could
imagine. And every one I’ve seen reduced to chaos
rapidly through the fact that they are each, without exception in my
experience,
holding down enough anger to kill a bull elephant. Every single one, man.
They’re terrified of feeling it and they’ve allowed their mind to seduce
them away from feeling and expression what’s actually going on inside.

You can’t rationalize feelings away. It won’t work, they resurface and
will
drag your physical body down.

As for Reiki, hands-on healing and all this stuff – very little use either
for anger. (useful for other things). All this stuff can do here is heal
on
a superficial level, like a sticking plaster. I live in a new age
centre in the UK and am surrounded by healers. I can see the energy fields
around the bodies they’re working on and all the energy usually does is
close the throat chakra – blocking expression, blocking feeling. You feel
light, you feel spiritual, you think it’s great, but actually God has just
shut
your circuits down for a while cause you were overloading, and in too many
feelings to function.

Affirmations and NLP have their place in therapy but you can’t use them
for
anger properly. Anger management, yes. But not actually to give you what
anger will give you when you express it.

The body experiences anger when it’s been invaded. It’s natural and
healing.

Should have put here “when its boundaries have been invaded.” I didn’t want
to imply necessarily sexual invasion

Thanks

Nick

When that anger couldn’t be expressed, because you were too young, because
it wasn’t appropriate, or because you’d been conditioned out of allowing
it,
it goes inside the body and resurfaces when something triggers it. This is
healthy. Alan Lowen, father of bioenergetics, calls anger the healing
emotion. It restores the body on a physical level after it’s been invaded.
The feeling of anger is totally healthy, it shows that your body and your
emotions are working properly. If you just try to meditate it away,
rationalize it, chant it out, affirm it away, then you miss. You miss the
reintegration of the body that has to follow invasion. The anger comes up
again and you forgive people left, right and centre, and you miss again.
So
on and so forth until finally the body becomes host to illness because it
has never actually been allowed to heal the way it’s designed to.

So, my advice to you is, find yourself a safe, supportive environment and
SCREAM your guts out. THEN you can forgive people, affirm away, or repeat
endlessly “I am not angry” and it will work.

Nick

The thing is is that the painfull/traumatizing/anxiety
feelings are always going to be there unless they’re resolved. That’s
why
we
use alcohol/pain-killers/meds to reduce these feelings.  Whether
ibogaine
can relsove all that is another story but it will bring these thingss to
consiousness. Personnaly I found it very rewarding but it has been a
very
difficult time emotionally

Hey,

To Brooke and all, I’d recommend picking up a certain book for the 2-3 days prior to the trip–  “The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle. This guy used to get panic attacks and one night woke up into a major attack which led to a breakthru of sorts…

The thing is, reading his take on ‘reality’, the NOW, our internal dialogue etc is f-ckin’ trippy as hell- I thought this was maybe just me flipping out on his words, but I’ve met others who’ve confirmed this… he pulls these zen rabbits out of his hat and lets you peak behind the veil, if ever so briefly… very empowering, lucid and in ‘plain talk’ -not like reading koans or anything….

Also, his take on things is very suited for coping with the anxiety/panic and the drama that
unfolds during an ibogaine rebirth… to recap, you’re no more your persona than you are the id card in your wallet and just observing things from a little off to the side, in the midst of it all, should help you pierce thru….

all the best,
Adam

ps I second Brett’s suggestion that you don’t do this at home.. there’s something to be said about being in another environment- it’s not just because you get to embark on a journey but you also get to journey back home.

I’ve got your contact now, so am psyching myself up for the big event.  BTW, I noticed that you recommended that I don’t do the drug at home – why is that?  I can probably find a relatively ‘safe’ space, but I thought that triggers in my flat might be good for the experience.  Thoughts?

How very interesting!
I do elderly and end of life care and some of my patients take piracetum to help with Alzheimers and a  few that have Parkinsons take it.
It does not have any really outstanding effect on the patients but no long term studies have been done either. I think the feeling is that it does not hurt and may help so use is continued!

Tomo7,

I wouldn’t mix ibogaine with anything to enhance it. Grass seems to calm it a bit/enhance it slightly, ginger tea helps with nausea, some people will take a benzo but that is about it as far as mixing anything with iboga. (harmaline has been tried). Yes, sure if the diet is right, all the nutrients are there for a full and balanced neurotransmitter system… set and setting is in place, mood is right, procedure is followed without distractions… it will have a big effect on the experience. So if someone was going to be off all unnecessary meds, eat right, got rid of the un-natural foods, sodas, coffee, cold-cuts…, be well rested, calm,  take B complex, fish/flax, you can toss in dl-phenylalanie, tryptophan, lecithin… they are going to do better than if their last meal was a ham sandwich and last thing they saw was the evening news and HARD ROCK or rushed home to do the iboga after work… Iboga time is your time, if you are not going do the iboga right you are disrespecting
yourself and the iboga – it will let you know too… Knowing how to meditate, clearing the head of thoughts, relaxing, breathing and doing the 3rd eye thingie helps to break through. Simply knowing to stay calm and not agitate (get up/move about) will change the experience. You want more colorful use a more natural flavor of iboga than ibogaine HCL, or mix the 2 – that is the only mixing I would do.

If one is aiming at the psycho-spiritual benefits, rather than addiction
intervention, what would you suggest for complimentary “colorizers”? In
the ayahuasca journeys, Mao inhibitors such as Syrian Rue or local herb
sources of harmaline will accomplish this.

I know that our glorious ibo metabolites are not the same biochemicals,
but would Mao inhibitors or certain nutrients be helpful? If one could
safely build up neurotransmitter levels of Acetylcholine, Dopamin, Gaba,
Serine, or others prior to hosting Bwiti within your inner mind, would
that be a Good Thing? Would an upper strain of Sativa help early phases?

When I can next revisit that experience within lucid dream time, I will
get the most milage out of every psychic micro burst if I can prep myself
intelligently. My clients will appreciate more understanding of these
preparatory techniques as well. Thanks for your advice thus far.

Hi Jon, Sandy,
I think i can relate to Sandys experiences in that ibogaine can ‘break’ open your head and leting out some very painfull feelings.  I feel very ‘cracked’ open after several ibogaine sessions with alot of physicall feelings. I was under the impression through my experiences and what I’ve read about the nature of repressed trauma is that this is what psychadelics do. They can open your minds defences and allow repressed traumas or emotions to surface. I think this seems to cause a lot of stress and anxiety.
I think there’s a great difference between ibogaine and LSD in that ibogaine tends to bring an understanding of issues that arrise.  Though it can also leave you with unresolved feelings rising to consiousness.  I still take anti-depressants every day to keep my stress levels down.  Perhaps that’s why they say that multiple sessions are more beneficial.  It’s hard to tell as  everyone is different.  I ended up feeling much worse after my second ibogaine session  I came out of it with a lot of anger from childhood being released and ended up falling out with my girlfriend.  I was still drining heavily then and didn’t really have enought awareness of the fact that I was taking out my anger towards my parents on other people.  I managed to let go of much of that anger in a subsequent session.   I think it’s would be very helpfull to have loving and supportive friends and your lifes cicumstances are important.
The thing is is that the painfull/traumatizing/anxiety feelings are always going to be there unless they’re resolved. That’s why we use alcohol/pain-killers/meds to reduce these feelings.  Whether ibogaine can relsove all that is another story but it will bring these thingss to consiousness. Personnaly I found it very rewarding but it has been a very difficult time emotionally

Hey there Jon.  Thought I’d chime in on this issue as I had panic attacks for 3-4 years in my 20’s.  They finally went completely away at about age 30 and I never really had another one until after my third ibo experience.  My first two trips were really helpful and broke my pain meds addiction (altho I gotta admit I’m a relapser again – had too many pain issues to deal with.)  Anyway, my third trip really did “crack” my head open and I began to have the panic attacks along with some other health problems.  I felt like humpty-dumpty who fell off the fucking wall, for real…

Now three years or so later, yeah I’m relapsing but at a very reduced rate, and I don’t really feel all that bad about it.  I don’t seem as controlled by the stuff, but I still look forward to a buzz every evening.  Lastly, it’s taken about that long for the panic attacks to subside again, and other meds played a big part I think (zanex, zoloft and klonopin.)  I know what you mean about finally getting stable.  I would still love to do another round of ibogaine, not necessarily to get clean, but just because it definitely changed me for the better even if still using.  However, I just have a REAL STRONG idea that my mind is just not up for it.  I envy folks who can take it repeatedly.  I really wish I could.  And I hope in the future to just try some really low doses just to see if it made the opiates less appealling again.  But I have a bit of rough ibo that I just took a taste of one night and that sent me into high anxiety…so I guess it’s still gonna have to wait.

Anyway, that’s my story.  I sure think you have to follow your intuition rather than any external advice when it comes to psychedelics, ibogaine in particular.

Best wishes to all you ibo freaks…       Sandy Watson

I dunno if this is what Callie was talking about, but one of the things that has kept me from taking ibogaine thus far (apart from the cost and logistics of getting hold of it) is fear of a bad experience. Not a bad experience as in “it didn’t do what i thought/wanted it to”, but a bad experience as in completely freaking the fuck out.

I’ve had a number of very traumatising experiences on LSD; one of which left me with a pretty severe anxiety disorder (panic attacks, intense fear of going insane, etc) for a number of years afterwards. I also had a moderately traumatising experience on 2CT7; not anywhere near as severe as the LSD ones, but still something I really don’t care to repeat.

I find I’m able to use mushrooms generally without any bad shit going down, but I’ve (finally..ehe) learned that I have to be VERY careful with more powerful psychedelics.

At any rate, there’s a large part of me that really would like to try ibogaine (or maybe an iboga extract), especially because I think it could help with my cigarette addiction, but also just because it sounds so fascinating; but I’m very wary of ending back up in a psychiatric hospital.

As much as I love Syd Barrett’s music, I’m not too keen on emulating his lifestyle…ehe. I’m finally at a point in my life where I’m relatively stable (don’t use hard drugs any more, haven’t attempted suicide in years, have a decent job,etc) and part of me is really afraid to risk losing this.

And, while i’m ranting about this..ehe… another thing that has me afraid of doing ibogaine/iboga is that i’d have to stop taking my meds before hand. i’m currently taking effexor and remeron, which i think have been very useful in getting me to the reasonably stable point i’m at now. and so, in addition to being afraid that the ibogaine will make me completely flip my shit, i’m afraid that going off the meds will revert me to the suicidal lump that i was years ago…

anyway, sorry for going off there, but i’ve been needing to get that out for sometime, i think….and I’d be very interested to hear what you folks think…

thanx,

jon

Thanks for the continued support, Brett (and everyone, really!)

I’ve got your contact now, so am psyching myself up for the big event.  BTW, I noticed that you recommended that I don’t do the drug at home – why is that?  I can probably find a relatively ‘safe’ space, but I thought that triggers in my flat might be good for the experience.  Thoughts?

That is exactly what you want to do, lose it (the horrible choices and deeds).. Anyway, it isn’t like a garbage truck comes along and dumps all your shit on your head, event by event in excrutiating and painful detail – relax! Marc Emory said something abou it being the Ghost of Christmas Past, something like that, very non-judgmental, or there are parables, or any number of visions and dialogs in different ways.

“Can anyone here assure me that they’re of a similar mindset, and
somehow survived the experience
mentally/emotionally/psychically/spiritually intact?”

That is the whole point of taking iboga in the first place, to be “mentally/emotionally/psychically/spiritually intact”,  that is what iboga does.

Take 3 yogic breaths, say Ohhhhmmmmmmmmm, and take the iboga. .I hate thinking about taking it also (cuz yuck), so I don’t.

As someone who digested 2.5 grams of Ibogaine HCL (all at once), while “only” addicted to Nicotine, I must say that Ibogaine only did me good in many respects. Although the “trip” was unpleasant to say the least, it did me wonders In-terms of psychological maturity and enhanced the value I attributed to life/love/friendship and health. It also made me humble and my relations with people and the importance of nature strengthened dramatically.
If you consider psychological stability a positive phenomena, (and many do), I must say I was relatively stable before Ibogaine. But Ibogaine allowed me to dive into my self consciousness and see the hang-ups and the faults I have ignored. I other words, it was like pressing 10 years of psychotherapy into 24 hours. Later, I slowly digested the info for a long time thereafter.

I have treated over 5o people with Ibogaine HCL since 1988. In terms of psychological problems, I have not encountered people who complained of   flips and lost of direction. On the contrary, the vast majority, even those who had multiple conditions, said that they felt Ibogaine was constructive for their psychic.

Hi Brooke,

I come from a multi-trauma’ed background – separation from birth parents,
abuse, hospitalization – pretty much a horror trip (or so therapists will
tell you). And I’ve had acutely negative experiences on acid, resulting in
me not touching it for nearly 20 years.

I took some rootbark last night and had my usual “mild horror trip” – a lot
of fear around being alone, underlying existential fears about waking up and
finding I was the only person alive, and fear of encounters with repressed
sides of my personality, wandering around my psyche like demons. But,
basically, it was a benign and learning experience. The drug just gives me
the chance to see where I’m holding myself back and how I can direct myself
in life and therapy. And, basically, I have always been attracted to the
dark side as well as the light. It’s ok to check out the torture chambers
occasionally. Like this you get to really know yourself.

Ibo’s really not like acid – acid just lays its trip on you whether you want
it or not. Ibogaine has intelligence. It shows you what you need to grow –
maybe the mind judges stuff it experiences as “bad”, maybe “good.” But
that’s just the judgments. What I would advise is that you do it with
someone you know (who’s not taking it) and hold their hand on the experience
til you feel safe. Might sound childish but any level of contact with
another human will help you feel more secure in a new environment. Also, of
course, be aware how fear can just suck you in to its little mind game and
go for directing the experience a little if it feels good. You also need to
be secure inside yourself before you start that this is something YOU
actually want to do, not something others think would be good for you, peer
pressure whatever. And, if it isn’t, don’t bother and don’t beat yourself up
for it.

What I also liked about ibogaine, as opposed to acid, is that there’s
usually a happy ending. If you get torture, hey, it’s feels great
afterwards! I mean, real elation. And then you know it, you know what it
looks like to go through that doorway. You get awareness. And awareness
always diminishes fear. Horror trips on ibo always pass and afterwards I
usually just feel my connection with everything and everybody.

All the best

Nick

Tomo7,

I wouldn’t mix ibogaine with anything to enhance it. Grass seems to calm it a bit/enhance it slightly, ginger tea helps with nausea, some people will take a benzo but that is about it as far as mixing anything with iboga. (harmaline has been tried). Yes, sure if the diet is right, all the nutrients are there for a full and balanced neurotransmitter system… set and setting is in place, mood is right, procedure is followed without distractions… it will have a big effect on the experience. So if someone was going to be off all unnecessary meds, eat right, got rid of the un-natural foods, sodas, coffee, cold-cuts…, be well rested, calm,  take B complex, fish/flax, you can toss in dl-phenylalanie, tryptophan, lecithin… they are going to do better than if their last meal was a ham sandwich and last thing they saw was the evening news and HARD ROCK or rushed home to do the iboga after work… Iboga time is your time, if you are not going do the iboga right you are disrespecting yourself and the iboga – it will let you know too… Knowing how to meditate, clearing the head of thoughts, relaxing, breathing and doing the 3rd eye thingie helps to break through. Simply knowing to stay calm and not agitate (get up/move about) will change the experience. You want more colorful use a more natural flavor of iboga than ibogaine HCL, or mix the 2 – that is the only mixing I would do.

sides of my personality, wandering around my psyche like demons. But,
basically, it was a benign and learning experience. The drug just gives me
the chance to see where I’m holding myself back and how I can direct myself
in life and therapy. And, basically, I have always been attracted to the
dark side as well as the light. It’s ok to check out the torture chambers
occasionally. Like this you get to really know yourself.

Ibo’s really not like acid – acid just lays its trip on you whether you want
it or not. Ibogaine has intelligence. It shows you what you need to grow –
maybe the mind judges stuff it experiences as “bad”, maybe “good.” But
that’s just the judgments. What I would advise is that you do it with
someone you know (who’s not taking it) and hold their hand on the experience
til you feel safe. Might sound childish but any level of contact with
another human will help you feel more secure in a new environment. Also, of
course, be aware how fear can just suck you in to its little mind game and
go for directing the experience a little if it feels good. You also need to
be secure inside yourself before you start that this is something YOU
actually want to do, not something others think would be good for you, peer
pressure whatever. And, if it isn’t, don’t bother and don’t beat yourself up
for it.

What I also liked about ibogaine, as opposed to acid, is that there’s
usually a happy ending. If you get torture, hey, it’s feels great
afterwards! I mean, real elation. And then you know it, you know what it
looks like to go through that doorway. You get awareness. And awareness
always diminishes fear. Horror trips on ibo always pass and afterwards I
usually just feel my connection with everything and everybody.

All the best

Nick

“Once a year I hire a crew from the landscaper because it remains the
best-run business of its kind in town. The boss always comes by to check. He
too is clean and sober but the recovery that the professor radiates is not
available to him. Not because he wouldn’t do anything to have it, but
because abstinence is not the cure for his affliction. Treatment has helped
him find ways to cope that have enabled him finally to get the correctional
people out of his life. But I see in him deep sorrow and loss, and I despise
a piece of what I do. This man remains unwell and doubly afflicted because

Hi all,
This above quote is from the amazing article below. It’s just too
rational though I’m afraid, for it to resonate with the people who matter,
the ones who continue to support the war in one way or a bunch of others.

In Praise of Laudanum

For some, “addiction” may be the only cure.

By Jim Pittaway
One of the elements of dramatic tension in the wonderful Master and
Commander series of books is the relationship between the brilliant and
resourceful ship’s surgeon, Dr. Maturin, and the laudanum with which he
self-medicates. Author Patrick O’Brian is widely praised for the
authenticity of his rendering of the language, behaviors, and mores of
Napoleonic times, but here he projects contemporary issues onto his
characters and their circumstances. A real Dr. Maturin, like his
contemporary Capt. Meriwether Lewis—with his famous “melancholia”—would have
been perfectly free to medicate himself to his heart’s content without
enduring either social opprobrium or shame and self-doubt. If Rush Limbaugh
lived in any other era, we would not be having a national conversation about
his behavior and the state would never be pursuing his medical records for
evidence of crimes he may or may not have perpetrated upon himself.

Over the decade I have spent as a practitioner licensed by my state to
treat, among other things, addiction and addiction-related disorders, I have
become increasingly troubled by things other than my patients’ actual use.
As I have transitioned from in-patient addiction treatment and private
practice to working with head-injured and often severely disabled patients,
I have become less doctrinaire about use itself and more aware of
complexities of circumstance as they affect individuals. The cases causing
me the greatest concern have one common element: they involve pain
medication.

Until the great government power-grab of Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal,
Americans were assumed competent to treat themselves for chronic or acute
pain, as well as for what we now imperfectly describe as chemical imbalances
of the brain—such as bipolar disorder—by simply stopping at a corner
apothecary and purchasing such tincture of opium as they judged appropriate
for their needs. This actually went on for centuries without generating
serious social or moral problems. Undoubtedly, many individuals became
“addicted” and the opportunity for drug “abuse” abounded, but such excesses
were the business of family and community. No tyrannical European king or
dictator even dreamed of so intruding on the private lives of individuals as
to interfere with access to pain relief and psychological equilibrium. At
least not until FDR’s Harry Anslinger, of the Bureau of Narcotics and
Dangerous Drugs, set about criminalizing vast tracts of human behavior in
his push to build a crime-fighting empire on behalf of the state whose power
he and his boss were so dedicated to expanding.

Sounds like we have similare ‘issues’.  I forgot to mention I’m on Effexor
aswell-would I really have to stop it before I took the Iboga?That scares

The ibogaine dossier treatment section
<http://www.ibogaine.desk.nl/treatment.html> covers both positive and
not
so positive patient responses.  Treatment
episode <http://ibogaine.desk.nl/experience-1297.html> was of an early
st
kitts when I believe their were dose escalating up from what were
pre-therapeutic
doses.  The patients was very angry and trying to get her money back.
I
provided some response in defense of the treatment outcome.  And, the
answer is
yes, you are always going to get some patient who is dissatisfied but,
not
many.

I dunno if this is what Callie was talking about, but one of the things
that has kept me from taking ibogaine thus far (apart from the cost and
logistics of getting hold of it) is fear of a bad experience. Not a bad
experience as in “it didn’t do what i thought/wanted it to”, but a bad
experience as in completely freaking the fuck out.

I’ve had a number of very traumatising experiences on LSD; one of which
left me with a pretty severe anxiety disorder (panic attacks, intense
fear
of going insane, etc) for a number of years afterwards. I also had a
moderately traumatising experience on 2CT7; not anywhere near as severe
as
the LSD ones, but still something I really don’t care to repeat.

I find I’m able to use mushrooms generally without any bad shit going
down, but I’ve (finally..ehe) learned that I have to be VERY careful
with
more powerful psychedelics.

At any rate, there’s a large part of me that really would like to try
ibogaine (or maybe an iboga extract), especially because I think it
could
help with my cigarette addiction, but also just because it sounds so
fascinating; but I’m very wary of ending back up in a psychiatric
hospital.

As much as I love Syd Barrett’s music, I’m not too keen on emulating his
lifestyle…ehe. I’m finally at a point in my life where I’m relatively
stable (don’t use hard drugs any more, haven’t attempted suicide in
years,
have a decent job,etc) and part of me is really afraid to risk losing
this.

And, while i’m ranting about this..ehe… another thing that has me
afraid
of doing ibogaine/iboga is that i’d have to stop taking my meds before
hand. i’m currently taking effexor and remeron, which i think have been
very useful in getting me to the reasonably stable point i’m at now. and
so, in addition to being afraid that the ibogaine will make me
completely
flip my shit, i’m afraid that going off the meds will revert me to the
suicidal lump that i was years ago…

anyway, sorry for going off there, but i’ve been needing to get that out
for sometime, i think….and I’d be very interested to hear what you
folks
think…

thanx,

jon

btw… Brett, if you’re reading this, I know I’ve been a shit about
keeping in touch with you… i think what i’m talking about here is part
of the reason why. to be honest, i’m not very good at keeping in touch
with people in general… but one of my psychopathologies that i’ve yet
to
really get over completely is the whole denial thing… like, if there’s
something that’s causing me some kind of stress, i have a tendency to
just
pretend it doesn’t exist. i mean, i’m definately better about it than i
was back when i was a junky, but i’m certainly far from completely
better
about it. for what it’s worth, i’m sorry.

I have tried to express similar fears…the few ‘darker’ trips I’ve had
have been incredibly terrifying, and the sensation of death of
general ‘evil’ have pushed me very close to the brink.

I know that much of this has to do with repressed guilt and a general
sense of anger with life and myself – manifesting as the demons and
torment in my visions – but I’m concerned that by reliving all of my
horrible choices and deeds at once, I may just ‘lose’ it, no matter how
supportive and clarifying my watcher is.

I’ve always been a bit of a high-strung guy…while the rest of the
laid-back west coast population can smoke a ton of weed and ‘chill’ and
giggle for hours, I have a tiny puff and things get very wonky – VERY
quickly.  My thoughts and perception of stimuli are fairly profound
with a ‘clear’ head – when I’m on a mild psychadelic, it’s only
compounded exponentially.

Can anyone here assure me that they’re of a similar mindset, and
somehow survived the experience
mentally/emotionally/psychically/spiritually intact?

Hi Brooke,

I come from a multi-trauma’ed background – separation from birth parents,
abuse, hospitalization – pretty much a horror trip (or so therapists will
tell you). And I’ve had acutely negative experiences on acid, resulting in
me not touching it for nearly 20 years.

I took some rootbark last night and had my usual “mild horror trip” – a lot
of fear around being alone, underlying existential fears about waking up and
finding I was the only person alive, and fear of encounters with repressed
sides of my personality, wandering around my psyche like demons. But,
basically, it was a benign and learning experience. The drug just gives me
the chance to see where I’m holding myself back and how I can direct myself
in life and therapy. And, basically, I have always been attracted to the

Hey there Jon.  Thought I’d chime in on this issue as I had panic attacks for 3-4 years in my 20’s.  They finally went completely away at about age 30 and I never really had another one until after my third ibo experience.  My first two trips were really helpful and broke my pain meds addiction (altho I gotta admit I’m a relapser again – had too many pain issues to deal with.)  Anyway, my third trip really did “crack” my head open and I began to have the panic attacks along with some other health problems.  I felt like humpty-dumpty who fell off the fucking wall, for real…
Now three years or so later, yeah I’m relapsing but at a very reduced rate, and I don’t really feel all that bad about it.  I don’t seem as controlled by the stuff, but I still look forward to a buzz every evening.  Lastly, it’s taken about that long for the panic attacks to subside again, and other meds played a big part I think (zanex, zoloft and klonopin.)  I know what you mean about finally getting stable.  I would still love to do another round of ibogaine, not necessarily to get clean, but just because it definitely changed me for the better even if still using.  However, I just have a REAL STRONG idea that my mind is just not up for it.  I envy folks who can take it repeatedly.  I really wish I could.  And I hope in the future to just try some really low doses just to see if it made the opiates less appealling again.  But I have a bit of rough ibo that I just took a taste of one night and that sent me into high anxiety…so I guess it’s still gonna have to wait.
Anyway, that’s my story.  I sure think you have to follow your intuition rather than any external advice when it comes to psychedelics, ibogaine in particular.
Best wishes to all you ibo freaks…       Sandy Watson

Didn’t Tim L. talk about wondering how much information/reality the human mind can stand? How much knowledge can the human brain/mind take before it is overwhelmed?  Very serious stuff to consider I guess.
I’ve had bad/panic type experiences on LSD (the person I dropped with was convinced that his was cut with poison and a few hours later when I finally got distance from them I started thinking “I took the same thing they did” and bam, panic etc.  Yes, on LSD and X;, but never on natural ones like shrooms or mescal/peyote; iboga wasn’t like any of these, it definitely has it’s own character and personality–.  To be honest, I was scarred shitless beforehand of going through it. Sickness is bad enough by itself, sick while tripping (takes me back to my Laam cold turkey kick (4 hours of sleep in 6 weeks–beyond unspeakable pain); so yeah, iboga lasting as long as it does…disserves not fear but respect.  My biggest fear with it is biting off more then can chew then being stuck for so long in that harsh lesson; respect it, learn it, but fear it? I haven’t felt ‘out of control’ on iboga; Ego seems to be able to be present, discarded or kept at your choice…too often we  put back on our armor out of habit after the experience, i went to jail afterwards and that definitely made shit worse in that regard, more hardened, less trusting…which is the direct opposite of what iboga told me was the way……Sometimes a mind blinder is just what was needed.  I am a little biased in this but for me: lsd only scatters, iboga scatters then re-focus’s; it was very spiritual, but remember when I say this that the basics of Buddha:
1. All life is suffering
2. The cause of suffering is dukka (loosely trans. as desire)
3. The way to graduate from suffering is through compassion.
I would imagine a facilitator could give better information on how often people just loose it; i’d bet their aren’t many if everything is done in a respectful, non-arrogant, and teachable way.
I got hit with a bombshell today…Few weeks back had the roughest time I had yet and HAD to talk to someone….so not being experienced in international calls from Texas I call Sara (www.iboga.tk) and she was compassionate enough to talk to me for…lets see…(flipping through ‘war&piece’phone bill)….about 149 minutes…I felt much better afterwards and she didn稚 make a dime off of talking to me.  I had no idea…the phone bill came today…..$750   Stuff like that will make me like SdBarrett, not iboga : )  I think Marc Emery’s Christmas Past analogy is fitting, but I知 probably a little biased to that subject too.

That is the whole point of taking iboga in the first place, to be “mentally/emotionally/psychically/spiritually intact”,  that is what iboga does.

Take 3 yogic breaths, say Ohhhhmmmmmmmmm, and take the iboga. .I hate thinking about taking it also (cuz yuck), so I don’t.

“I know Ibogaine is not acid but acid and mescaline trips are the only ones I have personal experience with.”

Good, it isn’t anything like any of those. If you can imagine 4th dimensional dreaming, that would be a good description.

“just think it would be terrible to start tripping on Ibogaine and it be a scary, psychotic torture trip.”

OH MY GOD, THAT WOULD BE TERRIBLE!!!!!

Good thing you can open your eyes at any time or blink and change the station you are tuned into. You had me worried for a second. You are still stuck with a disgusting buzz, nausea, etc.

“I just am afraid I would go totally insane, permanently check out mentally if I had to honestly relive this.”

First, if you are not already insane ibogaine isn’t going to make you insane and no, you are not going to “check out” anywhere (that’s cheating)..

Ibogaine/iboga allows someone to re-intergrate past events. This is a helpful thing when you want the shit you did to stop keeping you from who you are, and happiness.

Iboga is peace, love, understanding and knowledge, a bit like ZEN in a pill. I remember my first time, I was ready for those demons, and there I was, they were a coming, any time now, so finally I visualized some demon looking creature and started to laugh at it. Iboga is also the truth and you will be shown, but not the way you normally see things, it is somewhat detached, matter of fact, lessons in parables that are YOU pick the answers to – it is really pretty wild, but not, it is all you. Addiction and all the things we hold onto so dearly fights like a cat being stuffed in a toilet bowl (for cleaning, it was at the suggestion of the dog, dumb dog forgot to warn me about my fingers around the edge of the lid). Anway, what I am saying is that fear keeps us stuck (wherever), ain’t nothing else better at breaking through than ibogaine. You will forgive yourself, you deserve it.

The events and issues come as they come. People tend to get what they need and can handle/process, some don’t get visions – sit there in a lit room and you will likely have none, but why?

You wil be just fine. The worst part about doing ibogaine is awfulizing about it… (stop that)..  As far as you fear reliving it, perhaps that is fear of being relieved of it…

Brett:

Thank you for your sensible suggestions for preparation and management of
an ibo experience. These are consistent with my own experience.

If one is aiming at the psycho-spiritual benefits, rather than addiction
intervention, what would you suggest for complimentary “colorizers”? In
the ayahuasca journeys, Mao inhibitors such as Syrian Rue or local herb
sources of harmaline will accomplish this.

I know that our glorious ibo metabolites are not the same biochemicals,
but would Mao inhibitors or certain nutrients be helpful?  If one could
safely build up neurotransmitter levels of Acetylcholine, Dopamin, Gaba,
Serine, or others prior to hosting Bwiti within your inner mind, would
that be a Good Thing? Would an upper strain of Sativa help early phases?

When I can next revisit that experience within lucid dream time, I will
get the most milage out of every psychic micro burst if I can prep myself
intelligently. My clients will appreciate more understanding of these
preparatory techniques as well.  Thanks for your advice thus far.

I have tried to express similar fears…the few ‘darker’ trips I’ve had
have been incredibly terrifying, and the sensation of death of
general ‘evil’ have pushed me very close to the brink.

I know that much of this has to do with repressed guilt and a general
sense of anger with life and myself – manifesting as the demons and
torment in my visions – but I’m concerned that by reliving all of my
horrible choices and deeds at once, I may just ‘lose’ it, no matter how
supportive and clarifying my watcher is.

I’ve always been a bit of a high-strung guy…while the rest of the
laid-back west coast population can smoke a ton of weed and ‘chill’ and
giggle for hours, I have a tiny puff and things get very wonky – VERY
quickly.  My thoughts and perception of stimuli are fairly profound
with a ‘clear’ head – when I’m on a mild psychadelic, it’s only
compounded exponentially.

Can anyone here assure me that they’re of a similar mindset, and
somehow survived the experience
mentally/emotionally/psychically/spiritually intact?

The ibogaine dossier treatment section
<http://www.ibogaine.desk.nl/treatment.html> covers both positive and not
so positive patient responses.  Treatment
episode <http://ibogaine.desk.nl/experience-1297.html> was of an early st
kitts when I believe their were dose escalating up from what were
pre-therapeutic
doses.  The patients was very angry and trying to get her money back.  I
provided some response in defense of the treatment outcome.  And, the
answer is
yes, you are always going to get some patient who is dissatisfied but, not
many.

I dunno if this is what Callie was talking about, but one of the things
that has kept me from taking ibogaine thus far (apart from the cost and
logistics of getting hold of it) is fear of a bad experience. Not a bad
experience as in “it didn’t do what i thought/wanted it to”, but a bad
experience as in completely freaking the fuck out.

I’ve had a number of very traumatising experiences on LSD; one of which
left me with a pretty severe anxiety disorder (panic attacks, intense fear
of going insane, etc) for a number of years afterwards. I also had a
moderately traumatising experience on 2CT7; not anywhere near as severe as
the LSD ones, but still something I really don’t care to repeat.

I find I’m able to use mushrooms generally without any bad shit going
down, but I’ve (finally..ehe) learned that I have to be VERY careful with
more powerful psychedelics.

At any rate, there’s a large part of me that really would like to try
ibogaine (or maybe an iboga extract), especially because I think it could
help with my cigarette addiction, but also just because it sounds so
fascinating; but I’m very wary of ending back up in a psychiatric
hospital.

As much as I love Syd Barrett’s music, I’m not too keen on emulating his
lifestyle…ehe. I’m finally at a point in my life where I’m relatively
stable (don’t use hard drugs any more, haven’t attempted suicide in years,
have a decent job,etc) and part of me is really afraid to risk losing
this.

And, while i’m ranting about this..ehe… another thing that has me afraid
of doing ibogaine/iboga is that i’d have to stop taking my meds before
hand. i’m currently taking effexor and remeron, which i think have been
very useful in getting me to the reasonably stable point i’m at now. and
so, in addition to being afraid that the ibogaine will make me completely
flip my shit, i’m afraid that going off the meds will revert me to the
suicidal lump that i was years ago…

anyway, sorry for going off there, but i’ve been needing to get that out
for sometime, i think….and I’d be very interested to hear what you folks
think…

thanx,

jon

btw… Brett, if you’re reading this, I know I’ve been a shit about
keeping in touch with you… i think what i’m talking about here is part
of the reason why. to be honest, i’m not very good at keeping in touch
with people in general… but one of my psychopathologies that i’ve yet to
really get over completely is the whole denial thing… like, if there’s
something that’s causing me some kind of stress, i have a tendency to just
pretend it doesn’t exist. i mean, i’m definately better about it than i
was back when i was a junky, but i’m certainly far from completely better
about it. for what it’s worth, i’m sorry.

Hi everyone!

I’ve never posted here before although I’ve been following your
discussions for a couple of months.I’ve had a heroin addiction for 4 years
and have tried several different detox methods without much success.I can do
the detox but its the ‘staying off’ that I seem to have a problem with.I
started Subutex a month ago.I don’t wanna bore you all with my story but I’m
really interested in Ibogaine.I’m in the UK.Would I need to buy it over that
Net?Would rootbark be better than HCl?

My two main concerns are:
I get really depressed n my heads really messed up.I worry alot….I guess
I’m trying to say I mess my own head up thinking too much n when tripping on
K or Shrooms (I’m not comparing the experience) I have put myself in a bad
place in this way.I solved this with breathing exercises n meditation but I
need to be Reminded to do this!Will I be ok?
I feel Ibogaine could help invaluably with my self-awareness and
development.I know you’ve already mentioned ‘bad trips’.None of my friends
know anything about Iboga-they think its like LSD.I need a sitter who I can
trust n this could be the ultimate problem I have.

What was the other?…
Oh,would Subutex affect it in anyway?It is an opiate blocker but as Iboga
isn’t an opioide,will it make any difference?

Thankyou all so much for your input.I’ve amassed alot of information that
will be invaluable when it comes to ‘my time’.Although I was first attracted
to Ibogaine through H detox,now I see it as more of a spiritual experience
that could finally help me become happy to be me.

Cheers!
Hannah

Hi Brooke,

Something that has helped me is remembering that iboga usually DOES
cause
anxiety as it comes on, typically about 30 minutes after taking it. Of
course, you don’t have the actual experience of this yet but it can
still be
helpful to know. Strange pulsings through the body, heightened hearing,
and
a general feeling that the body is being “cranked up” to a different
vibration are all pretty common. Fears that one is going to die are also
quite likely. The mind doesn’t like to let go and will often fight the
drug
as it feels its presence “trying to take over”. With all of these things
my
advice is to be aware that the stuff being experienced is normal, that
it
will pass, and to have a friend by your side, holding your hand is good.
15-20g max of rootbark is good for a first time experience, I’d say. You
never know how strong the stuff is so it’s good to keep it exciting but
safe. Once your body has done the drug once, it’ll know what it’s like
and
be more relaxed about going there a second time later.

This is a great time to do iboga, just after the Spring equinox,
traditionally a time when light overtakes dark, so all the signs are
most
auspicious. I’m going to do some myself later today. Can’t wait!

I’ve heard some say on this list iboga/ine can be a harsh teacher.  in
my

months of diarrhea isn’t fun either : )tmi sorry,
it
Didn’t take away ALL of my sickness but

the miracle is the large majority of the vast unimaginable sick was
taken
away
and the important and most profound part was how my mental reaction to
what’s left of the sick has changed; like unfocusing so I can refocus,
unstablizing so I can become stable, and iboga very much helps to not
let
the persistence of sick get to me and it gradually gets better,
exhausted
as
fuck, but better.  “the only way around this shit is through”
I’d say it’s like if I need to get from my house to the house across
the
street…I can get their by walking directly (if your not much for
exploring; or if your already in the habit of surrendering will to
sickness
it isn’t that difficult to switch to listening to the guide of iboga,
as
long as trust is there) or I can walk the opposite direction from the
house
and walk my own path and since the world is round I’ll get there
eventually
which promises be a very long yet exciting journey yet perhaps harsh
teacher, can anything that focus’s  reality do any thing else but be a
sometimes harsh teacher, some reality just isn’t pretty, and iboga
seems
to
make face reality?  Yage, I hear, is similar perhaps?  Even herb can
,to
some, be a harsh teacher (give a high dose of herb to a non-smoker who
has
panic attacks and see, my money is on 1 out of 25 panic maybe, who
knows.)
I’ve heard that xanex can be used with iboga unlike most other drugs
(though
wouldn’t recommend it of course), but I wonder if it is a good idea to
have
on hand by the iboga provider if a person has a history of
panic/anxiety
just in case; When I fed to much herb to a panic person a xanex always
made
them fine in 10-20 mins. With some breath work in the meantime.  They
suck
cock for xanex now but they don’t panic anymore : ) Was talking to
this
lady
about iboga and my friend over heard me say “…yeah, i kicked a
opioid
addiction with iboga…” And he yells out angrily “iboga didn’t do it
dude,
you did it!!”  I don’t think either one is completely correct.  I’m
not
sure
which is filling the other’s cracks, I’m just happy the cracks are
being
filled.  Not sure if either one could have done it without the other.

Back to this discussion.

The short answers Yes Ethnogarden is reliable, no I have not tried their root bark or specifically now about it, the HCL is fine.

Ibogaine is the primary alkaloid in Taberhathe Iboga, the root bark being the most active part of the plant which contains a dozen ibo-like compounds, one of which is ibogaine.

Ibogaine HCL is typically extracted from tabernathe iboga, some of it is semi-sythetic or a by-product of the manufacturer of pharmacutical products (I would have to look up what) I believe Ethnogarden is natural ibogaine.

Any quality iboga product will work for addiction, the experience itself and what they are better for. Fresh root bark will have a somewhat different qualities than extracts of dried root which is a little different for HCL. They are “work” and will typically produce the most profound and lucid experences of the first order, a life changing event for sure. They are all very long, arduous and not considered fun in large doses, but well worth the effort.

If someone were using iboga for addicttion I would suggest HCL or a commercial extract, not root bark. Ibogaine HCL will come on much stronger, seems to rip into issues harder, is somewhat shorter acting (still VERY long) with shorter recovery than the Natural products. Post mood is generally better and recovery shorterr with HCL – though I have no idea how it differs from fresh root in that respect.  The extracts and I assume root bark are rounder, fuller,  more “spiritual”,  earthy softer than HCL. When I was using ibogaine for addiction HCL worked better to break through and I felt better fater than the Indra extract I used, can’t say about root bark but it should be similar in some respects. If you can deal with the taste or quantity by making and drinking an home made extract or stuffing it in pills, you could even do a quick Turkish Iboga coffee  with a coffee grinder (it is amazingly horrid stuff), then have at it.

Taking iboga/ibogaine requires a knowledge and understanding of what you are dealing with. Please read http://ibogaine.org/manual.html.

unstablizing so I can become stable, and iboga very much helps to not
let
the persistence of sick get to me and it gradually gets better,
exhausted
as
fuck, but better.  “the only way around this shit is through”
I’d say it’s like if I need to get from my house to the house across
the
street…I can get their by walking directly (if your not much for
exploring; or if your already in the habit of surrendering will to
sickness
it isn’t that difficult to switch to listening to the guide of iboga,
as
long as trust is there) or I can walk the opposite direction from the
house
and walk my own path and since the world is round I’ll get there
eventually
which promises be a very long yet exciting journey yet perhaps harsh
teacher, can anything that focus’s  reality do any thing else but be a
sometimes harsh teacher, some reality just isn’t pretty, and iboga
seems
to
make face reality?  Yage, I hear, is similar perhaps?  Even herb can
,to
some, be a harsh teacher (give a high dose of herb to a non-smoker who
has
panic attacks and see, my money is on 1 out of 25 panic maybe, who
knows.)
I’ve heard that xanex can be used with iboga unlike most other drugs
(though
wouldn’t recommend it of course), but I wonder if it is a good idea to
have
on hand by the iboga provider if a person has a history of
panic/anxiety
just in case; When I fed to much herb to a panic person a xanex always
made
them fine in 10-20 mins. With some breath work in the meantime.  They
suck
cock for xanex now but they don’t panic anymore : ) Was talking to
this
lady
about iboga and my friend over heard me say “…yeah, i kicked a
opioid
addiction with iboga…” And he yells out angrily “iboga didn’t do it
dude,
you did it!!”  I don’t think either one is completely correct.  I’m
not
sure
which is filling the other’s cracks, I’m just happy the cracks are
being
filled.  Not sure if either one could have done it without the other.

Reply-To: ibogaine@mindvox.com

Hello! Can anyone please tell me which is more
efficient, Iboga Root Bark or Ibogaine HCl? I went to
the Ethnogarden website and the HCl costs more. Does
that mean is it more pure? Has anyone ordered from
Ethnogarden? If so, how is the quality?
Thank you and have a great day!

”Ten years of heroin handouts fixes drug crime”; be easier to kick then long lasting opioids?  Big moral difference to some between short and long lasting I guess.  Interesting harm reduction reading non the less.

Rescue 
Remedy…
Rock Rose
Star of Bethlehem

…is the most famous of the remedies, but in fact is not a remedy at all, but rather a mix of five different remedies (Cherry Plum, Clematis, Impatiens, Rock Rose and Star of Bethlehem) which together help deal with any emergency or stressful event. Taking a driving test, exam nerves, speaking in public, after an accident or an argument – there are countless uses for Rescue Remedy.”
Maybe they should add “when you stop your favorite drug suddenly”.
“In an emergency Rescue Remedy can be taken neat from the bottle, four drops at a time, and as frequently as required. Otherwise put four drops in a glass of water and take frequent sips until the emotions have calmed.”
There are few natural, safe, soft products that work on addicts, I have never seen RR not work on anyone or anything (cats/dogs/children). There is nothing to “feel”, except calmer and no drug interactions. I suppose someone could be allergic to a particular flower remedy, never heard of anyone having a problem with RR – and there is another one (I forget) that is very similar made by Bac

Rescue Remedie

Rescue Remedie is de eerste hulp remedie van Bach, het is verkrijgbaar in een reformhuis, natuurvoedingswinkel of new-age winkel. Tegen shock en verdoving, als middel tot integreren van de persoonlijkheid. Tegen doodsangst en paniekgevoelens. Tegen mentale stress en spanningen. Tegen de angst de (zelf) beheersing te verliezen. Tegen het gevoel van ver weg zijn dat dikwijls vooraf gaat aan bewustzijnsverlies.

Kortom bij allerlei situaties waarbij je een steuntje in de rug nodig hebt, bijvoorbeeld. bij examens, tandartsbezoek, ziekenhuisopname, ongelukken, ruzies of spanningen. Ook huisdieren en planten reageren goed op de Rescue Remedie. De Rescue Remedie kan zelfs helpen bij het afkicken van verslavingen.

Neem 4 druppels uit het voorraadflesje in een beetje water en drink dit met kleine slokjes op. Je kunt de druppels ook rechtstreeks onder de tong leggen. Bij bewusteloosheid kun je de druppels op de slapen en de polsen inwrijven. Herhaal dit net zo vaak totdat er verbetering ontstaat.

Rescue Remedie werkt absoluut niet verslavend en kan daarom zonder gevaar veelvuldig gebruikt worden.

We give it to them as a couple of drops in water.

“Hmmm. How does a

You aren’t injecting it in the cats are you?  Try reading the label and
following directions but the basics are drop some under the tongue or in
water. Do not take anything by mouth for an hour before or 15 minutes
after – or sumthin like that. It is pretty much like taking homeopathic
formulas.. It is about 120 proof, not a good idea to drop under the tongue
in an alcoholic, they won’t notice if it is put in water (they are tiny
drops), especially if they don’t know.

Good Trip/Bad Trip? They are all good, they often show you the bad. My last
addiction, ibo KICKED MY ASS over smoking over and over, showed me “things
to come” if I didn’t change the beha! vior. Now that was not fun at all, but
I
quit smoking. Iboga is a teacher, it will show you things you already know
but can’t see, sometimes things you don’t know, sometimes the lessons are
hard, emotions come up, things come up…

On the way up HCL tends to, well, can be like strapped to a rocket going
inward. Indra extract and I would assume dried root bark (someone help me
out here) should be a lot calmer, smoother, softer on the way up where the
anxiety is usually produced. Even that, simple deep breathing will do the
trick, 3 in and out to the count of 4 – deep slow yogic breaths. If you like
smoke something, it does go well with iboga. There is a product called
Rescue Remedie by Bach Flower Remedies (health food store), it is wonderful
for anxiety, withdrawal cravings and will have no negative effect with
iboga. I wouldn’t worry about it, it is much easier not to. There is an
element of fear to doing iboga, even after doing it.

! Mostly it isn’t that ibogaine is a bad trip, it is a rough trip. It is
very
long, takes a lot of time to recover, there is often nausea, vomiting,
ataxia, lots of feelings, perhaps hours and hours of visions and dialog…
It is simply a HUGE amount of stuff to process and it is pretty disgusting,
long and arduous. Nobody takes ibogaine for how it feels (in tripping
amounts), they take it for what it does.

Don’t fight it, just relax into it and let it take you. If you want it to
stop, open your eyes and turn on the lights (low), breath deep and slow, in
a few minuts you will shake some of it off – literally wake up. If you want
to change a vision, blink, you don’t even have to open your eyes – better
not to. As far as tripping, open eyed the most you are likely to see is some
visual distortions, strobic magnesium flare to lights or outlines of things,
they can get intense – my first time they were pretty cool, they get old,
especially when yo! u have them at night for a couple weeks after… the
lights pick them up and you can get trails. Other times I have not had much,
every iboga session is unique as to content and often side effects.

Recovery generally goes like this. You feel crappy, like sick, well till you
start to glow, then sometimes it can even be manic for a couple days, too
too much sometimes (mostly with HCL), then it settles down. The next 10
days-2 weeks ther is still an overt feeling (often) of the iboga in you, it
is a wonderful time generally speaking.

Now, want a BAD iboga trip, don’t listen do advice, don’t follow protocol,
don’t do set/setting, don’t have a good sitter, don’t follow directions,
think you are a bad-ass (after all you took acid LOL!!!!)… That will
pretty much assure you of one hellish time, In that case good for your dumb
ass, be glad you only scared the shit out of yourself or failed at your
attempt at drug treatment.

I definitely have panic attacks on ‘herb’, especially considering that
it’s
BC bud (strongest in the world) – and have often wondered how a strong ibo
trip would compare in the breathless/out-of-control department.  I don’t
want to rely on other substances to keep me calm, but I don’t want to have
a
heart attack either…

Hi Brooke,

Something that has helped me is remembering that iboga usually DOES cause
anxiety as it comes on, typically about 30 minutes after taking it. Of
course, you don’t have the actual experience of this yet but it can still be
helpful to know. Strange pulsings through the body, heightened hearing, and
a general feeling that the body is being “cranked up” to a different
vibration are all pretty common. Fears that one is going to die are also
quite likely. The mind doesn’t like to let go and will often fight the drug
as it feels its presence “trying to take over”. With all of these things my
advice is to be aware that the stuff being experienced is normal, that it
will pass, and to have a friend by your side, holding your hand is good.
15-20g max of rootbark is good for a first time experience, I’d say. You
never know how strong the stuff is so it’s good to keep it exciting but
safe. Once your body has done the drug once, it’ll know what it’s like and
be more relaxed about going there a second time later.

This is a great time to do iboga, just after the Spring equinox,
traditionally a time when light overtakes dark, so all the signs are most
auspicious. I’m going to do some myself later today. Can’t wait!

Nick

Callie,
I think Many shades of grey between bad/- and good/+ (defining good and
bad
not as did it ‘cure me’ but as was the experience a pleasant one or
not)…I
assume all journey’s have lessons;
I’ve heard some say on this list iboga/ine can be a harsh teacher.  in my
own journey, it was a mix…stopped vomiting at 5 days after dose…but 8
months of diarrhea isn’t fun either : )tmi sorry,
it
Didn’t take away ALL of my sickness but

the miracle is the large majority of the vast unimaginable sick was taken
away
and the important and most profound part was how my mental reaction to
what’s left of the sick has changed; like unfocusing so I can refocus,
unstablizing so I can become stable, and iboga very much helps to not let
the persistence of sick get to me and it gradually gets better, exhausted
as
fuck, but better.  “the only way around this shit is through”
I’d say it’s like if I need to get from my house to the house across the
street…I can get their by walking directly (if your not much for
exploring; or if your already in the habit of surrendering will to
sickness
it isn’t that difficult to switch to listening to the guide of iboga, as
long as trust is there) or I can walk the opposite direction from the
house
and walk my own path and since the world is round I’ll get there
eventually
which promises be a very long yet exciting journey yet perhaps harsh
teacher, can anything that focus’s  reality do any thing else but be a
sometimes harsh teacher, some reality just isn’t pretty, and iboga seems
to
make face reality?  Yage, I hear, is similar perhaps?  Even herb can ,to
some, be a harsh teacher (give a high dose of herb to a non-smoker who has
panic attacks and see, my money is on 1 out of 25 panic maybe, who knows.)
I’ve heard that xanex can be used with iboga unlike most other drugs
(though
wouldn’t recommend it of course), but I wonder if it is a good idea to
have
on hand by the iboga provider if a person has a history of panic/anxiety
just in case; When I fed to much herb to a panic person a xanex always
made
them fine in 10-20 mins. With some breath work in the meantime.  They suck
cock for xanex now but they don’t panic anymore : ) Was talking to this
lady
about iboga and my friend over heard me say “…yeah, i kicked a opioid
addiction with iboga…” And he yells out angrily “iboga didn’t do it
dude,
you did it!!”  I don’t think either one is completely correct.  I’m not
sure
which is filling the other’s cracks, I’m just happy the cracks are being
filled.  Not sure if either one could have done it without the other.

Know that you aren’t alone in your journey…and it sounds like it will be a productive one.  Remember we all look up at the same stars and sun and breathe the same air, and act and react from desire and fear, what are the limitations of (fill in the blank)? …i’ll puff some buddha and exhale a blessing for your journey the night of.

Good Trip/Bad Trip?  They are all good, they often show you the bad. My last addiction, ibo KICKED MY ASS over smoking over and over, showed me “things to come” if I didn’t change the behavior. Now that was not fun at all, but I quit smoking. Iboga is a teacher, it will show you things you already know but can’t see, sometimes things you don’t know, sometimes the lessons are hard, emotions come up, things come up…

On the way up HCL tends to, well, can be like strapped to a rocket going inward. Indra extract and I would assume dried root bark (someone help me out here) should be a lot calmer, smoother, softer on the way up where the anxiety is usually produced. Even that, simple deep breathing will do the trick, 3 in and out to the count of 4 – deep slow yogic breaths. If you like smoke something, it does go well with iboga. There is a product called Rescue Remedie by Bach Flower Remedies (health food store), it is wonderful for anxiety, withdrawal cravings and will have no negative effect with iboga. I wouldn’t worry about it, it is much easier not to. There is an element of fear to doing iboga, even after doing it.

Mostly it isn’t that ibogaine is a bad trip, it is a rough trip. It is very long, takes a lot of time to recover, there is often nausea, vomiting, ataxia, lots of feelings, perhaps hours and hours of visions and dialog… It is simply a HUGE amount of stuff to process and it is pretty disgusting, long and arduous. Nobody takes ibogaine for how it feels (in tripping amounts), they take it for what it does.

Don’t fight it, just relax into it and let it take you. If you want it to stop, open your eyes and turn on the lights (low), breath deep and slow, in a few minuts you will shake some of it off – literally wake up. If you want to change a vision, blink, you don’t even have to open your eyes – better not to. As far as tripping, open eyed the most you are likely to see is some visual distortions, strobic magnesium flare to lights or outlines of things, they can get intense – my first time they were pretty cool, they get old, especially when you have them at night for a couple weeks after… the lights pick them up and you can get trails. Other times I have not had much, every iboga session is unique as to content and often side effects.

Recovery generally goes like this. You feel crappy, like sick, well till you start to glow, then sometimes it can even be manic for a couple days, too too much sometimes (mostly with HCL), then it settles down. The next 10 days-2 weeks ther is still an overt feeling (often) of the iboga in you, it is a wonderful time generally speaking.

Now, want a BAD iboga trip, don’t listen do advice, don’t follow protocol, don’t do set/setting, don’t have a good sitter, don’t follow directions, think you are a bad-ass (after all you took acid LOL!!!!)… That will pretty much assure you of one hellish time, In that case good for your dumb ass, be glad you only scared the shit out of yourself or failed at your attempt at drug treatment.

There is a product called Rescue Remedie by Bach Flower Remedies (health
food store), it is wonderful for anxiety, withdrawal cravings and will have
no negative effect with iboga.<

LOL, just saying, this stuff works great on cats too- no matter how unruly
of “catty” this stuff calms them right out, turns them into pussycats.
I hadn’t thought of trying it myself for withdrawals. Hmmm. How does a
human “take” Rescue Remedy, Brett?
(light bulbs going off.)
Peace,

Good Trip/Bad Trip?  They are all good, they often show you the bad. My last
addiction, ibo KICKED MY ASS over smoking over and over, showed me “things
to come” if I didn’t change the behavior. Now that was not fun at all, but I
quit smoking. Iboga is a teacher, it will show you things you already know
but can’t see, sometimes things you don’t know, sometimes the lessons are
hard, emotions come up, things come up…

On the way up HCL tends to, well, can be like strapped to a rocket going
inward. Indra extract and I would assume dried root bark (someone help me
out here) should be a lot calmer, smoother, softer on the way up where the
anxiety is usually produced. Even that, simple deep breathing will do the
trick, 3 in and out to the count of 4 – deep slow yogic breaths. If you like
smoke something, it does go well with iboga. There is a product called
Rescue Remedie by Bach Flower Remedies (health food store), it is wonderful
for anxiety, withdrawal cravings and will have no negative effect with
iboga. I wouldn’t worry about it, it is much easier not to. There is an
element of fear to doing iboga, even after doing it.

Mostly it isn’t that ibogaine is a bad trip, it is a rough trip. It is very
long, takes a lot of time to recover, there is often nausea, vomiting,
ataxia, lots of feelings, perhaps hours and hours of visions and dialog…
It is simply a HUGE amount of stuff to process and it is pretty disgusting,
long and arduous. Nobody takes ibogaine for how it feels (in tripping
amounts), they take it for what it does.

Don’t fight it, just relax into it and let it take you. If you want it to
stop, open your eyes and turn on the lights (low), breath deep and slow, in
a few minuts you will shake some of it off – literally wake up. If you want
to change a vision, blink, you don’t even have to open your eyes – better
not to. As far as tripping, open eyed the most you are likely to see is some
visual distortions, strobic magnesium flare to lights or outlines of things,
they can get intense – my first time they were pretty cool, they get old,
especially when you have them at night for a couple weeks after… the
lights pick them up and you can get trails. Other times I have not had much,
every iboga session is unique as to content and often side effects.

Recovery generally goes like this. You feel crappy, like sick, well till you
start to glow, then sometimes it can even be manic for a couple days, too
too much sometimes (mostly with HCL), then it settles down. The next 10
days-2 weeks ther is still an overt feeling (often) of the iboga in you, it
is a wonderful time generally speaking.

Now, want a BAD iboga trip, don’t listen do advice, don’t follow protocol,
don’t do set/setting, don’t have a good sitter, don’t follow directions,
think you are a bad-ass (after all you took acid LOL!!!!)… That will
pretty much assure you of one hellish time, In that case good for your dumb
ass, be glad you only scared the shit out of yourself or failed at your
attempt at drug treatment.

Brooke,

“a week later, and I’m wondering if anyone
can counsel me on how ‘spacy’ I might be at this point?”

You should be fine after  20-30gm, 50gm might be a different story. There
may be some attention span deficit but a week out most people are at their
most colofrul and vibrant..

Yes, about a week afterwards is good. Certainly for me. I used to get
a feeling of being “connected” to everything around me come on about 30
hours after taking the ibo and it would last a week or two then drift away.
Rather like the boundaries around what is or isn’t me were dissolved –
extremely relaxing. I remember walking about 5 miles along the Regents
Canal in London right after coming off a session to go to a conference.
The whole experience was just a flowing ball of energy – amazing. Thoughts,
feelings, sights and sounds all coherently just flowing around. It’s a
great space to talk to a group from because you will feel the connection
between yourself and the audience stronger than usual, and this is what
turns people on when they listen to you. It’ll be great.

With a root bark extract, that had been prepared many years ago, I was
experiencing the light flash effect five to six days out. I am talking about the
little bursts of light that seem to appear everywhere and are seen by many
persons taking ibogaine/iboga.  Really had me worried and thought it was going to be
permanent.  Luckily it was not.  Just did not want you flipping out if that
occurred.

During iboga it goes from one vision/thought to the next, yes as Howard said, just talk as the visions evaporate rather quickly and are moving on to the next one (for hours). Sometimes for a period of time after there is a minor version of this, people can be on one thing and the mind wonders to the next and the next.

I too like iboga at night and try to have full effect come on just after dark. I also find it easier on the sitter and myself/myself and the ibonaught to not do it too late.

If you have forced air heating/cooling you might want to adjust the temp of the house a couple hours before and turn off the air while you get into it. maybe shut the fridge also. The first several hours are the most sensitive with lights/sounds/discomfort. Oddly, natural sounds like rain or thunder (or bullfrogs trying to get some) during ibogaine is not that distracting, turning the page of a book 20 feet away can be.

One of the most amazing things was my first time, going outside (full-on the ibo) and watching the stars/universe over the ocean. It felt like some kind of energy flowing right through, like a galactic wind.

Remember, move slow or better don’t move, be assisted if you need to get up. Deep breath if you get any anxiety though less likely than HCL (can be rough), open your eyes or simply blink, or with a thought to change a vision.

I like a nice hot bath first,  do nothing anxiety producing, get relaxed, just a touch of incense (nag champa) and some medtation music to start.. You can drink natural fluids, tea (no caffine) ginger is a favorite, real fruit juice or water up to about 4 hours before ingesting iboga, be well hydrated but not saturated – remember, you are going to have to pee, this is typically what inspires the first vomiting, getting up to go to the bathroom. You don’t want a belly full of liquid when you take the iboga.

If you have anything special to work on, get into the iboga first, keep the mind blank, don’t try to watch for visions, they can be very subtle – if I stared at them they certainly won’t happen. Basically, make like sleeping, flat on the back is generally best than on a side or face down, sitting cross legged also works for some people.

After, vitamin B complex, eating (start easy), fluids and moving will help shake it off. Some people will be fine the next morning (I HATE THEM) or afternoon after they have eaten, others may take several days.  Just take it easy, reflect, explore, see the world again for the first time,.don’t have to do anything, you may be oozy for several days, mostly in the early morning and at dusk.

Again, my experience is with extracts and ibogaine HCL, not root bark.

Brooke,

“a week later, and I’m wondering if anyone
can counsel me on how ‘spacy’ I might be at this point?”

You should be fine after  20-30gm, 50gm might be a different story. There may be some attention span deficit but a week out most people are at their most colofrul and vibrant.. During iboga it goes from one vision/thought to the next, yes as Howard said, just talk as the visions evaporate rather quickly and are moving on to the next one (for hours). Sometimes for a period of time after there is a minor version of this, people can be on one thing and the mind wonders to the next and the next.

I too like iboga at night and try to have full effect come on just after dark. I also find it easier on the sitter and myself/myself and the ibonaught to not do it too late.

If you have forced air heating/cooling you might want to adjust the temp of the house a couple hours before and turn off the air while you get into it. maybe shut the fridge also. The first several hours are the most sensitive with lights/sounds/discomfort. Oddly, natural sounds like rain or thunder (or bullfrogs trying to get some) during ibogaine is not that distracting, turning the page of a book 20 feet away can be.

One of the most amazing things was my first time, going outside (full-on the ibo) and watching the stars/universe over the ocean. It felt like some kind of energy flowing right through, like a galactic wind.

Remember, move slow or better don’t move, be assisted if you need to get up. Deep breath if you get any anxiety though less likely than HCL (can be rough), open your eyes or simply blink, or with a thought to change a vision.

I like a nice hot bath first,  do nothing anxiety producing, get relaxed, just a touch of incense (nag champa) and some medtation music to start.. You can drink natural fluids, tea (no caffine) ginger is a favorite, real fruit juice or water up to about 4 hours before ingesting iboga, be well hydrated but not saturated – remember, you are going to have to pee, this is typically what inspires the first vomiting, getting up to go to the bathroom. You don’t want a belly full of liquid when you take the iboga.

If you have anything special to work on, get into the iboga first, keep the mind blank, don’t try to watch for visions, they can be very subtle – if I stared at them they certainly won’t happen. Basically, make like sleeping, flat on the back is generally best than on a side or face down, sitting cross legged also works for some people.

After, vitamin B complex, eating (start easy), fluids and moving will help shake it off. Some people will be fine the next morning (I HATE THEM) or afternoon after they have eaten, others may take several days.  Just take it easy, reflect, explore, see the world again for the first time,.don’t have to do anything, you may be oozy for several days, mostly in the early morning and at dusk. Artifacts (like visual disturbances) can go on for weeks, emotional stuff can bubble-up, there can be anything from mild depression (more common in addicts) to elation, you could be a bit strange for a couple days… it will work itself out.

Oh, and of course sex is usually amazing, if you want to be with that person . On the relationship thingie, whatever it is it will generally be seen – same with yourself, you will see. One person I know ended a marrage 2 weeks after doing ibo, good decision.

Have a wonderful journey. LAST THING, come back. If you get some kind of choice to leave or come back, don’t leave, it will disturb your sitter, get in the news and stuff. We don’t want that.

Howard

I enjoy the interplay between different worlds of talent and experience
from almost everyone here.The article about prisons and others about
efforts efforts to decriminalize pot and ibo reveal what I think are
critical misperceptions about the role of addictions, medicines, and
health in this world.

Pleasure seekers and completely leashed junkies are uniquely valuable as
lab rats for the global fascist police state. We can sure hope for a
better world. But who could expect endorsement, funding, acceptance or
approval for a freely available powerful tool to escape addiction or
generic mind control?

The 20th century has seen an almost continuous global war against the
human spirit, or its most positive aspects. Our collective experience with
pharmaceutical and recreational drugs for the past several generations has
been about how to more completely limit, contain, and harness the human
spirit. And the opposition has been getting damn good at what they do.
Prozac is light years ahead of the early drugs IGFarben played with on
inmates in the Nazi camps. So is bathtub speed.  People even pay money to
take these! Creating Jobs and “Prosperity”!.

Ibogaine comes along and effectively puts a pie in the face of
pharmaceutical cartels, academics and professionals involved in the
co-called “health care” professions(try “Disease Management”). It even
works! In its first social introduction into NYC with the Black Panthers
in the 60’s, the purveyors were shot. These violent tactics of
assassination by police and military spooks might have hinted at their
value of addiction as a social engineering and financial tool.

I missed that then completely. Like many hippies I wanted to get high and
stop the stupid War in Viet Nam, in about that order. The social
engineering and counterinsurgency skills being developed next door in the
Black Community using addiction, ignorance,disease, and poverty just never
got through my psychedelic doors of perception.

The methadone leash has proven its worth, and by criminalizing weed,
steroids,and psychedelics, critical profits and networks can be
maintained, and the most visionary and intelligent sectors of the
population can be permanently evicted from the political process. Just
give thousands of intellectuals and conscious younger people felony rap
sheets from staged prosecutions. Never able to own guns or vote. Sweet! In
stark levels of teutonic efficiency, lets also privatise the prisons so we
can peg wage slavery to a captive population and finally become
competitive with third-world sweat shop hourly rates. This neat twist will
bring the whole show into self-funding sustainability for decades to come.

That is, unless some moron comes along and kills the golden goose. Cures
the diseases we harvest profits from managing, breaks the addiction cycle
we have invested so much into perfecting, wakes the masses to their
original equipment intelligence, love, and human rights. Stupidity like
that. Any real threat of these outcomes coming from you or your group, and
the gloves will come off right after projectiles are launched. They have
always done so ever since the Brits started to charge Chinese for the
Opium.  End of this rant.

Thanks, Howard, et al, for the manual on Ibo treatment for addiction and
the ideas for staying clean after treatment, I appreciate what I am
learning from you all for my patients. Any further tips on accessing,
processing, handling, and dosing the various forms of Ibo would be also
very welcome.

Please keep your wits about you regarding privacy, legality, and security
issues with Ibo if you live within the formerly somewhat free USA. Newly
elected Bonesman Kerry will keep the New World Order rolling, tho getting
rid of the Shrub’s peanut gallery will be a wonderful thing.  Almost worth
the insipid bipartisan charade. The whole cabal needs some kind of cosmic
pest control service to step in and recycle them into petrochemicals, but
that would let us all off the hook too easily, methinks.

Meanwhile, Happy “Change Units” as our future rolls toward us.

Dr. Tom

‘LIFE ON THE OUTSIDE’: THE OTHER LOCKUP

LIFE ON THE OUTSIDE
The Prison Odyssey of Elaine Bartlett.
By Jennifer Gonnerman.
356 pp. New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux. $24.

The United States is transforming itself into a nation of ex-convicts. This
country imprisons people at 14 times the rate of Japan, eight times the
rate of France and six times the rate of Canada. The American prison system
disgorges 600,000 angry, unskilled people each year – more than the
populations of Boston, Milwaukee or Washington. “Thirteen million people
have been convicted of a felony and spent some time locked up,” Jennifer
Gonnerman writes in “Life on the Outside.” “That’s almost 7 percent of U.S.
adult residents.

If all of these people were placed on an island together, that island would
have a population larger than many countries, including Sweden, Bolivia,
Senegal, Greece or Somalia.”

Ex-cons are marooned in the poor inner-city neighborhoods where legitimate
jobs do not exist and the enterprises that led them to prison in the first
place are ever present.

These men and women are further cut off from the mainstream by sanctions
that are largely invisible to those of us who have never been to prison.

They are commonly denied the right to vote, parental rights, drivers’
licenses, student loans and residency in public housing — the only housing
that marginal, jobless people can afford.

The most severe sanctions are reserved for former drug offenders, who have
been treated worse than murderers since the start of the so-called war on
drugs.

The Welfare Reform Act of 1996, for example, imposed a lifetime ban on food
stamp and welfare eligibility for people convicted of even a single drug
felony. The states can opt out of the prohibition, but where it remains
intact it cannot be lifted even for ex-prisoners who live model, crime-free
lives.

Drug offenders, many of them former addicts, have been consigned to civic
purgatory with no clear route to redemption. Gonnerman, a staff writer for
The Village Voice, traces this disastrous policy back 30 years to the
presidential ambitions of Nelson Rockefeller, the Republican New York
governor who was denied his rightward-rushing party’s presidential
nomination because he was seen as too liberal.

Rockefeller sought to prove his “tough on crime” bona fides through a
widely emulated package of drug laws that has come to be his chief legacy.

The legislature rejected a Rockefeller proposal that would have required a
life sentence for the highest level drug felony, known as A-1, but adopted
a similar sanction that set the mandatory minimum sentence at 15 to life —
which meant that hard-core judges could go higher if they chose.

A sentencing policy that had once penalized petty street-corner peddlers
less severely than drug kingpins no longer considered the perpetrators’
level of involvement in the trade.

Now everything hinged on the weight of the drugs.

A conviction for selling at least two ounces of heroin or cocaine meant A-1
— which meant a long, long stay in jail. Under the law, two ounces were as
bad as two kilos.

The first-time offender who gave in to the siren song of an easy score and
the junkie selling watered-down smack to feed a habit were no different
under the law from the full-timer who moved serious weight.

Rockefeller reveled in the fact that he had passed the toughest drug law in
the country.

But as Gonnerman notes, he “had helped launch a new experiment in crime
control, one that would have repercussions in every corner of the country
for decades to come.” The states were soon competing to see who could lock
up the most people for the longest periods of time. The national prison
population skyrocketed, from a modest 200,000 in 1973 to an eye-popping two
million today, at a cost to the country of about $55 billion per year.
States were soon forced to choose between building roads and schools and
building prisons.

Mass imprisonment has not hindered the drug trade.

Indeed, drugs are cheaper and more plentiful today than ever. In addition,
many of the addicts who are held in jail for years at a cost of more than
$20,000 per inmate per year could be more cheaply and effectively dealt
with in treatment. What jumps out at you from “Life on the Outside” is the
extent to which imprisonment has been normalized, not just for adults from
poor communities but for children who visit their parents in prison.

Spending holidays and birthdays behind bars for years on end, these
children come to think of prison as a natural next step in the process of
growing up.

“Life on the Outside” tells this story through the family of Elaine
Bartlett, a young mother of four who received a sentence of 20 to life for
her first offense — selling cocaine to an undercover cop in a motel near
Albany. Bartlett was pardoned after 16 years and went on to speak publicly
about the evils of the Rockefeller drug laws. She rails against the
unfairness of the law, but she was hardly naive when she decided to carry a
package of cocaine from New York to Albany together with her boyfriend,
Nathan Brooks, a petty dealer with whom she shared an apartment.

Elaine had grown up in Harlem during the 60’s and 70’s, when the
neighborhood that has become newly fashionable today was a burned-out shell
and the epicenter of the heroin trade.

Elaine’s mother, Yvonne, had been arrested for selling heroin for pocket
money and Yvonne’s boyfriend had died of an overdose.

When Elaine took that train from New York to Albany, she was hoping for a
quick score of $2,500, perhaps to buy some furniture and hold a nice
Thanksgiving dinner for her family.

She and Nathan, however, were ensnared in a buy-and-bust and hauled before
one of the toughest drug judges in the state. While at trial, Elaine was
startled to see the man who had lured her to Albany take the stand as a
witness for the prosecution. The man was George Deets, a drug dealer and
addict who ran a drug-trafficking operation while working as an informant
for the state police.

Deets has since died of an overdose.

Even so, the story of how he maintained an intimate relationship with the
state police while freely selling large amounts of drugs — and fingering
other dealers elsewhere — merits further investigation. It also
underscores a problem with how the police have operated under the
Rockefeller system.

Gonnerman writes that Deets typically volunteered to serve as an informant
— which meant trawling for fresh meat in Harlem — whenever he was
arrested on a drug charge.

He waltzed down to New York and lured the mark up to Albany County, making
sure there was enough drug present for an A-1 bust. The mark sold the drugs
to the cops, who were grateful for the collar, and Deets lived to traffic
another day.

Elaine’s children were 10, 6, 3 and 1 when the judge sent her to jail. The
most heartbreaking scenes in “Life on the Outside” depict Bartlett huddled
with her four young children in prison visiting rooms.

The family gathered every weekend and posed for pictures taken by the
visiting-room photographer. The years wear on and the children grow up
before our eyes, suffering all of the problems that might be expected in
young people traumatized by the absence of a beloved parent.

The prison visiting rooms have become a bizarre lovers’ lane where
teenagers strike up relationships with people from other prison families or
with inmates themselves. With each generation, the families grow steadily
more accustomed to living their lives in captivity.

By the time Elaine is pardoned, her mother, who has cared for the children,
is dead, and the wreckage of her extended family is too much to bear. Most
of this moving and well-reported book deals with Elaine’s struggle to
create a life for herself outside the prison walls — by finding a job, a
place to live, and by reconnecting with her thoroughly damaged family.

This ground is familiar, but revelatory too, as when Elaine realizes that
she has exchanged the prison behind bars for the prison that awaits
ex-offenders who try to make it in the real world.

Her worst nightmare comes true when her teenage son, Jamel, who grew up in
the visiting room, follows in his mother’s footsteps and goes to jail
himself. Jamel is visited inside by a 15-year-old girlfriend who is too
young even to enter the gates but gets in with a fake ID. The girl becomes
pregnant by Jamel, who has left jail briefly only to return, and the cycle
begins anew.

Thanks Nick – you’ve been helpful and supportive from the beginning (as
everyone here has been) so I’m mucho appreciative.

I have the batch ‘brewing’ as you read this – plan to partake next
Saturday night, and my watcher is reading up to prepare as well.  I’ll
take your advice on the food, and include it with my liver cleanse the
day before.

My only serious concern right now is how I’ll ‘be’ after the process,
functionally speaking.  I just found out that I have to fly and give a
series of new media lectures a week later, and I’m wondering if anyone
can counsel me on how ‘spacy’ I might be at this point?

Thanks in advance as always.  Also, to everyone that has asked, I’ll be

Hello all,

Just to summarize, my name is Brooke Burgess, and I’ve posted
several
times
in order to glean some of the intricacies of the process before I
undertake
my first journey.  I have 50g of rootbark from a reputable source,
and
will
be taking off 5 days from work within the next two weeks to fully
immerse
myself in the experience.

Here’s my current checklist – please feel free to make suggestions,
corrections, criticisms, and such – or contact me directly at
brooke@brokensaints.com.

–  with 190lbs of bodyweight, and being a first-time ‘non-addict’
experiencer (don’t nicotine and emotional trenches count for
something?
🙂 ), I will be using 15-20g of rootbark.
–  I was referred to an online recipe to extract the vital
components,
which
requires 700ml of vodka, a glass of red wine, and the juice of a
lemon to
allow the plant material to ferment over one week in a closed
container.

Hi Brooke,

I don’t know if you’re referring to the recipe posted at
www.ibogaine.co.uk/extract.htm but if so it’s actually just half a
bottle of
vodka and two glasses of red wine + the lemon juice. Don’t know that
it
makes so much difference but just to let you know.

After this, I will boil off the alcohol and test the remnants for
bitterness
–  I will prepare a quiet space with images and items that trigger

Good luck

There are a lot of folks who can’t understand
how we came to have an oil shortage here in America.

Well, there’s a very simple answer:
Nobody bothered to check the oil.

We just didn’t know we were getting low.

The reason for that is purely geographical.

All our oil is in Alaska, Texas, California,
and Oklahoma.

All our dipsticks are in Washington, DC.

Hello all,

Just to summarize, my name is Brooke Burgess, and I’ve posted several
times
in order to glean some of the intricacies of the process before I
undertake
my first journey.  I have 50g of rootbark from a reputable source, and
will
be taking off 5 days from work within the next two weeks to fully immerse
myself in the experience.

Here’s my current checklist – please feel free to make suggestions,
corrections, criticisms, and such – or contact me directly at
brooke@brokensaints.com.

–  with 190lbs of bodyweight, and being a first-time ‘non-addict’
experiencer (don’t nicotine and emotional trenches count for something?
🙂 ), I will be using 15-20g of rootbark.
–  I was referred to an online recipe to extract the vital components,
which
requires 700ml of vodka, a glass of red wine, and the juice of a lemon to
allow the plant material to ferment over one week in a closed container.

Hi Brooke,

I don’t know if you’re referring to the recipe posted at
www.ibogaine.co.uk/extract.htm but if so it’s actually just half a bottle of
vodka and two glasses of red wine + the lemon juice. Don’t know that it
makes so much difference but just to let you know.

After this, I will boil off the alcohol and test the remnants for
bitterness
–  I will prepare a quiet space with images and items that trigger
emotional
memories and ties to serious blocks and blisses from my life.
–  I’ll have a strong and considerate ‘watcher’ with basic medical
training
and a spiritual understanding to veer me back onto ‘the path’ in case
things
go awry.  Oh…and don’t forget the handy bucket by the bed for sudden
movements.
–  I’ve set aside the pre-requisite three days for a slow and thoughtful
return to full mobility and reintegration with the ‘real’ world.

Has anyone read this article on the ibogaine dossier?

http://www.ibogaine.org/speyrer.html

Eric Taub talks about ibogaines ability to release repressed memories.
What caught my eye was in the paragraph titled ‘THE EXPERIENCE IS
“INCREDIBLY
VISUAL”.  Here he states that ibogaine ceases it’s visual/psychological
effects after it’s been taken a 4th, 5th or 6th time.  It kind of
suggests
that all repressed trauma or emotion has been removed at this stage by
the
ibogaine or that somehow there is a deffence against the ibogaine.

This seems very impressive and would be truly amazing but I was
wondering
if anyone has had experience of this.  I haven’t read about anyone how
had that many ibo experiences.  Perhaps a person coming from a non-adict
background would gain more from the experience due to being less blocked
by drugs or alcohol? It’s an interesting thought all the same.

I did ibogaine 4 times in 1999 and didn’t experience many visuals. I still
consider my eyes to “hold a lot of emotion” (usually fear, anger, passion,
or just general intensity) and will probably try and focus on this area when
I get around to doing it again, maybe soon.

The idea of emotions being “held” like this is also kind of supported by
therapies like EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) where
the client is guided into accessing repressed feelings by being asked to
move his or her eyes in a certain way (upwards and to the left, etc). It’s
generally reckoned to work pretty good, from what I hear, so I’ve no doubt
there’s a lot of the truth in the theoretical side. From my experience of
being involved in month-long marathon groups, and similar processes intended
to open participants up emotionally, I remember that eye infections develop
very easily. It’s often seems related to someone “not wanting to see
something” or “not wanting to look at an issue.” (In fact, the whole body is
a mirror of the unconscious, as explored in kinesiology)

So, personally, I hope I get more desensitization in the eyes next time I do
ibo. It would be interesting to hear what Eric himself thinks about the idea
that ibogaine can remove repressed trauma from the eyes.

Nick

Luke,

I believe I may have been the first to perceive that ibogaine
visualization
ceased after x number of ibogaine treatments but, this still remains
hypothetical as there is not enough data to determine whether it is true
or not and
then, for what percentage of the patients.

It appears that some ibogaine providers believe that the effects of
ibogaine
on non-drug dependent individuals would be greater than on drug dependent
individuals but, I think that is still open to discussion also.

Too bad there is not some universally accepted criteria for what
determines
gain.  On the other hand, I believe that all providers believe that
multiple
treatments over time are generally more effective than single treatments.

Did you ever see the original King Kong (1933)?
If you did, you will remember the poignant final scene, with King Kong
atop the Empire State Building, fighting off the Air Corps (that was in
the days before the Air Force, obviously). He catches one plane, rips it
up, and it’s gone. The other planes, with their machine guns, wound him
fatally and he falls all the way down to 34th Street and 5th Avenue. Now,
few people know this, but “Kong”, as he was known to his friends, had drug
habit, a powerful addiction that he called “the beast”. He wanted desperately
to get the monkey off his back, so to speak.
In any event, he hits the ground very hard and creates a giant pothole
that still hasn’t  been fixed properly.
The character played by Robert Armstrong (you know, the one who captured
King Kong and makes him into a star at Radio City Music Hall, training
him on the side to become a rockette), well anyway, this character makes
his through the crowd and stands by the great, motionless body. The police
sergeant says: “Well, the airplanes got him”.
And he answers what sounds like: “Oh, no. It was beauty killed the beast”.
Now, what he actually said was: “It was Bwiti killed the beast”, meaning
that Kong had been cured of his addiction, not to Fay Wray (who was really
a low-level, well, in a sense, high-level, dealer, supplying the great
ape with lots of stuff), but to the beast.

Voilà. C`est fini.

Two mornings ago, Howard Stern turned down our expressions of support. We’re still banned from his show. I can’t tell if it’s because of the ibogaine (diverting the focus from pot jokes to something serious), and because he’s still pissed that we removed the Pope of Pot from our stage in 1994 because the cops were about to shut us down unless we had the next  band on and off stage in 20 minutes, and Pope Mickey wanted to jump the queue and do a rant trashing us. I think it was the incident with the Pope.

He is absolutely against OUR freedom of speech, and worked hand-in-glove with Rudy G. to torpedo the Cures not Wars Parade in 1997. What goes around….comes around.

Could Stern’s anti-Bush rants shock the vote?
By Matthew Gilbert, Globe Staff, 3/18/2004

American liberals have been waiting for a perch on talk radio, a
medium
dominated by conservative and right-wing voices since the 1980s. And
on
March 31, the new Air America Radio network will give them a nascent
one, as
it premieres in the New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago markets. Just
as “The
Daily Show” brings an openly lefty spin to TV news, Air America will
fly in
the face of the right wing with hosts including Al Franken, Janeane
Garofalo, and Marty Kaplan.

But wait a minute: Is “shock jock” Howard Stern — stripper
aficionado,
champion of misfits everywhere, all-purpose radio provocateur —
already
giving liberals a voice on the airwaves? And is that voice powerful
enough
to affect the upcoming presidential election?

Since the FCC crackdown on media “indecency” in the wake of Janet
Jackson’s
Nipplegate incident, Stern has transformed his morning variety show
into a
rabidly anti-Bush talk forum. Every weekday, he has been devoting
hours of
his broadcast (locally on WBCN-FM, 104.1) to impassioned criticism of
President Bush and support of Senator John Kerry. Railing tirelessly
against
the president, Stern has been attacking Bush’s yoking together of
church and
state, the legitimacy of his National Guard service, his use of Sept.
11
imagery in his campaign ads, his stances regarding First Amendment
rights,
his handling of Iraq, and his stands on gay marriage and stem-cell
research.

“Join me and friends of this show who are outraged,” Stern said on
the air
last Friday. “Vote out every Republican you can find.” He has also
been
urging his listeners to send money to Kerry’s campaign, calling him
“a good
man” and praising his record in Vietnam as well as his later
criticism of
the Vietnam War.

“With all the talk of liberal talk radio,” says Michael Harrison, the
editor
and publisher of Talkers magazine, “we’re seeing emerging from the
ranks of
‘shock jocks’ one of the most potent and articulate liberal talkers
we’ve
seen in years.”

Harrison calls Stern’s recent crusade “historic.” “Anytime you have
somebody suddenly igniting political interest with an audience who
has the
kind of loyalty factor Stern has, it could turn an election.” A large
percentage of Stern’s listeners — some 8 1/2 million a week — were
leaning
in favor of Bush, Harrison says. “If Stern could turn several million
Bush
supporters away from Bush, that has even more impact than Rush
Limbaugh,
who’s preaching to the choir. So this is pivotal to what is shaping
up to be
a close election.”

“On a national level, I don’t know how much influence Stern could
have,”
says Chuck Todd, editor of The Hotline, a Washington-based daily
briefing on
politics. “But we assume too little at our own peril when it comes to
Stern
and talk radio in general. . . . Does Bush really need to worry about
him?
If New York were a swing state, we definitely would take this more
seriously. Is Stern’s popularity as devoted outside of New York? We
only
know it is ratings-wise.”

Stern is frequently dismissed, by liberals and conservatives alike,
as a
sexist, a racist, and a narcissist. But he is one of the most
influential
entertainers in America, particularly among the much-sought-after
18-to-25-year-old male demographic. His show is a critical stop for
actors
plugging youth-market movies, and his skits serve as the blueprint
for many
reality TV concepts. Last month, in an effort to borrow some of
Stern’s
mojo, Jay Leno hired Stern sidekick “Stuttering John” Melendez to be
an
announcer and correspondent on “The Tonight Show.”

Harrison says that Stern’s audience is broader than most people
realize.
“They’re not just 18-year-old, beer-drinking yahoos. They’re 20- and
30- and
40-something professionals. They’re mainstream American citizens who
are
well-educated and affluent and socially active and politically
interested,
though not politically active. But they’re being motivated. Wouldn’t
that be
amazing if millions of people vote who otherwise wouldn’t, because of
this
issue?”

“Some people will dismiss Stern not because they don’t believe he has
a
following, but because they believe his listeners don’t vote,” Todd
says. “I
would argue that a swing voter is just that; they swing between not
voting
and voting, not between the two parties. So if he brings some
nonvoters to
the polls, then that’s a big impact.”

Over the years, Stern has occasionally taken political positions. In
the
1994 New York gubernatorial election, he briefly ran as the
Libertarian
Party candidate, before withdrawing and endorsing Republican George
Pataki.
“One could argue that he had an effect on that New York governor’s
race,
that he was an impact player,” Todd says. And until recently, Stern
was
supportive of Bush and the decision to go to war in Iraq. But Stern
has
never come out so relentlessly for or against a politician, and he is
best
known as someone who would just as soon joke about flatulence and
prostitution as take on the government. His anti-Bush push began in
earnest
after the FCC crackdown on “indecency” inspired Clear Channel —
which he
calls “Fear Channel” — to remove his show from six cities the week
of Feb.
23. While those markets form a relatively small portion of his
audience, the
punitive action threw Stern for a loop. And his outrage has boiled to
a head
with news that Congress is currently considering a radical increase
in the
amount of FCC indecency fines (from a maximum of $27,500 to
$500,000).

“It’s over,” Stern said on the air Tuesday. “When the Senate passes
that
bill, it’s over. The show is over. . . . We can’t do a radio program
that’s
cutting edge . . . if the government keeps second-guessing everything
we
do.”

Stern is also maintaining that Clear Channel dropped him last month
not
because of indecency but because of some of his Bush criticism
earlier in
the year. “There’s a real good argument to be made that I stopped
backing
Bush and that’s when I got kicked off Clear Channel,” he said on the
air
earlier this month.

“When he takes that FCC persecution mantle and wraps it around his
political
views,” says Mark Walsh, CEO of Air America, “and when he implies
that it
wasn’t until he started to criticize this president that he really
started
getting nailed for ‘immorality’ and ‘obscenity,’ he throws gasoline
on the
fire.

“If he says, ‘I’m being stifled because I have the temerity to
challenge
this president,’ and ‘Remember a year and a half ago when
entertainers were
chastised for questioning the war and now I’m getting nailed for the
same
thing,’ if he starts pounding that drum, I would contend that a
significant
portion of his listenership will take that as gospel truth.”

“He is self-aggrandizing if he thinks he’s being singled out here,”
says
Jeffrey Chester, executive director of the Center for Digital
Democracy, a
Washington-based advocacy organization. “Congress is engaging in this
kind
of witch hunt generally. I don’t think they’re singling out Stern for
his
alleged critical comments against the Bush administration.”

Whether or not he is being censored for putting down Bush, the First
Amendment issues at stake in his case remain incendiary. How much is
America
willing to let politicians determine what is “decent” and “indecent”?

“It has been this bubbling issue that unites liberals and
conservatives,
this free speech stuff,” says Todd. “And it could pop under the right
circumstances. It probably needs a linchpin, the way gay marriage got
its
linchpin thanks to the mayor of San Francisco suddenly issuing
marriage
licenses. It will need a seminal moment. Is Stern getting thrown off
the air
that moment for this FCC issue? I don’t know.”

“I’m no fan of Howard Stern or Rush Limbaugh and what I think is the
tabloid-esque domination of radio and a great deal of television,”
says
Chester. “But Congress is stampeding to censor a whole range of
speech.”
Chester says it is unclear whether Kerry will indeed be Stern’s
“savior,”
and that “what Stern really should be doing is trying to get Kerry to
be
public and accountable on this.”

One thing does seem clear, however. If Stern loses this battle, his
cause
will take on added vigor. “Take Stern off the air because of the
government?” says Harrison. “Take a guy that’s a beloved icon and
turn him
into a beloved martyr.”

Friends:

NORML needs your help convincing Congress to reject a pair of bills
that
would criminally punish marijuana smokers for “drugged driving”
simply if
inactive marijuana metabolites are detected in their bodily fluids
– even
if the individual is neither under the influence nor impaired to
drive.

H.R. 3907, sponsored by Rep. Jon Porter (R-NV), demands that state
legislatures amend their DUID (driving under the influence of
drugs) to
enact mandatory minimum penalties for anyone convicted of driving
under
the influence of illegal drugs.  Under the proposal, states have
until
2006 to pass and enforce DUID laws “approved by the Administrator
of the
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration,” or lose portions
of their
federal highway funding.

H.R. 3922, sponsored by a bipartisan coalition of legislators
including
Reps. Robert Portman (R-OH), Sander Levin (D-MI), Steven LaTourette
(R-OH), Mark Souder (R-IN) and Jim Ramstad (R-MN), seeks to impose
so-called “model” DUID legislation upon all 50 states – demanding
they
enact statutes sanctioning anyone who operates a motor vehicle
“while any
detectable amount of a controlled substance is present in the
person’s
body, as measured in the person’s blood, urine, saliva, or other
bodily
substance.”

These bills represent an all out federal assault on the marijuana
smoking
community. Because inactive marijuana metabolites (inert compounds
indicative of past drug use) remain detectable in the blood, and
particularly urine, for days and sometimes weeks after past use,
this
legislation seeks to define sober drivers as if they were
intoxicated.
Someone who smokes marijuana is impaired as a driver at most for a
few
hours; certainly not for days or weeks. To treat all marijuana
smokers as
if they are impaired, even when the drug’s effects have long worn
off, is
illogical and unfair.

At a minimum, laws targeting drug drivers should identify “parent
drugs”
(i.e., THC), not simply inactive drug metabolites, and have
scientifically
sound cut-off levels similar to those that exist for drunk driving.
“Zero
tolerance” laws are neither a safe nor sensible way to identify
impaired
drivers; they are an attempt to misuse the traffic safety laws in
order to
identify and prosecute marijuana smokers per se.

Please take two minutes to contact your member of the House of
Representatives and tell them that these proposed per se laws are
neither
fair nor sound public policy by visiting:
http://capwiz.com/norml2/issues/alert/?alertid=5384696&type=CO

With your help, we can turn back or amend these dangerous and
unfounded
proposals.

PKD, the Unicorn, and Soviet Psychotronics

I tried to tell all this to the checkers at Trader Joe’s, the food
store where we shop, and they cancelled my check-cashing privilege.

PKD, Selected Letters 1977-1979

Philip K. Dick and Ira “the Unicorn” Einhorn, sixties radical
activist turned seventies New Age networker cum fugitive ax murderer,
began a correspondence in early February of 1978 centered around
Dick’s firmly held belief that the Russians were beaming psychotronic
(RF signal) transmissions via satellite into his already
somewhat-disturbed mind.

that all repressed trauma or emotion has been removed at this stage by the
ibogaine or that somehow there is a deffence against the ibogaine.

This seems very impressive and would be truly amazing but I was wondering
if anyone has had experience of this.  I haven’t read about anyone how
had that many ibo experiences.  Perhaps a person coming from a non-adict
background would gain more from the experience due to being less blocked
by drugs or alcohol? It’s an interesting thought all the same.

Luke,

I believe I may have been the first to perceive that ibogaine visualization
ceased after x number of ibogaine treatments but, this still remains
hypothetical as there is not enough data to determine whether it is true or not and
then, for what percentage of the patients.

It appears that some ibogaine providers believe that the effects of ibogaine
on non-drug dependent individuals would be greater than on drug dependent
individuals but, I think that is still open to discussion also.

Too bad there is not some universally accepted criteria for what determines
gain.  On the other hand, I believe that all providers believe that multiple
treatments over time are generally more effective than single treatments.

Hi All,
I’d like to say thanks to everyone for their advice and encouragment.  It’s nice to talk to people who understand the whole experience of ibogaine.  It’s been about 2 years since my first ibogaine treatment and it’s been rewarding and at the same time very difficult. I feel changed radicaly inside and it’s been very confusing to let go of my old self.  I’ve gone from seriously abusing alcohol and varius stimulants and now feel like I’m in a stage of limbo were I’m starting to feel stong desires to do something fullfilling with my life but have yet to figure out what I want.
For me it feels like having to relearn who I really am and now that my feelings and values about life are changing.  At times this has been a bit disconcerting as I feel extremly open emotionaly and felt alienated at times. There are times now that I feel fantastic though and most of my body feels much lighter and supple i think.  I find that much of my memories are coming back as the months go by and seems so amazing but also sad to be able to remember my childhood.  I’d been to psychotherapy many times but when asked about my childhood I could remember very little.
I’m trying to find a therapy bassed on emotional expression but I live in Ireland and I’m having a lot of difficulty finding such a therapy. I found a guy who does Rolfing in Dubling so I’m thinking of doing that.  I also found a site that deals with breathwork in Ireland.  I’m not familiar with breathwork though, so I’ll have to look into it more.  I might also do another ibogaine session a year after the last.  I find ibogaine very tough though.
Thanks
Luke

Hi Luke,

The drug is opening your body up. This is GOOD! Previously you weren’t aware
of the tension now you are. This is GOOD! Previously you were suppressing
your anger, now you feel it. This is GOOD! Basically, you’re doing great!
Now you need to get yourself into some regular therapy groups where you can
talk about issues and feelings and also resolve them physically – ie.
through emotional expression, breathwork, bioenergetics, or similar. Primal
groups or rebirthing are great for womb and childhood stuff. Check out the
net and media for what is available to you locally.

Like Bill says, cleansing is also good. A liver cleanse would be great,
energetically a lot of anger can be held in the liver. With the one he
suggests it’s good to drink a litre of apple juice a day (organic and
pressed if you can afford it) for at least ten days before actually taking
the epson salts and the oil/juice/black walnut tincture mix. It’ll will help
all the liver stones get out. A good strong colon cleanse will also help a
lot, such as the Arise and Shine 28 day one – check www.ariseandshine.com
(cleanse guide pdf) for details. And, whilst were on the subject, an
alkaline diet will probably help your body also with moving away from anger.
Acid food (ie normal western diet) drags down blood pH, raising stress and
the leaves us very open to experiencing primal feelings in low level stress
situations – the woman in the grocers short changes you and you have a
strong urge to kill her. If you move to a more alkaline diet the body will
be able to comfortably deal with daily stress without it starting to react
as if threatened.

Frankly, what I’d do is as much of the above as I could afford. It’ll be
great. Plenty of people in groups take years to even feel anger! You’re
blessed!

Nick

Legal Drugs Pose Greatest Health Threat, WHO Says
Thu Mar 18, 3:33 PM ET
By Axel Bugge

BRASILIA, Brazil (Reuters) – The health threat from legal drugs like
alcohol
and tobacco is much greater than that from illegal narcotics, the World
Health Organization (news – web sites) said on Thursday.

The first report of its kind by the global body found that dependence on
alcohol and cigarettes has a much greater cost for societies than illegal
drugs like cocaine and crack.

The Neuroscience of Psychoactive Substance Use and Dependence report said
that drug addiction is a growing problem, especially in poor countries
which
have rising rates of alcohol consumption and smoking.

There are about 200 million illegal drugs users worldwide, or 3.4 percent
of
the world population, it said. Illegal drugs contributed 0.8 percent to
global ill health in 2000, while alcohol accounted for 4.1 percent and
cigarettes 4 percent.

The percentages are based on a measurement used by WHO which gauges the
burden that premature deaths and years lived with disability impose on
society.

The “main global health burden is due to licit rather than illicit
substances,” the report said.

Men in rich countries are especially vulnerable to suffer from alcohol-
and
cigarette-related bad health.

“Health and social problems associated with use and dependence on tobacco,
alcohol and illicit substances require greater attention by the public
health community,” WHO Director-General Dr. Lee Jong-Wook said in a
statement.

The report also found that it may not be possible to fully cure drug
dependence because of long-term changes to the way the brain works.

Health experts need to consider a range of factors in treating drug
dependence because it is a disorder caused by genetic disposition, as well
as psychological and cultural factors, it said.

“Like major psychiatric disorders, substance dependence may not be curable
but improved effectiveness of available treatment has contributed
significantly to recovery,” said Dr. Catherine Le Gales-Camus,
assistant-director general of noncommunicable diseases and mental health
at
WHO.

The global launch of the report took place in Brazil, a country with
spiraling drug-related violence, which has in the past led to rough
treatment of drug users.

Any person can become a drug addict and that dependence is a disorder,
making it crucial to eradicate the stigma suffered by drug users that can
make treatment more difficult, the report said.

I & IBOGA
“For lack of a better word
The rats look bizarre”

On the subject of high dose(200+) methadone cold turkey (nothing at all) kicks: a few questions if anyone knows….

How long did your ‘sickness’ last?
When answering this, how are you defining sickness?…
is the subsiding of some physical symptoms (both medically measurable and non-medically measurable) while other physical symptoms persist still considered sickness? does sickness end when opioid is no longer present in the system?, or does ‘sickness’ last until all endorphin, etc. levels are back to normal?  does physical normal feel like the physical normal on methadone? does physical normal feel like physical normal before opioids?
I’m a bit curious to see so I can compare my experience.   Oh and does anyone know if higher doses of long lasting opioids  make the sickness last longer then lower doses or do they stay about the same regardless of dose size?

Does Anyone Care about Names? How Attendees at Substance Misuse Services
Like to Be Addressed by Health Professionals. Keaney F, Strang J et al.
European Addiction Research (2004) 10;2:75-79

Dear Colleagues,

At last somebody has asked drug addicts/users in treatment what they
would like to be called. “Patients” is the consensus, at least in
London. According to these authors, the use of ‘client’ to refer to a
patient dates back to at least 1970, when the nursing faculty at Wichita
State University considered the term ‘patient’ inappropriate for the
healthy seeking health-maintenance advice or going for an annual
physical examination. The authors quote Wing: “The recent trend to refer
to people seeking health care as “clients” implies to me a component of
human interaction that I would expect in the business world rather than
in a trusting helping relationship”. ‘Patients’ also have a status and
traditional rights which pre-date modern consumer laws.

In a survey of 150 mixed dependency patients, ‘service user’ was the
least popular term, identified as the preferred term by only 5% of
subjects. “Patient” was preferred by 66% of alcoholics, 52% of opioid
users but only 47% of smokers in treatment. “Client” was only preferred
by 24% of alcoholics, 46% of illicit drug users and 41% of smokers in
treatment.

While only a minority considered that they personally had a ‘mental
illness’ (38%), most considered that ‘substance misuse problems’ formed
a category of mental health illness (59%). The authors state: ‘Commonly
used pejorative terms such as ‘alki’ or ‘junkie’ prejudice appropriate
care and add to stigmatisation’.

Thus the majority here preferred the term ‘patient’, going against
current trends in dependency treatment services for the wider use of the
term ‘client’.

They conclude: “In a culture of ‘user involvement’ in substance misuse,
the results of this study should prompt reconsideration and revision of
our verbal and written communications with patients”.

Hmmmm.  I can see the problem right here.  If being ripped off by a junkie

Hmmmm.  I can see the problem right here.  If being ripped off by a junkie
caused someone to develop Animus; well … perhaps being ripped off by a
basehead would cause them to develop Anima, thus, PERFECTLY BALANCING
everything, and realigning the whole entire universe.

There ya go.  Problem solved.  That’ll be $350 dollars please.

Somebody should respond to this point-by-point. I don’t know if Antelope posted it, Maia Szalavitz or her boyfriend Peter, but repeats the old slander from ACT UP, that I want to throw addicts in jail so pot people can go free. All I ever did was advocate Dutch market separation, in a situation where methadone is prescribed, and pot is totally banned.

[I think I once said something like “If you take the pot cohort out of the equation (20 milllion people)–leaving hard drugs–you’re chances of getting busted for DEALING coke and heroin would go up way up”–hardly a non sequitur, that’s why Holland changed their laws in 1977.]

Where are the countless horror stories of folk whose ibogaine treatment failed? Antelope has spammed countless lists creating that impression, but there’s a lot of people on ibogaine@mindvox for whom it has worked, and no comparable list anywhere for the people who failed. And I never said I was ripped off by a junkie. The real story is more interested. I was harassed and physically assaulted for years by a junkie who claimed I OWED him money because he was smacked out and forgot to log in a payment for weed. Not only that, he got other people to denounce me as a rip-off (it was over a lousy thousand dollars) who were NOT junkies, but influential in the Yippie and HIGH TIMES scenes. AND he blew up my door with an M-80 just as Alice was answering it (she could have been blinded.) And when I responded in kind, they had me indicted on a seven year felony.

You can read about it in THE IBOGAINE STORY.

I’m getting tired of checking out a new forum only to see Dana’s already there, trying to overpower it with his wild claims for Ibogaine. I have been on methadone for over thirty years and never once encountered someone who’s tried it. I *have* read countless horror stories of people who have tried the stuff and been ripped-off, !@%$ed over, and the damn ‘treatment’ did nothing.

He is entitled to press any cause or venture he likes but he always throws in copious condescending comments about addicts. He once wrote me that he was ripped-off by a “junkie” (we resent the slight) and developed animus from that. I replied that there are good addicts and bad addicts (just as there are good drinkers and bad drinkers) and that the good ones have survived by staying in the closet. Unfortunately that leaves the jerks and/or severely addicted (co-occuring mental disorder figures largely in the cohort) to put a face to addiction.

It’s one thing for a Bob Bennett or a Mark Souder to malign us; know us by who our enemies are. But when I see MediMar and cannabis supporters hot to throw addicts to the mob just to make their cause look one iota more palatable to the Right, it really disheartens me. We are supposed to be more progressive and charitable!
Furthermore, if you think the “lock up all the junkies but free all cannabis prisoners” tact is going to get legal cannabis one second sooner you are wrong. I think it is counter-productive. After all, you cannot say that legalizing marijuana makes sense for getting it out of the hands of gangster dealers and then deny the same connection for the other drugs – it makes your argument a non sequiter. It also has the effect of making you look like you’d do anything, say anything, to get your pot – it confirms suspicions our enemies use.

Addressing addiction progressively does not have to be an albatross around pot’s neck. The provisions for sweeping change already exist in laws written to regulate treatment with methadone and buprenorphine. The successful examples of it’s use exist and are spreading because it’s been such a success. I’m talking about lifting restrictions somewhat on which drugs can legally be used to treat and maintain an addict. The Swiss heroin trials of the late Nineties were an overwhelming success ( No, I’m not refering to the infamous Needle Park which was unregulated laissez faire and drew legions of drug tourists) and were adopted permanently in a plebiscite. The treatment is spreading across Europe, being greatly expanded in Great Britain, and soon will be trialed in three Canadian cities. It was only incredible US threats (Louie Freeh) not to purchase any of the Tasmanian poppy crop for pharmaceuticals (and a misanthropic PM), that kept Australia from moving ahead as well. We can do that here as well. There are excellent drugs for all the various addictions. We can use Ibogaine where a person wants to try it and fund more research into noribogaine – a derivative with far less side effects and potentially better outcome. The idea is to free patients from government-mandated monopolies. Currently addicts are being gouged ruthlessly by methadone clinics where there is no feasible competition. And some addicts just don’t respond well-enough to methadone.

As for the soft drugs I would suggest we legalize anything Nature has given us (because it was given to us all equally) in the form of a plant. Thus, pot, coca leaf, opium, mushrooms, etc would be legal. We could use this to save the family farm by limiting the size of plots on which these products could be grown. Tax could be levied to pay for drug treatment.

Hi Bill,

You might contact the author and suggest the avenue of research you mention.
Throwing 18-mc and noribogaine into the research may also provide interesting
results.

Great study!

In this study, the effects of ibogaine on local cerebral glucose
utilization (LCGU) were determined in freely moving, drug-naive,
or morphine-dependent adult, male, Sprague-Dawley rats …
The rate of LCGU was determined by quantitative autoradiography
in 46 brain regions. In drug-naive animals, ibogaine produced
significant increases in LCGU in the parietal, cingulate, and
occipital cortices and cerebellum compared to controls consistent
with its activity as a hallucinogen and a tremorogen. Morphine-
dependent rats had only minor alterations in LCGU …
These findings indicate that ibogaine produces distinctly different
effects on LCGU in drug-naive and morphine-dependent rats. This
suggests that different mechanisms may underlie ibogaine’s
hallucinogenic and anti-addictive effects.

I wonder if a second dose of ibogaine were administered some weeks
after the first, if there would have then been normal LCGU effects
(assuming morphine was discontinued after the first ibogaine dose).
I.e. maybe the rats would have tripped once they had cleaned up, as
humans report doing. If so, and if there are indeed different mechanisms

(binding sites?) involved, why does it seem as if people often need to

get over the addiction before the more ‘psychedelic’ effects can occur?

It may be that there are two mechanisms but that one inhibits the other,

perhaps by absorbing the ibogaine more readily. But then that mechanism

disappears with the addiction. In any case, it would be interesting to
compare binding site activity in these two cases of ibo administration.

… However, in morphine-dependent animals, ibogaine produced a
global decrease in LCGU that was greatest in brain regions such
as the lateral and medial preoptic areas, nucleus of the diagonal
band, nucleus accumbens shell, inferior colliculus, locus coeruleus,

and flocculus compared to morphine-dependent animals treated with saline.

I wonder if a search for the ibo/addict LCGU profile could turn up
a drug that might shed some light on the putative separate anti-
addictive receptor(s).

Also, it would be interesting to compare the ibo/drug-naive LCGU with
those of similarly drug-naive rats on LSD, DMT, mescaline, etc.

Brooke,

1.) …kiss your noggin good-bye..?

2.) I’d be preparing at least 40 grms and taking at least 15gms on the
outset with
the rest on the rebounds, ie, after the first wave of vomiting and then
again after the second
and so on… Of course, this is all in equivalency, since you’re preparing
an extract…
You might be under the impression that one is to take the ibo all at once
and be done with it.
I don’t recommend that approach, I’d say go easy but psyche yourself up to
drinking the
whole thing over, say, 6 hrs.
Once you’re under the effect, be sure to fight the urge to down alot of it
at once- this is really important- it will come back up within a minute, no
more than 2-3 gulps at any one time.. (This is really based on the african
brew, however, while the extract ought to be easier, I doubt it’s less
volatile)
If you do this correctly, you’re gonna trip harder but much, much more
comfortable than on
the outset. So don’t go by first impression… If this is the highest-grade
rootbark, you’re
looking at 2.4 gms of ibogaine (40gms x 6%) If it’s average, maybe as low as
1.2gms which
just barely accomodates a full trip… I don’t think you ought to risk not
having enough by preparing
only 20gms and you’re pretty much in the safe-zone even if you did the
entire batch… Besides, I
promise you, you’ll hear this voice that’ll tell ya to ‘take more’ and it
also told me ‘no more’.. so when
all is said and done, you’re going to be playing this by ear… uh, no pun
intended….

3.) Consider borrowing a mini-tape recorder, it is about the one thing that
one can do at almost any point in the trip… you’re otherwise not going to
hold a pen,
imo, not even the following day….

4.) Be sure to remove wristwatch and the batteries from those annoying wall
units- if I were
your watcher, you’d have no indication to the time, I would even lie to
you…  As well, disconnect
the phone’s ringer, including having your watcher put his cell phone on
silent-mode….

5.) And yet another reminder- do this at night, start at night, after 10pm,
I can’t stress
this point enough and I recall Laurent Sazy and maybe Planteur mentioning
this as well…
Remember – this is your dark night of the soul….

Hello all,

Just to summarize, my name is Brooke Burgess, and I’ve posted several
times
in order to glean some of the intricacies of the process before I
undertake
my first journey.  I have 50g of rootbark from a reputable source, and
will
be taking off 5 days from work within the next two weeks to fully immerse
myself in the experience.

Here’s my current checklist – please feel free to make suggestions,
corrections, criticisms, and such – or contact me directly at
brooke@brokensaints.com.

–  with 190lbs of bodyweight, and being a first-time ‘non-addict’
experiencer (don’t nicotine and emotional trenches count for something?
🙂 ), I will be using 15-20g of rootbark.
–  I was referred to an online recipe to extract the vital components,
which
requires 700ml of vodka, a glass of red wine, and the juice of a lemon to
allow the plant material to ferment over one week in a closed container.
After this, I will boil off the alcohol and test the remnants for
bitterness
–  I will prepare a quiet space with images and items that trigger
emotional
memories and ties to serious blocks and blisses from my life.
–  I’ll have a strong and considerate ‘watcher’ with basic medical
training
and a spiritual understanding to veer me back onto ‘the path’ in case
things
go awry.  Oh…and don’t forget the handy bucket by the bed for sudden
movements.
–  I’ve set aside the pre-requisite three days for a slow and thoughtful
return to full mobility and reintegration with the ‘real’ world.
–  I will detox the days leading up to dosing, and not eat for 8 hours
before use.  As well, I will take a small sample and wait several hours to
gauge its effects.
–  I will write down everything I experience afterwards in order to share
it
with myself (at a more coherent time), and those who have supported
me…including the members of this board!

That’s basically it.  Am I missing anything crucial?  Thoughts?

Thanks in advance

If the dose of iboga is significant I doubt you will be able to write.  I
suggest your companion/guide have a tape recorder.  I doubt you will want to say
anything after a while so you might come to an agreement in advance that
during the peak period of visualization, if such occurs, that you are asked to
state what you are seeing every five minutes or so.  Don’t think about it, just
state what you are seeing.  Otherwise, the images will move so fast you will be
in the next image rather than indicating what you saw in the immediate image.
Once the peak passes you will be more able to speak without prompting but, a
voice actuated recorder may make it easier for everyone. Test the recorder to
make sure it is functioning as per expectations.  Ibogaine and dreaming are
very similar and you tend to forget a lot of what you experience so the
recording should prove quite interesting to you.  As Planteur said, and I agree
completely, have no expectations though I think there are others with significant
experience who believe in a very directed experience.  And, that is OK too.

Hi Brooke, My thoughts are………
I am so fucking jealous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
kidding sort of!
I have not done Ibogaine yet. I will probably have to go to treatment center somewhere as I have no one I trust enough as a watcher.
Please keep posted after the fact. I am very excited and curious as to how this will go.
Sounds like you have given this the thought required.
I feel sure you will get great support and feedback from the wonderful people on the list!’
Happy trip! I will be thinking of you!

Hi Tor, I am not real sure but I don’t think a video, per say, is available. The clip was online at one point, I think, but I could never get it to play. I figured it was because I was not broadband.
Someone else more in the know may be able to point you in a better direction. If they do, I will follow too cause I really have wanted to ‘see’ the kron piece.

Hi Torsten, in the future if you could please write
out what you want to say using one message instead of
5, all of which quote either huge messages or people
quoting people quoting people quoting…… until
what’s left is one really big message to which you
added a sentence! 😉

The video isn’t online anymore, I think they took it
off some days ago. Patrick are you putting it up on
Mindvox soon?

Hi to all the new people and hello david. How is life
after ibogaine did you stay clean after only the first
dose?

Be vigilant about press and media coverage. Sue
their fucking ass
if
they
are wrong. Companies understand money. Who are the
best spokespeople
for
ibo? I like Howard, Patrick and Mash. How about
you? Let the ego

what is
best for the cause? Do not become right wing
zealots protesting

For the record I hate Patrick and Mash and Howard
hasn’t really
accomplished
any thing with ibogaine in who gave that figure
before, 30 years?

Howard is at least sane, unlike Dana and the whole
pot movement who
I
think nobody in legit medicine is listening to.
Great scam if your
a
drug dealer but I havent seen the whole medical
marijuana anything
manage
to even get pot a drug that has never killed
anyone, legal in the
US.
Constant mentions of ibogaine by them is not
helping anyone.

The pro-pot movement has not managed to make pot
legal, a drug which
is harmless  and never killed anyone. They are
going to do something
with ibogaine???????? Never happen.

Nader is a asshole and its too bad but youre right.
Patrick and
Mash
on their own are really effective, together is more
then effective,
the
two of them in the same room are suddenly so human
and you can relate.
Its the darth vader and evil witch lovefest. When
the two of you
get
it on, do you do mother theresa and jesus or the
mom and son trip,
which
is hotter? Ignoreing what anyone else has ever
said, the two of
you have
some serious energy on camera and it’s not
scientist
and junkie.

Steve you work in hollywood and maybe are better at
seeing what
others
see when they look at the screen, but what all the
peace and love,
democratics
missed is that the person who gave the Deborah and
Patrick show
all that
exposure by putting on the front page of the drudge
report was matt
drudge.
A conservative republican who liked it so much he
has hallucinogen
that
cures addiction on page one of his site.

Conservative Republican. Not the Greens, not Kerry.
A Conservative
Republican.
I haven’t seen the Dems do anything for ibogaine.

Howard, Patrick, Mash. or Mash, Patrick, Howard. As
long as Patrick
is
in the middle to keep Mash and Howard away from
each other 😉

No pro pot idiocy which is only going to make
everyone ignore it.
No
weird rituals in africa, no discussions about
sticking root bark
up your
ass. Medicine that cures a disease is right.

Best, Steve Anker

PS: Patrick, stop being such a hippie pussy.

Don’t encourage him. Patrick has either been
blowing his brains
out with
LSD again or having a lot of sex, he’s been calm
and zen like for
at
least two weeks. When that wears off, we get Darth
Vader on acid.

Patrick the next message you’re going to write when
you read this,
don’t.
I’m sure it will move me, sweep me away, make me
relate, make me
believe
and up your genius ante another level. But you’ve
pulled Dana’s
neck
off the chopping block a few times already, he is
making peace by
being
nutso again and burning pirated copies of CSI’s
program and offering
to give them away. I don’t want to hear it.

He may be the kooky uncle, he’s lucky to have you
on his side, but
he
is not a effective spokesperson for anything, not
even pot. He should
move to hollywood and just be himself, forget pot
and ibogaine,
Dana
is enough material all in one person he doesn’t
even need the weird
causes.

No matter what you write, it won’t change that. I’m
sure you can
write
a believable message about why black is white and
make people relate
to it, but all it proves is that you’re a great
communicator. It’s
been
proven. Shut up now and let Dana suffer some of his
own consequences
because I am so sick of the bullshit. You’re as
nuts as he is but
as
you yourself said, he has no off switch. You do. I
don’t hear deranged
rants about tripping on LSD and lights and colors
inside your head,
when
you have the camera in your face. You forget all
about that. Because
you turn it off. This is exactly what you said.
Dana can’t turn
it off.

I’m putting this on the list after sending private email

It would be easier to write if there was a right or wrong
but
looking at the people on this list and the way they act and I do
not
mean the addicts, I’m talking about the treatment people, the most
pathetic
thing is the two of you did the best ibogaine story that’s come
out in
years. Besides this and JAMA what has been in the media about ibogaine
in the last two years is at the level of the national enquirer and
nobody
pays attention to it. I’m looking online and I see that ibogaine.net
went from being dead and having a hit rate of below 1 million to
where
it’s gone in two days, it’s at 30,000 because that ‘journalist’
who broke
the Monica Lewinsky story put ‘Hallucinogen that cures addiction’
on
the front page of his site.
Both of you are assholes. Patric you know the real story
behind
ibogaine instead of Mash’s self promotional hype but you keep on
protecting
her and lying for her. You make her look like mother Theresa. I
watch
this and I don’t believe it, instead of the ibogaine is dangerous
lady,
the two of you make each other look human and you lay on the shit
so
thick you have the reporter giving the warnings for you. I hope
both
of you end up with what you deserve and she’s using you. Go on Patric
flash your arm to the whole world and make the cash registers ring
all
over her over priced treatment. I love the links on the site, you’ve
removed any content that had any value and thrown it off the site
and
link to this
http://www.ibogaine.net/links.html
Laser hair removal, work at home businesses and treatment pimps.
When
is the used car lot coming?
It’s so funny how the man who invented the term ‘Treatment
Pimp’
is promoting it right now. Everything changes when you get paid
right?
I’ve kept almost everything I said in email out of this
message
my purpose isn’t to put even more dirt out there I think Steven
Anker
and Jerry Stahl with CSI are about to all sue each other over libel
and
slander so there’s no need. Sara maybe they need some shrooms and
to
smoke cannabis instead.
Patric I have less disappointment over you because you’ve
done
all of it, you represent who you are and the saddest thing is you
are
a incredible communicator. Writing, talking, your experience. People
are listening, especially when you flash your arm, you should have
it
framed. It’s too bad that instead of saying the truth you and Mash
have
your mutual admiration society and I won’t follow that up with everything
else I hear about the two of you but it is too bad that both of
you aren’t
more like the people you play on TV.
Patric you’re lucky that you can communicate because if
you couldn’t,
then Mash wouldn’t care about you either. Nobody who has ever had
anything
to do with her has ended up with anything except lawsuits and broken
promises, except for you. Because you never shut up and people listen
to you. Lucky you.
You’re both so full of shit, you can go exploit each other
and
ibogaine forever. Great gift to the whole world. I wish I could
find
more anger but at least she knows the science and you know the experience.
I wish I could find a better answer but there isn’t one with anyone
involved
with ibogaine, you’re all interested in the same thing, your own
egos,
Patrick and Debrah are only better at pimping themselves.
Sara it’s too bad that you’re right about so many people
and
things.
I pray Stan Glick comes through with something, because
there
is no other scientist working on anything, only a group of self
promoting
entertainers.

Kids, KidZ, ChildrenS … I step out of the room for 5 minutes and
alla
youz are beating each other over the heyd with sledgehammers.

All I’m gonna do, is step back a few paces and take a look at the
Bigger
Picture.  Have Dana’s recent actions been particularly helpful in
furthering the cause of ibogaine…?  Well, prolly not.  Would it
be a
good idea to occasionally roll the dice, and try to get a sanity
check…?
You bet!  Is anything that is being said here going to change anything?
Fuck no.  <Shrug>

Judging Dana within the context of nothing else besides his actions
in the
near-past, is not going to paint a very positive picture.  Whoopsie,

shit
happens.

<Taking a few steps back — I said I was gonna do that, remember?>
… all
of ibogaine really is this very weird, sweeping, psychedelic soap
opera;
with very strange connections where the most unlikely people intersect
at
certain points in time, and synchronicity takes over.

My VERY FIRST exposure to ever hearing about this thing called “ibogaine,


came in 1992 or early ’93, when some person from Cures Not Wars/ACT-

UP,
who was on MindVox, splattered the ICASH Treatment thing all over
half the
conferences (most of which had absolutely nothing to do with the
subject
matter … ‘course, if they had not done this, it wouldn’t have
caught my
attention, and I never would have read it, “Why the fuck, is this
stupid
bullshit, plastered all over the 3l33t h4x0R conference!?!??!”).
And, I
read it, thought it was really interesting, and then forgot about
it;
because, I mean, who the hell would want to stop doing heroin?

A few years later, around ’94/’95 I was hanging out in shooting
galleries
on the Lower East Side with Fred Gotbetter.  And Fred was basically
cool
people, and someone who had a really good heart.  He was also an
absolute
fucking disaster area, “I’m rich and I have a trust fund!”  Then
… why
are you a homeless person who sleeps in a cardboard box in an alley?
“By
choice man!  Say, can I borrow $20 bucks!?!?!?!”

And, oddly enough, that was pretty much the truth.  He had a trust
fund
which got shut down as soon as he was sprung again; he would clean
up,
stay clean just long enough for his executor to release some cash,
and get
resprung almost instantly.  Fred was actually IDEAL St. Kitts material,

and really would have thrived there!

But anyway, so there’s this guy who I see sitting next to me, bangin’
up a
bundle in one shot … and then, every so often, he vanishes for
a coupla
days, and returns … without a habit.

By 94/95 my heroin use was well on it’s way to being a PROBLEM,
which I
was trying to cut loose, without much success.  I hadn’t done URODs
yet,
but I’d been through pretty much every other treatment modality
that was
available.  And it just didn’t make any sense.  Because NOTHING
THAT
EXISTS — which I knew about — could accomplish what I was sitting
there
and seeing right in front of me … on a regular fucking basis.

I mean, it didn’t do shit for Fred in the long-term.  I think the
longest
I ever saw him stay clean was about 3 weeks; but what made a TREMENDOUS
fucking impact was seeing someone strung-out as fuck, going from
that
state, into a TOTAL reset, in ’bout 72 hours.

THAT caught my attention.  Everything else was like, well, whatever.
“Ibogaine is an absolute miracle!  I’ve done it 27 times now and
I JUST
KNOW it’ll KEEP WORKING right around ibogaine 30 or 35, and
furthermore…” <ClunK!>  Uhm … anybody got sum coke?  I think
Fred OD’d
again … if nobody is holding, he may, in fact, stay dead…  Eightball
anyone?

To compress what is an entire chapter, into a few paragraphs: Fred
would
do ibogaine, and then … NOTHING at all.  He wouldn’t change his
clothes,
take a shower, or actually do ANYTHING to move away from drug-dependence.
I mean, sorta obviously, ‘cuz he was back in the shooting galleries
three
days later.  Except he was only going to smoke pot and do nothing
else…
Which — to give him many props — lasted a few days, sometimes
a week or
two; but inevitably, he’d always get sprung again.

Was Fred Gotbetter — who had a GREAT name! — an effective spokesperson
for ibogaine…?  Well, in my case the answer is: fuck yeah.  If
I hadn’t
sat there and watched this surreal comedy routine happening right
in front
of me, I dunno if I would have ever paid much attention to ibogaine,

or
remembered it again.  And the only reason I knew what it was, is
because
some fucking annoying lunatic splattered it all over our system.

I exited NYC, didn’t follow through and pursue any of it, because
I
realized I didn’t actually have a drug problem — I just had CASHFLOW
ISSUES, which I solved — wandered the Earth, and landed back in
NYC, with
a killer habit on top of 200mg of methadone.  I tried to find Fred,
and
could not locate him.  Using hindsight, this was due to the fact
that I
was searching in 1998, while he OD’d and stayed dead — in Pieman’s
house
in fact!!! — in 1997.  @#*$&@#$ Time Machine!  WRONG YEAR!

While I knew who Howard was, I didn’t KNOW him back then; called
up,
nothing much was happening, there was Panama if I wanted to wait;
I didn’t
think to ask Dana; and … I wound up talking to Bob Sisko … about
25
times.  Who talked to me, and kept talking to me, and kept talking
to me,
and … didn’t have anything to sell me, yet kept talking to me,
and in
fact gave me Deborah’s phone number, and made me aware of her existence,

‘cuz in 1998, I had never heard of her.

Which is, eventually, how I landed at St. Kitts in 1999.

So, my introduction to ibogaine: some dysfunctional lunatic from
CNW/Act-Up splatters it all over MindVox; Fred Gotbetter, quite
possibly
the biggest ibogaine failure on the planet, keeps hitting a reset
in front
of me; and then Bob Sisko introduces me to Deborah.

It’s a strange world n’ shit.  I’ve adapted to my environment and
become a
strange person.  <Shrug>

– – – – – – – – –

So anywaze … Dana … is, a Complete Fucking Lunatic.  So are
most of my
friends.  This is okay.  The PROBLEM is, Dana lacks an [OFF] switch,

and
usually has no outer awareness of the fact that he’s being completely
fucking crazy.  But, if someone else is present, who Dana trusts,
that
just says, “Dana, you’re acting crazy again.  Just chill out.”
HE DOES.

Dana HAS done a tremendous amount of good for a variety of causes.
At the
same time, he has also effectively had himself edited out of history,

because he CANNOT SHUT UP and lacks that [OFF] switch.  This is a
bummer
and all.

Why does Iboga Therapy House exist…?  Because Dana never shuts
up about
ibogaine, and Marc eventually listened to him, and followed through.
Why
have a large variety of events related to ibogaine seen the light
of day.
Because of Dana.

Did Dana IRREPARABLY HARM and CAUSE DAMAGE TO “The Ibogaine Movement,

Mahn!”  Uhm … I don’t think such a thing is possible.  Look!  We
have a
HALLUCINOGEN that CURES DRUG ADDICTION!@#!@#!!!!  And … many of
its
loudest proponents are Complete Fucking Lunatics.  No!  What’re
the
odds!?!?!?

Anywaze, when people call me up and dump all the, “Dana is RUINING
ibogaine!!!!” material into my headspace; they are sometimes disappointed
that I don’t respond with a lotta fervor and passionately agree
with ’em.
I mention I’ve already had all these conversations years ago, and
I’m not
sure anyone listens to me, or believes it.  However, everything
sticks to
something on that wunnerful InterneT thing.  This is ONE message
— that
survived — in a thread containing roughly 50 of ’em, where I had
the same
reaction to Dana, that people are having RIGHT NOW:

<Setting the Wayback Machine to 2000>

http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/ibogaine/message/5152

Dana is less than perfect; he does a lotta damage, he does a lotta
good.
There is a balance within all that.  At the end of the day, has
he done
more good than harm…?  In my own opinion, that answer is: YES.
Which, I
think, is pretty much all you can ask for.  So, yeah, I guess he
is the
koOky UnclE!  Why not.

And, uhm, Dana … <Removing Armor, Ego, and Testosterone> … dude.
C’mon.  You’ve been talking about the Bwiti for approximately 300
years
now.  Isn’t it time to meet ’em…?  Philip K. Dick is hanging out,
and
discussing philosophy with Fred Gotbetter.  Well, some of the time.
Fred
is sorta busy; this is Kali Yuga and he made it to minor Sainthood.
St.
Jude always needed an assistant.

or did he shut it down and pack up and leave, because ethnogarden looks

To: ibogaine@mindvox.com
Reply-To: ibogaine@mindvox.com

I think Sandy is not an addict and has NO understanding of addiction or
the
different phases of recovery.
Her statement that “heroin addicts seem to be pretty well aware they’re
addicts and motivated to get off it”, is an observation a child could
make.
If desire and awareness were all that was needed to end addiction there
would
be no relapses!

ehe… that’s an excellent point.

It’s easy to rattle off a sentence or two “explaining” what “causes”
addiction, but the fact of the matter is that what causes and maintains an
addiction in an individual is a complex and subtle web of motives,
experiences, emotions, and behaviours.

Awareness is certainly an integral part of addressing an addiction, but
just being aware of a problem and motivated to fix it is only a small part
of the puzzle…

The term dual diagnosis is very over used and misunderstood.
It is like the old ‘which came first, the chicken or the egg’ saying.
Personally, when I began using I wasn’t depressed. I was young and looking
for a good time. Things just progressively got worse.
Of course I am speaking of depression as the other diagnosis in my
personal
case.
There are many schizophrenics and manic depressives that are addicts but I
feel instead of labeling them as having dual diagnosis the condition of
addiction should be separated and treated independently.

Well, in the case of dual diagnosis, I’m not sure the diagnoses should
really be treated independently, as they are often interrelated. Substance
abuse and the addiction that follows are often precipitated by an
underlying psychopathology. In my case, my heroin addiction (and drug use
in general) was largely an attempt to self-medicate my depression and
panic attacks. Until I really began addressing my emotional problems,
there was no way I was getting off dope. And until I began addressing my
dope problem, there was no way I could really approach my emotional
problems with any clarity.

I think the term dual diagnosis is used so frequently because it is quite
a common occurance. People with various psychological problems often
attempt to self-medicate, and that often leads to addiction.

While the converse is also true (that addiction leads to psychological
problems), I don’t think cases of this nature ought really be considered
dual diagnosis. If someone say, starts exhibiting symptoms of depression
after becoming addicted to heroin, I would question whether the person
should be diagnosed with a depressive disorder.

In any case, I think it is vital to determine what the order of causality
is . Otherwise, it’s very difficult, if not impossible to resolve things.

Great study!

In this study, the effects of ibogaine on local cerebral glucose
utilization (LCGU) were determined in freely moving, drug-naive,
or morphine-dependent adult, male, Sprague-Dawley rats …
The rate of LCGU was determined by quantitative autoradiography
in 46 brain regions. In drug-naive animals, ibogaine produced
significant increases in LCGU in the parietal, cingulate, and
occipital cortices and cerebellum compared to controls consistent
with its activity as a hallucinogen and a tremorogen. Morphine-
dependent rats had only minor alterations in LCGU …
These findings indicate that ibogaine produces distinctly different
effects on LCGU in drug-naive and morphine-dependent rats. This
suggests that different mechanisms may underlie ibogaine’s
hallucinogenic and anti-addictive effects.

I wonder if a second dose of ibogaine were administered some weeks
after the first, if there would have then been normal LCGU effects
(assuming morphine was discontinued after the first ibogaine dose).
I.e. maybe the rats would have tripped once they had cleaned up, as
humans report doing. If so, and if there are indeed different mechanisms
(binding sites?) involved, why does it seem as if people often need to
get over the addiction before the more ‘psychedelic’ effects can occur?

It may be that there are two mechanisms but that one inhibits the other,
perhaps by absorbing the ibogaine more readily. But then that mechanism
disappears with the addiction. In any case, it would be interesting to
compare binding site activity in these two cases of ibo administration.

… However, in morphine-dependent animals, ibogaine produced a
global decrease in LCGU that was greatest in brain regions such
as the lateral and medial preoptic areas, nucleus of the diagonal
band, nucleus accumbens shell, inferior colliculus, locus coeruleus,
and flocculus compared to morphine-dependent animals treated with saline.

I wonder if a search for the ibo/addict LCGU profile could turn up
a drug that might shed some light on the putative separate anti-
addictive receptor(s).

Also, it would be interesting to compare the ibo/drug-naive LCGU with
those of similarly drug-naive rats on LSD, DMT, mescaline, etc.

I think Sandy is not an addict and has NO understanding of addiction or the different phases of recovery.
Her statement that “heroin addicts seem to be pretty well aware they’re addicts and motivated to get off it”, is an observation a child could make.
If desire and awareness were all that was needed to end addiction there would be no relapses!

The term dual diagnosis is very over used and misunderstood.
It is like the old ‘which came first, the chicken or the egg’ saying.
Personally, when I began using I wasn’t depressed. I was young and looking for a good time. Things just progressively got worse.
Of course I am speaking of depression as the other diagnosis in my personal case.
There are many schizophrenics and manic depressives that are addicts but I feel instead of labeling them as having dual diagnosis the condition of addiction should be separated and treated independently.

Sandy says ”
Maybe you do an intervention and get them to do the Ibogaine treatment instead of a treatment program. But then when I read Dr. Mash’s reports, they specifically say the effects only last 30 days – 6 months. Then what? You can’t give somebody the emotional tools to deal with sobriety if their mental/emotional state is altered by Ibogaine. So like I’ve said before, what happens when the Ibogaine wears off and the person opts for their drug of choice instead of Ibogaine because it’s easier or cheaper.

This entire statement is so ridiculous! My mental/emotional state is so altered after detox I have done well to just get up and get dressed for 30 to 90 days after the last use of opiates.
You can’t ‘give’ anyone the emotional tools to deal with sobriety. Dealing with sobriety is a learned behavior.
Folks ‘opting for their drug of choice’ as she puts it is the entire problem of addiction!!!!

I just don’t think Sandy understands addiction and/or recovery at all!

Sandy says

You quoted a 70% recovery figure, that’s the same figure any decent treatment program has and is usually a monitored 1-3 year recovery figure. I don’t see any similar data on Ibogaine for a substance that has supposedly been used since the 80’s or before.

hahahahaha! I don’t know of any treatment centers that say they have a 70% recovery rate! Maybe 10 or 20 per cent!

So, Sandy…don’t know where you have got your information but I encourage you to go out and shoot drugs for a few years so you understand what is going on.

After a month and a half of no new ibogaine publications on medline, we now
have #239, and from Kansas.  Howard

Brain Res. 2004 Apr 2;1003(1-2):159-67.

Differential effects of ibogaine on local cerebral glucose utilization in
drug-naive and morphine-dependent rats.
Levant B, Pazdernik TL.

Department of Pharmacology, Toxicology, and Therapeutics, University of
Kansas Medical Center, Kansas City, KS 66160-7417, USA.

Ibogaine, a hallucinogenic indole alkaloid, has been proposed as a treatment
for addiction to opioids and other drugs of abuse. The mechanism for its
putative anti-addictive effects is unknown. In this study, the effects of ibogaine
on local cerebral glucose utilization (LCGU) were determined in freely moving,
drug-naive, or morphine-dependent adult, male, Sprague-Dawley rats using the
[(14)C]2-deoxyglucose (2-DG) method. Morphine-dependent rats were treated with
increasing doses of morphine (5-25 mg/kg, s.c., b.i.d.) and then maintained
at 25 mg/kg (bid) for 4-7 days. For the 2-DG procedure, rats were injected with
saline or ibogaine (40 mg/kg, i.p.). 2-DG was administered 1 h after
administration of ibogaine. The rate of LCGU was determined by quantitative
autoradiography in 46 brain regions. In drug-naive animals, ibogaine produced
significant increases in LCGU in the parietal, cingulate, and occipital cortices and
cerebellum compared to controls consistent with its activity as a hallucinogen
and a tremorogen. Morphine-dependent rats had only minor alterations in LCGU at
the time assessed in this experiment. However, in morphine-dependent animals,
ibogaine produced a global decrease in LCGU that was greatest in brain regions
such as the lateral and medial preoptic areas, nucleus of the diagonal band,
nucleus accumbens shell, inferior colliculus, locus coeruleus, and flocculus
compared to morphine-dependent animals treated with saline. These findings
indicate that ibogaine produces distinctly different effects on LCGU in drug-naive
and morphine-dependent rats. This suggests that different mechanisms may
underlie ibogaine’s hallucinogenic and anti-addictive effects.

Anybody care to dissect this? I mean, it’s not illegal where it’s legal.

Hi Dana,

OK, I’ll have a try. My comments in blue

sandy
Posted: Mar 15 2004, 02:42 AM
Okay, try to get back in here a little bit.

Dana, I think you don’t understand my position on Ibogaine completely. As a moderator, it was my job to enforce the rules of the board. This forum cannot allow links directly to sites that promote illegal activity. The gun people cannot link to sites that explain how to illegally modify a gun, for example. They can discuss the Constitutionality of not being able to modify weapons and they can link to sites that discuss that, as long as there are no instructions or selling of the actual parts, stuff like that. That’s the line I was drawing with Ibogaine links.

Yes, all sounds pretty fair to me.

As to Ibogaine itself, you seem to be saying the Netherlands program works because of Ibogaine. At least at one point. That is not true, Ibogaine is not a routine treatment in the Netherlands. I posted an article that outlined their treatment program. Addiction treatment is too important to too many people to distort. There are some experimental programs and that’s the best you can honestly say about Ibogaine treatment.
Absolutely, couldn’t disagree with this.
Now, as to my own personal view of Ibogaine, I do not see it as a magical cure. That’s not to say it might not have a place in treatment, although I’m really having a tough time figuring out what that would truly be.

What!?!

Dear Sandy, are you truly trying to say that you are incapable of conceiving a role for a multi-dependence interrupter, that has not only been empirically demonstrated to remove the symptoms of drug withdrawal, but has further been seen to allieviate drug craving for a period of time after use, and open the user up to meaningful introspection of their drug-using behaviour? Is this really what you are trying to say? I wonder…can you see a need for umbrellas when it’s raining?

Perhaps heroin addiction because that’s the toughest one to break. And for whatever reason, heroin addicts seem to be pretty well aware that they’re addicts and motivated to get off of it.

In about one paragraph’s time you are going to write “Addicts who are fully aware of their situation That is the minority of addicts.” Whilst you don’t specify heroin use for latter, it still concerns me that, from a position of responsibility, you can write such apparently contradictory statements back to back.

In addition, as to the statement “heroin addicts seem to be pretty well aware that they’re addicts and motivated to get off of it” itself, I doubt many drug workers would agree with this. In fact, I’d say they’d shake their heads in bemusement.

Moreso than other addicts, but it’s just tough to kick. It also might be just the thing for dual diagnosis, it seems for those people the medication is sometimes worse than the illness. It might even be good for cigarette addiction for the same reason. Most smokers really don’t want to smoke, it’s just a tough addiction to break. So there could be specific scenarios where Ibogaine could be essential.

Look, I’m sorry, but you are just waffling here and seemingly attempting to “please” the ibogaine crowd by accepting some use for the drug. I put it to you that you have NO meaningful knowledge or understanding of the issues surrounding drug use and treatment. What do you say?

But, as I’m sure you know, the key to most other addictions is denial. Which is where I have a hard time understanding how Ibogaine would be the broad panacea you describe. As I’ve said before, breaking through the denial is still going to be required to get someone to agree to Ibogaine in the first place.

That’s true of any treatment. If you’re going to criticize the drug in this way you need to isolate things ibogaine is not useful for that other treatment options are. Frankly, I think you’re the one in denial – denying your complete lack of knowledge of the issues. This is not a put-down, just an observation.

Maybe you do an intervention and get them to do the Ibogaine treatment instead of a treatment program. But then when I read Dr. Mash’s reports, they specifically say the effects only last 30 days – 6 months. Then what? You can’t give somebody the emotional tools to deal with sobriety if their mental/emotional state is altered by Ibogaine. So like I’ve said before, what happens when the Ibogaine wears off and the person opts for their drug of choice instead of Ibogaine because it’s easier or cheaper.

However you get people off drugs long term abstinence is going to be difficult.

I very much doubt that ibogaine is chemically active in the body to a meaningful level much after a few weeks (meaningful as in at an agonist-antagonist level, or via subsidiary psychological effects). What keeps you off is the learning, if it’s taken place. And it won’t always. No one is responsibly suggesting that ibogaine is a “magic bullet” or a “cure,” but it would revolutionize drug treatment were it adopted more widely. I have no doubt of this.

You quoted a 70% recovery figure, that’s the same figure any decent treatment program has and is usually a monitored 1-3 year recovery figure. I don’t see any similar data on Ibogaine for a substance that has supposedly been used since the 80’s or before.

For programmes claiming 70% – I’d check out how they’re creating data. What are the in-check criteria? How many follow-ups, over how many years, and what happens to the guys they can’t find? I doubt ibogaine gets 70%. I very much doubt anyone else is getting 70%. Data on ibogaine is inevitably limited because the stuff isn’t easily legally available. This will likely continue until it is. This isn’t a meaningful argument for not developing it. What we do know is that it most definitely is effective short term and that’s it’s likely safe to use in clinical setting – native tribespeople have been using the plant form for millenia.

Ibogaine may be useful for those who have been through the treatment process numerous times and continue to use. Addicts who are fully aware of their situation That is the minority of addicts. If Ibogaine became legal tomorrow, the vast majority of users in this country wouldn’t run to get it because they don’t see themselves as addicts in the first place.

Sandy, I don’t know if you’re a guy or a girl but you really need to check out how your mind is functioning here. One minute you’re running the stuff down in so meaningless a fashion it just makes you look stupid; the next you’re making contradictory statements; and the next you try and please people by magnaminously allowing some creedence to their view in your own disfunctional perspective.

In earnest hope of some clarity

Reply-To: ibogaine@mindvox.com

HI all and Callie,
I remembered something recently, when thinking about Callie’s idea that
I was an addict before I became a pain patient. This is wrong.
I was first introduced to morphine, intravenously given for months,
after a car accident when I was 16 years old. I got very strung out, but had
only been using it for pain, and didn’t know I was strung out, and didn’t
figure it out for years. The only addiction I had experience with at that
point was tobacco, but when, years later, I first experienced kicking heroin
when deciding not to buy a bag one night in Rotterdam, I lay there trying to
figure out what was going on and where I’d felt the feelings I was feeling
before when I realized – I had felt this kicking shit when I was released
from the hospital with a bottle of darvocet and sent home, kicking cold
turkey from morphine shots given every 4 hours for the preceding 2 and a
half months given intramuscularly, after having gotten them every 2 hours
right into the IV drip for the 2 months prior to that.
So, I became addicted to morphine/opiates directly due to being a pain
patient, and tried to find that high again for years and years without
really realizing that was what I was doing for ages.
Peace,
Preston

Hoping to get a copy of the article from David. Don’t know if it’s online.
He told me that BBC1 are pretty much confirmed to pick up his proposed
documentary. So this will be a biggie for ibogaine if it does go ahead.

Received the following email.

An interesting article in Saturday’s Glasgow Herald on filmaker David
Scott
who apparently filmed his own recovery using ibogaine for a forthcoming
television documentary:

How many medications do you have for the treatment of depression available
on the market legally?why?And then?

For the same reason you can have different ways of treating withdrawals from
Hard drugs.

Each person has the freedom of choice of, what kind of medication or
treatment is the most acceptable for them?

Do I want a drill ? Methadone? coma for three days? acupuncture? Heroine/or
synthetic opiate for free ?Or maybe Ibogaine? Or nothing ? Or Homeopathic
remedies? TAI medicine?or change blood every year?

But if you like to come off a high dose of Methadone and you are above 45
years old who is going to help you to come off?
No one methadone clinic will help,no here in Holland.
They rather make an addict believe that there is no way out and keep them
coming for the daily dose.

Sandy’s excuses for blocking Ibogaine websites from Ke>Perhaps heroin
addiction because that’s the toughest one to break.<

Actually, tobacco beats heroin hands down, to my own experiences.

Anybody care to dissect this? I mean, it’s not illegal where it’s legal.

Okay, try to get back in here a little bit.

Dana, I think you don’t understand my position on Ibogaine completely. As a
moderator, it was my job to enforce the rules of the board. This forum
cannot allow links directly to sites that promote illegal activity. The gun
people cannot link to sites that explain how to illegally modify a gun, for
example. They can discuss the Constitutionality of not being able to modify
weapons and they can link to sites that discuss that, as long as there are
no instructions or selling of the actual parts, stuff like that. That’s the
line I was drawing with Ibogaine links.

As to Ibogaine itself, you seem to be saying the Netherlands program works
because of Ibogaine. At least at one point. That is not true, Ibogaine is
not a routine treatment in the Netherlands. I posted an article that
outlined their treatment program. Addiction treatment is too important to
too many people to distort. There are some experimental programs and that’s
the best you can honestly say about Ibogaine treatment.

Now, as to my own personal view of Ibogaine, I do not see it as a magical
cure. That’s not to say it might not have a place in treatment, although I’m
really having a tough time figuring out what that would truly be. Perhaps
heroin addiction because that’s the toughest one to break. And for whatever
reason, heroin addicts seem to be pretty well aware that they’re addicts and
motivated to get off of it. Moreso than other addicts, but it’s just tough
to kick. It also might be just the thing for dual diagnosis, it seems for
those people the medication is sometimes worse than the illness. It might
even be good for cigarette addiction for the same reason. Most smokers
really don’t want to smoke, it’s just a tough addiction to break. So there
could be specific scenarios where Ibogaine could be essential.

But, as I’m sure you know, the key to most other addictions is denial. Which
is where I have a hard time understanding how Ibogaine would be the broad
panacea you describe. As I’ve said before, breaking through the denial is
still going to be required to get someone to agree to Ibogaine in the first
place. Maybe you do an intervention and get them to do the Ibogaine
treatment instead of a treatment program. But then when I read Dr. Mash’s
reports, they specifically say the effects only last 30 days – 6 months.
Then what? You can’t give somebody the emotional tools to deal with sobriety
if their mental/emotional state is altered by Ibogaine. So like I’ve said
before, what happens when the Ibogaine wears off and the person opts for
their drug of choice instead of Ibogaine because it’s easier or cheaper. You
quoted a 70% recovery figure, that’s the same figure any decent treatment
program has and is usually a monitored 1-3 year recovery figure. I don’t see
any similar data on Ibogaine for a substance that has supposedly been used
since the 80’s or before.

Ibogaine may be useful for those who have been through the treatment process
numerous times and continue to use. Addicts who are fully aware of their
situation That is the minority of addicts. If Ibogaine became legal
tomorrow, the vast majority of users in this country wouldn’t run to get it
because they don’t see themselves as addicts in the first place.

This was an omnibus response to several posts on the thread. Frenchy is a law enforcement officer in a small town. Broomer is a prohibitionist. Spookk is the husband of a mmj patient in Cali. Sandy is the moderator.
