General Discussion / Re: Anyone tried using homeopathic dosages of iboga?
« Last post by Alexandra Lost on April 08, 2018, 07:10:14 PM »
First, I would want to know the specifics of these homeopathic extractions and if they are truly homeopathic. Because that’s not the same as low dose. True homeopathic medicine relies on the idea that the substance changes the nature of water itself and that those changes persist even after the substance has been completely diluted out of the water ....that  water somehow holds a memory of what used to be in it.  I find this concept hard to swallow, as it were and even if it that part was believable I’m not sure that anyone’s attempted to explain the mechanism through which the altered water attains the same medicinal effects as the original substance.

But sometimes this gets confused and some people refer to really low doses as homeopathic. I have had real success with really low doses of root bark. I think I mentioned in a previous thread that I would microdose at 35mg of root bark a day ... I would literally open a 350 mg capsule and break it up into 10 doses.

I have an extraordinarily high sensitivity to SSRI’s, and I think I was reacting to an SSRI component of the bark, and that in higher doses this effect was dampened by the other psychoactive components of the root bark.

 I did have a profound experience like those described while doing this kind of micro-micro dosing.

But I was also working extensively with yoga and meditation practices during that time and I was participating in a workshop on pattern-shifting when I had the experience. And since then I have had similar shifts from just the yoga / meditation modalities. The  experiences always involve dreams, too.

It seems like all the cases in his case studies ( which are really no more than anecdotal, there doesn’t seem to be much scientific rigor in those studies) were people that were ready to change. And were talking to someone about it. And they believed they were taking a miracle drug.

That plays a large part. Now, low dose iboga can certainly open a lot of doors for someone that wants to change and is willing to do other work and combine it with other practices.  I did this with amazing results.  But if it was truly homeopathic, patient expectations alone might have yielded those results.

Day 1:

300mg root bark in the morning + 200mg an hour after

Other psychoactive drugs during the day: kratom, phenibut, caffeine, nicotine

No adverse effects, just a little bit more stimulated. Will report back tomorrow

Edit: Smoked some weed before bed and it was potentiated a lot! I haven't been this high for ages. I was still quite stimulated, but the weed knocked me down and I slept perfectly fine.

It had been down for a quite a while, was hoping all of the great stories and data on here didn't get lost. Thanks to whoever brought it back.

I have bee initiated into the Missoko Bwiti. Couldn't be happier with the decision to do it. It is an excellent chance to really take a deep look at your life and gain clarity moving forward.
Let me know if you have any other questions.

I personally have had no experience with homeopathic iboga delusions.

Ahem

Dilutions.

:P

Good to know. I am wondering what you make of the stories in the link above? Do you think these are made up/exaggerated?

Introductions / Re: My Birthday, in more ways than one

Long time, everyone!

I just thought I’d pop in with a quick note to let everyone know I’m still around. And still clean - although there were a few occasions where I took a couple of grams of kratom for energy - I’m still not perfect or anything:).

But no opiates. And I have a much better life now. 5 years ago I was very distant from my family but now we have reconnected and are very close. And, through my yoga practice,  I have made lots of friends and I feel that  I am part of a community.

This is what keeps me clean. The life I have now is not compatible with addiction. Connection is really the key.

Thank you for this.

Sounds like it potentiated the weed kind a bit. What was your dosage when you combined it with weed? And did you find the overall effect of iboga more effective in combination?

Kratom is still an opioid, and it's relatively new to the Western world, so there isn't a lot of research/experience to speak of. Maybe it's not as dangerous as say, heroin, but that doesn't mean kratom is safe to combine with iboga, even at small doses. Same stuff could be said about phenibut.

This is largely uncharted territory.

Weed+iboga can be very powerful. In my experience, it's like couch lock times a bajillion. It can make time seem reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally slow, and make you just wanna curl up in a ball in a hole inside a cave. The first couple times I did it, even in tiny doses, I felt too stoned to form a complete sentence in my own brain. : P

I understand the problem with harder opiats, but kratom? No one died from respiratory depression caused by kratom. And as benzos aren't a concern, I hardly doubt phenibut is a problem. I haven't read much about stimulants though except someone who mentioned caffeine synergizes well with iboga. Should I ever touch an amphetamine, I would take the smallest amount possible and none that effects serotonin in any way.

Btw. is it true weed potentiates ibogaine? Someone claimed a single hit on his bong made his microdose almost feel like a flood dose.

This is dangerous territory, in my estimation. I don't have any experience with using those substances, but iboga and those other drugs (not weed) have bad interactions at any dose. It's just that at a smaller dose, the bad interaction will be not as strong, but it will still be there.

What you're describing here some people call "dirty maintenance." It's tricky territory from what I hear. Please be safe. I encourage you to wean yourself off those drugs beforehand with the faith that iboga will help with the withdrawals and make life without drugs more livable.
