Micro-Dosing / Re: Microdosing iboga while metadon tapping
« Last post by Foggy on February 12, 2018, 10:28:44 AM »
It is exactly that I'm afraid of,  but I hear stories of people whom do a full food dose the day after last methadone intake when the withdrawal is no longer to tolerate, and at that time,  say 36 hours after last dose there is still plenty of methadone left in the body.
As I understand kratom then it is not a opiates,  and will not be of any usage when my body is tolerant to 150mg perhaps if I were on 40mg a day,  I don't have access to natural opium, the closest I can get is street grade brown heroine, but again it will take me an hour just to smoke the sickness away, as I don't use intravenous.
Hope some body know some thing, about mixing the two in carefully low dosages.

Micro-Dosing / Re: Microdosing iboga while metadon tapping
« Last post by RhythmSpring on February 09, 2018, 02:30:12 PM »
Hi group.
I'm on a high dose of methadone 150mg
I scared of going cold turkey while flooding, think it's to high a dose.
But it's simply to big a mindfuck for me when I tap down.
Is it possible to take approximately  a third 1/3 my dosage and use microdosing of iboga to keep me on track.
Anyone have any experience in this?
Imagine to start with 40mg at morning 07:00 and at evening 16:00 take 1g iboga powder
Next day same thing and at the 5 day stop and if needed jump to 50mg and be psychological stable again.
An perhaps 5 days later do a flood dosage from 50mg to 0mg
I really need to get out before these methadone depressions get the better of me.

Hey! Hang in there. I have heard that, if you're on methadone, you need switch to a short-acting natural opioid FIRST (like poppies or kratom) BEFORE you wean off and then do iboga. I have heard that methadone and iboga is a dangerous combination, to have both in the body at once.

I have no experience with chemical drug addiction, so this is just hearsay for me. Hopefully some others will chime in.

Thanks I really don't mind the taste. San Pedro is just as bitter, if not more. That I make into a tea. Adding lemon, brings out the alkaloids. I chewed about  .83 of a gram today. felt a numbing sensation in my mouth. Not really anything else? Still not sure how much to chew on my flood dose. I'm waiting for a few weeks for warmer weather because I am doing it in a cabin in the woods with a meditation buddy who is familiar with ayuaska, San Pedro and is a long time meditator. I also know a equidorian shaman who lives part time in my town who I will confer with.
Sounds good! If you don't feel anything from .83g within 24 hours (sometimes it's more pronounced at night), then your tolerance is probably high. 20-40g, maybe? I'm not an expert, here, maybe someone else can chime in, or you can look up dosages that people have used on erowid.org.

Thanks for the reply. I was given this info from the seller that says he's in Cameroon? I am 185 lbs and have chewed a small piece of bark to see what it tasted like and to see if it was real. I also made a small amount of tea that seems to make me a little more alert. The bark I have is shavings and powder at the bottom. Do you have experience in chewing the bark? I might have a higher tolerance. I use San Pedro from time to time. Isn't there a formula per body weight. You would just chew 10 grams of root bark?

It's good to get opinions from experienced people who aren't making money off you. That's a lot of iboga and he stands to benefit from your using a lot. Independent sellers from Africa can be sketchy. Ibogaworld is tried and true (in my book) as are a couple other vendors.

Chewing is the way to go. If you make a tea, you are chemically changing it, and I don't know what that'll be like. You might destroy some alkaloids, change others...

Some sellers (especially independent ones) sell Voacanga africana as Tabernanthe iboga, and it ends up screwing some people over.

Anyway, I have no idea what you got. Assuming it's true iboga root...

Just chew it, man. Nothin fancy.

This does not seem like the traditional Bwiti way. My understanding is that they just chew the bark, straight. There is no need to make a tea or do any fancy extraction. Your digestive system extracts the alkaloids just fine.

Also, that is  A LOT of iboga rootbark and TA, both. Have you done this before? Have you taken a test dose? What's your weight? I know people who will flood on just 10 grams of rootbark. People have varying sensitivities, and it's good to know yours.

Flooding / Re: First flood. Thoughts and wisdom welcome!
« Last post by Rintrah on February 05, 2018, 05:33:55 AM »
Just some thoughts:
40 grams does seem like a lot as my impression is that 20 grams rootbark is about a flood dose. However the dose differs from person to person such as according to body weight, and it's also difficult to know how strong rootbark will be. This is why Ibogaine HCL is usually used for treating addiction. I can't say anything about alkaloid extraction, but my impression is that around 3 grams of Iboga alcaloid extract is a flood dose.
I hope that you can really get to the root of your addiction. It will likely take a long time to work through. I recommend getting help in whatever means is available, including the 12 steps program.
Personally I don't recommend taking a dose larger than a standard flood dose. A standard flood dose is very powerful, and things could go wrong including long-term negative effects. Keep in mind that taking Iboga will always be a risk... there's no guarantee that it will be 100% safe.
Wishing you the best!

Hi Dana, and welcome to the forum :)
I wish you the best luck with your journey and your recovery. I'm also dealing with another addiction, food, and am taking recovery very seriously, though I don't intend to use Iboga's help for now. But it's definitely a powerful tool.
