I recently purchased 5g of Iboga Rootbark in 22 x 230mg capsules. It came in the form of a powder.

The reason I bought it was because I saw in Tim Ferriss' book the Tools of Titans, one of his interviewees microdoses Iboga HCL. However, I couldn't afford that form.

The person mentioned takes 1/200 of a flood dose on Monday and Friday mornings. This is what I will be doing. I will probably take 100mg of Iboga Rootbark powder on Monday and Friday mornings and see how it goes. What do you think? Will this boost my creativity or benefit me in any way whatsoever? Because I have noticed that lots of people are having quite harrowing experiences from Iboga.

Will keep you all posted with the progress anyhow.

Micro-Dosing / Re: Persistent Headaches continuing 5 days after micro dosing

Hi,
Half a gram of TA isn't really a micro-dose, it's more of a medium-dose. In my experience iboga sucks a lot when you go halfway. It works best when you either do a full flood or do sub-threshold doses.

Anyway, maybe there are other things you can do to help mitigate your headache. Exercise, drink plenty of water...

Come to think of it, when I microdose iboga, I find my eyes burning and my head hurting... whenever I am using the computer. Maybe take a screen break for a while and see how you feel.

Micro-Dosing / Persistent Headaches continuing 5 days after micro dosing
« Last post by peter_77 on February 13, 2018, 01:22:36 PM »
I took half a gram of Iboga TA  on february 7th of this year and had a disturbing experience where i was pounded with perpetual profound negative thoughts for 24 hrs straight. It seemed these negative thoughts had a painful physical effect to my brain every time they came at me ( slicing pain ). It felt like my brain was under attack. Most of my symptoms went away except for this bad headache Ive had ever since (its been 5 days).  Are residual headaches normal after microdosing iboga? could these headaches be a permanent side effect? Im wondering if its from the psychological effects of the experience that caused the headaches or if Iboga altered my brain chemistry in a way that is now causing headaches.

Kratom is an opioid. Have you tried it? It might help you. It's been used by many ex-addicts in this process.

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.

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.
