Hi,
Chris Jenks supplied a better more low-tech guide to produce Ibogaine from the readily available Voacanga Africana. This helps with sustainability of iboga plant, and can provide a much cheaper means to produce ibogaine.

Market could run out by 2016, due to exponential demand and lack of adequate preservation in Gabon.

A lot needs to be done to preserve this plant for global use. ?Voacanga Africana to compensate etc...

Depressing. It looks like prices will go up and there will be market depletion, until sustainability efforts are ramped up over the years. So in the long run good news I think, but more needs to be done.

Regarding concerns for iboga/ibogaine sustainability, see this thread:
http://eboka.info/index.php?topic=2443.0

Received feedback from Jonathan, the Development Director of the Global Ibogaine Therapist Alliance ( www.ibogainealliance.org ) regarding the Iboga/Ibogaine sustainability efforts going on right now. There is some good news, the 4th International Ibogaine Provider's Conference in Durban 2014 is focused largely on this issue, and the alliance is working closely with Ethnobotanical Stewardship Council (http://www.ethnobotanicalcouncil.org/) and the International Center for Ethnobotanical Education (http://iceers.org) to address sustainability concerns.
 
More from Jonathan here:

"The conference is Durban is largely focused on this. We're working closely with the Ethnobotanical Stewardship Council (ESC) and ICEERS to kickstart a program called the Iboga Dialogues that will strive to create global consensus about a sustainability protocol. This dialogue will take place over the next several years, but in Durban we will craft a declaration and solidify our alliances to work on this. Shortly after I'll be heading to Gabon to start building contacts there.

We see the solution as a mixture of creating purified ibogaine from alternative sources such as voacanga, which is scaling up around the world, as well assisting cultivation projects to get off of the ground globally.

I'm hoping that we'll create a good foundation for this longer dialogue in Durban. Unfortunately, I haven't had a chance to discuss this with ibogaworld , and they didn't respond to our invitation.
"

General Discussion / legal liability for sitting
« on: August 28, 2013, 11:33:25 PM »
Hello,

If I were to hypothetically be a sitter for someone in a country where iboga/ibogaine is illegal (like the U.S.), where would I stand legally?

Please note, in this hypothetical situation, I would just be sitting, not providing, the person would have a separate provider they contacted that sent them the TA/ibogaine, and they would self administer. I would only be there to sit, along with a girlfriend say and at most help comfort/ease the journeyer or get help if needed. God forbid that anything happened, what would be the liability also? Would a liability waiver need to be created and signed? I think this would be a good idea.

Would love to get some feedback on this. PM if you prefer.

General Discussion / storage shelf life for TA?
« on: April 19, 2013, 07:10:57 PM »
Hello all,

I have some ibogaworld TA that I took back in late Oct. I still have 1.5 grams left that I immediately put into see-thru gel caps, popped into a small sealed storage container and left in the freezer for the last 7 months.

I was planning to take it next week. My question is, do you think it has degraded, and also, if it has, will there be any potential harmful by products?

i.e., should I take it, or throw it out? :-)

btw, I've heard mixed opinions about how long TA lasts, based on how it is made etc... (12 weeks etc..) HCL, I understand is stable up to 3+ yrs. The lady at ibogaworld told me, if it is  unopened in the package they sent, it will be fine for at least 8 months or more.

Thanks in advance!

Eboka Talk / 1.5g of TA Question
« on: January 31, 2013, 05:44:39 PM »
Hello,

There is 1.5g of TA in my freezer remaining from a flood I did last October. This is from a well know dutch shop.

I am planning on taking it soon, but have some questions. The strength I am assuming is ~70% alkaloids. ~35% ibogaine. This sound right?

At 160lbs this should put me at 14g/Kg TA, and 7g/Kg Ibogaine. Should I expect a flood? Seems like it. Basically how long should I expect to be in bed due to ataxia? Im not interested in doing a full blown flood, but a light flood would be ok.

I've considered microdosing with the TA. What would you recommend?

Any insight and comments would be appreciated.

Eboka Journals / Friday October 20th 3rd flood dose and Entity Questions
« on: October 21, 2012, 12:00:34 AM »
Hello,

Took 3.5 grams of ibogaworld TA 8pm on friday, finally was able to get of bed at 9am this morning, just over 36 hours after the dose. Still have very mild inbalance and very minor tracers about 48 hours after.  I didnt eat or drink anything besides some water and some juice for 24 hours before hand.
 
I mentioned my first 2 floods in this thread: http://eboka.info/index.php?topic=1664.0

My first experience was life changing and beautiful, and my second flood helped get me into a recovery program and I have been living a better life.
The second time I took a flood, it was a lot harsher, and an entity that reminded me of a grim reaper pulled a curtain across my progression (it was very clear it was doing this) and took me somewhere else whereby the trip seemed to change to be less intense .

This experience, I took all 3 1/2 grams at once.  The buzzing started about 1 hour in and forms and shapes started to appear. About 10 minutes after that, all of a sudden a presence made itself known, as clear as I am looking at this screen typing, this massive totem-like entity took over my vision. The whole background was black, and the entity was a glowing orange-brown and ha a bark like skin.
 
It looked just like this except the colors where inverted and it had a bark like texture on it: http://northernspirit.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/angel-of-the-north_1695920i2.jpg

The head was thicker too and is had an imposing manly like face, and I guess you could say it was like  totem: http://www.littleexplorers.com/crafts/na/totempole/totempole6.GIF

It towered over me and it's one arm ar or wing turned red and lurched forward and pointed backwards and to my left repeatedly. My vision turned in that direction and I headed that way.

Has anyone ever seen anything like this before on their travels?

What I got after that was a lot of intense repetative cartoon-like visuals that didnt seem to make any sense, nothing like my first flood.

Im pretty exhausted now still, but wanted to share this totem vision, as it was intense. I did have one other really interesting vision that startled me, much later in, post-peak. It was diferent from all the others, and it was a rapid moving, chanting extremely rapidly, old man, looked a lot like a catholic archibishop/priest, but was rapidly chanting incantations or something using its hands to trace out black circular lines & glyphs towards me. It looked pissed off at me, and it was unsettling. There was thunder and lighting crackling all around it too, then it was gone within moments. It was like something forced itself into my trip, I dunno.

Eboka Talk / Advice Needed. Drinking Extraction from 20g of bark?
« on: September 08, 2012, 12:19:17 PM »
Hello,

I have 19g of IW bark that I was going to take this weekend. After reading here I decided to do a basic vinegar extraction tek, as I heard that TA type dosage gives a better overall experience.
Being an extraction newb, I followed the tutorial: http://eboka.info/index.php?topic=7.0

I did 1 5 hour soak and filter through a T-shirt, and then 3 more 1 hour soaks through cheese filter cloth.



I got the following extract:
http://postimage.org/image/m9pjs1lbf/

I didnt do a coffee filter, but proceeded to the pyrex baking tray & 200 degree oven to evaporate the vinegar to get the TA. I noticed that the dried extract was stained and stuck on the surface, and even a razor blade was not being helpful in getting it off. Also it seemed like I have quite a bit less than 5g I thought I would get it seemed, so I decided to add a little water to help scrape off the TA, and ended up with this mostly water based solution:

http://postimage.org/image/w5qmror3f/

It has about 1 1/2-2g of chunks at the bottom of it that I weighed, the rest is due to unevaporated acetic mixture that i poured in with the water. The container has the processed bark.

So is it worth drinking this solution (I have drank mimosahausca before)? Also since my yield seems disappointing, is it worth stomaching the bark as well? Any tips with the baking/my extraction process?


How many grams should I expect with my process? Thanks for any help!

Introductions / Introduction and Question(s) :-)
« on: August 16, 2012, 07:49:23 PM »
Hello,

My background with eboga/ibogaine was to use it to get off of severe alcohol dependency and start a better life. In this I have been successful I would say.

I took a TA flood+ dose back 2 years ago at a clinic in Toronto, and another self-administered flood dose of ibogaine back in April 2011. The first experience was absolutely amazing. The second experience was an arse-kicking session as I drank again on vacation and didnt adopt a proper recovery program. After the second experience I have been in full recovery!

Now I am ready to try the root bark. My intent is to help overcome a situation I have been in for the last 5 years. The first trip revealed much about this issue, but I want to explore it deeper to gain more insight on root causes.

My first question is, when is the best time during the eboga trip to ask questions to the plant spirit? I have questions I will have written down. I have about 15~18g of root bark from ebogaworld and I weigh approx 160 lbs, so what would be the recommended dosage for a real deep experience. Any tips on timing the series of dosages?


Many thanks for this site!

-G
