Micro-Dosing / Tachycardia from weed while microdosing
« Last post by Mind-Expansion on April 25, 2018, 11:27:48 AM »
Hey,

I've been microdosing iboga root bark +/- half a gram for about two weeks. Each time I try smoke some weed now, I experience moderate tachycardia with about 90 bpm for 1-2 hours until it wears of. I've been smoking for years without a problem. Dose anyone have an explanation for this?

I hope you are right. They replied to me few hours ago and the order should arrive soon. You know I ordered the TA 7 weeks ago. They recommended the faster and safer courier which costs more, claiming the order would arrive within a week. I repeatedly asked them which courier service they use but they didn’t tell and I lost patience and posted about it. Now iam wondering what happens. Let’s see

Unfortunately I still didn’t receive the TA I ordered from IW and didn’t take any iboga to report about. They claim that the order has been returned and that they have resend it again to me although I can’t trace it with the tracking number provided. I guess I have been ripped off. I will update it if I receive it anyway. However iam thinking about selling my car to go for a retreat.

How is that being ripped off? What would be being ripped off is if they said, "Oops, sorry it got lost in the mail!" But they said it got returned to them, and now they are resending. IW is pretty reliable in my experience.

Flooding / Iboga treatment/ retreat/ clinic etc. in Asia ?
« Last post by Justbe on April 16, 2018, 08:17:59 AM »
Can anyone recommend a reliable retreat in Asia for treating depression?
Any experience with iBogaine Thailand?
Asia is for me easier to reach. Thanks

General Discussion / How does Iboga cause heart issues?
« Last post by thought_machine on April 11, 2018, 04:48:09 AM »
I have looked into this quite a few times but can't find a definitive answer. It seems that in the instances in which Iboga/Ibogaine has been identified as sole cause of death (i.e. not because the patient has been in withdrawal from opiates or any other risk factors), deaths have occured because it has affected patients hearts. I would like to understand exactly what Iboga does to the heart (i.e. does it make the heartbeat irregular, make it slow down etc)?

What I would like to understand is how it affects the heart, ie. what chemical within Iboga is responsible for affecting the heart and is this risk associated with all formulations (ie. root bark, TA, HCL) or is it less likely to occur with specific formulations, such as Ibogaine HCL? Also, is the risk of heart problems also likely to occur if taking Voacanga Africana as an alternative to Iboga?

Could risk of heart problems be ameliorated by taking for example, magnesium taurate or magnesium orotate alongside the treatment (magnesium is essential for the heart and these types are specifically useful for stopping things like irregular heartbeat etc?) Presumably the Iboga spirit would be more attuned to something natural like magnesium which most people lack in their diet, rather than some pharmacological heart drug which could adversely affect the treatment?

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.

Micro-Dosing / Re: Microdosing for tolerance reduction
« Last post by Mind-Expansion on April 08, 2018, 04:29:12 PM »
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.
