Newbie Micro-Dosing Question
« on: March 27, 2011, 02:46:56 AM »
microdosing after your flood dose would be a great idea
first daily, then 3 - 4 / x week, then once a week


Hi. Just wondering what micro dosing is in terms of mg/kg body mass, % of flood dose, or physical sensation. I can't imagine doing this indefinitely, so how long would one micro dose? While I have some iboga root bark, I have yet to take it and would like to get the most out of it when I have all the conditions ready for a dose.

Hi Sagasu,

How are you feeling??  Do you need the rb?  If so get some gel caps and fill with the rd about 250mg and see how ya feel take it when things get rough.  Some people take it for months.  Another thing you may want to consider is naltrexan but you got to be clean to take it at least 2 weeks and maybe longer for methadone and do not take it if you using sub.

Best,

 Roy

I did not list an exact dosage since it is person specific (not weight specific)
some people find 300mg too much, some find 1.5 gm not enough
(sorry we do not define microdosing according to G-dad  ;) )

many found this schedule effective

1st week  1 gm a.m. +  1/2 gm pm
2nd week  1 gm a.m.
3rd week  1/2 gm a.m.
4th week 1/2 gm every other day a.m.
second month - 1 or 2x a week

you want the lowest dosage possible that you feel is affective

you want to use the "enhanced time period" to learn how to live healthy
and create positive living habits

sort of a power training course

hope this helps

Thanks. I will consider this after I do my flood. I don't think naltrexan will help me as the closest I have ever been to opioid use is a poppy seed bagel. Caffeine on the other hand...  ;)

On that note, I should ask if the microdosing is intended for people getting off addictions. Is it? If so, it's not for me.

Microdosing can help everybody..

Iboga can be used for addiction, or psychospiritual purposes.. Any way basically.. You can flood for addiction, you can flood for healing and learning. Same with boosters, and same with microdoses.

Although with addiction generally it's recommended to start with a flood and then go from there.

Microdoses, by definition, are sub-psychoactive doses. You take amounts so small you don't even feel it at first, but you take it continuously to take advantage of the cumulative effects of the ibogamine alkaloids.

In my experience, microdosing isn't really spiritual, and you won't learn so much from it.. For addiction, it helps to lower tolerance, and it helps a tiny bit with withdrawals.. But the main thing microdoses do, for me anyway, is help improve mood.. Iboga is the most powerful anti-depressant I've ever tried.. I literally feel in a better mood an hour after taking a microdose.. And not in a euphoric, 'getting high' kind of way.. It's very subtle. I just suddenly notice that I'm in a much better mood.. feeling more motivated and happier.. After a few days of it, when the effects have built up a bit, I notice I start to feel a little bit spacey.. And my thinking changes somewhat.. A little bit more clear, and linear.

But microdoses are brilliant.. In my opinion it is an incredible thing. I think almost everyone in the world could benefit from taking small microdoses of Iboga a few days a week.
Embrace this moment, remember: We are eternal. All this pain is an illusion.

Good to know. Thank you,digital phreedom and everyone.

I have some other things I will try on the way before I will do my flood, specifically Sceletium tortuosum and gotu kola. From the sounds of things, though, they pale to iboga in terms of mood enhancing.

I've heard iboga leaves many people with a nag-free head. I have started to get there for brief moments with meditation and mindfulness and look forward to more with iboga and possibly helping to maintain that with micro-dosing.

Are you talking about rootbark? TA? HCL?
Is this (http://www.ibogaworld.com/shop/products/IbogaWorld-Capsules-35-x-300-mg.html) rootbark?

In the above week-by-week protocol, do you mean 1g once for the first week? Or do you mean 1g every day for a week?

I'm pretty sure Vavar was referring to bark. And yes, the IW capsules are bark. I'd guess 50-100 mg TA is about equivalent to 1g bark. I got huge benefits from eating small amounts of iboga daily for several weeks when I first got introduced to the plant. I hope it does the same for you.

Thank you VaVar!

How much do you weigh?

I weigh ~120lb (pretty skinny) so I imagine I'll require a smaller dosage anyway. I'm thinking I'll equate your .5 with .3 and buy from IW.

"In my experience, microdosing isn't really spiritual, and you won't learn so much from it.. "

I would say my experience has been soundly contradictory to that.

I weigh about 150 and 1gm of RB has me connected, uncovering self truth and pondering for days afterward. My practice is enhanced and deepened by this irregular addition of bark in profound ways.
