Iboga refers primarily to a few ibogaine containing rainforest species of plant, principally Tabernanthe iboga and Tabernanthe manii, amongst others. Although the ibogaine alkaloid can be found globally in variations of the Apocynacae plant family, the most famed source of ibogaine is the Central African rainforest shrub Tabernanthe iboga.

In smaller quantities, ibogaine stimulates the central nervous system, providing greater energy and increased wakefulness. Larger quantities of ibogaine are often referred to as a ‘flood dose’ and may act as a catalyst to an oneirogenic state of consciousness, during which users report visions, dream-like states, and resurfacing of repressed memories.

In the mid 1950s U.S. patent 2813873 was filed after scientists achieved a full organic synthesis of ibogaine hydrochloride. This process was deemed too arduous to be of commercial benefit, demonstrating how little attitudes have changed regarding profitability (or lack thereof) of addiction treatment in the past 60 years. In addition to weak profit margins, ibogaine’s outlaw status in several countries has curtailed research into its benefits. Despite this, a medical subculture of individuals who recognize ibogaine’s wide ranging benefits is rapidly emerging.
