Many people have achieved remarkable success in overcoming a longstanding addiction through ingesting ibogaine. It is a powerful psychedelic drug derived from the iboga shrub, which can be found in the West African country, Gabon, and its neighboring regions. Unlike most other psychedelics, ibogaine can dramatically reduce withdrawal symptoms and craving. Hattie Wells is a psychedelic practitioner, ethnobotanist and drug policy reform advocate who was an ibogaine treatment provider in Britain for several years and is now working on clinical trials involving ibogaine. We discussed similarities and differences between ibogaine and other psychedelics, the details of ibogaine treatment, why aftercare is crucial but typically lacking, ongoing clinical research into the plant, uses of ibogaine for conditions other than addiction, and much else.
