A full dose of pure ibogaine (upwards of 200mg) is highly potent, interacting with various brain receptors to regulate emotions and thought. Ibogaine ceremonies or retreats usually last for a few days and various anecdotal reports warn against treating ibogaine as a casual drug. One user recommended an ibogaine experience only “if you want your body to explode into 1,000 pieces and then rebuild itself into something beautiful.”
However, if you are looking for something less intense, you don’t need to commit to a full dose or leave the country to attend a ceremony. Microdosing ibogaine is possible.
