What is Ibogaine?

Recognized as a powerful addiction interrupter

  • Ibogaine is a naturally-occurring molecule derived from the root bark of the iboga tree and other plants. It is a potent and serious medical psychedelic which has addiction interrupting properties.

  • Ibogaine has a “Prescription Drug List” status in Canada (vs. Schedule 1 in the US) facilitating research and development toward medicalization.

  • Ibogaine targets multiple receptors across multiple sites in the brain and metabolizes into noribogaine, a serotonin re-uptake inhibitor that remains in the body for 1-4 months, associated with elimination of addictive cravings.

What is Ibogaine?

How does it work?

Ibogaine targets multiple receptor sites in the brain when It manages dopamine and serotonin circuits & may stimulate new brain cell growth. This creates an opportunity to change behaviours. Paired with our treatment protocol, Ibogaine alleviates withdrawal symptoms and interrupts the process of active addiction.
