Ibogaine is a psychoactive substance that occurs naturally in a variety of plants. It is a psychedelic substance that carries dissociative properties. Early research suggests that this compound can be used to help people recover from drug addiction, but an overdose of ibogaine can also be toxic. In addition, people use ibogaine to have transcendental experiences, focusing on themselves while also getting in touch with their spirituality. Ibogaine is mainly isolated from the bark of the iboga tree, which is found throughout Africa. When people take ibogaine, the psychedelic effects typically last between four and six hours. During an ibogaine experience, people make an effort to overcome their fears and defeat negative emotions. It can lead to an altered state of consciousness that is commonly compared to dreaming.
