For those who are not familiar with traditional medicines probably would have never known the plant as they might never even heard of the name of this plant. Tabernanthe iboga, or also often simply referred to as iboga, is a rain forest and psychedelic perennial shrub which is originally from western Central Africa. The iboga plant can stimulate the central nervous system when consumed in small doses. This plant can also induce visions in larger doses. In some parts of Africa in which a lot of plants grow, the local people also consume the root bark of this plant by chewing it for various ritual purposes. Now, the function of Ibogaine has been expanded with the addition of being as active alkaloid used to treat addictions. In consuming ibogaine, the same with any other medicine, it has to be taken in the right proper dose, which should never be over and better not less as well. Otherwise, it can make the one consuming in danger, instead of help escape from the illness that is aimed to be cured. In order to provide a better understanding about being over dose from ibogaine, below will be the explanation.
If consumed in a strong dose, the ibogaine effects often include vomiting and getting nausea which may also be followed by dreamlike visual hallucinations than can last for around 3 up to 4 hours, numbness of skin, and mild auditory. The first onset of the ibogaine effects usually begins within 45 minutes to three hours. After that, commonly, all of those will frequently be followed by several intense events that can be significant in determining the life of the patients; these particular events usually will be lasting from 8 until 20 hours. Some other physical effects such as difficulty to get sleep may happen as well for an additional day or two.
