Tabernanthe Iboga Tree

Iboga is a tree which grows in West Central African rainforest where in countries like Gabon, Cameroon and Congo it's been used for centuries for its medicinal and ceremonial purposes. It's been part of the spiritual tradition called Bwiti used for guidance, healing, as a way of passage and way to understand life. Its medicinal qualities and therapeutic psychoactive effects were traditionally used for healing and initiation but also to maintain the peace and harmony within the village. As a spiritual tool iboga was used to achieve enlightenment.

Since pure iboga rootbark which was originally and traditionally used by Bwiti is very harsh on the body at Iboga Tree Healing House we use both: Ibogaine / Iboga TA extract and ibogaine HCL extract depending on the patient's individual needs and the purpose of the treatment.  Nowadays those forms of iboga are the most commonly used in the clinics.
