Ibogaine is a natural substance that comes from the Tabernanthe iboga plant, and it is sometimes used to treat substance addiction. Ibogaine has been demonstrated to be effective in the treatment of substance use disorders by reducing withdrawal symptoms associated with detox and reducing post-acute withdrawal symptoms.
Ibogaine can cause psychoactive responses by working as a k-opioid receptor in the body. It can cause physical effects, hallucinogenic effects, and psychological effects.
In low dosages, the drug increases energy and acts as a stimulant. In higher doses, it can have hallucinogenic effects and ease withdrawal symptoms by interacting with neurotransmitters in the brain.
