Ibogaine Research Work
Ibogaine’s research is showing outstanding results compared to conventional medical treatments.
In 2016, The Pharmacotherapy Grand Rounds published “Ibogaine for Opioid Use Disorder: Can We Root Out Addiction at Its Source?.”
Here are their findings, n= 41 patients, and their abstinent outcomes:
- 15 were abstinent < 2 months
- 15 were abstinent 2-6 months
- 7 were abstinent 6-12 months
- 10 were abstinent >12 months
- 5 unknown cases
The Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam also published a study, “Life after Ibogaine An exploratory study of the long-term effects of ibogaine treatment on drug addicts.” This study looked at a number of average months ‘ drug-free’ as a result of a number of drugs used and as a function of a number of ibogaine treatments. Their results were:
“The overall average drug-free period (from primary and secondary drugs) of the entire sample was 21.8 months. The median that was measured was 6 months. These results can be seen in a positive light, especially considering the same sample’s experience with other addiction interrupting treatments (such as rehabilitation clinics, 12 steps programs, methadone detoxication, psychotherapy, etc.).”
Unfortunately, ibogaine is still a Schedule 1 drug in the United States limiting the amount of research performed to date. Both studies showcase promising results but we point out that ibogaine is not a ‘miracle’ substance, it does take willpower to stay off drugs- but it definitely gives you a step ahead to get started. We have witnessed the power of this plant medicine and we are eager to help you on your wellness journey.
