Session Info: Appropriately called the “Mt. Everest of psychedelics,” iboga is quickly becoming prominent in the psychedelic renaissance. It is powerful, psychologically complex, and medically sensitive. This medicine presents unique needs and challenges with regards to preparation, integration, medical support, and safety.

Though these medicines are famous for drug detox & healing addiction, those are just the first basic functions; they can offer human beings much more than that from a traditional perspective. For many people, iboga is the ultimate medicine for the human mind and soul-aligned neurological performance.
