Ibogaine is an indole alkaloid found in the root of West African plants (e.g., Tabernanthe iboga or Voacanga africana). In low doses, it has a stimulant effect and is used by indigenous people against fatigue, hunger and thirst. Higher doses of ibogaine (from 5-10 mg/kg body weight) have a hallucinogenic effect and are used for ritual ceremonies.
The active ingredient is also known to be an effective agent in the withdrawal of substance dependencies. However, due to various side effects and toxicological findings, ibogaine has only limited approval as a drug.
