If you found this blog post you’re probably wondering about the effects of Iboga for depression, in the following post we will give you a break down of it’s history and usage to date. In December 2020, Iboga as an antidepressant treatment made the headlines, following the publication of a paper in science journal Nature. The team that published the paper was using a synthetic version of ibogaine, the active psychedelic substance found in an African shrub, and showing promising results.
As more people turn to psychedelic therapy, and actively search out retreats offering them, two major treatments keep coming up: Iboga, commonly referred to as ibogaine, and ayahuasca.
Both are traditional plant-based medicines with a deep history behind them. Both of them have psychedelic properties, and both of them are touted by users as life-changing.
There are some vital differences between them, though, so it’s important to make an informed choice between them.
