Researchers say they have developed a non-hallucinogenic form of Ibogaine to treats stress

Merry Jane report

Tabernanthalog, a synthetic version of plant-derived ibogaine, can regrow neural connections in the brain in the same way that psilocybin does.

Researchers have developed a new experimental compound that may be able to provide the stress-relieving properties of ibogaine without the toxic or hallucinogenic side effects.

Ibogaine is a psychedelic alkaloid that naturally grows in a variety of plants native to West Central Africa in a tiny country called Gabon. Local tribes have been using Iboga for medicinal and spiritual purposes for centuries, but in recent years, a growing number of Westerners have discovered the healing potential of this powerful psychedelic. Most notably, ibogaine has shown incredible promise at helping people break long-term addictions to heroin, alcohol, or other drugs.

Much like ayahuasca or peyote, ibogaine is usually consumed at clinics or retreats under the supervision of counselors or therapists. In a controlled setting, ibogaine users often find that they can confront their deepest fears, anxieties, and traumas, helping them overcome addictive behaviors. Unfortunately, this compound can cause heart arrhythmias, which can be deadly to people with underlying heart conditions.
