Tabernanthe iboga or simply iboga is a rainforest shrub and atypical psychedelic that is native to western Central Africa. Its active chemical ‘Ibogaine’ is said by those who’ve used it to unlock a “ruthless inner voice of truth”. Likened to a voice of reason not unlike that of a stern father, this brutal but enlightening experience allows a deep level of healing to occur for those with trauma, PTSD and narcotic additions.
While not a typical psychedelic compound, the experience is said to decondition the mind in order to view life experiences from an unbiased point of view that can shatter addictions and negative behavior patterns by seeing the source of them with a new sense of clarity.
In this old edition of the Joe Rogan Experience Podcast, ONNIT CEO and philosopher Aubrey Marcus gives a detailed account of his experience with Ibogaine. Spiritual in nature and deeply moving if you are open to the story, Aubrey’s reflection explores the true nature of god, the universe and infinity.
