The Cure For Physical Adiction.

I have many substances and neurosystems queued up to write about. This one, however, seemed particularly important to note. The substance is called ibogaine. It may have more than one mechanism of action. However, the most important one is KOR (Kappa Opioid Receptor) agonism. KOR is very different from the μ (Greek letter mu) opioid receptor which people get addicted to. From my current understanding, the KOR and μ (mu) receptors play a balancing act with eachother. I will write a page going into more detail later. For now, here is a documentary.

Ibogaine - Rite of Passage, A Cure for All Addictions


Legal Status

In the U.S.A., ibogaine is a schedule I (1) substance. However, cross the border either direction to find unregulated ibogaine. There are ibogaine clinics all over the world.

There is a "medical subculture" regarding Ibogaine, so it can be obtained illegal.

Alternatives

There is an alternative, but it doesn't have much going for it in the way of addiction. It is a clean KOR agonist called salvia. It does have good potential for treating depression and, perhaps, aid with sleep if not taken too close to bed time. On the plus side, it is legal in some states in the U.S. On the down side(for addiction curing) , it only lasts 3-15 minutes. One thing though, salvia extracts can be powerful, be careful and do your research. I will also be writing about salvia in detail at a later date.
