Cameroon, Root Bark, Essence 1:25, 5 Ml from Cameroon (SKU 4208)
New extraction methods have allowed us to provide a new liquid that will replace our previous iboga tinctures. The essence's total soluble actives are about 1200 Mg per 10 ml. This will be comparable to around 1000mg of TA extract per 10 ml. It has been brought to a 1:25 ratio, resulting in a 48 mg per 10 ml extract (one drop will contain the rough equivalent of 0,20 mg of TA extract).
This unique extraction process aims at keeping all the necessary synergistic active components intact in their natural, but very concentrated form. This means it is not an extract aimed at only certain actives, like for example a Total Purified Alkaloid extract would be, but also all other actives are kept in the end product such as: flavonoids, antioxidants, beta-glucans etc (depending on the herb). No artificial solvents are used during the extraction process.
The essence is packed in high quality Miron glass 5 ml bottles with pipette. When applying the usage protocol we developed, this small bottle goes a long way. For more information about this subject, do not hesitate to contact us.
The legitimacy of sourcing and providing this plant is highly debated as of late. We have decided to provide this rare material in small quantities only, as long as our current stock lasts. We are investigating whether sourcing and providing Iboga is still ethical.
After harvesting these seeds from the fresh fruit in June 2018, they will remain viable for 6 months minimum, some will also grow after one year, but as time goes by the germination rate will slowly decrease. Do not store at fridge cool, iboga will die at temperatures below 8-10°C.
We found they germinated quickly here in the Dutch summer, and nearly all the seeds we tested were viable.
To germinate these semi dried seeds, the most important step is to soak them in water for 2 days to make sure the seedcoat becomes soft again. Then plant them about 1cm deep in soil, keep warm (above room temperature if possible) and keep moist for 4-6 weeks.
For the non-gardeners among us, these seeds containing the spirit of this powerful teacher plant are ideal as an amulet, or for placing on your altar.
Care and Cultivation of Tabernanthe iboga
Tabernanthe iboga likes a part shade position (50%) with rich soil and good drainage. Give regular applications of both liquid and solid fertiliser over summer. Likes a lot of root space, pot up regularly when you notice white roots coming out of the drainage holes. Keep Tabernanthe iboga plants in a warmer area over winter months, and also keep more dry as they tend to stop growing and can lose most of their leaves as well.
