Gabon Takes First Step Toward Legal Export of Sustainable Iboga

Iboga has become an increasingly popular treatment for addiction and other ailments, particularly among those with opioid dependency. Unfortunately, almost all iboga bought in the West today is harvested illegally from Gabon, making most ibogaine clinics and companies complicit in breaking Gabonese law and international treaties, advocates say.

 

An international organization, Blessings of the Forest, has completed the first of two phases necessary to bring the medicinal plant iboga to the West legally for the first time under the Nagoya Protocol, an international treaty which went into effect in 2014.

 

As part of the proposed agreement, a percentage of iboga clinic revenues will be paid to the villages that have used iboga for ceremonial and medicinal purposes for countless generations. "
