"In my quest for illumination, I underwent a tribal initiation in Gabon, eating iboga, a bitter-tasting psychedelic root bark that induces a visionary state."

"Taub explains, "In the tribal use of ibogaine, the visionary aspect of iboga is revered as an integral part of the healing process -- this is especially ironic in light of the fact that Dr. Deborah Mash, a professor at the University of Miami and one of the top scientific experts on ibogaine, is working to develop noribogaine (12-Hydroxyibogamine), an ibogaine metabolite that does not induce visions.""
