Ibogaine is a natural drug which has psychedelic and dissociative properties. Ibogaine is illegal in the United States, but available in many other countries.

Legality and Availability[edit]

Ibogaine is a schedule I controlled substance in the United States, and is therefore illegal to possess or use.[1]

The drug is unregulated and unscheduled in Canada and the United Kingdom. It is also legal in Mexico.[2]

In Australia and New Zealand, ibogaine is available by prescription only.

Ibogaine clinics[edit]

Canada, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, South Africa, and Costa Rica have gray-area ibogaine clinics.[3][4][5]


Ibogaine is an experimental treatment for opioid addiction, where it appears to have positive effects on addiction as well as preventing opioid withdrawal. Ibogaine also synergizes with opioids, and may reduce tolerance.[6]

Ibogaine also may have therapeutic effects on addiction to alcohol, methamphetamine, and nicotine.
