A global conference on ibogaine


A global conference on ibogaine

6 September 2016

This movie features the Global Ibogaine Conference that was held in Mexico in March, filmed by a member of Drugreporter's new global video network and an alumni of our video advocacy training, Brun Balanced and his peers, Karina Muscarina and Gabriel Amezcua.

The Global Ibogaine Conference has emerged as one of the most important events in the world for discussing ibogaine therapy, the overall climate of drug policy, its relationship with plant-based medicines - as well as the sustainability and traditional use of this African plant with psychedelic and medicinal properties, tabernanthe iboga, which has shown amazing beneficial effects, as yet unknown in other plants or substances.

Organised by the Global Ibogaine Therapy Alliance (GITA), this year's conference was held in the magical colonial village of Tepoztlan, Mexico, between March 14-16th, and brought together more than 500 people from around the world. This mini-documentary allows us to appreciate the reasons why this conference marks a historic moment in the research of tabernanthe iboga. Never before has an ibogaine conference attracted so many people, and generated such a multidisciplinary and diverse atmosphere in terms of the profiles of speakers and contributors.
