<<  One other product, offered by "... of the jungle" before it split into
 BPC (P.O. Box 1368, Sebastopol, CA 95473, USA) and Allies (P.O. Box 2422,
 Sebastopol, CA 95473, USA), was an extract of Tabernaemontana divaricata
 (Tagar). This contains a variety of alkaloids similar to ibogaine, but no
 significant ibogaine itself, and there were a few people considering trying
 it at one point. If anyone has actually tried this extract, I would
 certainly like to know their experiences. However, I am not recommending
 that anyone actually try this extract at this time, because I haven't
 researched its pharmacological properties. The Allies company, which sells
 plants and seeds, now sells a live Tagar plant for $15.

I drank 6 Ounces  of the TAGAR extract with no results, and I am growing two
of the plants.  I talked to the guy that prepared the extract.  Apparently, he
boils the leaves of the plant, and soaks them in water for a week or two, and
calls it extract.  Whatever the case, it was week!
