I am happy to have Jeremy Weate, board member of Universal Ibogaine, as my guest on the show. He spent 15 years working as a consultant on natural resource governance, providing advice to governments, companies and civil society organisations in over 20 countries. Jeremy also has a decade-long interest in the medicalization of ibogaine in a holistic treatment setting. He visited Gabon in 2016 and was initiated into Bwiti. In 2018, Jeremy helped set up Tabula Rasa Retreat in Portugal, now one of the leading ibogaine treatment facilities in the world. He has organized ibogaine conferences in Vienna, Porto and London. He has a PhD in European philosophy from the University of Warwick, UK. Jeremy and I talk about the face and rules of modern addiction, the coming importance of Ibogaine and why you can’t keep a good molecule down, which is a british, understated way to say: Ibogaine will become a mayor player in the new word of psychedelics treatments. He is now a board member of "Universal Ibogaine" (https://www.ibogaineinc.com/) a Vancouver based company which aims to build a global network of holistic ibogaine-assisted addiction treatment clinics, operating under the brand Clear Sky Recovery, utilizing a proprietary Ibogaine assisted psychotherapy treatment protocol. The treatment protocol has successfully disrupted opioid addiction for over 3,500 people and delivers up to 95% successful detox.
