Posted by:


(YourDigitalWall Editorial):- Toronto, Jan 13, 2021 ( – Microdose Psychedelic Insights, along with Universal Ibogaine, and The Conscious Fund, present The Ibogaine Conference: A Molecular Masterclass, a two-day virtual conference. The online conference will take place on 19th – 20th February 2021.  

The conference will bring together over 50 of the leading researchers in the therapeutic use of Ibogaine, a powerful psychedelic plant medicine showing immense potential in the treatment of addiction. The conference aims to raise awareness of the beneficial properties of this unique plant-derived medicine and its analogs, to stimulate further research interest, chart the pathway towards medicalization, support advocacy in different contexts as well as discuss the use of ibogaine as a therapy for addiction, neurodegenerative disorders, as well as a catalyst for spiritual development. 

CEO of Universal Ibogaine, Jeremy Weate, writes, “Plant-derived psychedelic medicines are urgently required to address a huge unmet need in mental health across the globe which is sadly being greatly exacerbated by Covid-19. While the focus has been on the classic psychedelics, it’s time to turn our attention to this unique multi-target molecule and work collectively to ensure it is widely available this decade as a key tool to combat addiction.  This conference promises to be a landmark event along the way.”

The organizers have invited a wide range of speakers and guests from a variety of backgrounds in order to stimulate a rich dialogue about ibogaine, develop ways of integrating it into our culture and explore how they can be incorporated into a medically approved context.
