TEST TYPES #
Urine Testing
We are not aware of any simple drug tests that would show ibogaine usage. Ibogaine is not one of the SAMHSA-5 standardly tested for in the basic drug test, nor is it included in the extended drug tests. It is not chemically similar to any of the drugs tested for, so should not trigger the tests as another substance. It would be possible to detect it and its metabolites in blood or urine, but a lab would specifically have to decide to look for it and would probably require specialized assays not normally used by drug testing companies.

We are unaware of Ibogaine ever having been tested for (in urine or blood), most likely because of its extreme rarity.

CAUTION & DISCLAIMER #
Erowid's drug testing information is a summary of data gathered from site visitors, journal articles, websites, and other resources. Detection periods depend on amount and frequency of use, metabolic rate, body mass, age, overall health, drug tolerance, and urine pH of each individual. Many substances that are not tested for in basic or extended urinalysis tests CAN be tested for by a laboratory willing to go to the trouble, although that is uncommon.
