The bark and seeds of the Voacanga tree are used in Africa as a poison, stimulant, aphrodisiac, and ceremonial psychedelic. A number of the compounds present in the bark are prized for their pharmacological value. This is what makes the plant an alternative to the popular drug addiction treatment tool known as Iboga root. Bouncing Bear was selling it prior to an illegal raid on their buisness in 2011. Now it's on Amazon, or you can get the seeds of Iboga at Mr B'z.

This reminds me of the golden ration, being another innate synchornicity that exist within reality.
Voacanga Africana contains a constituent known as "voacangine". The fact that we know about voacangine and other plant constituents wouldn't be possible without scientific study.
