Rape’ and Sananga importation

Recommended Posts

I’ve been searching and searching for information about the legalities of importing rape’ and sananga to Australia. Can anyone enlighten me? Is it illegal?

 

I saw some people discussing importation duties associated with rape’. Does the duty apply to any amount? 
 

Any information would be greatly appreciated!

You betcha duty is applied to any weight of tobacco products on detection. GST gets factored as well. 

 

If applied on detection and cleared you'll get a notice to pay before they release it. Sometimes they would get through unmolested ..... 

 

Previously you could import up to 1.5kg chewing tobacco or snuff for oral use without a permit to import. It is to be correctly declared, otherwise destroyed on detection.

 

Check border force for the current amount of baccy products allowable to be mailed without import permit for any changes.  

 

That's without any perceived quarantine issues,issues with packaging, overethusiatic border force monkey....

Cheers, thanks for that waterboy. I assumed there would be duties on any amount. I’ll check the up to date info for import permit amounts.

 

Do you know anything about sananga? Whether it’s ok to mail to AUS? I can’t find any mention of it anywhere

Contains ibogaine as an active, there are scheduling issues("controlled"). S4 I think, I'm too tired to check ATM, could have changed. (the poisons standard - SUSMP handy document although must check for current revisions) 

 

Technically I'd say it's a no, but there are folks claiming to sell it here that may have been imported regardless or counterfeit. The first more likely,be cautious of the second. 

 

Edit - another beaker brighter than me may Chime in on  this

So I just went down the rabbit hole of reading the poisons standard, and you’re right, ibogaine is schedule 4.

 

From my understanding, sananga is not made from tabernathe iboga, but from tabernaemontana undulata. Same family, but different genus. It looks like they share a bunch of alkaloids, but I can’t find a definitive answer about ibogaine being an active in sananga. I wonder if it would fall into a grey area because of this?

Hi,I'm of the understanding sananga has a relatively short shelf life.  Say 6 months, I imagine it might be difficult to know what's fresh, how much to buy, ect when importing.

Peace

I did find a place in the UK that sends it sealed so that it doesn’t need to be refrigerated until it’s been opened. In terms of general shelf life though, you may be right. I guess there’s no way of knowing how long they’ve had it before sending
