History[ edit ] The Calabar bean[ edit ] The Efik people , living in Cross River State and the Ibibio people in Akwa Ibom State , in what is now the south-east of Nigeria , were the first to come in contact with physostigmine, the active ingredient in the Calabar bean. Individuals accused of witchcraft would drink the white, milky extract of the bean, made by crushing the bean in a mortar and soaking the remains in water. If the accused died, it was considered proof of their use of witchcraft. If they lived, usually due to vomiting up the poison, then they were declared innocent and sent free.
