    If so what are your favs?

    I've been taking phenibut for a while. Tried some racipams but didn't notice anything.

    Just ordered some adrafinil to help with night shifts

    I want to try some racetams or phenibut.
    How did you feel on phenibut?
    What brand did you take?

    I wonder whether the movie Limitless spawned this snake oil business?

    Just recently started researching about it and different kinds, ordered about a week ago Onnit's Alpha Brain due to its hype and Joe Rogan's reviews. Meeh idk whether it does much but what I noticed my head is way clearer on it. Maybe any offers to boost my focus and memory while studying? Or in general, something which would make me feel better I don't hope too much tho.

    And yes I know it's fucking overpriced.

    Acetyl-l-carnitine
    Aniracetam
    Alpha-gpc

    Basic stack that I take with caffeine. It’s not really stimulating but the focus and creativity is legit. I do mma so it works really well for me.

    I bought some oxiracetam for energy so I’ll see how that goes.

    lions mane, sublithiamine, ashwaganda, fish oil, uridine, a bit of noopept

    there's some legit ones out there but you gotta play around with them and figure out what works for you.

    I lean towards the more naturally sourced ones as opposed to the more "drug" types.

    its overpriced, generally you gotta take like a legit 3-4 cap dose to legit feel It.

    definitely does work though, all the Individual ingredients are fairly well studied / documented.

    better to just make your own stack though.

    I might consider making my own stack, but I lack knowledge how, what and from where to order. But if it's considerably cheaper or better I'm willing to learn and research.

    And I haven't tried taking more than 2 pills a day might try taking 3 or 4 in some studying session.
    Btw, does it bring benefits as a supplement in long terms on daily basis? Or it's just like whenever I need to/feeling like taking it.

    I recently purchased a supplement called "focus" forget exactly what's in it but appearently it's the entry level all in one nootropic and it's actually not that bad.

    Well that's never stopped a supplement lemming from anything. Man up here and throw caution to the wind, and just go for it!

    Anyone tried micro dosing psilocybin for martial arts? I heard Rogan talking about it and my buddy is currently trying it out.

    Ooh shit just read it's sedative, I guess most of us look for something else than sedative and anti-anxiety nootropic. But for me as a mild junkie it caught eye, have you tried it? How sedative is it?

    EDIT: Ok it does support cognitive functions as well if not abused.

    i was interested in all this stuff a year or so ago when I first heard about it and from JRE talking about ProVigil.

    So let me ask:

    1) where can I buy

    2) which ones should I buy (ones that actually work etc.)
