Now that Powder City has closed up shop for good, everybody is in a scramble to find the next best place to buy high quality nootropics. Powder City was the long standing giant in the industry. Their closing certainly left a giant black hole in the industry.
Compound – Adrafinil
Dosage – 600 – 1200mg
Used as – A wakefulness agent
I turn to nootropics for specific uses and cases. I do not simply take nootropics for just any old reason. Every dose has a certain level of intention behind it. For instance, I turn to Piracetam, L-Tyrosine, and Coffee for focus.
I regret to bring forth the saddest news ever dropped in the nootropics community. One of the largest suppliers of nootropics has shut its doors and closed down for business.
Yes it’s true. Powder City is no longer.
While there is still much to be speculated as to why, a number of theories have come to the surface. For one, Powder City was sued in a recent lawsuit involving the death of a 28 year old man in Harris County, Texas.
Reports say on July 28, 2017, Colby Patrick Brennan overdosed on the popular nootropics Tianeptine. Tianeptine is well known in the nootropics scene as a powerful anti depressant when taken in the right doses.
A case was made against Powder City LLC for not providing adequate labeling and warnings as to the nootropics potential danger.
Death is always tragic and I see this as a warning to everybody to properly research anything they take and to do their research.
Other theories are that Powder City’s payment processor refused to process credit cards for the company. This would throw the entire operation into halt mode. I have seen many nootropics companies come and go for this very reason. It’s a giant risk that most processors do not want to take on.
Is the end of nootropics? Only time will tell.
Luckily, there are still vendors such as Peak Nootropics who seem to be doing quite well. Who knows how long they will be open in light of the largest nootropics vendor vanishing overnight.
Stock up while you can folks because who knows how long this train ride will roll for!
Are you about to drop some serious cash on nootropics? Of course, you’d like to know if nootropics are legit before you do so. Who wants to waste their hard earned cash on snake oil?
I had my concerns when I first started using nootropics. In fact, I scoured the internet looking for even a SCRAP of evidence to suggest that nootropics were pure marketing. Indeed, I found many people who were very jaded about nootropics. They were crying from the high heavens and eager to tell the world the “truth” about the “scam.”
I certainly gravitated towards these types of conversations. I didn’t want to be fooled by someone who was selling bunk product. However, I continued to do my research as objectively as possible, without getting sucked into the opinions of a handful of whiners.
I continued to dig deeper into the subject of nootropics to figure out if they were indeed, As the cowboys used to say…
All hat and no cattle.
After experimentation with a few common nootropics I have come to my own conclusion…
Nootropics are legit.
Sure, certain nootropics have had little effect on me mentally. However, some nootropics like Piracetam and Phenibut have been nothing short of game changers for my life. I went from experiencing debilitating brain fog to firing on all cylinders. I went from stumbling around with words to speaking fluid rivers of coherent thoughts with anyone I met. With Phenibut I gave the most epic speech of my life at my best friends funeral. Without nootropics there would be very little acceleration in my life.
Without nootropics there is only brain fog and darkness. With them I am born into a brand new world where everything is clear and effortless.
Much of the positive things you hear about nootroics are true.
For example, L-Theanine really DOES synergize perfectly with caffeine, leveling out all the negative effects and amping up the positives. L-Theanine by itself is extremely calming. The studies will even tell you that.
I’ve also had great experiences with Aniracetam, Pramiracetam, and Phenylpiracetam – the latter nootropic turning me into the incredible hulk on the physical energy level. There’s a reason it’s banned by most competitive sports (it actually works.)
At this point it’s not a matter of asking the question “do nootropics work.”
Now, it’s more a matter of experimenting with what is out there and finding the nootropics that work well for you and your situation. It’s a question of finding the right nootropics stack to allow yourself to break through to the next cognitive level.
Whether you want to crush your anxiety or crush an exam, nootropics have a lot to offer you.
Don’t be afraid to grab some powder or capsules and start dosing. You might find yourself tumbling down a very interesting rabbit hole indeed…
Oxiracetam was one of the last nootropics I experimented with. I had been hearing mixed reviews about this particular racetam and had some reservation about experimenting.
Only after I tried all the other racetams did I give Oxiracetam a shot. Out of all the racetams I would say it’s the most unique. It’s effects are immediate and come in powerful bursts of mental energy. This was a surprise as I wasn’t expecting any kind of effect all.
While other racetams like Piracetam compound over time, Oxiractetam seemed to go into effect immediately.
While other racetams also have significant effects on memory, I didn’t notice any of these same qualities in Oxiracetam.
Why use Oxiracetam?
This nootropic is great for short bursts of mental energy. Stacked with a cup of strong coffee, this is a powerful nootropic for smashing through work and getting stuff down.
Out of all the racetams, this particular variety was the only kind to get me off my ass and clean my room. In fact, I was happy to do so and even had leftover mental reserves to make a few calls I had been putting off.
For me, making calls and sending emails are the last things I want to do with my time. Talking to people on the phone is mentally draining and after a few long phone sessions, I’m nearly drained of life completely.
This racetam allowed me to power through the tedious tasks that I usually dread with ease.
Stacks well with….
Caffeine. Like I mentioned, caffeine and Oxiracetam seem to go hand in hand. Both are stimulatory in nature and provide the mental groundwork required to hammer through your projects and get stuff done.
Choline is another great supplement to stack with this nootropic. In fact, all racetam types benefit from a quality choline source. These racetams ramp up the amount of Acetycholine usage in the brain – the neurotransmitter responsible for nootropic effects. Choline is the primary precursor to making Acetycholine so give your brain what it needs.
Where to buy Oxiracetam
Peak Nootropics has stocked Oxiracetam for a long time and consistently provides the best quality year after year. While other nootropic companies come and go, Peak Nootropics has stood strong in a shaky market.
