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.
However, just because the biggest supplier of nootropics has crumbled does not mean there aren’t other alternatives to buy nootropics. In this post we’re going to explore the other options available to you.
1.) Peak Nootropics
If you follow me on my YouTube channel you know I am a big supporter of Peak Nootropics. These guys have been around since the dawn of the industry and have consistently delivered quality product. I’ve been buying their Piracetam for years and the consistency has stayed the same.
As a big customer I’ve even been in contact with the people behind the company. All of them are very helpful in providing you the best nootropics available. Customer service is good and their sales representatives are very knowledgeable about their product. If you live in the U.S. they are centrally based out of Houston Texas so shipping times are generally quick and on time.

2.) Nootropics Depot
I’ve recently discovered this vendor after searching for an adequate Powder City Replacement. While Peak Nootropics carries a lot of my favorite staple nootropics, they don’t stock many of the more exotic varieties.
Nootropics Depot has a substantial collection of both powders and capsules. All the basic nootropics are available including a number of interesting adaptogens, mushrooms (not THOSE ones…hehe) and drink mixes.
One of my favorite products is their nootropics sample pack which has generous doses of Piracetam, Aniracetam, Oxiracetam, and Noopept. These are great nootropics I recommend to beginners and perhaps the most effective. If you order this sample pack be sure not to take all of them at once!
Nootropics Depot has very good prices and great reviews. Read my full review of Nootropics Depot Here.
Onnit is perhaps the most corporate and “polished” nootropics vendor on this list. Their products are over priced and I’ve made some accusations in some of my videos about a few questionable ingredients. However, their nootropics stacks are very effective and, for the most part, contain synergistic ingredients.
If you want a stack that just works, their flagship product Alpha Brain is very effective. Like I said, this stuff is expensive but if you don’t want to fool around with raw powders or try to figure out your own personal stack, Onnit has many stacks available.
They seem to have done their homework and I especially find Alpha Brain extremely effective at enhancing cognitive functioning and improving mental focus. Give these guys a shot if you want something that works from day one and you don’t mind shelling out a little extra dough.
4.) Lift Mode
My experience with Lift Mode is limited to their Phenibut. They carry both forms (HCL and FAA) and prices are decent. Aside from the Phenibut they have little to offer in the way of real nootropics. They do however stock L-Theanine and Caffeine which is one of my favorite stacks. These compounds are easily obtained from any nootropics vendor though.
Go to these guys for Phenibut unless you’re ordering other nootropics too, and in that case I recommend Peak Nootropics or Nootropics Depot.
Ceretropic from what I can tell is a smaller specialized branch of Nootropics Depot. They stock a variety of nasal sprays which makes them unique. While it may sound crazy, this is a great delivery method for some nootropics.
They stock many nootropics and compounds I’ve never heard of and I’m curious to do more research into them. If you’re just starting out these types of nootropics might be a little too out there. However, if you’re a seasoned veteran of the basics like Piracetam feel free to give them a shot.
Ceretropic has received great reviews on Reddit and one of the owners is an atrive member of the community. It’s sometimes good to put a personality behind a brand, especially when it comes to the more exotic type compounds.
6.) Duck Dose Modafinil
This list would not be complete without including a place to find high quality Modafinil. Duck Dose is a vendor I’ve had a positive experience buying Modafinil with. They were kind enough to send me samples and I can attest to the quality. I recently wrote a review about their product and service you can read here.
It’s a sad day when one of the greatest suppliers of nootropics goes out of business but as you have seen, there are some good alternatives. How long will it be before these companies go under as well? Who knows. Perhaps these vendors will stand the test of time. As we’ve seen with Powder City though, even the giants can fall.
Enjoy these nootropics while you can and thanks for reading.
