What the TOP 1% Use to Move Mountains with Laser Focus

Comprehensive guide by Mike from  PHENIBUTHERO

A man and woman who use phenibut.

What is Phenibut?

Phenibut is a powder-like substance that is most common for improving focus, suppressing anxiety, boosting mood, and helping promote healthy sleep.

Phenibut functions by interacting with the body, but more interestingly, it almost acts the same way that alcohol works.

However, don't be mistaken - phenibut is vastly more beneficial than alcohol.

Here, we're going to teach you why you should take phenibut, what to expect, and how to use it.

Why Would I Want to Take Phenibut?

Phenibut is becoming extremely popular because of all the practical uses and applications it has in just about every lifestyle.

These uses are, but are not limited to:

Given these applications, why wouldn't you want to take phenibut?

Personally, I was introduced to Phenibut in high school.

With it, I aced the SAT exam, and fast-forward 5 years - I now have a Master's Degree from UCLA.

I then introduced phenibut to my younger brother, who used it to power through Stanford, getting both his Bachelor's and Master's degrees in just 4 years.

Talk about pushing the limits!

Now we both have 6-figure salaries in Los Angeles and San Francisco respectively - living the good life.

It's safe to say phenibut changed not only our careers, but our lives as well.

Phenibut Benefits

In general, phenibut effects are extremely positive and desired.

It's the main reason why it's so popular, especially in the nootropics (smart drug) community.

Phenibut is a compound that binds to the GABA-B receptors in the brain.

This mechanism is similar to alcohol which binds to the GABA-A receptors.

However, because they bind to different brain receptors, the results are vastly different.

Here are the effects that Phenibut causes (that alcohol doesn't).

  • Improved focus through a "Zen" like mental state.

  • Decrease in anxiety (Anxiolytic).

  • Feeling of Euphoria (Increased excitement / happiness)

  • Improved motor and thinking skills - the complete opposite of alcohol.

How much phenibut do I take?

Learning the proper phenibut dosage is a crucial, so let's get that out of the way.

The generally accepted amount for a single dosage is:

750 to 1500mg

The reason for the range is simply because the typical dosage varies with the user.

For example, if you weigh more, then your dosage may need to be increased accordingly.

If you're heavier you may need a larger dose. If you're smaller, you may need a smaller one.

Or if you personally want a better high, then you may also choose to increase the dosage slightly.

If you are targeting experiencing the phenibut high in general, this is definitely the dosage to use.

And for the most part, this is the dosage you will use for all the many practical applications of phenibut as well.

There are some special cases - for example, when using phenibut to improve sleep, only 100 to 300mg should be used.

But just remember 750 to 1500mg (or about 1g) and you'll be set for most cases.

Dosage for first time users

If it's your first time using phenibut, start with 750mg, perhaps even a bit lower.

Note that it is not uncommon for people to report not feeling anything at all at 750mg.

So if that's you, then definitely increase your dosage accordingly.

Again, for most people, a satisfying dosage will fall between 750 and 1500mg.

2 Golden Rules for Phenibut Dosage

As you can probably tell, the exact dosage you take is not set in stone.

Even if you know your "typical dosage", that doesn't mean you have to take that much every single time.

Having said that, here are two solid rules to always keep in mind for successful phenibut use:

  1. A typical dosage should be between 750 and 1500mg (varying from person to person).

  2. Do not consume more than 2000mg of phenibut in a 24-hour period.

If you read from other sites that going over 2000mg is doable, we recommend not listening to them.

And it's not that what they're saying is untrue.

But doing so is when the unpleasant side effects start to kick in.

In other words, you could start developing a phenibut tolerance, which leads to inevitable phenibut withdrawal.

Or in very rare cases (at very high dosages), an overdose.

Not fun.

And hence our recommendation to always stay within a reasonable dosage amount!

How long does Phenibut Last?

First of all, it takes 30 minutes for you to start feeling the effects of your phenibut dose.

After that, phenibut typically lasts for:

6 Hours

That's quite a lot of time compared to other smart drugs on the market - massive value for every dollar spent.

What does phenibut taste like?

Phenibut tends to have a bitter taste to it.

Imagine the texture of kool aid powder with a sour, citrus taste - that's exactly what it tastes like.

If you can't handle the bitter taste, you can always mix it with sweet juice to minimize the taste (check out the stir-and-drink method below).

How to take phenibut

Phenibut is a powder that can be ingested in various ways. Here are the three most popular methods:

The Toss-and-Wash Method

If you are working with phenibut powder directly, then this is the fastest method.

  1. Measure out the dose of phenibut onto a piece of paper or your credit card.

  2. Toss the dose into the back of your mouth (be careful not to choke on it).

  3. Take a sip of water and gulp it all down at once.

  4. Drink more water to wash any residual phenibut down.

The Stir-and-Drink Method

This is a slightly more popular method that takes some extra steps to help you avoid the bitter taste of phenibut.

  1. Measure out the dose of phenibut and pour into a glass of water or other liquid of choice.

  2. Stir the liquid until it phenibut is mixed completely, just like you would do with a powdered drink mix.

  3. Drink the drink in its entirety.

As should be obvious, by replacing water with something sweeter like fruit juice, you can minimize the taste.

Phenibut Capsules

This is the most popular method hands-down, as it is quite convenient compared to dealing with phenibut in its powder form directly.

Luckily for you, we have an extensive article on phenibut capsules.

Check it out!

Ultimately, the choice is up to you, as long as the proper dosage of phenibut makes it into your digestive tract.

How often can I take phenibut

To be honest, it totally depends on how large your dosages are!

Luckily we have plenty of tools and advice to help you out!

Check out our free phenibut dosage calculator!

If you want to know more precisely how your dosage amount should dictate how often to take phenibut, then check out our free dosage calculator.

Just enter your own personal dosage amount and our calculator will give you guidelines for how often to take phenibut.

It'll tell you how many days to wait between dosages, as well as how many dosages you should be taking per week.

Very useful indeed!

Rest days are your friend!

Even if our dosage calculator says that you can take phenibut daily, it is always a good idea to take a rest day at least once every few weeks.

Again, this all has to do with avoiding developing a tolerance towards phenibut.

So every day you don't take phenibut helps to reduce the chance of developing a tolerance.

Spread your dosages out evenly

If you only take phenibut a few times a week (especially if they are large dosages), then be sure to spread them out as evenly as possible.

For example, if you only take phenibut twice a week, ideally take the first dosage on Mondays and the second one on Thursdays or Fridays.

That's a great way to "buffer" and minimize your tolerence build-up even more.

Again, this really only applies if you are taking larger than recommended dosages (> 2000mg).

In which case you definitely should follow this guideline!

Overall, following all of the guidelines set here at Phenibut Hero should be more than enough to keep your risk of phenibut tolerance at a minimum.

If you're looking for a typical phenibut use-case, then check out our dosage page to see a fairly typical schedule for taking phenibut.

It covers both how it can be used while in school, as well as post-grad while working.

The great thing though is that phenibut can literally be used in any situation and for any lifestyle.

As long as you proactively monitor your dosages and adjust them accordingly when necessary. In other words:

Always be sure to listen to your body, and pull back if you start feeling a tolerance developing.

Is Phenibut Safe?

Short answer: Given it's used properly, yes - 100%.

The only reason it becomes unsafe is when you don't follow the 2 golden rules mentioned above.

And so again, because this is so important, we're going to repeat them here:

  1. A typical dosage should be between 750 and 1500mg (varying from person to person).

  2. Do not consume more than 2000mg of phenibut in a 24-hour period.

Keeping those guidelines in mind are all you need to make sure your phenibut experience is safe, and as a result enjoyable.

If it makes you feel any better, my brother and I have been using phenibut for years without any issues whatsoever.

As long as you follow the dosage guidelines, you will be in good shape!

Do not take with other drugs.

However, it is imperative NOT to mix Phenibut with either benzodiazepines or alcohol since these substances act in the very same way and potentiate the other's effects.

Never take phenibut with alcohol.

Just don't.
