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:


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 100mg should be used.

But just remember 750mg and you'll be all set.

Weight Considerations

Keep in mind that if you are significantly overweight or underweight, you may need to adjust your dosage accordingly.

That means a slightly larger dose for those who are heavier.

And a slightly smaller dose for those who are lighter.

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

But again, for the majority of people, adjusting your dosage based on weight is not necessary.

The 2 Golden Rules to always follow

As you can probably tell, the exact dosage is not set in stone and there are a lot of difference scenarios.

But having said that, you need to make sure to follow these 2 rules:

  1. Do not consume more than 1000mg in a single dose.

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

For obvious reasons, taking any more could lead to overdose.

It could also lead to you developing a tolerance towards phenibut.

Basically, a tolerance lessens the overall benefits because your body gets used to the phenibut.

That means you'll be using more phenibut than before to get the same effects, essentially wasting money.

And similar to overdose, it often comes with an increase in adverse side effects.

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 taken by ingesting the powder. Here are 2 ways to do it:

The Toss-and-Wash Method

This is the easiest (and fastest) method to take phenibut.

  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 the 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.

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

Although it's possible to take phenibut daily, typically people limit their usage to 3 to 5 days a week.

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

Check out our dosage page to see a fairly typical schedule for 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.

Spread dosages out evenly

If you really want to avoid developing a tolerance and decide to only take it a few times a week, be sure to spread your doses out as evenly as possible.

For example, take it on Monday and the second one on Thursday or Friday.

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

Tolerance is definitely something to always be cautious about, but this is a good guideline to follow:

Taking phenibut 3 to 5 days on average leads to receiving the most overall benefit without significant risk of developing a tolerance.

Keep in mind the word "average" here.

If you'd like to take phenibut more than 5 times a week for a short while, feel free to do so.

Just 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. Do not consume more than 1000mg in a single dose.

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

Staying under those limits 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.

Start with a smaller dose for your very first time

One big piece of advice for first-time users is this:

Start out with a smaller dose and see how it goes before proceeding onto the typical (or higher) dosages.

Some individual's bodies can react differently, or even more intensely than others, so you rather play it safe, to begin with.

Once you see how your body reacts, you can adjust the dosage accordingly.

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.
