Beginners Guide to Phenibut

Controlling Anxiety

Phenibut is one of the best ways to put yourself in a confident and focused state of mind. While having the overall improved sense of well being is great, knowing I have a tool by my side to help truly combat anxiety when needed it is definitely comforting.

Before we get into this, if you are simply just looking for the best phenibut - check out HappyHippoHerbals. I will explain why I recommend them in my guide and how phenibut (like kratom) has made a positive impact in my life.

What Is Phenibut?

In short, phenibut is a nutritional supplement which greatly reduces anxiety, nervousness, increases sociability, and more...

Discovered by the Soviet Union in the 1960's, phenibut is a GABA agonist that crosses the blood brain barrier. Unlike other GABA agonists (alcohol and benzodiazepines), phenibut primarily binds to the GABA-B receptor (instead of GABA-A).  This results in somewhat similar effects, except it increases motivation while maintaining a clear and sober mind.

What Are The Effects Like?

Phenibut has a unique effect. If you compare it to kratom, it's not quite as pronounced and almost has a 'background' type effect.  Any tension or anxiety decreases and you're left with an improved mood and a great sense of well being. Listed below are some of the different effects/uses:

- Improves Mood

- Reduces Tension

- Helps Confidence

- Reduces Anxiety & Nervousness

- Enhances How Music Sounds

- Boosts Libido

- Calming

How To Take Phenibut

1. Take Between 500mg To 2 Grams
    Personally 2g works for me, but the actual recommended dose is 500mg which is good to at least start with.

2. Take In The Morning With A Stimulant
    Drink it mixed with water or juice. Afterwards, have a cup coffee or any caffeine.

3. Wait A Minimum Of An Hour Before Eating
    It may take up to 5 hours to start working, but should last most of the day depending on the dosage.

Are There Any Downsides Or Side Effects?

Although there is a real potential for addiction and dependency, after several years experience I did not find the addiction risk to be any more than that of alcohol.  It’s something I have use for, but feel no cravings or need at all to ever take it more than 1 to 2 times per week.

As for dependence, if you abuse phenibut by taking it daily with continual large doses, you will become dependent on it and experience some withdrawals. Use it properly, and phenibut can be a very useful tool in your life to help you excel over common obstacles like anxiety & fear.

While some claim they can 'responsibly' take 3-4x/week, it's best to play on the safe side and keep it to once or twice per week (or on occasion).

My Recommended Vendor

Just like kratom, it's pure with no fillers. Finding quality phenibut isn't that rare to be honest (at least not when compared to kratom), but some are still better than others. The good thing it's fairly inexpensive (around a dollar each time you take it) so a small amount usually lasts months.

Unlike kratom, phenibut has just one type.  There's no fast or slow variations, all phenibut out there should do the same thing. If you're one who would prefer to avoid the somewhat sour powder, they have them in capsules too.

That's it!

That's all you need to know for now to start taking advantage of what phenibut has to offer. Although it may not be everyone, many find it improves their quality of life overall or that it's at least something enjoyable to use once in awhile.
