Semax by RUPharma
I've been researching this Russian Nootropic and with Semax, more than any other Nootropic ingredient I've researched, I kept coming across Biohackers saying that it's the best smart drug they've ever tried.
So I was quiet excited when the post office notified me that my package of Nootropics had arrived from Moscow.
Opening the package, I'll admit I was a bit disappointed at the diminutive size of the little bottle of .01% Semax.
I tried it that afternoon without any other Nootropics. I took a drop in each nostril, it has almost no scent or distinct property whatsoever - a pretty painless Nootropic to take. The effect was not underwhelming, although I was a bit sleep deprived from a sexual marathon the night before. I got tired in the mid afternoon had an unremarkable meditation session. It did not help much with the sleep deprivation. I stored it in the refrigerator.
I upped the dosage to a drop in each nostril in the morning and the same in the afternoon; so 4 drops total. This time there was more of a noticeable and almost immediate effect upon doing the afternoon dose. It has a subtle cognitive enhancing effect, I'm feeling a bit more focused although not really energetic. My hearing is a bit more sensitive. I did meditation after the second dose, it was a pretty good meditation session.
Again I did 2 drops in the morning and 2 in the afternoon. I got really irate after taking the second dosage because my roommate was smoking in the house, although I'm sure if the Semax had anything to do with that. It may have just been because my roommate. I did some meditation which assuaged the irritation. A few hour later I met some friends for dinner and had a nice Czech beer, there was no noticeable interaction with the Semax.
I did 2 drops in the morning and 4 in the afternoon. I noticed my focus was particularly myopic as I worked for hours on end, although my breath counting meditation revealed that I wasn't more focused than I usually am using Racetams or Modafinil. Later that evening I want out with my girlfriend and had a glass of wine and a beer, I noticed that I felt that I had drank a bit more than that though. I felt a bit drunk and I don't get drunk off two drinks. Better to not drink anymore with Semax in my system.
I did 4 drops in the morning and two in the afternoon. I had a pretty productive sales call.
I did two drops in the morning and two in the afternoon but I combined it with Vinotropil from RUPharma which is a combination of Piracetam and Vinpocetine of which I did two capsules in the morning and one in the afternoon. While doing meditation on this stack in the afternoon I was a bit overcome with the pharmacologically induced narcissistic optimism that I I've talked about before; a sensation that I imagine being somewhat akin to a Jedi dabbling with the dark side of the force; a feeling of being able to tap into a vast reserve of internal power. A feeling a Titanic confidence. A feeling of being indomitable.
Grandiose pros, I know, more accurately I felt it was a state of relaxed arousal.
I was a bit sleep deprived from the romp the night before, this stack helped me to a stay focused and productive but I would not say that I totally assuaged my sleep deprivation the way that Tyrosine or Modafinil do.
As I've talked about elsewhere international shipping is a tremendous pain in the ass for Biohackers outside of the US. I'm here in a European country that is notoriously difficult to get Nootropics shipped into. I expected to have to do deal with a bunch of shipping BS; forms, VAT fees and waiting around. Yet I was pleasantly surprised when the package arrived in about a week and I was able to pick it up with no hassle from the post office. So I recommend RUPharma highly to Biohackers in Europe who are frustrated with dealing with international shipping.
I call it the caviar of Russian Nootropics because it's really quiet pricey. This little bottle which is about a week's supply is 22 euros. However, like I said in my research I kept coming across quiet experienced Biohackers who used it long term saying that it's the best Nootropic they've used so it maybe worth it. It has an interesting BDNF mechanism that works on long term memory in supposedly quiet transformative ways so it maybe some people's real personal NZT-48.
It's an interesting Nootropic, I wish I had more of it!
