Also known as Beta-phenyl-gamma-aminobutyric acid. Has anyone ever heard of this stuff? I've picked up a few bottles over the years and it's quite an interesting substance. It's derived from from the neurotransmitter GABA, but is also able to cross the blood brain barrier. It's known as a nootropic for its ability to improve neurological function. I'm not sure how many of you are aware of the function of GABA, so here is a run down: It acts on inhibitory synapses in the brain, and provides an effect VERY similar to alcohol, GHB and so on. GABA plays a roll in anxiety, and insomnia; which is the purpose for which I've used it for. Now I've never used any benzos of any kind before, but the anti-anxiolotic effect phenibut had on me was absoltely phenominal. Higher dosages make you feel like you're drunk, but without drinking. It provides the same confidence, slurring, blurry vision, etc that alochol provides. I typically used small dosages of 400mg, which was not enough to achieve this drunken state, because I was specifically using it as a treatment for anxiety. Anyways, I was just curious if anyone has heard of or tried this substance before? It is not currently illicit and can be purchased legally in many places.
