I don't know too much about this but I've read BPC 157 has healing properties in the brain. It might be something to look into.
I read a couple arguments for cognitive sharpness because of 157, here's a quote about it helping with depression!!

.

By stabilizing the production of certain hormones like serotonin, BPC 157 may promote mental health by improving depression-type symptoms. Research published in the Journal of Physiology – Paris found BPC 157 to have comparable effects to antidepressants, with no side effects.[1

Yeah, I watched a documentary where they followed some people to these retreats. One of them had an awful reaction and had to go to the hospital. She said it really messed her up.

I guess, like anything, it could affect people differently.

For example, I always have friends talk about how much marijuana reduces their anxiety and stress and makes life more manageable. For me, it sends me into the worst panic attacks and depersonalization you could ever imagine. I won’t go anywhere near it. 2 of the worst experiences of my life on it. For others, though, it seems to do the opposite. (Even at lower doses it increases my anxiety and heart rate, at higher doses it’s a living nightmare)
you should try making tea from cannabis flowers… it’s amazing and doesn’t give you that panic attack feeling… very mellow/calming/relaxing … some low potency THC/CBD 2-1 flowers are the best for tea

I will look into that, but I’m so hesitant to try anything involving THC nowadays. I actually enjoyed it for anxiety when I’d mix a little bit of THC with a good amount of CBD, but i found it too easy to overdo it and too hard to find the sweet spot. CBD alone did nothing for me, THC was horrific, and the blend of the two was unpredictable for me (then again, I was mixing it myself from stuff I’d buy at the local dispensary, so it wasn’t “pre-made”)

I’m also hesitant when it comes to cannabis due to the stuff I’ve read about it’s impact on test levels, which is something I’ve been trying to work on, naturally, as of late.

I’d buy this pre workout from one stop nutrition back in 06, it was their version of no explode.
It’d also blow the top off your shaker, but damn, the pumps, energy and overall feeling on it were great. Tasted good too.
That pre workout has left me chasing the dragon so to speak with pre workouts.

i also really liked the og dark matter from mhp for post workout. That stuff would pack on the size. Turned your poop blue/purple too 😂😂😂

Fixed bro.
I’m assuming you had a bad experience with that company. In 13 years the only bad experience I had was their free shakers cups were leaky and no I’m not on their payroll nor do I get free products or discounts.

True Nutrition is a fine company.

Can definitely relate to the N.O. xplode nostalgia. First supplement I remember taking when I first started lifting in my twenties. Still associate the smell of orange N.O. Xplode with gains. That tingly feeling in your nose when it kicked in.

Then the old T-Bomb II pills, which I think made my hair start to thin at 24. And then Superdrol and all it’s sides. But, brother, did that stuff work. Oh, and 6-oxo. Crazy what you could buy OTC back then.

Good early 2000’s memories.

Superdrol was amazing. I was very fortunate in that I never had any noticeable sides when running it. I never tried 6-oxo. What was your experience using it like?

As I recall it was very androgenic. Increased aggression and libido. Dried you out. I think it was supposed to be used as PCT, but I just took some by itself. I kind of was just trying anything I heard good things about back then

It should increase DHT, so your description fits well. You can still get transdermal 6-OXO from Apex Alchemy. Arimahex is what the product is called.

You may be smoking TOO much and or smoking the wrong strain. Marijuana relaxes me but too much and im on the edge of a panic attack

For over 20 years I have taken glutamine pre workout and for ME it makes a huge difference in post workout soreness but many gurus, coaches, etc think it’s a waste of money.

It’s good for the gut health, and immune system after hard training, so probably a good investment anyway. It’s so beneficial for helping my acid reflux.

1-AD That used to be sold OTC at GNC like candy is up there for me. There’s a reason Mark McGuire got so big lol, but it worked

OG craze Pre-workout (loved berry lemonade) either solo or stacked with Hemavol for greater pumps.

Most recent standout was thermal spark I had leftover and never used from a promo, either solo or stacked with 0.5-0.75 scoop of excelsior. Flashbacks of riding that OG Craze dragon and insane workouts and results for PR (if stacked) or cutting (thermal spark solo). Feels like an old ECA Stack…..

Also @BBiceps

I posted a few days back that I thought your blood pressure couldn't be over 130 over 85 maybe I mixed it up and it was your resting heart rate can't be over 130 that would make perfect sense and line up with what you said

Original Jungle Warefare, with superdrol or whatever it is. I was so strong on that stuff.
OG sizeon, not sure how or why this worked so well but it did.

OG Jack3d I was basically a non responder and felt nothing at all from it, wish I got to know those feels.

Dandelion Root and Creatine: Creatine boosts cognitive function while the Dandelion Root seems to help flush out some excess water. They theoretically counteract each other but I love the combo

9g citrulline malate does wonders for me preventing excessive soreness and getting a few extra reps. I'm one of those who just never stops getting stupid sore from identical workouts that may not even hit failure. It's pretty annoying but citmal makes me "normal".

Other than creatine, I've only had luck with fat burners. Syntrax's original Adipo-kinetix. I believe it had usnic acid in it. I lost like 25lbs over 6 weeks. And AST Research's original Dymetadrine Xtreme and Twinlab's original Ripped Fuel. Both had the ECA stack in it. The good ol' days.
I still get Original TwinLab Nor Andro Ripped Fuel 60ct with Ephedra
