Sweet, I'll look into giving Huperzine-A a shot sometime soon.
The first time I felt that really weird phenibut "drunkenness" I thought I just hadn't taken enough, so I took another gram and ended up sleeping for 20 hours straight. I woke up at one point and managed to crawl halfway to the bathroom before falling asleep on the floor. Very powerful stuff.
I take it green tea has a less than optimal l-theanine/caffeine ratio?
Exactly. Black tea is actually better for the l-theanine/caffeine benefits because it's 20mg/14-61mg vs 5-46mg/14-61, where the ranges are highly dependent on the conditions in which the green tea were grown.
You normally want a 4:1 theanine:caffeine ratio, so 800mg of l-theanine for your standard 200mg caffeine pill.
My current regimen:
if I take phenibut I don't take the l-theanine+caffeine combo, because all that happens is that they cancel each other out.
2400mg piracetam 3x/day
400mg choline bitartrate 1x/day
400mg inositol 1x/day
800mg l-theanine with 200mg caffeine 3x/day
