Phenibut was synthesized by professor V. Perekalin in 1959. Nootropic supplement was quickly recognised as a very promising chemical compound, as it had both psychostimulating and anxiety reducing effects.
The effects of Phenibut simultaneously combine mild-to-moderate sedation with mild-to-moderate stimulation, allowing one to feel physically relaxed and mentally focused at the same time. This increases sociability, lowering stress and inhibition levels, without impairing judgment.
This anxiolytic gives some users the sensation of mild euphoria, tantamount to a mild “high”. As such, it can be abused if not used correct. Yet, the euphoric phenibut high is not intense, and taking more of it doesn’t intensify the high.

Phenibut is also popular among athletes and bodybuilders, as it increases resting and post-exercise growth-hormone secretion.
Caution: Large quantities might cause tolerance and withdrawal symptoms. It has different effects when taken in high doses.
