If you have done some basic research into Phenibut, you know that it comes in two forms. Phenibut HCL and FAA. You might be wondering whats the difference (if any). Well today we will give you the dirty details on both. And more importantly, we will lay out their key differences so you can choose which is better for you based on what you are trying to get out of your Phenibut experience.
If your curious about the difference between Phenibut HCL & Phenibut FAA, there’s a good chance you are considering trying out this crazy supplement.
But if this is your first time trying Phenibut, or you are a seasoned vet and are just looking to try something new, this article is for you. While on the surface, it may seem that there is little difference between these two compounds, there are several key differences.
Before we get into exactly how these two are different, lets ask the important question…
Why should you care.
The answer is simpler than it seems. People are looking for different experiences out of Phenibut. Not only that, but everyone might not have the time to carefully plan out a dosing schedule. If you are one of many who just wants to “set it and forget it” when it comes to your supplements, we will show you exactly where to go for here.
If you are looking for a customized experience tailored to your exact needs, you have a few things to think about before making your choice. And that is exactly what we are going to help you with today.
Luckily for you, since there are few suppliers to choose from, where to buy Phenibut shouldn’t be a challenge for you.
However, things get a little murky from here on out…
As you will see (or maybe you already know), there are two common types of Phenibut to buy.
While they both provide all the benefits that come with the supplement, there are a few key differences that you should be aware of before taking the plunge.
By the time you finish this article, you will have everything you need to make your decision.
When you see HCL this simply means that this is more acidic on the PH scale. This is due to the HCL ions the compound emits.
What this means for you is that Phenibut HCL will dissolve easily in liquids. So if you prefer to take Phenibut in the powder form, Phenibut HCL would be an excellent choice for you.
When placed in water or coffee, Phenibut HCL dissolves in seconds. If you have tried to take Phenibut FAA powder in a liquid, you know (as well as I do) that it takes up to 15 minutes to completely dissolve. This is not only inconvenient, it makes the FAA take longer to kick in as it is digested slower in your body.
Another big advantage for Phenibut HCL is that it comes in capsule form. If you are just looking for convenience when you dose, than this may be the trump card for you. FAA mainly comes in powder form so if you want to get FAA in capsules, you are going to make to do that yourself.
On the flip side, as its an HCL, its very acidic. This means that it will taste a little bitter if you take the HCL with water.
If you would like to minimize the effects of this bitter taste, consider putting Phenibut HCL in coffee or tea. This almost masks the taste entirely.
In capsule form, Phenibut HCL kicks in at the same time as its FAA brother.
Another drawback with Phenibut HCL is that it is not as pure as Phenibut FAA. On average, your typical bottle of Phenibut will contain about 83% Phenibut Molecules by weight. The other 17% will be the HCL (salt-derived) compound.
Overall, if you are new to Phenibut or are just looking for the easiest and fastest way to take the supplement, strongly consider using Phenibut HCL. It kicks in the fastest and its the easiest to take.
Phenibut FAA comes in its Free Amino Acid form. It is more based on the PH scale (less acidic) than HCL.
The one key difference you will notice off the bat with Phenibut FAA is its look. It is a pure white, fluffy powder compared to HCL’s more grainy texture.
While this may make FAA look better, it also means that it dissolves more slowly in liquids. If you like to take your Phenbiut in water, coffee or tea, this may be a minor inconvenience for you.
Another drawback is that most of the Phenibut FAA on the market just comes in powder form. This only magnifies its slow dissolving drawback.
Lastly, Phenibut FAA is known to take a bit longer to kick in than Phenibut HCL. This is because the HCL compound dissolves much faster in water. Once in your body, the HCL will get digested at a quicker rate. With FAA, you may have to wait longer for the Phenibut High.
The one upside to Phenibut FAA is that it is purer than Phenbit HCL. Phenbiut FAA is approximately 99.5% Phenibut by weight.
Essentially, if you are a veteran Phenibut user and want to mix things up, you can consider using Phenibut FAA. This version requires some finesse in dosing due to the inconsistent delivery time. But if you can figure that out, it should be smooth sailing for you with this supplement.
Conclusion: Phenibut HCL Vs. Phenibut FAA
When it comes to your choice between the two, you certainly have a few things to think about.
On the one hand, Phenibut HCL dissolves much faster in water and as such, you get to experience the Phenibut High faster than the FAA version. Phenibut HCL also has the added benefit of coming in capsule form if you don’t have the time or desire to mix it in with your drink of choice.
On the other hand, Phenibut FAA is slightly purer than Phenibut HCL. Also, the FAA powder looks cool as it has a pure white and fluffy texture. One thing to keep in mind though is that Phenibut FAA just comes in powder form. This will put a few restrictions on when and where you can take Phenibut.
Overall, both versions are solid choices. Its up to you which you will choose.
