FAQ

  • Where is CosmicNootropic located?

    • Our main warehouses are located in California and in Georgia (USA), from which we ship all of our most popular products. Fast US and international delivery is available!
    • Most of the nootropics that we offer are the spin-offs of the research conducted by the USSR Ministry of Defense. The former USSR invested significant amounts of money and human resources into finding ways to improve cognitive and physical abilities of military personnel and astronauts. Many nootropics offered in our store are the result of that research.
    • We also ship a selected number of products from our RU warehouse to most of the countries.
    • For more information check out the Delivery section.
  • Where do you get your products from?

    All of our products are obtained from the largest pharmaceutical distributors, and include official documentation for each of them.

  • Why do you not offer COA of your products?

    • All of our products are obtained from the largest pharmaceutical distributors, and include official documentation for each of our products. This is vastly superior to a usual COA because documents ensure that products conforms to all the requirements set by the state and manufacturers and not simply that the products do not contain harmful ingredients or have sufficiently high purity.
    • If we translated all the accopmanying documents of each new batch of each product into English using notary certified translation, it would take a lot of time and effort, while not anyhow increasing the quality of our products and services.
    • However, if you plan to order a sufficiently large quantity (more than 2 000 USD) of a specific product and are interested in properties of a certain batch of a certain product, we can translate this information for you.
  • Why do I see the pictures of products in English if these are original brand-name USSR pharmaceutical products?

    The  images have been translated into English. The English translations are completely identical to the original ones, including fonts, colors, and everything else. You will know exactly which product you have once you receive your package. We feel like it is important to keep the original factory packaging, so that you know that you are getting a legit product.

  • When shipping peptides, e.g. Semax and Selank, do you use ice packs?

    • According to the Semax drug insert, the drug is to be stored below 10 degrees Celsius (50 F) for a period of two years. And an open bottle of Semax can be stored for 1 month under 30 degrees Celsius (86 F), which implies that only high temperatures are detrimental for the product integrity. The producer of Semax states that it is safe to travel with and does not need to be refrigerated, once opened.
    • We regularly replenish our US stock with fresh batches of Semax. Besides the solution contains 0.1% methylparaben, which acts as a preservative. The vials are sterile and sealed. And the drug is produced according to GMP standards, which is likely to increase the storage life too.
    • However if you are concerned with the product integrity we strongly advise that you choose an express delivery when ordering Semax/Selank/Visomitin from the US warehouse to your country.
  • When shipping Visomitin and Exomitin, do you use ice packs?

    We do not use ice packs for these products because Visomitin travels well and will retain its potency. It should only be refrigerated once opened.

    However if you are still concerned with the product integrity we strongly advise that you choose an express delivery when ordering Semax/Selank/Visomitin/Exomitin from the US warehouse to your country.

  • Is it possible for US citizens to import nootropics?

    Yes. No confiscations of our parcels by US Customs have been reported.

    Generally, under the US law nootropics are not considered prescription drugs. Therefore, their import is not regulated.

    Following circumstances under which FDA allows import of medication:

    • The drug is to treat a serious condition for which effective treatment is not available in the United States;
    • There is no commercialization or promotion of the drug to U.S. residents;
    • The drug is considered not to represent an unreasonable risk;
    • The individual importing the drug verifies in writing that it is for his or her own use, and provides contact information for the doctor providing treatment or shows the product is for the continuation of treatment begun in a foreign country; and
    • Generally, not more than a 3-month supply of the drug is imported.

    US citizens are allowed to import products worth less than 800 USD per day without paying any import duties.

  • How are your products packaged?

    • Our products are shipped in small packages, the contents of which are wrapped in bubble wrap to ensure that the product arrives damage-free;
    • Smaller orders are packed in plastic packets;
    • If you require special packaging, please provide a comment to your order or contact us as soon as your order is confirmed.
  • I want to buy xx packs of Phenibut. Can I do it?

    Sorry, we try to avoid any cases of  nootropics abuse. Phenibut is among those that are sometimes abused. It is quite easy to buy 1lb. jars of Phenibut in the US.

  • Can you guaranty that these nootropics will have a certain effect on me?

    Unlike regular drugs which usually have a degree of physiological effect on all people, most nootropics are known to have different effects on different people.

    For example, Noopept was shown to have certain positive effects on memory. However, some people claim that it rather improves their concentration. Yet, other people claim to be able to find their way around much better in new environments; some people claim, they wake up much easier; others say that their worries go away, etc.

    Furthermore, many nootropics represented here are what’s called Regulators, which implies that they may have opposite effects depending on an individual’s state. For example, Phenotropil – a nootropic with strongest stimulation effects – was found to cause sudden drowsiness in people suffering from sleep-deprivation. Also, taken in the evening, it may improve sleep quality and make some people wake up easier in the morning. The list of effects goes on…

  • Is it good to take various kinds of nootropics at the same time?

    In general, nootropics do not negatively counteract with one another; in many cases, stacking is a good way to increase their potency. One common way to do this is to add caffeine to the stack.

  • What if I am from a country with strict customs but I really want to try your genuine nootropics?

    If you are ready to take customs risks we can ship to your country upon request. But when making orders to such destinations you agree that we reserve the right not to be held accountable for the problems associated with the customs or local post in the receiving country.

    By saying that we also mean that unfortunately we won’t be able to refund or reship your order in case the local customs of your country seizes the package or returns the package to us. That is because even if the product returns to our warehouse, we cannot manually verify its condition and thus cannot send it to another client.

    However if such a thing happens to your parcel we are ready to provide you a store credit worth 50% of your order total. Please contact us if you need more information.

    Please, be sure that you are not breaking any local laws and consult the import regulations prior to order.

  • What if I do not pick up the parcel and the maximum hold time expired?

    There is NO reimbursement in this case.

    Please check out the Reshipment & Refund section for more information.

  • I am looking into nootropics because I had some problems with drugs before. Can nootropics help my brain?

    Taking illegal drugs is a sure way to cause some serious imbalances in the brain. Nootropics are the very drugs that restore the balance in the brain and promote cognitive health. If this is the case it is very likely, they will be a game-changer for you. Please note that nootropics have a capacity to significantly decrease side effects of illegal drugs due to their neuroprotection effects.

  • I am a completely healthy person and I still want to try nootropics. Is it a good idea?

    Nootropics are supposed to restore cognitive health. Because we are exposed to stress daily, very few people can actually claim to be 100% healthy. Therefore, nootropics usually work, one way or another, for most people . If you do not experience any significant amounts of stress, have a healthy diet, and exercise regularly, you might not experience a noticeable  nootropics effect.

  • Can nootropics be abused?

    People who really want to abuse nootropics will always find a way to do it. The easiest way to do so is to close this page and search for a bulk Phenibut powder. However, we do not advise you to do so.

  • I have never tried nootropics before but I am very curious. How should I start?

    It is not very important which nootropic you try first. What’s  more important is the product you try is of pharma-grade quality and that you know how to take it.

  • Why do you have such low prices? Are these real drugs?

    When Cosmic Nootropic was set up, prices for nootropics were two times higher in the US market compared with what we offered: read more. There are several factors in play that contribute to our low prices now. 

    • First, we source our products from different countries and can choose where they can be obtained cheaper. 
    • Second, there is a government control over the prices of pharmaceutical products in the countries that we get products from. 
    • Third, we have our own payment cryptocurrency gateway and also customer-made website, so we do not pay any additional fees.  
    • Fourth, we established good buyer-supplier relations with pharmaceutical distributors in Russia and pharmacies in other countries, from which we are sourcing our nootropics. 

  • What is the minimum order amount?

    We have no minimum order amount. You can order as many nootropics as you need.

  • How do I save on ordering from you?

    There are various ways of how to save more money when placing the order:

    • First, you can use BitCoin and get a 10% off at the checkout.
    • Second, you can use coupons for new and for loyal customers.
    • Third, you can buy from our warehouse in Russia.
    • Forth, you can buy a sufficient amount of products and qualify for a free delivery.

    If you are still unhappy about the prices and want to become a regular buyer of large quantities of products you can always email us and we will discuss this individually.

  • How different are nootropics here from the ones that you can buy elsewhere?

    We offer only genuine drugs, which are not different in terms of quality from the drugs offered at your local pharmacy. That said, most of them were manufactured according to the GMP and national standards. All nootropics we offer have been approved in at least several countries and will be accompanied by drug fact sheets. Buying nootropics elsewhere means sacrificing on quality, as well as taking certain risks.

  • Where are these nootropics produced?

    The majority of nootropics are produced in Russia (Noopept, Phenibut, Phenylpiracetam, Piracetam, Semax, Selank, etc), Austria (Cerebrolysin), Latvia (Mildronate, Phenibut, Adaptol, Demoxytocine), Belarus (Bemitil), France (Stresam), etc.

  • What is the shelf and storage life of your products?

    Most of our drugs will expire in around three years except for Semax and Selank. They will expire in 2 years if refrigerated; However, if kept at the room temperature they should be used within 1 month. Each pack has best-before date.

  • What is the minimum and maximum order size?

    There is no maximum or minimum order size at Cosmic Nootropic. You can order as many nootropic as you need.

  • You claim to want to promote an appropriate use of nootropics. Does it mean that I will have an access to the official drug fact sheets in English?

    Yes, we have a special section of drug sheets that we have translated for you.

  • I have been using Modafinil and Ritalin as well as other FDA-approved stimulants and they all increased my performance. How can nootropics benefit me?

    Nootropics were not designed to temporarily improve your cognitive abilities significantly above your natural level; they were designed to promote cognitive health and, as a result, improve your mood, perception and cognitive abilities.

  • Nootropics are not natural: they are chemically synthesized compounds. So, shouldn’t they be bad for my health?

    A molecule is a molecule. It is neither good nor bad. It is human thinking that draws arbitrary lines: natural is good, synthetic is bad. When we cook, we are synthesizing new chemical compounds. When we work out, our bodies synthesize new hormones. Refusing to take chemically synthesized compounds and taking only natural drugs are not related to being healthy. What is related to being healthy is being aware of what the effect of the drug is and taking those that promote long-term health, be it chemically synthesized or natural.

  • What happened to the Ladasten (Bromantine)? When it will be available? Are there any alternatives?

    Bromantane has been discontinued and will not be available in the nearest future. We have contacted Pharmstandard the manufacturer of Bromantane and they informed us that the drug had been discontinued because its registration had expired. We are not sure if this is the only reason, since Ladasten was not a popular product comparing to Noopept and other drugs produced by the company. A representative of Pharmstandard also stated that they might start to produce Ladasten again at a new factory and with a new registration but this is a long process and, and therefore it remains unclear. In the meantime we can offer you some other interesting similar products: BemitilActovegin and Mildronate.
