Knowing where to buy nootropics is almost as important as knowing what nootropics to buy. Whether you’re a seasoned nootropic enthusiast or entirely new to cognitive enhancement, purchasing from a trusted vendor can go a long way toward ensuring a positive experience with nootropics.

Buying nootropics that are classified as dietary supplements – for instance, L-carnitine, choline, L-theanine, creatine, etc. – can be as simple as a visit to the local health food chain, big box discount outlet, drug store, or any retailer that carries vitamins and related products. But stronger and more experimental nootropics such as the racetams, phenibut, adrafinil, Noopept, etc. typically cannot be marketed as supplements and are not carried by most offline retailers, so using these powerful cognitive enhancers means buying from an online supplier.

Choosing the right nootropic vendor requires a bit of research, but it’s well worth the effort; buying from a trusted supplier goes a long way toward guaranteeing that your purchase is convenient and cost-effective, shipping is prompt, and the nootropics you receive are potent and safe. Here’s a brief summary of some things to consider when selecting a vendor, followed by our recommendations for the best nootropic suppliers.



  • Quality Control – There are many factors to consider when making a decision on a nootropics supplier, but quality control is absolutely the most important of all. Buying from suppliers with a history of quality control issues is putting your health and safety at risk, and that’s a gamble no one can afford to take. That’s why it’s crucial to do some research on a supplier before you buy, and the perfect starting point is a visit to the vendor’s site for a review of their policies on product testing. The best suppliers rely on both third-party and in-house testing to determine purity, composition, potential contamination, and more. It’s also important to find out what experiences other nootropic users have had with various vendors by reading forums, blog posts, and articles like this. The nootropic community is your best resource when it comes to finding a trusted, respected, and reliable supplier.
  • Inventory and availability – The range and type of nootropics that suppliers carry vary considerably, so make sure the vendor you’re considering stocks the specific items you want in the form that you want. Some suppliers offer only capsulized nootropics, some specialize in bulk powder options, and others sell both; some vendors have a broad selection of common nootropics and well-known pre-made stacks, while others have a smaller selection but feature newer or more exotic smart drugs.
  • Pricing and discounts – The cost of nootropics can vary considerably among suppliers, so don’t assume that pricing is standard. Be sure to look for ways to save on your purchase; some suppliers offer price discounts for large purchases or free shipping for orders over a certain dollar amount. However, keep in mind that good stuff usually costs more.
  • Shipping – This can be a deciding factor, particularly if you’re considering buying from a vendor located outside the country in which you reside. Most trusted vendors do offer international shipping with some limitations; be sure to check each vendor’s website for detailed shipping information, which may include a list of the countries to which that vendor does not ship to or a list of substances that cannot be shipped internationally or to certain locations.
