I forget exactly where I heard about the Mucuna Pruriens plant but after a bit of research I found the extract that goes by the name DopaBean. I purchased a bottle and was excited to try it out.
Over the course of the next week I would have a pill every now again, sometimes with coffee and sometimes without, sometimes with alcohol and sometimes without. What seemed to be constant was a slight increase in mental agility and alertness. When combined with caffeine it makes an excellent tool for anything that requires a lot of concentration such as programming.
One night some friends and I were feeling cheeky and we poured 2 pills out and railed a few lines. It was pretty dry and unpleasant but we all got a little more stoked. Probably a mild +1. This could also have been from the excitement of doing something stupid but either way, it was fun.
I probably won't put this in my nose again any time soon but I've ordered two more bottles to help out with work when I need a little bit more than caffeine.
