Frequently Asked Questions

  • What dosage should I take? +

    You'll notice that Caballo comes as a black pill and as a red pill.

    The Black pill is 500 milligrams of Piracetam. The RDA of Piracetam is 1 to 3 grams daily.,

    The Red pill is 500 milligrams of the proprietary Red Pill formula. The RDA is 1 gram and the high end of it is also 3 grams.

    However, the Red Pill formula really is potent and a lot of people may not need or want to consume this much daily.caballo protocol

    There's a specific self experimentation protocol that we recommend enthusiastically, to those who want to get the maximium cognitive bang for their buck, it's called the Caballo Protocol, it's free and you can actually start using it to optimize your Biohacking efforts before you start consuming Caballo.

  • Why should I buy this Caballo 'pre-stacked' from you as opposed to making it myself? +

    Good question! Caballo does include two propertary ingredients, derivatives of Magnesium and Tyrosine which really take the potency of the cognitive enhancement to the next level.

    Other than those two ingredients you are welcome to DIY your own Caballo, in fact here's some pharmaceutical grade sources of the individual ingredients: 

    However, our profit margin is whole lot thinner than you might expect on Caballo, you'll actually save yourself very little money, making it on your own. Especially considering the cost and inconvenience of dealing with powders or capping your own capsules - trust me it's pain in the ass!


  • How do you pronounce 'Caballo'? +

  • Should I take Caballo while pregnant or breastfeeding? +

    Nootropics, including some of the ingredients in Caballo, are commonly listed as something not to take while pregnant or breastfeeding.

    This is a pet peeve of mine... There is no studies, human or animal that show birth defects resulting from Nootropic consumption of the mother. All there is, is an abscense of the opposite.

    Do you want to take a chance with your child? Probably not.

  • What is the origin of the individual ingredients? +

    The majority of the ingredients are sourced from India and China, which are the world leaders in producing pharmaceutical grade molecules. A few of the ingredients were only avaliable from labs in Europe.


  • What does it 'feel' like? +

    Pleasantly intense focus, but at the same time an energizing sensation of optimism about the work ahead of one’s self and the challenges presenting themselves.
    If you are experienced with Nootropics and cognitive enhancers it's similar to Modafinil but without the tolerance curve and sweats.
  • What is the expiration date? +

    All of the raw ingredients we source with at least a 2 year margin on expiration dates. The packaging is doubly inspected for containment at this point. You'll want to store Caballo in a dark, dry place.

  • What other Nootropics should I take with Caballo? +

    Here's a question we like! Caballo is 50% Piracetam so the cofactors in the Piracetam Protocol are a great idea to take with it...


  • Why choose Caballo over the many other Nootropic stacks out there? +

    Nootropic StacksIn short, Caballo is the smart drug stack for smart consumers.

    Over 5 years of operating the ethics watchdog site and personally trying over 70 different smart drugs, I became increasingly skeptical and disappointed with the majority of the stack products we see on the market. Primarily, because there is very little reason to believe that they actually contain the ingredients listed on their labels and in their clever marketing. Unfortunately we don't have tricorders (yet), so there's really nothing preventing dishonest people from selling 'brain supplements' containing nothing but sawdust at outrageous profit margins.

    I am also beginning to suspect that a lot of those pushing Nootropic stacks send high quality, pharmaceutical grade Nootropics to bloggers (like myself!) to review and to their brand new customers and then over time send their repeat customers - who are going to be a whole lot more susceptible to the placebo effect - something completely different than what's on the label.

    The bottom line is that smart consumers should look for 3rd party Certificates of Analysis. Caballo is the only Nootropic stack that is backed up with 3rd party COAs.

    If the creators of a product don't put their real names and faces all over their website and (or) product, make no mistake, their long term economic incentive is to sell literal or figurative sawdust. The worst economic consequences they face for their deception is having to occasionally refund a bottle $29, $39 or $49 sawdust.

    If anything I error on the side of personal transparency, putting my real name and image all over Caballo. The reputation I've built over 5 years in the Biohacking space faces serious repercussions if this product doesn't deliver. It's not marketing hyperbole when I say that I stand behind this product.

    I've written at length about these issues in these articles on

"Caballo 2 day trial" Kit Glover

Johnathon was kind enough to give me a trial run of his new biohacking product, and for never having taken any mental performance increaser's, I was very much able to tell that Caballo had a positive and lasting effect on my concentration and direct task orientated focus. I am currently in the process of setting up a multifaceted bricks and mortar business and have been struggling on regular occasions with trying to achieve to many tasks simultaneously, inevitably resulting in lack of productivity and quality of work. Sometimes I would try to take so much on I would actually just need to stop everything completely and this has of course not been beneficial at all to me.

I took Caballo, 2 pills per day, over 2 days, and was more or less instantly able to zone in on particular tasks without getting distracted by my thoughts and putting something on halt and going off on some other tangent. I have never been particularly effected by drug use in the past, pharmaceutical or illicit, or at least not to the levels I see others, so being aware of this, I wasn't sure Caballo would have any effects on me but without a shadow of a doubt, everything that Johnathon promises from this product he has created, I can certainly attribute towards this little limitless capsule.

My mind is now open to synthetic mental performance enhancers and I hope I and many others have the chance to further experience the products benefits

I am working as a web-developer for my young start up wich is certainly the biggest challenge i've put myself through yet. I need to be really concentrated every day to put together a vision piece by piece, wich obviously can be a pain in the a** sometimes. As chance would have it i got my hands on a sample of the interesting smartdrug-product called "Caballo".

Normally i wouldn't consider taking any drugs or mind enhancer to be more focused at work and, withour trying to brag, i eat very clean and work out a lot so my mind is most probably in a pretty good shape ;) But everyone has his bad days as i mentioned, so a few weeks later (while i was having a hard time to stay focused for about 3 days) i decided to try one pill in the morning and see what happens. I must say that focusing was a bit less hard that day, but the effect was really subtle so i decided to give it a new try another day with two pills. Two weeks later i took the two pills in the morning again and went to work. Soon after my first (and only) coffee in the office i fell into my typical concentration routine wich surprisingly lasted the whole day. This time i was pretty sure that the Caballo did it's work there and gave me the total "in the zone" experience. Even after my lunch, wich is mostly the time i get a bit drowsy, i was still totally focused and able to get my coders groove on. ^^ The last two pills i tried some weeks later and it had the same effect wich was really pleasant as well.

I definitely recommend the Caballo smart drug, altough i think that it (as with all substances) shouldn't be taken too generously because it might fire back at you and cause loss of sleep wich will inevitably take effect on your concentration. But i think that it's the perfect substance to carry you over these typical gaps on our way grinding to the top!

I feel like Caballo gave me a new way of looking at the world. It increased my creativity, and allowed me to look outside of my "tunnel vision". I'm a day trader, and wouldn't recommend it for actual day trading. When you're in the heat of battle, creativity isn't always the best option. But when it comes to doing work and trying to find new ideas, it's a good drug of choice.

"My review of Caballo" by Student Hardcore

HI! Like I said you on Wednesday, the next day I had an exam about electromagnetism theory. I didn't study enough for it, and I had to study until 2 am to 3 am if I wanted to win it. Hence, I took one pill at 4.50 am when I woke up, because the exam was at 6 am. When I was doing the exam I felt good mentally, but tired physically. In the class I didn't have sleep, I was very focused, despite of don't having slept enough. My academic problem don't finished there after exam (jajajaja). On friday at 6 am again, I had an exam about thermodynamic, and for that reason I took 2 pills more on Thursday. During the day I felt very very focused and without anxiety, this latter is good for me, because I be something nervous. Because I'm a little nervous with exams when no time study. I had to read me 4 chapters of a book of many mathematical formulas, I could only read three. Friday was the examination at 6 am, I did very well on the exam. I'm very happy with that. Do not know how long this horse in the body, but I am usually very very very nervous to make a presentation, and I had an exhibition today. And the truth I did not feel nervous despite learn me almost an hour before the presentation. Horse charm me, and I would like to get a few more, because next Saturday I have a partial examination of electromagnetic theory, and these tests are very complicated, because everything is physics mathematics applied.
