Inhalable Caffeine

2 years, 10 months ago

This has recently hits the market and the verdict is still out whether FDA will allow it. It can be found in major cities at the moment and is sure to migrate elsewhere.
As is stands Inhalable Caffeine is sold in what looks like a lipstick tube and contains 100 milligrams of caffeine. Consumers take dosage in 4-6 puffs per canister which results in dosage similar to that of a cup of coffee.
I am curious to see the harmful side-affects as well as the group this product will appeal to.
I kindof want to try some…

PS: Here’s a pretty good article I found covering the topic. http://www.thecorsaironline.com/lifestyle/2012/03/08/inhalable-caffeine-stirs-controversy/
PSS: Went to a makers website http://www.aeroshots.com and they do not advertise the product as being inhaled. Simply shot into the mouth and swallowed. Interesting.

I’ll stick to the cheapest way to consume caffeine.

100 count 200 milligram pills for $4 USD.

with big kev.

I was all about coffee. It was either a tossup of time or cost. I had to either pay $2 for a cup or take the time to make a nice cup in a french press. I stopped altogether and will occasionally have a cup every now and then. Switched to caffeine tabs.

On amazon you can get what kev said.

and just picked up a FOB to keep on my key chain and keep tabs in them so I have them on me when I need them.

I cut the tabs into four even pieces, resulting in 50mg each. After much research and testing I’ve found that taking smaller doses spread out over time works best for me. It is also the Yerkes Dodson Law.

I’m not a huge fan of caffeine, though I probably seriously need it, but I still kind of want to try this. It just seems interesting.
Is it tasteless, do you know? Or does caffeine vapor have a flavor?

I hate caffeine. Gives me the jitters or is either plain unpleasant. Meditation and yoga gets me going.
