How to Buy Adrafinil Online
Purchasing a supplement from an online retailer can be a daunting task, and finding a reliable retailer may not be as simple as it first seems. It is extremely important that you research the retailer and manufacturer thoroughly before transferring any money and buying Adrafinil from them. It is integral that you take steps to ensure that the product is safe.
It is never recommended that you purchase supplements from online marketplaces such as eBay. This is for the simple reason that eBay sales are unregulated, and often very basic small time businesses (or individuals) are able to start selling a product. A seller could send you a fake product, or even an opened or dangerous substance rather than the Adrafinil that you thought you were ordering. You have very little protection when purchasing from such websites and so it should be avoided.
One user on Reddit (LegoOctopus) mentions the difficulties with getting a genuine Adrafinil product on Ebay since Cephalon stopped making Olmifon:
“Have you actually been able to find authentic adrafinil? Every supplier I’ve bought it from since it was discontinued sent me a flavorless, water insoluble white powder that was definitely not adrafinil (and was quite possibly corn starch)”
Things to check when considering an online retailer:
- Does the company sell any other products?
- Does the company have plenty of positive independent customer reviews?
- Is it easy to find contact details for the company?
- Does the website provide advice regarding dosage, side effects and people who should not take Adrafinil?
- Does the retailer reveal details of the actual manufacturer of the product?
- Is it possible to view a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) for the product?
If the answer is ‘no’ to one or more of the above questions, then be cautious of the retailer. The above list is not a definitive guide, but offers some useful guidance when choosing a retailer. It may also be true that some retailers do not fulfill the questions above, but still have quality products and services.
Companies should always be transparent in terms of the products they sell and where they are made. It should also be very easy to contact the company in the case of a problem. In terms of customer reviews, remember that those provided on product websites are not always reliable. In order to find independent customer reviews, you should search for reviews of the company in a search engine, such as Google. This way you should be able to find independent and most importantly, unbiased, customer reviews of the company and of the product. Some retailers offer their products on Amazon, which offers a great review system for you to analyse.
The larger the company and the more products they sell, the easier it should be to find information and reviews about the company. As such, larger companies are often deemed more reliable. Any retailers selling Adrafinil in a country where it is unregulated should provide a disclaimer stating that the product is, for example, not designed to treat or cure any illness. They should also provide full details of the Adrafinil being sold, including dosage and any potential side effects.
To ensure that a product is genuine and safe, you should view a certificate of authenticity. If this is not available immediately on the web page, then you can contact the company and ask to view one. The Certificate of Authenticity (COA) is usually provided by a third party laboratory that checks the batch for its safety (e.g. Colmaric Analytics), and confirms that the product is what it says on the label. Often, unscrupulous vendors may only offer a COA from their Chinese manufacturer, which is not always a sign of a pure product.
Remember that price should not always be the main factor when purchasing Adrafinil. Safety should be ranked much higher. After all, there would simply be no point in purchasing a cheap product that was ‘fake’ and thus did not have the desired effects. It is better to research different products and companies in detail before making your decision.
