4 Ways To Get In The Zone Using Nervous System Calmers And The Endocannabinoid System
The ability to get in the zone quickly and effectively could change your whole life. Once you can command the hyper-focused brain flow at will, your productivity levels will skyrocket. This article is about getting you into the optimal brain state (the Apex performance zone) by adding cognitive enhancers that calm your nervous system and boost your endocannabinoid system.
1. Combine Sympathetic Activators With Parasympathetic Calmers to find the right balance.
If your body/brain gets over-optimized or overworked, your performance will decline. It can lead to brain fog, anxiety, and procrastination. The goal is not to have your brain perform at maximum capacity at all times. You can have short bouts of maximum brain power for workouts and other hyperintense activities. However, staying in that state isn’t sustainable and will lead to burnout.
Here’s the breakthrough strategy: combine cognitive enhancement supplements that calm your nervous system when you take potent Nootopia blends. This usually leads to absolutely amazing states where your brain is at its Apex, but you feel calm, connected, and resourced.
When you take sympathetic activators with parasympathetic calmers in the right ratios for your physiology, you will experience peak brain state or “Apex Performance.”
That’s why we’ve designed most of the Nootopia stacks with this concept in mind.
2. Take ‘Brain Breaks’ To Calm Your Nervous System And Create Your “Magical Sweet Spots”
Many of the Nootopia blends and stacks are “brain accelerators”: Power Solution, Focused Savagery, Apex, and Nectar X. Just like a car, it’s important to have “brakes” to slow things down when you’re going “too fast.” Upbeat, Brain Flow, and Magnesium Breakthrough are powerful “brakes.”
Here are our suggestions for nervous system calmers and brain breaks:
1. Magnesium Breakthrough: 1-3 capsules
One capsule taken with your Nootopia stacks really “smoothes out the edges,” especially if you’re sensitive to stimulants.
Feeling a bit “burnt out”? Then take 1-3 capsules every four hours until you feel calm. Magnesium Breakthrough will also help shift your nervous system into parasympathetic mode, which is crucial because you will be energizing your nervous system to a certain degree with the nootropics.
2. L-Theanine: 100-400-mg.
L-Theanine is a great nervous system calmer. It boosts your alpha brain waves and elongates the effects of caffeine.
3. Cannabidiol (CBD): 30-100 mg.
CBD can also boost alpha brain waves while increasing your serotonin and anandamide levels. It’s incredible in Matty G’s Zamner Zone coffee recipe below. It also stacks powerfully with the oil nootropic blends to create new states.
4. Lavender Oil: 1-2 capsules
Lavender oil is another alpha brain wave booster. You can buy capsules of lavender oil or have an oil diffuser in your office, which is a great tool when you need to put on “the brakes.”
3. Improve Your Brain Flow By Activating The Cannabinoid System
After years of testing, we believe that stacking Cannabidiol (CBD), Cannabigerol (CBG), and Cannabidiol (CBD) with nootropics can lead to NEW Breakthrough Brain States. Why?
The cannabinoid oils merge with other oils and help transport all oils + fat-soluble ingredients into the body and pass the blood-brain barrier.
At the same time, CBD/CBG/CBN can boost serotonin and anandamide. These are powerful bliss substances to add to any state. They improve EQ (emotional intelligence), connection with others, conscious contact with a higher power, and can lead to new ways of seeing the world.
4. Try Matty G’s Zamner Zone Coffee Recipe
I LOVE taking this recipe with the Breakthrough Brain Stacks – especially combining it with the Social Command Stack. I use this when I want to maximize my verbal fluency and social drive.
First of all, kudos to Dave Asprey for creating this epic coffee upgrade. These are my tweaks on the classic Bulletproof coffee recipe, designed to take along with nootropics.
IT’S VERY IMPORTANT TO DIAL IN THE CAFFEINE TO THE OPTIMAL DOSE.
My main warning is to adjust the caffeine levels of the coffee based on your tolerance. Many stacks will AMPLIFY the caffeine significantly (especially Power Solution and Focused Savagery). Keep in mind the Brain Stacks already contain some caffeine, and you’ll feel some stimulation from that.
I like using half-decaf/half-caffeine personally. If you’re a fast caffeine metabolizer, you can go full caffeine. If you’re hypersensitive to caffeine, use decaf.
● 2 cups of organic coffee (if you don’t like caffeine, use decaf or half-caf/half-decaf)
● 1 tbsp of grass-fed butter
● 1 tbsp of MCT oil
● 1 dropper of Primergen-V
● 1 dropper of Primergen-M
● 30-60 mg of CBD/CBG (I like Charlotte’s Web — use a full spectrum to get the optimal
● Healthy Sweetener of your choice (I like Omica’s Butterscotch drops)
● 1 tbsp of organic RAW cacao powder (much stronger nootropic effect from the raw
Make your coffee of choice, then combine it with all the other ingredients in a blender for 2 minutes (for maximum emulsification and molecular bonding). Sip over a 2-4 hour period.

Mr. Noots is quite possibly the most advanced brain chemist and formulator alive today. He was born with a natural knack and passion for chemistry. As an adult, Mr. Noots became a founder and CEO of multiple companies and realized that his biggest limit – the difference in his success or failure – came down to his brain.
Mr. Noots became the greatest plant extractor in the world. He wanted perfection. So, he did thousands of experiments, data collection and optimization to open up the portals to what we call the “Zamner Zone” – legendary levels of greatness. This included development of revolutionary, proprietary extraction technologies that were able to pull out the most bioactive components of the safest, most well-researched brain nutrients…
And deliver effects that are multiple times more potent than off-the-shelf ingredients.
