Cannibal Riot by Chaos and Pain is a simple but effective preworkout. Most people will be able to use it as a strong daily driver. There are no illicit ingredients (no Yohimbine, no DMAA/DMHA, only Synephrine could be considered a lesser known ingredient), thus most of the nasty side effects are missing. If you’re worried about pre-workouts having negative health effects, Chaos and Pain Cannibal Riot is your choice. Overall, during my Cannibal Riot review process, I had a nice experience. There weren’t any health scares, no “super highness”, no “cracked out” feel, etc. which can be quite common for the extreme stimulant preworkouts.
- Beta Alanine (3.2g) – A classic muscular endurance ingredient. Will give you that itchy and tingly feeling (which I unfortunately seem to be immune to) and improve performance in the gym slightly.
- L-Citrulline (2g) – A classic pump ingredient. While it’s in the best possible form of Citrulline, it’s unfortunately severely underdosed. Would love to see at least 5g.
- N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine (500mg) – Nootropic and focus ingredient. Conflicting studies are out there whether NALT or simple L-Tyrosine is better. Still underdosed either way, would love to see at least 1g.
- Caffeine Anhydrous (350mg) – Stimulant ingredient. Will give you a pretty strong kick in the butt with its 3-4 cups of coffee.
- Green Tea Extract (300mg) – Pump ingredient that will expand the blood vessels. Nicely dosed will combine well with L-Citrulline.
- Glucoronolactone (200mg) – A rare nootropic ingredient. Will improve focus and concentration.
- Isopropylnorsynephrine (20mg) – A rarely used form of Synephrine. A stimulant that will combine nicely with Caffeine and give you a big boost of energy.
Overall, the label is quite short but seems to be designed mindfully. There are two of each ingredient – two stimulants, two nootropics, two pumps ingredients. Lacking a digestion ingredient, unfortunately, but still – a well-rounded label for this Chaos and Pain Cannibal Riot preworkout.
Can be summarized in one sentence – strong, long-lasting energy. There’s no crazy stimulation, no crazy mood elevation, or insane pumps. It’s clean, fairly strong energy that is productive. It’s a great daily driver that is probably on the stronger end but it will work great for those who want to really focus on the weights and not the effects.
There’s no jitters, shakes, cold sweats, appetite suppression. The side effect profile is brilliant as there are almost none out there. One “side effect” would be a noticeable not great taste. I normally don’t judge pre’s on taste as they’re not intended to be tasty, but throughout my review of Chaos and Pain Cannibal Riot, I noticed a slight apprehension before taking it.
Additionally, there’s little to no post-workouts crash. I barely experienced any effects of lowered energy after the preworkout finally faded.
Overall, a nice, fairly strong experience that is reliable and productive.
Chaos and Pain Cannibal Riot Review Summary
- Price – 7/10. A good price point for a good preworkout.
- Stimulation – 5/10. There’s a little stimulation but nothing to write home about.
- Energy – 9/10. Strong, clean energy. A large advantage is that the energy lasts for hours. Definitely, the standout feature of Cannibal Riot.
- Focus – 8/10. Cannibal Riot provides a decent boost in focus and cognition. Actually surprised me the first time I used it.
- Pumps – 4/10. Nothing to write home about. Some improvement which is most likely from VASO6. Could definitely pump this up much higher with more Citrulline or by including S7.
Overall, a nice addition for someone looking to do one of two things – productive gym sessions or productive work sessions. There’s no super-highness or mood elevation that would distract you from productivity. I’ll be keeping this for the rainy days when work will seem difficult. Reminded me a bit of a stronger version God Status Labz Leviathan.
