"Oleamide is an organic compound with the formula CH3(CH2)7CH=CH(CH2)7CONH2. It is the amide derived from the fatty acid oleic acid." (source https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oleamide)

It is related to the neurotransmitter "Anandamide" and THC, if I'm not mistaken but seems to be more benign in its effects (obviously). It's used for sleep, anxiety, relaxation, depression, mood disorders, and is supposed to have anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, and appetite stimulant properties as well. It can be taken at low to moderate servings and is inexpensive to purchase in generous amounts.

Liftmode offers Oleamide at a low price, and it seems to be rarely sold by other sellers. They have a lot more information about the compound, about its effects/benefits, tips on how to take, etc: https://liftmode.com/blog/category/products/oleamide/. I'm not sponsoring the product, there's just not a lot of information about the product and places to buy, so I'm citing sources.

I purchased 200g last month, stupid me could have paid a $10+ dollars more and bought 500g but I sort of rush-ordered because I really wanted to try it out and use my $20 off coupon I got last year and get a decent amount. I feel comfortable trying it out and will report back to see how well it helps, or not, within the next few days, as it doesn't have many negative side effects or other bad effects associated with it reported but it hasn't been studied much to know for sure, so I'm here just to bring this compound to light as there aren't many articles talking about it.

The taste and smell is not the best, just keep that in mind but it's not terrible either.

Took some last night and felt a lift in my mood while watching a movie, and when I felt like lying down to go to bed I was a slightly more comfier than usual, woke up around 4AM, confused with all these weird dreams, didn't remember falling asleep because I guess I was out so fast, which is actually an effect of oleamide, didn't feel well rested since I went to bed late but I ended up falling asleep for a few more hours around 5-6ishAM. Keep in mind, I also had my klonopin in my system, so I could not verify the effects properly, unless I got some sort of synergy. Took more at noon today to see the daytime effects, ended up skipping my klonopin, and it feels very much like a weak serotonergic drug mixed with gabapentin but less "artificial", I guess. While it does have mood-lifting properties, and it's more benign, it's not the kind of relaxation that I'm looking for, or it's simply not strong enough for me, at least at the dose I used. I guess what I'm trying to say is that it's definitely more of a bed time compound because it doesn't feel clear-headed or "clean" enough for day time. Like every other serotonergic or non-gabaergic drug, it causes the day to have a lingering off feeling or "not quite right", where the time, atmosphere or lighting feels weird but definitely less uncomfortable than atypical antidepressants/antihistamines and anti-psychotics, or similar medications. I would actually take this any day over a medication used for any of the mentioned purposes. It seems to be effective, it's inexpensive, it's produced in the brain naturally, I'd say it's worth a try, and it's another option over plenty of snake-oil supplements that are placebo in a bottle. I can't really assess the full effects since klonopin stays in the system for more than a week but I can still see the effects when the peak effects of klonopin are gone. I'll keep taking and report back.

So, what I've noticed is that it induces sleep quickly right before bedtime, however, when I took it last week I experienced some side effects throughout the night, like restlessness and other kinds of discomfort that's hard to describe, just loopy feeling.
