As I mentioned in my last post, I was working on a writing assignment during the month of January. For those of you who don’t already know, I’m an attorney from 9-5. I work a minimum of 40 hours per week, and it’s often more like 60 by the time I factor in my commute, client meetings, and other obligations.
When I would get home at the end of the day, the last thing I wanted to do was spend my few hours of free time crafting an intricate legal document. Still, I pushed through, and managed to get my work done ahead of schedule. The final document was more than 60 pages and 15,000 words.
So, how did I do it?
Enter Gorilla Mind
I’ve been following Mike Cernovich for something like 7 or 8 years now. I first discovered him as an undergraduate student when I stumbled on his legal blog, Crime and Federalism. He later published Gorilla Mindset, an excellent book that shows readers how to use the power of mindset to radically improve their lives. It has sold over 100,000 copies. More recently, he has shifted his focus to journalism and filmmaking, and he just released Hoaxed, a film about fake news, last month.
Even though Mike has an ever-growing list of accomplishments, I was skeptical when he released his Gorilla Mind products. I’ve spent thousands of dollars on nootropics and other cognitive enhancement supplements over the years. For the most part, they promise the moon and rarely deliver.
Despite my skepticism, I was scrolling through Twitter one night in December when I discovered that the Gorilla Mind Bundle was on sale. Figuring I didn’t have anything to lose, I ordered the bundle, which contains a bottle of Gorilla Mind Rush and Gorilla Mind Smooth. Ordering was a breeze, and the products were at my house in a couple of days.
Gorilla Mind Smooth
As I mentioned above, I spent most of the little free time I had in January working on my legal research project. The last thing I felt like doing on my time off was researching and writing. Fortunately, Gorilla Mind Smooth was a LIFESAVER.
Before I’d sit down to work, I would take the recommended dose of 3 capsules. Then, I’d meditate for 15-20 minutes. By the time I finished meditating, I was ready to roll.
The effects were subtle, but spectacular. There was no crazy “head change.” No jitters. No anxiety. Just clean, sharp FOCUS.
I was able to sit for hours at a whack with superhuman levels of focus, reading legal filings, researching case law, and then synthesizing everything into cohesive legal arguments. The fact that Gorilla Mind Smooth was able to provide this kind of focus was impressive enough, but the fact that it could do so after I had already worked eight or ten hours at the office was HUGE.
When I started the assignment, it felt daunting. I wondered if I had bitten off more than I could chew, especially given my other obligations. But with the help of Gorilla Mind Smooth, I ended up completing the project ahead of schedule, and the people who have reviewed my work called it “amazing.”
Smooth is a great product and has my complete endorsement. You can buy it here.
Gorilla Mind Rush
I actually tried Gorilla Mind Rush prior to Smooth. After reading Mike’s review of Rush, and his warning about how it was too intense for him, I obviously had to give it a go. I took three capsules, the recommended dose, and waited. Within an hour, my mood soared. My senses were heightened. Things felt more “real.”
At the time, I was visiting family over Christmas break, and found myself easily able to make the multi-hour trek without dozing off, something I often struggle with on long drives, especially given the fact that I was running on too little sleep.
Unfortunately, since I was off work, I wasn’t actually doing much work that required a lot of brainpower, so most of the benefits I experienced at the outset were simply mood and energy related (it also mitigated the effects of hangovers).
I experimented with Rush for my writing project, but like Mike, I found it to be too intense. It gave my entire body, rather than just my brain, a huge boost of energy, and I struggled to direct that into my work. I think it’s probably better suited as a pre-workout for me personally, and I plan to experiment with using it for that purpose in the coming weeks, and will report back here with more information.
Everyone is a little different, and you might find that Rush works better for you than Smooth. Rush is far and away Gorilla Mind’s best seller, and other writers like Ed Latimore are using it with great success.

Gorilla Mind Bundle
If you’re on the fence about whether you should try Smooth or Rush, or if you’d like to try both, you’re in luck! Gorilla Mind sells a bundle pack that includes a bottle of both Smooth and Rush. I recommend getting the bundle and experimenting with both, to see which works best for you in particular situations. Some people even use them in conjunction.
Right now the Gorilla Mind Bundle is on sale for only $44.99. Click here to order now.
