This pre workout is one of the hardest ones to get. Once Gold restocks, we'll update this page.
For now, the original is still available.
Crack Gold is the same exact pre workout as the limited edition, with both DMHA and DMAA, and it's available.
Pre workouts with this strong of a stimulant profile might not be hard to find but this is intelligently designed for long lasting energy and pumps.
It has DMAA, Vaso6 and more.
This is a hard to find pre workout, and it'll likely be sold out soon with it's very limited quantities.
You can still get the original Crack from here.

Very effective at increasing energy and focus 5/5
Super packed with effective ingredients for enhancing energy
Looking for a potent pre workout?
If your last pre workout didn't have enough DMAA or pumps, then look no further…
This pre workout doesn't only have 100mg DMAA but it also has DMHA, nitric oxide boosters, nootropics and thermogenics.
And of course, Dark Labs doesn't stop releasing products, check out their Flame pre workout with 500mg eria jarensis.
Crack features a formula that you haven't seen before.
Typically, pre workouts will contain anywhere from 60 to 80mg, with some going as high as 100mg.
Crack is quite a potent pre workout with a unique take on mixing 100mg DMAA with DMHA, eria jarensis and more.
And with variations being released every now and then, you'll likely find yourself loyal (and addicted) to Dark Labs.
And they are consistently putting out potent pre workouts, like Flame, a 500mg eria jarensis product that is sure to light a fire under you.
A quick note, the ingredients that are crossed out are the ones used for the original Crack version which can still be bought.
Crack Limited Edition (200mg DMHA + 100mg DMAA!)
Update: Gold Edition of Crack has just been released and it's the same exact formula as the Limited Editions (Christmas + Halloween).
So everything written here applies to Crack Gold Edition.
There are limited editions of Crack and they are hard to find.
This version hits harder than the original and it's even better than Dark Energy.
Crack Christmas Edition contains 300mg eria jarensis, 200mg DMHA, and 100mg DMAA.
It's clear most people won't be able to handle a full scoop, nor should they try.
While it still has ergogenic aids, like citrulline malate and beta alanine, they are a little under-dosed so even if you take a full scoop, you won't be able to get enough of these ingredients.
It won't matter if you take it at half a scoop, and you'll still get 500mg agmatine, 250mg caffeine, 150mg eria jarensis, 100mg DMHA, and 50mg DMAA.
A little over half a scoop and you'll bump up those numbers.
Compared to Dark Energy, this is much harder hitting due to the fact it doesn't have anything to relax you, like GABA.
So where can you get Crack Limited Edition?
Look at the ingredient panel below for the limited edition.
Or if you prefer a pre workout with 500mg eria jarensis, 300mg DMHA without DMAA, then check out Flame.
Compared to the standard version, you'll get less ergogenic aids, nitric oxide enhancers and more stimulants.
Much more stimulants.
The standard version has 120mg DMAA, while a lot, more isn't necessarily always better.
DMAA works fantastic when it's dosed around 80mg, anything more than that and it gets a little risky for elevating blood pressure.
But the standard edition does have more nitric oxide boosters to help lower blood pressure and increase pumps.
Crack Gold Edition
Crack Gold Edition has been announced and should be releasing very soon.
This will be quite similar to the limited version of Crack (Halloween / Christmas).
So far, we know it'll have the same stimulants, DMHA, DMAA along with 500mg caffeine.
We'll have to wait and see…
We'll update as soon as we find out more.
You can follow me on Instagram as I'll probably announce it there first.
Dark Labs did a great job formulating both Crack and Crack Gold.
For the original Crack, DMAA is dosed high, at 120mg, there's nitric oxide boosters like nitrates and agmatine to help keep blood pressure under control.
Every dosage disclosed but everything is clinically dosed, aside from the 1.5g of beta alanine which should be supplemented on it’s own anyway.
The stimulants are packed, looking at 400mg caffeine and 120mg DMAA, no one should be taking a full serving unless they are prepared for this.
Citrulline malate, agmatine, and arginine nitrate are the big nitric oxide boosters and the pumps will last long thanks to the defensive L-Norvaline.
This is also topped off with Grains of Paradise for fat burning, though you’d still be getting thermogenic effects from the big combo of DMAA and caffeine.
For the Gold Edition, there's less nitric oxide boosters and more exotic stimulants with DMHA, DMAA and eria jarensis.
Let’s dive into the ingredients…
Citrulline Malate 2:1 (8g)
Citrulline is the better version of arginine as it’s been accepted that this is the superior version to have.
The problem with arginine is that it is just not as bioavailable as it should be.
And anything over 10g causes gastronomical issues.
Citrulline is not only highly bioavailable but it is much more effective at increasing nitric oxide levels, decreasing muscle soreness and enhancing recovery.
In fact according to research performed in 2010, citrulline can increase reps by 52.92%, due to its ability to decrease fatigue and increase oxygen.
It can improve blood flow, leaving your muscles more full with nutrients and blood, allowing you to reach a solid pump.
Clinical doses starts with 6g going up to 8g, and Crack has 8g which will give you maximum benefits from citrulline.
So by the time you take Crack, the energy will settle in hard and you’ll be more pumped thanks to the citrulline in here and you’ll be motivated as you’ll also be able to workout longer.
Beta Alanine (3g)
Beta alanine is one of the most researched ingredients out today.
It is often used with supplements like creatine because they both work in synergy.
Being a derivative of alanine, beta alanine has power and endurance boosting properties especially for exercises that last anywhere from 60 to 240 seconds.
While people may either hate or love the tingling sensation, it’s one ingredient that you’ll feel it instantly working when taking it.
Beta alanine is a must have because it increases carnosine levels, helping clear and delay the lactic acid build up that causes the burning sensation you get from performing high reps.
To take full advantage of these ingredients, it’s recommended to dose it at 3.2g on a daily basis as it takes time to saturate your muscles like creatine.
It’ll not only help with endurance but it’ll also increase power output, strength, and all in all helping increase work capacity as it will help maintain intensity for longer periods of time.
If you can’t stand the tingles, try splitting the serving in half, you’ll still be getting 60mg dose of DMAA along with the other ingredients here that are generously dosed.
You can still get the original crack from here.
Agmatine in a high stimulant pre workout is an absolute must because DMAA may elevate blood pressure.
Aside from that, it’s popular for it’s nitric oxide abilities as it can elevate N.O. levels and prolong those levels for long periods of time.
This translates to better, longer lasting pumps, even long after your workouts.
Agmatine is a metabolite of L-arginine and it has an incredible bioavailability rate, making it much more effective at increasing nitric oxide levels.
Citrulline works in synergy with agmatine and citrulline increases arginine while agmatine protects arginine from being broken down.
Normally a dose that ranges from 800mg to 1g is used in pre workouts, while higher doses are found in nitric oxide focused supplements.
But Dark Labs is using a massive 1.5g.
So even at half a serving, you’re still getting the best of both worlds, from energy to long lasting pumps.
Arginine Nitrate (1g)
We’re not done with nitric oxide boosters yet…
Arginine is known for being inferior for its bioavailability, but when you attach a nitrate to it, it becomes something else entirely.
Using arginine that’s bonded with nitrates helps tons because it decreases the risk for nitrate tolerance, which is common when taking nitrates.
Like agmatine, nitrate is effective at increasing vasodilation, allowing for more oxygen rich blood to be delivered to working muscles.
This will let you put in more work into your workouts, as your oxygen expenditure will be decreased and you’ll less likely be fatigued towards the end of your workouts.
At 1g, you’re getting a sufficient dose here as agmatine, citrulline and even beet root powder is included in Crack.
And the next ingredient is naturally rich in nitrates….
Beet Root Powder (1g)
Beet root powder is typically used in nitric oxide formulas because of it’s naturally high content of nitrates.
As mentioned, nitrates are effective at increasing blood flow allowing more nutrients to be delivered to your muscles.
This will have a massive synergistic effect with the other nitric oxide boosters here and there’s even norvaline, another effective addition for the pumps.
Norvaline comes from the amino acid valine, and it works similarly to agmatine.
It prevents the enzyme that eats away arginine in the bloodstream, allowing it to be a defensive type of nitric oxide booster.
It’ll prolong the pumps and allow for more arginine to be available in the blood.
There’s already 3 highly effective nitric oxide boosters to attack the pump from different angles, from producing nitric oxide and prolonging the effects and keeping them at higher levels for a longer period of time.
Needless to say, you’ll be getting huge pumps with this and we still have stimulants and nootropics to cover…
Choline Bitartrate (500mg)
Choline is an essential nootropic to have as it can reinforce the integrity of cell membranes.
It can do multiple things from increasing acetylcholine production, to being oxidized into betaine.
When it’s oxidized into betaine, it can increase cognitive function and enhance cardiovascular health.
Caffeine Anhydrous (400mg)
There's 300mg of anhydrous and 200mg of caffeine citrate.
Caffeine is the godfather of stimulants and it’s one of the most proven stimulants as it’s highly researched and backed by hundreds of studies.
It decreases adenosine allowing you to feel energized and alert.
The 500mg dose with DMAA is quite high, hence why we’ve been recommending to take half a serving or even less.
At half a serving you’re still getting nice doses of nitric oxide boosters and more.
Eria Jarensis (300mg)
The 300mg dose here of eria jarensis is fairly big and it'll have some nice enhancements to the mood especially as it's combined with both DMHA and DMAA.
It works by increasing dopamine production so you'll not only feel good but you'll also feel motivated and uplifted to workout.
Gold Edition has both 200mg DMHA and 100mg DMAA, while the standard edition has 120mg DMAA.
DMAA is the controversial stimulant that is usually hard to find.
It’s stronger than DMHA and it works better when it’s paired with caffeine.
Similarly structured to amphetamines, DMAA enhances mood as well as focus while barely affecting heart rate, at least in doses under 80mg.
When you get as high as 120mg, the risk for elevated blood pressure increases, especially when you pair it with 400mg caffeine as it is here.
The FDA has been making it difficult to get this stimulant, however it is here in a big amount.
Stick to half a serving or even less and you'll get plenty of stimulants and nitric oxide boosters.
Fat Burning Ingredients
The other ingredients include:
- 50mg Hordenine
- 25mg Naringin
- 1mg Alpha Yohimbine
These 3 ingredients are typically used in fat burners but here it's used to enhance Crack, as hordenine can help prolong the effects of the stimulants in here.
And there's a moderately small dose of alpha yohimbine at 1mg.
Sceletium Tortuosum Extract (25mg)
Kanna, scientifically known as sceletium tortuosum extract, is a herb known to decrease stress and anxiety.
It works through selective PDE-4 inhibition and it also works as a 5-HTP reuptake inhibitor.
This means it won’t only be useful for stress and anxiety reduction but it can also increase blood flow, leaving you with better and long lasting pumps.
Grains of Paradise (15mg)
Grains of paradise has a thermogenic effect and it’s typically found in fat burners.
It’s similar to ginger, burns fat effectively without being a stimulant.
Since it’s high in 6-Gingerol and 6-Paradol, it’ll help decrease visceral fat.
It does this by transforming adipose tissue into brown adipose tissue, basically allowing greater energy expenditure.
The dose at 15mg is a bit low but there’s already high doses of stimulants and this isn’t meant to be a fat burner anyway.
The Gold Standard of Exotic Pre Workouts
Crack Gold is a hardcore pre workout.
With 100mg DMAA, 200mg DMHA and 500mg caffeine in each serving, you’ll be in for a high energy ride.
The pumps will also be decent, helping you feel more motivated to lift more.
Dark Labs has set a high bar for standard and they are putting the other “labz” companies to shame with it’s effective formula.
Also you can still get the original Crack from here.
The original Crack has better pump ingredients, a high dosage of DMAA (120mg) but without the eria jarensis and DMHA.
