“After Ritalin and Adderall for over 20 years, I desperately needed an alternative. That’s why we made Genius.”
- Peter Barsoom, Founder and CEO of 1906


Drops for brainpower


1906 Genius Drops are the first cannabis edible developed specifically to enhance focus. The product of several years of research and development, this formula uses a special single -strain of cannabis sativa known to aid in mental sharpness, plus six additional plant medicines for cognitive focus, memory enhancement, and calm concentration.

Genius uses Rhodiola to optimize brain function, the Ayurvedic herb Bacopa to help improve memory and reduce stress, Galangal for sustained alertness, and a highly considered combination of L-theanine, Theobromine, and caffeine for sustained energy and lucid thinking. Unlike the common prescription drugs for attentional focus, Genius will not make you agitated, “speedy,” or jittery, and it has no unpleasant hangover effects.

Founder Peter Barsoom describes the genesis of Genius: “As someone diagnosed with ADD at 21 and prescribed Ritalin and Adderall for over 20 years, I had a keen personal interest in finding plant-based alternatives to medications. The goal with 1906 Genius was to create a nonprescription plant-based nootropic for cognitive focus, without unpleasant side effects.”

With a very rapid onset of 20 minutes or less, Genius helps you perform cognitive miracles and tackle everyday tasks. It’s a great substitute for coffee or energy drinks if you need to be mentally on your toes, and it works incredibly well to help push you over the hump of procrastination, disorganized thinking, stress-induced mental paralysis, and brain fog.

Genius contains the lowest dose of THC of all 1906 products, at 2.5mg. Currently, this experience is only available in our new 1906 Drops format, a swallowable coated tablet that is highly portable, discreet, zero calories, gluten-free, and 100% vegan.

As Genius is the newest of our products, and the longest in the making, we’d be honored if you shared your experience with 1906 Genius. Send us your Genius stories here.


Rhodiola is a botanical native to Siberia that enhances mental focus, relieves stress and improves mood. Because it is a natural adaptogen, it optimizes brain function without causing a crash or fatigue as it leaves your system.


Bacopa has been used for thousands of years in Ayurveda to support cognitive function and improve memory. It reduces the effects of stress on the brain, while increasing concentration, mental speed, and visual perception.


Galangal provides a fast energy boost that enhances alertness and focus for up to 5 hours, by increasing dopamine and blood flow. Galangal’s unique energy surge is safe and steady, without increasing heart rate or blood pressure and without the “crash” of other stimulants.

*Plus Caffeine, Theobromine and L-theanine
