Below we take an in-depth look into Chaos and Pain Cannibal Ferox, to see whether this highly-potent energy-boosting mix strikes the right balance between high-performance energy and heart-pounding jitters.
Chaos and Pain Cannibal Ferox is a strong pre-workout product that offers a blend of caffeine, stimulants, fat-burners, and a few ingredients designed to boost muscular performance. The dose of caffeine used in this product is huge, with each serving containing 450mg (more than the daily recommended limit for caffeine in just one shot). By combining this significant dosage with several potent stimulants, this product delivers truly heart-pounding effects that are not for the faint of heart (in both a figurative and literal sense).
Cannibal Ferox is produced by Chaos and Pain, an interesting supplement and t-shirt manufacturer from the USA. The main distinguishing feature of Chaos and Pain is their wild approach to naming and packaging products, leading to crazy designs that genuinely wouldn’t go amiss decorating a shelf somewhere.
As you might expect, the list of potential side effects that could result after ingesting such a heavy mixture of stimulants is long to say the list. We’ve picked out the highlights here, but do check the Side Effects tab for more information if needed!
Combining a strong dose of caffeine with stimulants will likely lead to jitters, sleeplessness, headaches, an increased heart rate, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, and increased blood pressure. Other potential side effects caused by the other ingredients found in this product include muscle cramping, stomach aches, drooling, and much more.
Chaos and Pain Cannibal Ferox is relatively pricey for a pre-workout. A 310g tub containing 25 servings costs $39.99 on the official Chaos and Pain website (plus $6-$7 in shipping), and $36.99 on the Tiger Fitness webstore (plus shipping).
We are aware that there is a market for truly heart-pounding pre-workouts, but we cannot seriously advocate that manufacturers sell them in their current form. Customers may enjoy chasing the high that workouts and stimulants can give them, but this won’t change the fact that products like these are seriously bad for your health.
In the past, risky ingredients like ephedra and DMAA have caused heart palpitations, heart attacks, strokes, and deaths. To be clear, this product does not contain anything that has been linked directly with such worrying effects, but they do rely on other stimulants that are untested and unresearched, meaning that we don’t really know what risks they pose. In addition, these relatively unknown stimulants are mixed with a dose of caffeine that is higher than the daily recommended limit, which poses further unnecessary risks. Would customers buy products like these if they realised that they were acting as guinea pigs for untested and poorly-understood stimulant mixes?
Cannibal Ferox will probably work well to provide a burst of energy and a boost to athletic performance, but the side effects it causes could end up being serious, especially if taken over long periods. We recommend remaining on the side of caution and sticking with pre-workouts that are more responsibly formulated.
We do not recommend Chaos and Pain Cannibal Ferox to our readers.
Chaos and Pain Cannibal Ferox is a pre-workout that claims to provide a buzz worthy of any “stim-head”. This powdered supplement is designed to be mixed with water, and claims to provide a fat-burning and endurance-boosting effect to go with its significant energy kick. The colourfully-named flavours available for Cannibal Ferox include Strawbloody Kiwi Crush, Carny Candy, Pineapple Express, and Blackberry Brutality.
This energy-boosting pre-workout is produced by Chaos and Pain, a supplement manufacturer known for its zany packaging designs and interesting approach to naming products. Chaos and Pain have some of the weirdest branding strategies we’ve ever seen, giving otherwise innocuous pre-workout supplements names like “PWND Gamerz Aggro” or “Cannibal Riot”. Their brightly coloured and stylised bottles are decorated in much the same way as a heavy metal fan might spray paint their van, adorned with beautifully-drawn skulls, crying angels, and other eye-catching imagery. Unsurprisingly, the company also sells a line of t-shirts. Customers can contact Chaos and Pain using the contact form provided on the official website, or can email the company at [email protected], phone them on 1-855-798-6039 or reach them by post at 5149 Selkirk, Birmingham, AL 35242.
The directions for use are as follows:
If used strictly as a pre-workout, the manufacturers recommend cycles of 8-12 weeks for maximum performance. If using for fat burning purposes, the manufacturers recommend cycles of 4-8 weeks, with a minimum of one serving per day. Take before workouts and cardio. On non-workout days, take in the morning, or sip throughout the day for an energized treat!
Chaos and Pain’s marketing is always amusingly aggressive, and it will be fun to share the highlights here. Cannibal Ferox is said to be a “beast” that will “knock you on your a**”. The formula offers a sharp burst of energy, as well as an extra set of “heavy hitting thermogenic stimulants” that can supposedly burn fat. Gym buffs will also be pleased to know that this formula claims to offer “the sickest shirt-splitting pump of all time”, one that offers a boost to muscular power and endurance.
Cannibal Ferox contains a number of stimulants and a huge dose of caffeine that exceeds the daily recommended limit. As such, it will deliver a huge burst of energy as promised.
The use of ingredients like creatine and citrulline malate should work well to boost muscular performance and endurance, and the promised fat-burning action may be somewhat present due to the inclusion of two forms of yohimbine and isopropylnorsynephrine.
The ingredients found in Chaos and Pain Cannibal Ferox are listed below. The quantities listed are correct for 1 scoop (14.6g) of powder.
Cannibal Ferox contains a liberal mix of untested stimulants, caffeine and more. The true list of side effects is not known for many of its ingredients, although similar ingredients have been linked with heart arrhythmia and high blood pressure in the past.
This product contains a huge dose of caffeine which actually exceeds the daily recommended limit for caffeine in one dose. High doses of caffeine can cause headaches, jitteriness, insomnia, an increased heart rate, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, and increased blood pressure. Customers that are at all sensitive to caffeine should consider avoiding this product altogether, and all customers must remember to avoid other sources of caffeine whilst using it. This product also uses a substance found in bitter orange called hordenine, which likely carries the risk of inducing a rapid heart rate and high blood pressure.
Yohimbe can also cause a wide range of side effects, including stomach upset, excitation, tremor, sleep problems, anxiety or agitation, high blood pressure, a racing heartbeat, dizziness, drooling, sinus pain, irritability, headache, frequent urination, bloating, rash, nausea, and vomiting. High doses can cause more severe effects.
Although rare, a long list of side effects has been identified for Huperzine A, which can cause increased salivation, an inability to control urination, slurred speech and muscle twitching. The likelihood of experiencing side effects whilst using Huperzine A increases when taking the ingredient continuously for three months or more.
Creatine can cause some side effects including stomach pain, nausea, diarrhoea, and muscle cramping. It also causes muscles to draw water from the rest of your body.
Betaine can cause some minor side effects, including nausea, stomach upset, and diarrhoea, as well as body odour. Although Tyrosine is tolerated generally in very high doses, it can cause some side effects including nausea, headache, fatigue, heartburn, and joint pain.
The most common side effect of Beta Alanine is a tingling sensation in the muscles; many consider this a sign that the Beta-alanine is working, and as evidence that the supplement is indeed correctly dosed. Some people may dislike the tingling sensation, but it is not a sign of anything negative or more serious. Flushing is also a side effect caused by taking high doses of Beta alanine.

Chaos and Pain Cannibal Ferox has not received a huge amount of attention online, although we were able to find some discussions on Reddit and on the sales page for Tiger Fitness. As expected, fans of stimulant-based product that are chasing stronger and stronger products generally like what Cannibal Ferox can offer, although several others point out the formula’s potential for unpleasant side effects.
I tried it and I like it so far, tastes good, definitely very stim heavy.
The new Ferox has just the right combination of effects. Super focus, plenty of energy, pump is OK but I don’t think thats a major focus for them, lots of “push through” power, and no jitters! I sweat much more on it yet my heart rate doesn’t get out of control.
It’s a f**king train hitting you in the face and lighting in your veins. I like it
It will definitely give you a sh*t-ton of energy, that’s for sure. I found myself 2 hours in to a workout and still wanting to stay and do way more. On the other hand, it made me feel very weird. I would start to overheat. Occasionally, I would feel very lightheaded and faint in between sets. My friends also noticed that I acted like a crazy person while on it, probably due to the energy I got from it. After awhile, I got sick of feeling faint and out of it, so I stopped taking it.
This really did nothing for me. Was disappointed especially due their other pre being especially well balanced. Two stars only because the taste was really good.
It’s tricky to say whether Chaos and Pain offer a true money-back guarantee, as they fail to detail their policy anywhere on their website. The sentence quoted below is literally the company’s entire returns policy in full:
Chaos and Pain offers a 100% money back guarantees as it stands behinds the quality of its products!!
As regular readers will know, we only consider a money-back guarantee as such if it offers customers a full refund within a reasonable time on all opened products (even if customers are expected to pay the cost and bear the risk of shipping the item back). If looking to return Cannibal Ferox, it might be worth dropping an email to the company to receive the details of their returns policy in full.
Chaos and Pain Cannibal Ferox is available to buy on the official Chaos and Pain website and on Tiger Fitness. A 25-serving tub of powder costs $39.99 on the official manufacturer’s website, and $36.99 on Tiger Fitness.
