What is DHB aka Dihydroboldenone?

DHB (dihydroboldenone) (1-testosterone)

What is DHB?
DHB which is actually called Dihydroboldenone, also known as 1-Test Cyp, is actually not a Testosterone at all, and is more closely related to Boldenone (Equipoise) than anything else.
It is worth noting, that although DHB is similar on paper in structure to Equipoise, it is NOTHING like Equipoise in the way it acts with the user, eg Side Effects and Results.
If you are going to be using it within a Cycle, it CAN be used in place of Testosterone but i would say, look at it as if you are using EQ.
Would you use EQ without the use of Testosterone? So therefore my feelings on DHB are the same as they are with Equipoise. It is better used as part of a cycle that already involves the use of some form of Testosterone, no matter what form of Testosterone is chosen.
Since DHB is a longer ester, being Cypionate, then it would stand to reason that a longer Ester Test such as Enanthate or Cypionate would work well, but once again i repeat, any form of Testosterone or even Sustanon will be fine.

Should DHB be used as part of a cutting or mass building stack?
DHB does not give the user any water retention whatsoever with no aromatizing at all, and also gives the user some extreme Vascularity.
In fact, having used both DHB and EQUIPOISE, i can confidently say, the Vascularity with DHB is even better than the Vascularity that EQ often produces.
I also found that the Thermogenic properties of DHB were closely related to those that i often get using Trenbolone. The increase in body Temp was very obvious at night whilst lying in bed, and although the sweats were not quite as bad as they are with the use of Trenbolone, they are certainly obvious. Therefore the fat burning ability of DHB are also evident, which is why my conclusion is that DHB would make a great drug for prepping for  a competition.
With the correct diet, this drug can really help chisel a fine Adonis type physique.

Can you recommend a Steroid cycle involving DHB?
Since DHB is a safe steroid to use, eg, it does not put any stress on the liver or kidneys when used sensibly, i would say that DHB could be used for as long as 14 weeks.
It is a long Ester, so it is probably not going to kick in for the user in its effects until around 3 or 4 weeks into the Cycle, therefore it may be worth using a kickstarter such as Test Prop or an Oral, which can be Dianabol, Anavar, Winstrol, etc, all dependant on the goals of the individual.
I have personally always preferred a short ester to use as a kickstart to any cycle such as Testosterone Propionate. Since Propionate is such a short ester, frequent injections will be needed to ensure the levels of test in the blood remain as stable as possible. a protocol of EOD (every other day) is the most suitable usage of Propionate although a MON/WED/FRI protocol would also work fine.

Week 1 – 14 400-600mg DHB PER WEEK (Broken into 2 shots if preferred but 1 shot a week would also be ok)
Week 1 – 6 300-500mg TESTOSTERONE PROPIONATE (injected EOD, or Mon/Wed/fri)
Week 1 – 14 500mg TESTOSTERONE ENANTHATE (OR CYPIONATE) (Broken into 2 shots if preferred but 1 shot a week would also be ok)
Week 4 – 14 .25mg(EOD)Anastrozole (Arimidex) (Introduce Anastrazole into the cycle to combat the water retention from the Test E/C)
Obviously it goes without saying that after the Cycle has finished the user must go into a PCT protocol.


I have heard PIP is a problem, is this true?
I have also heard the many reports online here and there that PIP can be a huge issue for users of DHB, i have even read that some users have had to halt the cycle due to the pip.
In my experience with this drug, i have never found PIP to be an issue. Whilst pip has never been an issue, one thing i did notice with this compound is that it does crash often.
The particular UGL’s DHB  that i used was dosed at 100mg per ml,  but each time i needed to inject, i would first need to heat the vial up in a pan of boiling hot water before usage, which meant the compound immediately went back into solution and injecting was smooth and easy.
Perhaps this is why i never did experience post injection pain, and thus my recommendation to anyone considering using this product is to first heat the product up in hot water which will ensure the hormone has well and truly gone back into solution and will also aid the transportation of Hormone through the muscle tissue.
One thing i will comment on.  I have heard of a few UGL’s now making DHB, and one of those ugls claim the dosage to be 200mg per ml.
If there is zero pip, or zero crashing from these high dosed label claims, then my suspicion on the dosage would be raised.
The 100mg per ml product that i used was genuine and made by a ugl called dunning labs, you can purchase direct from the dunning website it did still crash often, but you can get around the crashing by heating up the vial in a cup of boiling hot water.  Just note, any lab producing dhb with a label claim above 100mg per ml and it is not crashing, then it is likely to be fake, or at best under in dosage with a false claim on the dose by the UGL.

  1. Really poor advice. No citations and obviously written from bro science perspective. How do you get off on saying dhb can be used alone when it obviously has no aromatize activity? Your reccomended cycle is plain stupid. What is the point of blasting grams of testosterone when you have more appropriate androgens (LIKE DHB) to do the job? You are not qualified to give advice.
