Lucy features CPH4, a drug that enhances physical and mental capabilities. Is this drug/molecule based on a real-life substance? Multiple real-life substances? Looking for in-universe or official explanations.

1 Answer 1


Nootropic drugs have been around for quite a while. And there are products and research going on in this field.

Also CPH4 is real. But it does not work as shown in Lucy.
