Farming Stimulants

To farm Stimulants you will want to complete Monster Hunter Stories 2. This adds a tab to the Melynx Inc. menu that allows for an unlimited supply of Stimulants to be purchased. You will need Bottlecaps to purchase them. Getting Bottlecaps is as simple as completing sidequests like the X Marks the Spot quest.

What Stimulants Do and How to Use Them

Stimulants are used to unlock locked Gene slots via the Rite of Channelling. The Rite can be taken on in the Stables menu. You'll then get the option to apply Stimulants. They are broken down into monster type like Bird Wyvern. Unlocking Genes is a great way to improve your monster's stats, so make sure to go into a Rite of Channelling with Stimulants if you can.
