Looking for a Poppers Rush?

When using any substance, whether you are a newbie or a connoisseur, it is important to learn as much as possible about the product. When it comes to poppers, there is much that is both known and unknown regarding the brand Rush.

Rush poppers contain the chemical isobutyl nitrite, which is often confused with amyl nitrite. These chemicals produce pretty much the same effects, which include a feeling of relaxation (especially around the anal muscles), euphoria, dizziness, and an increased libido.

Commonly referred to as ‘amyl‘ because of the well-known chemical named ‘amyl nitrite‘, poppers also go by numerous other popular names. These include leather cleaner, Jungle Juice, JJ, video head cleaner, etc. Poppers may also be referred to by their actual product or brand name. These can include: Everest Premium, Iron Horse, Amsterdam Special, and Lockerroom.

Manufactured by Pac West Distributing (PWD) , Rush poppers are one of the most well known and most prevalently used brand of poppers on the market today. The certified name of their product is ‘Rush Incense Liquid’, and it is marketed and sold within more than one hundred countries around the world. Rush made its entrance into the California market over forty years ago and it continues to be one of PWD’s best-selling liquid popper aromas.

Is Rush a Drug?

A drug is defined as a “medicine or other substance which has a physiological effect when ingested or otherwise introduced into the body”. So, yes; Rush most certainly is a drug! Poppers fall into a class of drug known as depressants. This means that following from the use of a depressant, the messages traveling between the user’s brain and body become slowed. Poppers also act as vasodilators; this means that blood vessels dilate, and the involuntary smooth muscles begin to relax.

Rush Effects

The effects of Rush can be felt as quickly as 30 seconds following use, and they last for about two to three minutes (though this can differ between individuals – everybody reacts differently to different things). The factors that affect how a person reacts to a drug can be categorized into ‘Set and Setting’, a model coined by Timothy Leary (famous advocate of psychedelic drugs) in 1964 and then later, in 1984 by Norman Earl Zinberg (a psychoanalyst and psychiatrist). These factors affect how a person reacts to and experiences a drug.

  • ‘Set’ refers to a person’s mindset when taking the drug. This doesn’t simply refer to their mood; it also includes their entire mental state, as well as temperamental dispositions, life experiences, thoughts, and expectations about the drug. Set can even include things like a person’s religion or spiritual beliefs; anything to do with who a person is and what they believe, think, or feel can affect their drug experience. Because a person’s mindset can dramatically affect how they experience a drug, it is important to take note of how you are feeling before using one: What are your expectations? Do you have any anxieties? If you are in an extremely low mood, using drugs can sometimes make that mood worse. Pay attention to your mind state to ensure the best experience possible!
  • ‘Setting’ is exactly how it sounds: it is a person’s physical and social environment. This can include the people you are with and their vibe, the atmosphere of the place you are in, your temperature, the music, or even the weather. If you are at a fun party and are comfortable with the people you are with, it is likely that you will have a better experience. If you are uncomfortable, anxious, or stressed in your environment, this can lead to a negative experience. Even something like your temperature is important; pay attention to make sure you are not too cold or overheating. Overheating on certain drugs can be dangerous; in some cases, it can be indicative of an overdose. If you’re feeling too hot or cold, this can be indicative of an overdose or can lead to death.

Whilst drug overdoses are rare, it is important to always pay attention to your body when consuming drugs. Drink a balanced amount of water, make sure you aren’t overheating, pick a good group of people to play with, and keep an eye on your friends. When we look out for each other, we can stay safer!

Some other factors that can affect how poppers may affect you include:

  • Size and weight
  • Any other drugs in the user’s symptom
  • How much is taken at once
  • Amount of physical activity both before and after inhaling
  • How much fresh air is breathed in while inhaling the drug
  • The strength of the drug

How Do People Typically Use Rush?

The method of drug administration for poppers (meaning how the drug enters into the body) is through inhaling. Poppers are inhaled to produce their effects; they are NOT to be smoked, swallowed, snorted, or injected. If swallowed, poppers can be fatal. They can also burn if they come into direct contact with the eyes or skin, so act with caution.

Poppers are not an addictive drug and you will typically not experience any dependence on it. There also will usually not be any specific withdrawal symptoms experienced. However, the person using it may need a few days for their bodies to adjust without it.

The Side Effects of Poppers

So, what are the side effects of Poppers? As talked about above, poppers are used for the euphoric or intoxicated feeling, or for enhanced sexual excitement. However, it is important to remember that poppers are still a drug that can cause side effects:

  • A sudden, drastic drop in blood pressure
  • Increased heart rate
  • Dizziness
  • Lightheadedness
  • Warm sensations throughout the body
  • For those with low blood pressure, after taking poppers, they could potentially faint and lose consciousness.

On top of the side effects of the blood pressure changes, the drug can also cause the following issues and effects:

  • Allergic reactions – With scented poppers, sometimes users can experience allergic reactions due to certain smelly chemicals.
  • Crusty skin lesions – The fumes of amyl nitrite can cause crusty skin lesions; they are the most typical around the nose and lips.
  • Headaches – Due to the widening of the blood vessels in the brain, headaches are a typical side effect of taking Jungle Juice poppers. They can vary in strength, and could persist after the good effects of the drug have worn off.
  • Pressure in the eyes – Amyl nitrite will increase the levels of fluids in the eyes, which could cause intraocular pressure. It can be very dangerous for people who have or at risk of getting glaucoma.
  • Relaxed muscles around the anus – Taking poppers will relax the anus muscles, which is one reason that gay men use it to enhance their sexual experiences. However, poppers could potentially hinder erections as well.
  • Respiratory reactions – Inhaling poppers can affect breathing, and can even lead to wheezing and sinus problems is repeatedly used.
  • Lastly, poppers can potentially cause loss of coordination, chest pains, nausea, and nosebleeds in some users.

Anyone with issues regarding their blood pressure, heart, glaucoma, or anemia should completely avoid using the drug altogether.
