Alkyl Nitrites ('poppers')
Amyl nitrite or ‘poppers’ are a liquid chemical that act by allowing more blood into the heart – giving the user a ‘rush’.
- Short high/rush
- Enhanced sexual experience
- If poppers are stale, can make you feel sick/faint
- Can negatively affect people with heart problems
Poppers come in small bottles with screw or plug tops. The liquid is a yellow colour and they smell sickly sweet.
Sniffed: poppers are sniffed (inhaled) from the bottle
