I got a thing of Jungle Juice Gold last week and I've been having a lot of fun with it. The high is amazing along with the euphoric rush and I never get headaches. I'm just wondering what type of Alkyl Nitrate it is based on? I've read that it's Pentyl-bases and that makes sense given that it smells like paint thinner/nail polish remover, but I'm not sure entirely.

I want to explore more poppers. Are there any more intense ones than the JJ Gold?

Hi, what does it say on the label, Jax? Alkyl Nitrate is a spelling error. It is Alkyl Nitrite (with an i).

Isobutyl nitrite, if pure, smells very sweet, pungent and like nail polish compounds.

BUT any impurities present can impart their own odors, so you can't be sure of the type of alkyl nitrite if a popper has too many impurities.

Intensity is related to chemistry. Nobody knows the exact composition that affords the best popper experience. And nobody knows exactly what's in a popper bottle purchased OTC.

BUT all alkyl nitrites lower the blood pressure and cause cyanosis(anemia). Ideally, you want a popper that doesn't lower the blood pressure too far with repeated dosing and still delivers great effects. Low blood pressure will make you feel weak and sick. This feeling is not conducive to pleasure or life.

Generally, the amyl nitrites have less odor than the butyls. Inhalers knew in the early 70s that amyl nitrite had less toxic effects than the butyl nitrites. They knew this because for 9 years they could purchase amyl nitrite ampules OTC without a script. The government put an end to it in 1969 and then the butyls flooded the new market for poppers. Some inhalers were surveyed then and they stated they preferred amyl over butyl due to reduced toxic effects.

@Wowza It says "Contains Alkyl Nitrite and Mink Oil" or something like that. It doesn't specify what Alkyl Nitrite it is.

@Nitritespecialist I poured some into a shot glass, and it is a transparent yellow color? It looks a lot like urine. I read somewhere that Isobutyl is entirely clear and that Pentyl is meant to be this color. Maybe it's a mix of the two? I sessioned it 5 days ago for 10 hours at a party and didn't get a headache. Only felt tired the next day.

All the alcohols used for popper making are colorless, but typically the nitrites are slightly yellow. This can be due to impurities such as nitrogen dioxide, which is a lung irritant. Nitrogen dioxide will form nitric acid when it enters water. Pure nitric acid is colorless, but typically is tinted yellow due to the presence of nitrogen dioxide. Neither nitric acid nor nitrogen dioxide are good impurities in poppers. Nitric acid will stain skin yellow so if your skin is turning yellow from poppers, it probably indicates the presence of nitric acid. Poppers should not sting or stain the skin yellow.

This is exactly what I am wondering. My bottle of Rush says mink oil and alkyl nitrite....but which one is in it! It smells like a permenant marker mixed with some fruitiness like nail polish remover also. I haven't noticed any kind of irritation. But I'd really like to know what type of nitrite it is exactly.
