Are Everest pemium stronger than most poppers?I'm looking to buy them with the wide neck bottle.I'm wondering how the can be stronger than most though as thought most poppers would be similar?

>>>Are Everest pemium stronger than most poppers?
No, they are all the same. Poppers "strength" depends on formula + manufacturing conditions + bottle age. There are only a small number of manufacturers, and they are mostly offering pentyl / good and UK propyl/ not good.
As a major US manufacturer explained in the news, quite surprisingly really, they are all the same. Folks like to talk about a mythical poppers age, but that is just nostalgic bullshit. Pentyl, iso-butyl, hexyl, iso-amyl, all do the same thing, but pentyl (basically amyl nitrite anyway) have less adverse effect.

That's a pity,I wish somebody would come out with a good product.It's such a shame I loved poppers years ago when they were the old amyl and you would lose your inhibitions.I wonder if they still make the original stuff anywhere in the world,mind you I suppose it's impossible to buy and get shipped even if another country does allow it

I didn't say it wasn't a good product, godo99.
'the old amyl'...where did you find this? which country and which year please?

I've been making poppers at home for 12 years. And I can say with 100% confidence that the reagents used to make poppers in the traditional liquid phase, sodium nitrite method DO GO BAD very quickly, within a month or two. Use them or lose them OR only store and use them in a ZERO percent O2, dry environment.
Once they start to go bad, the crude product contains lots of impurities that make the popper weak, more toxic, smelly and just plain unfit to breathe. Distillation might work at this point, but is anyone doing this?

correction: anon aka Ken Jones, aka Nitritespecialist aka john mulligan aka nitrite expert aka brewmeister aka a hundred other offensive names hasn't been making poppers for 12 yrs, he's been FAILING in his attempts to make poppers for 12 yrs.
He's now on another tirade, claiming that the reactants (which he calls reagents (there's only one reagent in the method and that's water, the rest are reactants) decompose so quickly that a bottle of the best will be bad in two months, which is wrong.
The reactants involved have shelf lives of 1 to 2 yrs, excepting the Sodium nitrite powder, which does oxidize, but rather SLOWLY.
He tried to prove this (that the reactants have been his problem all along) to himself in another thread here, and any first year chemist can easily identify through his text that he sabotaged his own powder.
When properly handled, NaNO2 will last a long time. This gimp is claiming his NaNO2 lasted only two months. This idiocy is after years of claiming his failed attempts miraculously recovered their potency and strength after X days (or sometimes after months of being forgotten in a drawer).
He's even claimed to have exceptional results by melting the nitrite in a pan (which decomposes it) and calling it 'refined'
Now . after blaming each of the reactants for his failures (first it was the powder, then the alcohol, then the acid, then ALL of the reactants and now it seems he's back to just the powder has to be costly and goes bad while you're blinking).
With each year his wildly ignorant theories were fighting against the reality of the reaction's needs, but that hasn't stopped him.
Nothing will ever stop this clown, evidently, he'll argue BOTH sides of an argument and then, when he loses, it's on to the next theory with no cognition that he's become a sad disgrace.
Most of the regulars here have Ken's number by now, and he's truly an obstinate nuisance.
Don't let him gaslight you on ANYTHING; he uses words that imply that he's a knowledgeable person, but he's an ignorant joke.
