Whether you’re a regular or occasional Poppers user, you may have experienced or heard about a fairly common side effect with this magical little vial!

Headache is the most common unwanted side effect, but don’t panic, it’s totally safe! Here’s a little article to shed some light on this topic that is often overlooked!


Why the headache? 🧠


Poppers are known and appreciated for their vasodilator properties, they allow the blood vessels to dilate and this is what leads to the increase in libido, the relaxation of muscles and the feeling of well-being!

As this vasodilator effect takes effect throughout your body, let’s take a little focus on what happens in your brain box when you consume poppers!

The blood vessels present in your brain will also be affected by this dilation, which will result in sometimes causing some migraines and headaches due to their proximity to your brain!

🧠 PoppersPlanet’s tips for avoiding this 🧠


✔️ Consume a well-stored Poppers: Indeed, if your poppers have been open for too long or worse, if you have stored them incorrectly, it is very likely to cause migraines! So we respect the storage instructions and don’t consume a Poppers opened since 2010!


✔️ Consume a quality Poppers: Beware of poor quality poppers, counterfeits, they are very often sources of side effects because they use imported chemical mixtures, cheaper, but sometimes dangerous, such as hexyl nitrite, …. (or sometimes they are a source of nothing since they literally have no effect …)! Choose well-known brands that are known to use quality propyl, amyl or pentyl molecules (such as Rush, Jungle Juice, Amsterdam Poppers, Quick Silver, ….). At PoppersPlanet, all our poppers are 100% Quali 😉


✔️ Consume your Poppers sparingly: Sometimes even good products can be a source of unpleasantness if consumed in the wrong way or too steadily! Space out your poppers, don’t take too many puffs if you’re not used to it! The secret to a good popper session is to listen to your body!
