Psychedelics (LSD, DMT, magic mushrooms) have no definitive connection with sexual side effects. Some users may experience this, but it is only how the chemicals work, given their state of mind.
Shrooms, in particular, are not sexual stimulants. Poppers, on the other hand, have been used to enhance the sexual experience since the 1960s but are not regulated or considered safe to use.
This article will discuss poppers, magic mushrooms, and what to expect if you mix them. We would like to disclaim poppers are not considered safe and can have many adverse reactions. Mixing poppers and shrooms can be dangerous.
- Poppers are alkyl nitrites used to enhance sexual experiences.
- Poppers can be harmful to your health.
- Interactions between psilocybin shrooms and poppers have not been documented.
- Mixing poppers and magic mushrooms can increase your heart rate.
- Poppers and shrooms cause euphoria.
- Large doses of psilocybin and poppers could potentially cause a bad trip.
What are Poppers?
Poppers are considered psychoactive; the main ingredient, amyl nitrite, is harmful to human health. Poppers are used recreationally to enhance the sexual experience.
They are used by sniffing the chemical for an instant reaction. There are many known side effects of alkyl nitrites, including euphoria, increased heart rate, nausea, and if swallowed, they can be fatal. Repeated use can also lead to damaged eyesight.
The immediate effects of poppers are headrush, euphoria, increased arousal and reduced coordination. The effects can last up to a few minutes or as little as ten seconds. It greatly depends on the amount absorbed through the inhalation process.
They go by many names, such as room deodorizer, butyl nitrite, heart medicine and liquid gold.
The effects of poppers may be appealing to you while using magic mushrooms, but they could also react negatively with your current shroom trip.
Should I Take Poppers and Magic Mushrooms?
Poppers and psilocybin are used to enhance the experience but in different ways. Shrooms will enhance your conception of the events, whereas Poppers will enhance the physical feelings. You still want to be able to control your feelings, so you have to find what works; start low and go slow.
Regular use of poppers may create a need for higher doses to achieve the same effects and can develop a physical addiction to the drug. If you depend on drugs to achieve a particular physical result or cannot tolerate the uncomfortable physical effects of abstaining from drugs, you can develop a physical addiction.
The most important thing to note is taking a large dose of shrooms, enough that you will trip, may not go together well with amyl nitrate. This is because the shrooms will profoundly affect your mental and physical faculties. Inhaling poppers while tripping could easily cause a bad trip or make you vomit.
Anyone doing this may want to restrict themselves to a small dose of psilocybin that only causes some euphoria without any intense psychedelic effects.
Are Poppers Safe?
Recreational drugs may interfere with functioning, leading to problems with erectile function, and overuse may cause more chronic forms of ED (erectile dysfunction). You should not drive with either substance; the effects of these drugs can take hold very quickly and, unlike alcohol, cannot be controlled.
Aside from well-known effects, both pleasurable and unpleasant, one of the disappointing side effects of some of these drugs over the short-term it affects the way that they seem to boost your desire for sex, but at the same time, they take away your capacity for it.
For a group of substances while getting laid, poppers can have an unexpectedly harmful impact on your ability to have an erection.
Poppers are research chemicals only, so for some, that first hit may be problematic, mainly if the drug contains adulterants. Because of the nature of poppers, the quality varies, and some may not be as labelled.
There is one easy explanation for the increase: Certain drugs make you feel more social, tactile, happier, and high. Using hallucinogenic drugs such as psilocybin may cause individuals to develop high tolerances.
Nitrites and Shrooms
Psilocybin is a psychedelic drug that has effects similar to those of LSD. Psilocybin and psilocin are hallucinogens that people have used for thousands of years. Common phenethylamine psychedelic tryptamines include LSD (acid) and shrooms-derived psilocybin.
In 1844, Antoine Jérôme Balard synthesized Amyl Nitrite. It was originally used to control heart problems and combat cyanide poisoning. Now it’s mostly used by gay and bisexual men to get a rush and increase sexual desire for a brief period. Although popularized in these communities, the effects exist for anyone using it.
All drugs can be divided by their primary effects on users. How street drugs affect you will vary depending on the type of drug, your physiology, how much you are using, your mood, and the surrounding circumstances. Understanding the effects of each chemical and how it affects you personally is important; only you can decide if you think they may go well together.
Taking psychedelic mushrooms with poppers may be dangerous and lead to long-term health problems. However, clinical trials are conducted using mushrooms in potentially lethal cancer patients. In addition, researchers used psilocybin in a recent trial to help people stop smoking tobacco.
Effects of Poppers with Shrooms
The effects of poppers are mainly caused by the rush of blood flow to many parts of the body. This causes;
- Few minute headrush
- Increase in sex drive
- Skin and nerve sensitivity
Which can follow with;
- Lack of coordination
- Nosebleeds, headaches and chest pains
With the after-effects of poppers, they don’t sound like a great idea when you’re tripping hard on shrooms. The main effects of shrooms are;
- Happy or excited
- Confused or paranoid
- Anxious or overwhelmed
- Lead to nausea and vomiting
- Distort vision and hearing
- Cause hallucinations and a psychedelic “trip”
With these things in mind, it’s up to you to decide whether or not you should mix magic mushrooms and poppers. They will produce a highly euphoric feeling but will likely lead to nausea. It’s important to understand the effects of each at different doses before taking them together.
Psilocybin shrooms are much safer, as the active compounds will not cause fatalities directly. Poppers can potentially cause many negative long-term side effects and, if swallowed, can be fatal.
