Hello, a popper is when you take a cut of tobacco and put it into a small popper shaft that is basically a bowl for poppers. You then dip your popper in a few stomps of weed throw it in a bong and pull it all at once. It makes huge smoke clouds and get you high very quickly requiring a smaller amount of weed. When once you hooked to it, it becomes rather addition and will be smoking everyday and it is also expensive as well. Some of them who smoke poppers they will be perfectly high and relaxed for a whole day with only 2 grams. It also takes motivation out of you, because you can't smoke cigarettes. In Ontario many people are addicted to poppers. Some of them they smoke 15-30 poppers a day. Some had collapsed lung, some coughed blood and it could also cause heart problems. Poppers are relatively new; no health concerns are researched or documented, although unfiltered tobacco has been smoked in pipes and water pipes (bongs) for centuries. If the user is not a tobacco smoker, there is usually an immense head rush that follows. It can range from being slightly dizzy to causing an equilibrium imbalance, but only lasts a few minutes. Regarding whether poppers are worse than cigarettes, it is only those who have used those sniffs should decide which is better on a long run and also from the health point of view. I would suggest any form of tobacco usage whether a small amount or large can have tremendous effect on your lungs over a long time. It is advisable to reduce the smoking as much as possible. Hope this helps. Thank you.
