Don’t know what poppers are? Take a few moments to check out our blog post, What are Poppers?
The below youtube vid has some great info about PWD Rush:
Marketed by PWD along with a number of other brands such as Hardware, Bolt, Quicksilver, Locker room and the brand new Gold Rush & Super Rush PWD has been churning out highly successful blends for decades.
Seriously, when you take into account the variety of poppers for sale claiming the crown of ‘Best Poppers Brand’ is a pretty big boast.
Is it an accurate claim? In some instances yes, in others no. See, it all boils down to what you consider to be poppers.
Is PWD Rush really ‘poppers’?
PWD Rush is commonly referred to as ‘poppers’ in popular culture. In reality it contains no amyl nitrate, which is the primary ingredient in true poppers. PWD Rush contains isobutyl nitrite which is in the family of alkyl nitrites. PWD Rush is not considered amyl nitrate poppers. You can read more about that at wikipedia here.
To be fair PWD Rush has never been marketed as poppers but as liquid incense or liquid aroma over the years.
PWD Rush goes out of business. Again. And Again. And Again.
PWD Rush and the PWD Brands have had issues over the years. Originally manufactured and distributed in the 1970’s PWD Rush has gone out of business a number of times.
The PWD name itself has taken a beating in the 2000’s with no less than three shutdowns.
In one instance the owner of the PWD Rush Brand and Great Lakes products, Joe Miller, committed suicide after the PWD offices were raided. No in depth explanation was ever provided for this event.
PWD Rush Nail Polish Remover?
Around 2011 PWD Rush was brought back to market and marketed as a nail polish remover. Currently a US patent is held for this purpose. The brand was thought to be on solid footing but another shutdown occurred in June of 2013. This has not been resolved as of the writing of this post.
Hopefully the iconic brand will return to your favorite online retailer or local book store soon.
What the future holds for PWD Rush
In closing, the PWD Rush story has not had an ending written yet and is an ongoing story.
