Obsidian Ammonia Hype Dust Smelling Salts (Sniffing Salts)

 Hype Dust™ has been meticulously created to imitate the power and consistency of the popular ampule-style smelling salts.  Every bottle is made in small batches to ensure quality and that it is 100% ANHYDROUS with NO WATER REQUIRED. EVER!

Obsidian combining science + violence! Historically, smelling salts were used on people who were feeling faint or had fainted.  Smelling salts are frequently used to restore consciousness and mental alertness in athletes (especially boxers) who have been disoriented or knocked unconscious. Smelling salts are currently prohibited in most boxing matches, yet they are not dangerous.

How do they work? Smelling salts emit ammonia (NH3) gas, which stimulates an inhalation reflex (a quicker contraction of the muscles that govern breathing) by irritating the mucous membranes of the nose and lungs.

What is Ammonia? Excessive parasympathetic and vagal activity can cause fainting by slowing the heart and decreasing brain perfusion. To counteract these vagal parasympathetic actions and hence reverse the faint, the sympathetic irritant effect is used. Get the kick you’ve been searching for with Obsidians Hype Dust, know you’re getting quality with each hit thanks to small batch runs!

  • Operating Temperatures:  The potency of Hype Dust™ will be affected by cold temperatures.  This is an unavoidable characteristic of the materials used and is common among non-liquid smelling salt. Optimal performance can be obtained at room temperature (20°C/73°F)
  • Troubleshooting: If your bottle has lost potency you may be able to squeeze some more life out of it by warming it up to reactivate the production of ammonia.   You can gently warm your bottle in hot water (90-100 C) for a few minutes, or toss it in the microwave on high for 8-10 seconds.  Your mileage may vary.
