What is Nitrous Oxide?
Nitrous oxide otherwise known as whipped cream chargers, laughing gas or NOS is a Chemical Compound, an oxide of nitrogen with the formula N2O. When kept at room temperature it is a colorless gas with a slightly metallic scent. Nitrous Oxide is widely used in modern medical practice. For example as an anesthetic at the dentist or as an anesthetic during operations.
Nitrous Oxide is very popular because it is a non-addictive chemical that is legally available in the Netherlands. Whipped cream cartridges contain N2O which functions as a propellant. This propellant consists of nitrogen and oxygen. Our atmosphere usually consists of these two molecules but with Nitrous Oxide, there is much more nitrogen and this is what causes it to expel from the cartridge with such force. The higher content of nitrogen is known to give a feeling of euphoria, so for parties, these are a must-have!
Chemical Properties of Nitrous Oxide
The pharmacological mechanism action of Nitrous Oxide is still not fully understood. However, it has been shown to directly modulate a range of ligand-gated ion channels, which likely plays a major role in its effects.
While affecting many different ion channels, its anesthetic, hallucinogenic and euphoriant effects are mostly caused by the fact its inhibition of the NMDA receptor-mediated currents, therefore you feel effects like euphoria. As well as its effects on the ion channels, laughing gas may act to imitate nitric oxide in the central nervous system, this can explain why nitrous oxide has similar sedating and antianxiety effects.
