Nangs are small plastic gas-filled cans used to release nitrous oxide during parties. Nitrous oxide is a popular party drug, which people purchase from vendors on the street or in clubs, for the effects it produces. Nitrous oxide can be dangerous, however, if improperly used. Partygoers often purchase multiple canisters of nitrous oxide to inhale the nitrous oxide in the canisters together.
Unfortunately, using recreational drugs like cocaine or heroin can have harmful side effects. Nitrous oxide can also cause coughing, watering of the eyes and sometimes even heart attacks or deaths if these agents are inhaled. For this reason, many people who use powdered Nitrous Gas or whipped cream chargers to release nitrous oxide have found themselves in rehabilitation centers or doctors’ offices.
Nangs are sold over the counter at any store selling medical products. While it’s not illegal to sell Nangs under these circumstances, some people may not be aware that they are not permitted to use inhalation techniques while playing “smoke club”. Ingesting or inhaling in ways not considered acceptable while playing “smoke club” may also result in serious consequences.
Nangs come in many different colors and flavors, but most people simply prefer to “smoke” them through a canister or wad of whipped cream. The effects of inhaled Nangs do not leave the user with euphoria or a heightened sense of sexual attraction. Nangs actually hinder the user’s ability to think rationally. Smokers often attempt to quit by using Nangs as an excuse. After all, Nangs do not cause the same things that cigarettes do, such as lung cancer or addiction.
There are many Nang users who claim that they feel a tingling sensation in their fingers when they inhale them. Nangs users often claim that the feeling of numbness or tingling, results from the releasing of a chemical known as dopamine. Dopamine is responsible for sending out signals to the brain that provide pleasure. However, when taking Nangs, the user receives a sensation that is similar to the sensation received from sucking on a piece of sugarless gum or biting off a piece of peppermint candy. Because Nangs have been linked to the onset of Parkinson’s disease, many who use them as a smoking cessation product advise smokers to quit using Nangs and substitute them with willpower and their willpower alone.
Although Nangs do cause the release of dopamine, the actual chemical in them, N-HEX, is not the same chemical that is found in cigarettes. N-HEX is an amino acid that is produced when l-glutamate, N-acetyl-l-carnitine, and N-acetylneuramic acid are metabolized into N-HEX. The actual chemical in cigarettes, namely, nicotine, is also a l-phenyl-2-enine, and is also a l-carnitine-related amino acid. However, because Nangs do not contain l-phenyl-2-enine, they cannot function in the same way as cigarettes do. Instead of causing dopamine release, Nangs seem to work by causing the release of acetylcholine, which is responsible for bringing on a “high,” as one would experience after smoking a joint cigarette.
Acetylcholine is also released in the presence of an excess of oxygen. This is why smokers who are trying to quit will sometimes take up smoking again just before reaching their goal. The reason for this is that smokers who inhale Nangs will receive more oxygen to their lungs due to their laughing gas high than they would if they smoked a traditional cigarette. The problem with Nangs is that, like with many other laughing gas products, the pure Nang never reaches its intended destination, the brain. Instead, Nangs are expelled from the body via the nose and mouth, causing a very nasty aftertaste.
Inhalation of Nangs is very similar to smoking; therefore, it is important to avoid them at all costs. However, there are certain Nangs that are considered safer, such as Nangtime Whips and Nangs Squares. Nangs in general are highly controversial and Nangtime Whips in particular can be extremely harmful to those who inhale them. If you’re looking to purchase Nangs, make sure to buy them from a reputable vendor, as these types of products have been known to cause serious problems for some users.
