There are a few different types of Inhalants that are made of different substances that are used to achieve the same desire. Volatile solvents are made of glue or petrol. Aerosols are cigarette lighters, hair sprays, and air freshener etc. Anesthetics are nitrous oxide (or laughing gas.) Volatile nitrates are amyl nitrate and butyl nitrate. What is the drug made of?
There are a few different ways to take inhalants, therefore they come in different substances. Volatile solvents will usually come in plastic containers, such as those for glues. Aerosols come in metal cylinder containers. Anesthetics come in small metal containers (shorter than aerosols) the same used for soda syphons. Volatile nitrates are gases. What does it look like?
Inhalants are inhaled either through the nose or mouth. Before inhaling they are either sprayed into a plastic bag or poured into a bottle or soaked into a cloth. The price of inhalants varies greatly. They can be purchased as low as $1 (glue) $5 (hairspray, nail polish remover)$20-40 (paint). How much does it cost? Inhalants are sometimes called

The British scientist sir Humphry Davy hosted nitrous oxide parties and introduced the world to “laughing gas” in 1799. In the 1940’s recreational use of solvents occurred. Gasoline also became popular. Abuse of inhalants in the United States increased in the 1950’s. By the 1960’s the practice of solvent sniffing had spread across.

Nitrous oxide causes a rapid head rush and euphoria but they don’t last very long. Volatile Nitrates cause your blood to rush to the brain, flooding it with oxygen. Those are the addictive qualities.
