Whippits is the street term for nitrous oxide whipped cream chargers. Even though there is a brand of whipped cream charger named Whip-It, the word "whippits" usually means any brand of nitrous oxide charger like BestWhip, iSi, Whippets, etc. Whipped cream chargers are small stainless steel canisters that are filled with 8 grams or 16 grams of food-grade nitrous oxide. Nitrous Oxide chargers should not be confused with CO2 chargers, which are commonly used for making soda water and also used with AirSoft and other brands of pellet guns.
Nitrous oxide (N2O) was first used medically in 1844 for a dental tooth extraction. Nitrous oxide is still used today primarily in dentistry as an addition ot other local anesthetics. As an anesthetic, nitrous oxide is usually administered to the patient via a gas inhaler which mixes the nitrous oxide with oxygen allowing the dentist to precisely control the flow of gas.
Nitrous Oxide, like other drugs, poses the potential for abuse when used as a street drug. Dependence of nitrous oxide is not as severe as that of other drugs, such as optiods and narcotics, however chronic abusers often develop strong emotional dependencies which can be highly destructive to their lives.
