Does “laughing gas” actually make you laugh?

Nitrous Oxide or laughing gas. When you inhale the gas, it displaces the air in your lungs and prevents oxygen from getting to your brain and blood. This deprivation is what causes all the giggles. Some people even experience mild hallucinations.

However, nitrous oxide generates a feeling of euphoria which makes a person want to laugh. N2O triggers the release of dopamine molecules in our body, Dopamine is a type of neurotransmitter. Your body makes it, and your nervous system uses it to send messages between nerve cells. That’s why it’s sometimes called a chemical messenger. Dopamine plays a role in how we feel pleasure. Dopamine is particularly known as being the “happy hormone.” It is responsible for our experiencing happiness.
