Baking soda

An improvised gas grenade made using baking soda

A gas grenade is a hand-held projectile weapon used for incapacitating an enemy. When activated and thrown, the gas grenade releases a gas of some kind into the area. A gas grenade can be non-lethal or very lethal, depending on the gas it releases, and on the physiology of the target. A gas grenade differs from a smoke grenade in that the former is meant to incapacitate while the latter is intended to reduce visibility.

In 2268, Leonard McCoy used a container of baking soda as a component of a non-lethal gas grenade in an attempt to escape the Melkotian illusion. (TOS: "Spectre of the Gun")
