Hey dude. Ha good onya lol
I manufacture aerosols for a living and it includes Pepperspray/OC.
What you experienced was a mixture of Oleo Resin, water and a chemical called Neo-dole.
The Oleo Resin is 6.5% capsicum (I cant remember off hand what the species/type is).
The pan really sets in once it has been Atomised and inhaled so not to be a nobber or anything but what you felt is about 100 times milder than if you
were to say, spray directly into your mouth.
I bet your finger was burning hot for a while too.
When I make it, I am fully suited up, gloves, booties and masks and I still experience some effects of it.( runny nose, sneezing, itchy/burning
I have also had a VERY large canister EXPLODE about 10inchesaway from my face and that was excruiciating!
It basically made me blind for 10-15mins, couldn't breath for at least 2-5 mins, raged enough to chip bone in knuckles and elbows, and vomited
Like I said it is most usefull once Atomised and im supprised you didn't get the snezzes and watery eyes after spraying it on your finger.
