Handle PoisonTo safely use a product of Alchemy you must have the level of the Alchemy skill that could produce it.
Throw Gas GrenadeIf you have enough levels then you can throw any gas globes you produce or acquire. Take an orange packet into an otherwise empty hand and throw it as your target, announcing the effect as you do. You start with the name of the gas globe. Thus a Sleep Gas Globe would be thrown with a call of "Sleep Gas Poison." This lets the target know the effect (Sleep) as well as the method it is being delivered (Gas) and the how it is affecting them (Poison) so they can apply appropriate resistances (Resist Sleep, Does Not Breath, or Resist Poison, for examples) or know what effect to take.
