You think Pepper X[1] is the hottest, most spicy thing in the world? Well, you are wrong. Meet "RTX."[2]

Resiniferatoxin has a score of 16 billion Scoville heat units, making pure resiniferatoxin about 5000 to 10000 times hotter than pure capsaicin.[3][4] Oh, and it is made from the latex sap you get from cutting open a common cactus plant.

Quote.png I have to insist that the next few sentences aren’t hyperbole. On the Scoville Scale of hotness, its active ingredient, resiniferatoxin, clocks in at 16 billion units. That’s 10,000 times hotter than the Carolina reaper, the world’s hottest pepper Quote1.png
