    Have any of you tried nutmeg??

    A few weeks ago I read that myristicin, from Nutmeg was a psychoactive, so, I ate four nuts at 4:30pm. For the first four hours I just got a little sweaty and felt wierd, but nothing annormal, suddenly, at 8:45pm or so, I started seeing things in an unreal way, I felt like being extremely stoned. A lot of ideas and thoughts moved through my mind. At 9:30pm I looked in the mirror and I notices my eyes were extremely red, nothing like they had been before, my mouth was very dry and I felt realy crazy, my head and parts of the body moved without me wanting to, I felt sudden chills out of nowere and had odd closed-eyed light visuals. Around 12:30 y felt terribly confused and very, very, very stoned. My stomach hurt and I had terrible nausea, I wanted it all to end, but I couldn't, the effects were controlling me, I couldn't do anything, so, I tried to sleep, but I couldn't... discomforting thoughts and convultions didn't let me sleep... I saw my thoughts pass by and I couldn't catch them. I managed to sleep around 2:00am. The next mornig I woke up at 9:00am and effects were still very intense, I wanted to die, I felt terrible, Everything was aufful and my eyes were still very red. That same day, around 7:00pm I felt suicidal, effects didn't go away and I thought to myselft they were never going to go away, but I managed to sleep and the day after I woke up feeling better. I felt that I hadn't done what I did the day before, It was a wierd confusing sensation.

    My conclusion is that Nutmeg should not be used as psychoactive. The trip isn't worth the side effects.

    This shit is really bad for you, plus ive never found the trip worthwhile. mostly just extreme sedation that lasts way too f**king long. Kinda like being really stoned minus the pleasant mental buzz. Theres some chemical in nutmeg thats a carcinogen,not reallyeffective when used as a seasoning, butrather in high doses (which you need to get any effects). My suggestion is dont waste your time.

    i actually tried this in college.


    First off the stuff is nasty, I was nauseous for about 12 hours after ingesting.


    I felt drunk about 1-2 hours afterwards, and nauseous.


    The next morning I awoke and felt sort of stoned, and had some slight hallucinations, trails etc... and i was still nauseous.


    This is where it got freaky. I went to take a shower and was in the middle of showering when I went completely blind! My vision quickly faded out, I turned the shower off and pawed my way to the bench in the shower room in my dor, (thank god nobody else was in there) and sat on the bench. After a minute or so my vision faded back in. This was probaly one of the scariest moments of my life, i swear for a minute i thought i was blind for life.


    The rest of the day i felt like s**t, my friends said i was green, and they still bring up and laugh about my blindness story...


    so, don't do, try to find some shrooms!

    <<Theres some chemical in nutmeg thats a carcinogen>>


    Safrole is thought to be a carcinogen, however not proven to be. On the other hand it is a comfirmed hepotoxin.


    Nutmeg is not a recreational drug and even most see it's spiritual or psychnautic uses limited.

    Here's what I found on nutmeg. You can take 5 to 20 grams of fresh ground nutmeg. Some of the effects are: Nausea for about 1 hour, vomitting, diarrhea in some cases. It takes about 1 to 5 hours to work. Then expect dry mouth, flushing, blood shot eyes, dilated pupils. Heavy sedation, slurred speech, hallucinations followed by long deep, deepsleep.

    I am not that negative about nutmeg I have tried low doses of oil extraction a couple of times. The anti-depressant effect I see also. I think its due to the natural endorphin precuros that nutmeg contains. Probably the induced sleep also comes from this. I wouldnt be surpriced if it has a

    weak antikolignerg effect also. Some of the dreams seems to suggest this.



    I made one extraction in heptane and one in acetone, thought I would try to take a closer look at them. But I never seems to have the time.



    Does hepo in hepotoxic in english point to the liver or the red blood cells?

    Nutmeg is nasty crap. I remeber jonesing bad one day and it seemed the whole city was dry. So i measured out about 20 grams of it, and tried to scarf it. It was soooo bad and i knew there was no way of eating it by itself, so i tried mixing a bit with orage juice (lol what a dumb move). I was dry heaving for a good 5 minutes straight after that. So i mashed it into some peanut butter and chowed down. I waited 2 hours for something to happen (I was kinda on a full stomach) and then gave up on it. But another hour later I was watching TV and all of a sudden I felt this mellow weed-type buzz come on. It lasted about 10 minutes and that was that. DEFINITELY NOT WORTH ANY TROUBLE!!!

    It has been said that eating a certain amount of nutmeg would hallunicanate you and shit. I've read a lots of reviews about nutmeg and it seemed nutmeg is quite a good alternative choice of hallunicagon (well.. sort of)


    I have tried eating nutmeg myself, i had about 4 whole nutmeg and guess what, nothing happened. The stuff tasted like shit and left a really nasty after taste in my throat for f**king hours. Then I had a really bad headache and blanked out for hours. That's all I had. I waited patiently but nothing really happened. So i just had a joint instead.


    My friend had about 5 grams of grinded nutmeg and she told me she felt dizzy and shit. but she is kind of sensitive to everything.

    your reaction is pretty typical actually. It IS true that nutmeg will get you high when taken in sufficient ammounts, it's just not a high you'll probably enjoy (some people do enjoy some freaky shit), nor one I personally would ever want to experience again. There are plenty of better "legal" highs out there, trust me.

    Yea,yesterday morningI tried this for the first time, not expecting much but figured i'd try something new while I have a few days off other than the usual dxm. I took 11 whole nutmegs ground them up and used different methods of eating it, all suck of course. Over about a course of 45 minutes I ate all of it finishing at about 12:00 am. Right after ingesting I went out and smoked a bowl, then I decided to go to sleep seeing the effects take a while to kick in. I went to sleep high at about 12:30Woke about 7:00 with a big head ache, lot of dizziness, and like my high never went away. I was "stoned" but it was pretty lame, I couldnt even stand up without feeling nausueasanda major head rush that blurred my vision completely and wouldnt go away until i layed back down. I spent most of the high lying down. Never threw up and i ingested about 20-25g nutmeg, but the cotton mouth's a bitch.Overall it made me feel like shit, it isnt worth it I'll stick with dxm.

    I've done nutmeg, i ate an entire bottle of ground nutmeg, got high, i did hallucinate and stuff too, but the next day i felt like complete shit.I was at school and i had to take tests, i flunked em, gah it was terrible. Nutmeg only worked for me one time, all the other times I tried it all I got was a headache.

    Overall, it wasn't really a high that i enjoyed.

    nutmeg is psychoactive in large doses but getting those doses down is hard because it tastes terrible. And the high is comparable to getting kicked in the head... no pleasent effects that i could find.. just this really stupid impaired feeling.

    An old thread but i thought I would post my experience here.


    It was summer time and my parents were out of town for three days. I was reading on the internet about how you can get high off Nutmeg, so I went to the store and box a package. I followed some recipe off the web and proceeded to boil it and make a tea. I drank the tea at about 7:00pm, at around 11:00pm i started to feel really happy and everything seemed funny. This lasted until I went to bed a few hours later. When I woke up the next day I felt really drunk, I wasnt stumbling around or anything but myvision was all messed up and I couldnt think straight. So i went outside, mowed the lawn, weedeated and trimmed the hedges, this took roughly 8 hours (we have a huge yard to mow) and i still had the exact same effects. Now this might sound like fun but being drunk for hours on end gets old, expecially when I woke up the next day feeling the same way. I did nothing but lay around all that day until finally late that night it went away and left a bad headache. And that 2nd night of sleep I think i slept something like 15 hours and i was still tired the next day.


    So if you are looking for a cheap legal high look elsewhere, the effects are blah and you will end up wasting 2 or 3 days.

    I must admit, I have tried this myself in my younger days. The taste is pretty bad and it just made me kinda edgy and shitty. I would not recommend it for anyone.

    Okay, that's Nutmeg for you!

    Now, who's up for smoking some dried mango
    peels?

    Day 1 preparation:

    18 grams of fresh, whole nutmeg pods were crushed and then ground to a
    fine powder in an old coffee grinder. At 6:30 AM, the powder was
    injested using the 'yogurt method'. The 'yogurt method' consists of
    mixing the powder with a sufficient amount of yogurt. The amount of
    yogurt is sufficient when you can take a spoonful of this mixture into
    your mouth and it slides over the back of your tongue and down your
    gullet without tasting the nutmeg. It is critical to not allow this
    concoction to touch the sides of your tongue. Think slide and swallow</span>. NOTE: For 18 grams of nutmeg, two 6 ounce cups of strawberry yogurt were used.



    Day 1 effects:

    No nausea. Effects start within 2 hours. Feels good. Very stonish.
    Nothing to do. Entire Mpeg collection on shuffle. Hitting the
    paranormal and conspiracy sites on the web. This is too much! One
    strong and compelling realization after another. Like weed and strong
    coffee in the morning. Damn, understanding the whole UFO phenomena now.
    Downloading some porn for an extra kick. Very erotic now. Several hours
    and climaxes later I'm still aroused. Paranoid though. Can't go out
    anywhere like this. My God! Gripped by spasms of excruciating
    self-consciousness. Reliving my past as a series of pointless blunders.
    The face I've presented to the world has been nothing but a pathetic
    facade. Feeling bad now. But wait, this is exactly why I trip! To see
    myself in different ways, to put it all in perspective. That changes
    everything. Feeling good again. Hours later I'm still stoned. Football
    games were great! Around 11:00 PM I crash.



    Day 2 effects:

    Tired and groggy. Too lazy to even brew coffee. Spaced and still having
    erotic thoughts. Went to bed early after sleeping most of the day.



    Day 3 effects:

    Still a zombie. This wasn't supposed to last until Monday. Lucky I have the day off. Can barely get off the couch.



    Day 4 effects:

    Still a bit weirded out. Focusing on work helps.



    Conclusion:

    The effects of nutmeg are underrated. Day 1 was awesome. Lots of
    "cosmic" insight. Music fantastic. Erotic thoughts and sensations. Even
    munchies. Just a great all day stone! The downside is the long come
    down. Three days is too much for any drug. Overall, I'm not sure it's
    really worth it. But anyone serious about ethno's has to try this at
    least once.
