Nutmeg

1 year, 5 months ago

I drank 5 tablespoons of nutmeg in a large cup of coffee about 2 hours ago. It was the most discussing thing i have ever eaten!! Right now I’m string to feel a little sweaty and clammy like my body is going through waves of warm and cold. I hear that in too large of doses nutmeg can be extremely unpleasant. Has anyone else experienced a nutmeg high?

@Thewakinglife, no. I have heard nothing but terrible things about it.

@Thewakinglife, Well from what I’ve read it takes like 8 hours for the desirable effects to start, and can last over a day. So I’d say cancel any plans because you have a long day ahead. lol

Let us know how it goes, I’ve only heard bits and bobs about it (not all positive, but not all negative)

Never even considered doing it because I’ve heard nothing but bad things.

Same here. Heard nothing but bad. Also, for some reason I feel that if I were to ever get high on nutmeg, I’d never live it down.

@Thewakinglife, Ive never experienced a large dose of nutmeg, but I do know MJ is the magic ‘cure all’, for these kinds of psychedelics. If you start to feel any undesired effects, nausea, negativity.. smoke a bit and it will put you on track to get the most of your journey.

The most important thing is to follow the mao diet to bring out the desired effects.

http://www.erowid.org/chemicals/maois/maois_info2.shtml

This guide is mainly for prescription maoi’s, which is very dangerous to combine these foods with. Seratonin syndrome is not fun, but you technically don’t need to worry with nutmeg.

Nutmeg and most other natural mild mao’s in the plant kingdom aren’t as dangerous but still interact, you could eat one the dangerous foods and it wont kill you, no need to worry, but its better to avoid them. Worst you’ll experience is a headache that will pass as you metabolize.

Nutmeg’s mild mao activity is cause for part of its psychoactivity, this also means it will interact with almost everything that you put into your body. I suggest eating a little bit throughout the journey, make sure its food that will interact positively, raw fruits and veg for example.

@Thewakinglife, Most people have bad experience with nutmeg because they are bored, wanna get high, and are uninformed about these kinds of plants. If you are informed, you have nothing to worry about. Most importantly, get stoked.
Enjoy.

Pretty dumb way to get loaded. I’m sure if you take too much of any food spice you will feel something. Don’t confuse getting high with feeling sick.

@Thewakinglife, Keep us posted! I’ve heard the experience is like that stupid cough syrup high– intense nausea followed by uncontrollable barfing with unpleasant auditory hallucinations accompanied by intense disassociation rather than the normal ‘self-enlightening’ trip of psychedelics.
It may make you crazy…you nutcase…ha, ha, ha…lamezo bye

Nutmeg, that piquant brown spice you sprinkle on egg nog, is chock full o’ the organic compound myristicin. Eating four to eight teaspoons of ground nutmeg causes mild hallucinations, warmth in the limbs …

The Downside
… dizziness, nausea, cottonmouth, paranoia, difficulty urinating and, the coup de grace, a hangover that feels like God taking a dump on your soul.

Some users compare the nutmeg “high” to a hellish case of the flu. To make things worse, nutmeg consumption is easily the most inconvenient way to get high–its effects kick in five to six hours after ingestion. That’s like having to drink a six-pack at lunch in anticipation of happy hour.

Fun Fact
For those of you who who want to push your luck with nutmeg, don’t worry. The FDA reportedly has no plans to raid your spice rack. Probably because they’re assuming nobody is dumb enough to give it a go. Once you’ve crossed a certain threshold of stupidity where do you stop? You’re going to have to start cracking down on spinning around in circles really fast and smelling your own burrito farts.

Ok i have some updates for anyone interested. At around 3 o’clock i went to a friends house. I noticed that i had a slight difficulty paying attention to conversations and my head started to feel cloudy and tired. I had periods of feeling warm and then clammy and my cheeks looked flushed. I was still pretty nauseous so i ate some pizza which helped a little. By 4:15 i started to feel a change in my state of mind similar to marijuana without the euphoria and also not as strong. My pupils were moderately dilated and i noticed a slight body high. At 5 o’clock i at a small meal and we met up with some more people to smoke some weed. At this point i had occasional blurred vision and sensitivity to light colors were slightly more vivid and i had increased mental confusion and hazzynes. At 5:30 i smoked some weed and and drank a few beers. I felt pretty good except i had the worst dry mouth of my life!!! To the point that water didn’t even help! I felt the effects of the nutmeg mixed well with weed and i noticed that the blurred vision increased along with weird depth perception and tunnel vision with some auditory halucinations and a strong sense of my inner voice. At one point in the night i thought a radio comercial was my subconcious talking to me haha. vissually i saw some wavyness and colors with my eyes closed and i saw some trails when things moved. Also I had uncontrollable twitches and leg kicks which no one else seemed to notice or care about because they were all pretty stoned. I also felt a little dizzy and had trouble with fine motor. At around 10 i finnaly came down from the weed and we walked home to my house. Everyone else was sober but i was messed up. I had a pounding headache and felt nautilus dizzy and disoriented. My thoughts ranged from chaotic to mellow to almost nothing at all. I was zoned out. my friends noticed i wasn’t my usual self but i just said i felt tired and i had a headache. When i got home i threw up and i felt a little better. I played video games and kind of just melted into my couch. I went to sleep at 2:30 and i wasn’t feeling so great but quickly fell into the deepest sleep of my life. In the morning i still felt funny but i could still function i took a couple advil and went on with my day. Over all it wasn’t a terrible experience but I probably won’t try this again

@Thewakinglife, That sounds fuuuun ..
this reminds me once i was at the bus stop and i guess we were talking about weed experiences or something cause the guy was like “okay, if i tell you this prooomise me you wont try it” so i was like “okay” .. he said once he took some advil pm … and a couple hours later smoked some weed .. he figured they mixed because he was seeing rainbow colored lights of everything and heard some voices .. man i wanted to try this so bad but i never have.

@motorik, “Don’t confuse getting high with feeling sick.” Yes. Couldn’t agree more with your assessment of using nutmeg.

Takes about 8 hours to work.
long, wave after wave of a strong weed like high.
about 1 gram to every 10 pounds or so.
you CAN overdose, but we’re talking upwards of 50-60 grams
Definitely need to plan ahead so that you will not be tasked on anything important.
makes sleep AMAZING
dry mouth from hell
can last from 12-40 hours……dosage dependent of course
a partner in crime(not really) could be fun
Legal
if taken in small doses over a period, a constant controlled state of being is possible
good source of fiber hehehee

In closing, not what many may call particularly enjoyable but it IS an experience
read erowid, that’s a good review of this.
It’s even on the Main Page, so you know its legit.

Nutmeg can be a powerful psychedelic. But you need to eat whole cloves. You won’t get a hangover as long as you constantly drink water and stay in a cool place. If you want full color hallucinations, I recommend about 5-8 whole cloves. But they will be the worst tasting thing you will ever eat. Guaranteed.

@chodebalm, Hey, if you’re going to plagiarize from cracked, choose an article that’s telling the truth. The high isn’t unpleasant in the slightest (at least for me) as long as you keep drinking water, it’s nothing like the flu. Plus it’s not stupid to go searching for new experiences as long as they won’t kill you. Too many people just sit at home all day and browse the internet.
