Ever get high..... on Nutmeg?!?!?!?!?!?OOOOOOOOOOO


Recommended Posts

For the record, a bunch of GB's and I tried this a few times when we were just out of HS, so I can confirm, it works. The results were mixed. The biggest complaint, was that you felt dirty, no matter how many showers you took.That, and well, it completely ruined any chance of ever enjoying it again as a spice. :goodposting:

Nutmeg is a commonly used spice in cooking and preparation of certain spice-mixes such as mulling spices. However, nutmeg contains an active psychoactive compound called myristicin, which belongs to the deliriant drug family. When taken in sufficient quantities, nutmeg off a spice rack can produce deliriant effects.Why hasn't the public heard about nutmeg being a drug? Why hasn't there been an uproar from suburban parents demanding that the government do something about their children getting high? Well, the driving reason behind that fact that nutmeg's drug status is largely unknown is the fact that the nutmeg high is not particularly pleasant. Like most deliriants, nutmeg's efficacy at producing a hallucinogenic high is largely in the eye of the beholder and most people consider its effects unpleasant.The reason nutmeg doesn't get eggnog-drinkers high is because one must consume several grams of it in order to feel any psychoactive effects. There is a dosage threshold based on quantity, metabolism, and body weight that causes nutmeg to cease being a spice and enter the realm of being a drug. Like other deliriants, the effects of nutmeg take several hours to peak. Nutmeg is one of the most bizarre psychoactive drugs in that it often takes up to six hours for an individual to even begin feeling minimal effects of the drug. Effects can range anywhere from a mild high or stoned feeling similar to marijuana coupled with alcohol to a full-blown deliriant experience with auditory and visual hallucinations, closed-eye visuals, and shifts in perception. Because of its efficacy to produce a cheap and legal high, nutmeg is most often used by people who are unable to obtain illicit drugs or by prisoners who have access to it in kitchens.The reason nutmeg has not seen widespread use as a drug is because of its unpleasant side-effects. The first side-effect is the horridly bitter taste of nutmeg. In cooking, only small amounts of the spice are used, but to feel its effects as a drug one must consume a significant portion of a container. The taste and texture alone can cause nausea and gagging. One of the most glaring side effects is the dry mouth that accompanies nutmeg use. This dry mouth is much stronger than that caused by cannabis use and can persist for up to two days. Other side effects during the primary experience include a proneness to panic attacks and inability to focus. Also, since myristicin is classified as a deliriant compound, a user may find him or herself in a state of mental confusion or delirium in addition to the high. Finally, one of the most nagging of side-effects of nutmeg when used as a drug is the persistence of symptoms. Depending on dosage, a user can continue to experience a feeling of airy lightness and spaceyness for up to five days after dosing. These persistent effects can take the form of a stupor with a lack of ability to focus on certain tasks or carry on conversations for very long.So why hasn't the government all of a sudden taken nutmeg off the shelves of supermarkets? Why aren't kids getting high off their parents' kitchen spice rack? Well, simply because to most people who have tried the spice as a drug, the side-effects and unpleasant sensations outweigh the psychoactive benefits. Stick to using this brown powder as a spice, not a high.

My brother did this once. He said he got an unplasant high with sleeplessness, no hallucinations, he felt odd for a day or two afterwards, was terribly dehydrated, got wicked diarrhea and had to call out of work. He called it "one of the dumbest things I have ever done." And trust me, that's saying a lot.

I tried it once. I was told that it was supposed to be like trippin on shrooms. And since I thoroughly enjoyed my first shroom trip at a Pink Floyd concert, I was going to give it a try. Didn't feel anything for several hours, and then it hit me. The only way I can explain it is that I felt like a big goof. It made me feel very stupid and brain dead. I felt that way for probably a day and a half. I was actually very worried that I was going to feel that way forever. I wasn't sure if it was going to go away. But alas, thankfully it did. Now I am only marginally stupid.

This is the type of #### that HS kids that can't get their hands on LSD or Mushrooms do.

People who can find the real deal don't need to suffer the horribly unpleasant taste and side effects of swallowing a fist full of a terribly dry spice.

when i was a hippie hitcher, 112 yrs ago, it was not unusual to pair up rather than compete for rides (esp. in sparser western outposts). it always amazed me how often one would encounter the same people over & over. after a yr & a half on the road there was a dozen or so people i could recognize from 1/4 mi away just from their hitchin posture. there was one guy, reeeeally scary mofo who spent a lot of time in stir, who'd buy bottles of nutmeg every time we had the chance to stop in a market. he wore this humongous army trenchcoat with like 97 pockets in it. it seemed each one had a roach in it (never saw him spark a virgin bone - no idea where all the roaches came from). his modus operandi was to make nutmeg tea in his messkit b4 sleepin & after wakin and then huff the roaches throughout the day to keep his monster at bay. it gave him the scariest stare, but u never wanted to see that stare go away, cuz then he very badly wanted to #@&% or #@&%up someone & it didnt matter if it was a 7/11 cashier, a roadkill polecat or you. anyways, he was pretty greedy with his spice stash, but he offered me his "tea" a coupla times. it's a whole nuther buzz with the occasional toke than it is straight up (though i dont know why you'd do one if u had the other), but this guy needed to be high every waking moment & it worked for him. i used to tell this story to my son when he was little....

Tried this once in high school, I think we emptied a couple small spice jar things into a pot of boiling water and drank the "tea". Tasted like ###. I don't remember it having much of an effect, it's possible we didn't take enough.

It took me a while to enjoy the taste of nutmeg again.

I tried this in college, after reading about it in (I think) the Autobiography of Malcom X. The nutmeg was disgusting. Nothing happened. :mellow:

You didn't eat enough.I just remembered, we ate it with applesauce. Literally poured the whole McCormick container into a bowl, add a little applesauce, and consume.:hurl:

You started the thread, not me chief. What kind of insight were you looking for in here? :no:
