i made a tea out of fresh whole nutmeg as an erowid link suggested and all it did was make me on the sleepy side for 2 days....does anyone have something good to say about it?

Other than that much nutmeg tastes like Shit, no.

When I was about 14-15yrs old I tried it, with no effect.

Ok, this one is not really good for you. You do not want to ingest that much oil to get high, the levels are toxic I am sure, and the oils which may be fine in a small occasional dose (like in pumpkin pie) are probably destructive on a cellular level in any concentration.

This class of oils are used as the precursors for some psychedelic amphetamines.

With that out of the way, it takes a lot of ground powder to get off, and the high is not worth it... It's grungy, oily, buzzy in an annoying way (I thought) and I felt completely toxified... Clearly the threshold dose and toxic levels are about equal. It takes days to detoxify (poor liver sad.gif )

There are better legal highs

all i can say is blech!!!!! tasts bad, makes you choke doesn't do the trick unless you gorge yourselfe. half the time you'll puke form the taste and forcing the stuff down you before you can ingest it.

When I was younger, we used to recommend nutmeg to people that were irritating. If they were really obnoxious, we'd tell them to smoke it. It seems pretty evil in retrospect, but it illustrates the point. Nutmeg poses the question: Is sobriety that bad man? blink.gif

I heard about nutmeg from a friend, but after reading ALL the trip reports at Erowid, decided it was something I would NOT want to try. It seems to me like a desperate act.
