An Enjoyable Buzz
Citation:   Mossy Log. "An Enjoyable Buzz: An Experience with Nutmeg (exp101135)". Mar 1, 2023.

1 Tbsp oral Nutmeg (powder / crystals)
I had tried nutmeg before a few times, though it had never worked. This time I decided to try fresh whole nutmegs, which I grated into a small bowl. I then measured out 1 tablespoon of the powder and poured myself a glass of water. I managed to choke the nutmeg down, taking sips of water to help me rid my mouth of the foul aftertaste. I then measured out another half a tablespoon, and using the same method described before I managed to get that down too. I had taken the nutmeg at 8:30am and now all I had to do was wait.

12:30pm Four hours after I had taken the nutmeg, I was sitting at my computer and noticed that things seemed slightly funnier to me. Whether this was placebo or not, I don't know.

1:30pm Five hours after, and the effects seem to be getting stronger, and I felt a buzz quite like that of a cigarette, though not as strong.

4:30pm Eight hours after taking the nutmeg, I am still feeling the same buzz/high. My heart rate is raised to around 100 bpm. My usual resting heart rate is about 45-50 bpm. I have been getting a dry mouth and have been having glasses of water every half an hour or so. I am also extremely hungry, and I am constantly raiding my kitchen for a bite to eat.

6:30pm Ten hours after taking the nutmeg, and I have been dropping things quite frequently, and having other clumsy accidents, spilling water, bumping into door frames etc. I am still feeling all the effects mentioned before, and I don't feel that they have gotten much stronger.

10:30pm Fourteen hours after taking the nutmeg. I am still feeling the effects mentioned before, and a forgetfulness that can be easily overcome, I just have to stop and think a little about what I was doing.

12:30am Sixteen hours after taking the nutmeg. I hopped into bed and surfed the internet for a while, then put quiet music on and fall asleep soon after.

I woke up the next morning, and did not feel any hangover or afterglow. During the experience I did not feel any nausea, nor did I vomit. I had no hallucinations, auditory or visual. I was not constipated. I was in a good mood before taking the nutmeg and continued to be throughout the whole day.
