DOSE:
4 - 9 g oral Nutmeg (ground / crushed)

BODY WEIGHT: 65 kg


The Right Way to Get a Legal High

I have used nutmeg more than 30 times, different doses and settings, with at least a week between each use. There are no noticeable effects from chronic use (5 times each month, 5 months). I have never used nutmeg on an empty stomach, so Im not sure how it influences the delay of onset. I have never used any psychoactive substances during the sessions, other than caffeine in reasonable amounts.

Preparation:
1. fill half a cup with milk and heat it to 40-60C, I have found that the easiest way is to put the cup of milk in another cup filled with hot water (from the hot water dispenser), and changing the water every few minutes.

2. add the freshly grinded (see dosage below) nutmeg to the milk and mix it well for at least a minute then add coffee or chocolate powder to mask the horrible taste. (the active components are [not] hydrophilic thats why I use milk not water. I mix the powder with hot milk for 5-15 minutes to kind of extract the psychoactive molecules and get a slightly faster onset of effects).

3. remove the cup with the milk from the hot water cup or stop heating it, wait for the milk to cool down and mix it well then drink the whole thing (milk and the suspended powder).

Doses:
The doses may vary because not all nutmeg seeds contain the same amount of myristicin and elemicin (the primary psychoactive agents), and the amount of water in the powder also varies and it might interfere with the calculation of doses.

4g - 6g (61mg/kg - 91.5mg/kg):
onset after ~3hr, duration on average 5hr.
effects: cannabis like effects, euphoria, laser focused attention, difficulty maintaining complex thoughts, abstract thinking, weakened mental functioning, dry mouth and eyes, reddish eyes (dose > 4.5g).

6g 7.5g (92mg/kg 114mg/kg):
onset after ~3hr, duration on average 6hr, after effect ~3 - ~15hr after the duration time ends.
effects: delirium, imbalance, red eyes, compulsive snacking, elevated thinking, confusion, sensitivity to light, impaired coordination, memory impairment, time distortion, (+ all of the above).

7.5g 9g (114mg/kg 140mg/kg):
onset after ~3hr, duration on average 10hr, after effect ~5 - ~2 days after the duration time ends.
effects: psychedelic/excited delirium effects, blood shot eyes, lack of emotional responsiveness, extreme drowsiness, music mediated closed eye hallucinations, (+ all of the above).

The after effects include abstract thinking, feeling of general happiness, amazement from trivial stuff, patterns and ideas, mindfulness and empathy.
