30 g oral Nutmeg (ground / crushed)
I was reading and noticed all the stuff about Nutmeg and decided, what the hell, I'll give it a whirl. So I go to a store around the area and pick up some fresh ground nutmeg and begin the awful chore of eating it. The taste isn't really the big issue when trying to eat it, but rather trying to force fairly unsolvable powder down my throat. Anyway, shortly after I managed to eat about 30ish grams (way more than I probably should have taken) my friend informs me of some medical health website that says excessive nutmeg can be fatal. Apparently over 1 teaspoon is too much and can cause all sorts of problems. So by then I'm getting worried and thinking about inducing vomiting and going to buy some real drugs. The site says the bad effects (circulation stoppage, death, some other random stuff) occur within 6 hours. By this time it's like 1am, so I decide to stay up 6 hours and see what happens. After a very uneventful 6 hours, it's now 7am and I'm incredibly tired and not even buzzing from the nutmeg so I decide to go to sleep.

The next day I wake up and I feel pretty disoriented, but I shrug it off to just the feeling of waking up suddenly. I stand up and feel incredibly dizzy, but I manage to make it into the bathroom where I turn on the shower and hop in. Then it hit me, like a really strong headrush, my vision turns color staticky. I couldn't move, couldn't see, and I felt stupid high. It's difficult to explain really, but it was very overwhelming. I felt totally out of control of my body.

Eventually my vision came back and I felt like I was going to throw up, so I finished my shower quickly and got out. I heaved a few times into the nearby toilet but nothing was produced. By this time the whole room was spinning crazily and I was getting mild visual trails

on pretty much anything when I moved my head, similar to ecstasy. I drank a few glasses of water and headed back to my bed.

For the rest of the day I just laid there and watched tv. I was unable to move much without feeling extremely drained and tired, so I just laid in the bed fading in and out of a really trippy state for the entire day. After resting all day, I eventually went to bed and then slept for about 14 hours. The next day I felt incredibly stoned, but the heavy tripping was gone and I was able to function semi-normally again. This lasted for about half of the day, and faded off towards night time.

Overall it was a pretty crazy experience, I think if I try it again in the future, I'll measure proper amounts and I won't begin so late at night.
