Tip of the Iceberg
Citation:   A Distant Light. "Tip of the Iceberg: An Experience with Nutmeg (exp24335)". Apr 16, 2006.

T+ 0:00
10 g oral Nutmeg (ground / crushed)
  T+ 0:25 15 g oral Nutmeg (ground / crushed)

First of all, I weight about 160 lbs, and I have tried nutmeg twice before with no results other than a mild buzz. Those dosages were approximately 1 (10g) TBSP and 1.5 (15g) TBSP respectively. This would follow the standard 1 gram/10 lbs body weight, yet I felt next to nothing. Beacuse I felt no major effects, I decided I was taking too little and would up the dosage significantly for this attempt. Also, my source of nutmeg is from my work. We get it from a distributor so it's pretty high quality and doesn't sit on the shelf long, though it IS a ground/grated form of the nut. I took this one afternoon at my house when I thought I wouldn't be disturbed. I wasn't expecting too much. Anyhow, they say the third time's a charm, right?


Each entry was written at the time stated, with one exception explained later. This is a real-time time-line of my first real nutmeg experience. Sorry that it's so short. I left the experience unedited except for a few fixed typos and things in [brackets] added for clarity or more detail.


T+0:00 - 1 (10g) TBSP Nutmeg in PB&J sandwich (awful)

T+0:20 - I feel some slight psychosomatic (or so I think) effects, including a light daze or fog, kind of like being very tired, but without the need to

[physically] sleep. [No heavy eyelids or any of that.]

T+0:25 - 1.5 (15g) TBSP Nutemeg in 8 oz boiling water & 2 TBSP Honey & 1 TBSP Butter (tastes less like shit, but still horrible)

T+0:40 - a little nausea, by the way. I hate the taste of nutmeg. I never [want] to taste it again, but everytime I burp I taste the shit.

T+1:55 - I'm kinda nauseous and I keep burping, and it tastes bad, so I'm going to go make some green tea. Peace

T+2:05 - I think it's kicking in. My bugs bunney pez dispenser looks cool, and I started laughing at this pig with wings I have. And yes, it IS real. [It's a plastic toy I got for easter.] I made the tea, but it's still too hot to drink.

T+3:20 - I'm kinda stoned off of this stuff. It's a wierd feeling. It's not strong enough though. [a few minutes elapse] Yeah, actually I'm kind of fucked up right now. I have some really bad cotton mouth though. [This cotton mouth lasted for hours.] I'll get some more water... or green tea :) Got some water, but man my eyes are red as hell. Jesus.

T+4:53 - Wow. I wasn't expecting it to be this powerful. I'm not hallucinating, but I feel damn good. [Winamp music] Visualizations look cool as hell.

T+5:50 - Still high off this stuff. Cool. I feel stoned, but with more clarity. This is a very nice drug. Too bad it tastes so [bad].

T+6+06 - Even higher than before. I have been feeling effects for four hours. holy shit. And oh yeah, I just ate dinner steak, juicy and delicious. unbelievable. The shrimp were awesome. Food is unbelievable on this stuff. My tactual [that is, tactile] senses have increased so much. Well, two out of three. Touch is still not that elevated, but taste and smell are.

T+7:20 - STILL high. Maybe higher than before, maybe the same. Holy shit... I don't remember typing that. My eyes are so red I could land a plane with them.

T+8:00 - Still quite high, accelleration [motion] sensations when I close my eyes. I'm going get some sleep, cause I'm getting a little tired off of this. Later.

T+16:00 - (STILL HIGH)

T+26:00 - finally about baseline.


for the second-to-last entry I wrote a small comment from memory to encapsulate my feelings. I was at school from T+18:00 to T+25:00. Also, I woke sometime around 3:00am (T+13:00) and I beleive I was in a completely different reality, but I don't remember it very well because I fell back asleep right away. This was the third time I had taken nutmeg... I worked my way up to the dosage that gave me real effects.

Overall I'd give Nutmeg the approval, but it's something I want to set aside time for, so I can relax and enjoy the experience. At least when I woke up I was still too messed up to feel that tired. Later on I slept like a rock though. I was kind of dissapointed with the lack of elightenment from this experience, so I plan to try nutmeg again in a higher dosage and in a natural, outside setting. I'm looking to achieve a more spiritual experience and learn more about *everything*
