||(ground / crushed)
Recently, I have been interested in finding legal highs. I found quite a bit of information off the internet, including this site. As I looked at the list, nutmeg struck my fancy. I thought, 'I can get high on NUTMEG??' I have tried it a few times, and they all had their ups and downs. I thought I'd share my most recent experience.
I went down to the grocery store and bought an ounce of ground nutmeg (expensive stuff! not exactly something I'd buy very often). Since I know how crappy this stuff tastes, I took the liberty of putting the nutmeg powder into gelcaps. The gelcaps were not empty, so I emptied out the stuff that was in it, and packed the nutmeg in there real tight. It equaled out to about 22 capsules or so. I promptly swallowed them all accompanied by a big glass of water. Cool! Now all I had to do was wait. About an hour later I ate dinner. Just as I finished, the effects came on quickly. It was uncomfortable... pretty shitty feeling. It felt as if little bugs were crawling under my skin. No matter what I did, I could not get comfortable. I was irritible and just decided to lay down for a while. I did feel slight nausea, as if my body was telling me it does not approve of this crap I took.
This uncomfortable and irritating feeling lasted for about 2 hours, and I wish it would just end! I had called a friend over and was seriously thinking of calling the night off and telling him to go home. But the tension slowly passed, and it felt as if I was not high any more. But one thing, I had the taste of nutmeg in my mouth! I don't know how this is possible, but everything I ate tasted like nutmeg. I ate some cookies, and the taste was STILL there. Finally, after having some ice cream, the taste went away. My friend and I watched and episode of SNL later that night (about 2 hours later). I was laughing my head off like never before! I know SNL is funny, but damn, I couldn't stop laughing! This was the feeling I was looking for. It wasn't so much of a 'high' feeling, but I felt mellow and had a case of the chuckles. The only uncomfortable part was the dry mouth, which lasted long into the next morning.
The next morning was fun also... but in a different way. I was SOOO hungry and thirsty. Eating never felt so good in my entire life! Every gulp of my turkey sandwich and soda was pure ecstacy! I ate a lot that day, and never seemed to be full. This hungry/thirsty feeling lasted until the late evening and went away.
Overall, it was not even close to a hallucinogenic experience, but it was very amusing. I think if you have the time, try nutmeg. But be careful on your dosage, don't overdue it.
