The Best Alternative

3 tsp oral Nutmeg (ground / crushed)


I have used nutmeg several times, however the last time I used it was about a year ago. Since that time I have had a somewhat frequent and reliable source of acquiring weed, so I have not needed anything except the odd bit of vodka. This night however I was forced to stay home and baby-sit my younger siblings, so without any contactable source; I decided to improvise. I scoured the house in search of any pills, bottles, or odd nug of weed that had been left around, all of this was to no avail. Finally, after making myself two pogo's and a bowl of instant ramen, I saw the nutmeg jar... “Of course...” I muttered to myself, it was early enough in the day that I could take it and experience the full trip without sleeping.

Please note this starts at 12:30PM

T 0:00 - 3 teaspoons(5g each) ingested orally, washing down with milk helps immensely with the taste.

T 1:00 - Lightest buzz, most likely placebo affect, I take another teaspoon of nutmeg.

T 2:00 - Somewhat of a pot buzz setting in, mouth not dry yet, a little dizzy.

T 3:00 - Parents walk in door of house to get ready, they are leaving until 12:00AM so I have the house to me and the kids. Same feeling.

T: 5:00 - Feeling a full buzz, very similar to smoking half a joint. I start making spaghetti.

T: 8:00 - Feeling quite stoned at this point, I make myself a can of beans and lie down on my memory foam, I just sit and listen to music for a while.

T: 9:15 - I have excessive red eye and dry mouth, I talk to my brother on the phone. The talking feels wonderful and I am saddened when he leaves.

T: 10:00 - After making a fire, watching TV and walking around I decide to watch T.V. I can’t remember the name of the show at all, my eyes are almost watering.

T: 11:00 - I see everything in cell-shaded at this point, it is captivating and hard to focus. I notice now that I have drunk a massive 5 cokes in the last hour, yet I am still unnervingly thirsty.

T: 12:00 - I am intensely stoned at this point, my vision is fuzzy and music sounds absurdly slow, this feels amazing

T: 12:30 - Parents just walked in the door, all lights turned off; wouldn't want them seeing my eyes. Unbelievably high right now, eyes are crazy heavy and I ponder sleeping.

T: 13:00 - I fall into a deep sleep and have insanely vivid dreams. Somewhat hard to recall but in one I remember being a paraplegic.

T: 19:00 - Wake up and take a piss. I'm about as high as T: 5:00 but unimaginably tired, I fall asleep again.

T: 22:00 - Fully awake now, still very tired and drained. I only feel the slightest buzz now.

This was one of my favorite nutmeg experience. It almost felt like taking a small dose of mushrooms and then smoking a joint. I have never had a bad nutmeg trip. It is a great drug, in some circumstances better than marijuana. When out of any 'Real' drugs, Nutmeg makes a good and fun alternative.
