    How can one eat a dish seasoned with four teaspoons of nutmeg? Besides that, yes, nutmeg does have a twist to its taste.

    In medieval England, a handful of costly nutmeg was equal in value to 3 lambs. In China nutmeg is thought to have curative effects of diseases of the digestive tract. It was also prescribed for rheumatism. Its side effects include sleeping too much and addiction. Use sparingly.

    I already know this.It's the god honest.But you can't expect to soar,like you just smoked a gram of the sweet leaf.But I'f you are pure and eat 3 or 4 nutmeg caps you will feel real funny.Everyone's chemistry is different so it varies.

    It takes 6 hours to kick in, lasts 40 hours, and makes you sleep.  It's not "hallucinogenic" but causes drowsiness and dry mouth similar to cannabis.

    Yes it is hallucinogenic.Trust me….I was a "psychonaut" during highschool. I took large doses and actually had peripheral hallucinations for days at a time. Im glad I did not die.It basically made you kinda stoney with mild to wild hallucinations. The ceiling would lower up and down,cars would crumble inward(like a blackhole) leaves would walk like animals.Very odd stuff.I had no clue it could be fatal or cause hospitalization. I apparently got very close to damaging my body.It is odd about that couple though…I ingested wayyyyyyyyyy more than them on multiple occasions.

    A few years ago, I added 2-3 heaping tablespoons of Nutmeg to a large bowl (4-6 cups) of Oatmeal. I thought it would harmless, similar to adding the same amount of brown sugar. I was wrong. After eating it, I'm 6'/200 pounds, I felt miserable, sick, weak, all my muscles and joints ached and I felt this way for 3-4-5 days. I looked it up and then realized my mistake. I called the spice company McCormick and told them there should be a warning label on their Nutmeg, but I don't think they cared. Long story short, Nutmeg is toxic to your body. Use it in small amounts only, ie 1/4 teaspoon.

    In China most families just put one or two nutmeg as a whole into the soup, after the soup boiled the nutmeg will be throw away.Western food industries prefer to grind all sorts of spices into powder for convenience, I wonder whether it's correct or not.

    Actually, to my knowledge, most spices are dangerous, when consumed in large amounts. For instance, clove is an excellent addition to many dishes in minute quantities, but it's poisonous! Incidentally, it can also be used as an anesthetic: Have a toothache? Rub some powdered clove on your gum in the area of the offending tooth and that should alleviate the pain a bit. Don't swallow it, though!

    I'm not sure if preground nutmeg would have the same effects. It loses its flavor and smell so why wouldn't it lose its potency as well? I'm a heavy baker and only use whole nutmeg, grinding it each use and there is no comparison. Freshly ground nutmeg is so much more aromatic, not to mention tastes much better (you also don't need nearly as much as preground). As soon as a spice is ground it begins to degrade. By the time it gets to a supermarket shelf, then you buy it and use it, there isn't much of that nutmeg left. Not to mention that the average person doesn't use enough of it to even use it up before it's "use by date" so someone saying they gobbled up half the jar trying to get "high" really isn't doing anything. You would NEVER be able to ingest that much freshly ground nutmeg. It would burn your mouth and nasal passages so badly, not to mention, it's the dumbest thing you can do.
