Getting High Off Of Nutmeg?

Getting High Off Of Nutmeg

Now we know why Santa is so jolly!

The newest legal way to get high is to smoke nutmeg. Nutmeg contains myristicin, a natural mind-altering compound.

"It's the flavor of the month," said Dr. Jeffrey Bernstein, medical director at the Florida Poison Information Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital . "But most people only try it once because they have such nasty side effects. The rewards are not worth the risks."

Here’s the problem — smoking nutmeg has some terrible side-effects.

About 30 minutes to an hour after taking large doses of nutmeg, people usually have severe gastrointestinal reactions, including nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Hours later, people can suffer from heart and nerve problems as well.

Sounds fun.

The only thing we’ll be using nutmeg for is to sprinkle it on top of our soy egg nog!
