    I recently read that teenagers are getting high by snorting nutmeg.

    I don't think I've ever had nutmeg. It's a spice right? I think I saw it on my gf's spice cabinet.

    Yes, nutmeg is a spice. It is one of the spices that goes into pumpkin pie.

    probably eating it, not snorting it. apparently (i have no personal experience with this) whole nutmegs can cause hallucination. nutmeg is a strong spice, so you generally use only a 1/2 tsp or less in a pie (so you're eating just a tiny pinch in your slice of pie vs. over 1 tsp if you eat the whole nutmeg). a whole nutmeg will retain significantly more of its oil as well.



    it's not uncommon for common herbs and spices to have medicinal qualities in higher doses. for example high doses of basil can potentially case miscarriage, medicinal amounts of sage or mint can cause a drop in breastmilk supply. fennel and fenugreek can increase milk supply. most herbs haven't been adequately studied to prove that they are effective medicines, but that doesn't disprove that they effective.
