||(ground / crushed)
I got fresh ground nutmeg powder from the health food store and losely filled 8 empty gel caps (available in the supplement section of health food stores). I ate these along with 8 caps of Kava Kava powder. The Kava caps were strong, containing 30% Kavaloids (compared to 2.5% of some brands). Effects were felt some half hour later as my muscles relaxed and my mind slowed. The wave of relaxation came on strong and quickly and felt like a low dose of ecstasy. I attribute the euphoric body feeling to the Kava. As my body relaxed my mental state was subtly changing too. This I felt was the nutmeg acting.
My thoughts were fluid and creative, less bound by patterns, and loving like a marijauna high. Unlike marijauna, though, my thinking was focused and clear like in meditation. The entire day I felt in touch with truth. I had patience with people and in situations that usually annoy me and found it easy to concentrate. There was dry mouth and a slight headache. I repeated this for the next two days without any hang over or problems working. I love these mellow plants.
