In low doses, nutmeg produces no neurological response.Large doses of 60g or more are dangerous, inducing convulsions,palpitations,nausea,dehydration,&pain.Amounts of 10-40g it's a medium hallucinogen, producing visual distortions and a mild euphoria.

In high school I read in a book that an adult should get high ingesting about 1 1/2 tablespoons of nutmeg. I went to the store, bought a bottle, and a quart of eggnog. So, after eating a few tablespoons nothing happened, except for feeling rather ill. So, in my experience no you cannot get high on nutmeg.

Yes, Nutmeg contains the psychoactive chemical myristicin. However, very few people use nutmeg as a psychoactive due to it's high toxicity, the length of time it takes to take effect, and the general unpleasantness of the effects. Myristicin side effects include dizziness, dry mouth, nausea, and accelerated heartbeat.
