Okay, ginger. Seriously? You can’t find some marijuana or something a little more common and perhaps safer? Regardless, we’re GetHigh, and we want to cover all of the High topics here. So, to the question, Can you get high off of ginger?
Ginger is a root, native of Asia, which is used as a spice and potent ingredient in everything from tea, to decongestants.Massive amounts of Ginger (i.e. Crystallized Ginger, 4 oz bag) may cause altered visuals, but not much else. There are much better ways out there to alter visuals, including psychedelic mushrooms and LSD. Caution if you do want to get into the Ginger high, symptoms of a ginger overdose may include sleepiness, confusion, dizziness, and irregular heartbeats.
Do not take any ginger without first talking to your doctor if you are taking any of the following medicines:
- any heart medicine;
- insulin or oral diabetes medications such as glipizide (Glucotrol),glyburide (Glynase, Diabeta, Micronase), chlorpropamide (Diabinese),tolbutamide (Orinase), tolazamide (Tolinase), troglitazone (Rezulin),rosiglitazone (Avandia), repaglinide (Prandin), metformin(Glucophage), and others;
- warfarin (Coumadin);
- aspirin or other NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil), diclofenac (Cataflam, Voltaren), etodolac(Lodine), indomethacin (Indocin), meloxicam (Mobic), nabumetone(Relafen), naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn), piroxicam (Feldene), and others;
- a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) including ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, Nuprin, others), naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn, Naprelan, Anaprox, others), ketoprofen (Orudis KT, Orudis), indomethacin (Indocin), etodolac (Lodine), nabumetone (Relafen), oxaprozin(Daypro), piroxicam (Feldene), sulindac (Clinoril), tolmetin (Tolectin), and others;

- other herbs, antioxidants, or health supplements (these may affect blood thinning).
So, to fully answer the question, Can you get high off of ginger? The answer is no. You may have slightly altered visuals with an extreme amount, but the downsides of that extreme amount will likely make you regret it for a long time to come, and perhaps do permanent damage to your body. We recommend not using Ginger to Get High.
