Wormwood
    #4536125 - 08/15/05 01:00 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I went to www.iamshaman.com and I noticed they sell wormwood. I wanted to go to Europe for absinth, but its not worth the 2000$ when I can buy like 16oz. for like 15$. Has anyone ever used wormwood? Does anyone know the doses?

Absinthe needs to be distilled. Dissolving some wormwood in water or alcohol won't make absinthe, just a crude extraction of wormwood. Besides thujone, it'll contain other essential oils that are known to be toxic.

(Check out the wormwood experiences at Erowid for an overall opinion of it.)

It seems a lot of ethnobotanical vendors sell overpriced wormwood (or the homemade absinthe kits) just due to it being an ingredient in absinthe. It's a shame they don't sell the still to go with it.

Best advice? If you really need to try it, you'd be better off saving up for one of those overpriced bottles. Personally, I wasn't too impressed with it. Mostly a clear-headed drunkeness with a very slight change in visual perceptions. It's more hype than anything else.

First off, you went to the wrong "vendor" in Europe if you had to pay that much... In Switzerland, you can get a fifth bottle of REAL absithe for about $20 american.

I beg to differ... I guess it all depends on the manufacturer/brewer of the Absinthe... The Absithe I've had was TOTALLY different than a "drunk".... It had and almost cannabis-effect quality to it.

Most "absinthe" that I've seen for sale, here in England at least, is basically just green vodka. Half of the stuff I've tried didn't even go milky when you add the water, showing that it didn't contain any plant oils like the good stuff does. So be careful what you spend your money on, you could get ripped off....

The good stuff I've had has been very good though, very different to just being drunk. I really wish that I could remember the brand of it, but after a load of absinthe, remembering things gets difficult! :frown: :shrug:.
