Yes, I have… it doesn’t make you hallucinate. Its just very very high alcohol content. I mean…it will get you really drunk. I mean maybe if you drink enough of it you can hallucinate..but that is if you don’t pass out..or die from alcohol poisoning.

Last I thought, it was illegal to purchase in the United States.

I tried the high end kind in Prague, and I definitely hallucinated, but it wasnt a good hallucination because I got really drunk first, haha. I wouldnt suggest it, but only because my experience with it was pretty bad.

Well one time I did a shot of it and then smoked a big blunt with a few friends. I guess you can say I hallucinated but it wasn’t reeeeally halucination. It was just incredible visuals!! :-)

I drank a significant amount before. Just got drunk. Alcohol is considered a hallucinogenic, so I always thought they just tried some marketing scheme to entice people.

wow if alcohol is considered a hallucinogen then i’ve literally been to other dimensions with REAL psychoactives.

I’ve tried my friend’s absinthe that she brought back from europe and no, you’ll be disappointed if you’re taking it to hallucinate. It just gets you wasted + placebo.

@versai, there are many, many different kinds of absinthe, all containing different percentage of alcohol and all containing different amounts of the chemicals Thujone which comes from the plant Wormwood, the chemical known to cause hallucinations from Absinthe. Most people that bring back absinthe are the cheaper bottles that contain 40% alcohol and very low levels of thujone. The higher end absinthe can have up to 70% alcohol by volume and contain very high levels of Thujone. Hence, some absinthe are just alcoholic drinks that mess you up and make you drunk, while others(the more expensive ones) have hallucinigen qualities. The shots I took that made me have very deep and vivid hullucinations cost about 30$ per shot. I also had shots on the menu that were 7$, and did nothing other than get me drunk(tried these shots on different nights).

@yoinkie No shit man, the higher the alcohol %, the more thujone that will be extracted from the absinthe. One would hope a 5x more expensive shot would have 5x more alcohol and thujone in it. But nothing in absinthe makes you hallucinate, that is a myth.

Grab a bottle of 190 grain alcohol and try it yourself. Stuff it with wormwood and shake it over a month. Have fun tripping.

It was big in Paris WWI + era like Hemingway. I agree, most absinthe has little active ingredient and probably won’t make you hallucinate.

Had some legit stuff with wormwood and didn’t hallucinate at all. I think it’s probably because I’ve dont a lot of other stronger hallucinogenics. It also tastes pretty gross IMO. Like super strong Jager.
