Has anyone tried the real kind, and willing to share thoughts/experiences. Also looking for the best place to buy it online
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.
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.
