    Anyone ever drink absinthe?

    I know a lot of you probably think I don't need it, what with my All my AR Children scripts and other senseless posts, but I really, REALLY want to see if that stuff is all it's cracked up to be. I suppose I could go through another 'shrooms phase if I really wanted to, but they've been such a pain in the ass to get lately. Regardless, if any of you have drank it before, I'd love to hear about it...particularly as to whether it's hallucinogenic properties live up to billing.

    It seems readily available on line from many overseas and apparently legit shippers...with sort of the same caveat as buying other 'grey market' goods.

    Although I have never personally tryed this, there was a conference in New Orleans a few years back, and low and behold there was Absinthe to be found there. Regardless, a few friends of mine gave it a try, and said it gave them a certain "clarity" of mind. Evidently, if you drink a little, it can give a slight euphoric feeling, however, due to the alcohol content, any more then a little (a few glasses) gets you completely drunk as does a normal alcoholic beverage.

    ....Reminds me also of Eurotrip, with the Green Fairy flying around....

    i looked into ordering it but for 17 ounces it was somewhere between 115 for the cheap stuff and 175 for the top shelf stuff. Its supposed to be the bomb when you mix it with red bull and vodka, its called a bull rush. Maybe someday.......

    BigGreen it is just really strong alcohol with just a little of the hallucinogenic properties (wormwood) in it. The absinth today is nothing as compared to what it was back during the late 1800’s to early 1900’s. It was the drug of choice for many artists because it had been reported to stimulate the creative process or creative part of the brain. One glass of the green fairy had you tripping back in the day. However, today you would have to drink two whole bottles to get that kind of effect and then you would be so drunk you would not know which part of you is up or down. Absinth was banned in most countries because there were some incidents with blindness. So, most countries took it off the market except for some Slavic countries and I think it is still legal in Spain. However, the stuff you order from there will mostly just be a good strong drink with very little hallucinogen.

    Guys... if your not really into the whole drinking thing cause ur on a cycle or wtvr and u wanna try some absynth, Order wormwood (the main ingredient in absynth that makes you trip) and smoke it. It been done by a mass amount of people and is used as a "legal high" for some people.

    I can give u guys a link if u want....i dono if im allowed too just hit me up on AIM and ill direct u to the cheapest site out there. Who knows, if you wanna drink it youd prolly be able to make ur own absynth type drink fromt his stuff.

    I drank quite a bit between Europe and Asia. I wasnt all that impressed. Once you catch the euphoria, the alchohol quickly takes over and you are drunk. If you could aquire the ingredients like some kits I have seen, and increase the amount of wormwood in the concoction, it may be intresting. I personaly believe the amount of opium that they smoked influenced them much more than the absinth.

    I actually have a bottle of Absinth Gold sitting in front of me right now. Had some last night. I ordered a bottle that has three times the normal amount of wormwood. It’s a harsh drink. Doesn’t taste the best, even when mixing it they way they tell you to. I have to agree with what everyone has said. You have to drink a butt load in order to “feel” anything and by that time you’re drunk.

    strong anise taste (Black licorice)
    high Alcohol content: 70%
    the legal limit of thujone (wormwood) is 35 mg (cause it can be toxic)
    theres more hype then high with this product.
    I bought my bottle from eabsinthe.com had it in less than a week
    but got like killed in shipping $64(bottle) and 35 shipping and, 8 bucks handeling.
    If i was going to buy again i think ill try absinth24.net but it wont be any time soon.

    its readily available here (walmart even sells it)
    you light a sugar cube over the scinth, let it drip in, then shoot it
    tastes like ass.....no wormwood trips, unlike the old days
    but will get you drunk like never before

    My bottle says there is 100 mg of wormwood in it. Don't know if it's correct and I really didn't feel anything more than your normal buzz.

    How much difference do you notice when lighting it on fire or not? Ive drank my fair share of sinth, but like inheritmylife said, the 140 proof alcohol takes control rather quick

    So basically, if you are thinking this stuff will really make you trip or anything...it wont, unless it is on your face

    We can buy it here at any just about any store that sells booze..a store here called Auchan, a grocery/clothing store, like a Fred Meyer or Super Wal-Mart, sells it ..to get the "tripping qualities" from it, you must drink alot..it is a "cumulative" effect that is built up over quite awhile.
    It isnt just a "drink and trip" type of thing. All the hype over Absinthe is just that-HYPE!

    you wont get the "tripping effect" by drinking lots of it
    after 3 drinks, the alcohol takes over and you are left with the "drunk off your ass effect"
    some of it is 70%....equivalent almost to bacardi 151

    Exactly- the effect of it all...is a cummliative effect- it takes a while to build up in a person...drink more than a 2 drinks IMO- the day is finished!

    Not true in the least,

    I've drank enough Absinthe to have gotten plentry drunk, and I never feel the effects of alcohol. Neither has anyone else Ive tried it with. I think most modern Absinthe doesnt have enough wormwood to give it the proper effect.

    The herbal effects seem to cancel out the effects of the alcohol.

    *I brew my own, it is very strong *****

    ive had absinth in europe, the us and stuff made from wormwood. None of it is worth it imo. Or maybe it's just that it was so hyped I expected more from it. But i'll never do it again, not because of bad experience just because I didnt enjoy it.
