Herbal Helpers for Absinthe

Recommended Posts

As of recent I have found that smoking herbal cigarettes during absinthe helps the buzz, kills hangover and makes it even taste all the more better.

 

Currently my favorite mix has been of Lavender, Hops and a dash of Peppermint and with a filter there is absolutely no harshness to the smoke at all. If you are looking for a hangover cure or Painkilling these herbs can and will help you, either in tea or smoke.

Just thought I'd share that tidbit of info with you all.

 

PS: just make sure they are organic.

Strangely enough, I’ve never had a hangover from drinking purely absinthe. And I’ve consumed well over my normal limit from time to time. One of the many, many reasons I enjoy it so much. :)

I agree as well, and I think that owes much to the quality of herbs inside the drink. Although I will rarely drink enough to put me into a hangover, all other forms of alcohol that I've tried will cause a headache or just a sluggishness that takes all day to loose. With Absinthe though the next morning is usually warm and no pain is felt. It could be that when I choose to drink it is often in the 4-5 beers/glasses ratio so that would put anyone's liver into an overload if they are not used to drinking much.

 

Also, I tried a cigarette of Lavender and Mugwort last night that caused the most vivid dream I've had in months. Mugwort has thujone in it and alongside the Lavender tasted great, and gave off an Absinthe type of feeling. Tonight though I plan on trying the same mix again alongside 2-3 glasses of the Kübler 53, so hopefully the results will be just as good and hopefully better than last night. :thumbup:

I have had Absinthe hangovers worse than cheap tequila hangovers.. I have also stayed hydrated, eaten steaily thru the day and drank plenty of Absinthe all the while and been right as rain the next day. I truly feel that whether one gets hung over has more to do with how much one respects the booze and one's self.

 

Back when I was a kid lookin for a buzz in all the wrong places I went thru the Celestial Seasonings collection and rolled up a fattie of each flavor we had. No buzz to be found but the Spearmint tasted really nice I must say.

Please read this article before someone starts taking shots at you. Actually, there are several very good articles there. :cheers:

The thujone isnt going to get me wasted, I've figured that out by now. In the past I've even smoked wormwood extract and nothing ever happened. Except a rancid nasty taste and a slight headache. I still attribute the main effects of Absinthe to be from the total combination of herbs distilled together, to make the elixer I am currently drinking.

 

Mugwort has been used for hundreads of years as a dreaming herb, which is my interest in it. Alongside the Lavender and Hops leaf Mugwort tastes very good, and makes me feel very happy. Last night I tried the mix and had a very, very vivid dream. Nothing tried in the past would produce what I saw in that dream, so it has become of value to me, as I am seeking very vivid dreams.

 

It seems like months' had passed since I had dreamed, and last night came as a blessing.

 

Oh and as for smoking the Celestial Seasonings, I cannot imagine how horrible most of that would taste, being highly processed tea with tons of stored flouride. One day I hope to own a Heath food business and web site to help get rid of horrendous companies such as theirs. The reason CS is so horrible to myself and everyone is how insidious they are in hiding Soy Lechithin in most of their teas. Genetically Engineered soy contains pesticides that cause sterility and death in lab trials, so avoid GM as much as you can.

Just to clarify, I did that in 1982. I've done a lot of much dumber stuff than that since then, banana peels included....but I shall spare this forum the details.

 

Unless, of course, it is appropos to the subject and too funny to leave alone. :devil:

Some of us have had, hmmmm, colorful histories. As for myself, I rarely dredge them up in here.

 

My God man, think of the children. :tongue:

 

Hell, I quit smokin' in 1980. :twitchsmile:

Boring? Shoot Scuto, I'm dull as dirt. *yawn* I like sitting in my lawn chair on the drive with a drink in my hand and just watch the old people walk past. I yell at them to slow down. That's my excitement.

 

History is past. Today is a different history for tomorrow.

I wish I could quit smoking. I started when I was 15 yrs old. Lately though I have nearly cut out all tobacco and have switched to herbals. Soon I want that to stop as well and just drink it in a tea because my lungs are starting to age. The habit of holding a lit smoke though is the hardest thing to break, hopefully here soon I can stop with it altogether.

That's what's up.

 

I would like to tell the seniors 'round here to stop building McMansions (and their offspring who have come back to breed, and I mean that in the nicest way), but then they'd stop spending their $$$ at the local shops! A wee catch-22.

 

I don't smoke herbs, I drink them. In absinthe form. Yum!

My "lawn" is desert landscaping.

I'll be happy to give you some rocks and fresh tumbleweed sprouts. :laugh:

No idea why, but absinthe seems to CURE my hangovers, pre-hangover.

 

5 drinks of... well, whatever.

1-2 glasses of absinthe at the end

Happy-n-Fresh Larsy in the morning.
