I'm a Absinthe neophyte from Fl and as a philosophical Alchemist, and self practiced (black) magiciasn/ scholarly Laveyan Satanist (Wasn't I already smoking a Green Devil...) ,I've taken interest in Absinthe to open the floodgates of inspiration. I am aware that as much as I like a good space trip, Absinthe is more comparable to a (clean) mushroom trip. Reality in high def.

On the occult side, my constant omenry has given numerous references to a Green fairy, and a certain glow appears (I'm kind of permatripping..) at a spot in in the room at night in my peripheral.. I'm convinced of the possibility that a Green fairy "spirit" exists within the thujone compound. Other than that, I don't have an explanation for my meandering into her territory .

I'm ordering a 280 ml absinthe essence bottle (35 mg thujone, wheres the cheapest, preferring an original absinthe look with louche effect and all?). Originally the tempel and Suicide bottles were tempting till I realized the shipping fee will break my bank.

I'm also curious as to the other known uses for wormwood and the least priciest booze I might find to mix the essence in.

Oh dear.  Where to begin...

1. Absinthe is not a drug.  It's really not anything like mushrooms, opium, pot, coke, etc, etc, ad nauseam.

2. Thujone is not a player in absinthe.  It has no bearing on the taste, aroma or (dare I say) buzz.  10ppm is "thujone free" and 35ppm is still insignificant.  The majority of pre-ban absinthe would have passed thujone tests.  The Green Fairy delightfully resides in our imaginations and not in thujone.

3. Regarding absinthe essence, I'm sorry to say you will be ripped off.  It's garbage and is in no way related to absinthe.  Nothing about it is akin to absinthe and you cannot make absinthe with it.

 

Please, visit the Wormwood Society home page and do some reading.  This is a wonderful educational site and we have an abiding appreciation for what absinthe really is:  A delicious liquor with an intriguing past.  I hope you hang around and start learning about absinthe. :cheers:

Drinking absinthe to see the Green Fairy is like drinking coffee to see Juan Valdez.

You all seem in a way, dumbass yourselves.
Mushrooms aren't hallucinogenic.
Alcohol is a drug.
I never said absinthe produced visions.

So is the absinthe effect a real mind altercation, or are we afraid to talk about that here?

Right. All of us dumbasses who have been studying the taxonomy and chemistry of absinthe and it's constituents for years.

So is the absinthe effect a real mind altercation, or are we afraid to talk about that here?

 

Maybe, instead of attacking the people who know what they're talking about, you should read the scientific documents and information we've posted. Again, start with the info in my signature below. It's quite easy for someone seeking the truth to find it.

It is that many here have been discussing thujone mythology for going on almost 20 years now.

And have long ago concluded that thujone is not important to any 'secondary effects' that some, not all, people feel when drinking absinthe.

 

A little common sense.  Thujone is easily found in such common kitchen herbs like sage...and no one has ever 'tripped' on that.

You have come to a place were many have sipped the very beverage that Crowley knew, 100 plus year old absinthe, or modern absinthe made in the same way.  Crowley would have not even recognized shit like Suicide or 'elixer'  as anything like absinthe. 

 

Brands that are hyping thujone are just trying to take your money....it like saying it is better to empty a bathtub with a teacup than a shotglass,

Sorry Omera, but you wandered into a den of highly knowledgeable absinthe enthusiasts.   The things you're saying sound silly.  Hey!  You don't work for Faux News, do you? :dry:

Well, that's not a bad point, Gee13.  Generally, I'm pretty optimistic when it to comes almost everything and I sincerely like to believe there's some good out there in everyone.  Omera is dreadfully misinformed (like many of us were 15 - 20 years ago) and I considered the 2 obvious possibilities of what would happen: he would respond positively to the wonderful learning opportunity or not.  I felt like the odds were against a favorable response but I wanted to give him a chance.  If he responded negatively, I could enjoy watching a well-informed group of enthusiasts flex their collective muscle (as Mork suggested) and make a little entertainment far more interesting than anything on TV. ;)

 

So the ball is in omera's court.  How he responds will determine how quickly this SNL sketch ends or if it turns into something good. :cheers:

But despair not! It does have have great potential for indulging in the virtues of hedonism:)

 

Edit: There is also something to be said of enjoying a sense of lowered conscious, sometimes.


(lowered, is that the right word? Doesn't look right to me. But you get the gist)

The truth can hurt sometimes.

 

The 'effect' you get from absinthe isn't any different than drinking a coffee with some whiskey in it.  

 

And the stuff you've been drinking isn't even absinthe! :)

Omera, I'm going to do you a favor that can reach far beyond the present topic, but you have to do it properly. I'm as serious as a heart attack.

 

1.  Be alone.

 

2. Take a few deep, relaxing breaths.

 

3. Watch this:

 

 

4. Breathe some more.

 

5. Read all of the articles on our home page.

 

Repeat as necessary.

I did thoroughly enjoy the taste of Absinthe, so does ABC liquor carry it, or do I need to order Lucid online?
If anything I could make green Dragon with it too as a sanctity
