Absinthe effects are infamous. Absinthe is known throughout the world for its vibrant history and the mysterious myths that revolve around it.

Absinthe was made in Switzerland in the eighteenth century as an elixir or tonic. Its primary compound, the herb wormwood (Artemisia Absinthium), has been utilized in medicine since ancient times in the following ways:-
– As a tonic
– To counteract poisoning caused by hemlock and toadstools
– To induce digestion
– To treat parasitic intestinal worms.

Absinthe started to be distilled and sold by Pernod at the turn of the 19th century and became famous in La Belle Epoque period and associated with the Bohemian culture of the Montmartre region of Paris – home to quite a few artists and writers. Many well-known artists and writers which includes Van Gogh, Verlaine, Baudelaire, Oscar Wilde and Hemingway relied on the effects of Absinthe saying that it freed their minds and motivated them. Some point out that Van Gogh cut off his ear while consuming the Green Fairy, Absinthe.

A lot of people began to imagine that Absinthe was harmful, claiming that it was psychoactive, an hallucinogen, that it had psychedelic and envigorating effects and can even cause violence and insanity. It was even believed that a French man had murdered his whole family after consuming Absinthe. In reality, he had ingeste a massive amount of other alcohol-based drinks after drinking the Absinthe.

The Absinthe effects were attributed to the wormwood extract in the drink which included a chemical called thujone. Thujone had commonalities with TCH, found in the drug cannabis. Absinthe was prohibited and made illegal in France in 1915 and im many other countries at around the same time. Oddly enough, it was never restricted in Spain, Portugal, the UK or the Czech Republic.

Many people researched thujone and Absinthe and it was discovered that drinking Absinthe was only as safe as drinking any strong spirits, and liquor with a significant alcohol by volume, and that Absinthe contained only very minute quantities of thujone. Absinthe was, thus, made legal again in lots of countries in the 1990s. EU legislation suggests that bottled Absinthe can only be sold if it contains 10mg/kg or less of thujone and US law only allows the sale of Absinthe with trace levels of thujone.

The Absinthe ban meant that many new Absinthe-like products had been developed to replace Absinthe, like Pernod Pastis which satisfied people’s appetite for an anise flavored alcoholic beverage. These beverages continue to be available along with artificial Absinthes which were designed for the US market. If you would like real Absinthe you need an Absinthe that contains the vital ingredient, wormwood, which gives Absinthe it’s characteristic bitter flavor. Search for Absinthes that have real wormwood or buy Absinthe essences which contain wormwood and that may be combined with vodka or Everclear to create your individual bottled Absinthe. These essences are used by the Absinthe industry and can be bought online through sites like AbsintheKit.com. They come with directions on how to utilize them and are to use with your Absinthe spoon and glass.

You merely need to be concerned about Absinthe effects if you are planning to take a substantialportion of Absinthe. Keep in mind that Absinthe is two times as strong as whisky and drink it without excess!
