This has never been proven to make anyone hallucinate. You're literally drinking a meme invented by wackjob artists and new agers.
>>
>>7303543
What, are you some edgy highschooler that just tried it and expected to hallucinate instead of just enjoying it as alcohol so now you're cranky?
The "hallucination" stuff was just period propaganda against alcohol in general and absinthe became a symbolic target because it was a popular high-proof alcohol at the time.

Yes, we know this because we are little babies who don't understand how chemicals work

Oh bullshit, people have been saying absinthe makes you hallucinate for fucking decades.
>>
>>7303573
Tripsman is right though.
Everything about the hallucinations is teetotalist propaganda from the late 19th century in France to the immediate post first world war in America.
It just makes you see whack because you've drunk a pint of 80% alcohol by volume aniseed flavored degreasing agent.

OP is right, you know.
>>
>>7303573
The hallucinations were the result of adulterated product back during the 19th century when there weren't food safety regulations. Absinthe was often full of solvents and other poisonous industrial chemicals used as cheap alternatives for the natural botanicals its supposed to contain.

We bought a bottle of absinthe thinking we were edgy /ck/unts. It was meh. That licorice taste is god awful to me. I know the bottles that are sold here in the states are knockoffs that don't have the wormwood or whatever. Just get some weed or a Bacardi 151. Fuck that overrated shite.

Thujone is the psychoactive compound in absinthe. It's heavily regulated outside of europe. Visual hallucinations have been documented. This thread is shit.

Weren't you supposed to green text that retard. Shit tastes awful. Like vodka and gin so I don't fuck with them either. It could be the best brand, and I still would refuse it. Stay butthurt.

Only retards an anti-alcohol morons think it makes anyone hallucinate. Really, it's just a flavored alcohol like many others.

OP is a cock sucking faggot.
>>
Why is everyone so mad at each other in this thread? Can't we all just get along?
>>
>>7304188
It's also regulated in Europe. 35mg/l limit.

Considering to reach a therapeutic dose even at the maximum permitted limit, you'd need to consume half a litre, at something like 72.5% ABV or higher, - which is a level that would give you nasty alcohol poisoning - and that historical absinthes analysed had not even a third this much, it's pretty unlikely that any known active ingredient in absinthe other than alcohol has any significant non-placebo effect.

But that said, it really doesn't matter, if you like it.

I really like the flavour of a good absinthe, though a lot of people don't like the bitter aniseed overtones. I find it a pleasant drink, and I tend to have quite vivid dreams after a few for whatever reason (as above, probably the alcohol!). Try it with some cloudy apple juice and ginger ale, it's pretty good.

I just started trying it out. The first couple times weren't too good but after the 4th time I'm starting to really like the taste. Which absinthe do you recommend anon? I bought the Lucid Absinthe which do you recommend I try next? Any of these good? http://www.totalwine.com/spirits/liqueurs-cordials-schnapps/herbal-spice/absinthe/c/000916

Thujome content has been minimal even when testing vintage bottles of "real" absinthe. The frogs were just hallucinating because they were literally dying of organ failure from the paint thinner and shit they were using to cut the liqour

i blame the french

i also blame the tradition of normies inaccurately describing things as hallucinogens. i mean, weed doesn't even give you visuals, and think of how often the media portrays people seeing wacky surreal shit because they smoked weed! acid doesn't even give you crazy hallucinations it just makes things that are already there look different

the point being dont trust normies

When we were 15 we stole a bottle of absinth from friends parents and 3 of us drank the whole thing. I pujed everywhere around his place. On the carpet, on the walls, on sofa.. Everywhere... Fpr some reason his parents were never mad at me.
>>
>>7303543
no one in this thread knows what they are talking about. Wormwood is what causes the hallucinations; it's still in Absinthe these days but at a MUCH lower amount than it used to contain. Authentic absinthe is not sold in the US because it is illegal. It's only available in Amsterdam.

That's a relatively minor thing I forgot.

Good story, though, I don't think people give the anime enough credit.

I guess I'll go get some absinthe soon, I know someone that regularly smuggles the "real" stuff into the country.

Brew beer from hensbane or mandrake root. Makes you hallucinate more than most psychedelics.
>>
>>7306512
what a comfy gif
>>
>>7303543
But wormwood is pychoactive. Its just never in a high enough dosage for anything in absinthe. You can smoke it or brew it yourself if you want to have a comfy high.
>>
Anon, I drink to feel okay. I don't listen to people who don't know their stuff.
>>
It was never actually the thujone content that made people hallucinate, but rather the mixture of herbs used to spice it.

A little known fact is that many essential oils are actually hallucinogenic: nutmeg being the obvious one every 13 year old with an internet connection knows about, for which the active ingredient is myristicin. Safrole is likely hallucinogenic as well, for example. The trouble with these essential oils is that while they may make you trip balls, they're also universally very carcinogenic.

So while certain preparations of absinthe made with essential oils or other concentrated herbs may have indeed been quite hallucinogenic, if you had the stuff you may also get a side-order of cancer with your trip. Which is bad vibes, man.
