Absinthe effects are notorious. Absinthe is well known across the world for its colorful history and the mysterious myths that encircle it.

Absinthe was made in Switzerland in the 18th century as an elixir or tonic. Its primary element, the herb wormwood (Artemisia Absinthium), has been used in medicine since ancient times in the following ways:-
– Being a tonic
– To counteract poisoning a result of hemlock and toadstools
– To activate digestion
– To manage parasitic intestinal worms.

Absinthe began to be distilled and sold by Pernod at the turn of the 19th century and have become famous in La Belle Epoque period and connected with the Bohemian culture of the Montmartre part of Paris – home to numerous artists and writers. Many renowned artists and writers like Van Gogh, Verlaine, Baudelaire, Oscar Wilde and Hemingway counted on the effects of Absinthe proclaiming that it freed their minds and motivated them. Some point out that Van Gogh cut off his ear while intoxicated by the Green Fairy, Absinthe.

A lot of people begun to believe that Absinthe was harmful, claiming that it was psychoactive, an hallucinogen, that it had psychedelic and intoxicating effects and could cause violence and insanity. It was even claimed that a French man had murdered his whole family after ingesting Absinthe. In truth, he had consumed a massive level of other alcohol-based drinks after drinking the Absinthe.

The Absinthe effects were blamed on the wormwood extract in the drink which included a chemical called thujone. Thujone had resemblances with TCH, found in the drug cannabis. Absinthe was forbidden and made unlawful in France in 1915 and im a number of other countries at around the same time. Strangely enough, it was by no means forbidden 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 ingesting any strong spirits, and liquor with a high alcohol by volume, and that Absinthe comprised only very small amounts of thujone. Absinthe was, thus, made legal again in many 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 enables the sale of Absinthe with trace amounts of thujone.

The Absinthe ban supposed that many new Absinthe-like products had been developed to replace Absinthe, just like Pernod Pastis which satisfied people’s appetite for an anise flavored alcoholic beverage. These beverages are still available along with artificial Absinthes which were made for the US market. If you want real Absinthe you’ll need an Absinthe that contains the vital ingredient, wormwood, which gives Absinthe it’s characteristic bitter flavor. Look for Absinthes that contain real wormwood or buy Absinthe essences that contain wormwood and that may be blended with vodka or Everclear to make your individual bottled Absinthe. These essences are employed by the Absinthe industry and may be purchased online through sites like AbsintheKit.com. They come with guidelines concerning how to utilize them and are to be utilized with your Absinthe spoon and glass.

You only need to worry about Absinthe effects if you are planning to consume a significant volume of Absinthe. Remember that Absinthe is two times as strong as whisky and drink it in moderation!
