I have, and the good potion(from amsterdam). Not the cheap stuff theyre marketing now around the US. I took a couple of shots and felt fine.

if you bought it in america the effects will not be what your expecting unless you add the wormwood extract to it. buy from overseas..france is a good place ora grimey country if they will ship it to you and you will get what your lookin for. quality absinthe is a good time Ive ejoyed it everytime I did it.

We once had a bottle from overseas we broke out for a friends birthday. By the end of the night, I had hit said friend with my car, where he lied in thedriveway for 15 minutes (asleep, not injured), to come up to the house and have vomit coming out of his mouth with no upheaval, just kind of falling out.Needless to say, you need this alcohol in your life.

What exactly are the effects? How is it different from just drinking?

A just slightly smoother than Jagermeister, but definitely not my thing.

Also usually the ones here don't have wormwood as another NTer pointed out so don't expect to be tripping out like you're on LSD or something.

The Absinthe itself wasn't so bad. Mixing different liquors for over 12 hours was what did me in.



I only drink wine now.

It was over 6 months ago though and the chances of seeing the same people out here while partying is very slim so no worries.

Real absinthe made form wormwood contains alkaloids which are hallucinogenic. You can't sell absinthe containing alkaloids in the US so you either getit without (in which case it's basically a licorice flavored liquor) or you order it form overseas...which is a lot easier than people might expect.
