Absinthe Impressions

-- By  Chris in  Sydney Australia on Tue, 18 Sep 2007 at 12:32.

I like to try new alchoholic beverages, in fact I like to try new foods or non-alcholic beverages as well, have tried Maruana and LSD (the LSD thing was not by choice a superman tab in the beer), did'nt like the LSD and the Maruanna gave a very minimal effect or an unpleasent one.

Love the taste of Absinthe, however it does have a dry after effect on the mouth and tounge that lasts overnight and most of the day, hav'nt had a headache from it and no hallucenations (Which is good as I am not looking for that type of experiance).

Yes, it does give clarity of thought I have had 200ml of the Green Fairy Absenthe over a period of 20 mins which reports as being between 7 and 9 milligrams of Thujone per litre, so that should equate to arround 2 ml of thujone.

I have been working on a programme for waying up the various factors of buying a investment property, and I have solved a number of issues that I have been working on in the last hour since I consumed the Absenthe.

So if you see a bottle in your local bottleshop/off-licence give it a try, a little bit like pernod, bit of a Aniseed taste.

About the effects of absinthe

When it comes to the effects of drinking absinthe, people's opinions -- and experiences -- vary wildly. Some go as far as to claim the drink is psychoactive, while others say there is no "secondary" (that is, other than alcohol-induced) effect at all.

As early as 1993, Matthew Baggott posted his Absinthe FAQ in the Usenet newsgroup "alt.drugs" (there wasn't much of the web as we know it back then). As you will suspect from the newsgroup's name, the issue of absinthe's "psychoactive qualities" was one of the interests of the document.

Some people take it further still. We definitely do not recommend any experiments with Paxil and absinthe (nor, for that matter, mixing any medicine with alcohol). Anyway, it's quite clear which way the wind blows here, since Jasmine Sailing's bizarre piece more or less concludes absinthe is a narcotic. Is it really? Yup, it does read like the girl was out of her mind when she wrote the page -- and no, we don't think the Fairy was to blame!

A far more sober look at the effects of the Green Fairy can be found in "The Return of the Green Faerie", an article written by Frank Kelly Rich of the Modern Drunkard magazine (no pun intended). Recommended reading.
