Wormwood (alsem) is a bitter tasting stem-like plant with green-grey leaves and little yellow flowers.

Wormwood has both a psychoactive and medicinal function. It has been used against rheumatism, gout and tapeworm. This is where the English name comes from.

Wormwood is the main ingredient of the legendary drink absinthe, which was invented in 1792 by a French doctor. Intended as a medicine, it became very popular as a recreational drink.

A lot of artists were affected by absinthe in their work. First, the drink was called 'the green fairy' or 'the green goddess'. Later the drink was known as 'the plague' or 'the queen of poisons'.

In 1915 the production of absinthe was forbidden because it was accused of driving people to madness. However, even when drinking it in large quantities (something we absolutely do not recommend), one can only be sure to become extremely drunk. The only thing that can affect your health is the high percentage of alcohol (up to 75%). Absinthe has recently become legal again in all European countries.

Effects

Wormwood is a mental stimulant. The effect of wormwood is narcotic, lightly anesthetic, giving a peaceful and relaxing feeling. In combination with alcohol or in larger dosages hallucinations might occur. Wormwood is suitable for making tea, which has a positive effect during post-flu or post-infectious periods. In small doses, wormwood is a remedy against common cold, rheumatism and tapeworm. It also increases the appetite.

Usage

A common way to use wormwood is to make a tea of it. Soak 1 teaspoon in a cup of hot (non-boiling) water. The tea has a bitter taste, which is hard to avoid. You can mix it with peppermint leaves or anise.

To make absinthe, soak 40 grams (1½ oz.) of wormwood for a couple of weeks in ½ litre of liquor (for instance Pernod). After sifting it, the drink is ready for use. Try a little glass first to make sure of the dosage.

Warning

Wormwood is poisonous. Long and intensive use can lead to addiction, corporal and psychical decline and it can lead to feelings of nervousness, restlessness and cramps. High doses can cause headaches and dizziness. Higher doses are psycho-activating and have a paralysing effect. Intoxication effects due to overdose are arbitrary stools, unconsciousness, coma and death. After making absinthe, try one small glass at first and wait about an hour for the effect. Try it again at another opportunity. Better to dose too little with no effects than too much, risking poisoning yourself or making yourself sick. Do not drive motorized vehicles under the influence of wormwood.

Heerlijk ontspannen na het drinken hier van.
Ik doe een theelepel in een kopje water en laat het 5 minuten intrekken.
De maak is inderdaad heel erg bitter, maar daar heb ik een prima oplossing voor.
Doe een dropje in je mond te doen en rustig op zuigen en een slokje nemen van de thee.
de bittere smaak word voor 90% weg gevaagd.

Drop tip: oldtimer autodrop (groene pakje)

Au première abord, le goût n'est vrai pas terrible voir super amer. A voir par la suite si les effet sont néfaste ou peu hallucinogène.

Personnellement, après l'avoir senti, ces d'une odeur immonde. J'ai ensuite essayer de le faire en infusion, pareil, cela à un gout horrible voir imbuvable même avec 4 sucre et j'ai aussi essayer de le fumeur et encore déçu à par avoir mal a la gorge ce qui est normal. Donc pas top du tout de mon point de vue.

I bought it for a relative, who has rheumatoid arthritis, and days ago I made him a tea of low-medium concentration (just as described in the information) when the pain started to kick in. Half an hour later he was asleep, for two hours. When he woke up, he was lethargic, cheerful, and the pain disappeared. It's been four days since he took the tea and he has not felt any more pain anywhere.

It does not induce sleep, it helps you getting it if you are tired. Before giving it to my buddy, I tested it. I took a tea of higher concentration and all I felt was a little high and sedated (not so similar to weed, just sedated), so I guess the effect depends on the tolerance of the user. Try changing the concentration if the first tea doesn't work for you.

Er zijn twee manieren om de bittere smaak te neutraliseren. Umami neutraliseert bitter, en wij hebben ontdekt dat 200 gram geraspte oude boerenkaas op 50 gram alsem zorgt voor een meer dan acceptabel effect. Heb je die niet binnen handbereik, dan kan je nog iets anders proberen. Drie dessertmints van Mentos op 50 gram alsem haalt de scherpe kantjes er ook vanaf. Dit alles is gebaseerd op de verhouding 50 gram alsemkruid op 0.6 liter pastis gecombineerd met 40 gram anijszaad, 40 gram venkelzaad, 20 gram steranijs en 0.5 liter Mispelblom Brandewijn.

Veel plezier!

I occasionally buy a bottle of La Fée parisienne Absinthe and 'use' it as directed burning the alcohol and mixing with sugar and water.It's great (if used correctly) mixed with Champagne BEFORE you go out.It acts like a stimulant and makes you feel really lively and cheerful.

But beware when buying absinthe as a lot of types are simply virtually pure alcohol with an anisseed flavouring added. Think Pernod, which was originally absinthe ! but had to be toned down due to missuse and no longer contains wormwood. 'Pernod' do however still export an absinthe but I'd stick with La Fée.It's made to the original recipe and is indeed distilled with wormwood.

But remember to follow the directions closely.The alcohol content needs to be burned off or it'll make you feel lousy/poorly.

Very tasty smoke but no effects. Tea also has mostly placebo effects. Use it to make a strong Absinthe and in Joints as tabacco substitute.

Its just not a hallucinogenic, dont take the description too serious.

I am so used to the taste of wormwood because I have used it to work against nausea since I was a kid, and it works like a charm! I recommend it to everyone! Best herb to make a tea out of for treating nausea! Thank God for wormwood!

I'm not too sure about absinthe, but i've been taking wormwood extract for several days to kill a recent and very unwelcome worm infection... not sure what's happened to the worms but it's unexpectedly cleared up a fungal skin rash that i've been only partially controlling for 15 years with canesten cream, but there's always a fresh rash somewhere on my body... now my skin's completely clear. Yaay wormwood!

Reviewer

Also habe heute mal Wermut ausprobiert.
Ich dachte ich fang mal gechillt mit einem Tee am Abend an, man muss sagen ich hag an die 2 Teelöfel nicht wie empfohlen 1er genommen.
Gut 10 Minuten ziehen lassen los gings... eine Qual, hab noch nie sowas bitteres getrunken.
Aber na ja nach der halben Tasse hat sich echt ein ansatzweise "high" gefühl eingestellt ...äußerst entspannt und locher alles es schmeckte auch gar nicht mehr so schlimm...
aber dann im letzten drittel ... der übelste Brechreitz und ab gings in ca. 20 Sekunden kam alles wieder durch Nase und Mund raus...und weg war das "high"...
also na ja ich hoffe ein Dauereffekt sondern nur ne Ausnahme
gibts noch andere Erfahrungen

The only reason to take Wermut is to kill worms in your guts......a nasty drug that harms you when taken as fun drug.

Reviewer

great for stimulating the creative process, as a sleeping aid, or for those who want to dream but can't/don't. been a fond user for 4 years. note: moderation is the key. different species have different potencies. the smell of it alone gives you the most relaxed and calm feeling without having to eat or smoke it. also keeps unwanted pests out of the garden. everything from rabbits and deer to mosquitoes and caterpillars. attracts ladybugs for some reason.... almost no end to the uses for wormwood.

Schmeckt als Tee ziemlich eklig, aber man kann es rauchen. Wirkt sehr beruhigend, kann man als Gras-Ersatz benutzen. Macht müde und wirkt etwa 45 Minuten. Kann mit sehr schlechten Gras durchaus mithalten, dafür hat man kein Stress mit der Beschaffung. Ich guck jetzt, dass ich immer was davon da habe, falls ich mal wieder meine ganze Kohle verkifft habe oder nix kriege.

Bad taste and it kills you much faster then tobacco + alcohol but nice for a slow suicide.

É obvio que o Absinto fumado não faz grande efeito. A quantidade de substancias psicoactivas que são absorvidas pelo nosso corpo, via pulmonar, é diminuta.
Fazendo chá, é mais obvio aínda, pois as substancias que são psicoactivas, não são hidrosoluveis. São substancias orgânicas, logo, têm de ser dissolvidas em solventes orgânicos, ex: "alcool, manteiga, azeite, oleo para carros, esperma, muco vaginal etc...".
Cannabis é Cannabis, fuma-se, Absinto é Absinto, bebe-se.
Apesar de que a Cannabis também pode ser ingerida com fins recreativos.
O Absinto pode ser ingerido como infusão em água, como vermífugo.
Tens lombrigas? Bicha solitária? Bebe um chásinho de Absinto, que te faz bem!

Très très bon produit, fumé en spliff pour une bonne détente assez comparable au canna, et en douilles que du bonheur. J'aurai voulu mettre 5 étoiles mais le paquet est plein de branches il faut passer du temps à tout trier avant de fumer on en retire entre 60 et 70 grammes sur le paquet de 100 grammes.
J'ai déjà essayé une bonne dizaine de produits sur ce site et c'est celui qui se rapproche plus de la weed.
Achetez les yeux fermés vous ne serez pas déçus, merci Azarius.

lustiges kraut.
einfach ein bisschen davon in den tabak mischen und eine zigarette rauchen. schmeckt köstlich und die wirkung ist seehr chillig.
nichts überragendes, aber abends zum einschlafen sehr nett. ;-)

tipp:
die großen brocken absieben (daraus kann man dann tee machen) und nur die brösel rauchen. lässt sich leichter drehen und wirkt stärker.

Interessant kruid met een onmiskenbare werking. Wat ik er aan toe wil voegen is het effect op de baarmoeder: zwangere vrouwen kunnen het beter niet gebruiken.

Um Absinth zu machen ist das Kraut genau richtig! Zum rauchen aber nicht. Schmeckt wie verbranntes Heu und die Wirkung dürfte auch die selbe sein. Also in den Schnaps damit und ne Woche stehen lassen.

Has very subtle effects, too subtle. Since it is poisoness don`t think about taking more for better effect. A guy in Washington State, US did that and ended up with kidney failure and a long stay in the hospitol. Its not just the wormwood, absinthe has a mix of many herbs and don`t forget an average of 75% (150 proof) alchohol content.
