Wormwood was used to make the fabled psychoactive beverage Absinthe (The Green Fairy), which was very popular in the late 19th century before it became prohibited virtually worldwide. Absinthe was a favorite of many artists and intellectuals of the time. Several species of Artemisia are also smoked for visionary effect by various American first nation tribes.
Use: Wormwood was traditionally smoked to give a high comparable to mild marijuana. When processed into a drink (40 grams Wormwood is shaken daily for 3 weeks in a bottle of strong liquor) it may act as a narcotic or hallucinogen. Absinthe is best drank very slowly so that the effect of the alcohol does not override the effect of the herbs.
Warning: Excessive doses may be toxic. Try a small amount first to test your reaction. Use responsibly, occasionally and in moderation. Obtain clearance from your doctor before using this herbal remedy.
