    I think it comes from peyote but i'm not totally sure.

    The 'worm' comes from a plant not a cactus.

    I drank a load while on a camping trip...

    2/3 of us ended up wandering from the beach back to the tents to sleep for hoouuuurs. Not sure what happened to No. 3 as I can barely remember passing out in the tent. No hallucinations; just a surreal, powerful kind of drunk.

    I woke up at 4 in the morning with my mate waving a spliff in my face.

    Good times :thumb:

    I think its possible to be subtle when puking. i know some people that if you werent paying attention you would think they are just spitting and are ending up puking.

    I know many guys who pride themselves on puking. Ever heard of the game Neck and Nominate (see off your drink and nonimate another)? Well, on tour we had Gip and Nominate - drink 'til you chunder and nominate another. A few I know also like to see which moose they can pull after throwing up on themselves. They say you know you've got a good 'un when that doesn't put them off :D

    i ate a tequila worm once and now i cant drink tequila at all cos even the smell makes me feel sick, I was a nit confused because ive heard it called mescaline worm and it made sense if the drink was called mezcal, but I thought real mescaline came from the peyote, so just not sure what i believe anymore *cries*

    Mezcal is just a slightly different tequilla, its nicer if you ask me, but its normally got a higher price.

    thats why you dont take shots of it..... it is meant to be sipped and drink it very slowly.

    Lol, yeah seriously, what did he expect? I found it to be quite good with a bit of sugar and 3 parts (VERY COLD) water...

    It's always around here. people home brew it and bring it in mouthwash bottles from europe. I hate alcohol, no matter what kind. I've never found it to be worth the grossness for the shitty effects. I thought absinthe would be the perfect medium. I was dissapointed with it though. I felt more drunk than anything else.

    Thujone (from wormwood) is the active ingredient, correct?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    You gotta be a serious drinker for it to be worth it, otherwise the effects of the alcohol will overpower those of the thujone. Be sure to get at least triple strength thujone and one with a lower alcohol content (around 110 proof) and it'll be worth your while. Like I said, I didn't actually start halucinating myself, but after only 2 drinks stuff started changing colours slightly and mild colour streaking, so I believe rockerchick when she says it makes you hallucinate when you've had a good deal of it...

    I wanna try the new extra low alcohol (30%), double strength thujone mix. As long as you're a moderately experianced drinker, this would be the ultimate test to see what the thujone in particular feels like...

    ...and contrary to popular opinions, I'd like more friends like rockerchick myself :thumb:

    I think it would be fun to have friends like that but they would know when to stop and when im just taking a break from all that stuff.

    ive been slightly interested in thujone the past .. can you get it/take it seperately ?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    In order to hallucinate you have to add sugar which needs to be caramelised. The Absinthe also needs to have the wood wormer into as well.

    Yeah and BTW its wormwood but specifically the ingredient in wormwood which is thujone.

    I've drank it a few times and I've never noticed it to be any different to any other alcohol really, I only had about two shots over the whole night though so not sure whether thats enough to experience the stuff you're all talking about.

    I drink it because I love the taste of it but I've always been extra cautious because its so strong. I got mine from the Czech Republic, didn't know you could get it here.

    Read my previous post regarding thujone. You are VERY unlikely to have any significant amount of it in the final, distilled absinthe. So no amount of sugar will change that. It's only the one with thujone added afterwards, or undistilled stuff, that can have those kind of effects.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    That's why you gotta steer clear of the no-name varieties (someone told me these types usually only have about 6-7 mg, thus the reason for not disclosing the exact content) and get only ones that have the mg clearly labeled...

    ...and dammit, get something stronger than 10!
