Maximum thujone?
What's about thujone and its rumored psychoactive qualities?
There is no LSD-like delirious state caused by absinthe. But an absinthe inebriation is often described as more clear and awake. Many absinthe drinkers tell about it, but there is no scientific evidence. Individual disposition, autosuggestion and placebo effect are supposably an issue. Maybe the combination of all ingredients together is somehow effective and not a singular substance. At last absinthe contains up to two dozens of different herbs, each with an individual effect on humans. Many of them are known as medicinal herbs for thousands of years.
Current researches state that the thujone contents of historic absinthes was not higher than in our days. However few samples should represent the whole rich absinthe culture of the 19th century. Maybe the clients of that study who are in part big players in the absinthe business, have an eye on the awaking US market where the thujone contents is limited to 10mg/kg.

Absinthe or Absinth ?
In the German speaking area and in the Czech Republic, this wormwood spirit is spelled Absinth. In French and English it is called absinthe. Sometimes absinth is used as a synonym for macerated, anise-free wormwood liquor of German and Czech origin (Bohemian absinthe culture). On the other hand absinthe often stands for a high anise contents in a wormwood distillate of French or Swiss origin and for original authenticity by pure distillation of herbs.
As the Spanish call their absinthe absenta, the Polish call it absynth, and there are many other forms of spelling around the world, for the sake of simplicity we will here use the official english word absinthe.

Absinthe herbs
The absinthe-typical herbs that define the flavour are wormwood, anise and fennel. Also common are star anise, hyssop, lemon balm, roman wormwood, garden angelica, veronica, coriander, juniper, calamus, origanum dictamnus, nutmeg and others. The green colour accrues from the chlorophyll of pontica, hyssop, melissa and mint.
