    It's in 0.7L of alcohol. :/ What brand or type should I then be looking at, if I want to feel something besides the alcohol?

    Well there is this, which has 100mg/l thujone in a 0.7L of alcohol; however, it is priced rather steep at 200 bucks.

    What is a safe level that will get two maybe three people feeling something, even if its a weak effect?

    So, I guess I gave up on the idea of buying absinthe, but I bought some everclear(only 151 proof max in California). I'm still thinking of making a tincture with a wormwood that has a safe amount that still gives you a mild feeling. Therefore, I thought I ask again where can I get some wormwood with thujone to mix with my alcohol? Thanks.

    I think this one is legit :) . Because the absinth essence i use is distilled essential oils from all those herbs listed.. (there are a few extra in my blend.. but i dont think they are related to main effects and stomach calmness .. More in the taste department :).. Good luck !

    But, the question is will that cause some of the desired effects that I am after?

    I am also thinking of getting some hops to add to the mix for flavor and punch. Hmm.

    Edit: after doing a deep search, it seems like that is not really possible to hallucinate with Absinthe or thujone. Some of the talk is myth, while other is marketing hype, but Absinthe, as I have noticed in the past does give you more of a lucid drunk. Interesting nonetheless.

    What's your weed/damiana ratio per bag or hit? for every .1 or .2 of weed, how much damiana do you put?

    Also i bought oils for inhalation but it only says to put a few drops in hot water then add a towel to cover your head and inhale. I tried vaporizing these with as little as 2 drops and even at 130 C it felt like i was eating bath soap. Are they ok to vaporize? I saw you mentioned earlier that oils are bad for the lungs, but these are to be inhaled, so i'm just wondering if i'm doing something wrong. I got lemongrass, frankincense and thyme all ogranic essential oils.

    Are these safe to use in a vaporizer?

    Oil make mess on vaporizer, also it delivers a too concentrated hit.. One drop essential oil ussually comes from a lot of material.. I don't know what is the ratio i use.. I don't even mix them any more since i got my foggylicious underdog vaporizer. But i can imagine that 50/50 ratio is fine :) . Vaping only damiana is fine too.. it delivers a punch for sure :).
    Use essential oils in your bath tub , or in large vessel with a lot of water ..
    Some oils are so powerful that can fully substitute most of the mean synthetic drugs ..
    MDMA is made from safrole in safrass oil :p.
    You basicly can experience lsd/mescaline/xtc effects off basil oil,clary sage oil,elemicin,wormwood,taragon,
    dill oil , parsley oil ..
    check the herb max forum .. Those dudes are wise trippers ! With the proper inhibition (cayene pepper,cinnamon,CHAMOMILE) you can make your self one of the numerous mixture called OILHUASCAs :)

    Has anyone tried the Super Chillem Herbal Incense blend. Everyonedoesit.com are giving packets of this stuff away for free at the moment and I've never tried a legal blend. I'm wondering what it's like, does it taste good? Is it a good high? Any thoughts or reviews would be welcome.

    I recently bought myself a Vapir NO2 and have found myself exploring the wide world of entheogens, particularly phsycoactives and dream herbs. It would be my first time so I'm gathering as much info as possible on pratically everything I can google. But what I find is that most sites and forums talk alot and there is always mixed info and such. What I'm more interested in is a list of Legal or Accessible herbs/plants, their vaping temps, and their effects. Any info you could give me would be an amazing help. Thanks.

    Hey guys, new to vaporizing. Got some valerian to see if it helps my insomnia.

    I have the Da Vinci portable vaporizer and I set the temp at the default 375F for the valerian. After about 2 hits, the third was a hot burning disgusting taste...

    The question I have because I am new to this, is that the taste that lets me know that little bowl is finished? And is it normal for Valerian to finish that quickly? Is Cannabis longer lasting in the bowl?

    Why not try scaling the temp back? I've seen sources stating valerian starts to vaporize at 348F. The burning taste suggests you started too high also.

    Abysmal, you got me interested in those oilhuascas. :D

    so, according to your numerous posts, a good start would be something like:

    - elemi oil
    -basil oil
    -white sage oil
    - cinammon oil or another enhancer

    and to vape:

    - damiana
    - indian warrior

    Im curious though, do you drink the oilhuasca? and do you boil it first? Or is it just used in the bath tub and breathe the vapors?

    with all of the herbs listed on the first page, can you vape them alone? do they give u an effect of some sort or are they just a great flavor adder to pot?

    Different effects from different substances I suppose... not to mention different medicinal benefits from reading about them.

    I've yet to personally experiment with ethnobotanicals (finances & injuries), but certainly intend to based on findings I've read.

    Trying some white sage leaves in my vape right now. I ground up some loose leaves and packed the vape full. From a distance the sage smells really good, but up close it smells a little funky. I smell a slight gym sock under note. Luckily it tastes very different. Its minty, herby, and really light; hard to describe. I definitely notice some effects from vaporizing it at 300 degrees, I'm going to try smoking it later.

    I feel relaxed, light, and feel surprisingly good. I did a couple dabs about 4 hours ago and i feel lifted again. The rest will definitly not go to waste. I'm using a freshly cleaned vape, in fact this is the first I've vaped since I started dabbing.

    I'm thinking about ordering blue lotus petals and stamens to mix with the sage. Trying to make a simple herbal blend to vape before bed since weed doesn't seem to help me sleep anymore.
    Anybody know any reputable online vendors?

    Edit: effects were very short and mild. Will definitely mix well with other herbs

    Anybody ever vaped grind up dried Belladonna seeds?
    Or something like dried Amanita Muskaria?
    And what about this one ???

    I wonder what effect they will have when vaped (if possible) as they are mostly used for their psychotropic properties.

    I find vaped sages makes my LB smell like sausage? Odd but true lol. I highly enjoy chamomile and lemon balm. Looking to try Passion flower this week. There are many plants I'd like to try but are only available in tincture form.

    Do you guys know anything about Reishi mushrooms ?

    I'm got some on pill form (50% red reishi extract / 50% reishi powder) as a freebee from a organic food company, I have been their customer for years (coco flower sugar blocks)

    It seems to have a strong effect. I wasn't expecting something from a simple alimentary complement but I definitely feel things. I took one yesterday and another one today. It seems to make a synergy with our medication. Last night I remember getting asleep real easier than I'm used to. I get visual effects too, deformations, stuff like that
