Absinthe, the notorious and widely controversial spirit, has been my favorite drink since I first tried it at the age of 19 in Canada.
But it wasn’t until last year that I was possessed with the thought of Absinthe infused with cannabis. I mulled over which strain to select for both optimal strain specific flavors and mind altering effects. And then finally it hit me: LSD.
This strain has an extremely high concentration of THC, which makes the effects extremely cerebral and psychoactive. LSD’s psychedelic effect is both euphoric and vivid on the mind. While it produces good pain relief on the body, users will find themselves lost in colors, music, food, people, or anything they find stimulating. LSD offers a deep earthy and woodsy flavor with hints of musk and sweetness. In my opinion, this is one of the best strains to pair to Absinthe for not just the medicinal qualities, but also the flavors. The flavor profiles of LSD deepen and amplify the taste of the wormwood, fennel, and anise. With each sip, you will be lulled into the Green Fairy’s realm and find the following effects: creativity, euphoria, pain relief, perspective, relief from nausea, relief from headaches, release of tension in the neck, lucidness, and deep introspection.
One word of caution with people who are sensitive to cerebral highs: do not drink too much. This strains effects paired with Absinthe may produce anxiety or a false sense of being overwhelmed in whatever situation you find yourself.
