There are several brands available here in the states that are the real stuff.
Don't believe any BS claims about thujone content. Chemical analysis on pre-ban absnithes has shown that most of them would pass under current regulations.
If it's thujone you want, just munch on some common sage. It has more thujone than wormwood. As for absinthe, it's anywhere from 100 to 140 proof . The alcohol will kill you before you start tripping.
