An alcoholic beverage made with Artemisia absinthium (See) containing:
Ethanol (Ethyl Alcohol)
Thujone
Artemisia absinthium (Wormwood)

Absinthe is historically described as a distilled, highly alcoholic (45%-74% ABV) beverage. It is an anise-flavoured spirit derived from herbs, including the flowers and leaves of the herb Artemisia absinthium, commonly referred to as "grande wormwood". Absinthe traditionally has a natural green colour but can also be colourless. Although it is sometimes mistakenly called a liqueur, absinthe is not bottled with added sugar and is therefore classified as a spirit. Absinthe is unusual among spirits in that it is bottled at a very high proof but is normally diluted with water when consumed. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Absinthe)

In large doses or frequently repeated doses, the extract is a narcotic poison, causing headache, restlessness, vomiting, vertigo, trembling and convulsions (absinthism). May cause gastrointestinal symptoms, nervousness, stupor, coma and death. These symptoms are due to the presence of Thujone. (See) Acute renal failure. Convulsions (See: Thujone)
