    I was wondering the same thing but I was afraid that if I asked, someone would answer.

    ^ It's the age-old PE question: "What is a Spirit?"
    "If you want to see the true nature of humanity, just look at the internet."

    My personal fave is Amer 72. A palatable recipe with 35mg/kg. [url]https://www.absinthes.comO

    Are US Thujone levels permitted really less than the EU?


    Maximum thujone levels in the EU are: 0.5 mg/kg in food prepared with Artemisia species, excluding those prepared with sage and non alcoholic beverages. 10 mg/kg in alcoholic beverages not prepared with Artemisia species. 25 mg/kg in food prepared with sage.
