I got ahold of some wormwood at a pagan/newage/wicca shop. It is a ground mixture of leaf and wood material. I smoked a couple of bowls and it tasted absolutely disgusting and made my throat feel like I was swallowing razors. I figured out that I should pick out all the wood chunks (duh!). With just the leaf material it was a LOT easyer to smoke and didn't hurt my throat anymore. It took about five to six bowls before I noticed any effect, but once I did feel it it was quite pleasent. However it was still rather unpleasant to smoke. My first question is: Does anyone know of a plant/herb (other than weed or tobaco) that I could mix with the wormwood that would give it a nicer taste and a smoother smoke? Hopefully something that is easy to obtain, like at the sort of shop I got the wormwood. Second, I have heard that you can make a tea out of wormwood. Does any one know what plant/water ratio I should use, how long I should let it steep, Etc.? Also, it seems to be leaving a resin in my bowl. Is this worth scraping and smoking like pot resin? Is it more potent than the plant material? Thanks for any help.
