Even so, thujone in this plant is an gama-aminobutyric acid (GABA: a limiter agent, which operates in neural system and brain) inhibitor and in high dose or continiously use by long period would change functions of brain. Maybe those were spirits with high content of wormwood or even another herbs with hallucinogenic effect.
