Since wormwood contains thujone, a chemical similar to tetratetrahydrocannibinol (THC) which is found in marijuana, the FDA has placed wormwood in the unsafe category. It has been reported that thujone may cause nerve damage and other side effects. Do not take if you are pregnant. Take only in small doses and for no more than 4-5 weeks at a stretch. Consult with a healthcare professional or doctor of herbal medicine.
