You can find legit absinthe in the US now, try searching some online marketplaces, many of them ship to the US now that the law was changed
You can find American made absinthe that is good, though they typically contain less wormwood/thujone than their European counterparts

Thujone was never at a psychoactive amount in the first place.

Only some has wormwood with thujone and I. The UD you can have 10 pm of thujone instead of 30 ppm in Europe. Kubler makes one for the US and EU but it's also a lower abv so you can drink more and experience the absinthe effect. I wanna try European kubler so bad but I don't know where...

This! It's long been a goal of mine to make a legit reflux still and make genuine absinthe but it's not super simple what with the space needed for a still and managing it without making a bunch of methanol ladened shit that makes you blind

you toss the first and last bit of what comes out of the still in quantities relative to the batch size youre running. People have been shining for years. youre just making excuses for yourself

>>287427 A Real reflux still isnt very hard to make, especially if you have already made a still for normal ethanol, getting it to correctly infuse is harder but once you have it set up you can run mash through as many times as it takes to get it all right.
>>287430 is a great rule of thumb and I still go by this when I distill, normally the first 5% or 10% depending on the starting mash which is overestimating by a decent margin, (though I still use it for sanitizing). The whole methanol debacle is typically pointless and boils down to prohibition myths from when speakeasys would dilute shine with cheaper and more available wood alcohol to stretch supply. Aspartame is broken down into methanol as well and more people have hospitalized from artificial sweeteners in the past 40 years than homebrew hooch, but I dont mind tossing 5oz+ into my medical alcohol container and not worrying about it, or anyone drinking with me. If you can make a normal still a reflux isnt much more work or space, and is the best way to get absinthe in america, especially as >>287464 describes. Starting with normal spirits of any sort and using a reflux is one of the best ways to go if you arent set on the traditional way its made.
