Default Buying Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) that is best for mead brewing?

I am looking to buy wormwood but I am interested to know which kind would be the best for brewing mead? Does anyone use it here in their mead brewing?

I bought some from Midwest Brewing Supplies to use in a braggot. It seems like some of the large brewing supply stores carry it, for reasonable prices (I think it was 2-3$ for two ounces).
I didn't use very much though--only 1 gram for a gallon batch...didn't want the mead to make me see things. Or poison anybody.

I've gotten it from Penn Herb. Be extremely frugal with it, a tiny bit goes a loonnnggg way, that's for sure.
