    papaver somniferum

    Hey Guys, If one was to purchase any of the papaver somniferum seeds available here, would one be able to make opium tea from the poppy that is grown? Or is there a speicifc varitiey of papaver somniferum that you need for this that has any decent level of the required alkaloid? I appreciate its illegal to grow poppy for non floral reasons and I of course would never knowingly break the law. This is purely for research and educational reasons. To save incrimination, by all means send me a private message. Thanks Sante

    poppy season has started?

    i once discovered something about poppies i would like to share, naturaly i was residing in a country where the considerate use of poppies is quite legal... with poppies one has basicly two options, either to cook them, or to lance/bleed them and than cook them, after scraping off the raw opium. raw opium is incredible stuff, but the problem is that, lancing in many climats does not only produce only tiny ammounts of opium, it's aswell an action hard to pull thru, as it rises not only suspicion, but you have to come back to the heads aswell to scrape them, in short a lot of fuzz with lot's of risks. the proposed methode, is to cut of the heads and to milk them at home. problem is though that often, hardly any milk will be produced. but milk production can be increased a plentyfull by surrounding the heads with hot water!!! so all you do is, to cut the stem with a razorblade close to the head, and place the head in a dish (poppy heads will stand very secure if placed up side down! now if it bleeds, take the head and place the drop on a piece of alu foil, if not or just too little and not worth a collection, put it onto the dish. after a while when your dish is full of upside down turned poppy heads (oh what a lovly sight ) you pour hot water with the kettle into the dish, and voila suddenly the poppy heads which refused to yield any milk before, will start to bleed! now take them one by one and collect the drips onto the alufoil. collecting onto the alufoil, has not only the advantage of not having to mess around with scraping, but aswell allowes the collection of small ammount of milk, by pressing the clean straight cut, onto the level tinfoil. now you can if necessary fold the alufoil a bit so that all the milk collects at the centre, than just let it dry. some sources say opium is only good if dried by the sun, well if you believe this put the foil somewhere save, but into the direct sunlight. only downside is that you can only milk them on this day, and not like professionals on 3 or more days in a row. but this doesn't realy pose an issue because, most poppies grown in our areas will not bleed much anyway, as mentioned before. but anyway, either water your poppies, before bleeding, or choose a time to do "the home bleeding" after good rains, as this increases milk flow.
