I found a great way to extract the active alkaloids from opium poppy seeds.
I took about a pound of Opium poppy seeds, ground them into a fine powder. Soaked this powder in a mixture of water and lemon juice (about enough to cover completly plus an inch) for approx. 3-4 hours. Took this slurry and strained it into a glass cooking pot.
Boiled until the liquid turned into a kind of brown/black paste.
I made sure not to overcook!
I let this gummy mixture (all the good stuff!) sit overnight to further evaporate, and voila! - a crude, but good, smokable 'Opium.' also, if I'm really in a pinch, I can smoke straight opium poppy seeds. I just make sure they're opium poppy seeds.
