  seeds oral Poppies - Opium (tea)


[Erowid Note: Because opiate use can lead to significant tolerance (requiring higher doses for the same effects), the dose used by a first time user is significantly smaller than that used by a regular user. It can be extremely dangerous to choose ones dose on the basis of the amount taken by someone else. Overdoses of opiates can be fatal.]

I have received constantly powerful results with the dried pods. They are wonderful. However, I had saved the seeds to a tremendous amount and decided to try some tea from the seeds.

I lined a large mixing bowl with 3 paper towels (still attached), leaving the ends extended over the sides of the bowl to later fold across the top of the seeds and keep them from pouring out with the liquid. I more than half filled the bowl with seeds. I heated a full cup of lemon juice and 1 cup of water to boil, then poured it over the seeds. Well... That disappeared. So, I heated another cup of water to boil and added it to the seeds. This time, the liquid appeared near the top of the seeds.

I let it set, perhaps, a half hour. It seemed to have congealed into a blob of muck. But, when I placed my hand over the towel covering and tipped the bowl, out poured an oily-looking, cream-yellow liquid into another container. I put this aside and repeated the boiling lemon-water, though it took only 1.5 cups to cover the seeds, this time... Let it set a half hour... Drained it from the towel-wrapped seeds into another container.

This time, the liquid appeared to have dissolved less substance. I drank the first container of liquid, which amounted to about 1.5 cups from the first 3 cups. It's taste was strongly lemon and poppy seed, not at all pleasant, then waited a half hour.

Nothing happened, so I drank the remainder. Still nothing happened. NOTHING. I know my tolerance is a little higher than most people's.

Yet, I feel mild euphoria from two Vicodin, so my tolerance is not incredibly extreme. There's nothing blissful to be had from seeds.
