5.3 oz oral Poppies - Opium (tea)


After the kids went to bed I called my husband who was away on business. He was unwinding with alcohol and a bit of marijuana and asked if I was ready to do the same. I wasn't. I had my eye on the baggie of bulk poppy seeds sitting with my baking goods.

I finished my bottle of water, funneled the seeds in and covered them with a few tablespoons of lemon juice and a cup of water. After about 20 minutes of shaking I used my fine mesh strainer and poured the liquid into a tumbler cup. Flavored with a packet of sugar free lemonade I held my nose and drank the liquid down. I popped a spoon of peanut butter into my mouth before releasing my nose...a trick I learned back in my days of agent lemon DXM extraction.

I took my cell to bed and waited for the effects to kick in. The reading I had done said it would be an hour. After 15 minutes I started getting horribly bad stomach cramps. I spent the next hour with my brain relaxed, my neck stiff and my stomach in knots. It was odd and all I wanted to do was find the 'sweet spot' in bed that would alleviate the stomach pain.

I went to the Internet to find that the heavy dinner I had that night was probably the culprit of the pain. Remembering that hard candy helps to produce saliva and to get the intestines moving I scavenged for lollipops. The next two hours were entirely blissful...just snuggled in bed watching TV and texting my husband.

I closed my eyes to fall asleep and had a few light CEVs before drifting to sleep. I woke up a few times through the night, but it was very easy to roll right over and fall back asleep. Woke up with the kids for school with a pleasant body load which is where I currently sit. I'll probably enjoy a few cups of (normal, regular) tea before going about my daily activities.
