View Full Version : (opioids) Can poppy latex be directly smoked?

And can it be gathered once the pods have been snipped off the plant? Or can you only harvest the latex if the pods are still attached?

i don't think the latex will "ooze" out if they've been snipped off the stalks. i could be wrong though.

you could put the pods in between pieces of wax paper and roll them hard with a rolling pin. i'd assume any juice that comes out would be opium laden.

I'm not sure about it but i imagine you could slice some grooves in some poppy bulbs that are off the plant but I personally dunno, It is best of course to cut slices in a poppy bulb while still on the poppy plant and let it ooze out over night.They usaully at least let the opium gum/latex dry in the sun and most cook it in boiling water and add slaked lime to the boiling pot and the opium will rise to the top and is then dried in the sun.I'm sure you could replicate this at home with a big cooking pot on a stove , and i dunno where you would get the slaked lime but anyway,look it up on erowid or something , and if you find something to cook it off with and then it bubbles to the top,get a metal strainer(like for draining spaghetti noodles ) and then dry it in the sunlight in a window or outside depending on where you live and maybe use a heat lamp to dry it if it's wet outside....dunno much about home/small scale opium refining and harvest but I have seen/ and read all about it at the larger level like in asia or somewhere they grow opium and they smoke it ...anyway hope this helps somehow..

no, you can't just smoke the raw stuff. Make tea!
