Sorry for another poppy tea thread, but this is something that has been running through my head for a while now. I was gonna post it in the poppy tea mega-thread but I figured I'd get a better answer here.
Anyways, poppy tea and poppy seed tea seem to give a high which lasts almost all day. From what I've read, Morphine is the most active chemical in the tea. Codeine is also present in small amounts. These seems to give poppy tea it's psychoactivity. I don't think the other Opiates such as Thebaine and Papaverine contribute a whole lot to the high (maybe besides a slight stimulant effects).
So if Morphine is the major active and it's half life is 2-3 hours, why the hell does Poppy tea's high last so much longer then say oral Morphine?
One of the reasons I'm asking is because I'd like to dose my Suboxone appropriately. I know you don't have to wait too long after oral Morphine, but I feel that I have to wait much longer after poppy tea because the high lasts so much longer.
Thanks in advance for your replies.
