Unless you grow your own poppies, and get the opium from those or you know central, western, or south Asians, you may be getting black tar heroin. Jerry Garcia of the dead thought he was smoking opium and it turned out to be Persian heroin. Opium is very easy to overdose on. A friend of mine he took opium once but he lived with a man from Iran who sold it at the time in the 1970s. My friend ate it and got super high from it.

I've only tried opium once, orally. Felt pretty much what I expected a codeine/morphine combo would feel like. And tasted way worse than I anticipated, would not make the mistake of chewing it again.

DISCLAIMER

The dosages used in this thread are very high compared to typical dosage ranges described in literature. This may either be due to a weak product or my god-given morphine tolerance. Ever since I've first taken morphine which was one of the first opiates I've tried I've had lackluster experiences both in terms of quality and expected intensity. Without any sub-acutely acquired tolerance I usually feel threshold effects at 30mg rectally administered morphine sulfate and have intravenously injected doses that could kill an elephant - at zero acquired tolerance. Very surprising considering as little as 100mg Tramadol can send me into a heavy nod.

Just be aware that when trying new opiates you should start off low in order to avoid respiratory issues. This not only goes for opiates, but for all other drugs and plant extracts in particular!



INTRODUCTION

Greetings fellow polytoxicomanics!

Since there isn't that much information about opium around and a lot of experience reports seem to be based on substances that were wrongfully passed off as opium, I am gonna make this a long and elaborate experience report which will include some background information not necessarily. Feel free to skip the entire prequel since it's void of useful information about opium.

I've been meaning to get ahold of Opium since 2006 when I declined a casual gift of roughly 10g of what was most definitely genuine opium considering who offered it to me. It was during one of those weeks when I decided I would never ever do drugs again and I've been feeling a bit of regret over it until recently. Since I'm not in the drug scene and don't have any intentions to change that, most of my friends do not use drugs at all or very rarely, let alone sell them.

So I gave word out in the past year to everyone who could possibly score some or has known people in possession of it in the past, to no avail. Eventually I kicked it up a notch and told people that I am really determined to get some and that they could buy 200?‚? worth without consulting me first if they ever come across it.

It so happened that the sister of a pretty close friend told me there is a store dedicated to shamanism that sells it openly along with a long list of other drugs. The day she was gonna pick it up another friend came up and told me he found somebody he's known for many years to whom he fronted the sum I named. So basically this wasn't great news since 400?‚? is a lot of money to me, but hey - it looked like I'd finally get a taste. The taste is what I was really after, since I'm not that big into opiates.



PREQUEL - THE FRAUD

So my friend's sister - let's call her Jenny - went to the shamanism shop along with a friend of hers who had actually bought pot, mushrooms and opium from them before. Both of them are 19 years of age. They know a whole lot more about drugs than the average 19 year old user, but are obviously not as well-versed as guys like us.

The 'business shaman' asked 80 Euros per gram, leading me to believe it must be really good. We met at the central station and Jenny handed me the alleged opium. It was black, shiny and had a grainy texture to it. It was extremely sticky and due to this property could not be rolled into a ball. I was happy as a log and eager to get home.As she left us and I smelled the substance I was immediately reminded of Sceletium Tortuosum extract. Considering everyone who has had genuine opium claims it has a unique smell that one will never forget, I had my first doubts about the authenticity of the product that was now in my possession. When I tasted it and realized it is not bitter in the least, but instead extremely salty, almost as if it contained a lot of NaCl, I was a tad confused.

These doubts grew and grew as we drove home. Why would anyone sell genuine opium publicly? He was said to have several kg stocked, it just sounded unlikely he will keep those in a public store. With the legal issues in mind there's just no reason to keep that much stocked in the same place he sells it.

I still wanted to believe I had the real deal and loaded 100mg into a meth pipe. It did evaporate and eventually lost most of it's volume before it turned into a hard residue.
After I had gone through 500mg using this technique and still felt nothing but a subtle dizziness from the constant sucking on the pipe, already a tad angry at this point, but still in denial I tried to blame my technique and decided I would eat a large amount to make sure it really isn't what I had hoped it would be. I ended up drinking an aqueous solution of the remaining 2g in two doses of equal size, spaced less than an hour apart and was now sure I had been ripped off.

I wasn't sure which way to go, but knew the crooked business shaman would not get away with this. I was going to keep them out of it best I can, but to my surprise Jenny and her friend were eager to go as well. Who wants to be ripped off, right?

After almost two weeks we managed to squeeze it into our busy schedules ;) and went down there to get the money back. It turned out he sells pot as well, so I knew we had him by the balls and the whole thing wouldn't take long. I've always been told that I look like a straight-edge philistine type of person - a 'square' I guess. Ironed shirts, nice shows, healthy tan on the darker side and athletic (not bulky) body, always well-groomed and -scented.

We were asked to sit down and when the pseudo shaman arrived and we introduced ourselves I put the container on the table and asked him what the substance was. After telling him of the lack of effect the stuff had and him showing me his poppy plants of which he makes the 'opium', it became clear he would not compensate us. I got out my cellphone dialed 911 while making sure he could see the display and magically got my 200 Euros back. Things might've turned much messier, had he called my bluff.
I thought about extorting another 1000?‚?, but decided he may just believe what he is selling does indeed contain an sufficient amount of opiates. Instead I told the scumbag who never even asks for ID that the girl he sold it to was not 18 when she bought the material and threw some scare tactics at him so he would have to close shop for some time before he could be sure his place wouldn't be raided by the authorities.

I felt really fucking relieved after that, was happy to have my money back and even happier imagining how the business shaman and his two side-kicks were most definitely into in panic while clearing their store of equally over-priced illicit drugs.

It pained me to hear he was still selling drugs without even asking for an ID when Jenny told me he gave a single fucking mushroom to two of her friends at an unbeatable asking price of 120?‚?. Godamn crook.

So don't be fooled people, opium is usually scarce in the Western World and there are plenty of people without access to it who exploit that fact!



THE REAL DEAL

The other friend took another 2 weeks to finally get ahold of the opium which was originally said to cost 40?‚? per gram. With all the driving back and forth through Northern Germany, going through the trouble of being interviewed in highly sceptical fashion by his contact, I ended up paying roughly 70?‚? per gram or 350?‚? total for 5g. I was extremely grateful since he tore him self another asshole to fulfill my burning desire to try opium. "I am gonna get it done, if it's last thing I do!" is what he said.

It was an old Iranian guy who sold the opium and he seemed to have only sold it because he realized how important this was to us. Surprisingly he gave him the choice to get opium that is either best suited for oral use or best suited for vaporization. He called these two "smoking opium" and "eating-opium", terms which I had heard before but not in literature. One came from Iran and the other straight from Afghanistan if memory serves correctly. I wanted the "smoking-opium" since it was all about experiencing that allegedly unique and unforgettable taste, even though it was claimed to be slightly weaker than the kind used for oral use.

So the night finally arrived when my friend knocked on the door and handed me the long-sought goodies. After some hugs and kisses I removed the outer cellophane layer. I was slightly confused by how shiny the product was and actually asked whether this or not this was "already it". :D

It looked so shiny and smooth that I thought there might be another cellophane paper wrapped around it. It wasn't dark brown as some people describe, but pitch black. The blackest black I've ever seen. It smelled anything but unfamiliar. In fact it smelled exactly like the resin inside Papaver Rhoeas poppy pods and that of all other kinds of poppy I have smelled. It was neither beguiling, nor repulsive, not the kind olfactory sensation I had expected, but still very recognizable for sure. There was no doubt in my mind that what I was holding was indeed genuine imported opium.

I was recommended to put it into the freezer into a small glass along with a desiccant, since opium is hard will shatter relatively easily when cool, but will rapidly turn soft and sticky at room-temperature. When it is soft you can pull it apart to form some very long strings unlike hash or cannabis oil which will lose it's integrity soon upon being pulled apart.



INHALATION

The two vaporization techniques most people seemed to recommend were either putting heat under a meth pipe or an aluminum foil with the opium in or on it respectively, thereby avoiding exposition of the resinous drug to excessively high temperatures in order to avoid for it to fall victim to thermal decomposition.

Due to the health strain of chasing off aluminum foil I started off putting 100mg into a meth pipe. Alas the glass seemed to be too thick for the flame of the lighter to cause the product inside the glass bulb to evaporate. I wasn't happy about that since I had heard either technique would work very well, but as I've never had such great experiences with that pipe I was not particularly worried about being disappointed yet again and switched to aluminum foil, using a plastic straw to inhale the vapor.

The actual vapor initially tastes and smells very similar to the raw product, but with rising heat takes on an entirely different quality.
When this happened I finally found out why I had heard so many references to the smell of opium. I was instantly enchanted, felt my mind transported to scenarios like a hike in the mountains of distant lands or sitting at a bonfire with friends while heating bread on sticks over it. Magical.

I will try to describe the associations that came to mind:
- 45% Fermented and dried pork or beef like Salami sausage, leaning a wee bit towards smoked meat
- 35% Licorice
- 10% Bonfire
- 5% Resin of Conifers
- 5% Burnt Plastic

It's safe to assume that there is some variance between the aromas given off by different kinds of opium, considering how time-consuming and elaborate the process of manufacturing is and how many naturally occurring microorganisms are involved in it. My nose is far from perfect and I usually have a hard time pointing out single components in complex scents and flavors like those of wine, cannabis, whisky or coffee. So I am sure there are plenty of other nuances you might perceive.

What's certain is that it's an extremely complex yet recognizable smell that will surely repel some and attract others. My wife initially liked the smell, but at one point compared it to shit. She is easily bothered by smells, but doesn't perceive this one as bothersome, albeit not entirely pleasant either. Everyone I've seen in the past week felt compelled to ponder what it reminds them off. It is not surprising that most people can not say whether or not they like the smell since it is so overwhelmingly novel to the opium naive nose. On one hand smelling it is a strange sensation, almost alienating, but on the other hand it can still give rise to a lot of familiar imagery and associations.

When the flame hit the foil, the opium very rapidly turned liquid, running down the foil like oil, changing the color from black to brown while beginning to boil before it gradually lost volume until it turned to a hard resin. This process took quite some time and it was necessary to heat a piece of 100mg north of twenty times because not removing the flame between inhalations would would just waste a lot of material.

The smoke is surprisingly smooth on the lungs, I only coughed a couple of times when I inhaled large amounts. Such large inhalations left behind a slightly bitter taste in my mouth.

However after I had smoked 400mg I still wasn't sure if I felt anything at all. There was no rush like some people seem to report. You can imagine my anxiety about the whole ordeal, considering I had spent 350?‚? for those 5g and had previously been ripped off by another person. Gradually though I started recognizing familiar effects as they slowly crept up on me. It may have only been the excitement, but I could not sit still for a minute and was talking a lot. Looking in the mirror my pupils were not constricted though or only slightly so. I decided I would need to eat the drug (report continues in 'ORAL USE').

On a side note: When an acquaintance from university who is a medical doctor and passionate IV speedball user happened to visit me and was given a pinhead-sized amount off foil in order for him to experience the taste, he claimed to feel the effects within seconds. Very odd, but he knows his shit!

I eventually stopped using it this way since oral use seems to cause stronger effects that last significantly longer. Compared to eating the drug rectal administration seemed to allow me to cut the dosage down by another 50% and causes more intense euphoria due to a higher speed of absorption, but alas does not last nearly as long.

However since the taste can only be experienced when inhaling the substance, I started putting it into joints which is quite easy. Like I had described earlier you can pull a piece of opium into strings. I simply do that and then split them up to shorter string which I put on top of the pot, tobacco or a mix of both before rolling it up. However since it will turn liquid before evaporating, the opium will not stay in place while you smoke the joint. It will then become hard again and may shut down the airflow altogether. To avoid that you will need to roll a really thick non-conic joint.



ORAL USE
CONTAINS A DESCRIPTION OF THE EFFECTS


Assuming the disappointing effects of the 400mg Opium that I had smoked were due to my technique, but not entirely sure of it, I prepared some boiling water and dissolved 500mg in it. It takes a while to dissolve and if you're in a hurry to get high you are better off shattering a cold piece of opium first before dropping it into the water. Actually, forget what I said. Don't dissolve it, just swallow the opium. I've done it plenty of times now and it works very well. It might be absorbed more rapidly when in solution, but it will also taste extremely bitter. I've tasted a lot of bitter extracts, teas, chemicals and this ranks pretty high up there. Even a pinpoint-sized amount on your tongue will give off a very bitter taste that will linger around. Nothing too awful, but the solution was absolutely disgusting.

I drank about half of this solution immediately after stirring it to make sure not all the solids remain in the glass. While waiting for it to kick in I soon realized the effects of the inhaled opium were apparently still building up. It had been roughly 20-30min since I smoked it. I consumed the remaining solution roughly two hours later.

Until a whopping three hours after drinking the remaining liquid the effects became more and more pronounced. My GI tract usually absorbs most substances very quickly and I strongly doubt it is different with opium. No matter how I consume it, the effects will always build up over the course of several hours.

It is noteworthy that there seem to be two phases to the effects with a fluent transition from one to the other and some aspects of the initial effects carrying over to the tail-end. With higher dose the difference between the first and second phase becomes less pronounced. Drowsiness and side effects will kick in much sooner and be more pronounced. The pleasure in doing physical work is diminished.
I am not very educated about the various alkaloids in Papaver Somniferum, how the opium manufacturing process with the microorganisms might induce chemical changes, which active metabolites there are of the various alkaloids, let alone at what rate they fall victim to the respective enzymes and which ones compete with each other. I imagine the pharmacodynamics of such a drug cocktail to be extremely complex and little about it to be understood. Correct me if I'm wrong.
However this two-step intoxication is very likely attributable to metabolic processes first and foremost. Keep in mind that I am very insensitive to morphine, so a strong morphine component may be lacking from the early effects. It would serve as a partial explanation why I come up so slowly while other people experience instant effects off inhaled opium.

During the first phase I experience pure stimulation which did feel vaguely familiar to me, slightly reminiscent of what some opiates do to me. However had I not known what drug I took I would probably not have guessed it to be an opiate. My naturally high desire to talk increases even further, I am unable to sit still for more than a few seconds since I keep thinking of things I meant to do or say.
I enjoy both working out and doing heavy physical work which carries on through most of the second phase. Exhaustion never really sets in and I can enjoy myself doing things like shoveling sand, digging holes, planting bushes, cleaning the house, painting a staircase and the like for hours on end! Soon the lack of focus, racing thoughts and the motoric hyperactivity makes way to a much more clear-headed and focused stimulation which improves the experience of physical work even further.

I do not find most opioidergic drugs other than Tramadol euphoric and perceive some as quite dysphoric (Hydromorphone, Tilidine), others as neutral (Fentanyl, Oxycodone, Codeine). While morphine is slightly euphoric for me, I get heavy side effects at the needed dose (nausea and pruritus) and it's generally not worth it.
Opium though causes significantly stronger euphoria and lacks the brutal histaminergic side effects of very high morphine and codeine doses.

I had previously heard that Opium carries a whole lot of unpleasant side effects compared to synthetic or isolated opiates at the same degree pain relief.
I really have to disagree very strongly to this notion!
No other opiate I have taken has such a favorable ratio of desirable to undesirable effects. Very high doses however relativize this.

However, there are obviously some side effects. All of them but the motion sickness (which diminishes with time) increase in intensity as the experience progresses.
- My eyes feel like they are under pressure from the inside, they feel dry and very warm.
- My eyes are completely bloodshot - however pupil constriction is significantly less pronounced than with other opiates.
- My nose, ears and the rest of the face, but also the scrotum feel hot and become quite itchy, particularly the nose (other opiates tend to cause less specific pruritus, exacerbating my seasonal atopical eczema).
- My mouth turns very dry until I speak with a slight lisp.
- My voice is deeper and my speech becomes slurry.
- Constipation is quite pronounced, more so than with any other opiate I've tried. I gained 4kg within a week of use, despite defecating a few times whenever a dose had almost worn off.

Some effects and side effects only occur at very high doses, north of 750mg in my case:
- A feeling of 'walking on clouds' akin to the feeling on the come-up of a large MDMA dose.
- I keep nodding off no matter how hard I try not to. This can become really pronounced towards the end, even when I already feel like the effects are completely gone for many hours. Very strange.
- My head actually feels very heavy.
- Insomnia, I won't be able to sleep for the entire night after a large dose. I tried and tried. I get this on other opiates as well.
- My thoughts become less organized and wander off into strange places. I lack the ability to direct my attention. I also become quite forgetful when this happens.
- Between the peak and tail-end of the plateau (which alone can last 12 hours) of a very large dose I get a certain uneasiness, dysphoria, cravings not unlike those I experience on cocaine or to a lesser degree when I long for a cigarette. While I really just want to relax or sleep, I don't manage to initiate switching activities and fall into this robotic trance-like state during which I'll be doing the same pointless things for hours (think stupid android games), despite wanting to stop and relax. This inability to stop what I am doing even keeps me from re-dosing.



RECTAL USE

The experiences induced by inhalation and rectal administration last equally long. It doesn't make any sense to me yet, but compared to inhaled opium the effects kick in sooner and build up much quicker. Instead of sticking the cold and hard opium directly up my rectum, I dissolve roughly 200mg in 3ml water and add sodium bicarbonate to slightly raise the rectal pH.

T+0:02: First alert
T+0:20: Peak
T+3:00-6:00: Effects are diminishing

As stated earlier, I may still find myself nodding off despite keeping my mind busy, e.g. while sitting in the subway or at the dinner table nod off as late as the next day, even though I have already defecated, don't find my pupils constricted and assume the effects to have been gone for more than ten hours.

- The initial euphoria is much stronger
- I am less talkative
- The stimulating phase is shortened
- Drowsiness becomes more pronounced earlier into the experience.
- Much sharper drop-off towards the end
- The experience lasts roughly 6h compared to 30h after oral administration
- The peak lasts roughly 3h compared to 12h after oral administration



INTRAVENOUS INJECTION

You don't have to tell me what a fucking moron I am for doing this. I know damn well. Since it was today that it happened for the first and hopefully last time, I am currently quite anxious about the risk of infections.
Since I have to give my wife a B12 shot today, we had two needles around. Unfortunately a buddy left some amphetamine with us. Not necessarily a good coincidence, but I had already 'decided' I would use the needle meant for sucking up the B12 for my own agenda.

Now I had been playing with the thought of mainlining opium, but it seemed like an extraordinarily bad idea. However since all the gear was within reach, the question I was asking myself had already been answered. Fuck yeah I'll mainline it. So since needles were limited and I try to never use a needle more than once (I break them off after a shot to make sure), I threw some speed into the mix.

I dissolved 800mg opium in a glass filled with 16cc of water, sucked 2cc equal to 100mg opium into a syringe and squirted it back out onto a table spoon which I stuck horizontally into a sealed cardboard box, so I could heat it from below without jumping and spilling it all in case it would suddenly start boiling violently. I lost way too many drugs like that.

I heated the spoon for at least 2 minutes in case any living microorganisms are present, let it cool, added the stimulant and proceeded to filter the slur in three steps: cotton, 450nm, 220nm, using fresh filters. The resulting liquid was translucent, but still had a reddish brown color.

Upon injection I immediately felt the familiar morphine pins and needles rush, but limited to my scalp this time. I suppose 100mg weren't enough for a full-blown rush. I still felt fantastic for a few minutes and decided I'd sit down to write this report. I hope you could gather some useful information.

Now that the report is finished, I still nod off occasionally. I've gone through 4.5g in the past eight days and all I used today was the intravenous injection of 100mg 9 hours ago, but have only been nodding off the past two hours despite still re-dosing very small amounts of amphetamine. I'd really like to hear an explanation of that.

THE REAL DEAL

The other friend took another 2 weeks to finally get ahold of the opium which was originally said to cost 40?‚? per gram. With all the driving back and forth through Northern Germany, going through the trouble of being interviewed in highly sceptical fashion by his contact, I ended up paying roughly 70?‚? per gram or 350?‚? total for 5g. I was extremely grateful since he tore him self another asshole to fulfill my burning desire to try opium. "I am gonna get it done, if it's last thing I do!" is what he said.

It was an old Iranian guy who sold the opium and he seemed to have only sold it because he realized how important this was to us. Surprisingly he gave him the choice to get opium that is either best suited for oral use or best suited for vaporization. He called these two "smoking opium" and "eating-opium", terms which I had heard before but not in literature. One came from Iran and the other straight from Afghanistan if memory serves correctly. I wanted the "smoking-opium" since it was all about experiencing that allegedly unique and unforgettable taste, even though it was claimed to be slightly weaker than the kind used for oral use.

I was recommended to put it into the freezer into a small glass along with a desiccant, since opium is hard will shatter relatively easily when cool, but will rapidly turn soft and sticky at room-temperature. When it is soft you can pull it apart to form some very long strings unlike hash or cannabis oil which will lose it's integrity soon upon being pulled apart.



INHALATION

The two vaporization techniques most people seemed to recommend were either putting heat under a meth pipe or an aluminum foil with the opium in or on it respectively, thereby avoiding exposition of the resinous drug to excessively high temperatures in order to avoid for it to fall victim to thermal decomposition.

Due to the health strain of chasing off aluminum foil I started off putting 100mg into a meth pipe. Alas the glass seemed to be too thick for the flame of the lighter to cause the product inside the glass bulb to evaporate. I wasn't happy about that since I had heard either technique would work very well, but as I've never had such great experiences with that pipe I was not particularly worried about being disappointed yet again and switched to aluminum foil, using a plastic straw to inhale the vapor.

The actual vapor initially tastes and smells very similar to the raw product, but with rising heat takes on an entirely different quality.
When this happened I finally found out why I had heard so many references to the smell of opium. I was instantly enchanted, felt my mind transported to scenarios like a hike in the mountains of distant lands or sitting at a bonfire with friends while heating bread on sticks over it. Magical.

I will try to describe the associations that came to mind:
- 45% Fermented and dried pork or beef like Salami sausage, leaning a wee bit towards smoked meat
- 35% Licorice
- 10% Bonfire
- 5% Resin of Conifers
- 5% Burnt Plastic

It's safe to assume that there is some variance between the aromas given off by different kinds of opium, considering how time-consuming and elaborate the process of manufacturing is and how many naturally occurring microorganisms are involved in it. My nose is far from perfect and I usually have a hard time pointing out single components in complex scents and flavors like those of wine, cannabis, whisky or coffee. So I am sure there are plenty of other nuances you might perceive.

What's certain is that it's an extremely complex yet recognizable smell that will surely repel some and attract others. My wife initially liked the smell, but at one point compared it to shit. She is easily bothered by smells, but doesn't perceive this one as bothersome, albeit not entirely pleasant either. Everyone I've seen in the past week felt compelled to ponder what it reminds them off. It is not surprising that most people can not say whether or not they like the smell since it is so overwhelmingly novel to the opium naive nose. On one hand smelling it is a strange sensation, almost alienating, but on the other hand it can still give rise to a lot of familiar imagery and associations.

When the flame hit the foil, the opium very rapidly turned liquid, running down the foil like oil, changing the color from black to brown while beginning to boil before it gradually lost volume until it turned to a hard resin. This process took quite some time and it was necessary to heat a piece of 100mg north of twenty times because not removing the flame between inhalations would would just waste a lot of material.

The smoke is surprisingly smooth on the lungs, I only coughed a couple of times when I inhaled large amounts. Such large inhalations left behind a slightly bitter taste in my mouth.

However after I had smoked 400mg I still wasn't sure if I felt anything at all. There was no rush like some people seem to report. You can imagine my anxiety about the whole ordeal, considering I had spent 350?‚? for those 5g and had previously been ripped off by another person. Gradually though I started recognizing familiar effects as they slowly crept up on me. It may have only been the excitement, but I could not sit still for a minute and was talking a lot. Looking in the mirror my pupils were not constricted though or only slightly so. I decided I would need to eat the drug (report continues in 'ORAL USE').

On a side note: When an acquaintance from university who is a medical doctor and passionate IV speedball user happened to visit me and was given a pinhead-sized amount off foil in order for him to experience the taste, he claimed to feel the effects within seconds. Very odd, but he knows his shit!

I eventually stopped using it this way since oral use seems to cause stronger effects that last significantly longer. Compared to eating the drug rectal administration seemed to allow me to cut the dosage down by another 50% and causes more intense euphoria due to a higher speed of absorption, but alas does not last nearly as long.

However since the taste can only be experienced when inhaling the substance, I started putting it into joints which is quite easy. Like I had described earlier you can pull a piece of opium into strings. I simply do that and then split them up to shorter string which I put on top of the pot, tobacco or a mix of both before rolling it up. However since it will turn liquid before evaporating, the opium will not stay in place while you smoke the joint. It will then become hard again and may shut down the airflow altogether. To avoid that you will need to roll a really thick non-conic joint.



ORAL USE
CONTAINS A DESCRIPTION OF THE EFFECTS


Assuming the disappointing effects of the 400mg Opium that I had smoked were due to my technique, but not entirely sure of it, I prepared some boiling water and dissolved 500mg in it. It takes a while to dissolve and if you're in a hurry to get high you are better off shattering a cold piece of opium first before dropping it into the water. Actually, forget what I said. Don't dissolve it, just swallow the opium. I've done it plenty of times now and it works very well. It might be absorbed more rapidly when in solution, but it will also taste extremely bitter. I've tasted a lot of bitter extracts, teas, chemicals and this ranks pretty high up there. Even a pinpoint-sized amount on your tongue will give off a very bitter taste that will linger around. Nothing too awful, but the solution was absolutely disgusting.

I drank about half of this solution immediately after stirring it to make sure not all the solids remain in the glass. While waiting for it to kick in I soon realized the effects of the inhaled opium were apparently still building up. It had been roughly 20-30min since I smoked it. I consumed the remaining solution roughly two hours later.

Until a whopping three hours after drinking the remaining liquid the effects became more and more pronounced. My GI tract usually absorbs most substances very quickly and I strongly doubt it is different with opium. No matter how I consume it, the effects will always build up over the course of several hours.

It is noteworthy that there seem to be two phases to the effects with a fluent transition from one to the other and some aspects of the initial effects carrying over to the tail-end. With higher dose the difference between the first and second phase becomes less pronounced. Drowsiness and side effects will kick in much sooner and be more pronounced. The pleasure in doing physical work is diminished.
I am not very educated about the various alkaloids in Papaver Somniferum, how the opium manufacturing process with the microorganisms might induce chemical changes, which active metabolites there are of the various alkaloids, let alone at what rate they fall victim to the respective enzymes and which ones compete with each other. I imagine the pharmacodynamics of such a drug cocktail to be extremely complex and little about it to be understood. Correct me if I'm wrong.
However this two-step intoxication is very likely attributable to metabolic processes first and foremost. Keep in mind that I am very insensitive to morphine, so a strong morphine component may be lacking from the early effects. It would serve as a partial explanation why I come up so slowly while other people experience instant effects off inhaled opium.

During the first phase I experience pure stimulation which did feel vaguely familiar to me, slightly reminiscent of what some opiates do to me. However had I not known what drug I took I would probably not have guessed it to be an opiate. My naturally high desire to talk increases even further, I am unable to sit still for more than a few seconds since I keep thinking of things I meant to do or say.
I enjoy both working out and doing heavy physical work which carries on through most of the second phase. Exhaustion never really sets in and I can enjoy myself doing things like shoveling sand, digging holes, planting bushes, cleaning the house, painting a staircase and the like for hours on end! Soon the lack of focus, racing thoughts and the motoric hyperactivity makes way to a much more clear-headed and focused stimulation which improves the experience of physical work even further.

I do not find most opioidergic drugs other than Tramadol euphoric and perceive some as quite dysphoric (Hydromorphone, Tilidine), others as neutral (Fentanyl, Oxycodone, Codeine). While morphine is slightly euphoric for me, I get heavy side effects at the needed dose (nausea and pruritus) and it's generally not worth it.
Opium though causes significantly stronger euphoria and lacks the brutal histaminergic side effects of very high morphine and codeine doses.

I had previously heard that Opium carries a whole lot of unpleasant side effects compared to synthetic or isolated opiates at the same degree pain relief.
I really have to disagree very strongly to this notion!
No other opiate I have taken has such a favorable ratio of desirable to undesirable effects. Very high doses however relativize this.

However, there are obviously some side effects. All of them but the motion sickness (which diminishes with time) increase in intensity as the experience progresses.
- My eyes feel like they are under pressure from the inside, they feel dry and very warm.
- My eyes are completely bloodshot - however pupil constriction is significantly less pronounced than with other opiates.
- My nose, ears and the rest of the face, but also the scrotum feel hot and become quite itchy, particularly the nose (other opiates tend to cause less specific pruritus, exacerbating my seasonal atopical eczema).
- My mouth turns very dry until I speak with a slight lisp.
- My voice is deeper and my speech becomes slurry.
- Constipation is quite pronounced, more so than with any other opiate I've tried. I gained 4kg within a week of use, despite defecating a few times whenever a dose had almost worn off.

Some effects and side effects only occur at very high doses, north of 750mg in my case:
- A feeling of 'walking on clouds' akin to the feeling on the come-up of a large MDMA dose.
- I keep nodding off no matter how hard I try not to. This can become really pronounced towards the end, even when I already feel like the effects are completely gone for many hours. Very strange.
- My head actually feels very heavy.
- Insomnia, I won't be able to sleep for the entire night after a large dose. I tried and tried. I get this on other opiates as well.
- My thoughts become less organized and wander off into strange places. I lack the ability to direct my attention. I also become quite forgetful when this happens.
- Between the peak and tail-end of the plateau (which alone can last 12 hours) of a very large dose I get a certain uneasiness, dysphoria, cravings not unlike those I experience on cocaine or to a lesser degree when I long for a cigarette. While I really just want to relax or sleep, I don't manage to initiate switching activities and fall into this robotic trance-like state during which I'll be doing the same pointless things for hours (think stupid android games), despite wanting to stop and relax. This inability to stop what I am doing even keeps me from re-dosing.



RECTAL USE

The experiences induced by inhalation and rectal administration last equally long. It doesn't make any sense to me yet, but compared to inhaled opium the effects kick in sooner and build up much quicker. Instead of sticking the cold and hard opium directly up my rectum, I dissolve roughly 200mg in 3ml water and add sodium bicarbonate to slightly raise the rectal pH.

T+0:02: First alert
T+0:20: Peak
T+3:00-6:00: Effects are diminishing

As stated earlier, I may still find myself nodding off despite keeping my mind busy, e.g. while sitting in the subway or at the dinner table nod off as late as the next day, even though I have already defecated, don't find my pupils constricted and assume the effects to have been gone for more than ten hours.

- The initial euphoria is much stronger
- I am less talkative
- The stimulating phase is shortened
- Drowsiness becomes more pronounced earlier into the experience.
- Much sharper drop-off towards the end
- The experience lasts roughly 6h compared to 30h after oral administration
- The peak lasts roughly 3h compared to 12h after oral administration



INTRAVENOUS INJECTION

You don't have to tell me what a fucking moron I am for doing this. I know damn well. Since it was today that it happened for the first and hopefully last time, I am currently quite anxious about the risk of infections.
Since I have to give my wife a B12 shot today, we had two needles around. Unfortunately a buddy left some amphetamine with us. Not necessarily a good coincidence, but I had already 'decided' I would use the needle meant for sucking up the B12 for my own agenda.

Now I had been playing with the thought of mainlining opium, but it seemed like an extraordinarily bad idea. However since all the gear was within reach, the question I was asking myself had already been answered. Fuck yeah I'll mainline it. So since needles were limited and I try to never use a needle more than once (I break them off after a shot to make sure), I threw some speed into the mix.

I dissolved 800mg opium in a glass filled with 16cc of water, sucked 2cc equal to 100mg opium into a syringe and squirted it back out onto a table spoon which I stuck horizontally into a sealed cardboard box, so I could heat it from below without jumping and spilling it all in case it would suddenly start boiling violently. I lost way too many drugs like that.

I heated the spoon for at least 2 minutes in case any living microorganisms are present, let it cool, added the stimulant and proceeded to filter the slur in three steps: cotton, 450nm, 220nm, using fresh filters. The resulting liquid was translucent, but still had a reddish brown color.

Upon injection I immediately felt the familiar morphine pins and needles rush, but limited to my scalp this time. I suppose 100mg weren't enough for a full-blown rush. I still felt fantastic for a few minutes and decided I'd sit down to write this report. I hope you could gather some useful information.

Now that the report is finished, I still nod off occasionally. I've gone through 4.5g in the past eight days and all I used today was the intravenous injection of 100mg 9 hours ago, but have only been nodding off the past two hours despite still re-dosing very small amounts of amphetamine. I'd really like to hear an explanation of that.

AAAH,O ! Once you ever scraped sum off your own lanced pods to get at least 1Gramm you will never forget the texture, look, smell...
Unfortunately the vast fields in my Country are of that sort where they reduced alkaloid overall content to max 0.2% in sap as EU conform ( thanks to the 2 yank scientists making that possible. "Nice " hmm). I hear in UK they grow it for pharma, watched a film where its pressed into Pellets by the farmers.
Saw no fence but houses bordering the field, so some people must be extremly lucky there. A few nightly field trips....have my fair share of those when younger. Was my first Opiate with 14y. Imported turkish giant pods, lanced with specks of black gum still in the incisions. Taste gruesome (tea) but so worth it!! Was around 1983,not long after they outlawed em. In my City a store sells em for floral deco as in old times and under the table packed bags of "special " but dont do anything for me.
Desperately ordered some O once from dn, got fished out and you'd never (!) guess what the cop lab found it to be. O is my #1 doc but never seen for a decade now :-( What a underrated substance. Substitutìon with O- tincture would be awesome but that is only for stage 3 Cancer here. I'd gladly trade that with the M.sulphate, Methadone, Polamidon and Subs. Never felt anything from bupe anyway. Aah the old timesTimes- Nembutal, Mandrax, Dipidolor, Ketobemidon....O.!
Look at it now! :-(

DISCLAIMER

The dosages used in this thread are very high compared to typical dosage ranges described in literature. This may either be due to a weak product or my god-given morphine tolerance. Ever since I've first taken morphine which was one of the first opiates I've tried I've had lackluster experiences both in terms of quality and expected intensity. Without any sub-acutely acquired tolerance I usually feel threshold effects at 30mg rectally administered morphine sulfate and have intravenously injected doses that could kill an elephant - at zero acquired tolerance. Very surprising considering as little as 100mg Tramadol can send me into a heavy nod.

Just be aware that when trying new opiates you should start off low in order to avoid respiratory issues. This not only goes for opiates, but for all other drugs and plant extracts in particular!



INTRODUCTION

Greetings fellow polytoxicomanics!

Since there isn't that much information about opium around and a lot of experience reports seem to be based on substances that were wrongfully passed off as opium, I am gonna make this a long and elaborate experience report which will include some background information not necessarily. Feel free to skip the entire prequel since it's void of useful information about opium.

I've been meaning to get ahold of Opium since 2006 when I declined a casual gift of roughly 10g of what was most definitely genuine opium considering who offered it to me. It was during one of those weeks when I decided I would never ever do drugs again and I've been feeling a bit of regret over it until recently. Since I'm not in the drug scene and don't have any intentions to change that, most of my friends do not use drugs at all or very rarely, let alone sell them.

So I gave word out in the past year to everyone who could possibly score some or has known people in possession of it in the past, to no avail. Eventually I kicked it up a notch and told people that I am really determined to get some and that they could buy 200?‚? worth without consulting me first if they ever come across it.

It so happened that the sister of a pretty close friend told me there is a store dedicated to shamanism that sells it openly along with a long list of other drugs. The day she was gonna pick it up another friend came up and told me he found somebody he's known for many years to whom he fronted the sum I named. So basically this wasn't great news since 400?‚? is a lot of money to me, but hey - it looked like I'd finally get a taste. The taste is what I was really after, since I'm not that big into opiates.



PREQUEL - THE FRAUD

So my friend's sister - let's call her Jenny - went to the shamanism shop along with a friend of hers who had actually bought pot, mushrooms and opium from them before. Both of them are 19 years of age. They know a whole lot more about drugs than the average 19 year old user, but are obviously not as well-versed as guys like us.

The 'business shaman' asked 80 Euros per gram, leading me to believe it must be really good. We met at the central station and Jenny handed me the alleged opium. It was black, shiny and had a grainy texture to it. It was extremely sticky and due to this property could not be rolled into a ball. I was happy as a log and eager to get home.As she left us and I smelled the substance I was immediately reminded of Sceletium Tortuosum extract. Considering everyone who has had genuine opium claims it has a unique smell that one will never forget, I had my first doubts about the authenticity of the product that was now in my possession. When I tasted it and realized it is not bitter in the least, but instead extremely salty, almost as if it contained a lot of NaCl, I was a tad confused.

These doubts grew and grew as we drove home. Why would anyone sell genuine opium publicly? He was said to have several kg stocked, it just sounded unlikely he will keep those in a public store. With the legal issues in mind there's just no reason to keep that much stocked in the same place he sells it.

I still wanted to believe I had the real deal and loaded 100mg into a meth pipe. It did evaporate and eventually lost most of it's volume before it turned into a hard residue.
After I had gone through 500mg using this technique and still felt nothing but a subtle dizziness from the constant sucking on the pipe, already a tad angry at this point, but still in denial I tried to blame my technique and decided I would eat a large amount to make sure it really isn't what I had hoped it would be. I ended up drinking an aqueous solution of the remaining 2g in two doses of equal size, spaced less than an hour apart and was now sure I had been ripped off.

I wasn't sure which way to go, but knew the crooked business shaman would not get away with this. I was going to keep them out of it best I can, but to my surprise Jenny and her friend were eager to go as well. Who wants to be ripped off, right?

After almost two weeks we managed to squeeze it into our busy schedules ;) and went down there to get the money back. It turned out he sells pot as well, so I knew we had him by the balls and the whole thing wouldn't take long. I've always been told that I look like a straight-edge philistine type of person - a 'square' I guess. Ironed shirts, nice shows, healthy tan on the darker side and athletic (not bulky) body, always well-groomed and -scented.

We were asked to sit down and when the pseudo shaman arrived and we introduced ourselves I put the container on the table and asked him what the substance was. After telling him of the lack of effect the stuff had and him showing me his poppy plants of which he makes the 'opium', it became clear he would not compensate us. I got out my cellphone dialed 911 while making sure he could see the display and magically got my 200 Euros back. Things might've turned much messier, had he called my bluff.
I thought about extorting another 1000?‚?, but decided he may just believe what he is selling does indeed contain an sufficient amount of opiates. Instead I told the scumbag who never even asks for ID that the girl he sold it to was not 18 when she bought the material and threw some scare tactics at him so he would have to close shop for some time before he could be sure his place wouldn't be raided by the authorities.

I felt really fucking relieved after that, was happy to have my money back and even happier imagining how the business shaman and his two side-kicks were most definitely into in panic while clearing their store of equally over-priced illicit drugs.

It pained me to hear he was still selling drugs without even asking for an ID when Jenny told me he gave a single fucking mushroom to two of her friends at an unbeatable asking price of 120?‚?. Godamn crook.

So don't be fooled people, opium is usually scarce in the Western World and there are plenty of people without access to it who exploit that fact!



THE REAL DEAL

The other friend took another 2 weeks to finally get ahold of the opium which was originally said to cost 40?‚? per gram. With all the driving back and forth through Northern Germany, going through the trouble of being interviewed in highly sceptical fashion by his contact, I ended up paying roughly 70?‚? per gram or 350?‚? total for 5g. I was extremely grateful since he tore him self another asshole to fulfill my burning desire to try opium. "I am gonna get it done, if it's last thing I do!" is what he said.

It was an old Iranian guy who sold the opium and he seemed to have only sold it because he realized how important this was to us. Surprisingly he gave him the choice to get opium that is either best suited for oral use or best suited for vaporization. He called these two "smoking opium" and "eating-opium", terms which I had heard before but not in literature. One came from Iran and the other straight from Afghanistan if memory serves correctly. I wanted the "smoking-opium" since it was all about experiencing that allegedly unique and unforgettable taste, even though it was claimed to be slightly weaker than the kind used for oral use.

So the night finally arrived when my friend knocked on the door and handed me the long-sought goodies. After some hugs and kisses I removed the outer cellophane layer. I was slightly confused by how shiny the product was and actually asked whether this or not this was "already it". :D

It looked so shiny and smooth that I thought there might be another cellophane paper wrapped around it. It wasn't dark brown as some people describe, but pitch black. The blackest black I've ever seen. It smelled anything but unfamiliar. In fact it smelled exactly like the resin inside Papaver Rhoeas poppy pods and that of all other kinds of poppy I have smelled. It was neither beguiling, nor repulsive, not the kind olfactory sensation I had expected, but still very recognizable for sure. There was no doubt in my mind that what I was holding was indeed genuine imported opium.

I was recommended to put it into the freezer into a small glass along with a desiccant, since opium is hard will shatter relatively easily when cool, but will rapidly turn soft and sticky at room-temperature. When it is soft you can pull it apart to form some very long strings unlike hash or cannabis oil which will lose it's integrity soon upon being pulled apart.



INHALATION

The two vaporization techniques most people seemed to recommend were either putting heat under a meth pipe or an aluminum foil with the opium in or on it respectively, thereby avoiding exposition of the resinous drug to excessively high temperatures in order to avoid for it to fall victim to thermal decomposition.

Due to the health strain of chasing off aluminum foil I started off putting 100mg into a meth pipe. Alas the glass seemed to be too thick for the flame of the lighter to cause the product inside the glass bulb to evaporate. I wasn't happy about that since I had heard either technique would work very well, but as I've never had such great experiences with that pipe I was not particularly worried about being disappointed yet again and switched to aluminum foil, using a plastic straw to inhale the vapor.

The actual vapor initially tastes and smells very similar to the raw product, but with rising heat takes on an entirely different quality.
When this happened I finally found out why I had heard so many references to the smell of opium. I was instantly enchanted, felt my mind transported to scenarios like a hike in the mountains of distant lands or sitting at a bonfire with friends while heating bread on sticks over it. Magical.

I will try to describe the associations that came to mind:
- 45% Fermented and dried pork or beef like Salami sausage, leaning a wee bit towards smoked meat
- 35% Licorice
- 10% Bonfire

- 5% Burnt Plastic

I do not find most opioidergic drugs other than Tramadol euphoric and perceive some as quite dysphoric (Hydromorphone, Tilidine), others as neutral (Fentanyl, Oxycodone, Codeine). While morphine is slightly euphoric for me, I get heavy side effects at the needed dose (nausea and pruritus) and it's generally not worth it.
Opium though causes significantly stronger euphoria and lacks the brutal histaminergic side effects of very high morphine and codeine doses.

I had previously heard that Opium carries a whole lot of unpleasant side effects compared to synthetic or isolated opiates at the same degree pain relief.
I really have to disagree very strongly to this notion!
No other opiate I have taken has such a favorable ratio of desirable to undesirable effects. Very high doses however relativize this.

However, there are obviously some side effects. All of them but the motion sickness (which diminishes with time) increase in intensity as the experience progresses.
- My eyes feel like they are under pressure from the inside, they feel dry and very warm.
- My eyes are completely bloodshot - however pupil constriction is significantly less pronounced than with other opiates.
- My nose, ears and the rest of the face, but also the scrotum feel hot and become quite itchy, particularly the nose (other opiates tend to cause less specific pruritus, exacerbating my seasonal atopical eczema).
- My mouth turns very dry until I speak with a slight lisp.
- My voice is deeper and my speech becomes slurry.
- Constipation is quite pronounced, more so than with any other opiate I've tried. I gained 4kg within a week of use, despite defecating a few times whenever a dose had almost worn off.

Some effects and side effects only occur at very high doses, north of 750mg in my case:
- A feeling of 'walking on clouds' akin to the feeling on the come-up of a large MDMA dose.
- I keep nodding off no matter how hard I try not to. This can become really pronounced towards the end, even when I already feel like the effects are completely gone for many hours. Very strange.
- My head actually feels very heavy.
- Insomnia, I won't be able to sleep for the entire night after a large dose. I tried and tried. I get this on other opiates as well.
- My thoughts become less organized and wander off into strange places. I lack the ability to direct my attention. I also become quite forgetful when this happens.
- Between the peak and tail-end of the plateau (which alone can last 12 hours) of a very large dose I get a certain uneasiness, dysphoria, cravings not unlike those I experience on cocaine or to a lesser degree when I long for a cigarette. While I really just want to relax or sleep, I don't manage to initiate switching activities and fall into this robotic trance-like state during which I'll be doing the same pointless things for hours (think stupid android games), despite wanting to stop and relax. This inability to stop what I am doing even keeps me from re-dosing.



RECTAL USE

The experiences induced by inhalation and rectal administration last equally long. It doesn't make any sense to me yet, but compared to inhaled opium the effects kick in sooner and build up much quicker. Instead of sticking the cold and hard opium directly up my rectum, I dissolve roughly 200mg in 3ml water and add sodium bicarbonate to slightly raise the rectal pH.

T+0:02: First alert
T+0:20: Peak
T+3:00-6:00: Effects are diminishing

As stated earlier, I may still find myself nodding off despite keeping my mind busy, e.g. while sitting in the subway or at the dinner table nod off as late as the next day, even though I have already defecated, don't find my pupils constricted and assume the effects to have been gone for more than ten hours.

- The initial euphoria is much stronger
- I am less talkative
- The stimulating phase is shortened
- Drowsiness becomes more pronounced earlier into the experience.
- Much sharper drop-off towards the end
- The experience lasts roughly 6h compared to 30h after oral administration
- The peak lasts roughly 3h compared to 12h after oral administration



INTRAVENOUS INJECTION

You don't have to tell me what a fucking moron I am for doing this. I know damn well. Since it was today that it happened for the first and hopefully last time, I am currently quite anxious about the risk of infections.
Since I have to give my wife a B12 shot today, we had two needles around. Unfortunately a buddy left some amphetamine with us. Not necessarily a good coincidence, but I had already 'decided' I would use the needle meant for sucking up the B12 for my own agenda.

Now I had been playing with the thought of mainlining opium, but it seemed like an extraordinarily bad idea. However since all the gear was within reach, the question I was asking myself had already been answered. Fuck yeah I'll mainline it. So since needles were limited and I try to never use a needle more than once (I break them off after a shot to make sure), I threw some speed into the mix.

I dissolved 800mg opium in a glass filled with 16cc of water, sucked 2cc equal to 100mg opium into a syringe and squirted it back out onto a table spoon which I stuck horizontally into a sealed cardboard box, so I could heat it from below without jumping and spilling it all in case it would suddenly start boiling violently. I lost way too many drugs like that.

I heated the spoon for at least 2 minutes in case any living microorganisms are present, let it cool, added the stimulant and proceeded to filter the slur in three steps: cotton, 450nm, 220nm, using fresh filters. The resulting liquid was translucent, but still had a reddish brown color.

Upon injection I immediately felt the familiar morphine pins and needles rush, but limited to my scalp this time. I suppose 100mg weren't enough for a full-blown rush. I still felt fantastic for a few minutes and decided I'd sit down to write this report. I hope you could gather some useful information.

Now that the report is finished, I still nod off occasionally. I've gone through 4.5g in the past eight days and all I used today was the intravenous injection of 100mg 9 hours ago, but have only been nodding off the past two hours despite still re-dosing very small amounts of amphetamine. I'd really like to hear an explanation of that.

Contrary to popular belief and sources like wiki, Opium's history in China is as old as the nation itself, while iran's whole land has been existing for only 3000 yrs. Today's China no longer look like what we notice in classic kung-fu movies. Its been at least two years since i started working/living in two provinces of china yet I swear Ive never met anyone buying, selling or even taking any legal or illegal psychoactive substance, except alcohol and cigs. But unlike china, Iran and Afghanistan have the highest levels of drug abuse among most of eastern countries. And opium is the most popular stuff among traditional/religious Iranians, Old ppl who suffer from many physical pains can easily get a prescription for an average amount of opium available in the form of syrup or pill. (Note that Im not talking about opioid pills, Im actually referring to half-organic pills that contain at least 60% of organic opium, available in hospitals and pharmacies)
The hatred towards any drug in china is reasonable and a bit hard to explain. Some of them see any drug as a poison. Even talking about drugs make them feel uncomfortable and scared because any drug reminds them of "opium war in china". An invader country like UK forced india to plant/produce and sell opium to china. China actually didnt lose the war with weak army of small britain but for reasons they decided to end the horrible war because of some complicated reasons. UK successfully invaded HK, raped and killed million defenseless women and children and stole 300 tons of golden antiques.

Political discussions are boring and irrelevant to this tread, But I just wanna say, I think being a refugee is the worst way of moving out of your country.

With all due respects, addiction is a kind of weakness that nobody on earth is able to hide. No matter how hard u try to hide it. Sooner or later, your boss gets u fired, your family turn their back on you, ppl recognize you as a criminal person. No girl accept your request to be in relationship with u. (lol u may be able to hide it from a girl but your parents are zillion times smarter ta your girlF.
Watching an Australian movie called "Candy 2006" shows how addicted couples earn money to support their H-addiction. Its so disgusting see when your wife/gf turns to be a hooker to earn money to buy You and herself some "H".

When it comes to "drug crisis" in Israel, Refugees and Palestinians are often blamed/detained. Jews who buy the stuffs over there never get busted. Sooo interesting.

Contrary to popular belief and sources like wiki, China has the longest history of use/abuse of opium for medical or recreational purposes, not iran But now my chinese friends/workmates are ashamed of talking about that. They say they are even scared of planting that as Im sure u are already aware of the maximum level of penalty/punishment for using or dealing illegal drug in "today's china" while as i previously highlighted, opium still remains the most popular drug among traditional iranians, and very old ppl who can easily get a prescription for some small amount of opium in the form of syrup or pill. (Note that Im not talking about opioid pills, Im actually referring to half-organic pills that contain at least 60% of organic opium, available in hospitals and pharmacies)
Yeah,they say Hongkong is built on Opium.
Shanghai had loads of O- dens, i live in the wrong times. Imagine being able to choose between a pub and a O- den, both legal!
British East India Company was moving tons!
Interestingly the Chinese seem to prefer smoking their dope. When H first came out, they heated it in ceramic bowls and inhaling the vapor. ( source: Christian Rätsch).
No wonder the Persians fled, Ayatollah Khomeini buried O- smokers alive head first in burning coals and assorted torture.

Me too, It's been only two years since i moved to china, currently running a modest and small art gallery in Guangxi while my house is located in sichuan.
within these two years of living here, I've never tried to look for something illegal. Even my friends there hate to talk about stuffs, even when i try to convince them why some psychoactives are safer than Alcohol. Let me tell u a short and interesting story:
I once talked to one of my workmates who seemed open-minded and very curious about hallucinations caused by Psychedelics, but our ceo's brother heard my story/explanation. He was like "keep talking about sh*ts that ppl take in your land and I will immediately call the cops on you. Everyone knows that talking about drugs is legal in all countries but he is one of million Chinese who consider any psychoactive substance to be "poison"
I swear i wasn't frightened but since i was (and still are) a pacific person, I apologized, and decided to stop talking about drugs, specially when I am among ppl who call us junkie.

I've seen the photos of those "opium dens" where ppl used to drink tea, smoke opium and get massaged by/from pretty servant girls but my friend said that china no longer look like what we see in "kung-fu" movies. I believe that finding a stuff or dealer is not impossible but i'm a foreigner, I've waited almost 6 months to get a promotion and wouldn't look for trouble. I don't wanna lose my job and get deported, no matter what stuff I'm craving. I can buy and use stuffs when i take a break from work, and fly back to iran to visit my family.
I guess u agree the fact that the hatred they show towards psychoactives is mostly due to clueless and lack of knowledge. But lets take a look at bright side, living in another country is the best excuse reduce my tolerance. You have probably tried opium (at least once) and already aware of how addictive it is.

I think this kind of fear is normal, not a sign of being pussy and having no courage. It's just... an attempt to stop looking for trouble.. Right?

All i know is, u are talking about the former leader of iran, No worries. Im not a pro-easterner and don't admire what he did. Politics and diplomatic rows are the is the last thing I would talk about. My hatred towards middle east often provoke many bluelight members. I'm lucky because i have always tried to take a long break from any stuff i take before it gets too late, it is the only way to beat the addiction.



Lately The only positive/wise decision that iran has ever done is easing the penalty for drug dealing.

Iran: removal of death penalty for some drugs offences welcomed


Its been only few years since they made such decision. and here i what erowid says about the penalty for using any illegal drug in iran

Erowid's view on the punishment of drug addicts (not dealers)

I've never liked west of asia. Of course I often miss taking psychoactives in my homeland but I hate mid-east so much that I would rather stay sober and keep living in my fv countries. Mid-east sucks even though drugs there are easier and cheaper to get.

In north of china, my mom's cousin got arrested and deported all because of planting and growing MJ in the small garden of the house he rented. I tried a lot to convince him to avoid planting that Sh*t. He was lucky to hold a visa job there because citizen addicts in china get arrested, the gov forced them to be detoxed before they get detained for at least one year.

Visit this link if possible although i don't trust any eastern or western news network:

https://www.vox.com/2020/2/10/21131863/trump-china-executions-drug-dealers

Execution of drug dealers is really unfair.
Plus my mom's cousin was an innocent guy, He was growing MJ for personal use.

I don't know who ayarttolla is but Iranian cops rarely bust addicted specially if the addicted person is poor, homeless or too old.. In my previous posts, Ive already mentioned the price of opium and other illegal drugs in iran. I work in China and have no access to any legal/illegal "high". I still remember the first time i've ever visited china. I became intensely "ILL" in ChengDu actually due to intense seasonal allergies and experiencing opium's intolerable withdrawal symptoms. So I asked my Chinese partner to buy me some meds. I knew the fact in china, almost all sedative and tranquilizers can't be bought without prescription, So I asked her to buy me some (OTC) painkillers or anything that calms me down and but she failed to get them either, She only got a Nasal Spray and few placebo pills. The i started to miss being in iran because, unlike somewhere like U.S/EU, Benzos and many of recreational meds are available over the counter, which means we don't have to buy a medicine from a drug dealer (yeah... this is the only thing i like about my homeland). Even when we get busted for using or possession of illegal drugs in Iran, this link tells u the maximum level(s) of penalty/punishment.

Source: https://erowid.org/psychoactives/law/countries/iran/iran_law1.shtml

Dealers get a warning and a bill when they get arrested for the first time. The second time the get detained for one day to 1 year (depending upon what and how much the sell)
China executes the dealers. and According to their laws, If u carry a large amount of illegal drugs, you are absolutely a dealer.
Its been only two years since iran's gov decided to stop executing the dealers.

Here is a source.

Iran Eases Death Penalty for Drug Crimes, Saving Potentially Thousands of Lives

Anyway. Not everyone using Opium is an addict. Opium at very low doses plays the role of a real relaxant, therefore the possession of less one one gram is totally legal
(Source: Google/Baidu)

BTW, I am not posting on this thread to boast about the stuffs we easily get in Iran. Nor am I encouraging foreigners to visit iran. (as a someone might think that Iran is the most hated country in the world and I am the most hated member of this website, Remember what I've done in a thread of lounge...? Good!

Living and working in somewhere like "zhubei" or other cities of china's mainland for some long period of time has made me used to sobriety.
I have the chance of taking stuffs when i take a break from my unfinished projs and fly back to my homeland but it happens occasionally.
