Here are a couple of ideas from one of our members.
Those look nice!
I'm thinking about growing a few too. Mostly because my mom likes to use them in bouquets, but also because I'm kind of interested in poppies.
What do people do with them?
I've read about teas from the seeds, and scratching the pods for raw opium. Is any of those things worth the hassle?
I'm curious about what would be the best way to start experimenting with it.
If one of you could provide me with some info, or where to look, that would be nice.
Good luck on the grow, have some of my karma!
Water Extraction- look to the end of this thread. Anything from Shadow Wing is really informative. Starting at post #241 but do read over his whole thread.
The only time I've tried using my harvest I just made a Pod tea. Worked really well and was quick and simple to prepare.
I've scored a few pods for informational purposes and didn't seem like a productive method for a small scale grower. I believe one would need a few hundred plants to make scoring worth while. If extracting the contents from the pods is your game then do read the above links provided written by Shadow Wing. Very informative
Be careful with opiates and alcohol as they can be a dangerous combination and do your own research on dosing. Below is a good link for information .
As for sourcing poppy seed, World Seed Supply I've been very happy with them and have grown their seeds out. If you care to be a supporting member I'm sure one of our members would be able to help you out in the VIP Section with a seed request to get you started
