    Hi, first I would like to thank you for taking the time to read this thread.

    In this tutorial I'm gonna show you how to grow grade A opium.

    Let's get started

    Climate: Hot humid climates are the best. Any place that you can grow pot you can grow opium. A drop of 15 to 20 degrees at night is good for the opium. You only need to water the plants if it is drier than 2 weeks or they start to droop.

    Protection from bugs: If you have slugs in your area watch out. The best things for keeping slugs away is copper tape. Simply lay the tape around the plant. For beatles plant 1 poppy and put a beetle bag on it. This will keep them going to that poppy and that poppy alone.

    Buy the seeds: They can be any kind of papaver somniferum seeds however I recommend giganteum because you get more out of the pods. The best time to sow these seeds is in late September. They will lay dormat but in spring the will pop up and have a strong root system.

    Germinating: Lay seeds in wet soil and in 1 to 2 weeks you should have a sprout.

    Preparing the grow site: Opium grows pretty good in just about any soil. Just make sure it drains well and that's about all there is to it. They can not ne grown indoors AT ALL. They must be grown outside and you can not even start the seeds indoors. It will stunt there growth big time.

    Sprout: After 1 to 2 weeks after sowing in soil you should have a sprout. Make sure it gets full sun at all times throughout the day.

    1 month after sowing in soil: By now your poppy should have numerous green leaves and be about 1-1 1/2 ft tall. Just keep doing what you've been doing and in 2-3 more months you will have a successful opium yield.

    2 months after sowing in soil: It should be about 2 ft tall a lot of leaves and strong stem.

    3 months after sowing in soil: Now your crop is almost complete. Around this time the leaves should start to fall off. Do not be alarmed as this is what's supposed to happen. After 2 weeks of all leaves being off the pod should be mature enough and ready for harvest.

    Harvest: Your work has finally payed off and your about to enjoy it. You will need an extremely sharp knife for the harvest. A razor blade works well. What you need to do is take the knife and cut the pod about a 1/16 th of an inch. Do not cut the pod in a circle but form side to side in the shape of a headband would be the best thing I could compare it to. You should notice a milky liquid oozing out of the pod. Let it ooze on it's own for 3-4 hours and it will dry into a brown or black substance on the pod. Simply scrape this substance off with a spatula or something similar and you have opium.

    I hope you enjoyed this guide and enjoy your yield.:mrgreen:

    Note: What you see on my avatar is what you will scrape off.

    I don't approve of opium at all man, that will fuck you and your life up, and how will it look if your growing heroin alongside weed, it will reflect badly on the whole pot smoking community.

    Fuck heroin man.

    Get a brain tumor and then tell me how you feel about it. I would get morphine codiene etc but I don't have that kind of money so I smoke pot and opium. More pot than opium but sometimes pot just doesnt do it. I don't approve of it if you have no medical condition but if you have cancer aids etc opium will defintely help take the pain away.

    oh ill agree with that opiates are fantastic for pain, on a political level I actively peruse heroin as a substitute to morphine as we dont have enough for the third world.

    But opiates itself are available over the counter mixed with pain killers, Ive had these myself, and they work too good.

    my point is most people here are recreational users and growers, and for most growers there's little excuse why they would need opium for pain medication.

    and finally you posted in the wrong forum noob.

    First off I'm not a crackhead. I do it because of my condition and I don't have enough to pay for the medicine. You know what's really fucked up tho? They charge people so much and yet you can grow your own for free and not have to worry about anything else they added to it.

    I would say a chill pill is in order. He has a brain tumor and if heroin does the trick so be it. Why so hostile to the dude.

    Random note: I'm a noob with under 500 posts.

    My close friend with MS gets morphine pills for daily pain. I've had a morphine drip at the ER once. I've tried 4 of my friends morphine pills. The pills completely blow compared to its intravenous brother.

    My tendons are shot from years of playing basketball. I'm debating flat foot surgery. Tendon transfer from pinky toe to Posterial Tibial Tendon, heal shave so my feet land differently and a fucking achilies lengthoning. While I'm contemplating this procedure I'm on meds. Both feet need to get done and it's pretty much a year off your feet...a wheel chair.

    I've had them all (pills). Some work great for others not for someone else. There are much stronger meds than Vicodin but it works for me. My doctor recently gave me an opiate. I think it was Tramadol. I think Tylenol PM is stronger. My mother in law was here from Brazil, her and my father in law fell. I gave them each one of these pills. One felt no benefit and the other did. This from senior citizens.

    I don't know what smoking opium does but I do know from extensive experience with required prescription meds that they suck veruse the real dope.

    I still remember that lovely day in the ER. Everything sucked till the drip came in to play.

    I can't smoke it personally it tastes like crap. I either put it in a gel capsules I get from the store. I also mix it with tea. From your post it sounds like your in a lot of pain. You should try it as long as you have no previous drug addictions. It's the same thing but cheaper and organic.

    I'm cool with what I'm doing for now. It's manageable with Vicodin. Last year I tried Percocet. The difference between name brand and generic was everything.

    I don't have an addictive personality. At times my prescription runs out. I'm lazy, don't go back for an appointment or something. I'll go a week without meds. No problem, just the shits so I take some immodium. Oh, and pain.

    Damn. On the harsh comments. Good info.

    Those hating have never smoked pure opium. Opium is not heroin. You can buy opium seeds at a garden store, wal-mart, even your grocery store. Even if you never cut them; they are beautiful flowers and I would bet that a cop would have no clue what they are and they are legal as long as you dont score them..

    I have only smoked Opium once (YEARS AGO) and it was a joint that had opium in it. Fantastic high, great sex, mellow. The stuff I smoked was sweet smelling and had a pleasant taste. I really can't say anything bad about it.

    Never smoked it on its own. The stuff we had was really sweet and I thought it tasted and smelled amazing.

    Perhaps a different variety?

    It may be. I think also you can add flavoring if you cook it. I use raw.

    How many pods do you harvest? I heard that it inst worth the effort because each pod yields so little that is isn't worth the effort.
