Best way to collect opium
    #3010004 - 08/16/04 06:59 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I know most people cut them about a mm deep maybe 4 times around the pod, but how is a person to collect large amounts of it without making a mess?

I did it just as you said, but i went maybe 7-8 times around the pod, just guessed what would be effective really. And i collected it about 1/2 an hour after i lanced, because it looked like it was going to rain. And sure enough it did.

So after the rain i went back out and lanced again, got about the same ammount as i got first time. this may be less potent though, i'm not really sure.

Here is how you cut and scrape the pod, a picture form northern Thailand


and a beautiful Papaver somniferam Poppy formthe University district in October 12, 2001.



And a new paper reprint form Mark D. Merlin who co-authored several of my shroom papers. Mark also wrote man and Marijuana ( the fitst book on the history of hemp, for his masters at the geography dept. at the U of H). ANd he wrote On the Trail of the Ancient Opium Poppy, and later co-authored Kava: The Pacific Drug.
Her eis is article fromthe jornal of Economic Botany. Just the cover and first page of the article. It is too long to reprint but you can go to any university library and look it up.\\\

The best is to do it in the morning, couse it will get sticky and hard when the milk gets in touch with the air and the sun light.
It will stick and close the cuttings. you couldn't collect much.

When you do it in the morning the milk will drop easely, in the cool mornin air and u can collect a good amount untill the temp. and the sun gets to top.

I think most people use the same knife they score it with to collect the putty.

Quick question:  If i want to collect pods without scoring them do i wait to untill they are dry, or should i collect them when they are prime for harvest and let them dry out?  :sun:

Hmmmmm....  Good question.  I'm guessing if you let them die all the alkloids would disappear, so it would probably be better harvest them in their prime.  It would also probably be better to wait for a more knowledgable reply! :smile:
