I know potentency varies pod to pod..I just want an approximate answer.

Thank you!

Dried juice from or in the poppyheads is called Opium. Opium contains a wide range of alkaloids, many active simultaniously, in varying proportions.

To standardize Opium the apothecary standard was that "Pharmaceutical Opium" was to contain 10% Morphine, since the other alkaloids were relative to the morphine.

An average poppyhead, the size of a small walnut, weighs about 1 gram.
Ground poppyheads contain between 0.1-0.5% Morphine or, applying the apothecary standard, 10-50mg Opium per gram.
In colder climates 25mg Opium per gram is about the average yield.

The oral doses most often used were 1-2 grains of Opium which is about 1/15-1/8 gram which is contained in about 3-15gr pods, or about 5gr on average. Usually, for most people, 5gr of poppyheads does not lead to overdoses that are dangerous nor underdoses that are slight, given that the poppyheads are well-prepared. (steeped in diluted limejuice in the refrigerator rather then simmered as a tea which ruins Opium)

Make no mistake: Poppyheads are HIGHLY ADDICTIVE and can be LETHAL by overdose or COMPLETELY RUIN YOUR LIFE.
I myself dance with the Demon, but harbour no illusions that it is anything BUT a Demon. It insidiously invites you to take it again, and again, until you find out the invitations are by no means voluntary anymore.
