I am sure
you could find this if you try but oh well. I need to explain the diffrence in them, obtaining them, addiction
etc. I know for a fact some of this very D.E.A report is on here.
This may be wrong, but to my understanding is correct. Would not know because I have never produced drugs, this is from books.
is the raw product from the poppy
. It is cut and the latex
drains to the center rather then the surface where its collected. It is then cooked.
You extract morphine
among other opiate
alkaloids including thebaine
. In order for heroin
to be extracted the producers must first extract the morphine.
Here is an apparent typical morphine extraction in Asia.
An empty 55-gallon oil drum is placed on bricks about a foot above the ground and a fire is built under the drum. Thirty gallons of water are added to the drum and brought to a boil. Ten to 15 kilograms of raw opium
are added to the boiling water.
Slaked lime (calcium hydroxide) or, more often, a readily available chemical fertilizer with a high content of lime, is added to the solution. Lime will convert water- insoluble morphine alkaloid
into water-soluble calcium morphenate. (Other opium alkaloids do not react with lime to form water-soluble calcium salts, as does morphine
is an opium alkaloid that is slightly water-soluble and some codeine
will be carried over with the calcium morphenate in the liquid.
Ammonium chloride (a powder) is added to the heated calcium morphenate solution to adjust the alkalinity to a pH of 8 to 9, and the solution is then allowed to cool. Within 1 or 2 hours, morphine base precipitates (“crashes”) out of the solution and settles to the bottom of the cooking pot
The solution is then poured off through cloth filters. Any solid morphine base chunks in the solution will remain on the cloth. The morphine base is removed from both the cooking pot and from the filter cloths, wrapped and squeezed in cloth, and then dried in the sun
Heres the way to get heroin from morphine
synthesis from morphine (either morphine base or morphine hydrochloride) is a two-step process that requires between 4 and 6 hours to complete. Heroin base is the intermediate product. Typically, morphine hydrochloride
bricks are pulverized and the dried powder is then placed in an enamel pot. Acetic anhydride is added, which then reacts with the morphine
to form heroin
acetate. (This acetylation process will work either with morphine hydrochloride or morphine base
.) The pot lid is tied or clamped on, using a damp towel for a gasket. The pot is carefully heated for about 2 hours, below boiling, at a constant temperature of 85° Celsius (185° Fahrenheit). It is never allowed to boil or to become so hot as to vent fumes into the room. The mixture is agitated by tilting and rotation until all of the morphine
has dissolved. When cooking is completed, the pot is cooled and opened. During this step, morphine
and the anhydride become chemically bonded, creating an impure form of diacetylmorphine
Water is added to the thick, soupy mixture and the mixture is stirred as the heroin dissolves in the solution. Sodium carbonate (a crystalline powder) is dissolved in hot water and then added slowly to the heroin solution until effervescence stops. This precipitates heroin base, which is then filtered and dried by heating in a steam bath. For each kilogram of morphine, 685 grams to 937 grams of crude heroin base is formed, depending on the quanity of morphine.
The tan-colored heroin base (about 70 percent pure heroin) may be dried, packed, and transported to a heroin-refining laboratory, or it may be purified further before conversion to heroin hydrochloride (a water-soluble salt form of heroin) at the same site.
And lastly geting heroin #3 from heroin base (which is above)
To make heroin no. 3
, the crude base is mixed with hydrochloric acid, resulting in heroin hydrochloride (HCl). Adulterants, including caffeine
, are added after this conversion. Various “flavorings” such as quinine hydrochloride or strychnine hydrochloride are sometimes added to heroin no. 3. Next, the wet paste mix is stirred to dryness over a steam bath.
The resulting dry heroin no. 3 will be in the form of coarse lumps. The lumps are crushed and passed through a mesh sieve, and the grains (pieces) are then packaged for sale.
Ok, so now you know the diffrence between opium and heroin right, which you wanted.
Here is how they compare in my opion.
Strength (this is not opion):
is the weakest of them, morphine
is stronger and pure heroin
is stronger still then pure morphine.
Duration in my experiance:
smoked: 2-4 hours
orally taken 3-5 hours
smoked: 3-7 hours
They are all addicting drugs. Heroin is the most, morphine second and opium third. Doesnt mean opium is safe non-addictive to use daily etc, in my opion.
Diffrence between them IMO:
Opium will never compare to good quality, close to pure heroin. Morphine just doesnt messure up to heroin either and codeine
is nothing to them unless its a liquid form and even then.
Heroin is most commonly injected, then smoked then snorted. Diffrent forms you do diffrent things with. Opium is most commonly smoked, morphine is usually taken orally but can be injected or smoked I assume like an Oxy though I never tried.
Heroin is easiest to get addicted to, injection is a dangerous R.O.A.
The effects are similar in most opiates
just to a varying degree, heroin is more euphoric then any other opiate I have tried in my opion only though.
I would say the best opiate out of heroin/codeine/morphine is heroin, but it is the most common opiate that people get addicted to other then maybe painkillers.
Heroin is not a drug
to be taken lightly, and if you are trying it for the first time you should read up on the drug
