Does poppy seed oil have enough morphine to cause an effect?

    I was looking in to poopy seed tea. While doing my research I found that a wiki that says
    “[the oil] contains opium alkaloids such as morphine and codeine in quantities of up to 400 mg/L”

    Does that mean poppy seed oil has enough morphine to actually cause an effect? Other then the quantity of oil you would have to consume. Is there any reason anyone knows why this shouldn’t be done? (I.e. Heavy metals, some poisonous alkaloid, etc).

    Has anyone actually tried to use this before?

    Well if the tea has an effect on people, I would presume that the oil would as well, right? I think of it like this: If weed is made into an oil, it is much more potent. So why wouldn't the same apply to a different plant, ie Opium?

    Go try some and report back to us. That would be a far more interesting thread.

    Is morphine very lipid soluble? I didn't think it was.

    Otherwise, we'd have a forum full of poppy butter recipes.

    Apparently it is, Perro. If you go to the main Wikipedia, you can learn quite a bit about how it is made and what it is used for. The write-up says that it is edible, but says nothing about using it for "attitude enhancement..."

    It is sold freely online, mostly for cooking. All the sites I looked at said something like, "Poppy seeds have no narcotic properties. The fluid in the bud that becomes opium is not present once the seeds are fully formed."
