    Ok so Swim did some digging in the forums and googled it and didnt really find anything to answer swims question


    OK so Swim has some Iceland poppies growing and all of them are in pods.

    No flowers yet just all pods

    Question is, are these pods usable to make tea or anything else.

    also was wondering around how many pods are needed since these are pretty small pods. they dont get much bigger really.

    CoryInJapan added 49 Minutes and 34 Seconds later...

    well swim grinded up about 7 pods with the stems attached and is going to do and extraction to see what swim gets and will try dosing small as its belived to contain

    Two minor alkaloids were isolated from the capsule of Papaver nudicaule. On the basis of physicochemical methods and spectroscopic analysis, they were identified as chelidonine, 5-hydroxy-2-hydroxymethylpyridine. Chelidonine was isolated from this plant and 5-hydroxy-2-hydroxymethylpyridine was isolated from genus for the first time.

    Any help on the psycoactive or medicinal properties of this plant would be great

    If no one know one knows Swim will use this as a journal of what swim finds out about it.

    No, these poppies are not psychoactive.

    I would suspect that, like many kinds of poppies, this kind will cause dropsy (swelling of the eyes and heart), and probably vomiting. I'm not basing this on evidence of any sort, so I could be wrong about the dropsy, but they are almost certainly poisonous in some way. Poppy poisoning isn't fun, so it's not something I would experiment with.

    well when swim looked it up on google and came across wiki it said it contains poisonous poppys like ALL poppys including the ones used to make opium



    Dont want to know only if its psycoactive just wanted to know if there are any uses in it medicinal or recreationally which looks like its not a recreation type.

    No . . No poppy other than Opium Poppy (Papaver Somniferum) contains the correct alkaloids for real medicinal use. Some poppies contain certain alkaloids that are used in home remedy medicine but not medically.

    Read the poppy FAQs thread in the stickies. It answers all of this and much more so that people do not ask the same questions over and over again in the thread section.

    Peace :)

    Yea figured that out a bit with more research but, facts didnt show up when I used the search function on the forum and thats probably why I didn't look in there.
