    SWIM has made pod tea probably 5 or 6 times because he either did not have money for his usual OxyContin or oxycodone dose to keep from getting withdrawl. He wanted to know if its possible for someone to hypotheically make snortable or smokable heroin from poppy pods (dried)? He knows you can make morphine base, but morphine is not very euphoric and he would rather do heroin any day. He has done H before a handful of times and loved it, the only reason he prefers oxycodone is because he KNOWS its not cut with anything and he knows what he's getting. So from morphine base, can you make Heroin?

    Heroin is made from morphine base. There's lots of stuff online about making heroin from morphine. You have to make some sort of morphine salt from the base then it's processed into heroin.

    If one has morphine, one can have heroin very easily if one can acquire Acetic Anhydride. (UTFSE re: Acetic Anhydride).

    grind pods very fine and let them soak in slightly hot water, (not hot, but very warm) for about an hour or two.

    strain all pods (save for later you can make tea again from them.

    the brown liquid left ahould then have a base added to precipate the morphine (lime slate, or calcium from a food store, I've seen calcium cabonate used from like a GNC)

    stir the mixture and let it sit for a fe hours. you shouls see a brown sludge form at the bottom, that is the calcium morphenate.

    carefully pour the water out to keep as much of the sludge as possible, a filter like cheescloth or simliar will help greatly (the water actually contains quite a bit of codiene and thebaine so you may want to save it)

    let the sludge dry a bit and then you are ready to purify it with sulfuric acid (lol)

    from there the ever so regulated chemical that i cant spell acetic anhydride (woot spelled it)

    cook at low temp until you get a that vingar smell

    ... and make sure to get ALL the other alkaloids (codeine, papervine, thebaine, ect ect) out before you add Acetic Anhydride... otherwise, you can have a fatal allergic reaction. You know how opiates make you itch? It's the release of histamines in the body, and when the acetic reacts with the other alkaloids they make your body release a massive load of histamines... which is obviously dangerous. Swim was reading about it somewhere but, can't find the article. just warning so you don't hurt yourself.
    also, if laudanum (opium tincture) is made with whiskey this REALLY causes problems since there is acetic acid in the whiskey which chances the alkaloids in the opium. most people probably wouldn't have thought. definitly not a good idea also.
    good luck with the product;)

    ahh, sorry, the acetic acid "alters" not "chances" the alkaloids, converting some morphine into heroin but turning the codeine and thebaine toxic swim presumes.
