    so two friends of mine tried some poppy seed tea, and found it to be extremly potent. neither had tried any opiates prior to this. both had side effects which they were mainly unaware of prior to drinking the tea, so it was not a placebo response- teeth chattering etc.

    one then bought some pods online, from a reputable seller (mentioned online as a god source for pods for tea making), made pod tea from 3 mashed up pods, again with water, lemon and orange juice- got nothing. at all. cracked all the pods open and made tea from 500g of seeds- with the same make of bottled lemon, and ornage, juice as the first time, along w a litlte boiling water- shook it for ages, drank grapefruit juice too- etc. sipped slowly, but after 4 washes, and drinking it all over 6 hours- nothing. infact, still had diarrhea- which should have been stopped a little, due to the constipating effect of poppies.

    so- was it just a defunct batch? both the pods and the seeds should surely have yielded some effect??

    anyone have any ideas?

    A friend told me you are not using enough pods. Ten golf ball sized pods is good for someone without any tolerance. And seeds are are not even worth it.

    It could have been a weak batch of pods. Swim can roll HARD on 10g to 15g. One can't stress enough the importance of weighing said pods and dosing by the gram, not by how many pods, etc.

    Separate the seeds from the straw. Very little good stuff on the seeds. Swim saves all his seeds until he has a half pound or so, then make a brew. They are heavy and will skew your weight for a baseline. Make sense?

    Btw, Swim grinds the straw in a Vitamix to powder, then puts in a glass of grapefruit juice and drinks the whole slurry. Screw the tea. In Swims opinion, the tea is a waste. Just eat everything. The onset will be slower, but much harder and longer. Say 8-12 hrs.

    After .5 hrs, you will feel uninhibited and continue to rise. (think 25mg lortab)
    After 3 hrs, it will plateau....hang on. Your voice will drop 2 whole octaves.
    At 6 hrs, Your nuts will itch like a thousand 'skeeter bites and your teeth will grind.
    Blissful sleep awaits at 8+ hr. mark.

    It could be weak pods, the wrong type of pods, or they may have degraded if they were stored for a long period. 3 pods isnt much, its good you started with such a small amount, try working your way up gradually. Maybe next time try 5. Weighing them is a much better way to measure dose as opposed to counting pods as the previous poster said. Perhaps you should invest in a scale. They are relatively cheap, you can buy them at wallmart.

    Listing wallmart as a source is allowed, just saying... :vibes:
