"Eating Powdered Poppy Pods"
 
I have heard that just grinding up the pods to a fine powder, mixing with cold water and an emulsifying agent(soy lecithin)and drinking, provides a great long lasting effect. Plus the plant fiber keeps the viewer from getting that constipation. Fiber builds fecal volume.

Yep, provides a good buzz if you can stand to get it down your gullet. Substitute honey for the soy and its better. Getting your moneys worth when you eat the grinds.

Thanks for the honey tip! It tastes a lot better, but I am not sure how good it is for your plasma glucose levels!

   I used to grind them up, add hot water to form a mush consistancy, add sugar, brn. sugar, or honey....and down the hatch. That worked better then any other method for me anyway. And yeah..I agree with the fiber helping poop-shoot problems.

Regarding Fertilizer: The fertilizer used in growing the plants is incorporated into the plant by means of increased, or decreased plant tissue mass and alterations in the alkaloid composition of the plant tissue. If you are concerned about the health consequenses of ingesting organic(raw manure) fertilizer, then that poses certain health risks(i.e. bacterial, viral, and "other" infections) ranging from mild to life threatening.

Dr. Steve, I am curious If you still practice medicine??? Was your liscence taken away??? I remember you said something about doctor shopping they accused you of. When you were a doctor did you help people out as far as pain medication goes??? PM me if you have a good list of doctors you know that are liberal on pain medication. My general gives me around 60 hydros a month but I miss the oxycodone he prescribed and am looking to find a doc who will prescibe more.I have legimate pain problems that have effected me for years.Thanx for the help

I retired my license after a low-back injury. It was several years after that when I was accused of "Deception to obtain a Dangerous Drug". This is still dragging on. I am a Forensic Examiner and currently just do consulting work. In the practice I used to work at, we had several anesthesiologists that did all of the pain management. They did basic nerve blocks in the office and other "more invasive" blocks at a local outpatient surgical center. I used to perform spinal manipulation under general anesthesia, but the pain management physicians usually handeled all of the prescribing for our group. The remainder of the time I did electrodiagnosis (EMG/ECG/EEG/NCV/etc.).

If you are looking for a pain management physician in your area, just ask your local pharmacist and they should be able to refer you to someone local.

Thanx Dr.Steve . In my opinion you are a kind and generous person and I would be too happy to be treated by such an open minded Physician. My concern with fertilizers has more to do with chemical fertilizer specifically and the latex production period wich requires a fertilizer high in nitrates. It`s very hard to tell when and if these chems are metabolized by th flower. Is this a potential problem ?

Thanx

   not really, the plant uses fertilizer like me and you use food, so its mostly consumed and converted by the plant. there has been some discussion and testing by the food and drug admin about this topic, and they don't generally see it as a big problem. plus when you make the tea, your using hot water above 180 degrees, which kills most germs and bacteria.

   Eating dry powder isn't an efficient way to do PT. You've got to extract the alkaloids out of the straw first, and this requires heat and a decent volume of water. It's not the same if you just drink cold water with the powder.

Plus, you're taking a risk by not boiling the PT before ingestion. Boiling will kill most pathogens that might be found on dried pods, bacteria for sure. You don't know where those pods have been, you know?
