General Information

The seeds are important food items, and contain healthy oils used worldwide in the culinary arts.
opium and many refined opiates, including morphine, thebaine, codeine, papaverine, and noscapine, are extracted.

There is a common misconception that there is a clear distinction between poppies useful for opium extraction and ornamental or food poppies. It is not difficult to manufacture opium tea with a high morphine content from poppies readily available at flower shops.
Opium was used for treating asthma, stomach illnesses, and bad eye sight.

Many modern writers, particularly in the nineteenth century, have written on the opium poppy and its effects, notably L. Frank Baum in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and Thomas de Quincey in Confessions of an English Opium Eater
