If you eat a lot of poppy seeds you can have a positive test for opiates in general, not for heroin specifically.

Can you test positive for marijuana for eating poppy seeds?

Worse. It doesn't show up for marijuana, but it does show up for heroin. So if you eat a poppy seed muffin you will now test positive for heroin for a little while. (This is no joke it has been tested and proven)

What can cause a false positive test for meth?

i have herd that eating poppy seeds that are found in pastry cakes can cause a false positive test for meth. poppy seeds cause a positive for marijuana - not meth. Actually you are both very wrong. Poppy seeds can cause a false positive for opiates(heroin, morphine, etc). Opiates are made from the poppy plant. Wow who ever said these top two are STUPID. I am speachless.

How much Heroin does it take to show up in a UDT?

Basically if there is any heroin in your system it will show up on a UDT. The test is so sensitive that eating foods containing poppy seeds can cause a false positive. This is because the UDT isn't measuring the levels of heroin in your body, but the levels of a heroin metabolite. This metabolite is also a byproduct of poppy seed digestion, hence the false positive.

It could be from poppy seeds in certain breads, like the poppy seed buns on fast food sandwiches and burgers.

Why would eating poppy seeds show up positive for THC in a drug screen?

no how could it ? poppy seeds don't come from the same plant and you would need to eat a cup of seeds to get remotely close to a positive for opiate screen

What can cause a morphine false positive?

Codeine will cause a false Positive Morphine. Morphine is what would deem a person to be using Heroin. After-all heroin is (Acetyl-Morphine) Which is household Vinegar and Morphine. Its done through a process called Acetylization during the conversion of Opium to Heroin. Another way to show up Positive for Morphine is from Poppy Seeds. The federal cutoff for Morphine Positive is 1500 (The Military Serves Poppy Seeds in meals) For a state or local entity it may be 200,500 or 800. This is why its NOT a good idea to eat ANYTHING with Poppy seeds near test time. *If you do show Pos+ then make sure you have EXCEEDED or Met their cut off or its deemed a FALSE POSITIVE. Same goes for any tester who never received or requested your Morphine Level. IS A FALSE POSITIVE! :-) SO anyone who tells you that Poppy seeds do NOT mess up your urine is full of $h1t. Poppy seeds are from the SAME plant/flower that is used to make Heroin. The Other version aka California Poppy produces NO SEEDS and is non-narcotic. I hope i helped you finally understand.

By eating a hamburger bun that has poppy seeds on it? Not very likely. By eating a few pounds of poppy seeds all at once? Maybe- but you will have digestive problems so bad you would not be worried about a drug test.

What would make you test positive on a drug test if you don't do drugs?

There are none. Some say poppy seeds will result in a false-negative. This is wrong. Heroin and other opiates are derived from the sap of a Asian poppy flower. Not the seed ^.^

Can eating expired poppy seeds make you sick?

Eating ANYTHING expired is unsafe.

Can caraway seeds cause you to fail a drug test?

No. That was poppy seeds, and the current "cutoff" for opium--the amount of opium metabolite you need in your system to trigger a drug test--is high enough that poppy seeds, so long as you're not eating them by the spoonful, won't trigger a positive test. Caraway seeds are fine, though.

Can THC from poppy seeds show up in a urine screening?

NO, it cannot. THC comes from the cannabis plant not any opiate plant, ie poppy seeds. You would test positive for opiates after ingesting poppy seeds, not THC.

In most drug tests, yes. But I believe there are better tests out there that don't get false positives for poppy seeds. If the test will show a false positive they will warn you before

Do sesame seeds ever caused a false positive for drugs or do only poppy seeds do this?

Sesame seeds are fine to eat for people who can get tested for drugs. Poppy seeds are a different story. FWIW, some agencies have raised the cutoff for opiates to 2000 ng/ml to eliminate poppy seed as a cause of a positive opiate screen.

Can eating poppy seeds really make you test positive for opiates?

YES! I am an RN on a jobsite where we do frequent drug tests on the employees. When a coworker and I had some downtime we had this discussion. I had eaten ONE Landshire Roast Beef and Cheese sandwich with poppy seeds on the bun for lunch. I went ahead and did the urine drug screen on myself approximately 2 hours after eating the sandwich and the result was POSITIVE for opiates!!!My coworker verified the result. It was negative prior to eating the sandwich. This was a pretty standard instant drug test so the answer is a big YES! My coworker and I also watched the episode of Mythbusters on Youtube that questioned this same thing and the guys were both negative for opiates prior to eating the poppy seed cake/ bagels and were both positive for opiates approximately 18 hours after eating the poppy seeds
