What classification of drugs is derived from the opium poppy?

Heroin.. In my 'improved answer' I interpret the word "classification" as a legal term. It can also be a medical classification term as well. The answer given was: Heroin. The opium poppy yields several natural occurring alkaloid's of opium. Most are narcotics and one is not,(Papavarine). In short, from a legal definition, most drugs derived from Poppy's are classified as a Schedule II (2) through the Controlled Substance Act of 1971 or 1972(While President Nixon was in office). Also note that Codeine can be classified as a Sched.III (3) BUT only if it is mixed with certain amounts of Aspirin, Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc. Plain Codeine Sulfate/Phosphate NOT MIXED, is a Sched. II (2)... If any of you have a question that you do not feel has been answered on Answers.com, simply Goggle/Bing, etc your question and you will get the correct answer you need. Thank you for allowing me to "edit' this answer.... Tom

How is opium made?

Opium is not made, rather it is drained from the seed pods of mature poppy plants (of the opium variety). Once a mature plant drops its flowers, the seed pod becomes ripe after 5-12 days. Upon ripening, the seed pods are slit open (about 1/16 inch deep) with a sharp blade, and a white latex (opium resin) drains from the cuts. After it dries, it turns to a brownish color, and is collected by the farmer. The dried latex is then either smoked as is, dissolved in warm water and filtered (then evaporated to make purified opium), or the opium is used to separate the different opiate alkaloids (like morphine, codeine, thebaine) for drug production.

How do papaver somuniferum reproduce?

Opium Poppies are asexual, meaning a male does not pollinate a female. In fact, there is no male or female. One Papaver Somniferum (opium poppy) will spread around 1,000 seeds at the end of its life cycle.The seeds are produced in the center of the "pod", and will be spread once the petals fall, the "pod" swells, and eventually falls over and decays.

Why did england sell opium to china?

I assume you're talking about the start of the Opium War?

Well, Chinese people back then believed that China was the closest someone could get to heaven on earth (the Middle Kingdom). So, when the British tried to trade with them, they refused to buy the products from the "barbarians." Meanwhile, the British kept on buying tea from China. The British were loosing tons of money, so they decided to start selling opium to the Chinese. Once this happened, people wouldn't stop buying it, and the British were making money again.

This ultimately started the Opium War, where the British fought the Chinese over the right to sell opium. The British destroyed the Chinese. (Fun fact: That is how the British got control of Hong Kong, which they kept up until 1997)

How do you extract opium from poppy?

best way to do so is make poppy seed tea. get some poppy seeds (darker seeds are the most potent) (300g to 500g first timers start lower) and put them in a 2 l bottle. put in water and some pure lemon juice and shake like crazy for 20 or you can shake for 5 min and let it rest for 10 min and repeat and do this for an hour, the longer the better. also the darker the mixture the more potent it is. then strain the liquid into another container and drink it, u may want to add something to it because it tastes quite awful. Grapefruit is best because it increases the high. then in about 20 or 30 min u should be HIGH.. this is because when u shake the seeds u are removing the morphine and codeine of their shells.................................................if u want pure opium you can get it from their pods.. you wait 3weeks after the flower petals fall off, then you make 1mm horizontal slices along the pod with a razor blade, then wait for a few hours and scrape off the opium resin from the pod and let it dry for a few days, you can repeat this every week but each time you get less quan/qual..... hope this helped! jus be careful with the tea cuz u can OD and dose vary randomly with different batchs experiment first until u find the right amount to get u high

33 micrograms of morphine can be extracted from 1 gram of poppy seed. Thus 6000 grams (6Kg) of poppy seed renders 33 grams of morphine. A typical single dose for an adult is 10-20 milligrams. Do the math and have fun!

How is poppy plant made into Opium?

Well basically when the red petals of the plant fall off the green bulb of the plant remains. You make a small shallow cut all around the bulb and a white latex substance will come out and start to dry and in 3-6 hours a yellow Brown substance is formed which can then be scraped off the bulb. This is opium in its most basic form. Please do not use this for any illegal purposes.
