A "friend" of mine was wondering if this would be the correct method to make opium from dried turkish giant pods.please note that "he" has never done this before, hes only made tea.He was also wondering if the opium would be decent quality stuff.hes had the same pods before,and they have a good ammount of opium in them,and they were harvested this last fall.BTW it usually it takes about 3-4 pods to produce a good cup of tea,strong enough to get a person who can take 80mg of oxycontin at once high. tell me what u think,and feel free to criticize
heres "his " method
1/2 pint everclear
8 giant heads(should i use more or less?)
2 quart pot
t shirt filter
1 small canned good (for smashing in the everclear)
1 small pot for heating fluids
crush the pods into very fine pieces.remove any seeds(Theyre usually seedless)
remove any stem material.put the crushed pods into the pot and cover with half pint everclear.stir the pods,and smash with the can for ten minutes.let steep for one and a half hours, smashing thoroughly with can every 15 minutes and stirring.
after 1.5 hours, strain everclear through the t-shirt into the smaller pot for heating.set stove on the lowest setting and place pot with everclear inside on the burner,making sure to keep the temp as low as possible with a meat thermometer.evaporate everclear until there is a thick paste or goo at least the consistency of honey or molasses.
Bust out the vaporizor,then chase the dragon!
sound good? i, i mean "he" hasnt ever done this ,so if theres anything he needs to know that would help him out,any advice would be much appreciated!!! he just tracked his pods an they arrive tomorrow, so he needs advice soon!
Peace n Love
