PAPAVER SOMNIFERUM VAR. NIGRUM. Source of opium and the narcotic alkaloids, morphine and codeine, used to control pain, coughs and diarrhea. Opium has been used and abused for centuries for its painkilling and euphoric properties. For palliative care, morphine is now the painkiller of choice but is highly addictive. As significant as the plant is medicinally, it is far more important for its culinary uses. Its seeds,which do not contain alkaloids, are widely used as 'poppy seeds' on breads, cakes, bagels, and in Middle Eastern delicacies such as halva. The seeds also yield a good quality oil used for salads and to make soap, ointments and paints.-- BLUE SEEDED (var. nigrum) Slate-blue seeds, commonly used on baked goods.

Price: $1.95/pkt
