Very good mega!
To the person who didnt mention these because of fear of T&C violation, this is being presented in a hypothetical scenario where the government has
effectively ceased to function, the same goes for most police and military. This is in the event of .. global catastrophe, and then you are just a
person in a shattered world, the laws won't matter at such a point.
It is not illegal to grow poppy flowers, this is correct. I have done it before just to see the pretty flowers, they are so beautiful when they
finally pop out into flower mode .. but before they become a flower, they look alot like a weed or a cabbage, heheh. Almost identical to a common weed
in fact, until the upright stem begins growing after the first month and a half of germination. Takes 3 & 1/2 months until the flowers have fallen off
and the seed pod has ripened in the center of where the flower used to be, from the point of planting them to the end.
It is extremely easy, and legal, to attain poppy seeds, you can order specific strains over the internet which is a big sham and waste of money, you
can order actual dried poppy pods off the internet for floral arranging and wreaths and such, which contain at least a hundred tiny seeds in each one.
Also, I have a friend who tried growing Mccormick brand and it worked! Worked just fine .. they came out quite nice actually. So it can be done with
even that brand .. so pretty much any brand from the store spices aisle will work if you dont want to bother with the internet.
Good luck & Happy growing!
PS: They are extremely potent for pain relief. If a person who does not regularly take opiate/opioid substances for pain or physical dependency were
to ingest just one large, fresh poppy seed pod the size of a tennis ball, grinded into a pulp and mixed with ice and your choice of pulverized fruit,
they'd be pleasently surprised within an hour of drinking it that their pain would be subsiding. They'd probably even start nodding off and having
day dream visions ("pipe dreams"), and this would last for 12 hours after ingesting it. What you'd be ingesting contains over 30 different
psychoactive compounds, the most important three are: morphine (calcium morphenate), codeine, and papaverine, which is a naturally occurring muscle
relaxant also found in that plant.
So it is definitely something God-given, for why would this exist, creating chemicals that work so well in our human brain chemistry? It is quite
amazing to think about it .. and the reason "why" a creator would add poppies to the world is obvious; to ease mankind's severe pains. Since it is
legal to grow, theres no harm in purchasing a fair bit of seeds off the internet or you can try your luck with the grocery store kind. I've got like,
a punch bowl full of them .. maybe 10lbs heavy!
On the east coast and states bordering those on the east coast, with the present climate and nature cycles, if you intend to grow some of these
flowers, they're best planted after the winter solstice, and absolutely must be in the ground by Easter, or they are gonna die off from the heat in
June. The idea is to get them fully mature and ready to go by the middle of June. Cooler temperatures and sandy soil work best for them, but theyll
