Opium is the natural form of the main ingredient in opiate drugs such as morphine, heroin, and codeine.  In nature, it is found inside of the opium poppy plant and is the milky looking substance known as latex.  This product is farmed throughout the world and is used in religious practices, medical purposes, and as recreational by individuals who are looking to have a euphoric experience.

Opium farming has greatly increased in the Middle East over the years and they import the drugs into America in order to make profits.  Before they import  it into America, they usually convert it into heroin because it is a highly potent form of this drug that is very addictive and popular throughout the country.  Using it is very popular throughout the world and even though this drug is not as strong as morphine or heroin, it is still risky to use and does have negative side effects.

Opium Risks

OpiumSome side effects that come with using opium as recreational include:

  • Euphoria
  • Insomnia
  • Increased perspiration
  • Impaired vision
  • Decrease in sex drive
  • Loss of appetite
  • Increased urination
  • Vomiting
  • Changes in ones’ mood
  • Loss of pain
  • Emotional detachment

These side effects occur because it is the body’s way of rejecting the drugs that are being forced into it, and with continued use, death is a very high possibility.  Opium may be a natural product, but not all natural products should be used for your pleasure. Addiction to this drug can occur after just one use and this problem can turn your life upside down for the worst.
