Natural Supplements for Pain Management

Opium is a highly addictive narcotic drug acquired in the dried latex form from the opium poppy (Papaver somniferum) seed pod. Traditionally, the unripen pod is slit open and the sap seeps out and dries on the outer surface of the pod. The resulting yellow-brown latex, which is scraped off the pod, is bitter in taste and contains varying amounts of alkaloids such as morphine, codeine, thebaine and papaverine. Opium is the base for many legal and illegal drugs. Legal opium-derived drugs are typically used for pain management, while illegal opium-based products include drugs such as heroin. Heroin is generally sold as a brown powder. Street drugs like heroin can be especially dangerous, because they are not regulated, and their strength and quality depend on how and where they were made and how they are distributed. The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that 23% of individuals who use heroin become dependent on it. While heroin use is clearly dangerous, any opium or opiate use comes with risks.
