Pure Organic Menthol Crystals
Pure organic Menthol Crystals are chemicals produced by plants in the mint family. They are the active ingredient in menthol cigarettes, cough drops, and other over-the-counter medication. Of course, none of these menthol laced pharmacy products give you the raw power of pure menthol. :)

Opium poppy

The Opium poppy itself was used in ancient times by cultures who did not prohibit the use of this plant as a medicine. Today, drug companies extract the active pharmacological alkaloids from it for profit. They won't allow people to cultivate and use this medicine on their own. The seeds are still legal, and have been utilized by holistic practicioners. Be weary tho because the seeds can cause you to test positive for opiates on a drug test, including heroin.
