If you eat enough you can get high.

Eating poppy seeds can result in a positive opiate drugtest. That’s what I know it can do, so my guess is that you are able to digest them.

Poppyseed bagels and muffins are common. Only those w. digestive problems like diverticulosis or diverticulitis might have trouble. And they are not made from the Opium poppy..

myth busters did an episode on it and when they ate jsut 2 poppy seed bagles, they did test positive for opium….so id say they are relatives at least, i doubt youll get high from it but its still in your bloodstream

Well poppy seeds come from poppies, which is where opium comes from. So yes, they are related.
