What the heck is up with the showrunners and opioids? It feels like someone once smoked banana peels and thought it was amazeballs and still edgy to this day and they can't stop telling everyone they meet about it.

That's a totally junk way of taking junk. The scene looked like boiling poppy seeds and inhaling the steam. The alkyloid content of seeds are negligible; it's the latex in the seed pods holding the seeds. Testing positive from "eating too many poppy seeds" only applies if the seeds are contaminated with latex from the pod (unlikely, as most commercial seed is washed). It is trivial to smear a bit of cured latex on something and applying a small flame to it (using a splint works) and inhaling the combustion product.

Likewise it "amuses" me when people take hemp seed oil and go on and on and on (and on and...) about how great CBD is (and depending on jurisdiction, a lot of what is "actually" CBD isn't or doesn't have as much as indicated, or is non-bioavailable because it had sequestered to the surface of the container and is just lost). Hemp seeds also have negligible amounts of any cannabinoid (including CBD), and commercial hemp seed and its preparations are washed.

Who knew? All Ivar needed was a couple of seconds of oral?

This Edic guy seems like a real asshole.
