The Drought is Over….

Help Spread the Word!

Hello everyone!  I wanted to take the time to write a post updating the current status of:

  1. The PSTR Community Update
  2. Unwashed Poppy Seed Availability

This will be a less formal version of many of our informative guides that make up this amazing web based resource.  With all of that being said, I believe it is time to get started….


I want to start off this section by apologizing for being MIA during the beginning of the most recent seed shortage.  I was in the process of building the PSTR team, and I should’ve placed a bigger focus on reaching out and guiding many lost members of this community.

Now that I have built up our team, we will be able to focus on providing even more content.  We will be expanding this PSTR Community into an expansive online brand.  In addition to providing excellent content in the form of these posts and guides, we will also be engaging in social media outreach, producing enhanced video content (YouTube), enriching our weekly newsletter, and anything else we can think of to expand our reach.

We want to continue to spread relevant information about PST, and I would like to personally thank each and every one of you for helping us get to this point.  All of your feedback, comments, link clicking, emails, etc. have helped motivate me and transform PSTR from a tiny website to a full blown community full of engaged members.  Thank you!!!!


The drought is over!  Many members of our community freak out every time there is a shortage or delay in the unwashed poppy seed supply.  I will be posting an expansive post detailing why the shortage occurred, but it roughly follows the same template as previous shortages.  You need to remember that this is a crop, and there is an English Poppy Seed Harvest that is necessary to procure this precious resource.

I like to focus on the positive side of things, and there are a few things that I am very happy about:

  1. The unwashed poppy seeds are back
  2. The quality is VERY good (at least with recent Blue Bird)
  3. The prices have remained roughly at the same level (unlike 2017 price hike)

There are people that state that “the sky is falling” every time that there is a whiff of a shortage.  I try to ignore these people in other areas of my life, and I do the same here.  While there is some reason to be concerned over the very long term availability of high quality seeds, I have reason to be comforted.

There is information that I have discovered as a result of studying this topic for an extended period of time, and it makes me feel better knowing that there are powerful forces that are interested in keeping this around (similar to kratom).


Great unwashed poppy seeds are back, and they are tastier than ever.  If you want a list of my favorites, check out the Current List of Best Unwashed Poppy Seeds.  Relax, everything is going to be OK!

The PSTR Team is stronger than ever, and this Community will begin the next phase of expansion.  If you have any questions, post a comment, or send me an email @

  1. Brandon my wife and I have used this tea safely for over a year. It allowed her to stop seeing her pain management dr. Just curious if it was possible to turn the tea into a powder. I’m guessing this would take a lot more work. I figured this is possible even if a bit wasteful. Any thoughts?
