Poppy seeds have a very small concentration of morphine and codeine. These are probably not enough to give you the effects of what heroin would do to you, however it is very possible for it to be positive on a drug test. To eliminate false positives caused by codeine or poppy seeds, there are cut-off levels that will basically allow a certain level of these "Drugs" in your system. This means that if you decide to have a poppy seed bagel in the morning, you may have traces of it in your urine but not enough to make your result positive.

When in doubt, call the manufacturer of your medication to determine whether or not this specific medication will affect your test results.

Hi willis

Codeine is a narcotic pain medicine. You can look up these words in our search engine to help you understand more.

Did you watch the Seinfeld episode last night, you must have - we saw it too! It's where Elaine gets fired from her job for failing a drug test, only to find out it's from eating her poppy seed muffins every day!

If you think you might be taking a drug test soon you should watch your diet but other than that, you'll be fine!
