Front: “PAPAVER SOMNIFERUM Medicinal plant” Inside: Blank Back: “Plant - Opium Poppy Medicinal drug - Apomorphine Treats - Parkinson’s symptoms People with Parkinson’s don’t have enough dopamine because the nerve cells in their brain that make it have died. Apomorphine acts like dopamine to stimulate nerve cells which control movement and other body functions, helping to reduce the symptoms of Parkinson’s. The Opium Poppy, Papaver somniferum, contains morphine (opium) which, when heated to high temperatures with an acid, produces apomorphine.”
