In the Middle Ages, the monks founded the first monasteries in Denmark and they brought medicinal plants with them. The plant, which probably originates from the Orient, is already known from 3-4 years BC. and is described by the Greek scientist Theofrastos how to make an incision in the capsule be able to extract a milk juice with poisonous effect. Later, this milk juice was used against headaches, stomach upset and as a sleeping and intoxicant. The plant's botanical species name somniferum comes from its sleep-inducing effect. Of the dried milk juice (crude opium), opium is produced and, among other things, morphine, codeine and noscapine. The seeds - also called birch - are used as sprinkles on e.g. Bread.
