Over the years there have been a number of media reports and articles relating to the work of API Labs. Some of these reports and articles have contained incomplete or erroneous information. API Labs wishes to provide the following information to ensure that the correct information is available.

It is API Labs' intention to grow a high thebaine variety of a Papaver Somniferum Opium Poppy. The licenses that API Labs has applied for and has received from Health Canada are for this type of poppy.

In the industry particular Papaver somniferum crop varieties may be referred to by the predominant alkaloid species produced in that variety. For example, a "thebaine poppy" refers to a variety that expresses more thebaine than any other alkaloid. Likewise, a "morphine poppy" would demonstrate higher levels of morphine in its alkaloid profile than any other alkaloid species.

While some countries allow limited cultivation ( i.e. the UK and Australia) all Papaver Somniferum Poppies, thebaine and poppy atraw (the harvested poppy plant) in any form, are a controlled substance and a narcotic under Canadian law, and must be grown under licence from Health Canada. While thebaine is a controlled substance and a narcotic under Canadian law it does not have the narcotic properties ordinarily associated with the illicit drug trade and cannot be converted for use in the illicit drug trade without a complex, costly industrial process. Consequently API Labs believes the risk of illegal diversion of API Labs' thebaine poppy from the field is minimal.
