Thebaine is an opiate alkaloid extracted from the papaver somniferous and papaver bracteatum poppy plants. Thebaine is also known as codeine, methyl enol ether, and paramorphine. It is available as a minor constituent in the range of 0.2–1.5% in the opium poppy and has a structural configuration similar to morphine and codeine. Its physical properties are that it is a crystalline, white substance that is slightly soluble in water. Thebaine is a more lethal substance than morphine. Therefore it is categorized as a poisonous alkaloid. The major producers of thebaine from opium poppies are Australia, Spain, France, and Hungary; together, they produce 90% of thebaine globally. The pharmacodynamics of thebaine is that it has a stimulatory effect by acting on the opioid receptors present in the central nervous system, whereas morphine and codeine have a depressant effect. If ingested at high doses, it results in convulsions similar to strychnine toxication.

According to the data presented by the International Narcotics Control Board, the estimated area involved in the cultivation of opium poppy rich in thebaine is 16,800 hectares. Thebaine is classified as a Schedule II substance under the Analog Act of the United States and the Controlled Substances Act of international law. It is classified as a Class A drug under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 in Great Britain. Thebaine, as such, does not find any medicinal use but is employed as a raw material or lead substance for the industrial synthesis of opiate narcotics such as nalbuphine, naltrexone, naloxone, oxymorphone, oxycodone, buprenorphine, and other narcotic drugs that find therapeutic use. Major companies such as Noramco and Tasmanian alkaloids are actively engaged in the cultivation of the varieties Papaver somniferum and Papaver bracteatum to extract industrial-grade thebaine. They work in collaboration with the customers to provide thebaine with the highest level of efficiency, purity, and supply security.
