Eschscholtzia californica

California Poppy (flower) is a common West coast wildflower. It is traditionally used for its calming and supportive action on the entire nervous system. This gentle tonic acts as a sedative and can help with sleeplessness brought on by stress, pain, or anxiety. It may be useful for nervous headaches, adult ADHD and muscle pain. It contains similar opium alkaloids to Opium poppy, but is very safe and non-addictive. This plant is native to the United States and Mexico.
