Californian Poppy is a safe and non-addictive plant that makes a calming tea and satisfying smoke with a gentle, relaxing effect.
California poppy has a reputation of being a milder, non-addictive alternative to other poppies, and can be used for pain relief, anxiety and hysteria.
The native Americans use California poppy for colic, sleeplessness and griping stomach pains. It is often used to counter excitability and nervousness in children, and has promise for hyperactive children as well. When used as a tea before bed, California poppy promotes long, restful sleep and is often used as a treatment for insomnia. This wonderful herb can also be smoked for relaxation.
As it is completely safe, mild and non-addictive, this gentle poppy is completely legal and has the potential to be of benefit in assisting with opiate addiction and withdrawal: drinking strong tea or smoking the herb as often as needed, has been used to help overcome heroin, morphine and opium cravings. It has also been known to assist in interrupting cannabis and tobacco habits.
Preparation: Boiling water onto 2-3 teaspoons of herb, steep for 5-10 minutes. Drink 3 times daily.
