The main appeal of California poppy is its natural sedative and mood-supportive quality, which is derived from alkaloids in the aerial parts of the plant, providing temporary relief from minor pain and anxiety, as well as sleep support. These alkaloids affect GABA-A receptors in the brain as anti-inflammatory agents, blocking serotonin and noradrenaline transporters, and delivering antidepressant-like effects on the body. The aerial (aboveground) parts of California poppy, such as the leaves, stems, and flowers, may have depressant properties, partially blocking serotonin and noradrenaline transporters. However, further clinical studies, especially on humans, are needed to determine the link between the plant and its alleged sedative (tranquilizing), anxiolytic (anxiety relieving), analgesic and antinociceptive (pain blocking) effects. In addition, some research suggests that California poppy extracts may inhibit Dopamine-B-Hydroxylase, a neurotransmitter that carries signals between brain cells, contributing to feelings of reward and reinforcement, as well as addiction
For instance, a study on mice confirmed that liquid extract of California poppy at doses above 100 mg/kg helped induce sleep. When administered at a dose of 25 mg/kg, the supplement had a positive effect on mood and behavior in the mice. Another study on human patients diagnosed with General Anxiety Disorder who were given California poppy extract showed statistically significant benefits associated with anxiety over a period of three months.
Like its family members, California poppy can be used for pain both topically and internally. Specifically it can be used for pain that gets in the way of sleep or nerve associated pain like sciatica and shingles. It has also been used in formulas for toothaches, teething in children, menstrual cramping with sharp pains, and intestinal spasm.
California poppy is also connected to the heart and due to its complex array of alkaloids that are hypotensive in nature. It has been used to gently relax blood vessels and breathes a sense of serenity into the heart. This effect harmonizes restlessness that settles in around the heart such as nervous palpitations or hypertension resulting in a peaceful, relaxing state of mind. It’s analgesic, antihistamine, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, anxiolytic, bitter, diaphoretic, diuretic, hypnotic, a nervous system relaxant, a sedative and vulnerary, (healing of wounds).
