California Poppy, Eschscholzia california, is in the same family as the opium poppy and has mild sedative and analgesic properties, but is not narcotic. It helps to normalize the nervous system function to ease nervous tension, anxiety, insomnia, and pain (internal and external). It has an affinity for GABA receptors in the brain, calming the mind without depressing the central nervous system.
