The California Poppy (Eschescholtzia californica Cham.) has properties sedative and hypnotic that facilitates sleep onset, improves sleep quality, reduces anxiety and irritability without cause central nervous system depression and does not influence mental alertness.

Clinical applications

The California Poppy is used in treatment of insomnia and anxiety, often in combination with other herbs. Certain active principles in force in the extract, possess the characteristic to block the synthesis of catecholamines and the enzymatic degradation as well as arrest the monoamine oxidase B and dopamine-beta-hydroxylase.

Another capability of the California Poppy is to limit the processes of dimerization and peroxidation of the enkephalins, increasing, in fact, the action. A possible affinity between the alkaloids of the California Poppy and those of the papaver somniferum has been thought, by some authors, a similar action.
