California poppy is definitely an under-appreciated for its medicinal properties. This perennial herb is native to the west coast, particularly California. It is the state flower of California and can be found growing abundantly along highways and roadsides there. It is a common garden flower, but few people realize it’s herbal uses. All parts of the plant are used medicinally and can be harvested at any time. Fresh material is best. The fresh roots were reportedly rubbed on gums as a treatment for toothaches or were dried for making tea. The leaves, pods and flowers are smoked or made into a strong tea for relaxation, pain relief and insomnia. Tinctures or resinous extracts are also used.
