    California poppy (Eschscholtzia californica) is a natural pain relief remedy that has been used historically to treat insomnia, aches and pains, nervous conditions, childhood enuresis, and bladder disorders. The herb is sometimes confused with the opium poppy (Papaver somniferum), but it does not produce opium. It is an opiate like substance that is non-habit forming! It has shown to be effective for the treatment of lower back pain, sciatica, dysmenorrhea, fibromyalgia, tension headaches and insomnia.
