How does California Poppy work?

California poppy contains chemicals which might have sedative effects.

Are there safety concerns?

California poppy appears to be safe for most people when taken appropriately by mouth for three months or less. There isn't enough information to know if California poppy is safe for long-term use.

Do not take California poppy if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • You are scheduled for surgery in the next two weeks. California poppy might cause excessive sedation if combined with medications used during and after surgery.
