Item details

The California poppy, whose scientific name, the very complicated spelling, honors a Russian botanist illustrates, is native to lowland and coastal areas of California where it occurs on land rather dry, arid and sandy.
The California poppy acclimatize indeed very easily, it is also found in Chile as well in the south or west of France.

Eschscholtzia californica is usually annual, the cut foliage, pale green, yellow or orange flowers, sometimes almost red, very decorative.
The flower buds Eschscholtzia californica is characteristic oblong with a fairly sharp end, it has two sepals obsolete.
The flower terminal, with 4 petals contains many stamens and the fruit, an elongated pod, contains many small seeds that easily ensure the dissemination of eschscholtzia.

Native to the Pacific coast of the United States, hence its name California Poppy, and southern Canada, Escholtzia is a Native American traditional medicine, used for its analgesic properties this plant relieved population headaches and dental pain. If Escholtzia was introduced in Europe in the nineteenth century, it was originally, an ornamental plant. It is also at this time, specifically in 1820, the scientific name "eschscholtzia" was given to the California poppy, the German botanist von Chamisso Aldelbert in honor of botanist and naturalist doctor Baltic, Johann Friedrich von Eschscholtz. After colonizing European gardens, Escholtzia has been recognized for its medicinal properties and is part of the French pharmacopoeia today.

Parent of the opium poppy (Papaver somniferum), the Escholtzia however, is not a narcotic. This perennial or annual, depending on the variety, also belongs to the family of poppies and thrives in sunny areas and in a draining soil. At a height of 40 cm, it has green serrated leaves murky. Emblem of the State of California, it also produces bright yellow flowers or orange-yellow with four petals, whose flowering extends from spring to summer. Other varieties may produce pink flowers, red or white. The flower buds of Escholtzia is characteristic oblong, it looks very sharp end. The seeds are contained in an elongate capsule, which is the fruit.
All these eschscholtzia alkaloids were examined by pharmacologists. They do not appear to have significant toxicity except bloodroot. The latter is strongly suspected to cause glaucoma (open angle) up to blindness. This eye disease is serious and insidious. California poppy roots contain a lot of bloodroot by against it is present only in trace amounts in the aerial parts.

Eschscholtzia californica also contains many other more ubiquitous compounds: carotenoids (dye petals), flavonoids, phytosterols, and a cyanogenic glycoside: linamarin.
The Eschscholtzia californica was studied in France by Pharmacognosy Laboratory team at the University of Metz: Rolland A, J Fleurentin, Mortier F and colleagues.
They showed that the aqueous or aqueous extract of California poppy is in the mouse:
Low dose with an anxiolytic effect déshinbiteur.
Sedative in higher doses; This calming effect is proportional to the dose.
Similar to a minor tranquilizer of the benzodiazepine.

In addition, in vitro, we know that a eschscholtzia excerpt:
Is antispasmodic, perhaps because of the protopine, antispasmodic and anticholinergic.
Slows the heart rate.

Some alkaloids are cytotoxic, antifungal, anti-inflammatory slightly.

In herbal medicine, the affected parts of the Escholtzia are the aerial parts, consumed orally.

Quote some alkaloids Eschscholtzia californica among the most important:
Bisnorargémonine and Norargémonine (also present in the Argemone mexicana)
Eschscholtzine typical Californidine of California poppy. Fumarine and bloodroot found in many papaveraceae (sanguinarine, celandine, argémone).
Chelerythrine, and Chelidonine Homochélidonine also present in celandine.
Alkaloids aporphine Group: Lauroscholtzine, Glaucine.
Alkaloids responsible for the anxiolytic effect of Escholtzia are not soluble in water. Infusions are therefore not effective to treat mild anxiety.

- A California Poppy infusion is achieved with 5 g dried aerial parts, steep for fifteen minutes in a cup of boiling water and drink before bedtime.

The Escholtzia may be associated with other plants, depending on the desired effect: the poppy in case of nightmares, Eleutherococcus against enuresis, horehound for people who have difficulty falling asleep. However, California poppy will intensify the effects of other medicinal plants, particularly the kava, valerian, Jamaica dogwood and St. John's wort, with a risk of drowsiness.

Associated with the use of tranquilizers, the Escholtzia may enhance the sedative properties. It interacts with opiates, barbiturates and benzodiazepines. Any combination is not recommended.

The nickname "sleep of the plant" given the Escholtzia is not usurped. This plant has, in fact, all sedative hypnotics, with the great advantage of not create addiction. Alkaloids, which are the main components of the Escholtzia help to treat sleep disorders, sleep difficulties and nighttime awakenings. If the roots contain more alkaloids, they are not used in herbal medicine, because they contain sanguinarine, toxic substance and can cause glaucoma. Thanks to the presence of protopine, the Escholtzia is an anticholinergic and antispasmodic plant, which can help treat some pain. Finally, it will prevent a chemical treatment for mild anxiety with psychosomatic disorders, without having such significant effects that passionflower. (Doctissimo.fr)

Who has not seen graceful orange flowers with poppy pace sway in the wind? Much less sulfur than its cousin, the opium poppy, the California poppy (Eschscholtzia californica) is nevertheless endowed with remarkable medicinal properties. Sedative and mild hypnotic, it provides a restful and peaceful sleep. Slightly anxiolytic, it relieves stress and overwork. Free of toxicity, it is recommended in children. It is the flowers that is used.
