Bitter flavored poppy affects the liver and the nervous system. Generally, poppy is considered to be sedative, narcotic, analgesic, antidiarrheal, antitussive, and diaphoretic. It has commonly been prescribed for pain, insomnia, nervousness, coughs, and diarrhea. The biochemical composition of the poppy varies from one variety to the next. All contain a number of alkaloids with sedative and hypnotic properties including isoquinolones, which include papaverine and narcotine. The opium poppy contains morphine and codeine types while the California poppy is more gentle and contains flavone glycocides that are not considered narcotic. The parts of the plant used, medicinally, will differ as well; latex exudes from the opium poppy, the flowers of the red poppy, and the whole plant of the California poppy is useful in herbal medicine.
Poppy can be used to help relieve the support of pain, and as a sedative for insomnia. It is also used to help with anxiety, to inhibit the cough reflex, and to allay diarrhea.
