    California Poppy does have psychoactive properties but it certainly won't get one "high" or give them a "buzz". It is a very mild sedative that helps promote relaxation and may also have some anxiolytic properties. It serves as a good sleep aid, and may help with stress and anxiety but it doesn't really have any recreational value. If one were expecting to get a buzz from this plant they would be expecting too much and most likely end up missing what it does have to offer.

    Why not experiment for your self? Get some poppies, start small and consume larger doses until either you get bored, sick, or high. Do it over the course of a few weeks, make sure you don't build tolerance with day after day of experiments. Sometimes people will find a plant that most poopoo, will have wonderful results for them.

    Cali does contain some alkaloids which are considered to be opiate alkaloids. HOWEVER, these alkaloids are only used to convert to other alkaloids in the medical industry (takes an expensive lab) or as a homeopathy relaxant.

    Thebaine: Converted into other alkaloids in the medical industry.
    Papaverine: considered to be a very mild relaxant, does have other medical values. (specific).

    Thebaine has oripavine as a metabolite, which can be dangerous SWIM thinks.

    Look up those 2 alkaloids in wiki, it will tell SWIY all that SWIY needs to know. Probably look up opium poppy and california poppy also to compare.

    But the short answer is, no SWIY will not get high, sick perhaps, but not high.

    Hope this has been of help :)

    There are alot of health food stores that sell Cali poppy tea.It is said to help with relaxation and sleep These places also sell dried poppy leaves that are used for smoking and making tea .In all actuality it is a placebo effect.There are VERY little/no alkaloids in th Cali poppy that will give you the results of the Papaver Somniferum.

    Actually i have read report of people obtaining very very small amounts of O from them but the amount needed to get high would be in the 100-150 range that being said if you have a tolerance you will need about six acres of the stuff
    i believe the morphine content is like 0.01%
    just start growing some Good Ole Paps and call it a day. its not worth it i tried obtaing latex from about 20 plants and had the equivalent of a single mist droplet if not less.
    Hope this helps
