Caifornia Poppy Compared to Other Herbs

For the last two months I have been trying herbs for chronic pain. I ordered numerous legal herbs that can be bought online.

California Poppy seems to be the only herb that had an obvious effect on me. I did not notice it as much until I engaged in an activity, like going to the kitchen, talking on the phone or driving.
[Erowid Note: Driving while intoxicated, tripping, or extremely sleep deprived is dangerous and irresponsible because it endangers other people. Don't do it!] Driving a car while smoking California poppy is not advised.

This herb had a very calming effect on me.
