Dr Poppy’s Wonder Elixir

Enamel plate advertising Dr. Poppy’s Wonder Elixir. The sale of this medicine, which contained cannabis extract, started in Australia in the late 1800s and continued up until the 1950s. It was recommended as a morning drink to get you through the day. “A glass in the morning is guaranteed to relieve symptoms and leave a pleasant feeling.”
