Argemone mexicana Linn belonging to family papaveraceae is widely distributed plant in tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world. The Papaveraceae, also known as the poppy family, is a family of flowering plants with 44 genera and about 760 species that is significant from an ethnopharmacological perspective. In India, It can be found alongside roads, in fields, and near bodies of water. It has roots, flowers, and leaves. It also goes by the name "Mexican Poppy." The current paper provides a review of Argemone mexicana Linn. thorough chemistry and pharmacology. This plant is one of the most important species in traditional systems of medicine. Despite the fact that alkaloids are mostly prevalent, the plant is a source of a wide variety of chemical elements. Some plant parts have hazardous consequences in addition to pharmacological efficacies. In this article, phytochemical, morphological, microscopical, and pharmacological investigations are reviewed. Current knowledge about this plant's chemistry and pharmacology may be useful for directing researchers who want to conduct additional research in these areas.
