Also known as
Lactuca virosa, Opium lettuce
Wild lettuce is an age old herbal remedy that has been used to soothe the nerves, calm the mind, relax the body, and relieve minor pains. It is non-narcotic and contains no opium, despite some of the names.
Tea made from the plant has a calming, pain relieving, and centering effect. It is recommended to be brewed in amounts ranging from 2-8 grams with additional herbs.
Wild lettuce is a mild pain relieving herb that was more commonly used when stronger pain relievers were not available. A resin can be made by extracting and concentrating the actives, and this resin is reported to be much stronger than the herb itself.
