Wild Lettuce: A sedating and relaxing herbal alternative

Wild lettuce is an age old remedy, used throughout the 19th century when stronger sedatives, such as opium, where unavailable. It is still used for these qualities today, but in more of a herbal and recreational capacity.


The effects of wild lettuce are very similar to opium, but milder in nature. However, the active compounds of wild lettuce are not opioids, and do not cause addiction. As such, wild lettuce is considered legal throughout the EU.

The sedating quality makes wild lettuce a great way to relax after a hard day or calm down during periods of restlessness and excitability. The calming action it has on the nervous system is thought to improve the sleep.

Many report that wild lettuce can help reduce intestinal pain, as well as pain associated with rheumatism.

Wild lettuce has also historically been used to improve the vividness of dreams.


The best way to use wild lettuce is to brew it into a tea. Place 1-2 teaspoons in a cup or tea infuser, and fill with boiling water. Allow it to steep for 10-15 minutes before drinking.

It is also possible to make an extract from this dried wild lettuce. Soak the plant matter in warm water (not boiling) for 8 hours. Sieve out the plant matter and press it. The dark liquid that is pressed out is then put in a bain-marie to evaporate excess liquid. You should eventually be left with a gummy, thick substance.


Wild lettuce can be highly dangerous at high doses. Do not exceed the recommended dose.

    I made 20g in to a cup of tea, I felt nothing.


    produit de compromis en attendant mieux...

    Le produit n'est pas adapté.
    La laitue vireuse se consomme sous forme d'extrait ou de latex. Vous n'aurez strictement aucun effet avec cette tisane. Lettuce is consumed as an extract or latex. You will have absolutely no effect with this herbal tea.


    laitue vireuse
    Je l'ai essayer pour sa réputation sinon Je ne recommande pas.


    Excesiva rama y efecto que no cumple expectativas.
    En todo caso la cantidad es la adecuada. Consumo en infusión casi exclusivo. Probaré hacer concentrado para valorar de nuevo.


    It's 100% stems / es todo rama
    If you are going to make it into a tea (that tastes quite bad in my opinion) I guess it dosent matter, but if you want to vape it or add it to your smoking blend it'll be impossible, the steams are so hard and thick that you wont be able to grind them, I thought it would be all leaves but... Si lo que pretendeis es hacer un te (que en mi opinion sabe fatal) supongo que da igual, pero si lo comprais para vapearlo o añadirlo a lo que querais fumar sera casi imposible, al ser todo rama y ser muy gordas no las puedes ni grindar, a parte tiene alguna cosa como algodonosa, que no se que parte sera pero claramente no es fumable, y no hay ni una hoja que es lo que se supone que podrias querer fumar o vapear


    Je la fume car cette plante est tres forte alors agif au infu


    not the best for me


    compared to other brands bad quality
    very many sticks a half centimeter and above. weak. unappetizing taste. compared with quer beet clear bad quality.
