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.

    Title : Was Neues ausprobieren!!!
    Comment : Da ich oft unter sehr starken Schmerzen u.A. in den Fußgelenken leide, habe ich mir Giftlattich bei Zamnesia bestellt um ihn im Vaporizer zu verdampfen. Das klappt sehr gut. Als Tee schmeckt er mir gar nicht. Aber wenn man für den Tee statt Wasser Milch nimmt, bekommt man einen leckeren wohlschmeckenden Sud der eine super Wirkung hat. Am Anfang habe ich die Milch durchgesiebt und es war lecker. Jetzt habe ich die Milch mal mit den gesamten Bestandteilen des Giftlattichs getrunken, alles auch die Stiele waren ganz weich und super Lecker. Und die Wirkung ist sehr gut. Die Menge der Dosierung muss jeder für sich selbst herausfinden, wichtig ist nur immer mit kleinen Mengen anfangen.

    Title : Nice product
    Comment : Bought this by curiosity. The price is a bit high for 80g but it's okay. I did drink it with hot water and smoked it, it's nice to relax a bit. Gives a sleepy feeling, relaxes the muscles. Don't use to much or you'll have a beautiful headache. I recommand this if you want to quit smoking tobacco or weed.

    Title : Ganz OK
    Comment : Aus Giftlattich stelle ich meistens ein Extrakt herstellen. Dieses lässt sich gut in einer Pfeife rauchen. Verglichen mit echtem Haschisch ist die Wirkung sehr subtil, aber das Preisleistungsverhältnis ist überaus günstig. Einen Punkt muss ich allerdings abziehen, weil das Kraut schlecht zerkleinert ist und mitunter sehr groß Stängel enthält.
