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.

EFFECTS

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.

USING WILD LETTUCE

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.

WARNING

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

    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.

    Title : Peu d'utilité
    Comment : En soit la plantes permet de se relaxer légèrement, peut aussi mettre un gros coup de barre, je pensais que cela pourrais être utile pour le sommeil mais non, elle donne un sommeil très lourd, bien pire qu'avec un énorme joint. De plus elle ne doit pas être consommer en trop grande quantité sinon elle fou un putin de mal de crâne le lendemain. Je ne recommande pas.

    Title : wirkt gut, aber schlecht zerkleinert
    Comment : ich finde es ist wirklich ein sehr gutes Produkt und hilft ausgezeichnet beim einschlafen, entspannen oder beim Tag ausklingen lassen. Das einzige Problem, dass die Kräuter nicht genug zerkleinert sind und manche stücke einfach 6 cm und länger sind... Abgesehen davon gibt es keine Mängel und Preis/-Leistungsverhältnis ist auch sehr gut.
