More info


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.

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.

    lekker theetje, licht rustgevend
    Een lekker theetje, zeker als je van een stevige smaak houdt. De omschrijving dat dit kruid een soort opiumachtige werking zou hebben vind ik overdreven. Ik heb een mild rustgevend effect ervaren. Prettig om te gebruiken.
