Wild Lettuce, Organic, 1oz. bag
Lactuca virosa

Wild Lettuce is also known as “Lettuce Opium” because of the latex that exudes from the cut stems and leaves. This sticky white latex is incredibly bitter (meaning it is beneficial for digestion, among other things) but it is also a good nervine. It is considered anodyne or analgesic, a good pain relieving herb. Don’t worry though, this plant is incredibly safe, even for children. It can help calm a spasmodic cough and allow you to get much needed sleep. You can prepare a strong infusion of the leaves or if you are feeling more adventurous you can harvest some from the wild and collect the sticky white latex, allow it to dry and then smoke it like the old days.

Sold in 1oz. quantities. If you want multiple ounces, just add multiple quantities.
