                 Opium lettuce lives up to its name, being a historic alternative to opium. It offers mild psychotropic effects of a hypnotic and sedative nature. It's native to the regions of South Eastern England, the Punjab region of Pakistan India, and Australia. Sacred plants such as Wild Lettuce have a long history of spiritual use by various cultures around the world. Shamans and other mystics have consumed plants for their enlightening properties for many centuries. These wise individuals choose to live off of the earth, and in sync with the cosmos. They have righteously respected nature while learning to understand and co-exist with the wonderful gifts that it has brought.


                 Wild lettuce use has been documented as far back as the 19th century. Physicians would use it when Opium itself could not be obtained. In 1911 this herb was extensively studied by the Council Of The Pharmaceutical Society in Great Britain. They discovered two amazing chemicals found in the plant. These two chemicals are known as lactucopicrin and lactucin. They are the mystical source of the effects induced by this incredible herb.


Fortunately, this plant is un-scheduled by the FDA, meaning that it's perfectly legal to grow, purchase and own without a prescription or license. These sacred plants should be respected, understood and embraced by the modern world. We have truly lost sight of the ancient ways and turned towards a new world of limitations, greed, and generally un-conscious life-styles. I say we all turn back to the old world ways of life. The new world has brought us distractions, destruction, hatred towards one another, and a large range of pharmaceutical drugs that seems to cause more problems than they supposedly treat.


                 On a final note, many people believe that alternative medicine is bogus and not backed by any science. They mindlessly chant the mantra "There is no scientific evidence to support that", without taking the time to do the research and find the scidence. This is not the case at all. Plants produce their own chemicals that are well known to have pharmacological value. It's called phytochemistry.


Phytochemist are chemist who seek to understand pharmacological compounds made by plants. Wild lettuce produces many of these pharmacological gems. The chemical known as lactucarium has sedative properties. This makes it a very valuable ethnobotanial for helping to induce sleep. It also shows promise as a galactogogue. Galactagogue is not only a really hard word to pronounce, it refers to a genre of chemicals that increase breast milk production. It naturally produces and contains galactagogue compounds. The compound Lactucin is an adenosine receptor agonist, while another, lactucopicrin, has been shown to act as an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor.
