Wild Lettuce; Opium Lettuce; Bitter Lettuce; Laitue Vireuse; Tall Lettuce; Rahutu-Karyumu-So; Scientific Name Lactuce Virosa


         Opium lettuce lives up to its name, being a historic non-narcotic alternative to opium in herbalism. In herbalists practices it's prized for many things. 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 use by various cultures around the world. We must remember to thank God for the gift of medicine that gives us life, rather than turning it into an idol, hints why I post the first and second commandment all over this website. Graven image means a carved image, which originally was in reference to talismans, sigils, and other occult "symbols", which were originally carved. If you think hard enough, you can think of a few modern graven images that we should not be following.. "serpent medical", is a true descriptive phrase of this evil which exist in the world today. Modern medicine can do good things, but the people who control this game have bad intentions, and I have horror stories and solid evidence to prove it, evidence that could land some medical tyrants in serious prison time.


It is vital to drop false doctrine that has been tied to plants, for it is designed to trick you into practicing idolatry, yet I digress. 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. I linked to both on Pubchem, a public scholarly database of chemicals and plant phytochemicals, to prove that they are fact, they are scientifically confirmed, they are real, and this is not adulterated news. Watch out for diabolical far right narratives that seek to mislead you into following the wrong agenda, keep your eyes on Jesus instead. Anyway, these two components are the pharmacological source of the effects induced by this incredible herb, among the other fascinating chemical components that it creates as well. I wonder if there are any pharmaceuticals made from it seeing as how it's been researched by them? See the trend? Serpent medical only wants to rip you off, and steal your land after you die.


Fortunately, Lactuca virosa is un-scheduled, and not so much targeted by the FDA, meaning that it's perfectly legal to grow, purchase and own without a prescription or license. Kratom is better though so look into that first, but Wild lettuce is better for those who don't want any narcotic effects. Ever notice the government is ok with narcotics as long as they profit off of it or if you buy it from them? Otherwise, if God made it and you can grow it yourself, they'll come after you. This is the far right agenda we must legally end. These sacred plants should be respected, understood and embraced by the modern world, and we should thank God for them, and God alone. 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. I'm glad to see activist groups and organizations protecting herbal medicine and fighting for human rights. Opium lettuce really isn't anything that they should go after, because it's a subtle alternative to Kratom even.


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 according to the commercials theirselves. Some won't like that I said this but we're entitled to our own observations. I'm not making medical claims. I would like to point out that I back things up with scholarly citations on the bottom of every page. I also want to add that in Germany, herbalism is accepted by the mainstream medical establishment, and that they acknowledge the science behind its use! The truth is right in front of you, if you will question the narratives ( the lies that people repeat via trends and viral social media post ) Any one of us can be a vendor of adulterated verbal doctrine. Understand what gas-lighting is, smear campaigns, narcissist, projection, and take it seriously. See Psalm 91:1


I believe the real art of herbalism is knowing what to use when, and how to safely and effectively combine certain plants for their synergistic properties. You must acknowledge this biblical rule though first: Jeremiah 46:11 - “Go up into Gilead, and take balm, O virgin, the daughter of Egypt: in vain shalt thou use many medicines; for thou shalt not be cured.” I like Opium Lettuce with Burdock root, Chamomile, and Valerian root. I think the three of these go together great! 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 by those who practice alternative medicine. 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. You can learn more about these phytochemicals from the acaedmic citations referenced at the bottom of this page and all others on the site!

Revelation Chapter 10 1 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: 2 And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth, 3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. 4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. 5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, 6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: 7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets. 8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth. 9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey. 10 And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. 11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
