Wild lettuce (Lactuca virosa)

Also known as opium lettuce, bitter lettuce, wild opium, horse thistle, China lettuce and prickly lettuce.

Opium lettuce, aka Wild lettuce, secretes a milky white ingredient known as lactucarium when it is scratched or cut.

This ingredient contains lactucin and lactucopicrin which are bitter substances that act on the central nervous system to produce pain-relieving effects.

According to research, these effects are as strong as opium but with fewer side effects.

Opium is a pain-relieving agent which is commonly used from ancient times. When dried, wild lettuce resembles opium.

Additionally, the lettuce also contains traces of hyoscyamine, which is probably responsible for its sedative effects.

Aside from pain, wild lettuce is also known for its ability to promote numerous health benefits. Listed below are some of them:

Helps to treat urinary tract infection

Decreases symptoms of anxiety and manic behavior Improves sleep patterns and prevent insomnia

Stops tension and pain in the muscles

Manage asthma symptoms and support respiratory health Reduces the frequency and severeness of migraine headaches.

Calms restlessness and excitability in children

Treats sexual disorders

Kills germs when the latex is applied to the skin

Aids with circulation and boost energy levels

Minimizes menstrual cramps

Calms excessive drive in men and women (nymphomania)

Lowers inflammation and joint pain Some similarities to opium include its ability to dull the sensation of pain while producing a mild, euphoric effect that can last for hours.

Also, those who are suffering from opiate withdrawal have reported having fewer and less-severe symptoms if they are enjoying the medicinal benefits of this plant.
