"...i must say after actually smoking the extract i was pleasantly surprised i was very calm and tranquil i did indeed get a buzz that i actually liked. A weed like high i guess you could say but its not exactly the same. It wasn't harsh, quit smooth compared to what i expected. "
"i had a migraine for 3 years that even doctors couldnt get rid of. and i just add like half a teaspoon to my teabags when i make tea. and it cured me i cant drink the tea all day and not have to worry bout overdose and it gives me a calm mellow feeling and no migraine. "
" As always, Azarius provided excellent service. "
"I've had nothing but good experiences from BBB [Bouncing Bear] over the years. The customer service is always very friendly (e-mail responses in a matter of minutes, usually). My orders always arrive no LATER than 3 days after I order and their products are second to none while still being about as cheap as I have seen."

"you can make small insicions in the stem and a milky white sap will come out much like opium (why it's called opium lettuce) and you just get some to drip on your knife and transfer it to a bowl let it dry and then smoke up!!!...I thought it was just like opium too, even tastes a bit like opium"
“ordered from these guys [Botanical Spirit] and got my first order in 2 days...premium stuff weighed out... i am very happy...thats customer service and care...”
"I ordered from Bouncing Bear Botanicals, and was impressed with the speed with which it was processed and shipped. In fact, when I received the box I wasn't sure what it was at first, because I thought there was no way I could place an order online on a Tuesday and receive my package that same week. I just placed another order..."
"It is fabulous stuff when smoked on the aluminium, really a nice stoned feeling. Get a little sweaty but very potent. Highly recommended and very legal. "
"“this is sweet. really really nice stuff:) the tea itself is quite nice, REALLY helps with the sleep, and even the buzzing in my ears. it's just a gentle, warm soft sleepyness it brings on. together with half a glass or so of wine, the best sleep you ever had! or just lie on your bed listening to music, erases all nervous thoughts. NICE! "
There are many varieties of plants that have amazing effects on the body. However, there are also some that have been banned because of their harmful properties. One of these plants is opium. It had been used mainly before as a medicine but it was abused and had been utilized to create heroin, an illegal drug. Another plant that is similar to opium is the Wild Lettuce, although it is not as harmful. Wild Lettuce could be found exclusively on the south east and east of England, as well as some states in North America like Iowa, Washington, Alabama, and California.
The Wild Lettuce has other names like Bitter Lettuce, Poisonous Lettuce, and Opium Lettuce. The process of extracting Wild Lettuce is done by deriving the latex from the stem, similar to how Opium is prepared. The extracts are often used for anesthetic and sedating purposes, as well as recreational. Some teas also incorporate Wild Lettuce extract and oils to induce sleep and there is also the galactagogue which increases the production of breast milk, although the sedative effects are not advisable for the infant. Other ways of using the Wild Lettuce is by adding it to salads, although its leaves taste more bitter compared to other greens. Another is by soaking the leaves in alcohol to create unique beverages.
As medicine, Wild Lettuce has anodyne, anti-spasmodic, hypnotic, and nervine properties. It is often used to treat insomnia, excitability and restlessness. Wild Lettuce could also be used as medicine to whooping cough and dry cough. Other uses of the Wild Lettuce are as an anaphrodisiac, relief from the pain of rheumatism, colic, and dysmennorhea. The Wild Lettuce was also discovered to treat illnesses on the reproductive system, like nymphomania in women, the excessive sex drive, and swollen genitals in men. The seed oil of the Wild Lettuce is also used to harden the arteries of the heart and the latex from the stems could be applied directly to the skin to kill germs. Some people also inhale the vapour of Wild Lettuce to obtain the high or hallucinogenic effect for recreational purposes. But then again, the properties of the Wild Lettuce that enables these effects are not as harmful to the health and society hence it is still legal to grow, purchase and use it.
In the internet, the extract of the Wild Lettuce could be purchased. These extracts could come from the stems of the plant or from the flowers. Another is the Lactucarium Powder which is the powdered form of Wild Lettuce extract. It is believed to be used as a medicine even back in the ancient times. The Wild Lettuce Flower Extract on the other hand is extracted from the flower buds of the Wild Lettuce. The buds are extracted using the maceration method and was able to preserve the sweet scent of the flowers.
Although Wild Lettuce is not generally harmful to the human health, it is still best to observe precautions. Wild Lettuce is not recommended to be taken on large amounts and dosages. Some of the effects of using large amounts of Wild Lettuce are dizziness, vision changes, sweating, palpitations, difficulty in breathing and even death. It is also not advisable for pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers, people allergic to ragweed and related plants, people with enlarged prostate and problems with urination, people with narrow angle glaucoma and those who will undergo a surgery.
