Product information

Seeds of the wild lettuce (Lactuca virosa), also known as 'opium lettuce'. This plant was originally found in southern Europe, but now it's widespread throughout central Europe and parts of North America.

A juice (latex) called lactucarium can be extracted from wild lettuce. This juice was used in the 19th century as a sedative and opium substitute.

The Lactuca virosa is a biennial that grows between 60 to 150 cm tall, with light yellow and basket-shaped flowers. It flowers from July until September.

How to cultivate wild lettuce

Gently press the seeds into moist soil and water them. Seeds will normally germinate in 7-14 days. Transplant seedlings to rich, moist soil and full sun, spacing 60 - 90 cm apart.

Wild lettuce prefers loose, well-drained humus soil.


Lactuca virosa can be used as a sedative. The dreamy effects are a little bit similar to opium but milder. Wild lettuce can help reduce the feeling of restlessness during stressful times.

Some Indians use the herb to enhance the vividness of dreams. They believe that induced dream states provide more information about reality than the conscious waking state.
