Wild Lettuce is more than a powerful relaxing herb,

It leads to the depth of the self with peace & clarity

For a long time, Wild Lettuce had a special status among pharmaceutic herbs and was a precious ally as tranquilizer and pain killer.

Used as a sedative instead of opium when it wasn't available, it induces a « hypnotic state filled with lively and colorful dreams ».

The Hopis, indian tribe for whom dreams were capital, used Wild Lettuce to induce dreams containing a lot of informations about real life and to receive prophetic dreams. It was often drank or smoked just before sleeping to maximize its effects.

Based on its representation in egyptian hieroglyphs, its suspected that Wild Lettuce was used for its properties in ancient Egypt.

It often shows up in egyptian art dedicated to Min, god of desert, lightning and sandstorm. He is also known as god of procreation and fertility. 

Ancient egyptians allegedly possessed a love book containing aphrodisiac recipes, a lot of them would have been made with Wild Lettuce.
