This plant is also known as opium lettuce due to its pain relieving and sedative effects. It acts directly on the central nervous system to lessen the feeling of pain. I’ve found that its sap is so effective that you can numb even the greatest of pains. As opioids are becoming harder to obtain, wild lettuce seems like the best alternative to powerful commercial painkillers. Best of all, it’s not addictive and has no side effects. 

The plant’s sap can also be applied to the skin as a treatment for warts. Cover the wart with sap once or twice a day until the wart is gone.

Until tomorrow…
