Wild Lettuce: WebMD says it’s good for everything from swollen testicles to getting high!

Wild Lettuce. Tough to get a clear picture of this spindly 10 foot monster. D. rug it all around F. Slocum yesterday trying to get it to come into focus. Maybe as web.md said it already got me high, a good old contact high. Stranger things have happened.

lettuceBlurb is from web md. note last line: some people use it to get high. well, there’s enough of it around if you are.

Wild lettuce is used for whooping cough, asthma, urinary tract problems, cough, trouble sleeping (insomnia), restlessness, excitability in children, painful menstrual periods, excessive sex drive in women (nymphomania), muscular or joint pains, poor circulation, swollen genitals in men (priapism), and as an opium substitute in cough preparations.

The seed oil is used for “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis) and as a substitute for wheat germ oil.

Some people apply wild lettuce latex directly to the skin to kill germs.

Some people inhale wild lettuce for a recreational “high” or hallucinogenic effect
