Wild lettuce has long enjoyed a special status among pharmaceutical plants and has been a valuable ally as a tranquilizer and pain reliever.
Used as a sedative when opium was not available, it induces a "hypnotic state marked by vivid and colorful dreams".
The Hopi Indians, tribes for which dreams were of primary importance, used Wild Lettuce to induce dreams containing abundant information about reality and to receive prophetic dreams. It was often drunk or smoked just before sleeping to optimize the effects.
Based on its representation in Egyptian hieroglyphics, Leaf Lettuce commonly known as wild lettuce is believed to have been used for its psychoactive properties in ancient Egypt.
It often appears in Egyptian art associated with the god Min, the god of the desert, lightning and sandstorms. He is also known as the god of procreation and fertility.
Min was symbolically represented by lettuce and the phallus.
The ancient Egyptians allegedly owned a love book that contained aphrodisiac recipes, many of which were said to have been prepared with wild lettuce.
Emperor Augustus, the first emperor of the Roman Empire, attributed his recovery from a dangerous disease to wild lettuce. He then built an altar in his image and erected a statue in his honor.
Dioscorides, famous physician, pharmacologist and botanist of ancient Greece who wrote the five volumes of "Materia Medica" - the forerunner of all modern pharmacopoeias - attributed to this plant the properties of effective pain relief and sleep aid.
Hildegard von Bingen - a highly respected, visionary 12th century author who wrote pioneering texts on the healing powers of natural healing and medicinal uses of plants, animals, trees and stones - helped establish the psychoactive reputation of wild lettuce in his writings.
