Similar to Morphine: The Best Natural Painkiller that Grows in Your Backyard

From injury to disease, pain is a very common ailment or symptom that can take down the toughest of the tough. It’s so prevalent that we are seeing a major epidemic with opiate dependency. Unfortunately, with so many needing to find relief, it’s leading to a large portion of our population becoming dependent on a chemical bandage, often just masking the problem, rather than fixing the cause.

Unfortunately, it’s getting so widespread that the medical field view many of those in real need as “seekers”. So, instead of getting relief from tangible pain, people are being turned away. As a result, they are finding it illegally, and pain clinics and rehabs are popping up all over, trying to combat the addiction.

Wild Lettuce as a Healthy Alternative

Wild Lettuce (Photo Source)

Lactuca Virosa is the scientific term for it, and many people have used it in place of addictive prescription pain medicine. It’s a leafy and tall plant, with small yellow buds, and could be grown right out your door. More commonly found in North America and England, it’s a cousin to the lettuce we typically see at the grocery store. It’s also referred to as bitter lettuce, or more appropriately for the purpose discussed here, opium lettuce.

The reason it’s referred to as opium lettuce, is due to the pain relieving and sedative effects that it has been known to produce through a white substance found in the stem and leaves.

This milky substance is called lactucarium. And, while it doesn’t contain any opiates, it has similar side effects when used –  it acts directly on the central nervous system (CNS) to lessen the feeling of pain, just like morphine.

Even though it seems to be the best kept secret, it has a history of being used as an alternative to pain relief.

Historical Use

Back in the 19th century, wild lettuce was already being used by some as a substitute to opium. But, it was in the 70’s that it started to gain significant popularity by those wanting a more natural remedy. Individuals were starting to use it for both pain relief, as well as recreational purpose.

In the earlier days, people using wild lettuce prepared it a couple different ways. One way was to cook the plant in a pan of water and sugar mix, until it reduced to a thick syrup-like consistency. While this was an effective form, it was quite bitter even with the sugar added. The most common form however, was drying the stem and leaves to use as an herbal tea.

The tea remains popular today. But, it’s also being dried for smoking, or vaporizing. If you don’t care to grow it yourself, it can also be purchased as a dried herb, extract, or resin substance.

Other Benefits

Here are the more popular reasons people are gravitating towards this natural pain killer and medicinal plant:

  • Migraines – People who use it for this purpose claim that they experience fewer migraines than they did prior to starting the herb.
  • Insomnia – A frequent use of wild lettuce is by people who have trouble sleeping. It produces a relaxed and euphoric feeling, helping a person fall asleep easier, without the addictive qualities of commonly prescribed sleeping aids.
  • Anxiety – Wild lettuce can act as a mild sedative, allowing people with anxiety to find a reprieve from the stress it causes.
  • Asthma and Cough –  Wild lettuce has antitussive properties, which alleviates or suppresses a cough. Also, asthmatic patients who have used opiates notice more episodes if they go through opiate withdrawal. So, the use of wild lettuce instead of prescription opiates, could be a better option for them.

In addition to the above benefits, wild lettuce produces a euphoric state, similar to opiates, even though it does not contain any actual opiate… so it’s perfectly legal.

    How is it used? Do you just eat it? I keep all of the extra pain killers from my doctor in the freezer to try and keep them good in case of emergencies. That’s one big problem with being prepared. There is no legal way to secure opiates and antibiotics and even when you can they have a relatively short shelf life. More information like this please.

      The antibiotics used for veterinary purpose are in-fact the same drug prescribed for humans. It is a matter of dosage that commands prudence. I buy tetracycline without question at local feed store. I also have a copy of “Physician”s Desk Reference”. NO-I don’t consider using these versions of anti-biotic except in emergency.

        You bet-yes I think people are going to experience real problems ahead if wounded or injured. Opiates were legal in the 19th century across counter in the form of laudanum and paragoric. Hopefully in a national/societal breakdown Americans can protect medical infra-structure.

          Paragoric was available over the counter, if you went to pharmacy in 1oz bottles well into the 70’s and 80’s.
          You could also get Turpinhydrate, a codeine cough syrup in 1oz bottles.

    I am finding that, more and more, we need to get back to “the old ways.” Our forefathers knew a lot about what plants treated certain conditions. Needless to say, their knowledge was probably from indigenous people who depended on local plants for whatever was wrong with them. The old ways with plants were the best when they can be used in place of modern medications. In some cases this isn’t possible, not because there isn’t a “plant for that”, but because we don’t know enough about plant medication.

    The article mentions that wild lettuce induces a mild euphoria, but it fails to mention if the plant is physically addictive like opium and methadone.
    IS the plant physically addicting, causing withdrawal symptoms when discontinued? Can it be used to help the transition to sobriety for opium addicts?

        Milk weed and wild lettuce r 2 different plants yes. But if u look at the pictures better there 2 different plants showing. The milk weed has a jagged pointy leaf and a single thick stalk. And the wild lettuce has a slightly jagged leaf with a rounded tip. And a branching stalk. And neither of them have anything to do with snakes, except a snake might slither through them on its way home lol.

There is no way any snake would do something like that. Even if they could, it would be totally ineffective against snake venom. Also, wild lettuce and milkweed are two different plants. Neither are useful against or for snakes. 🙂

        I don’t even know about the milky stuff but the leaves of milkweed are at the least toxic to birds. It IS THE REASON that Monarch butterfly larva (aka caterpillars) ONLY eat milkweed. The predator kingdom has learned to stay away from the larvae infused with the toxins.

    We called this milkweed as a child and it is quite bitter.

    • JPM March 21, 12:38

      This is not the “milkweed plant”. It oozes a milky like substance “like” milkweed but once you see the plant, you’ll know it.

      It grows 7-10 feet tall, strong hollow stem, leaves are narrow, long and jagged, small yellow daisy type flowers when it blooms. The plant grows very fast and very tall throughout the summer.

      To get the “sap”, just slowly peel a leaf downwards. For me, I just lick the end of the leaf and use my finger to wipe up what’s dripping off the plant. It IS bitter. Depending on how bad the pain is, more than one is necessary at times. I am NOT a doctor, this is just what works for me.

      I have them growing all over my property and just discovered them last year so am transplanting them to a central location for easier harvesting rather than running all over my property trying to harvest them.

      You can cook the leaves down, put in some Vit E and keep in fridge for a few weeks, or you can freeze a bunch and take out what you need for a tea.

      Hope you read the part where I am NOT a doctor. It’s not habit forming, at least for me but I use it very seldom.

      Another plant you may want to look in to is called “Toothache Plant”. You can chew the leaves or the seed head and it numbs your mouth and tongue for about 15 mins, depending on how much you chew it. It’s a lifesaver for that unexpected toothache or cold sore. Kinda like benzocaine on steroids…lol. I’ve made a tincture out of it and it’s one of God’s gifts.

    Fantastic post, thank you so much!

    FYI, recently bought a book called “The Survival Medicine Handbook: A Guide for When Help is NOT on the Way,” by Joseph Alton MD. It’s got all sorts of useful home-remedy-type info in it, like this. Discusses dental problems too. Sometimes the author is brutally honest, and says that in a collapse-scenario, with no modern hospital facilities, this or that type of illness or injury will simply not be treatable.

    Quite an expensive book IMO, but I’ve found it’s well worth it.

      I completely agree with Linda S. I am an Agriculturalist and different people react differently to different plants. To some people, the sap is toxic. To others, it works as a mild pain killer. It may not work at all, it depends on your body. I can see this plant disappearing in people’s fromt yards now because everyone thinks it’s a cheap and easy pain killer to get high from.

Wild lettuce hovers on the ground and grows 6-10 inches tall and about that big around similar to dandelion. it does secrete a very small milky substance but nothing or not nearly as profuse as the milkweed plant.

      Wild lettuce is a biennial plant. In the first season you only get a rosette. In the second season it bolts and can shoot up nine feet, believe it or not.

    I wish you had given better directions for proper ethical foraging rather than whack it all down and use it for tea.

    If you only take a few leaves at a time you leave some for the rest of us. Taking the entire plant to dry doesnt just take the plant but also disrupts a very prolific seeding cycle. Better really to collect seeds and grow it yourself in the backyard.

    Don’t do it. Wild lettuce can have medicinal qualities but it also can be fatal . Most milky white sap is toxic.

    Here’s a page with lots of pictures of it. Scroll down a bit on the page. That site is calling it Lactuca serriola…

    Ummmm…not to be TOO obvious, but I can buy Poppy seeds for my garden, too. I have no idea how to process them into an actual, usable drug, but HEY! Google!

    I was told by training staff when I was trying for my CDL to avoid bagels with poppyseeds for the duration of our training period.

    Apparently, every poppy seed has a trace amount of opioid within it. Not enough to actually do anything, but if you eat them all the time it can show up as a positive on a drug test!

    Wild lettuce would be better, ha ha.

    It looks like lettuce that has bolted, which means flowers&goes2seed.all lettuce when it bolts secrets that milky substance and therefore is bitter. Usually u eat lettuce when it’s young b4 it flowers and starts 2grow upward and b4 it secretes this bitter milky substance.

    I used to be an Operations Manager. Part of my responsibility included all the HR as well as sending new hires off for pre-employment drug testing We had a candidate…a young clean-cut, dean’s list kid…in other words, not your typical drug abuser prototype who failed the drug test. I thought he would just about pass out when I informed him of this!

    Upon further investigation, it turns out the kid ate a Lemon-Poppyseed muffin EVERY DAY for breakfast, lol!!!

    Just like Macy said, it showed up as a trace amount of opium as if he may have done opiates at some point within the past several months. The lab explained that this scenario with poppy seeds in the diet showing up like that…especially when eaten on a regular and/or frequent basis, is not all that uncommon however. Crazy, right?!

    Just makes it really hit home that the drugs we put in our bodies are REALLY made from some of the normal foods we’re eating every day as well as those plants/flowers that might be growing in our back yards.
