Wild Lettuce called to me at a time when i was experiencing serious bodily pain from the shifting state of motherhood. My joints were swollen; i couldn't squat down without feeling like i was breaking in half; my hands swelled every morning. Six months after birth, with no end in sight i was pulled to Wild lettuce. She said "hang me to dry, tincture me, make me your friend." And i did. Just being in the physical presence of her started to shift my bodily state without even physically imbibing her! Within two weeks of her hanging and drying i felt serious relief. I learned from her that she has opiod like substances within her latex ooze. She has a gentle calming effect and helps with symptoms of Rheumatoid arthritis.
