Wild lettuce doesn’t disrupt the digestive system, and it may be a soothing agent for headaches, muscle pain, and other complications. Due to its soothing effect, it might help with people suffering from akathisia or restlessness.

Does Wild Lettuce have any side effects?

Every organism is different, and wild lettuce might have some effect on your nervous system different from what other people may experience; just like any other type of herbal medicine, it should be consumed responsibly. Studies have shown that wild lettuce can cause side effects such as dizziness, sweating, nausea, vomiting, and if consumed in large quantities, it may cause auditory hallucinations and breathing issues.

How to use Wild Lettuce?

You can find all sorts of supplements that use wild lettuce as the main component, but these often contain other ingredients that can diminish the natural effect of this plant. You can prepare your own wild lettuce remedies at home in these two different ways: tea or extract.

  • Wild Lettuce tea – To prepare a tea, add 1-2 tablespoons of dried wild lettuce into 1 cup of boiling water and let steep for 10-15 minutes for desired strength. Add honey or sugar as a sweetening agent if you so desire. This tea will have a bitter taste, but it can be more effective.
  • Wild lettuce extract – To prepare an extract, add the 3oz bag into a pot of warm water (NOT BOILING). Soak for 8 hours. Sift and press all the liquid out of the leaves. Boil the liquid to reduce it to the desired concentration.
