Lactuca Canadensis has been called Lettuce Opium for thousands of years. It Has juice that is collected and then dried For later use. This plant has some great qualities and properties. This plant helps for pain and insomnia. Anyone that has problems sleeping at night would really benefit from this plant.

There are several ways to use this plant. My favorite being the great tincture. Everyone loves a potent tincture, no matter what herbs your using.  With a tincture you can make it the potency you desire. The method is simple soak in alcohol 90% 190 Proof such as ever clear (Best Choice). You want to leave it soaking for two weeks. Every day you need to shake the bottle that you have your herbs in, to distribute the plant mater.

Then after two weeks you should have a nice extract that you will be able to filter through a coffee filter. Discard the plant material and keep the liquid. After all this is done you want to evaporate the liquid to about half the amount it is now.

The results are A very nice potent tincture that really does the job.
