Closer to Smoking Lettuce than Opium

1 bowl smoked Lactuca - L. virosa (dried)


When I ran across Opium Lettuce on the internet I thought 'cool a legal opium type buzz, I'm there.' The stuff I got in the mail looked like lawn clipings, I smoked a joint of it and it tasted like lawn clippings. I looked up on the internet to make an extract out of this. I put it in a jar with water and I froze and defrosted several times to weaken the cell structure. I then boiled and let stand overnight; strained and evaporated over a low flame. I came out of it with a little residue with a tecture like hash, I smoked it and felt a minor buzz. The buzz was very minor. The taste was not bad and the smoke did not stink. My distilation process produced very little of the substance so I took the plant substance I strained, soaked in water, put through a vegtable juicer, and then evaporated the juice. This time it produced quite a bit of the substance with the hash like tecture. My advise, dont waste your time with this stuff, the buzz if any is minimal.
