How to use this extract
This is pure dehydrated extract of wild lettuce. It is quite bitter and is best mixed with warm tea. It can also be used in any preparations where lactucarium is called for. We are often asked if it can be smoked. Though it can be added to a smoking mix, we did not design this as a smoking product as it is an extract and not the dried gum that can be gathered from the plant. It is best when made into a tincture or mixed into a beverage. The old fashioned dose is .3 grams to .5 grams, and no more than 15 grams per day. The effects are mildly sedative and pain relieving.
Lactucarium can be harvested either by an alcohol and water extraction, or by scarring of the stems of the plant and gathering the white juice. When harvested directly from the plant it dries into a dark, reddish substance. We make our extract by maceration and reduction under a vacuum. The whole process is done at a temperature that is low enough to preserve the active components. We freeze dry it to make it easier to handle. Wild lettuce extract is hygroscopic, which means it will pull water from the atmosphere and become sticky. It is best to leave the unused portion in the wax paper bag and sealed in the tin.

We have 10 gram tins and 100 gram tins available. If you need larger sizes, contact at any time. We pack our tins in 10 gram units, sealed with a desiccant square to keep your extract dry. The extract can be stored indefinitely.
Ingredients: Contains 100% genuine wild lettuce extract with no fillers. Does not contain desiccants or maltodextrin.
Traditional directions of use: Our sticky extract comes in 10 gram packets. According to the classical literature, a dose of wild lettuce extract, also called lactucarium, is 3-15 grains, or .194 - .972 grams. So basically the classical dose is .2 – .5 gram.
In an essay published in 1846, by Emile Muchon, in a book of pharmacy entitled The Chemist, the total daily amount should not to exceed 15 grams.
