Slowed Reactions, Altered Vision
Lactuca - L. virosa
by Smoko
Citation:   Smoko. "Slowed Reactions, Altered Vision: An Experience with Lactuca - L. virosa (exp65325)". Feb 16, 2008.

2 leaves smoked Lactuca - L. virosa (dried)


I'm 16, I weigh 50 kilograms and i don't exercise much. My dad grows wild lettuce in our back garden and I'm pretty sure he is unaware of its effects. I read about wild lettuce and from there decided to try it at my own free will.

Method: 1. I picked 2 full sized leaves off the top of the plant
2. Dried them in front of a wood fire overnight.
3. Wrapped in a joint and smoked.

After smoking the wild lettuce I felt my heart race increasing and was aware of fog everywhere (similar to smoking weed). My reactions were a little slower and my vision continuously faded away, as if I was closing my eyes, also my eyes were a little bloodshot. I was really freaking out at this point and was going to ring an ambulance. I was home alone and I live in quite an isolated area of California. I started to calm down and found the trip quite enjoyable, I would sum it up as, the same as smoking weed but without the munchies.
