Harvesting Wild Lettuce
    #3010710 - 08/16/04 10:22 PM (9 years, 11 months ago)

I have several wild lettuce plants that have grown to 5 feet tall and have almost begun to flower. What is the best way to harvest this plant and when is the best time to do so? Should I incise the stem and collect the sap? Wait until it flowers and cut the seed pods? Collect all the plant matter and do an alcohol extraction? Any help is appreciated!

If you'd like to email a response:

theres several extraction teks on erowid.. they say the best way is to break off the flowering tips collect the latex break off another inch, repeat repeat repeat. You can also collect the whole plant and run it through a juicer. I dont hitnk making incisions is the best method but it can be done. Tearing the leaves down the stalk produces much sap. Its such a common weed around most parts that you dont have to be too resourcefull just tear up a bunch of plants and collect a little resin from each.

dont expect too much from it.

Yeah, I dont really think its worth the trouble.
I bought a 20x extract out of curiosity once, and after 2 complete bowls of it ( it tastes ok ) I was a bit stoned, like if I would have take one hit of a joint :smirk:

well, heres how I look at it, its such a common plant and its got a long history of use so if your bored its fun to explore the potential of lactucarium. Hmmm. now that I think about it, I wouldn't mind having a big brick of pure dried lactucarium around, just for fun. Really, the easiest way is to run through the juicer and dry/evaporate that down.
