Wild Lettuce (Lactuca virosa) Dried Leaf
The Hopi smoked the resin, or sap obtained from the Wild Lettuce (Lactuca virosa) plant. The flower would be cut off and the sap that ran from the stem would be collected. Each day, for a few weeks, another tiny bit was cut from the stem and more sap collected. This sap was then air-dried and later smoked in the hopes of having vivid dreams that night. The Hopi believe that induced dream states contain more information about reality than the conscious waking state.
WARNING: Smoking of any kind, including natural herbal products is dangerous to one's health.
