The Hopi smoked the resin, or sap obtained from the Wild Opium Lettuce (Lactuca virosa) plant in ritual. This resin is called lactucarium which may function as a hypnotic sedative or pain killer with effects that are comparable to opium, however much milder. In Victorian times Wild Lettuce extract was often used to adulterate real opium, as well as used as a substitute. Wild Lettuce is also used to enhance the vividness of dreams. (Lucid Dreaming).
