Wild lettuce is said to enhance the vividness of dreams. Oddly enough, this hypnotic has been around for centuries, but is little known. The Hopi, according to available literature, smoked the resin obtained from the Wild Lettuce (Lactuca virosa) plant. IT was smoked in rituals that were intended to help induce vivid dream states and lucid dreaming. The Hopi believe that dream states contain more information about reality than the conscious waking state.
