Lactuca spp. refers to the genus of plants commonly known as lettuce. Lettuce is a popular leafy green vegetable widely used in salads and various culinary dishes. While it is primarily consumed as a food source, some varieties of lettuce, such as Lactuca virosa, also known as wild lettuce or opium lettuce, have been historically used for medicinal purposes.

Lactuca spp. contains lactucarium, a milky substance with mild sedative properties. In traditional herbal medicine, the liquid extract of Lactuca spp. is sometimes used to promote relaxation and alleviate mild forms of anxiety or insomnia. It is important to note that while some herbalists and individuals use Lactuca spp. for its potential calming effects, scientific evidence supporting its efficacy is limited, and caution is advised.
