Who else uses this lovely invasive?  We do harvest it and take it to market as people just like the Harry Potteresque name.  In tea it does lend to lucid dreaming.  We have started adding it to salves as a gateway of sorts to help the other herbs get in there, and in a salve on its own for pelvic area discomfort from myriad reasons.
Also, any good uses for regular (not milk) thistle besides pulling and using it as a dynamic accumulator mulch?

Years ago, I used to infuse wine with mugwort, worked like a mild hallucinogen, lovely to get into a certain headspace.
