Lady's slipper (Cypripedium calceolus var. pubescens)

Read about this on an erowid trip report, supposedly similar to opium, has anyone heard of it or even tried it?

Here's the link to the erowid trip report if anyone is interested

Lady's slipper (Cypripedium calceolus var. pubescens) is a beautiful yellow-flowered orchid native to my region of western Canada. I had read in the book Magic and Medecine of Plants that lady's slipper root had once been used as a substitute for valerian root, and there was a little warning that large doses could cause 'giddiness, headache and hallucinations'.
