Please be responsible: All roots, herbs, leaves and barks must be legally obtained. Please check your states laws prior to removing any plant or plant part from its native territory.

We buy ginseng                           Wild and wild-simulated American ginseng roots can only be legally exported if they were harvested from plants that are 5 years of age or older and were legally harvested during the designated State harvest season.

Ginseng plants can be aged before they are harvested by two simple methods:

Count the number of leaves (also known as prongs) a plant has.
Count the number of stem scars on the rhizome (also known as root neck) of the plant.
