Know Your Ginseng!

American Ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) can be grown in several ways. Each method of growing ginseng carries a term which is descriptive of the conditions under which the ginseng is grown, and the value of the ginseng is dependent on the method in which it was grown, the region in which it was grown and in the case of wild ginseng, the size, shape and age of the root.

Wild ginseng is native to the US. Over-harvesting and a decline in natural habitat have irradicated wild ginseng in many states and most states now regulate the harvest and sale of wild ginseng. Wild ginseng is by far the most sought after and the most expensive type of ginseng. The climatic and soil conditions in northern states like Minnesota, Vermont and Wisconsin create a noticeable difference in the wild ginseng roots, creating the most sought-after and expensive roots.

Wild simulated ginseng is ginseng that is grown from commercial seeds in a natural forest setting.

Woods grown ginseng is ginseng that is grown in the forest under controlled conditions which may include cultivation and the use of chemicals.

Commercial ginseng is ginseng which is grown under totally controlled conditions including the use of raised beds, chemicals, pesticides and artificial shade.

Consumer Alert: Commercial ginseng is available by the ton and sells for a fraction of the cost of wild ginseng. Most commercial growers use chemical pesticides and fertilizers. Powered ginseng is also sold in various potencies in tea mixes, tablets and capsules. Consumers should be sure to verify the source of ginseng and read the label on ginseng products to find the amount and type of ginseng that they are actually purchasing. In most cases, purchasing wild ginseng roots will not only provide a far better product, but a better value. In many cases, only a trace of commercially grown domestic ginseng is present in products labled with "ginseng".
