Shit!  Great point.  So maybe US stuff is the better bet?

It would be hard for me to comment, as while I've experimented with ginseng in the past in numerous varieities, eventually I concluded it wasn't for me. And it turns out ginseng, in general is a vata (air-space consitution) rasayana, and I'm not a vata. So I've ended up experimenting with other herbs and compounds. Although I've been hiking in forests in the northeast where it was everywhere, I've left it be.
