Please note: Real wild ginseng grows naturally in forests without any human intervention. This means: no fertilizer/pesticides have ever been used. Wild ginseng represents less than 1% of all types of American ginseng. Much of what's claimed to be wild ginseng has actually been tampered with. However we guarantee the authenticity of W Ginseng's wild American ginseng. All of our wild American ginseng is at least 10 years old + hand picked.
