St. John's Wort
Studies have shown that hypericin and related bioactive constituents are concentrated in the flowering buds of St. John's Wort. We have standardized our harvesting process to retain hypericin in the flowering buds, without compromising other active constituents. We are careful to select only the buds in consideration of this activity. The fresh succulent flower buds are hand-harvested earlyin the morning, before the full strength of the sun hits the plant material. Working with our own crew, we harvest this quality plant material in the pristine mountains of northern Washington near the Canadian border. The fresh plant material is then extracted by adding it to alcohol immediately upon harvesting at the harvest location.
