(Zhi) Gancao is arguably the most often used herb in the world, because 1) Chinese herbalism is the most widely used herbal tradition on the planet, and 2) Gancao is included in small amounts as the so-called servant herb in almost every Chinese formula. When baked with honey or barley malt, its spleen tonic qualities become enhanced, a fact that makes Zhi Gancao one of the most important herbs in yang tonic traditions, i.e. Shanghan herbalism or the Fire Spirit School of Sichuan herbalism.

The best type of Gancao originates in China’s Northwest in the provinces of Gansu and Neimeng (Inner Mongolia), where it once was exclusively wild-crafted. Due to extensive global demand, much of the present supply is now cultivated.

Classical Pearls sources its Gancao from the wild open spaces of Gansu province. Since most of China’s honey supply is encumbered by an enormous presence of fake products, we established a direct relationship with mountain farmers in Shaanxi Province who provide genuine and naturally produced honey for the processing of our Gancao. Specifically, the honey utilized for the processing of Classical Pearls’ Zhi Gancao products comes from bees feeding on the nectar of Dazao (Jujube dates) blossoms–a traditional requirement for honey when a warming/tonic rather than a cooling effect is required.
