Product Overview

These ship bare root. In other words, you will receive a root that is to be planted and grown. Sassafras isn't cloned like most plants, because it requires root division and manually separating it by the roots. The plant will then grow from there. Research how to care for these and grow them from rooted segments prior to buying. Be prepared. I'll upload pictures so that everyone can see exactly what they would be paying for.

Sassafras (Sassafras albidum) root was the original source of flavor and psychoactivity in old school Root Beer recipes! The FDA banned it in any product intended for human consumption back in the 1960's. It's legal, just not to put in anything that's marketed for internal use. It's got a rather interesting history in the United States. All parts of the plant have been used in some way! From culinary, to use in herbalism, nearly every culture has prized this plant in some way, shape, or form. It generally has some interesting ethnopharmacology, and the safrole content of the bark contains fascinating phytochemicals as well.. Once these are in stock I will add photo's of what you'll be buying. These plants for sale will be at least this size, maybe bigger.

Phytochemical constituents: Thujone, Mucilage, Safrole, Camphor, and methyleugenol, a-Phellandrene, fi-Phellandrene, and I-Menthone, to name a few.
