I was out huntin wild seng when I stumbled upon some kind of a ancient ginseng spirit presumably caused by the pagan seng rituals that Greg Shook dismissed on the show Appalachian Outlaws.
Ginseng is found in North America and in eastern Asia (mostly Korea, northeast China, Bhutan, eastern Siberia), typically in cooler climates. Panax vietnamensis, discovered in Vietnam, is the southernmost ginseng known. This article focuses on the series Panax ginsengs, which are the adaptogenic herbs, principally Panax ginseng and P. quinquefolius. Ginseng is characterized by the presence of ginsenosides and gintonin.
Siberian ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus) is in the same family, but not genus, as true ginseng. Like ginseng, it is considered to be an adaptogenic herb. The active compounds in Siberian ginseng are eleutherosides, not ginsenosides. Instead of a fleshy root, Siberian ginseng has a woody root.
Personally I think this was one of the businessmen Mr. Lee sent to WV to watch over and threaten poor tony coffman, and he got his JUST DESSERTS.
