About Reishi

This mushroom is one of the most respected medicinal mushrooms in Traditional Asian medicine (TAM), also known as the ‘Mushroom of Immortality’. Reishi’s reputation dates back as far as 2,400 years, as it frequently appears in ancient Chinese and Japanese artwork. However, the mushroom has likely been in use as a medicinal herb for over 4,000 years across the Eastern hemisphere, including both Korean and Indian cultures. An annual, growing on a wide variety of woods, typically saprophobic, primarily on deciduous woods, especially oak, maple, elm, willow, sweetgum, magnolia and locust (Stamets & Wu, 2002).

The myth of Magu tells of a beautiful folk woman who lived on Guyu Mountain and practiced Taoism. Magu used the water from the 13 springs on the mountain to brew Reishi wine. After 13 years, the wine matured and Magu became immortal. Magu features in both Chinese and Korean literature. She is typically portrayed as having healing powers and as having gifted the world with the healing herbs of cannabis and Reishi.
