Chaga is a super cool mushroom-like growth (technically a sclerotium ) that needs to be harvested very consciously both to get the proper benefits and to maintain a sustainable supply. We source ours through our own foraging and a network of friends in the Ottawa area, which limits production today in hopes that there'll still be plenty for tomorrow :)
