It is important to note that in some American states, harvesting of ginseng is not allowed. Some states while declaring the harvesting illegal indicated that the wild American ginseng is an endangered species due to the very high demand compared to the supply. To some, even the wild ginseng found in the forest is only harvested by individuals or firms that are licenced.
The major reason why ginseng is common among people is because it holds a clinical medicinal value that helps control some common medical conditions. The chemical contained in ginseng known as ginsenosides is known to produce the medicinal value hence making the plant popular.
