About the producer:
Bhutan Cordyceps Sinensis was established in 2008. They have gained the reputation of being one of the most reliable cordyceps retailers.
Bhutan implemented sustainable harvest guidelines several years ago to protect the environment, the sustainability of the Cordyceps, and the collectors. Only skilled villagers from the Cordyceps growing areas are permitted to collect this special fungus. Harvesting is limited to one month a year, timed at a specific point in the growing cycle to ensure maturity and sustainability. Moreover, the process is overseen by local leaders and forestry services, who also keep an eye out for poachers.
