Foraging: Oregon Grape

2018 brings a new year of harvesting medicinal herbs and other plants out in the wild of the pacific northwest – Did you know? We gather all kinds of wild herbs and plants to create powerful extracts. We blend these organic extracts with pure cannabidiol to create natural pain management recipes!


Here’s a great herb to keep an eye out for while you walk through the forest this spring in Western Washington:

Oregon Grape (photo above) –

“Oregon grape root is renowned among herbalists for its ability to stimulate liver function, improve the flow of bile, and for blood cleansing. Oregon grape root uses have traditionally included treating both liver congestion and infectious conditions of both the stomach and intestines. Another benefit of oregon grape root is its functioning as an antimicrobial. For these reasons, youll find it in Jon Barrons Liver Flush Tincture and Blood Support formulas.

When used on the skin, Oregon grape has been found to combat certain skin irritations. Studies have concluded that herbal remedies are often more effective on dermatological conditions than pharmaceuticals, and the Oregon grapes power to help fight psoriasis and atopic dermatitis would seem to support that claim.

You can use the roots and stems to make a tea, tincture, oil infusion, or salve.  If you don’t live in western states or can’t seem to find any wild Oregon Grape in your area, you can always order the root from Mountain Rose Herbs.”

When to harvest?

Gather the roots and lower yellow stems mid summer to winter, the leaves through mid-summer to fall. The washed roots should be chopped fresh while still fresh, especially if you have some large diameter taproots. They are tougher than they look – take my word for it. the leaves can just be stuffed into a paper bag and dried. M. Pinnata can grow in some pretty gnarly places and will have very high levels of berebine if growing upside down in doslodged boulders or experiencing other botanical ordeals.



The dried leaves, stored of out light, will last for up to a year; the dried roots and stems will last several years.
