Profile: Actaea racemosa is a buttercup-like herbaceous perennial. Black cohosh grows in shaded woodland areas in central and eastern North America. Native Americans throughout the plant's range have traditionally used the root of black cohosh for its medicinal properties. Dark cohosh root is usually turned into a tea or an extract, named after its black and twisted rhizome.
Details: The flowering perennial Black Cohosh is endemic to much of Canada and the United States. It flourishes in old-growth coastal forests and areas with a high level of biodiversity. The United States and Canada produce and cultivate the majority of the world's black cohosh. The plant reaches a height of three to six feet and has a stem covered in tiny white blooms. The optimal time to harvest the root is between late July and September.
Native Americans used it as a traditional herbal treatment. The name cohosh comes from the Algonquian tribe and means "rough," which refers to the rhizome's texture. Because the blossoms have such a strong odor and have been used to effectively repel insects, it was given the moniker "bugbane." Black snakeroot and rheumatic weed are two more frequent names for this plant.
