Devil’s club is a tall-growing, shrubby plant in the ivy family that thrives in the moist, old growth conifer forests of the Pacific Northwest, although stands also naturally occur in the Great Lakes region and portions of Idaho.

The herb was well known to several Native American tribes, especially the Blackfoot, Tsimshian, Alutiiq and Tlingit, who used the plant externally and internally to address inflammatory conditions, among other things.

Devil’s club was and is still used in shamanism for purification and personal protection. Hanging a piece of club root over the front door of the home is said to protect the occupants within from misfortune.

Because devil’s club is related to American ginseng, it is sometimes referred to as an adaptogenic and even marketed as Alaskan ginseng. However, the plants differ in chemical composition and pharmacology.
