Why Our Cascara Sagrada?
We work with experienced cultivators who have harvested cascara sagrada by hand for generations. Wild–crafted and sustainably sourced in the Pacific northwest, our cascara is harvested each year from mid-May to August from trees between 10-20 years old. After harvest, the fresh cascara bark is ground into 3–4-inch sections and then kiln-dried to age before being ground again. Cascara trees flourish along coastal regions between British Columbia and northern California. In fact, cascara trees naturally fill in logged off areas after timber companies cut down forests. The timber companies often replant with conifers, but Mother Nature does her own replanting with cascara to reestablish a more natural biodiversity as the forest regrows.
