Ciwuja

Ciwuja is generally regarded as a Chinese name for the herb Eleutherococcus senticosus (so-called Russian ginseng). However, it is unclear whether herbal products manufactured in China and offered as ciwuja are in fact identical to eleutherococcus or rather belong to a related plant. In this database, we tentatively regard the herbs as identical.
