Reports come from Japan that the Ginko Tree is the only tree to have survived the atom bomb in World War 2. In several cultures of Herbalism, it is famed as a restorativ for influencing the mind, brain & blood. Magically, it is said to enhance one's ability to cultivate & wield power due to its ability to increase the mental focus needed for the mystic arts. Due to the age of the tree itself, it carries the lore in folk traditions of aiding in longevity.

In more modern times, American Ginseng is commonly used as a powerful adaptogen and used to treat cerebral deficiency, chronic depression, memory loss, and insomnia.
