Buy Thunder God Vine

Buy Thunder God Vine medicinal extract

To buy medicinal Thunder God Vine, your best shot is to go to China or to have someone bring it back for you. Buy it from a trusted drugstore or from a hospital. Do not buy in too great quantity so as to avoid issues at custom on going out of China and custom arriving home. Carry the proof of your condition with you. I usually buy around 40 boxes of 100 which is what I need for a year or so.

if you intend to directly buy from China on the Internet be very careful. China offers no safety rules for online market and is very famous for counterfeit medicine. A Chinese citizen would never consider buying his drugs online.

If you can’t go to China, expect to pay around 60USD for a bottle of 100 tablets. It’s cheaper there, but you need to go or have someone go for you.

Presentations are always the same: bottles of 50 or 100 tablets. The dosage is specific, always at 1 to 1,5 mg/kg/day and the tablets always of 10mg. In China medicinal TGV is not considered a supplement and the safety notice advises to take under guidance of a physician.

The name on the boxes is “Lei Gong Teng Pian” or “Lei Gong Teng Duogan Pian” which translates to “Thunder God Vine Glycoside preparation”.

There exists about 10 different commercial presentations. I have tried 5 different brands myself, you can read my review on these different brands at the bottom of this page: mTGV Personal Experience

Where to buy Thunder God Vine powder

On Amazon it’s possible to buy capsules and powder of Thunder God Vine sold as supplement mostly in the US.

Beware because they are not medicinal extracts. Sellers buy them from Alibaba website (see image on the left). These are simple extracts of Thunder God Vine, namely water and ethanol (alcohol) extracts. And sometimes it’s just ground root. At the bottom of the picture on the left: the seller says whole herb. Well the whole herb is very dangerous!


The powder form extracted from the root can probably be useful and safe for external use (poultice).

In China it is mostly used as an insecticide in horticulture and other non edible cultures.

I wouldn’t know which one to recommend or how to use it. In China Thunder God Vine poultice of various brands are available from drugstores.


The capsule form on Amazon suggest it’s possible to take it by mouth. Capsules are also powder water based extracts from above Alibaba website. While these types of extracts have a positive effect on autoimmunity symptoms, they are not medicine for internal use due to toxicity on the kidney and liver.

Simple extracts VS medicinal extracts

In the US it’s possible to find Thunder God Vine powder sold as a supplement because it’s a “natural product”. There are probably a few people who have tried them with no casualties so far, and the government has not banned the import of them yet. These US supplements are water/ethanol extract powder. To stay safe, you need to remember a couple of important things :

  • Thunder God Vine is a dangerous (even deadly) botanical. It is known since antiquity in China to relieve inflammation. It was used in the form of ground root externally only because of said toxicity,
  • Simple extracts from the root (water and ethanol extracts) have a toxicity on kidney and liver, and are meant to be used externally.
  • Only in the 1970s Chinese research develops medicinal extracts in the form of tablets to be taken by mouth that have the anti inflammatory benefits and are safe to take,
  • It’s this type of extracts that are a first intention, and which physicians prescribe widely over the past 30 years.
