Where to Buy Thunder God Vine

People frequently ask where to buy Thunder God Vine. Different options are available to you.

Simple extracts VS medicinal extracts

In the US it’s possible to find Thunder God Vine sold as a supplement because it’s a natural product. These US supplements are root or 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 in the form of ground root. It was used externally only because of said toxicity,
  • Simple extracts from the root (water and ethanol extracts) have a high toxicity too, and are meant to be used externally.
  • Only in the 1970s Chinese research develops medicinal normalized extracts in the form of tablets to be taken by mouth that have the 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.

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. So if you intend to directly buy from China on the Internet be very careful.

Medicinal Thunder God Vine : 10mg tablets

To buy medicinal Thunder God Vine, your best shot is to go to China or to have someone bring it back for you. Specialists in China are qualified to prescribe it to you if your condition requires it. Get a prescription and buy your medicinal Thunder God Vine from a trusted drugstore or from a hospital.

Simple extracts : powder and capsules of powder

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 10 to 50 USD per kilo. These are simple extracts of Thunder God Vine, namely water and ethanol (alcohol) extracts.

And sometimes it’s just ground root or worse. Like at the bottom of the picture on the left: the seller says whole herb. Well the whole herb is deadly.


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

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 suggest it’s possible to take it by mouth. Capsules also are powder extract from above Alibaba website. While it may have a positive effect on autoimmunity symptoms, this type of extracts were never medicine to be taken orally due to kidney and liver toxicity.
