Kaesong specialty ginseng is produced in Kaesong, North Korea, a special city in the southern part of North Korea, which was the capital plus prosperous trade center for Korean ginseng during the Taebong and Goryeo dynasties. Close to the South Korean border, Kaesong has continued its legacy of being a premier ginseng cultivator and processor.  

Kaesong ginseng has strong anti-inflammatory properties due to its ginsenosides and can help with many bodily ailments. 天, meaning sky, references where this particular ginseng part was harvested from. 天 indicates the part of the root that is closer to the sky, the section closer to surface of the earth that it grows in. 地, meaning earth indicates that the sections are deeper in the ground.
