What is Cascara Sagrada?
Rhamnus purshiana (cascara buckthorn, cascara, bearberry, and in the Chinook Jargon, chittem and chitticum; syn. Frangula purshiana, Rhamnus purshianus) is a species of buckthorn native to western North America from southern British Columbia south to central California, and eastward to northwestern Montana.
The dried bark of Rhamnus purshiana has been used continually for many years by both Pacific northwest native peoples and immigrant Euro-Americans. Commercially it is called 'cascara sagrada' ('sacred bark' in Spanish), while traditionally it is known as 'chittem bark.'
