Nuherbs Lab Tested Ban Lan Gen is cut into small pieces. The pieces can be used to make an extract, or a decoction. If making an extract from the Ban Lan Gen be sure to use an alcohol which is at least 18% by Volume. Though I have read that some extract require 100% by volume*.*Information from Wikipedia.org states that Alcohol by volume (abbreviated as ABV, abv, or alc/vol) is a standard measure of how much alcohol (ethanol) is contained in a given volume of an alcoholic beverage (expressed as a volume percent).
