Who we are:

The Herb Research Foundation (HRF) is a nonprofit research and educational organization focusing on herbs and medicinal plants. Our resources include:

What we do:


We publish the 86 page color journal, HerbalGram for our members, in coordination with with our sister organization the American Botanical Council in Austin, Texas. HerbalGram is the best herb magazine anywhere, critically acclaimed, interesting and beautiful. Through HerbalGram and our newsletter, Herb Research News, we keep our members up to date with the latest facts on herbs in science, legislation, and business. 

Herbs for Health

We also offer our members the beautiful and highly readable, Herbs for Health. Herbs for Health has the largest circulation of any herb magazine and offers a practical and diverse view into the use of herbs.  Along with our newsletter, Herb Research News, Herbs for Health helps our members keep up to date with the latest herb news.

Herb Research News

Herb Research News is our quarterly newsletter exclusively for Herb Research Foundation members. Much of the news you see in our news section online, plus much more, is available first to our members through Herb Research News.
