Glycyrrhiza uralensis or Gan Cao is used to harmonize other herbs and reduce harsh effects of other herbs. It can remove drugs. 蒙汗药 direct translate is “stop sweat drug”, can make people unconscious and sleep. Gan Cao is the remedy. Gan Cao can increase blood pressure, put dried black beans to reduce blood pressure. I cook this soup when I work in NTU.
