Lingzhi was highly ranked as an herbal medicine in Shen Nong Material Medica (Shen Nung Ben Cao Jing) which was published in the second century B.C. In it, 365 kinds of Chinese medicines were classified and explained.
The medicines were basically classified into 3 categories: 120 of them were declared to be "superior" medicines, another 120 were classified as "average" medicines, and the remaining 125 were placed in the "fair" category.
The "superior" medicines were also known "God's Herbs" and they were for perpetual youth and longevity--the medicines of the legendary wizards.
In ancient times, only the royal family was allowed access to superior medicine.
