I am from southeast ohio. around here a lot of seng hunters refer to black cohosh as pointer. I am not sure if what people in your area are calling pointer is the same, but that is what they are refering to around here.

hey coondog, to try to answer your question about how many black cohosh plants it takes to make a pound. It definately would depend upon the size of the plants, but a black cohosh plants root is about 4 to 5 times larger than a seng root of the same age. I would guess it would take 60-80 roots to make a pound. I've only dug a couple of plants out of curiosity, so this is only a guess. Although I dont consider digging them a Worthwhile venture if you do decide dig them be sure to handle the roots with gloves. From what I understand black cohosh roots contain toxins that could harm a person, though I'm not sure in What way they would harm you.

Black cohosh is a tall perennial plant in the buttercup family that grows in eastern and central areas of the United States. Black cohosh was used by Native Americans as a traditional folk remedy for womens' health conditions, such as menstrual cramps and hot flashes, arthritis, muscle pain, sore throat, cough and indigestion. The juice of the plant was used as an insect repellent and was made into a salve and applied to snake bites.

Today, black cohosh is used primarily as a nutritional supplement for hot flashes, mood swings, night sweats, vaginal dryness and other symptoms that can occur during menopause, as well as for menstrual cramps and bloating.
