Tussock is a potent herbal tincture for resolving inflammation, promoting healthy gut bacteria, and lowering stress and anxiety. Unlike most dietary supplements, Tussock is actually made in a laboratory. This allows it to be standardized and has a molecular weight, which ensures a uniform dosage.Tussock grasses or bunch grasses are a group of grass species in the family Poaceae. They usually grow as singular plants in clumps, tufts, hummocks, or bunches, rather than forming a sod or lawn, in meadows, grasslands, and prairies. As perennial plants, most species live more than one season. Tussock grasses are often found as forage in pastures and ornamental grasses in gardens.Tussock and bunch grasses occur in almost any habitat where other grasses are found, including: grasslands, savannas and prairies, wetlands and estuaries, riparian zones, shrublands and scrublands, woodlands and forests, montane and alpine zones, tundra and dunes, and deserts.

^ R.H. Groves, R.D.B. Whalley "Grass and Grassland Ecology in Australia" in Flora of Australia Volume 43 Poaceae 1: Introduction and Atlas, CSIRO Publishing, Canberra. "Tussock" grass implies a vertical orientation of the grass clump. In North American usage "Bunch grass" is more specific and defines a clumping, non-rhizomatous or non-stoloniferous growth form, vertical to splayed, and usually perennial with a deeper rooting system than other Poacea.Crampton, Beecher.

It's most common to use this noun, in fact, for grass that sprouts taller than the surrounding growth. When tussock was originally used, in the 1540s, it meant "a tuft of hair." Its origin is uncertain.

Narrow-leaved snow tussock (C. rigida) is found in the south-western South Island, but is more widespread east of the main divide, along with slim snow tussock (C. macra). These two are the most common tussocks on the pastoral grazing lands of the South Island high country. C. rigida occurs mostly below 1,250 metres, south of the Rakaia River. C. macra grows at higher altitudes where C. rigida is present, but is more widespread in the north of the South Island.After Māori burnt areas of forest and woodland in the drier eastern 'rain shadow' region of the South Island, narrow-leaved and slim snow tussocks extended their ranges below the treeline on the drier eastern side of the mountains. Later, these grasslands were much reduced by pastoral farming (grazing and burning) from the 1850s.There was no need, however, for him to move, for the twain came swiftly towards them until they were within a spear's length, when the man with the cross sat himself down sullenly upon a tussock of grass by the wayside, while the other stood beside him with his great cudgel still hanging over his head.
