Linnea HMRlignan™ is derived from Norway Spruce knots. The Norway spruce (Picea abies), which belongs to the Pinacee family, is a large evergreen coniferous tree growing to a height of 35–55 m (115-180 ft) and having a trunk diameter of 1-1.5 m. This species of spruce is native to Europe and plentiful in Nordic countries such as Finland, where it is used extensively in forestry for timber and paper production, which has led to a strong national industrial and academic interest in the study of wood chemistry.

The source of Linnea raw material is in Europe. In co-operation with forestry institutions and through a specific separation process, the knots can be obtained without any additional impact on the local environment and with full control of raw material quality.
