According to geologists and researchers, the number of plant species in Iran is about 8,000 species, which is at least twice as high as the European continent. Research has shown that more than 2300 species of plants in the country have medicinal properties, perfumes, spices and cosmetic-sanitary. In addition, 1,728 species of these plants are native to Iran, cultivated exclusively in Iran and considered as a monopoly capacity in the country. The global trade volume of herbs has increased from $ 60 billion in 1996 to $ 140 billion in 2016 and according to the World Bank's forecast in 2050, and global trade will increase to $ 5000 billion for herbs and herbal medicines.

Due to the increasing volume of world trade in herbs and its products, the rich history of Iran in traditional medicine, and also in the comprehensive scientific map of the country, medicinal plants have priority in the field of basic sciences and applied sciences and traditional medicine in the field of health. Also, given that in the comprehensive scientific map of the country, medicinal plants are in the first priority in the field of basic and applied sciences and traditional medicine in the second priority area of health; Also, given that in the comprehensive scientific map of the country, medicinal plants are in the first priority in the field of basic and applied sciences, and traditional medicine in the second priority area of health.
