does the 2018 09 01 in the following image mean the expiry date or the expiration date? Also if you can translate the other texts. Much better. If not it's ok. Thanks.
유통 기한 (and also 유통기한) means the sell-by date, which is usually close to the expiration date, although these two dates could differ significantly for some products. I have no idea how chemistry affects the ginseng. Koreans write the date in the YMD format, so it may not be safe to eat that now. Is it powder or liquid? Then, it is likely to have already gone bad.

유통기한 is sometimes translated expiry date. Strictly speaking though, it is the distribution date - the "sell before" date. Businesses are not permitted to sell anything past this date. Depending on the actual product, it may be safe to eat quite a while after this date.
Sometimes you will see 제조일 on things like milk - this is the day on which it was produced. You also might see 소비기한, the actual expiry date, which is after the distribution date.
