What is CBD?

CBD is derived from hemp and interacts with our body through the endocannabinoid system, which is the system that regulates the body’s normal homeostasis. As the environment around us affects our body’s normal state of balance, the endocannabinoid system keeps our bodies leveled.

Will CBD make me high?

No, hemp derived CBD won’t make you “high” or experience any psychoactive effects. Hemp derived CBD typically contains no more than 0.3% THC, the chemical that causes the high effect. This amount of THC isn’t enough to cause any intoxicating effects. CBD also counteracts any effects that may occur from the small amount of THC in the CBD product. There are some CBD products that contain no THC for those who are concerned about any level of THC content. 

What are the benefits of CBD?

CBD has the ability to provide many health benefits, although it is important to note that CBD may affect people differently. When CBD enters the body, it works with the body’s endocannabinoid system to support various functions throughout the body. Some of the main benefits of CBD include:


• Relief from minor discomfort
• Promotes a positive mental state
• Improves mood
• Supports joint health
• Improves rest
• Boosts energy
• Supports a healthy cardiovascular system
• Supports immune system health
• Promotes improved overall health

What makes American Shaman different?

CBD American Shaman’s nanotechnology represents the ultimate refinement of hemp oil concentrate. Our unique process gives unmatched particle size, putting cannabinoids in their most bio-active state. This minute size gives the cannabinoids a much greater surface area.

For example, picture a basketball full of BB’s sitting on your kitchen floor. It only covers a small portion of the floor. Now, picture the basketball breaking open and all those BB’s spilling out. They spread out over the entire floor.

This is what our proprietary nano system does — it breaks large lipid balls full of cannabinoids down thousands of times to the molecular level. The smaller the particle size, the easier it is for the cells of your body to absorb it. Every time you cut the particle size in half, you increase its surface area. Think of the exponential surface area when you reduce particle sizes hundreds of times. This process will not only make hemp oil concentrate much more potent, it will make delivery time to the cells a matter of seconds; not hours!

What’s the difference between American Shaman’s proprietary nanotechnology and other nano CBD?

Our proprietary nanotechnology simply breaks down the particle size of the CBD to create water soluble CBD. Nano CBD is a type of CBD isolate which removes the terpenes from the oil during the extraction process, resulting in the opposite of a “full-spectrum” hemp oil. Unlike nano CBD oil, our water soluble CBD products remain full spectrum, containing all the terpenes and cannabinoids that are found naturally in the hemp plant.  

Which is better CBD oil or water soluble CBD?

Oils typically can’t dissolve in water, hence the saying “like oil and water” means two things don’t mix. However, breaking down the particle size using nanotechnology makes CBD oil water soluble. CBD oil and water soluble CBD have different uses. CBD oil can be taken orally in a tincture or an edible product, or it can be used topically on the skin. Water soluble CBD can be dissolved in water and drank. Since water soluble CBD has a much smaller particle size, the body can absorb the cannabinoids into the bloodstream much quicker than regular CBD oil. 

Will I fail a drug test using CBD?

All of our products are 3rd party lab tested to confirm that their THC content is less than 0.3% (trace amounts) and we also carry THC-free products. It is unlikely that someone taking our products would fail a drug test, however we cannot guarantee it as it ultimately depends on the test being used. Some tests specifically check for THC while other tests check for cannabinoids in general. Since CBD is a cannabinoid, this could potentially return a positive test result. If you are subject to routine or random drug testing, we highly recommend that you speak with your drug test administrator regarding CBD and ask what kind of test they use as well as what additional steps they take to verify the results are not due to THC should you receive a positive. Ask the important questions and don’t let the unfair stigmas of hemp keep you from its amazing benefits! 

Does CBD interact with medications?

CBD may interfere with a few medications, either by amplifying their effects or diminishing them. Since this is the case, we recommend those who are taking medication to consult with their doctor or healthcare professional before adding CBD to their daily routine. 

What is the Compassionate Care program?

CBD American Shaman is committed to helping those in need, those who are low-income, and veterans. Our ultra-concentrated terpene rich CBD products offer a natural and safe way to alleviate occasional stress and mild discomfort, help support feelings of calm, and much more. We don’t want money to get in the way of you receiving the relief you need so that is why we offer this financial assistance program. We believe everyone should have access to the health supporting properties of CBD oil products. Click here for more information and to request an application.
