Frequently Asked Questions
What is CBD Oil?
CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is a naturally-occurring substance found in the cannabis plant. CBD is just one of the cannabinoids present in cannabis, and it is known for its relief and wellness properties. It is extracted from the hemp plant and diluted with a carrier oil to meet the desired dose. CBD oil can be made into a tincture which is taken under the tongue, a topical serum which is used on the skin, or a water soluble that dissolves in water or any other drink. CBD oil can also be used for skincare and other additional body and skin health purposes.
What is CBD Oil good for?
CBD oil may provide relief from mild discomfort, promote relaxation, help manage everyday stress, and provide relief from occasional sleeplessness. It also may provide positive mental support, help improve mood, help maintain cardiovascular function, and help promote joint flexibility. CBD American Shaman lab tests all products for purity and potency standards. So, if you want to know for sure if CBD will work for you, try one of our all-natural, high-potency hemp oil products.
How do I use Water Soluble CBD Oil?
CBD American Shaman was the first to create a water soluble CBD oil product. This fast-acting delivery system is up to 10x more bioavailable than oil, meaning it enters your bloodstream 10x quicker in order to see results 10x faster. Water soluble CBD oil can be added to any drink. Here at CBD American Shaman, we use proprietary nanotechnology to break down cannabinoids to the molecular level, making them easier to absorb into the body. This makes our CBD hemp oil more potent, absorbable, and effective!
How do I use CBD Oil Topical Serum?
Our CBD oil topical serum can be applied to the skin of the target area and will penetrate tissue to enter the bloodstream. We recommend applying a dropper of serum to the area and leaving it on for 15 minutes. Within that time it will penetrate your skin and muscle tissue and enter your bloodstream. Results may vary, but many people use CBD topical serum for relief from mild discomfort.
How do I use a CBD Oil Tincture?
Our all-natural hemp oil tinctures are a dietary supplement that should be taken orally, usually under the tongue. All of our CBD oil products are made with non-GMO hemp, grown in the USA, powered by our proprietary nanotechnology, and lab tested. You will not find a more pure and potent product than CBD American Shaman products.
Does CBD oil get you high?
CBD oil will not get you high. THC is the cannabinoid that is known for its “high” or psychoactive effect. Marijuana contains high levels of THC, which is why it gets people “high,” but our full spectrum CBD products contain less than 0.3% THC content in compliance with the legal limit and produce absolutely no psychoactive effects. We also offer a lab tested and guaranteed THC-free version of some of our products.
What are the side effects of CBD?
CBD is considered generally safe and is well tolerated by most people. However, just like any substance, it may cause adverse reactions in some people if they have a cannabis allergy or sensitivity. There are no serious side effects of CBD for someone without an allergy. The most common side effect is an upset stomach and gastrointestinal discomfort due to ingesting too much oil. This side effect isn’t specific to CBD oil, but can happen when someone ingests any type of oil.
How does CBD oil make you feel?
CBD oil does not have the psychoactive effects commonly associated with cannabis, because it doesn’t contain the cannabinoid THC. CBD oil will simply make you feel relaxed and comfortable, if you feel anything at all. People with everyday discomforts may notice that they feel more comfortable when taking CBD. But for people who don’t have daily discomforts or stresses might not feel a noticeable difference. The key to CBD oil is whether or not you feel the effects of CBD, they are there. CBD, or cannabidiol, interacts with the cannabinoid receptors throughout the body, helping the endocannabinoid system to regulate processes such as hunger, stress, sleep, body temperature, inflammation, and more.
Is CBD oil safe?
CBD oil is completely safe for the large majority of people. The FDA allows CBD oil to be sold in every state, since it has been found to be a very safe plant oil. CBD oil usually causes no side effects, and no adverse long-term effects have been found. It is rare, but possible, to be allergic to cannabis compounds which can cause an adverse reaction to cannabinoids such as CBD. If you experience allergy symptoms after using CBD, stop use and talk to your doctor.
Does CBD oil work?
Yes, CBD oil works by interacting with the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The exact effects of CBD vary from person to person, since the endocannabinoid system regulates many systems in the body and each person’s ECS will have different needs. For some people, CBD oil works for relief of discomfort, maintaining joint and cartilage function, positive mental support, improving mood, and more. The wide range of uses of CBD is due to the wide range of processes that the ECS regulates within the body.
What is the endocannabinoid system?
The human body creates its own compounds that are extremely chemically similar to the compounds found in the cannabis or hemp plant. The chemicals created by the human body are called endocannabinoids, while the chemicals created by the hemp plant are called cannabinoids. Endocannabinoids are captured by the body’s endocannabinoid receptors which make up the endocannabinoid system, or ECS. The ECS regulates many critical processes in the body such as sleep, hunger, stress, inflammation, body temperature, the immune system, the cardiovascular and circulatory systems, cartilage and joint function, mental support, mood, and more.
How is THC Free CBD Oil made?
Hemp oil extracted from the plant contains trace amounts of THC. So, to make THC free CBD products, hemp oil is broken down into parts including CBD isolate. CBD isolate is pure cannabidiol without all the other cannabinoids such as THC. This isolate is used to make CBD oil with no THC. It is still all-natural, high quality CBD, just all on its own without other cannabinoids and terpenes.
What are the benefits of THC Free CBD Oil?
Our THC free CBD oil products may help provide relief from mild pain or discomfort, promote relaxation, reduce stress, and even provide relief from occasional sleeplessness. They may also provide positive mental support, help improve mood, help maintain cardiovascular function, and help promote joint flexibility. Results may vary, but CBD American Shaman lab tests all of our products to make sure they meet our strict purity and potency standards. If you want to know if CBD will work for you, give one of our all-natural, high-potency hemp oil products a try.
How can THC Free CBD Oil be used?
Our CBD oil without THC is available in many forms. These include tinctures, topical serums, creams, water solubles, edibles, and more. Tinctures are oral dietary supplements that are usually taken under the tongue. Topical serums and creams are used on the skin and penetrate tissue to enter the bloodstream. Water solubles can be dissolved in water or any other drink, and edibles can be eaten. Water solubles are the fastest way to absorb CBD. CBD American Shaman uses proprietary nanotechnology, making our CBD oils 10x more bioavailable than other hemp oils by breaking down CBD into smaller molecules for easier absorption.
What is a CBD Topical?
CBD topicals are any lotion, cream, serum, salve, or skincare product infused with hemp-derived CBD. Hemp CBD topical products are often used to help with localized discomfort and health support. Since CBD supports joint and cartilage function, many people use CBD topically on their hands or other joints to provide that area with support and relief from discomfort.
How is CBD Cream used?
CBD cream is great for targeting a specific area of the body with the benefits of CBD. Just a drop or two of our ultra-concentrated CBD Topical Cream will spread generously onto the target area.

How does edible CBD work?
Edible CBD products, such as CBD gummies, work by entering the bloodstream through the digestive system. This is the slowest way to get CBD to the bloodstream, but it is still highly effective and only takes 30 minutes to 1 hour. Once it is absorbed into the bloodstream, the CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system which helps regulate the body’s state of homeostasis. This is how the effects of CBD occur.
Are CBD gummies as effective as other CBD products?
Since CBD gummies are edible products, they are one of the slower ways to absorb CBD into the bloodstream. However, that doesn’t make them less effective, it just makes the time to effectiveness a little bit longer. If you’d like a more immediate absorption, water soluble CBD products are the fastest way to absorb CBD, alongside smoking CBD joints.
How long do the effects of CBD gummies last?
The effects of CBD can last anywhere from 2 to 6 hours. It depends on how much CBD you consumed, and how your individual body handles CBD. This is why we provide general guidelines for how much CBD to try consuming each day, but encourage our customers to start small and adjust according to their experience. Some people may find that just a tiny serving of CBD per day meets their needs, while others may enjoy using multiple CBD products multiple times per day. The effects of CBD are not mind-altering or intoxicating, so no matter how short or long the effects last, it won’t affect your daily life negatively.
Which CBD gummies product is right for me?
Our standard CBD gummies contain 10mg per gummy and come in bottles of assorted fruit flavors. These are good for people who want to take smaller servings of 10mg at a time. Our gourmet CBD gummies come in bags of each of our gourmet flavors. If you want all your gummies to taste the same, these are a great choice for you. Gourmet gummies also contain 25mg of CBD per gummy, so they are good for people who want a little bit more CBD each time.
What are CBD capsules?
CBD capsules are capsule pills filled with hemp oil and cannabidiol (CBD oil). They are a quick and tasteless way to get your daily serving of CBD. Our capsules are great for anyone who wants to use CBD, but doesn’t like the taste or experience of consuming CBD oil tinctures, water solubles, or edibles. Simply take your daily CBD capsule with water and expect it to take effect within thirty minutes to an hour.
How do I use CBD capsules?
CBD capsules are easy to use. Simply swallow your daily CBD capsule with water, just like any other pill. They can be consumed daily or as needed. We recommend starting with one capsule at a time and working your way up to two capsule servings if needed.
What are some of the health benefits of CBD pills?
CBD capsules may help improve mood, provide positive mental support, and help with occasional difficulty sleeping. CBD may also help maintain immune system health, support a healthy heart, and help remove impurities from the body. CBD pills also promote relaxation. CBD American Shaman lab tests all of our products to make sure they meet strict purity and potency standards. So if you want to know if CBD will work for you, give one of our high-quality hemp oil products a try.
How much CBD is in each CBD capsule?
Each of our Concentrated Hemp Oil Capsules contains 15mg of CBD. Our bottle of 30 capsules contains a total of 450mg, and our bottle of 60 capsules contains a total of 900mg. Capsules are an easy way to take specific amounts of CBD.
What serving size of CBD capsules should I take?
Our CBD capsules each contain 15mg of CBD. We recommend taking one capsule in the morning and one capsule in the evening for a total of 2 pills daily. You can also take our CBD capsules as needed rather than daily if you want to save them for occasions when you need extra relaxation or relief from discomfort
Do CBD capsules contain THC?
THC is the cannabinoid that is known for its “high” or psychotropic effects. Our full spectrum CBD products contain less than 0.3% THC content in compliance with the legal limit and produce absolutely no psychoactive effects. Hemp oil contains many cannabinoids and terpenes other than just CBD and THC, and our products contain the full spectrum.
How do I choose a quality CBD capsules product?
Choosing a quality product is important when purchasing CBD products. Look for a CBD brand that has all of their product batches lab tested internally and by a third party lab. Another sign of a high-quality CBD brand is a company that belongs to CBD and hemp committees, coalitions, and other accredited organizations. Some CBD companies make false claims about their products or sell products that do not contain the amount of CBD stated on the packaging. Always do your research on CBD brands before purchasing.
What's the difference between CBD capsules and CBD oil?
CBD oil products are packaged in a bottle with a dropper to measure each serving size. CBD capsules also contain CBD oil, but rather than using a dropper to measure the oil and consume it in oil form, CBD capsules are already measured and encapsulated for easy use. There is no measuring required, and CBD capsules are tasteless compared to CBD oil tinctures or water solubles.
