Frequently asked questions

What is CBD Oil?


Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is a product that's derived from cannabis. It's a type of cannabinoid, which are the chemicals naturally found in marijuana plants. Even though it comes from marijuana plants, CBD doesn't create an intoxicating effect — that's caused by another cannabinoid, known as THC.




What is full-spectrum CBD oil?


Full-spectrum CBD oil is the least refined and processed CBD on the market with the most nutrients possible. After the CBD is first extracted from the hemp plant, it isn’t further refined to remove the nutrients from the plant, this includes terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids. These other cannabinoids include THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the cannabinoid commonly known for its intoxicating effects. Legally all hemp-derived CBD can’t contain any more than 0.3 percent THC. This small amount of THC won’t cause any intoxicating effects. Full-spectrum CBD oil can improve the effectiveness of the CBD since all the nutrients naturally found in the plant are left in the product.




What is Proprietary Nanotechnology?


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 our 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 liquids. 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.
