CBD American Shaman Review

We recommend CBD American Shaman because it uses non-GMO organic hemp, proprietary nanotechnology, CO2 extraction, and it sells a massive variety of CBD products.

The company’s product line includes water-soluble tinctures, CBD pet treats, edibles, CBD sparkling water, bath bombs, and more. Plus, American Shaman offers most of its products in a THC-free version and full-spectrum version, for those wanting to experience the entourage effect.

Finally, the products are available in several different flavors, sizes, potency levels, and price points. Customers with a chronic illness or disability that have financial hardship, can apply for the company’s Compassionate Care Program. Those who qualify get 30% off all products. 

Mission / Charity 5/5

CBD American Shaman’s mission of “bringing wellness to the world through CBD products” is somewhat generic. Yet, the inspiration for starting the company is relatable. 

Founder, Vince Sanders lost a family member to a terminal illness, and became “addicted to helping people.” Selling quality CBD products and offering financial assistance to chronically ill and disabled people, is his way of helping. 

Those who qualify for the company’s Compassionate Care Program receive a 30% discount on any order above $34.99.

Hemp Source 4/5

When we inquired about the organic status of its hemp, American Shaman’s customer service reps said it’s certified organic, but didn’t provide proof — so we can’t give it full points here. 

Product Range 5/5

American Shaman has a thorough product range covering all major forms of CBD products. With nearly 40 products available on its website, American Shaman sells items like water-soluble tinctures, CBD oils, topicals, edibles, capsules, CBD for pets, bath bombs, CBD tea, and more. CBD American Shaman has one of the best selections on the market.

Innovation 5/5

The water-soluble CBD tinctures developed by American Shaman were made with its proprietary nanotechnology. The company also uses CO2 extraction and Ultra Performance Convergence Chromatography to batch test it products in house. 

These business decisions demonstrate American Shaman’s clear drive for innovation.

Safety 4/5

The Company’s website features a blog with educational content, the latest CBD news, studies on CBD for pets, and other helpful resources. When visiting the product pages, you’ll see dosing recommendations and a list of ingredients for most products.

However, the usage and safety information isn’t consistently provided on all product offerings, so we couldn’t award a perfect score.

Customer Service 3/5

A return policy is clearly listed in many places on American Shaman’s website. Yet, customer service takes awhile to respond to questions. Plus, the answers are often incomplete, which could require you to follow up. Many CBD companies provide much better service.

About the Company: CBD American Shaman

Vince Sanders founded CBD American Shaman in 2016 with a team of specialized researchers and doctors. Since then, the company has formulated dozens of CBD products and is well-respected in the industry.

Vince was inspired to start a CBD business after his uncle was diagnosed with stage-4 lung cancer. Doctors gave him 6-months to live. Vince was frustrated by the prognosis and knew there was something that could help. In his search, he discovered CBD and shortly after he started CBD American Shaman. 

The company is “dedicated to bringing wellness to the world through ultra-concentrated, terpene-rich CBD.” Part of this mission starts with its certified organic hemp.

CBD American Shaman batch tests its products in-house using Ultra Performance Convergence Chromatography. It then sends the final products to third-party labs for objective testing. It also uses nanotechnology on select products, which spotlights the company’s focus on innovation.

Most of American Shaman’s CBD products are available in THC-free and full-spectrum versions. The company also offers a money-back guarantee to unsatisfied customers.

Lastly, it offers a 20% discount to new customers and a 30% discount to customers who qualify for its Compassionate Care Program.

Where Does CBD American Shaman Source Its Hemp?

CBD American Shaman sources its hemp from Colorado and Kentucky farms. Its hemp is non-GMO and certified organic.

The company posts its third-party lab reports on its website. You can filter by product to quickly locate the corresponding lab report. Almost all the reports are recent, with just a few exceptions.

Most lab reports show the product’s cannabinoid levels, but not the terpene, heavy metal or pesticide levels. The company said it’s in the process of uploading lab reports that contain this information.

What Does CBD American Shaman Do Well?

1. Uses Innovative Nanotechnology

This proprietary technology puts cannabinoids into a greater bio-active state by breaking them down thousands of times at the molecular level. Due to the smaller particle size of the cannabinoids, the body may be able to absorb them more easily— which means faster-acting and longer-lasting effects.

CBD American Shaman refers to its nanotechnology products as ‘water-soluble’. Even though, CBD isn’t technically water-soluble. However, this shouldn’t take away from the effectiveness of the product.

Founder, Vince Sanders said his company uses nanotechnology so customers can save money by purchasing the products less often. Since the water-soluble tinctures are more effective, customers don’t have to take as much compared to an oil-based tincture.

2. Compassionate Care Program

CBD American Shaman implemented a Compassionate Care Program for people with chronic illnesses and disabilities. It believes everyone should have access to CBD oil products, regardless of financial status.

To apply, you can complete an application on CBD American Shaman’s website. The company asks for proof of illness of disability. It reviews all applications and approves those who qualify.

Once accepted into the Compassionate Care Program, members get a 30% discount on all orders over $34.99, pre-tax and shipping costs.

3. Large Selection of Products

American Shaman has dozens of CBD products available on its website. You can find water soluble tinctures, topicals, edibles, pet treats, supplements, pre-rolled joints, and more. The selections are varied and creative, with most options available in a  full-spectrum and THC-free version.  

Where Could CBD American Shaman Improve?

1. Upload Full Panel of Lab Tests

Currently, CBD American Shaman posts ‘cannabinoid tests’ on its website from third-party labs. Out of its dozens of products, we found a few ‘Terpene Analysis’ lab reports posted as well.

According to its customer service team, lab reports for heavy metals, pesticides, and terpene content will be uploaded to the site soon. We look forward to seeing the results so we can give CBD American Shaman full points.

2. Upgrade FAQ Section

CBD American Shaman has a ‘CBD FAQ’ section on its website, but it doesn’t have any product or order-related questions. Since some of the usage and safety information on its products is slim, a more thorough FAQ section would be helpful for prospective and current customers.    

3. Improve Customer Service

Response time and quality of answers could be improved. We submitted a handful of questions to CBD American Shaman using its online form. We never got a response.

Then, we emailed the questions and got a reasonably quick response. Yet, not all of our questions were answered. We decided to try one more technique.

We sent a ‘two-part’ question through Facebook Messenger, and a chatbot responded with automated pre-scripted language. The next day, we got an email from an actual customer rep, but again, our question wasn’t fully answered.

Safety & Third-Party Testing

There isn’t much information listed about safety on the company’s product pages. However, it does include dosage information on most products. The more popular products tend to contain more descriptive language on safety and usage.   

CBD American Shaman provides third-party lab reports on its website for all of its products. Green Scientific Labs does the majority of the testing. Most test results are recent, within the last week or last few months.

We looked over the ‘Cannabinoids Test’ to verify the presence or absence of THC since most of CBD American Shaman’s products are available in both THC-free and full-spectrum.

From the sample of reports we looked at, everything checked out. Also, CBD levels from the lab test matched the amount shown on the product labels.

Although CBD American Shaman posts ‘Cannabinoid Tests,’ it doesn’t post-test results on terpenes, heavy metals, or pesticide levels. For our full support here, we need to see complete third-party test results.

CBD American Shaman’s Shipping & Return Policy

The company ships to all 50 states in the U.S. and to international countries where CBD is legal, except for Canada and Australia. Free shipping is offered on retail orders greater than $100. Wholesale orders greater than $1,000 are also eligible for free shipping. 

This business has a money-back guarantee policy. If you’re unsatisfied with a product that you purchased on American Shaman’s website, you have 45 days to return the item.

If you want to return an item you purchased at a franchisee location, you have 30 days to return the product with your receipt in hand. Finally, for any purchase from an authorized retailer or wholesaler, you will fall under its individual return policy.

Final Verdict: Wide Assortment of Products and a Dash of Innovation

We really like CBD American Shaman because it strives to innovate, uses high-quality hemp, focuses on product variety and offers discounts to those in physical and financial need.

CBD American Shaman drives innovation with its use of nanotechnology. This technology uses sound waves to break down CBD into tiny particles, making it much more bioavailable.

Besides its fast-forward tech, CBD American Shaman also shows creativity by offering several types of CBD products. It offers standard products like tinctures, capsules topicals, and edibles, but also offers tea, sparkling water, bath bombs, gum, and pet treats.

Also, CBD American Shaman sells THC-free and full-spectrum products to cater to different needs and preferences of CBD users. Additionally, these products come in various sizes, concentrations, flavors, and price points.

Overall, we’re extremely fond of CBD American Shaman because of its high-quality CBD products. We recommend buying its highly-rated items like the water-soluble tincture, face cream, or canine CBD tincture.
