About the company

- C+ rating by the Better Business Bureau with positive customer reviews.
- CBD American Shaman is one of the top-sold global CBD companies.
- CBD American Shaman was founded in 2015 and had some of the first retail CBD stores, which helped introduce CBD products to our nation.
- CBD American Shaman claims their hemp oil tincture has 150 mg of CBD (based on their serving size info). However, our lab tests only found 100.695 mg of CBD.
- CBD American Shaman provides tests results on their website, but our purchase came without a batch number or anything to identify the specific product. The lab results on the page we purchased from were for a different product.
- CBD American Shaman claims “our proprietary nanotechnology makes our products 9x more bioavailable than anything else on the market, making our products faster and more efficiently absorbed by the body.” This is a bold claim that we couldn’t find any research on.
- Their THC-free product has the exact same label as their CBD with THC. While the THC-free bottle is slightly more green in color and had a slashed “0” on the bottom, it may be challenging to know what product you purchased.
- CBD American Shaman has store owners that make medical claims about their CBD, according to this Forbes article. The FDA strictly prohibits any CBD product from suggesting or promoting medical claims. Violations could have negative impacts on the entire industry.
- A CBS 58 investigation found that one of CBD American Shamans’ products, 30 mg Brownies, contained almost no CBD (less than quantifiable or fewer than 0.03 mg).

Other sizes available
CBD American Shaman also offers this hemp oil tincture in potencies of 300 mg ($59.99), 450 mg ($89.99), and 750 mg ($144.99).
