In 2003, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services filed a U.S. patent on CBD (#6630507) that covers CBD treatment for various neurodegenerative and inflammatory disorders. Because of the February 6, 2004, Federal Court Ruling Nos. 03-71366, 03-71693, every US citizen can legally use CBD (extracted from industrial hemp high in CBD without illegal amounts of THC). The American medical community had come to believe (or been “brain washed”) in the years following the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act that cannabis had no use as a medicine. Only now have they come full circle on cannabis, realizing what their predecessors knew 100 years ago. CBD oil is simply the most exciting outcome from this current thinking regarding cannabis. Their belief is that CBD oil is not negative or illegal but that it should be embraced and used for its many benefits. As a result of his investigative reporting, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN, completely changed his stance on medical marijuana, cannabis and hemp. (Prior to his research, he thought people “needed” medical marijuana to justify getting “high”). Dr. Gupta featured CBD miracle stories in his special documentary series called “Weed” that first aired in 2013. The world was astonished by the people he profiled and the positive effects CBD oil has proven to have on human health. Dr. Mehmet Oz, known from “Oprah” and current host of his own TV show and ABC News Chief, Health and Medical Editor, Dr. Richard Besser have also been convinced of the beneficial properties of CBD.
Finally in 1964, Professor Raphael Mechoulam and his colleague, Yechiel Gaoni, at the Weizman Institute of Science in Israel, isolated, analyzed and synthesized the main psychoactive ingredient in the cannabis plant as tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. Professor Mechoulam, now 84, stated in an interview that he has been urging producers over the years to grow cannabis with less THC and more CBD. (Nonmedical marijuana growers have little interest because CBD has NO psychoactive properties.) Taking Professor Mechoulam’s advice, a government approved medical marijuana farm, Tikkun Olam, began working on a high CBD and low to no THC strain of cannabis. After years of careful breeding, they developed, Avidekel, a strain rich in CBD but with little to no THC. This break through has allowed tens of thousands of Israelis to enjoy the health benefits of CBD.
The cannabis plant species can be grown as hemp (which has a weak amount of natural THC — the widely known psychoactive property) or marijuana (which over centuries has been selectively bred for higher and higher THC ). Hemp has been grown for over 5,000 years for its fiber – used for rope, twine, fabric and so on. Since at least 1500 BC, hemp has been widely used as medicine. Many scholars believe that the gall and vinegar, or myrrh wine, offered to Jesus immediately after the crucifixion was, in all probability, a preparation of hemp. Queen Victoria used hemp extracts for menstrual cramps and anxiety. Her reign from 1837-1901 paralleled the explosive growth of hemp based medicines. From 1842 to 1900, cannabis made up half of all medicines sold. From 1850 to 1937, the U.S. Pharmacopeia listed cannabis as the primary medicine to treat more than 100 separate illnesses or diseases.
CBD American Shaman Hemp Oil is the highest quality hemp oil available and has been described as giving a feeling of well-being and alertness. Research CBD Hemp Oil to learn about its many benefits.
CBD American Shaman Hemp Oil contains a very slight trace of THC (produces no effect) – under .3% Legal Limit
CBD American Shaman Hemp Oil is extracted using CO2 – the safest and the most environmentally pure method used to extract hemp oil. We use low heat so that all the health supporting terpenes remain intact.
CBD American Shaman Hemp Oil comes from industrial hemp, and is completely legal to buy in all 50 states of the USA.
We support farms that are growing Non-GMO crops and understand the sustainability of hemp as a crop. Hemp is naturally resistant to most pests. Therefore there is no need for pesticides, herbicides or toxic fertilizer.
Our Ultra Concentrated Hemp Oil is derived from industrial hemp, a type of cannabis plant. Unlike marijuana which is bred for its THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) content — the element which gets you “high” — hemp oil has no psychoactive effect and has many health benefits.
Hemp has a varied and rich history. For example, it’s fiber is made into rope, twine and fabric. Historians have found evidence of hemp oil used as medicine dates as far back as 1500 BC in India, China and the Middle East. Fast forward to the United Kingdom in the late 1800s… did you know that Queen Victoria was prescribed cannabis for menstrual pain? From 1850 to 1937, the U.S. Pharmacopoeia listed cannabis as the primary medicine to treat more than 100 separate illnesses or diseases.
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!
