Frequently Asked Questions
What is CBD?
CBD is an acronym for cannabidiol. Historically, the medicinal knowledge of CBD was sourced from marijuana; however, CBD’s and their medicinal benefits can also be found in hemp. Hemp-derived CBD also directly benefits the brain and immune system providing a natural anti-anxiety, anti-epileptic and antipsychotic outcome. Cannabis research has identified CBD as the component responsible for an overwhelming amount of marijuana’s medicinal benefits.
What is Hemp Oil?
This is proper terminology that identifies the source of the CBD oil – hemp. While sharing the Cannabis genus (a sub-family classification), hemp and marijuana are two very distinct plant species with shared and varying cannabidiol compounds and benefits. Our hemp products naturally contain less than .3% THC, and is 100% legal in all 50 states. **An automotive parallel can further portray the relationship between genus and species. The genus would be Ford(cannabis). Examples of species would be a car or truck (hemp or marijuana).
What is a Terpene?
A terpene is a plant profile comprised of isomeric hydrocarbons. Simply, it’s mother nature’s plant signature that is individually experienced by either smell, taste, or its natural toxicology to the human body.
Can I pass a urine test?
Put simply, a consumer who uses high-quality, scientifically vetted hemp-based products at the standard serving size is highly unlikely to test positive for THC and/or THC-COOH. However, it’s important to be cognizant that extremely high doses may result in a positive urine screen (that would subsequently be shown to be false via GC/MS). Ultimately, we recommend consumers need to be fully informed of their life’s guiding specific regulations and adjust their consumption of cannabinoid products accordingly.
How does CBD affect the human body?
The human body is comprised of many systems. Working with the endocrine system is the endocannabinoid system. Numerous effects of the endocannabinoid system in the human body continue to be researched and identified. However, research has found that CBD directly benefits the brain and immune system and is responsible for numerous physiological and mental processes that occur naturally within the body.
This life-sustaining system is most benefitted by plant-derived cannabidiol rather than any synthetic compound. Since all mammals, fish, birds, and reptiles have an endocannabinoid system, CBD’s can help them too!
How is your product different from other CBD's, and why should I buy yours?
American Indican’s due diligence began while searching for a CBD product that we ourselves and our families could trust – a product that is legal, transparent, plant-derived, medicinal-grade, THC/solvent/metals/pesticide free, non-GMO, provides active mgs of CBD, and preferably, sourced from the United States. Unfortunately, our local search only yielded first-to-market inferior products and products from synthetic isolate (not plant-derived CBD). After finding no such offering, we began to search for a premium CBD that matched our personal criteria. Our research led us to Colorado where we solidified our supply chain with a farm that is registered with the state of Colorado and maintains full compliance of the guidelines set forth by the 2014 U.S. Farm Bill, Section 7606 to grow, cultivate, harvest, and produce our market-leading, full-spectrum, medicinal-grade CBD-rich hemp oil – the foundation of our CBD-rich product line.
Is one brand/product more effective than another?
The benefits of nutraceutical and dietary supplemental product effectiveness can vary according to an individual personal toxicology; however, the extraction methods implemented for each ingredient of a solution are the gatekeepers to potential effectiveness, purity, and strength. Knowing your favorite CBD product’s extraction method is imperative to making the healthiest choices.
Our CBD’s are extracted using the pinnacle of CO2 extraction methods. This proprietary method ensures that our CBD’s are extracted not only maintaining the highest levels of medicinal CBD, but also maintaining the additional medicinal benefits of a full plant profile. Inferior methods such as butane (BHO), solvent (alcohol), & low level CO2 extraction methods produce a less pure/potent CBD quality.
What can I expect to experience when taking CBD?
If one has experienced the effects of marijuana, a somewhat similar experience can be expected. The same feelings of calmness, relaxed demeanor, diminished thought-noise (brain-break), and muscle relaxation that are experienced when using marijuana can also be a result of using CBD’s, except without the psychoactive outcome from THC. Some tangible results of CBD use are decreased muscle spasticity and inflammation, less anxiety, and increased sleep quality.
