So many things about CBD American Shaman inspire confidence—so we decided to give their products a try.

Purchasing Experience

CBD American Shaman is known for their water-soluble products, but…

Having little success with water-soluble products in the past, we decided to go with what we know works and purchased a 15ml bottle of the CBD American Shaman Terpene Rich Hemp Oil Tincture 450mg in natural flavor.

This particular product isn’t full-spectrum but instead appears to be a broad spectrum blend of cannabidiol isolate and hemp oil.

CBD American Shaman has made a big marketing push, and their coupon codes are everywhere.

A quick Google search brought up several “reviews” with codes for 20% off—which brought our total from $89.99 to $71.99.

 

 

With shipping and taxes, the final cost out-the-door was $83.19.

Overall, the site is fast and secure, and their e-commerce platform worked flawlessly for our purchase.

Taste

Administered under the tongue for 30 seconds, the Terpene Rich Hemp Oil in natural flavor has a light and earthy taste with notes of citrus.

The consistency of the oil is smooth and not watery, slimy or syrupy. The color is light yellow, and the oil itself is free from particulates.

As with any natural-flavored tincture, the flavor is an acquired taste.

Compared to Lazarus Natural’s High Potency CBD Tincture in natural, the CBD American Shaman hemp oil tincture is much less overpowering and not overly skunky.

Ease of Use

This might sound strange, but one of the things we did not like about the CBD American Shaman Hemp Oil is the dropper.

It’s not just nitpicking either.

The dropper has an entirely different shape—it’s missing the ubiquitous graduated tip and we found it difficult to measure out doses drop-by-drop.

 

 

Where this different design shines is being able to draw the full amount (1ml) into the droppers.

While other droppers are easier to dole out CBD by the drop, many seem only to be able to draw 2/3 of a milliliter—which isn’t a big deal unless you’re taking a full 1ml or multi-milliliter dose.

Value

The retail price for 450mg breaks down to $0.20/mg—putting CBD American Shaman on the highest-end of the cost spectrum.

Price/mg comparison
CBD American Shaman Terpene Rich Hemp Oil 300mg $0.20
Joy Organics CBD Oil Tincture 250mg $0.14
Endoca RAW Hemp Oil Drops 300mg $0.10
Lazarus Naturals CBD Tincture 225mg $0.05

However, if you’re buying CBD American Shaman you shouldn’t ever pay the retail price as coupon codes are EVERYWHERE.

Unfortunately, even with a 20% discount, CBD American Shaman comes in at $0.16/mg and is still the most expensive brand we’ve tried.

Transparency

What we loved about CBD American Shaman in the first place seems to no longer be true—as they are no longer publishing complete lab tests for all of their products.

Previously, CBD American Shaman ran the full gamut of tests to ensure that their products not only have the claimed potency but are free from:

  1. Heavy metals
  2. Residual solvents
  3. Microbiologic agents like Salmonella
  4. Pesticides

Unfortunately, their latest round of lab tests only include results for potency.

Summary

The mild earthy taste also might not be for everyone but is much less overpowering than similar products and the strange dropper is really only a problem if you dose by the drop.

Bottom-line: There are less expensive providers of CBD oil out there that also provide greater levels of transparency.
