Hello again! 

Thank you for trusting American Shaman with your CBD journey. We’re so excited to help you find comfort, happiness, and relaxation! Since we covered a lot during your visit, we wrote it all down in this reference guide so you can access it anytime.

We’re always here to answer any questions. Just give us a call or shoot us an email.

Here’s a recap of what we talked about during your visit...

You purchased a Full-Spectrum CBD Topicals, which are helpful for a variety of ailments, such as muscle or joint pain, existing arthritic conditions, and migraines. Once home, store your CBD out of direct sunlight. If you’re taking other medication, chat with your doctor about adding CBD.



It can be confusing, so here’s a quick breakdown. CBD Topicals are absorbed through the skin for localized pain relief in different areas of the body. Our topicals are full-spectrum, which means we use the entire hemp plant rather than just the aerial CBD parts. After applying, this allows the CBD molecules to bind to your CB1 and CB2 receptors more easily.


Our CBD is made with proprietary nanotechnology, meaning the CBD molecules are broken down into their smallest parts! The CBD will absorb 90-100% into your system much faster than regular hemp oil, making it the most effective and bioavailable delivery to the bloodstream.


All of our topical CBD cream and serum products are made with non-GMO hemp, grown in the USA, powered by our proprietary nanotechnology, and lab-tested to ensure purity and potency standards. 



  • Apply a pea-size amount 3-4 times daily, but feel free to vary your applications to your needs.
  • Each application should start working in 60-90 minutes and last up to six hours, but everyone metabolizes it differently!
  • For chronic ailments such as joint pain or anxiety, CBD works best when used daily.
  • If you forget a day, don’t worry and begin again tomorrow.



We know it can be hard to add something new to your routine, especially if you’re busy. So to help make your CBD wellness a daily habit, here are a few recommendations:

  • Keep the bottle with your regular lotions and self-care products! You’re more likely to take your new topicals if they’re in plain sight.
  • Commit to using Topicals the same time each day. It’s easier to create a habit with a plan.
  • Have a spare bottle with you at all times so you can use it before or during the onset of discomfort. 



Good question! Anyone new to CBD should be assessing how they feel. In the first month, you may notice any of the following:

  • Joint relief and flexibility
  • Healthy inflammatory response associated with movement
  • Relief in localized soreness

We recommend jotting down some notes to record your progress. If you’re not noticing improvements, you may need more frequent dosage or additional products, and we’d be happy to help you.

If you see or feel anything abnormal, stop using it immediately. This is rare, but everyone reacts to herbs differently! 



You bet! Once part of your daily routine, CBD is shown to provide continued benefits such as:

  • Healthier joint function
  • Less overall pain and inflammation
  • Holistic treatment for existing conditions
