What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, known to those who are familiar with it as CBD; is a cannabinoid found in all types and kinds of cannabis. A cannabinoid is defined as any of a group of closely related compounds that include cannabinol (CBN) and the active constituents of cannabis. Thus far, 113 different cannabinoids have been isolated. Some of these are familiar such as Cannabidiol (CBD), and Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) the psychoactive component of cannabis that provides the stigmatic "high", as well as some that arent as familiar, like Cannabigerol (CBG) and Cannabichromene (CBC)
Cannabidiol or CBD is known to most as one of the most beneficial cannbinoids. Favored for its reported, studied, and proven positive impact on the nervous system, which is responsible for inflammation response and nerve conduction.
Where does Shaman's Reach CBD come from?
As mentioned lightly in "What is CBD?" we mentioned that Cannabidiol (CBD) comes from the cannabis plant. Industrial Hemp is grown primarily for industrial uses. Uses such as textile (rope, fabric, constrution materials etc.). This special brand, if you will, of cannabis is considered to be industrial if it contains LESS than 0.3% THC total in the plant. This works out great! The good news is that Industrial Hemp contains CBD in just the same amount as many strains of medical grade/non-industrial cannabis, just without the THC. The CBD we use in our products is sourced in Kentucky, in the great United States of America!
The finished products are prepared and made in Brookland, AR where they are then made available to all of you!
Is CBD safe?
First things first, we aren't doctors or pharmacists. We cannot give you medical advice, nor should the following be considered as such.
You'll be hard pressed to find any scholarly journal or study that labels CBD as unsafe. Thats not to say that with EXTREME usage or unimaginable amounts that CBD wouldn't have ANY undesireable effects. That being said, to date we have yet to see any negative or adverse effects of CBD. It should be noted that monitoring your health while using CBD is a good idea. Studies have shown CBD may help regulate things like blood sugar and blood pressure. So consulting with your doctor while taking CBD would be beneficial, as is being in good communication with your doctor is always recommended. Your doctor may over time want to reduce certain medications.
Some studies reveal and discuss the efficacy of anti-biotics while taking CBD. The study finds that the body processes CBD in some forms via hepatic (liver) function. When taking anti-biotics, CBD and the anti-biotics in some cases tend to "wrestle" if you will, for who gets to use the liver first. Which could slightly delay the metabolism of either the anti-biotics or of the CBD.
Please consult your doctor for any health related concerns before taking this product. Also talk to your pharmacist about potential drug interactions before taking this product. Our local pharmacy sells our product, which says a lot! But nothing can replace the experience and training of a qualified medical professional.
What about CBD and Drug Testing?
When it comes to Cannabidiol (CBD) and drug testing; we meet an uncertainty; sort of. There are several methods of testing for illicit drugs. (Sadly, cannabis is still on that list, federally.) Urinalysis, Blood Panels, GC-MS, and the list continues. To date we have had absolutely no one fail a drug screen having taken ONLY our CBD products. We had one false positive reported which was dismissed after presenting our product to the testing agency/employer/doctor. Heres the possible way of having a "positive" test result. In general, when testing for cannabis, most tests look for the presence of THC (the psychoactive cannabinoid responsible for getting people "high"). In these tests, a person who hasnt used marijuana and has only used our CBD products, would pass said test with flying colors. The positive result would come from more rare tests that test for more cannabinoids than THC. If these tests show CBD is present, they could conclude that a person has used cannabis. A majority of tests are looking specifically for THC.
We think the best course of action would be to tell your employer, testing personell, person for which you are being tested that, while they will find zero THC, if CBD is shown it is because you are taking a CBD product, which contains 0.000% THC and is completely legal in all 50 states, and provides ZERO psychoactive effects.
Having said that, we cannot determine what kind of test any will be given, so we can not and do not take responcibility for any positive result for cannabis, in the unlikely case that happened.
Can CBD Benefit Me?
Again, we must make it absolutely CLEAR that we are not doctors, pharmacists, or medical professionals. We believe in natural medicine, specifically the natural medicinal effects of the compounds found within cannabis. In this particular case specifically, Cannabidiol (CBD).
A quick Google search with the search terms "What are the benefits of CBD?" or related question will net you a HOST of pertenent information about what and how CBD can assist in the treatment of literally HUNDREDS of things that are currently ailing man-kind.
Each person's body and current state of health is vividly different and no general statement can be made as to exactly what CBD will do for any one person at any given time, nor how much one would need to take in order to acheive specific desired results. Consider cannabinoids like you would consider vitamins and minerals in the body. Person A may be SEVERLY low in Iron, but have healthy calcium levels. While Person B may have perfect Iron levels and severly depleted calcium. The same rings true for CBD. Some people's system may be in more or less dis-array that the next person.

Tincture? Honey? Capsules? Which one?!?!
Yes. We have several means of getting your Cannabidiol (CBD) from the premium sublingual tincture, to CBD infused chocolates, and honey! Here is what we generally tell those visiting our shop. For the most part it is preference and/or convenience. Yet there are factors to take into consideration. Say I have been playing tennis and i find my elbow is achey afterwards, I would chose the salve as, I feel fine other wise and local, direct application would best benefit me. While if I had worked out and my entire body was achey as is to be expected, I would benefit more from the tincture, rather than covering myself in salve.
The taste of the tincture, while not disgusting, is very bland. For some with a very sensitive pallate, the capsules may be a better idea if they cannot stomach the taste of the tincture, or if you're traveling, you may not want to chance carrying liquid.
The honey, is just that. Honey, comdined with pure CBD. while it contains one of the most commonly found medicinal compounds known to the history of man (honey). It doesnt contain the special blend of herbs and spices that work with CBD that you would find in the capsules or the tincture.
Deciding which way is best for you to take CBD is ultimately up to you and there is no wrong decision as far as which to go with is concerned. Feel free to contact us and we will do our best to help you decide.
