FAQ

Are your products Marijuana based or Hemp Based? 

Ameri-Canna products are Hemp based.

Are Hemp and Marijuana the same? 

No, but they are both part of the Cannabis family.  Hemp is completely different from marijuana in its function, cultivation and application. While marijuana plants contain high levels of THC, hemp contains very little of the psychoactive chemical. This single difference is what most rely on to distinguish hemp from marijuana. Hemp is used in variety of other applications that marijuana couldn’t possibly be used in. These include healthy dietary supplements, skin products, clothing, and more.

What is CBD?

CBD is one of over 60 compounds found in cannabis that belongs to a class of ingredients called cannabinoids.   CBD is the major nonpsychoactive component of Cannabis sativa. (CBD) is one of the most prevalent chemical compounds in the cannabis plant.  It is one of the safest health supplements on the market. It is non-addictive, has no side effects, and can be used safely over prolonged periods, even in higher doses.

What is the difference between CBD and Hemp Oil?

CBD is a compound found in Hemp Flower.  CBD oil is generally used for medicinal purposes, treating inflammation, pain, sleeping disorders and even certain types of epileptic seizures. Hemp-seed oil is used as a protein supplement for food, because of its remedial properties for hair and skin, and as an ingredient in lotion and soap products.  Hemp seed oil, although rich in omega acids, contains very low levels of CBD.

Where is your hemp seed and CBD oil produced?

All Hemp Seed Oil and CBD used in Ameri-Canna products was GROWN and processed in Colorado.

How often should I use your products?

What makes Ameri-Canna skincare products different?

All of our ingredients are food-grade – held to the same standard as the organic produce grown for human consumption.  Our products are loaded with natural ingredients, enriched with Hemp Seed Oil, and CBD.

What ingredients should I avoid?

Parabens, propylene or butylene glycols, petroleum, sulphates, PEGs, TEA, DEA, phthalates, GMO, silicones, pesticides, artificial dyes or synthetic fragrances. One way to avoid pesticides in beauty products is to buy certified organic products with the USDA seal or the Certified Organic Seal on the front of the box or product.

Why do most companies use chemical ingredients as a base?

Some cosmetic companies are not in the business of health or environment; they are in the business of beauty.  Beauty products in the United States are largely unregulated are many leading researchers that have proven that the dozens of ingredients that are commonly used in both prestige and drugstore personal care products are potentially harmful.

These researchers have proven that many of these ingredients are endocrine and estrogen disrupters. Medicine has also proven that endocrine and estrogen disrupters increase the incidence of certain cancers. I've heard that there is quite a bit of research on the potential effects of all these unnecessary chemicals and additives in beauty products.

Where do you source your ingredients?

We prefer to buy locally, and when that is not possible, Ameri-Cann is committed to supporting small, independent farmers and distillers around the world.  Our natural ingredients are harvested during peak season to provide the most potent benefits.

Where are your products manufactured?

We proudly manufacture all of our products in the USA.

Is your packaging recyclable?

Yes, we pride ourselves in using recyclable and sustainable packaging. 

Are your products safe for pregnant clients?

While every ingredient we use is carefully selected to meet safety and efficacy standards, it is recommended that consumers who are pregnant or nursing consult with their physician for any contraindications. Please note that a complete ingredient list can be found on the product page.

How long do the products stay fresh?

To ensure freshness, it is best to use the products within 6-12 months of receiving them. Products will keep best if kept in a cool dry place and do not need to be refrigerated. Because the products are handmade with natural ingredients and without added chemicals, it's important to keep water and bacteria out of them for extended shelf life. Use a small spatula for your products that don't have a pump or wash your hands thoroughly before use. 

Are you cruelty free? 

Yes, we are 100% cruelty free. We would never condone animal testing and we only use suppliers that are certified cruelty free.
