Why nama?

Our team works tirelessly to ensure we uphold the strictest measures of both quality ingredients and delicious flavor in every nama hemp product. Our products are rigorously tested by third-party labs to ensure the highest quality and transparency.

What do we test for?

Each of our products is sent to a lab for a full panel lab test. This full panel report includes testing for potency, microbials, heavy metals, pesticides and mycotoxins. This testing ensures our products are as clean as can be. Like we said, we're an open book.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of many organic compounds derived from the hemp plant. Although it is also present in what is generically referred to as the cannabis plant, it is typically derived from hemp. nama's hemp extract (including CBD) is strictly derived from American grown hemp. Each of nama's products are rigorously tested to ensure you know exactly what is in each product. Just visit our lab reports here to learn more!

What does it feel like?

Each person is different, so everybody will have a different response when consuming hemp. Hemp extract works with the human body's vast network of receptors, the endocannabinoid system, which plays a key role in keeping everything in your body balanced and running smoothly. This response is personalized based on what you have going on internally. So the best way to find out is to give it a try!

How much should I take?

It's simple, low and slow. Every individual is different, and responds differently to CBD. We recommend consulting with your health care provider if you have questions about how much CBD you should consume based on your unique needs. Most people start with one serving and evaluate from there.

What are the benefits?*

Dr. Yasmin Hurd (Director @ Mount Sinai)
“[CBD] doesn’t make you high, but it has effects on multiple other chemicals in the body and in the brain. So, for example, in the brain, it can elevate chemicals that are important for regulating anxiety and mood."

The World Health Organization (WHO)
"CBD is generally well tolerated with a good safety profile."
 
Adam Friedman (Professor @ GWU)
“Cannabinoids, like CBD, are heavily involved in managing the immune response to infection and injury.”
 
Donald Levy (MD / Professor @ Harvard)

“… the most benefit I have seen as a physician is in treating sleep disorders, anxiety, and pain. Many people report a definite response when it comes to anxiety.”

Dr. Joshua Zeichner (Director @ Mount Sinai)
“Studies have shown that CBD may actually decrease oil production and be useful in people who are acne-prone.”

What is Broad Spectrum CBD?

When hemp extract is initially separated, it is made up of numerous cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes. The extract then goes through a cooling and purification process which removes any trace amounts of THC, leaving us with all of the benefits of the hemp plant, but no THC to worry about. Broad Spectrum as opposed to Isolate, maintains the richness of the plant while preserving the terpenes and flavonoids. Several of our products contain Broad Spectrum hemp extract, which allows you to experience the greatness of CBD with non-detectable amounts of THC.

As always, if you every have any questions please reach out. We love this plant, so speaking about hemp is a nice little vacation from our work.
