CBD stands for Cannabidiol, which is a compound extracted from the hemp plant. It is one of more than 80 unique compounds found in hemp, known as cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are known to support health and to promote homeostasis in the body.
Cannabinoids are compounds that bind to cannabinoid receptors (CB1 & CB2), including endocannabinoids, phytocannabinoids, and synthetic cannabinoids.
“Phyto” means plant. Phytocannabinoids are cannabinoids that are naturally occurring in plants like hemp. Hemp plants contain particularly large amounts of many cannabinoids, including CBD (cannabidiol).
No. CBD is not intoxicating and will not get you high.
Marijuana contains tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) that has psychoactive properties that can get one “high.”
CBD does not contain any psychoactive properties.
While both hemp and marijuana both come from the same family of plants, Cannabis, the plant must have less than 0.3% THC to be hemp. The cannabinoids in CannaFOCUS are derived from hemp. Hemp has been cultivated by humans for thousands of years and is grown in many parts of the world with multiple uses. It is also an earth-friendly plant that is highly sustainable and renewable.
Full spectrum hemp oil extract contains many naturally occurring phyto-cannabinoids, not just CBD, as well as many other types of natural molecules and phytochemical compounds including terpenes. CBD oil only contains CBD.
CannaFOCUS is a phytocannabinoid-rich hemp oil extract that contains Cannabidiol (CBD) as well as other cannabinoids including Cannabichromene (CBC), Cannabigerol (CBG), Cannabinol (CBN), Cannabidivarin (CBDV), as well as various naturally occurring terpenes.
Hemp oil extract containing CBD is legal.
There is a lot of confusion out there among products labeled containing hemp oil, hemp oil extracts, CBD oil, full spectrum oil, etc.
A lot of companies have profited from this confusion by not clearly stating what is contained in the products. Hemp oil can be made cheaply by pressing the oil from the stalks. But the stalks do not contain the cannibinoids or terpenes with medicinal properties. Unless the label specifically identifies the amount of cannabinoids, the customer doesn’t really know what they are getting.
Not only do we clearly list what is contained in each CannaFOCUS product, we list our Certificates of Analysis and Testing Results of each product on our website so that you know exactly what you are getting.
Yes. CannaFOCUS contains naturally occurring phyto-cannabinoids derived from hemp plants.
WHO Expert Committee on Drug Dependence recommended in August 2018 that “CBD has been found to be generally well tolerated with a good safety profile.”
The 2018 Farm Bill was singed into law on December 20, 2018 and removes hemp from the definition of marijuana under the Controlled Substances Act. And it redefined hemp (including CBD) as ALL parts of the plant having less than 0.3% THC, including “extracts, cannabinoids, and derivatives.” (Section 297 A).
When it comes to CBD, more isn’t necessarily better. Clinicians and patients report that the therapeutic amount of CBD per serving varies for each individual. In fact, the synergistic effect (known as the entourage effect) of full-spectrum CBD can be effective at low doses. Several factors, including frequency and length of use, as well as the body’s metabolism, weight and health status, can play a part in how much CBD is right for an individual. Our recommendation is that you start with a smaller dose (1 dropper) and add more as needed.
No. While gummies are certainly trendy, we wanted to offer the best product that gives the best relief. Every where we looked showed that CBD provided as tinctures are far more bioavailable (and less expensive) than gummies. The digestion of the gummy decreases the bioavailability of the cannabinoids.
Discovered in 1992, the endocannabinoid system (ECS) exists to keep the body in homeostasis by regulating basic body functions such as appetite, memory, mood, pain and sleep. It’s like your body’s “master control.” The ECS utilizes compounds the body produces called endocannabinoids, which fit into receptors in cell membranes throughout the body. CB1 receptors are found mainly in the brain and spinal cord, while CB2 receptors are concentrated in immune cells in the peripheral nervous system.
No. CannaFOCUS is a dietary supplement that can be taken without a prescription.

The affects of CBD through tinctures can be felt shortly after administration. However, finding the correct dosage may take a little trial and error.
We’re not aware of any negative health effects of using CBD derived from hemp extract. That said, some people find they feel relaxed or have a calming effect after taking CBD derived from hemp extract. If this is the case for you, we recommend taking it before you need to be calm or focused. Remember, everyone is different and it’s always a good idea to discuss your concern for any possible side effects with your medical practitioner.
Yes. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for info.
The 2018 Farm bill made the sale of hemp extracts, including those containing CBD, legal in all 50 states. However, some states may place additional restrictions on the sale of CBD derived from hemp extracts. You should check the local laws of your state.
CannaFOCUS is provided through 500mg and 1000mg tinctures.
We do not offer returns.
Terpenes are aromatic plant compounds that can influence our bodies using the aromatic compounds. It’s what makes a lemon smell like a lemon. The terpene called Linalol is what makes Lavender Oil have a relaxing effect.
The “entourage effect” is when the full spectrum hemp oil extract contains all the cannabinoids, terpenes, fatty acids, amino acids and vitamins. The benefit is greater than what you’d receive from each individual component, including isolated CBD oil. The full spectrum provides a synergistic effect where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. There are over 80 ‘identified’ compounds in the cannabis plant. While most of these compounds have their own therapeutic benefits, they combine synergistically* to provide far better results.

Ethanol (alcohol) is the most historically used method for cannabis/hemp extracts. It is a clean extraction method that allows for optimal retention of terpenes and other sensitive compounds. We test all our products for residual solvents to assure that it is sufficiently removed.
It’s unlikely, but it could. Hemp extract does contain a very LOW amount of THC (less than the legal limit of 0.3%), but it’s highly unlikely the trace amount of THC in CannaFOCUS would show up on a typical drug test. Similarly, when a person eats foods that contain poppy seeds, there is a small possibility it could. This probably depends on the amount of hemp extract a person is taking and how long they’ve been taking it. It also depends on exactly what someone is being tested for. This is also true with culinary hemp oil and hemp protein products that could also contain trace amounts of THC.
