Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, the 2018 Farm Bill made all hemp products federally legal, including full-spectrum hemp extract oils.
In order to meet the federally legal requirement to qualify as hemp in the US, there can be no more than a maximum of 0.3% THC in a hemp product. This level is low enough that there is no psychoactive effect from the hemp oil. Our product is a hemp product.
What we’ve learned from our customers and research is that everyone is different when it comes to full spectrum hemp extract. While most people report feeling very calm, relaxed or even tired, others may feel their mood elevated and body energized. For this reason, we suggest starting with a smaller serving and increase the dosage until you find the effect that is right for you.
The ECS is a natural system in our brain and body. It is a system that is present in all animals and fish and evolutionarily dates back 600 million years. The ECS’s job is to modulate other systems in the body that can become out of balance. It is like a braking system, that can slow down a wide variety of systems in the body, including pain perception, gastrointestinal motility, memory, sleep, response to stress, pain, and appetite, to name a few. The ECS has unique functions throughout the body, but especially in the brain and the immune system. In fact, ECS receptors are the most common receptors in the brain and the second most common receptors in the body, showing exactly how important is the ECS.
Entourage effect: Whole plant hemp oil is made up of some combination of CBD, THC and other cannabinoids, as well as a wide array of terpenes, and flavonoids. Research in the 1980s with pure synthetic THC analogs, without any other cannabinoids or terpenes, had shown that THC works better and in a much more natural way, with far fewer side effects when CBD and the full plant profile is present. The presence of CBD, other cannabinoids and terpenes actually make for a more effective result for the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). This synergistic and modifying effect is what is known as the ‘entourage effect’.
So far science has discovered that full spectrum hemp extract can contain over 140 different phytonutrients. Besides terpenoids and cannabinoids, hemp extract contains many other vitamins, minerals, plant sterols, pigments, proteins, enzymes, essential sugars, polyphenol antioxidants, flavonoids and essential fatty acids. However, because of the completely natural extraction method, most of these nutrients don’t exist in large enough concentrations to have a salient effect on their own. Combined they contribute to what is called the Entourage Effect.
Unfortunately, the FDA prohibits us from discussing any diseases or medical conditions in conjunction with our products. We recommend you take advantage of our 30 Day Risk-Free Trial and try CannaTrust products for one month and observe the results for yourself.
CannaTrust starts with agricultural hemp grown at our partner's organic farm, their farming methods use no pesticides, heavy metals or chemicals. We then use a CO2 Supercritical extraction process that yields a pure, phytonutrient-rich oil that's high in cannabinoids, omega 3-6-9, flavonoids, antioxidants beneficial lipids and terpenes. Our extract is then blended with cold pressed organic hemp seed oil for nutritional benefits that makes CannaTrust an everyday supplement suitable for an active lifestyle.

Our general guidelines for serving size are always printed on the packaging. We suggest if you are new to this type of product to start slow and increase your dosage until you find the desired effect. Many times if your body is out of balance a little can go a long way.

Due to the nontoxic nature of hemp products, it is very difficult to overdo the dosage however If over time, there is an excess of stimulation of these receptors, then the number of receptors on the cell membrane will tend to decrease, this is called down- regulation. Therefore, it will take more of the product to get the same effect. If there is not enough stimulation of these receptors, over time, the number of receptors will tend to increase, this is called up-regulation. This will result in stronger effect from lower doses. In order to learn how to dose the product effectively, it is important to understand the importance of finding just the right dose that does not result in up or down-regulation of the receptors on the cell membranes for you.

No, CannaTrust Full Spectrum Hemp Extract Oil is not made for vaping.
There is a difference between hemp seed oil and full spectrum hemp extract. Hemp seed oil can be great for you, containing lots of healthy fats and amino acids, but it will not contain more than a trace amount of cannabinoids and will not interact with your endocannabinoid system. Full spectrum hemp extract has to be extracted from the plant – not simply pressed from the seeds.
NO – all of our products are from made from all natural sources using CO2 extraction, lab tested for quality, metals, and solvents.

All of our full spectrum hemp products are considered food or supplements.
There are different ways that companies test for drugs. Most work-place drug screens and tests target delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and do not detect the presence of cannabinoids or other legal natural hemp-based constituents.
However, studies have shown that eating hemp foods and oils can cause confirmed positive results when screening urine and blood specimens on a full cannabinoid profile. Accordingly, if you are subject to any form of drug testing or screening, we recommend (as does the United States Armed Services) that you DO-NOT ingest these products.
All of our products are lab tested multiple times before and after the manufacturing process for potency and purity. When taking our products, you know you are getting a safe and more effective product.
