Should any legal disputes arise between a distributor and the company, proceedings shall take place in Dallas, Texas, where the matter will be resolved by “mandatory, final, binding, nonappealable arbitration.” However, if the distributor wins, it won’t be a great victory as damages are “limited to the amount of products [he or she] has purchased from the company that are in resalable condition.”
Hemp seeds may very well be the world’s first, and perhaps, best superfood. They provide up to 75 percent more protein than a similar amount of flax or chia seeds and contain all 20 amino acids. They’re filled with healthy fatty acids including omega-3 and omega-6. They’re also high in fiber, iron, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, zinc, vitamin E and magnesium -- basically everything you need for a nutritious meal or snack.
"[Legalization] is paving the way for a massive expansion to both the agricultural industries and a spectrum of industries in America," Beckerman said. "[It opens] ancillary service providers from every industry like banking, insurance, finance, merchant processing and packaging labeling distribution. And we're talking about improving products by blending in the superior properties of hemp."
Certainly, there is no shortage of opportunities to commercialize hemp. But until hemp is treated as an industrial crop that can grow freely, businesses won’t thrive. Many states have already taken steps to legalize and jump-start their local hemp economies, but the industry won’t scale until the federal government passes legislation that protects farmers and entrepreneurs from archaic and nonsensical narcotics regulations. Until then, this is a great time for entrepreneurs to start planting the seeds of their hemp ventures.
Been using CBD oil from HW for 6 months now and I feel ALIVE HAPPY it's un describable how great I feel and even though lots of stressful situations happened lately I was able to control my mood, anxiety, my pain has noticeably diminished (I get a only a few hours per month of pain now and when that happens I use the Relief cream that works wonders!! I noticed my skin has improved and I sleep longer then ever before!
I'm in love with the hemp oil. I've had chronic knee pain for 20 yrs from playing soccer in college and it's GONE! I'm a HUGE fan and will be sharing my testimony to everyone. It's a relief to finally have relief from not aching all the time ! I'm a believer! I have had 5 knee surgeries in my life and need 2 more…( soccer goalie) Hempworx is the ONLY thing that's given me relief from the constant aching pain. I'm a true believer in this product!
On the third bottle, I came across a newspaper article that said CBD was illegal in the state of New Jersey without a valid prescription. I tried to tell the "reps" that and again with their rhetoric that is WAS legal and the newspaper was wrong. I did some research on my own and found out it is truly illegal in New Jersey without a valid prescription. The only way these charlatans get away with it, is that they break federal law and mail this stuff state to state without detection. Although there have been instances of the oil being discovered at the Post Office and confiscated. Also, people who have had this stuff on their person, have been arrested. Again the "reps" Tara and Paul swear up and down it's legal. This is a lie to part you from your money.
Flush with cash and looking for a toehold in the United States, Canadian marijuana companies are making big investments in hemp. Consider: Canopy Growth (NYSE: CGC), an Ontario marijuana producer that snagged an investment for 5 billion Canadian dollars ($3.8 billion) from a New York alcohol company, recently announced it is entering the U.S. hemp market. […]
I’m not saying that HempWorx doesn’t offer quality products. But you should be aware of the cost and the fact that the company has an affiliate program so that you know what you’re getting into. We hope they change their marketing approach in the future. If you are using their products and happy with the program, that is great and we hope you stick with it.
The term ‘cannabis’ is a genus name, meaning that all types of cannabis and hemp are categorized under this name, but not all cannabis plants are the same. CBD derived from Commercial or Industrial Hemp has been grown to be HIGH in levels of CBD and low THC whereas Marijuana is grown to be high in THC and contains much less and lower quality CBD. Our CBD products do not come from plants grown for Marijuana use.
For those unfamiliar with the status of hemp these days, Dolgin supplies the 30-second download: “In the ’70s it got caught up with marijuana in the anti-drug laws. It stayed that way for several decades, until the tobacco industry hit rock bottom and states like Virginia realized they need a new crop for farmers. In 2014 the passage of the U.S. Farm Bill allowed states to conduct hemp pilot programs. You could grow hemp if you were certified and licensed.” Because of the government work Dolgin had done, he was able to work closely with state senators and Governor Andrew Cuomo’s office to pass a series of bills that allowed JD Farms to grow hemp. The industry is currently a $688 million business in the U.S.
The inner fibers of the hemp stalk, called hurds, are known for their low density and high absorbency, which means they can be mixed with plaster or lime to make cheap and efficient building materials. This absorbency also makes it a great bed or surface for animals that minimizes dust, fungal spores and odors. Compared to concrete, hempcrete weighs about 90 percent less, uses significantly fewer petrochemicals, is virtually fireproof and, unlike concrete, allows moisture to pass through, reducing mold and mildew problems. In terms of sustainability, hempcrete sequesters carbon, whereas the cement industry is one of the world’s leading producers of CO2.

The thing about HempWorx is that they really don’t make things easy for the customer. Although the affiliate programme seems like a great idea, it does play into HempWorx’ pyramid business model. You receive a free product by referring a friend, and three of their friends then have to purchase the HempWorx products. For us, not listing pricing on the website is a bit of a red flag.
But these drops are! amazing! I cut my opioid dose in half and on the second day, I took the one painkiller late. Because I didn't really need it. I even took my evening drops late. Because I didn't need them. I am considering going off this opioid completely tomorrow because I feel so good! My mood is amazing ... I've been depressed since the day I was born I think, and have been on antidepressants for 19 years ... I will be going off of those too ... I am going to try very hard to ditch all the pharmas I am on because I do believe in this oil.
In addition to THC, Meyer and consumers also need to worry about whether CBD products have contaminants. That’s because cannabis plants readily absorb heavy metals, pesticides, and other potentially harmful chemicals that may be in the soil or water, says Kyle Boyar, a cannabis scientist at Medicinal Genomics, a company that develops tests that help labs comply with state rules. To protect against that risk, cannabis plants should be tested frequently while they are growing, and finished products should be tested, using validated methods, too, Boyar says.
Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s bill to legalize hemp continues to build momentum, attracting additional co-sponsors from both sides of the aisle after being fast-tracked to the Senate floor. The latest twist: The Republican from Kentucky now plans to attach the language of his legislation to the 2018 Farm Bill, which might improve the measure’s […]
The heat is very much on CBD oil sellers these days as the FDA continues to crack down on companies selling “questionable” (to put it nicely) hemp-based products. In fact, since 2015 – when the FDA first issued warning letters to multiple CBD sellers – the industry has been forced to clean up its act, at least in terms of manufacturing operations and brand transparency.
