HempWorx uses only industrial, GMO-free Kentucky hemp grown using organic methods under the 2014 Farm Bill and the Government Pilot Program for Hemp Research. The result is high potency and consistency in each compound processed via solvent-free CO2 extraction. They offer powerful, full spectrum oils as well as THC-free tinctures (Note that all HempWorx’s full spectrum oils fall at or below the federal allotment for THC levels). Each oil is available in two concentrations in cinnamon, peppermint, and natural flavors. No artificial colors or flavors are present in any of their offerings. The innovative topicals include high-end skincare varieties rich in healing properties. The powerful anti-aging cream treats wrinkles with 50 mg CBD, while their Revive cream includes other anti-agers like collagen and retinol. HempWorx’s pet line features dog treats that are soy-free, grain-free, and corn-free plus oil tinctures for pain/anxiety relief. One of their most popular products is the hemp-infused coffee, a delicious way to enjoy CBD benefits. And the best part is the CBD Keto Coffee Creamer that goes along with it! This savory addition is gluten-free, Keto, vegan, and sugar-free: a great way to add CBD to a daily health regimen in a tasty way.
TINA.org reached out to the Zwagils, the company’s founders, for comment. Erin McGinnis, HempWorx’s director of compliance, responded with a statement indicating the company is in the process of reviewing every item in the above article and every entry in the health and income claims databases TINA.org compiled. As of 9/6/18, HempWorx had removed 83 of more than 100 health claims and 35 of more than 50 income claims. In addition, McGinnis said HempWorx has suspended several distributors and terminated one in response to TINA.org’s findings.
Hempworx products are made from Hemp, the non-THC cousin of marijuana. The reason I have always purchased my CBD oil from Hempworx is that they are the only manufacturer I know of that uses certified, organic, non GMO, hemp, grown by FDA compliant hemp farmers in Colorado and Kentucky. That’s a big deal. There are not many FDA compliant farms growing hemp. Hempworx products are also grown as part of the Hemp Pilot Program that helps farmers that have converted to growing cannabis.
As a result, customers can now be confident that most companies out there are pretty legitimate in terms of the overall safety of their products. However, you should still keep your eyes peeled and do as much research as possible, as a lot of brands are still selling non-therapeutic hemp seed oils as “CBD oils,” when in fact they contain very little of the active compound at all.
