One company that’s paying attention to JD Farms is Whole Foods Market Inc. According to one of its senior global grocery buyers, David Lafferty, “shoppers are seeking out hemp products more than ever, thanks to both product innovation and the increased promotion of hemp’s nutritional benefits by food brands.” JD Farms has teamed with Satur Farms—the Long Island-based supplier of gourmet greens and vegetables—on a baby greens mix of kale and hemp that will be available at Whole Foods throughout the Northeast by the end of July. The salad’s sharp leaves are vaguely reminiscent of pot and have a similar sharp, almost minty flavor. Co-owner Paulette Satur describes the flavor as “lemony,” and is optimistic about the project. “We decided it fits in well with kale in terms of texture and its being chockablock with health benefits. And we’re the first to offer baby hemp leaves in the U.S., which is exciting.” Of the slight, physical resemblance hemp shares with pot leaves, Satur jokes, “Maybe this is a good way to get older kids to eat their vegetables.”
There are plenty of promoters for HempWorx around on social media, and the reviews are generally quite positive. However, it’s best to look elsewhere for HempWorx reviews than directly on the website. The second review there comes from Jenna Zwagil, who writes “This CBD Oil is a Life Saver.” However, Ms Zwagil is married to the co-founder of My Daily Choice, a notorious (to say the least) company with whom HempWorx are aligned. This brings the credibility of the other reviews into question.
First off, hemp seed oil is oil extracted from hemp seeds. It contains very little CBD and is not commonly used as a source for CBD since the rest of the plant contains much more CBD. The claim to have a ‘full spectrum CBD’ is very strange wording. CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is a single chemical, a single cannabinoid, so it cannot be ‘full spectrum’ because it contains no other ingredients. This could be merely bad writing, or could indicate attempt to confound either consumers, or more likely sellers. The ingredients listed say hemp seed oil, CBD rich whole hemp extract, and flavoring. There’s no list of just ‘CBD’ alone. However, on the certificate of analysis provided by the organization, the percent of CBD comes out correct. From this we conclude that the ‘phytocannabinoid extract’ is indeed all of the cannabinoids together, but that more than 160% of that is comprised of CBD. Therefore, we can fairly well trust that this product does in fact contain the stated level of CBD, despite the confusing wording.
“As we researched hemp food products, the majority of it was as a base ingredient for shakes and smoothies,” says Dolgin. “We believe the next iteration of the hemp market is to go into snack foods, to give it wider penetration into households,” he says. “We’re looking at products like ice cream and beer. We already have a pretty broad product portfolio, and we want to get even more innovative.”
I also needed to know about the HempWorx management and marketing presentation - were they quality people with a quality message or were they cheesy and sleazy? I was surprised to find out that the Founders of HempWorx are a young couple, Jenna and Josh Zwagil (photo right). The company was born out of Jenn’s and her son’s medical needs after trying a CBD Oil product. After watching many videos and talking to other affiliates, I learned that Jenn and Josh are pretty straightforward, no B.S. people who care about making a difference in people’s health and wealth. The way they present the product is the same - nothing flashy or sleazy - just straight facts about the products and industry with a quality hands on approach.

Research is beginning to show that CBD is different than other well-studied cannabinoids. All cannabinoids act as ligands, meaning they dock onto the binding site of a protein and have the ability to modulate a receptor’s behavior. CB1 receptors are widely distributed, but are particularly abundant in areas of the brain, including those concerned with movement, coordination, pain and sensory perception, emotion, memory, cognition, autonomic and endocrine functions.
