As you comb through the web pages, it’s clear the product is meant for a multi-level marketing scheme. Many of these companies do not expect anyone to actually use the product. They just want people who will buy it in hopes of selling it to someone else. One previous potential customer has said he could not buy the product, as the company demanded a referral. This means multi-level marketing might be their main business. This can lead to problems getting the product for regular consumers, though they do have an option to sell directly to the consumer as well on the website.

Experts expect the market for CBD to balloon if and when the farm bill passes, which could happen this month. That means the biggest challenge for Green Roads is yet to come. "I'm not worried about the companies that are in the market today, I'm worried about big companies," Barroso says. "We can't compete with those guys. I think about it every day."
Some research suggests that in some people, CBD may work better when it’s combined with at least a little THC, says Martin Lee, director of Project CBD, an advocacy group that supports CBD research and the author of "Smoke Signals: A Social History of Marijuana—Medical, Recreational, and Scientific" (Scribner, 2012). This is called the “entourage effect,” Lee says, the idea that the sum of the two chemicals, plus other related compounds in the plant, is greater than their individual parts.
As a dorky kid, I spent many a Saturday at the Bloomington, Ind., public library, scouring Consumer Reports back issues for great deals. Now, as a (much) bigger kid, that's still my job! Identifying products and services, especially in healthcare, that are safe, effective, and affordable—and highlighting those that aren't—is my top concern. Got a tip?

Not true. A family member of mine also failed a drug test using Hempworx that was supposedly zero THC. They contacted their rep who refused to respond to calls or texts. So then they went straight to the company who said they were sorry but nothing they could do because supposedly their lab is different than the one that did the drug test??? What a scam.
First off they charge to be an affiliate, there are enough CBD companies out there that don’t. They lie to you when you’re not paid on time making it seem like your fault, tell you to wait until next payday and then don’t pay you again, they actually e pert you to wait yet another week to get paid for three weeks earlier. They treat you like you’re an idiot and then lie to your face and laugh. They get pleasure from abusing the affiliates, make money off the backs of the struggeling all the while pressuring to buy more, more, MORE! Why throw good money after bad? You shouldn’t have to but that is exactly what they tell you you have to do in order to get paid. Think about this, you’re expected to go into online groups with a bunch of other people selling the same products, how is that helping you make money? It’s not. What these groups are designed to do is indoctrinate you into thinking the way they want you to think. You are the donkey and ‘helping you be successful’ is how they dangle the carrot. Does anyone really believe Josh and Jenna (her maiden name is Kahan, pun intended) make $10,000 a day? There’s videos on the internet where she claims just that. You would think with a daily income like that, they’d own the house they live in but they don’t, it’s a rental for $3,000 per month. For individuals claiming to make $10,000 a day why are they renting a home for 1/3 of Jenna’s daily income? Surely they can afford something more luxurious. The truth be told, it’s all smoke and mirrors and eventually the dominos will start to fall. I predict trouble ahead. Josh and Jenna are the modern day version of a snake oil peddler.
HempWorx blew us away with the comprehensive nature of their Certificates of Analysis, and excellent sourcing standards, and commitment to education. We were disappointed by their full-steam-ahead focus on the financial incentives for selling (not consuming) CBD. Exhortations like “Cash in on the emerging $7.1 Billion Cannabis industry!” and “…we have a VIRAL product that requires zero selling!” were disappointing to read. This emphasis on their affiliate program (as opposed to a discussion of charitable endeavors) is a little different from other brands. However, HempWorx now makes product pricing and details available right on the site.
Also, all HempWorx products are 100% organic and non-genetically modified, and the company apparently makes all of its products right here in the United States. Moreover, the hemp used to extract the oil is grown in Kentucky, and unlike a lot of firms who claim their CBD products to be lab tested, HempWorx actually ‘walks the walk’ by publishing up-to-date details of their test results on the site (you can find them under the “HempWorx Store” tab by clicking the “CBD Oil Certification” button).
