Until recently, Hempworx had a page of “testimonials” on their corporate website. It’s since been removed. Likely because the FDA doesn’t look kindly on fake testimonials. Most people assume that testimonials are from satisfied customers who have no affiliation with Hempworx. But this was not the case. The “testimonials” on their website were all from high-ranking affiliates who sell Hempworx. So in reality, these are hardly impartial reviews.
TINA.org reached out to the Zwagils, the company’s founders, for comment.

In addition, McGinnis said HempWorx has suspended several distributors and terminated one in response to TINA.org’s findings.
Pain is one of our body’s ways of letting us know that something is wrong. Women in particular often experience pelvic pain, or pain below the belly button and above the legs. This can be caused by a number of things, from cysts to digestive problems. Some women experience pelvic pain after giving birth. Others have a more serious medical condition that is causing the pain, such as endometriosis, which has no cure despite popular assumption.

5. Is it true that Hempworx CBD oil doesn’t contain fillers? No. This is a favorite claim of Hempworx sellers. They often try to steer people away from other brands that they save have “fillers.” The truth is that Hempworx has a carrier oil just like other CBD oil tinctures. Hempworx happens to use hemp seed oil as its carrier oil. Other brands use a variety of carrier oils, most commonly either hemp seed oil, coconut oil or MCT oil. The claim that using hemp seed oil as the carrier oil makes the product more “pure” is bogus.
Bast is the outer fiber of the hemp stalk, and just about anything can be made from it -- clothing, rope, rugs or plastic. It also blends well with cotton, silk, rayon, linen, wool and other fibers, which makes it both versatile and recyclable. Henry Ford once constructed a hemp plastic car that ran on hemp fuel. It was lighter than steel, but 10 times as resistant to breaking. Hemp fibers can also be used to make paper that is stronger than most of today’s paper while using a method that is more environmentally friendly than the traditional chemical-intensive process of taking wood and turning it into pulp.
