Cannabidiol and cannabidiolic acid work by binding to various receptor targets throughout the central nervous system and the rest of the body.  Acting at these receptor sites, it exerts influence on the metabolism of various neurotransmitter systems.  It seems like ‘snake oil’ that one compound can have all the beneficial effects listed above; however, cannabinoid receptors exist throughout the nervous system and it is known that such a ubiquitous receptor must be involved in nearly everything the nervous system does, just like serotonin and dopamine receptors.  Dopamine affects pleasure, but also pain.  Anxiety and also relaxation.  Heart contraction and blood pressure.  All of these systems are integrated so cannabinoid receptors will indeed have effects on all of these systems and exogenous cannabinoids from plants can definitely have therapeutic effects which are extensive.

With the signing of the 2018 Farm Bill, however, that is all about to change. Hemp legalization was first introduced by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican from industrial hemp-producing Kentucky. The measure, known as Section 7606, ends the Schedule I status of industrial hemp under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), which categorized the plant as a potentially addictive substance with no medical uses alongside drugs like heroin and ecstasy.
Now I had to address how I was going to market these products effectively without selling to family and friends. What I learned is that some of the top producers in the company were using social media and other internet marketing to sell the products and business opportunity. Then I realized there is a wholesale program so I could also sell to retailers such as dispensaries, vape and head shops, natural health food stores, alternative medicine practitioners and the list goes on. I could also share the products through meetup groups, doing events, etc. so there are no shortage of ways to market the HempWorx CBD products.

Look forward to hearing from you!
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.
The Hempworx Affiliate Program took off! The demand for high-quality, scientifically tested, CBD Oil quickly grew, and it became clear the demand is not limited to North America. That is when they decided to merge with My Daily Choice. My Daily Choice is an international network marketing company that already had international operations, so May 15, 2017, Hempworx merged with My Daily Choice
If you’d prefer to add a CBD creamer into your coffee rather than use CBD-infused beans, then these are for you. Containing 5mg of hemp oil extract per creamer stick, you can purchase these CBD Keto Coffee Creamers in Hazelnut, Vanilla or Mocha flavour. As well as containing zero THC, these creamers are also sugar free for more health benefits. Just like the coffee, they are non-GMO, gluten free, and vegan friendly.
Hemp Business Journal has also reviewed sales of clothing, auto parts, building materials and various other products, and estimates the total retail value of hemp products sold in the U.S. in 2017 to be at least $820 million, including hemp foods (17%); personal care products (22%); textiles (13%); supplements (5%); hemp derived cannabidiol or CBD products (23%), consumer textiles (13%); industrial applications (18%); and other products such as paper and building materials accounted for the remaining 2% of the market.
When I first started looking into this business opportunity, I noticed something that was very deceptive right out of the gate. On the business opportunity page, it claimed that you were signing up to be a HempWorx affiliate.  This would make you think that it’s an affiliate marketing business just like many of the others that I’ve talked about in numerous reviews here at Affiliate Resources.
The $600 million-plus hemp industry is poised for massive growth across the U.S. as more states legalize cultivation of the plant, promising to create scores of new business opportunities and jobs in the coming years. The market for hemp-based CBD products in particular is booming, which has helped bring established medical marijuana companies into the fold.
Hemp, a non-intoxicating form of the plant Cannabis sativa (L.), was outlawed in the U.S. in 1937 when Congress passed the Marihuana Tax Act. Although most states have legalized hemp in some form since, the federal prohibition meant interstate commerce involving the plant and its derivative products remained illegal. Jenelle Kim, co-founder and lead formulator of hemp product manufacturer JBK Wellness Labs, said the prohibition overshadowed thousands of years of hemp usage in human culture.

Our 7 year old daughter has ADD. She had not been doing well in school. She was failing reading and her teacher told us there was a chance she could fail the 2nd grade. She wasn‘t failing because she wasn't trying. but because she couldn't focus to comprehend what the story or topic was about. We spent endless hours with her at home doing homework where she would have breakdown after breakdown because she was so frustrated and she thought she was stupid. We were frustrated for her. We got her a tutor twice a week and it helped a little. So that's when a friend of ours told us about Hempworx CBD oil.


Hemp oil is quickly becoming a commonly used ingredient in many cosmetics such as body lotions, soaps and shampoos. Even modest daily usage of hemp oil, whether it is ingested or applied to the skin, has been shown to lead to improvements in skin quality, stronger fingernails and even thicker hair. Hemp oil that is full of cannabidiol (CBD), a cannabinoid with neuroprotectant, antioxidant and other therapeutic qualities, generated $130 million in sales in 2016 and is projected to reach $350 million by 2020.

The human body has an endocannabinoid system — a natural system that maintains homeostasis or balance, in the body. The endocannabinoid system has CB1 and CB2 receptors. These are found throughout the body. CB1 receptors are generally located in the central and peripheral nervous system and CB2 receptors are generally found in the brain, immune system, and gastrointestinal system. CBD binds to these receptors creating changes and effects in the body
My husband and I have been using/selling Hempworx for 3 months with great relief from arthritis pain and depression. However, I am looking elsewhere to be a retailer. The company has grown too fast and the owners cannot keep up. The bottling was terrible and leaking and and shipping expensive and delayed sometimes weeks. They corrected their bottling after I lost 4 bottles to leakage in transit (they replaced ONE). You get NO discount as a dealer on your orders and it is a total pyramid scheme that I detest. Work my ass off for some Liberal to get rich. The owner states opposition to our President and that alone turns my stomach. I am OUT asap.
2. Is Hempworx a pyramid scheme? No. Pyramid schemes involve paying commissions to people to bring in new recruits. The new recruits typically have to pay an upfront fee that enriches those that are higher in the pyramid. In many cases, a product doesn’t even exist. The scheme continues until they can no longer get enough new recruits to fund the operation. Again, Hempworx has a real product that is being sold. They charge a small fee ($20) to become a Hempworx affiliate but the focus is on making real sales. So by all accounts, Hempworx is not a pyramid scheme.
There was another reason hemp appealed to the pair: its potential to be the next runaway hit food product, the next kale. “Mark and I both live pretty healthy, active lifestyles,” remarks Dolgin. “We both knew that hemp was on its way to becoming a superfood, in that category of flax and chia seeds. We saw a sustainable long-term play in that market.” Hemp flour products are high in protein (only soybeans have more), and hemp contains 20 amino acids, including nine that the body doesn’t produce. Among its reputed health benefits: immune-system booster, weight suppressant (because it’s high in fiber), and an ability to lower blood pressure and cholesterol. It’s popular with vegetarians because it’s high in the fatty acids omega-3—found in good-for-you fish like salmon—and omega-6.
Some CBD products also describe themselves as including or coming from “hemp oil.” In some cases, manufacturers use that term to mean CBD oil, which is oil rich in CBD made mainly from the leaves, resin, or flowering tops of hemp plants. But “hemp oil” more often, and more properly, refers to oil made from the seeds of the plant, and contains only very small amounts of CBD, says Lanier at the Hemp Industries Association. That oil is often included in hemp-based soaps, cosmetics, and similar products.

For products made with CBD from hemp, even Colorado doesn’t require testing of the finished product. So any COA for those final products comes from testing the company arranged on its own. Though not all manufacturers take that step, many do, Lanier says. That includes even some companies that use imported hemp, such as CV Sciences, which makes Plus CBD Oil from hemp grown in Holland.


CBD’s meteoric rise in popularity has hemp growers finding all kinds of market opportunities that don’t exist for THC products, including yoga studios, pet boutiques, gyms and coffee shops – all foreign territory for marijuana-derived products. One Kentucky hemp producer even has CBD products being sold in tractor supply stores; a North Carolina CBD company has […]
Reading a little bit more into the “business opportunity”, I quickly realized that it is not an affiliate program. Instead, it’s an MLM company that for some reason or another is trying to make it sound like you’re working as an affiliate marketer instead of building an MLM business. I’m not sure exactly why the company is trying to phrase things like this, it certainly sends up a red flag to me as it should you also.
There are other, unexpected, costs. Green Roads lost four banks when their risk-management teams decided that Green Roads wasn't a business they wanted to be supporting. The company's Instagram account has likewise been shut down four times, because of legal restrictions on marketing CBD products. Instead of paying standard credit card processing fees of less than 3 percent, Green Roads pays closer to 6 percent.
Hemp oil is quickly becoming a commonly used ingredient in many cosmetics such as body lotions, soaps and shampoos. Even modest daily usage of hemp oil, whether it is ingested or applied to the skin, has been shown to lead to improvements in skin quality, stronger fingernails and even thicker hair. Hemp oil that is full of cannabidiol (CBD), a cannabinoid with neuroprotectant, antioxidant and other therapeutic qualities, generated $130 million in sales in 2016 and is projected to reach $350 million by 2020.
For even more assurance about a product’s quality, Boyar recommends checking the COA to see whether it says that the lab meets “ISO 17025” standards. That suggests the lab adheres to high scientific standards. Also look to see whether a company uses testing methods validated by one of three respected national standard-setting organizations: the Association of Official Agricultural Chemists (AOAC), the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia (AHP), or the U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP).    
In June 2018, the U.S. Senate passed its 2018 Farm Bill and in December 2018, President Trump signed the bill into law to make hemp legal for the first time since the 1930s. The bill removes hemp from the Controlled Substances Act, effectively legalizing the plant federally and allowing it to be grown, processed, and sold as an agricultural commodity. Individual states will be authorized to draft their own regulations governing hemp cultivation.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is just one of over 85 cannabinoids that is identified in the cannabis plant. CBD is becoming increasingly popular among the masses for having a wide scope of medicinal benefits – due to clinical reports and lots of test data showing little to no side effects and a lack of psycho-activity (typically associated with marijuana products and high THC).
One state, Indiana, has made it easier for consumers to find these COAs. Since July, all hemp-derived CBD products sold in stores in Indiana must include a QR code on their label that lets consumers download a product’s COA to their phone. All CBD products sold at Indiana locations of Fresh Thyme Farmers Market, a Midwest regional chain, now carry those codes, says Jonathan Lawrence, director of vitamins and body care at the chain. “It’s important for any consumer to know what’s in their product and what they’re taking,” Lawrence says.
In states that have only legalized the medical, not recreational, use of marijuana, testing is less consistent, Boyar says. Several states—including Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, and New York—do require some testing of products, according to the National Cannabis Industry Association. But others don’t, including Arizona and Michigan.

"I have suffered with insomnia, anxiety and chronic back pain for years. With bulging and herniated discs from C3-C6 and T2-T7, I’m like a worm trying to get comfortable in bed for sleep. The pain is related to the insomnia. If I can get comfortable, I might be able to get some sleep. I tried epidural steroid injections in my spine 4 times last year. It still left me with needing more. Then my friend called me with the 750 product saying, 'I know you've been going through the pain, a friend gave this to me to try and it might work for you.'
Hemp, the plant, is traditionally known for its use in textiles and ropes. That’s because of its strength: After about three weeks of growth, a hemp stalk will be so sturdy it’s almost impossible to break, because the fibers are so long and strong. But for culinary products, it’s the seeds that are all-important. After they’re pressed to produce oil, the resulting byproduct can be processed into a flour from which products like pasta can be created. JD Farms has also started cultivating young hemp leaves into salad mixes.
While distributors have proclaimed HempWorx’s cannabis products as “legal in all 50 states,” and Josh Zwagil has said that it’s “100 percent legal” to ship them across state lines (more on this in the next section), the contract advises that distributors nevertheless “consult with an attorney regarding the extent of their personal legal liability with respect to their independent businesses,” noting that “laws differ according to jurisdiction.”
Regarding health claims, the contract states: “Under no circumstances may [a distributor] prescribe any Product as suitable for a particular ailment. No claims may be made as to therapeutic or curative properties of any Product offered by the Company.” As for income claims, the contract says distributors are “prohibited from making false, misleading, or unrepresentative claims regarding earning potential.” It adds that, when an income claim reflects actual earnings, the claim must be accompanied by “the Company’s current Annual Average Income Disclosure, posted on the Company’s website.” But as of the date of publication, it was not posted there.
Testimonial of my 89-year-old Mom ~ I started giving my Mom 5 drops am and pm on the CBD 2 month ago. She had major signs of dementia. She could not remember dates she would ask me minimum 3x a day questions I had already told her she would sleep all day and up all night. Well, she is now as swift as when she was 85 remembers her dates talks about yesterday with recollection. Sleeps Nights and up through the day. My sister was talking to my Mom last week over the phone then asked to talk to me and said Lynda do not ever take Mom off the CBD, my god, she remembers like she use to After I hung up the phone I teared of joy! Also, I noticed my Mothers eyes are crystal clear.I want to thank God for giving us this amazing hemp plant with pure CBD to heal our Bodies I am more than amazed by all these results. I have My mom back and she is no longer in the sadness of this horrible sickness Dementia  –Lynda Bourgeois

So the $20 joining fee is not too bad. But where they make their money is from the Builder Packs that you have to purchase if you want to make commissions. These packs start at around $60 and go up to $600 at the time of this review. For some people start up costs are a deal breaker. Not everyone understands that any business requires an initial investment. But companies like Wealthy Affiliate provide you with a free option to get started with your business. So it may be something to consider.

I love this stuff! Started with 500mg CBD oil then changed to the 750mg. I also have used the relief cream. The oil has worked wonders for my Crohn's disease as far as better sleep, less inflammation, bloodwork improved, less stress feeling and the relief cream has done wonders for my joint aches in my hands and hips. I wish the price was less. Some other posts here claim you have to pay $20 to order, but that is not true. You only pay $20 one time fee if you want to sign up to be an affiliate and sell it.

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.
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.

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.

Fuentes and Barosso soon became business partners and the co-founders of Green Roads. Barroso went door-to-door to smoke shops, leaving bottles of CBD oil on consignment. "In the beginning, no one would give us the time of day," Fuentes says. Then she started hearing that grandmothers were going into vape shops to find CBD. "I was like, we have to do something about this," she says. "Grandmas are not comfortable in vape stores!" 
After joining HempWorx, I tested the products myself and I was pleasantly surprised. I bought the HempWorx CBD oil 500mg and the HempWorx pain rub and each has worked very well for my chronic back pain while also providing a calming effect which I like. Great results, but would these products work for my customers? Here’s an example - my very first customer bought the 750mg CBD oil for her arthritis pain. She had tried other products that had THC in them that did not work for her. After a week or so after she bought the CBD oil, I called her to get feedback on how it was going and she said she really didn’t notice a difference so I suggested that she take the oil topically on her pain areas rather than sublingually. A week later she was ecstatic because she was now getting relief from her arthritis pain and this was the only thing that was helping her. She reordered a few weeks later. So now I knew I could check off that main concern of whether the products were for real.
That pretty much describes the status of an entire industry--the makers of products containing cannabidiol, or CBD. The compound, added to everything from skin cream to ice cream, can be derived from hemp or marijuana and has been touted as a treatment for ailments ranging from anxiety to cancer. The catch: "It's still in a legal gray area," says Bethany Gomez, director of research for Brightfield Group, which studies the cannabis and CBD industries.

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.
