By "a few drops a day" what do you mean? It says to "start at" 5 drops and work up to 15, if needed. I hate to talk negative about a product that I have yet to try so don't take it that way. However, 5-15 drops is a huge range and then 2X a day.....that bottle will empty pretty fast. Again, what is "a few drops a day" and how often are you taking a few drops? Thanks for your reply
Look for products that show how much CBD (or cannabidiol, its full name) you get not just in the whole bottle but in each dose, says Lee, from Project CBD. Dosages, which are expressed in milligrams, or mgs, vary considerably depending on the form of the product, and experts often suggest starting with products that have relatively low doses. For example, with tinctures, consider a product that has just 10 mg per dose, says Mitch Earleywine, Ph.D., a professor of psychology at the University at Albany, State University of New York.

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.
This is hemp oil which contains a full range of phytocannabinoids, including nearly 160 percent CBD content. This became a point of confusion when we first examined the label but we have concluded the product likely does have the professed CBD content. CBD and phytocannabinoid is used interchangeably because most of the phytocannabinoid is CBD with the other cannabinoids not comprising half a milligram for every 10 mg of CBD.
Hempworx boasts in this YouTube video that they pay huge commissions (up to 85% of revenue) to their affiliates. That means that up to 85% of the price that people pay is being paid in commissions to the selling affiliate and their “upline” network of other Hempworx affiliates. The video also promises the potential for affiliates to earn iPads, flatscreen TVs, luxury vacations, cruises, diamond watches, $100,000 cash bonuses and even new cars.
So the CBD arrived. Josh and I took it for a couple of days Just to make sure we didn't feel funny or get sick and both of us had never felt better in our lives. So we gave it to our daughter, 5 drops of the peppermint ﬂavor under her tongue in the morning. It has been a month now and she is passing. 20% graded papers have turned into 105% graded papers. She loves to read and tell me all about the story. Her focus and attention have returned. She is not crying when it‘s time to do homework!
I recommend the following guide. Start out slow with 5 drops twice a day for the first week. Hold the drops under your tongue for 90 seconds, use a mirror so you can SEE how many drops you are using. By week 2 or 3, go up to 10 drops twice a day. By week 4, you can go up to 20 drops twice a day. Everyone is different, and results may vary so we recommend that you explore what works best for you. We also suggest you consult your doctor or physician for dosage recommendations.
Hempworx’s products have cannabidiol as the main active ingredient. Cannabidiol is known to have many mechanisms of action. We list the receptors in the central nervous system which cannabidiol binds to below. These include cannabinoid receptors, serotonin receptors, and orphan receptors which are related to cannabinoid receptors by their structure. CBD also modulates opioid receptors by which it affects pain perception. These are not the only receptors cannabidiol may bind to or affect.
What about the upfront costs - were they prohibitive in order to become a HempWorx affiliate? The fee to join the HempWorx affiliate program is $20 plus the purchase of your first product (as little as $69 plus S&H). With that purchase you get your own website where people can order from you and also become an affiliate, marketing materials, your own customer service team, free drop shipping to your customers and ongoing support from a success coach. You also get the product(s) you ordered which you can use for yourself and family or re-sell. So for under $100 you can become a HempWorx affiliate which seems very reasonable to me all things considered.
But why is hemp illegal in the first place? After all, America was built on hemp, an industrial crop which contains tiny amounts of THC, the chemical compound in cannabis that produces psychoactive effects. Several Founding Fathers grew hemp. Cultivation of hemp was mandated by law in the Massachusetts, Virginia and Connecticut colonies. Beginning in 1631, hemp was legal tender for paying taxes in many of the American colonies and remained so for state taxes until the early 1800s.

Fuentes says she has to deal with "tons" of shady people in the industry. She says vendors have offered to sell her extract that contains specified levels of CBD or other compounds. They send her samples, which she sends to her lab. The samples check out fine, so she orders a kilogram--but when she sends a bit of that order to the lab, "it's not the same thing they sent me as a sample. And there is no recourse." Green Roads spends $30,000 to $40,000 a month testing their raw materials for pesticides, solvents, and metals, and it requires certificates of origin from their suppliers as well.
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.
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.
HempWorx CBD Oil and My Daily Choice have been shipping internationally to more than 85 countries since 2014. With the purest CBD Oil line of products launched in May of 2017, we did not expect the overnight success that this product has become, but we have grown buy adding a new warehouse in Nevada to handle domestic needs and our New York warehouse to handle most international shipping including Canada. CBD is one of the most beneficial products in natural medicine today. We proudly offer shipping to Australia, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, and many more countries worldwide.
To date the FDA has only approved one drug containing CBD and that was only after it was shown to meet rigorous scientific standards. Last November, the FDA shipped warning letters to four CBD companies for making unproven health claims. Last summer, Josh Zwagil warned distributors to avoid using words like “cures,” “prevents,” and “treats” in the marketing of HempWorx products because regulators like the FDA are keeping close watch, the Canadian Broadcasting Company reported. Clearly, that message was not received by all distributors. (See more on the legal issue in the last section of this article.)
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.
The Best way to take our CBD oil under the tongue. Our CBD oil drops are the most powerful because you place them under your tongue and they absorb right into your bloodstream. The herbal drops are by far the most concentrated form of CBD because you are getting in sublingually (under the tongue). There’s a 98% absorption rate with the tincture drops because the CBD gets absorbed right into the bloodstream. Count the drops out looking a mirror so as not to waste or take more than needed. Hold for 90 seconds and do not drink or eat for up to 15 minutes to ensure you don’t wash any away. You want as much of the CBD as possible to absorb into the bloodstream. Eating and drinking CBD oil is less effective since the stomach and digestive system break it down and it gets filtered out by liver leaving less CBD available to be absorbed into the bloodstream, and also taking much longer to notice the effects of the CBD.
I'm in love with the hemp oil. I've had chronic knee pain for 20 yrs from playing soccer in college and it's GONE! I'm a HUGE fan and will be sharing my testimony to everyone. It's a relief to finally have relief from not aching all the time ! I'm a believer! I have had 5 knee surgeries in my life and need 2 more…( soccer goalie) Hempworx is the ONLY thing that's given me relief from the constant aching pain. I'm a true believer in this product!
What is clear, though, is the DEA’s classification of all cannabis extracts as Schedule 1 controlled substances. Even as more states “legalize it,” all forms of cannabis are still illegal under federal law. And that’s a problem for HempWorx distributors who have to move product. As the DEA spokeswoman told the Port City Daily news site in North Carolina, where marijuana is illegal but decriminalized: “The plant, for human consumption, is illegal, bottom line. If you ship it — then that’s interstate commerce, that’s trafficking, and so that’s a problem.”
And now that the updated U.S. Farm Bill has been passed which more or less legalizes hemp, we can expect to start seeing more and more very high quality CBD oils hit the American market in the coming years. HempWorx has been around for awhile, and they’re simply doing what they can from a business perspective in order to gain a foothold in the industry. In our mind, this should not take away at all from the quality of their products.
