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.
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.”
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.
You can get started for as little as $59 for the “Entry Pack of Pet Products at $39 + $20 Affiliate Fee,” but as you can see in the image below, you could end up investing as much as $619 for the “Executive Pack at $599 and $20 Affiliate Fee”. Just like many other MLM’s, you must continue buying a pack every single month regardless of if you use it or not.

I bought the 500 mg bottle from reps Paul and Tara. They said it was the best thing since sliced bread and that it was perfectly legal. So I started taking it daily. But saw no results. I told Tara that it is was not working. Upon her recommendation, I then bought stronger 750 mg. Still nothing. I was told to keep taking it. It will work eventually.
CBD is considered to be undetectable in saliva or urine tests, though there remains a rare instance that the small trace amounts of THC may be detected. All of our products comply with all regulations regarding minimal THC content, and our full-spectrum hemp oil contains less than .03% of THC by volume, as required by law. However, we recommend you check with your employer.
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.
Our bodies make natural chemical receptors called endocannabinoids. They are part of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), a harm reduction system found in the brain, nervous system, and elsewhere. They keep everything from our sleep to our appetites running smoothly. It is a common misconception that these receptors only live in the brain and nervous system. They can also be found in the skin, gut, and reproductive organs. They are even found in break milk!

Unlike some producers of CBD, Fuentes and Barroso never intended to grow their own hemp, which was outlawed in Florida when they began anyway. At the time, Barroso says, it was almost impossible to buy an oil containing only minimal amounts of THC. It's easier now, but supply can still be tricky: "We can't always get 10 55-gallon drums of oil," he says. Green Roads products use a blend of four to five different cannabinoids, using both oils and isolates (concentrated CBD extract in the form of a powder), designed by Fuentes.
Despite the strange wording on the website, this certificate of analysis appears to show that this product does indeed have the stated level of cbd, about 10 mg per dropper. It is confounding therefore, why they have tried to conflate cbd oil and hemp oil, even using ‘phytocannabinoid hemp oil’ on the ingredients label rather than just saying, cbd content.
Despite prohibition, the U.S. is already home to an active and thriving hemp industry, although much of it is confined to individual states because of the laws. Legalization means that U.S. farmers will now be able to grow the crop, and existing hemp companies will be able to expand unabated and undeterred by the potential for federal intervention.
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.
San Francisco-based tech company Eaze launched a new online marketplace, Eaze Wellness, to ship hemp-derived CBD products to 41 states across the U.S. and the District of Columbia. CBD sales more than doubled among the company’s customers last year, Sheena Shiravi, Eaze’s director of consumer communications, told Fortune, highlighting a key business opportunity. This marks the company’s […]
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.
Uruguay, often recognized as the pioneer in legalized recreational marijuana, is also building a solid foundation to support its hemp industry. “Uruguay is an agricultural country with a clear regulatory framework that offers attractive conditions for large-scale outdoor cultivation (of hemp),” said Maria Belen Algorta, who oversees Uruguay operations for Australia-based Ecofibre. “As far as […]
Then again: Zwagil also says, through his company’s Policies and Procedures (see above section), that you should talk to a lawyer before joining HempWorx as “laws differ according to jurisdiction,” which does not make it sound “100 percent legal.” He also gets the percentages wrong: it’s .3 percent THC, not .03 percent THC, which further supports the notion that perhaps you shouldn’t rely on him regarding cannabis laws.
The final concern to address - was the market high growth with not much competition or was it slow growth with a lot of competition or somewhere in between? This was easy and compelling to determine. One look at Google trends showed the clear demand for these products seen in graph below. Another credible source, Forbes, predicts growth of the cannabis industry to be over 700% by 2020 - in fact, no other industry is growing faster. I also looked at the competition and compared the quality of products, their pricing, marketing, etc. and found that HempWorx was a clear leader. But what about competition - was it saturated or was their room to get in and make it work? Using a variety of metric tools, I figured out that it was definitely still quite early to be venturing into this market and the opportunity for growth without a lot of competition will be available for quite some time.
I am a user of Hempworx products and cannot day enough good things about them. I take the oil 2x a day for anxiety and a couple of other health issues. Taking it at night helps with my restless leg syndrome so I can sleep soundly. I also use the Relief pain rub and it’s amazing. Post surgery on my wrist I applied it near, but not on, my incision site and it made such a difference. I never took the first pain pill. In the interest of full disclosure I will also state that I am an Independent Affiliate and sell the products. However, prior to that I was only a user. I recommend everyone try this as an alternative to pills.
I’ve used several oils before trying Hempworx. Negative reviews are often from other competitors or other MLM companies too. MLM has received a bad rep because of pushy reps and reps that have spammed people for years. It’s unfortunate that people review a product based upon their opinion of MLM reps. If you really take a look at the Hempworx oil, you will see that it is a pure product. The oil does not have any added non-hemp carrier oil. And if you go to an affiliates website, all you need to do is scroll down to the bottom and click on FAQ. You will get a ton of information. I also think people should keep in mind that if you are google searching for reviews on a particular product, pretty much all the “reviews” out there are also affiliates of each of those companies, and when you click on the links provided, they are receiving a percentage of the sale as well.
