1) Startup Costs - Most of cannabis business opportunities require a ton of start up money. For example, opening a retail dispensary requires $250k+ minimum and many I see are well over $1M. Even if you do have that kind of cash to invest in a cannabis business, you just upped your RISK exponentially because you also have a ton of ongoing operational costs as well - commercial rent, inventory, staff, regulatory requirements and a never-ending list of EXPENSES.
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.
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.
HempWorx distributors have also emphasized “the power of recruiting” in order to be successful. But here’s the thing: If making money as a distributor depends more on a person’s ability to recruit others than sell product, the vast majority of distributors will inevitably fail. Moreover, a de-emphasis on product sales opens an MLM to criticism of operating a pyramid scheme.
“As we researched hemp food products, the majority of it was as a base ingredient for shakes and smoothies,” says Dolgin. “We believe the next iteration of the hemp market is to go into snack foods, to give it wider penetration into households,” he says. “We’re looking at products like ice cream and beer. We already have a pretty broad product portfolio, and we want to get even more innovative.”
I started taking CBD three months ago...I was skeptical in the beginning like most; I learned about CBD from a support group I was in for parents with children with ADHD, Autism and other child brain development issues. So I started researching more about it, everything I read was incredibly possitive but almost too good to be true....Then I started researching brands and companies and I stumbled upon HempWorx because I was scrolling through PB and saw a post from a friend who was using it and I was blown away by her testimonial. So I made the leap, 30 days to try it and get a full refund... why the heck not!! Long story short, after two weeks my 10 year old son started to show us it was working!! We decided one weekend to use all CBD and we were in utter shock! He was less impulsive, eating three meals a day and he said he just felt more like him self... meaning the medicine wasn’t making him feel like he was in a trance :)
These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. Most work-place drug screens and tests target delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and do not detect the presence of Cannabidiol (CBD) or other legal natural hemp based constituents. Even though our products contain less than .3% THC by dry weight (Federal Legal Limit), studies have shown that ingesting Full Spectrum CBD can cause confirmed positive results when screening urine and blood specimens. Accordingly, if you are subject to any form of employment drug testing or screening, we recommend (as does the United States Armed Services) that you DO NOT take our products. Before taking our products, consult with your healthcare practitioner, drug screening testing company or employer. This website requires you to also be at least 18 years or older to purchase our products.
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.
Hemp extract is taken from the whole plant and contains higher levels of CBD than hemp seed oil. This is where the CBD levels come from. However, we are confused by the labeling. If we expect the 500 product to have 500 mg of CBD, are we right? The label shows 500 mg of ‘phytocannabinoid hemp oil’. The solution is that about 160% of that is CBD, with the other cannabinoids as a tag along. This is effective.
They make selling it look SO amazing and SO easy to start making money. They pull you in their trap and don’t help you at all like they say they’re going to. I spent $234 on my first order.. Made only $28 the first month, and then $49 the next month. Bought another $70 worth of bullshit & I haven’t made anything. I watched all the training videos, posted daily, but still nothing! Unless you want to be on your phone constantly, lose money, and be tricked into this business. DON’T DO IT. Don’t sign up as an affiliate you are wasting your money.
For those unfamiliar with the status of hemp these days, Dolgin supplies the 30-second download: “In the ’70s it got caught up with marijuana in the anti-drug laws. It stayed that way for several decades, until the tobacco industry hit rock bottom and states like Virginia realized they need a new crop for farmers. In 2014 the passage of the U.S. Farm Bill allowed states to conduct hemp pilot programs. You could grow hemp if you were certified and licensed.” Because of the government work Dolgin had done, he was able to work closely with state senators and Governor Andrew Cuomo’s office to pass a series of bills that allowed JD Farms to grow hemp. The industry is currently a $688 million business in the U.S.
It didn’t take long after U.S. consumers accepted kale as a superfood for the leafy green to take off. The same thing could easily happen to hemp seeds once more American farmers are allowed to cultivate and sell the crop. For perspective on the potential business opportunity, consider that Canadian farmers exported $45 million worth of hemp seed to the U.S. in 2016, making as much as $300 per acre, per season, farming industrial hemp. That’s five to 10 times as much as what our farmers in the Midwest are currently making for growing GMO wheat, corn and soy.
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.
If you do not live inside the United States wait until the company is actually shipping products to your country. Sometimes, new Hempworx Distributors tell me they joined and waiting for the products to be available in their country. It’s now 2019, and no other countries have been opened. Wait until the products are available in your country. After that, you can become a Hempworx Distributor.
Overall, based on my personal HempWorx CBD oil review I would probably recommend HempWorx for people who have been (or plan on) using CBD as a routine daily treatment. Their 750 CBD oil was pretty effective for may anxiety and panic attacks, and it definitely helped me get to sleep in the evenings where I was having more intense episodes than normal.
