Also, as with any other MLM program, typically the ones who jump on board first are often the ones who really make a lot of money with the company. Unfortunately, many of these MLM companies end up being shut down later and people who have made significant amounts of money end up losing all of it due to government intervention. After all, there’s a very thin line between an MLM opportunity and a pyramid scheme. Often, this line can be very difficult to discern and will go undetected for many years.
Josh Zwagil appears to cross both these lines when he claims in an “opportunity” video that those “looking to go all in and build a full-time income” can do so with his MLM, without disclosing what the company’s Policies and Procedures make abundantly clear — which is that most distributors spend more on products than they earn in the compensation plan (See next section). Top HempWorx distributor Judy Stallings, who has been introduced at conventions as the “first-ever 250K affiliate,” has also used inappropriate income claims to bring people into the MLM, writing on her Facebook page last December:
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.
Should any legal disputes arise between a distributor and the company, proceedings shall take place in Dallas, Texas, where the matter will be resolved by “mandatory, final, binding, nonappealable arbitration.” However, if the distributor wins, it won’t be a great victory as damages are “limited to the amount of products [he or she] has purchased from the company that are in resalable condition.”
My name is Debbie Myers from Grand Terrace, California. Getting involved with MDC (My Daily Choice) & HempWorx is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. These products are truly unique and people from all over the world are getting incredible results. After seeing what these products do for me and my family, I decided to share them with everyone I can, just as they were shared with me.
All Hempworx Distributors can sell all of the other My Daily Choice products worldwide. If you like those products you may want to get started that way. This was the last PDF Hempworx distributed. If you scroll down the PDF file, near the end, you will see the timetable for reentering the EU, Canada, and Ghana. Hempworx missed the July target date to begin shipping to Canada.
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.”
Although the HempWorx ‘About Us’ page is filled with excellent information on the history of CBD, there is unfortunately little data about the actual organization itself. We did learn, however, that they use “special” supercritical technology that extracts over 400 phytonutrients from the raw hemp material, and that they don’t use any harmful solvents or heat, which is of course a good thing.
