Barroso, 48, became interested in CBD after being introduced to it by a friend in Colorado. He had long taken painkillers for a crushing football injury he sustained when he was 23. When his real estate business collapsed during the financial crisis, he invested in a pain-management clinic. Barroso describes that decision as "the worst thing ever," as he soon became addicted to opiates. Then his friend suggested he try CBD gummies, which helped him stay clean.
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.
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 earns bonus points right out of the gate by choosing to use domestically grown, organic, and non-GMO hemp, and knocks it out of the park with their evident passion for educating the public on the uses, history, and science of cannabinoids. Fun facts (such as the fact that the first American flag was made out of hemp) add a rich critical thinking element to the customer’s experience. Instead of touting it as just another supplement, HempWorx gives homage to the long-standing legacy, magic, and controversy of the heralded cannabis plant.
Dispensaries may sell a variety of “CBD-rich” products that are high in CBD and relatively low in THC, including oils, tinctures, topicals, and vaping liquids. They may even sell buds or flower from marijuana strains that have been bred to have very low levels of THC, says Michael Backes, author of "Cannabis Pharmacy: The Practical Guide to Medical Marijuana" (Black Dog & Leventhal, 2014). For example, the strain “AC/DC” can be just 0.5 percent THC, barely above the cutoff allowed for CBD from hemp and much lower than the 20 percent or higher THC concentration typical of most marijuana strains, Backes says.

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.
First off they charge to be an affiliate, there are enough CBD companies out there that don’t. They lie to you when you’re not paid on time making it seem like your fault, tell you to wait until next payday and then don’t pay you again, they actually e pert you to wait yet another week to get paid for three weeks earlier. They treat you like you’re an idiot and then lie to your face and laugh. They get pleasure from abusing the affiliates, make money off the backs of the struggeling all the while pressuring to buy more, more, MORE! Why throw good money after bad? You shouldn’t have to but that is exactly what they tell you you have to do in order to get paid. Think about this, you’re expected to go into online groups with a bunch of other people selling the same products, how is that helping you make money? It’s not. What these groups are designed to do is indoctrinate you into thinking the way they want you to think. You are the donkey and ‘helping you be successful’ is how they dangle the carrot. Does anyone really believe Josh and Jenna (her maiden name is Kahan, pun intended) make $10,000 a day? There’s videos on the internet where she claims just that. You would think with a daily income like that, they’d own the house they live in but they don’t, it’s a rental for $3,000 per month. For individuals claiming to make $10,000 a day why are they renting a home for 1/3 of Jenna’s daily income? Surely they can afford something more luxurious. The truth be told, it’s all smoke and mirrors and eventually the dominos will start to fall. I predict trouble ahead. Josh and Jenna are the modern day version of a snake oil peddler.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is just one of over 85 cannabinoids that is identified in the cannabis plant. CBD is becoming increasingly popular amongst the masses for having a wide scope of medicinal benefits – due to clinical reports and mounds of test data showing little to no side effects and a lack of psychoactivity (typically associated with marijuana products and high THC).
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.
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.
