HempWorx did not come into the picture until May 2017, when it merged into My Daily Choice and became its flagship product, supplementing the line of “nutritional sprays” promoted for everything from weight loss (Trim 365) to cognitive function (simply, Brain). The idea for HempWorx came in the waiting room of a doctor’s office. “I was really sick,” Josh’s wife, Jenna Zwagil, said in a recent interview in which she recounted the visit. As the story goes, in 2014, she was diagnosed with celiac disease. She cut gluten out of her diet but wasn’t getting better. As she waited to be called in for her appointment, she started reading an article on her phone on “the power of cannabis” in treating autoimmune disorders like hers. When she finished the article, she said, she walked out of the office without seeing the doctor to immediately seek out cannabidiol or CBD. Josh and Jenna Zwagil’s “How We Met” story, posted on a shared Facebook account, picks it up from there:
HempWorx is a member of the Hemp Industries Association, and they are a highly reputable, transparent company. Their antimicrobial and gas chromatography tests plus current CoAs are readily available on their website. These positive brand features along with HempWorx’s high-grade, highly-reviewed, and affordable products have caught the attention of RevOffers.
3. Is the CBD oil sold by Hempworx a bad product? No. To their credit, Hempworx does post third party lab reports posted on its website. Third party lab reports are the only way to really know what’s in the product you are buying. The Hempworx lab reports clearly show the amount of CBD and other cannabinoids including trace amounts of THC in the Hempworx CBD oil tincture. By all accounts, Hempworx CBD oil is of reasonably good quality. However, it’s worth noting that their posted lab reports do not show results of heavy metal, pesticide and residual solvents testing. The omission of these test results is concerning.
Hempworx probably has some utility as a multi-level marketing tool. If we believe the lab reports, the CBD oil may be a good product. It has at least 10 mg of CBD per dropper, and less than 1 mg of other cannabinoids. Even the coffee tells you exactly how much CBD is in it and it is a therapeutic amount. So, they get a good grade for this. This is a good mix of cannabinoids. However, it comes at the expense of an affiliate program so the price is significantly marked up.
For even more assurance about a product’s quality, Boyar recommends checking the COA to see whether it says that the lab meets “ISO 17025” standards. That suggests the lab adheres to high scientific standards. Also look to see whether a company uses testing methods validated by one of three respected national standard-setting organizations: the Association of Official Agricultural Chemists (AOAC), the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia (AHP), or the U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP).
The next concern to address - how is the compensation plan and how does it compare to others? After researching several CBD affiliate programs, it became clear that the HempWorx affiliate program had by far the most lucrative program and you can view details here - My Daily Choice Compensation Plan - as you will see there are 8 different ways you are compensated and the opportunity in my opinion is fair and generous if you are willing to work at it and advance in rank as your sales volume increases.
Legalization removes these barriers and is expected to provide a boost to the U.S. hemp industry, which was previously on track to grow to a $2 billion market by 2022 prior to the Farm Bill's passage. According to the Brightfield Group, though, legalization would result in a $22 billion hemp-derived CBD market by 2022, which excludes the many other types of hemp-derived products on the market. To put that in perspective, the entire domestic cannabis industry (which includes not just hemp, but also cannabis and all its derivative products) was projected to stimulate $23.4 billion in consumer spending by 2022. That means if the Brightfield Group's estimates are accurate, hemp-derived CBD alone could double the projected market value of the entire cannabis industry.
In 1996, a study published in the clinical journal Nature found that chocolate contains thre...e fatty acid compounds that bind directly to cannabinoid receptors or indirectly act on them through increased anandamide levels (by inhibiting the FAAH enzyme). The endocannabinoid anandamide, which is commonly called “natural tetrahydrocannabinol” (or THC), is “a brain lipid that binds to cannabinoid receptors with high affinity and mimics the psychoactive effects of plant-derived cannabinoid drugs.” This suggests that certain chocolate compounds act on the same receptors as cannabis does. Though some researchers today question whether the compounds actually do bind to the receptors directly, the majority agree that chocolate does increase anandamide levels, thus affecting them indirectly.
Until recently, Hempworx had a page of “testimonials” on their corporate website. It’s since been removed. Likely because the FDA doesn’t look kindly on fake testimonials. Most people assume that testimonials are from satisfied customers who have no affiliation with Hempworx. But this was not the case. The “testimonials” on their website were all from high-ranking affiliates who sell Hempworx. So in reality, these are hardly impartial reviews.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the numerous compounds found in the cannabis plant. CBD oil can be obtained from two different species of cannabinoids: marijuana and hemp, which come from the same plant species called Cannabis sativa. Hemp-based CBD oil products have a lower delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration, while marijuana-derived CBD oil products have a relatively high concentration of THC. Therefor, marijuana-based CBD products can be used only when they are prescribed by doctors while hemp-based CBD oils do not normally require a prescription.
With the signing of the 2018 Farm Bill, however, that is all about to change. Hemp legalization was first introduced by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican from industrial hemp-producing Kentucky. The measure, known as Section 7606, ends the Schedule I status of industrial hemp under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), which categorized the plant as a potentially addictive substance with no medical uses alongside drugs like heroin and ecstasy.
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.
