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:
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.
Dolgin was a veteran of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the National Counterterrorism Center, both in D.C., before he got burned out on government jobs. He’d been working on cybersecurity projects in New York when he met Justh. “I grew up as a Jewish kid on Long Island,” Dolgin says. “I like the idea of making an impact in a depressed New York community, and of looking at agriculture in a new way. We began to consider hemp. Because of my regulatory background, I knew how government works—and doesn’t work.”
The thing about HempWorx is that they really don’t make things easy for the customer. Although the affiliate programme seems like a great idea, it does play into HempWorx’ pyramid business model. You receive a free product by referring a friend, and three of their friends then have to purchase the HempWorx products. For us, not listing pricing on the website is a bit of a red flag.
We would also love to connect you with an incredible mentor of ours, Robert Hollis, whose wife introduced this affiliate program to us. If you join our HempWorx team of affiliates, you will get to partner with Robert and Teri Hollis, and become part of their network as well.

Hemp seeds may very well be the world’s first, and perhaps, best superfood. They provide up to 75 percent more protein than a similar amount of flax or chia seeds and contain all 20 amino acids. They’re filled with healthy fatty acids including omega-3 and omega-6. They’re also high in fiber, iron, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, zinc, vitamin E and magnesium -- basically everything you need for a nutritious meal or snack.
As a result, customers can now be confident that most companies out there are pretty legitimate in terms of the overall safety of their products. However, you should still keep your eyes peeled and do as much research as possible, as a lot of brands are still selling non-therapeutic hemp seed oils as “CBD oils,” when in fact they contain very little of the active compound at all.
