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.

To date the FDA has only approved one drug containing CBD and that was only after it was shown to meet rigorous scientific standards. Last November, the FDA shipped warning letters to four CBD companies for making unproven health claims. Last summer, Josh Zwagil warned distributors to avoid using words like “cures,” “prevents,” and “treats” in the marketing of HempWorx products because regulators like the FDA are keeping close watch, the Canadian Broadcasting Company reported. Clearly, that message was not received by all distributors. (See more on the legal issue in the last section of this article.)
Hemp, a non-intoxicating form of the plant Cannabis sativa (L.), was outlawed in the U.S. in 1937 when Congress passed the Marihuana Tax Act. Although most states have legalized hemp in some form since, the federal prohibition meant interstate commerce involving the plant and its derivative products remained illegal. Jenelle Kim, co-founder and lead formulator of hemp product manufacturer JBK Wellness Labs, said the prohibition overshadowed thousands of years of hemp usage in human culture.

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).
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.
I have auto immune disease, rheumatoid arthritis, spinal stenosis, spinal scoliosis, bulging discs on nerve roots, chronic pain, neuropathy, depression, anxiety. I am/was on five pharma meds: Ralivia 100mg, Cymbalta 60mg, Tecta 40mg, Paxil 30mg and Hydromorphone 1mg (as needed). I am a walking chemical! And I believe I have found a solution!!! I now have HOPE! for the first time in nine years. I have been 'permanently disabled' for over seven. I was in constant pain! I was so disheartened that my life had become almost unbearable!
Reading a little bit more into the “business opportunity”, I quickly realized that it is not an affiliate program. Instead, it’s an MLM company that for some reason or another is trying to make it sound like you’re working as an affiliate marketer instead of building an MLM business. I’m not sure exactly why the company is trying to phrase things like this, it certainly sends up a red flag to me as it should you also.
While Jenna’s “How I cured my celiac disease” story is inspiring and research into the therapeutic effects of CBD is promising, especially in the treatment of seizures and other neurological disorders, the FDA is clear: Marketing supplements as having the ability to treat, cure, alleviate the symptoms of, or prevent developing diseases is simply not permitted by law. Yet that has not stopped Jenna and distributors from claiming that HempWorx treats a number of diseases, including Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, AIDS and cancer, often as an alternative to traditional treatments. In fact, TINA.org has amassed a database of more than 100 inappropriate and illegal health claims. They include:

A topical rub whose proven ingredients are quickly absorbed through the skin to help melt away tension, muscle aches, joint pains, and symptoms related to rheumatoid arthritis. In fact, HempWorx advertises that CBD products (not Relief Icy Rub, specifically) have been shown to help relieve pain more effectively than opioid painkillers in some instances:
This kind of commission plan can lead some affiliates of Hempworx to engage in dishonest behavior as one might imagine, to create sales and earn greater rewards. The examples of bad behavior start from violent, forceful sales tactics to making absolute false statements. Some reports are also of Hempworx affiliates pushing people into registering for the auto-ship option. Products are automatically shipped out monthly to the consumer with auto-ship. It earns affiliates even greater rewards.
As the cannabis plant awaits a high-stakes review from international health authorities, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is inviting the public to weigh in on whether cannabis, CBD and other cannabis extracts should declassified as a controlled substance. The UN’s World Health Organization made a preliminary announcement in December that CBD has a low […]
That is an amazing testimonial of what Hempworx can do! I lost my grandmother to Dementia 5 years ago, and I can tell you firsthand that it is one of the most heartbreaking diseases to lose someone to. If CBD Oil would have been commercially available the way it is today then I would have definitely given it a try…even if it meant that I would only get my grandmother back for a short period of time. I miss her so much  😥

HempWorx uses only industrial, GMO-free Kentucky hemp grown using organic methods under the 2014 Farm Bill and the Government Pilot Program for Hemp Research. The result is high potency and consistency in each compound processed via solvent-free CO2 extraction.

The innovative topicals include high-end skincare varieties rich in healing properties. The powerful anti-aging cream treats wrinkles with 50 mg CBD, while their Revive cream includes other anti-agers like collagen and retinol. HempWorx’s pet line features dog treats that are soy-free, grain-free, and corn-free plus oil tinctures for pain/anxiety relief.

Hemp products sold in stores are most often made with hemp seed oil, which can contain only trace amounts of full spectrum. While it has been noted that hemp seed oil can be a great source of nutrition, its marginal quantity of “full spectrum” per weight makes it unfeasible as a full spectrum supplement. Our Full Spectrum Hemp Oil, however, is extracted from the stalk of specifically selected hemp cultivars, offering higher percentages of “full spectrum” by weight and additional nutritional benefits from the contents of our oil.
This is verifiable thanks to third-party lab reports. The reports are posted directly on the HempWorx website, showing you that they have nothing to hide. Every batch is tested by a third-party laboratory, which conducts a gas chromatography test, antimicrobial tests, potency tests, and provides certificates of analysis. You can see all of these on the website.

San Francisco-based tech company Eaze launched a new online marketplace, Eaze Wellness, to ship hemp-derived CBD products to 41 states across the U.S. and the District of Columbia. CBD sales more than doubled among the company’s customers last year, Sheena Shiravi, Eaze’s director of consumer communications, told Fortune, highlighting a key business opportunity. This marks the company’s […]
For products made with CBD from hemp, even Colorado doesn’t require testing of the finished product. So any COA for those final products comes from testing the company arranged on its own. Though not all manufacturers take that step, many do, Lanier says. That includes even some companies that use imported hemp, such as CV Sciences, which makes Plus CBD Oil from hemp grown in Holland.
And those choices are soon likely to become even more confusing: The CBD market is expected to multiply at least sevenfold by 2021, to $2.15 billion, up from $292 million in 2016, according to the Brightfield Group, a market research firm that specializes in cannabis. Even Coca-Cola says it’s “closely watching” the growing interest in CBD and its potential as an ingredient in some of the company’s beverages.   
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.”
Hempworx oil literally changed our lives. After me using it for 23 days my husband commented on how calmer I seemed, how I was sleeping hard at night, and I noticed how I had 0 night sweats, hot flashes, or migraines. We then gave it to our daughter who is officially off of Ritalin! She is happier and healthier. Webused to go to the doctor twice a month for weigh ins or because she was sick. Her epic meltdowns used to be 2-4 a week. Since using this oil. We’ve been to the doctor 2 times! Her meltdowns have only happened twice!!!
Our products are non GMO, organic, made in the USA, and very rich in the raw materials we use. We are confident in our products because we utilize the full spectrum Cannabis plant so all parts of the plant work synergistically together to give you full benefits of CBD and our customers will get better results with our products than any others in the marketplace!

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.
In states that have only legalized the medical, not recreational, use of marijuana, testing is less consistent, Boyar says. Several states—including Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, and New York—do require some testing of products, according to the National Cannabis Industry Association. But others don’t, including Arizona and Michigan.
Eating chocolate, interestingly enough, is not the only common experience associated with the cannabinoid system. A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in 2015 found that increased levels of oxytocin—a.k.a. “the love hormone” that enhances the bond between lovers—prompts the release of anandamide, which then acts on the cannabinoid receptors. This means the cannabinoid system also plays a role in the “love experience.”

In my opinion Hempworx is not a scam. I have been using their 750 CBD oil for 5 months now and it is awesome. I have had bad knees for 10 years and had my right knee replaced 2 years ago. My left knee is not far behind, but with taking Hempworx CBD oil my daily pain is much more tolerable. I will also mention although I am not supposed to make income statements so I will keep it vague. I am making an income with Hempworx, Direct deposit to my acct every week.

No it isn’t. In Pyramid schemes you have to pay commissions to people for bringing in new recruits. Typically the new recruits have to pay an upfront fee. It supplements those higher in the pyramid. A product doesn’t even exist in many cases. Until they can no longer get enough new recruits to fund the operation the scheme continues. The company has a genuine product that is being sold. You will be charged a small fee of $20 to be an affiliate. However, the focus is on making real sales and is not a pyramid scheme.
****Please read****I enjoy some of the benefits I am receiving from there 750 bottle. I do not smoke marijuana or anything like it. I have tested myself twice with two different brands of test kits and have showed positive for THC each time. so please be aware if your drug tested you will show positive. bBut to me right now with my fibromyalgia it is worth it as long as it help's.
