Hemp products sold in stores are most often made with hemp seed oil, which can contain only trace amounts of CBD. While it has been noted that hemp seed oil can be a great source of nutrition, its marginal quantity of CBD per weight makes it unfeasible as a CBD supplement. Our CBD hemp oil, however, is extracted from the stalk of specifically selected hemp cultivars, offering higher percentages of CBD by weight and additional nutritional benefits from the contents of our oil.
Hemp imports to the United States – consisting of hemp seeds and fibers often used as inputs for use in further manufacturing – totaled $67.3 million in 2017, 57% decrease in seed imports from 2017, and the first half of 2018 puts the import market on pace for a 20% decrease. This descending trend is expected to continue as the U.S. hemp market continues to mature.
While hemp might seem like a new phenomenon, its history dates back to the 1600s when growing hemp was encouraged for use in sails, ropes and clothing. However, in the 1900s, hemp was frowned upon by the government: in 1937, the Marijuana Tax Act banned hemp and marijuana cultivation. Yet, it wasn’t before long that industries realized the crop's benefits: In the 1940s, the government launched its “Hemp for Victory” program encouraging farmers to grow hemp to contribute to the war efforts and to be used in ropes, parachutes and other necessities. However, after the war, the laws went back to banning hemp. But in 2014 the U.S. Farm Bill was passed, allowing people to cultivate hemp as long as they registered and received a license.
I DID go off my opioids! Next week I am halving my Cymbalta with the aim of going off it as well! I simply cannot believe how I feel! My depression is relieved, my anxiety lessened. I did have tension headaches when I started the drops but I was SO nervous about withdrawal symptoms I was making myself anxious! The headaches are now gone. I have energy! Water retention gone! Slight decrease in appetite! Very little pain! No morning stiffness! I am happy! I am content! I am so blessed to have found this company! I can't say enough about how good I feel. I know I sound like a cheesy ad for this company but quite sincerely? I never thought I would feel this good again. I am both speechless and yelling from the rooftops at the same time! I actually knelt down for the first time in 15 years without a knife in my right knee! I have an ACL injury (1990s) and water on the knee, and I knelt down and vacuumed under the bed! Heck, I changed the sheets AND vacuumed in the SAME DAY! If you have pain, you know how special THAT is!!
When you have a child who suffers from impulsivity, and peer to peer issues, society can tend to be pretty cruel to what they do not understand. People just see you as the “bad” child. As a parent you will do anything to protect them from this cruel world. Because you as the Mom know the heart of your child, while others pass their judgements upon him.
And now that the updated U.S. Farm Bill has been passed which more or less legalizes hemp, we can expect to start seeing more and more very high quality CBD oils hit the American market in the coming years. HempWorx has been around for awhile, and they’re simply doing what they can from a business perspective in order to gain a foothold in the industry. In our mind, this should not take away at all from the quality of their products.
Ten years later, the 2014 Farm Bill established pilot programs in which universities and state agencies could grow industrial hemp, defined as containing less than 0.3 percent THC, for research purposes. It would be the first time since the 1937 law was passed that hemp could be legally cultivated and harvested in the U.S. The commercial cultivation, harvest and processing of hemp, however, remained federally illegal.

1. Is Hempworx a scam? No. CBD oil scams do exist whereby consumers are deceived and grossly overcharged for a poor quality product. Hempworx is a real product of reasonably good quality that is sold to customers that willingly purchase it. Hempworx does sell its products through multi-level marketing (MLM). This is the same sales strategy used by companies like Avon, Doterra, Rodan & Fields, Advocare and a host of others. Each sale is credited to one of their affiliates who receive a commission for the sale. Affiliates are also incented to recruit new affiliates to sell the product. While the MLM business model can be controversial and the authenticity of testimonials from those selling the product can be questioned, that doesn’t make it a scam.
Also, all HempWorx products are 100% organic and non-genetically modified, and the company apparently makes all of its products right here in the United States. Moreover, the hemp used to extract the oil is grown in Kentucky, and unlike a lot of firms who claim their CBD products to be lab tested, HempWorx actually ‘walks the walk’ by publishing up-to-date details of their test results on the site (you can find them under the “HempWorx Store” tab by clicking the “CBD Oil Certification” button).
