The idea for HempWorx came during a doctor’s office visit. Jenna Zwagil, co-founder, recounted how she was really sick. As the story goes, Jenna was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2014. She cut gluten from her diet, but she wasn’t feeling any better. While waiting for her appointment at the doctor’s office, she began reading an article on “the power of cannabis” on her phone, which was about treating autoimmune disorders using cannabis.
HempWorx CBD is an interesting brand that has no issue with transparency in terms of how they operate as a business, and where they source their raw hemp plant material from. Also, one of the main things that stands out to me as that they’re one of the only companies I know of that offers specific dosing guidelines for a range of serious medical conditions. This is a bit odd, however, as they also make it clear that CBD is not approved by the FDA as a medicine, and thus none of their products are designed to “treat, cure, or prevent” any disease.
