Welcome to this Kannaway CBD Oil review.
Kannaway is one of the first MLM companies to come on stream in this thriving CBD Oil Industry, which is forecast by 2024 to become a $12+ billion-dollar industry.
Not sure just what an MLM is and need a helping hand, then do yourself a favour and check out this article first, that way you get an idea of what to look out for before joining one.
Against drugs totally, then I can relate with this also, but what we aren’t talking about here is Marijuana. No; we are talking infused CBD Oil products, coming from the Hemp Plant, which is very different.
There’s a big difference here as Hemp has been around for thousands of years and used for many applications, such as paint, rope, textiles, food, and medicines, amongst many other things and is legal in all the states in the USA.
Medicines, you may ask?
Yes, even the Big Pharmaceuticals have got in on the act as you can see here by this Forbes article, so it must be OK then, right?
So, without further ado, let’s get into this Kannaway review and see what you make of it.

What is Kannaway, and who are the founders?
Kannaway is an MLM or multi-level-marketing company, founded by Dr Stuart Titus in 2014 and based in San Diego, California.
They are a provider of Hemp CBD oil products to the consumer worldwide and one of the first companies to do business with cannabis.
They make claims on their site as the first company to publicly trade cannabis in the US way back in 2009, but seeing that Kannaway was founded in 2014 then that can’t be true.
What is true is that the company to claim this is, in fact, Medical Marijuana Inc who is the parent company of Kannaway? Not that this should matter!
Dr Stuart Titus comes with a wealth of experience in the Marijuana and Hemp industry.
What I also find interesting is that when Stuart took over the realms of Medical Marijuana Inc from Michael Llamas, he was at the time indicated for a Ponzi Scheme. Talk about pyramid schemes, eh?
Even links to Stratton Oakmont, which was the basis for the film “Wolf of Wall Street”.
Anyway, times change but just amazing what a little research can do and change your whole perspective on something.
So, want to know more about Kannaway, then check out this presentation, but keep an open mind and don’t be taken in by certain claims, remember you should check out these claims yourself afterwards.
Kannaway has a saying – “share the life-changing benefits of hemp-based cannabidiol (CBD) with every individual and family and empower you to do the same for your community”. I myself have reservations!
I like the fact that Kannaway invests some of their time in charity work which is always a great thing.
The charity is Echo Connection who provide education-collaboration-hope to families with special needs who rely heavily on cannabinoid products to get by on a day to day basis.
It has to be said that more and more people are turning to CBD Oil for their pain relief and this is evident by the number of companies that are active in this thriving market, especially MLM’s.
Obviously, there is money to be made here, but I wouldn’t jump in just yet until you weigh up the pros and cons.
CBD and THC Explained and the benefits of CBD?
What is CBD and THC?
CBD or Cannabidiol and THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol both come from the Marijuana and Hemp plants.
They share the same molecular structure, although the atoms are slightly arranged differently.
Marijuana still carries a lot of stigma across many governments and still banned in many countries and always under scrutiny, more so than Hemp, but times are changing.
The reason for this is 2-fold.
The THC which is what gives you the high, coming from the Marijuana plant can be as high or even higher than 20% and the law states that the maximum dosage cannot exceed 0.3%.
But, The Hemp plant has far less THC, in fact only trace elements, but with a higher dosage of CBD, which is why manufacturers and suppliers choose the industrial hemp route.
This short video presentation pretty much covers what we briefly discussed above, but in more detail.
The benefits of CBD Oil.
- Neuroprotective Properties
Through research, they found that CBD may provide relief for people with neurological disorders, like MS and epilepsy.
Whilst they have made some breakthroughs in this area, more research needs to be done.
It has proven an oral spray containing both THC and CBD to be very effective in reducing the spasms brought on by MS.
- Ease Pain
The main reason people approach CBD Oil is for help to relieve pain, which current medication doesn’t appear to be doing or the effects have worn off.
- Anxiety and Depression
Anxiety and depression are always in the headlines and normally treated with drugs, but even those wear off over time because of our immune system, which gets used to them.
These drugs have been known to cause several side effects which can have an adverse effect on the sufferer.
CBD is known to have a calming effect and with little or no side-effects.
- Cancer-Related Symptoms
CBD could help in the side effects of chemo, radiation amongst other cancer treatments.
Through a study, they found that a THC and CBD combination helped in pain relief other than THC or CBD used entirely on their own.
The anti-inflammatory properties in the CBD known to reduce swelling in secretion glands.
It was found through scientific studies that CBD had the ability to decrease blood pressure.
Getting used to CBD and now CBDA is all the rage?
CBDA, or Cannabidiolic acid, is a precursor to CBD.
A heating process has to take place for CBD to exist whilst the CBDA disappears.
In other words, there would be no CBD without CBDA.
Whilst CBD is getting all the credit, its parent (so to speak) CBDA doesn’t, but times are now changing with some products including both CBD and CBDA.
Through research CBDA in its raw form is known to be many times stronger than CBD. Tweek the manufacturing process to accommodate CBDA and we are onto something potentially very big.
A company at the very forefront of the CBD Oil industry is the Swiss company Cibdol. See what they have to say about CBDA here.
You can watch this 3-minute video that goes into more detail about the difference between CBD and CBDA, and the benefits of CBDA.
Kannaway Product Line
The Kannaway product line is extensive and the CBD oil comes in various forms, such as Nutritional, Vapes, Skincare, Essential Oils, Gels, Mints, Pets and even clothing products.

You can check out their entire list of products here
Let’s take a look at the Bibong Formula, which Kannaway use in their product line?
Bibong formulas are a way to blend herbs together which have been handed down through centuries and represent the pinnacle in the herbal formulation.
They can help to revitalize the cells in our bodies by increasing the “chi” and removing any blockages.
Chi if you didn’t know in Chinese stands for “Universal life force energy”, which for many means “all that there is”.
In Japan they represent it as “ki” and the energy healing modality is “Reiki”. The art of energy healing, of which I am a Reiki Master.
Kannaway state that they use this formula throughout the product range, which according to them make their products unique.
Remember to always have an open mind when evaluating such claims as what you will normally find is that they will all claim their products are the best and better than they actually are.
However, Kannaway does provide all the certificates to back up their claims along with 3rd party independent testing.
Kannaway Business Opportunity – What you need to know
All MLM’s follow the same business model except for maybe the different plans they can adopt, which determine how you will get paid.
If you haven’t already read the article on “What is an MLM?” then I would suggest looking first before you continue. That should clear up a few misguided ideas that you may.
An important fact before you join is that a large percentage of people coming into a network marketing business will leave after 12 months and many won’t make a dime.
Somewhere between 50 and 65 per cent is normal, which is pretty shocking if you ask me.
It’s imperative that you do a thorough job of researching the company in as much detail as you can, especially the sponsor if this is the road that you want to take.
To become a success in this business requires good knowledge in the various marketing strategies that are out there, and for someone new coming in, can be extremely confusing and costly.
You join Kannaway by becoming a Brand Ambassador and paying the $54.98 annual fee in the US or €47.80 annual fee for non-US.
As part of the membership, you will get…
• Replicated Kannaway Websites
• Kannaway Secure Back Office
• Kannaway Training and Support Tools
• Administrative Support
That is the base fee to join, of course, you can speed up how you stand in the rankings by purchasing what they call “FastStart” value packs which are very pricey.
I am not going to start putting down figures and examples because these have a tendency to change at a moments notice.
Suffice to say the information is available as a pdf and video in the next section.
Let’s look at the Kannaway Compensation Plan
These are pretty much what make or break an MLM business and you really have to get your head around them sometimes.
They should be simple and straightforward, but they often aren’t.
If you’d like a little light-reading, then be my guest and check out this hard copy, otherwise sit back and listen to someone telling you it is a very simple compensation plan. I’ll leave that up to you to decide!
What others say about Kannaway
$2500 I would say is expensive, but if you want to speed up the process then you have to invest.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any reviews in the normal manner which I find very strange. If the products are so good then why aren’t they all over sites like Trustpilot, etc.
Any review you find on the Kannaway website is going to be positive and biased therefore not a place to really go to.
What I like about Kannaway
Kannaway really appears to be on the ball when it comes to their product and the handling of it from initial concept to the finished article.
- Organically Grown
They claim that all their products are organically grown in Europe, and therefore exempt from herbicides and pesticides.
- Triple lab tested
They are one of the first CBD Oil businesses to follow strict guidelines that comply with GMP (Good manufacturing practices)
- Skincare products
Exempt from any animal testing, lab certified and transparent
- There’s no GMO (Genetically Modified Organism)
- Product Certificates
Certificates are available for anyone to check out through their website.
- US Hemp authority stamp seal of approval
What I don’t like about Kannaway
Here are some of the pitfalls and pretty much what people are looking for.
- Products I find Expensive
You will find all products coming from an MLM business with a high price tag and with a little research on your behalf, you can find a similar product much cheaper. Whether this is as good or not is another issue!
- Great products then where are the Great Reviews?
You would think that you would find great reviews all over the internet, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. Yes, you will find reviews on their website, but that isn’t a place to go to find unbiased reviews.
- BBB (Better Business Bureau)
- No Income Disclosure
This is an area that I always look for when researching a company and not finding payment disclosure for me tells me they have something to hide.
- A fact of all MLMs
Only the top 1-3 per cent actually make any real money and that’s not just with Kannaway, that’s across the board.
- Many leave
You find a lot of newbies coming into an MLM business looking for easy money.
You might earn some money in the early days if you have a sponsor who is prepared to help and guide you, and that’s if you are lucky.
Normally what you will find is that above 50% of members joining will have left after 12 months. That’s not me talking BS, it’s a fact!
Is Kannaway a Worthy Business to get involved with?
On the basis, Kannaway looks like a great business to get involved with and if you have experience with MLM’s then there’s no reason why you wouldn’t succeed.
If you are new to this kind of business then it is not going to be an overnight success. It’s going to take a lot of time and dedication, just like it would for any business.
Kannaway does appear to have some great products, but that alone is not going to make you a success in this industry, especially with the amount of competition there is.
Had some bad experiences with MLM companies in the past and therefore I sort of having an idea of how difficult they can be.
I should have called time on trying to make a living online and nearly did if it wasn’t for determination and sheer persistence.
Further research showed me that Affiliate Marketing for me was a better solution and the right one that I was looking for. One that anybody could learn.
It was all about finding the right training and after many hours looking I came across Wealthy Affiliate. Everything you would ever need to succeed is within this training platform.
No BS, No Upsells, Free to join and nobody asked for my credit card details either. A no brainer, and you won’t be disappointed either.
