So what is HempWorx CBD oil and is Hempworx a legitimate company that you can trust and is it a viable business to get involved with?
If you are struggling to work out what an MLM business is?
CBD Oil is all the rage nowadays and for many, looked at as some sort of “Miracle Product”, but who knows maybe it is for them.
Extreme pain can have an adverse effect on many things regarding our wellbeing, and some people tend to become desperate in times of need for pain relief.
Since the “Farm Bill” was passed in 2018, which legalised CBD Oil in many states, what we are seeing and it will continue to grow, are many businesses getting in on the act, which is creating a “Green Rush Effect“.
Especially in the MLM business world, where they are attempting to corner this rapidly growing industry.
With forecasts predicted to hit around the 3 billion dollar mark in 2020, rising to 15 billion by 2024.
HempWorx CBD oil is one of the first businesses to get in at the very start, and seem to have got their act together, what with growing and manufacturing their own products. So, are their products good enough and can you really make a living from becoming a distributor?
Let’s take a look, shall we in this Hempworx Mlm Review.

What is HempWorx and who are the founders?
But, it all really started way back in 2014, when Josh Zwagil met his wife around the time that he launched the business MyDailyChoice or MDC in November of that year.
At the time they only had 3 Hempworx products, which were nutritional sprays and through Jenna, his wife managed to earn $3,600 in her first week due to her experience in social media.
Wind the clock forward to the present day and the CBD Oil product range is quite extensive, with many more new products in the pipeline.
What I like about the way HempWorx runs its business is that they are in full control of the whole process from planting of the industrial Hemp plants right through to manufacturing and delivery of the products.
They both come from marketing and their moto so to speak is…
“Founded by Affiliate for Affiliates”
Josh has an interesting past whilst growing up he was a chess master at the age of 12 and was offered a scholarship based on that, although this didn’t last long. If you’d like to see more about him click on this link here.
Check out how it all started with a presentation from both Josh and Jenna Zwagil
The HempWorx product list offers a number of products covering a variety of categories such as…
- CBD Tinctures
- CBD Topicals
- CBD Softgels
- CBD Pet Products
- CBD Bath Bombs
- CBD Coffee
- CBD Gummies
A pretty extensive range and the quality of Hempworx products seem pretty good. If you like you can check out the whole HempWorx product range here.
Why aren’t HempWorx talking about CBDA?
OK, so what is CBDA and why aren’t businesses like HempWorx talking about it, because they should be doing as without CBDA there would be no or very little of CBD present.
Maybe, that’s a reason why people who purchase the products are complaining that many of the products just aren’t doing anything for them.
It’s important to note that both CBDA and CBD are not psychotropic, in other words, you don’t get high.
CBDA is the precursor to CBD and as to go through a heating process before it can be turned into CBD.
Watch this 3-minute short video.
CBD and THC Explained and the benefits of CBD?
What are CBD and THC?
The 2 main components that are important and found in the cannabis plants such as Marijuana and Hemp are CBD also known as Cannabidiol and THC also known as Tetrahydrocannabinol.
As we know, the THC is where you get high from.
They both share the same molecular structure, although the atoms are arranged slightly differently.
In the Marijuana plant, the THC is stronger than the THC in the Hemp plant.
Whilst the CBD in the Hemp plant is stronger than the CBD in the Marijuana plant.
The problem that governments have is the strength of the THC and law states that this can not exceed 0.3% and in the Marijuana plant this is found to be greater and inconsistent.
Check out this 4-minute video which goes into more details about the differences and the effects between CBD and THC in both plants.
The benefits of CBD Oil.
CBD Oil is very popular within the Health and Wellness Industry, and come with several benefits that have backing from the scientific community.
- CBD Oil is known to Ease Pain
Extreme pain has a massive impact on our well-being and can cause all sorts of issues especially depression, and many are prepared to try anything for any form of relief.
- May reduce the effects of Anxiety and Depression
Depression and anxiety are 2 major health disorders that can have a detrimental impact on your health and well being.
Anxiety along with depression are normally treated with pharmaceutical drugs.
It is well known that the effects of drugs over a period of time lose their effectiveness due to the body and immune system getting used to them, and therefore CBD Oil is accepted by many as a good alternative with little or no side-effects.
- Could ease Cancer-Related Symptoms
CBD Oil could help with the side-effects that come from Chemotherapy and Radiation, amongst other treatments.
A study was done using a combination of THC and CBD and found to reduce the pain better than CBD or THC used on their own.
- May Reduce Acne
Recent studies have shown that due to the CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties that it was able to reduce the swelling in the secretion glands.
- May Benefit the Health of the Heart
Scientific studies have found that CBD had the ability to lower high blood pressure.
HempWorx Business Opportunity – What you need to know
Most MLM businesses follow the same structure and you’ll find there are two ways that you can earn a living from.
In this case by selling HempWorx CBD Oil products on your own or by recruiting other people into your team to sell the products. There are no bonuses or commissions for recruiting team members.
In my mind, I think they are missing a step here, as some kind of bonus would be an incentive.
Important to find the right sponsor or leader
This is extremely difficult to do and you are usually going in blind.
What do I mean by this?
If you are new to making money online, you need to know that your sponsor comes with plenty of experience in this type of business.
The reason for this is that you will need guidance and training which in many cases doesn’t happen, as you are left to your own resources, and take it from me can be a damn nightmare. Banging your head against the wall.
Many people coming into MLM’s do look for the ones who are been successful and end up joining them, but it doesn’t mean that this particular sponsor is going to be of any benefit to you.
The more people join this sponsor the more money that sponsor will make which also means you are going to struggle even more because people want to be part of a successful team even if that means they still will not be successful.
That’s why around 50% of the people coming into this business end up leaving within the first 12 months.
A snippet is taken from the HempWorx Income Disclosure. If you like to check out the full disclosure pdf then click on the image below.
As you can see HempWorx state that 65.5% do not continue after the first year. Something seriously not right here. Can you see what I mean?
If you have a team of let’s say 100 and 65 are going to leave then there is an enthuses on recruiting more people to keep the momentum going.
That’s what happens, you have to keep recruiting to fill the void. Not only that but there will be pressure to maintain your status.
- Ways to run an MLM business and the pitfalls
If you are great at sales and marketing you are sure to do well, but the problem you’ll always find is trying to sell a business idea to someone who doesn’t really know you. You will struggle!
If you have a large email list then selling to your subscribers could be a good way of building your team, but they certainly aren’t going to be happy if they bomb and don’t make a dime.
They are surely going to unsubscribe from your email list, so you have to be careful how you approach this technique.
Many will attempt to get onboard family and friends, which in my eyes is definitely a “no-no”!
MLM’s are a numbers game, the more people who can see your marketing advert the better.
This usually requires something like PPC or Pay-Per-Click advertising. This can be very expensive if you don’t know what you are doing and can be a minefield as there are tons of advertising agencies out there just ready to take your money.
What I would suggest for anyone new to this type of business when it comes to marketing is play it safe. Use well-known strategies that already work, such as…
- Facebook Ads
- Google Adwords
- Microsoft Advertising, formerly Bing Ads.
I would certainly spend a little time and effort learning one of these methods, with Facebooks Ads probably first as its the cheapest.
My number one choice when it comes to finding prospective customers would be to use SEO or search engine optimising because it costs you “Zilch”, but this takes time to become established in Google, Bing or Yahoo.
This would not be a good choice for an MLM business, because it is not quick enough.
Make or break an MLM business can be in some cases the Payment Plan or Compensation Plan as it is so often referred to.
Let’s take a look at the Payment Plan
Payment plans should not be over complicated but you often see this with Network Marketing businesses.
As far as this one goes I sort of like it, but see for yourself and tell me what you think?
You can check out the hard copy version of the HempWorx Pay Plan here or listen to it explained and presented by CEO Josh Zwagil himself.
What others say about HempWorx
HempWorx/Associates and Untrue Product Claims
An investigation was conducted where it was found that HempWorx themselves or its associates made untrue claims about the products including medical claims.
There was found to be over 100 complaints which were reported.
Obviously, extreme sales tactics, shows desperation!
You will find distributors making all sorts of claims such as medical conditions that this miracle oil can remedy. An article from the UK, newspaper The Daily Mail exposing methods that are illegal.
Check out these HempWorx reviews of a few disgruntled distributors
You can check out further reviews at the Better Business Bureau here
Dissolved businesses in the UK
You can also check out the Better Business Bureau UK version with some interesting reading. 4 businesses dissolved since 2014.
What I like about HempWorx
Quite a few things I like about how HempWorx is conducting business and sitting on the sidelines and been objective I can see that clearly.
- All their products are claimed to be Organically Grown
More and more people are turning to organic foods to eradicate the chemicals (well most) that we find in everyday food products that are harmful to us.
HempWorx claim they grow all their industrial hemp plants organically and therefore won’t find any added chemicals.
- They take care of the Whole Process
From growing the plants, through to manufacturing and the delivery process.
- Income Disclosure
Many MLM’s are not prepared to disclose income due to what should be obvious to anyone looking in.
At HempWorx they don’t try to hide the fact that a massive portion of their distributors, do not stay around too long.
- All their products come with a 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee
According to the website, there is an empty bottle moneyback guarantee.
- Their skincare products are Lab Certified and Transparent
No animal testing with these products.
- There’s no GMO (Genetically Modified Organism)
- Product Certificates
You can find a section on their website that allows you to check out the products along with certificates.
They are distinguishable by a lot number which is used for traceability if there is a problem with the product.
I am guessing that the lot-number isn’t on the order form, and therefore you are only in possession of it when the product is delivered. As I haven’t ordered any products then I can’t check this out.
This means that you can’t check the certificate before you purchase but you can check a product with a different lot-number which is wrong.
- US Hemp authority stamp seal of approval
Getting your product recognized and approved by certain authorities goes a long way to identifying that the product can be trusted. Mind you looking at the certificate on their website tells me that as of this review it is out of date.
Law states that the level of THC cannot exceed 0.03% and HempWorx products either have no THC or below the required limit.
What I don’t like about HempWorx
Here are some of the pitfalls and pretty much what people are looking for.
- Products I find Expensive
Although I find their products expensive against what you can find on the highstreet, against other MLM companies they are quite competitive.
- They are not recognized by GMP(Good Manufacturing Practices)
With Health and Safety all the rage nowadays, complying to certain business practices should be something that HempWorx are looking at.
- Great products then where are the Great Reviews?
If the product is so good then why can’t I find an abundance of great reviews all over the internet? Don’t you find that strange?
- Better Business Bureau rating of “B-“. Not accredited!
- All MLM’s are a Hard Sell
I see many bad tactics applied by HempWorx distributors. That tells me a lack of experience and desperation.
- Difficult to find the right Sponsor
You are going to find this a difficult one unless you are experienced with MLM’s in which case this wouldn’t apply.
Too many members find themselves joining a sponsor who isn’t prepared to train and guide them, and whether this is because they are struggling themselves or they don’t have the experience or they don’t care. Could be a combination.
Is HempWorx a Worthy Business to get involved with?
In this Hempworx MLM opportunity, I can see lots of potential.
…unless you are prepared to get your head down and learn then they are only for affiliate marketers who have experience in this type of business, and yeah go for it especially if you have had success in the past.
I wouldn’t suggest any newcomer looking to earn a living online starting their journey in an MLM business, but that’s just my advice.
Is Hempworx a scam which you see many labelling them as, but as you can see everything is above board.
A really bad experience can really get to you and it will certainly put a dent in your confidence. This is coming from someone who has experience in several such businesses.
Of course, you could ignore my advice and take a chance, and you might be successful, but are you prepared to waste several years of trying?
Maybe you are a CBD user yourself in which case take advantage of the discounts but you can find cheaper products online that are as good.
I hope I have shown anybody new to making money online that Network Marketing is a hard sell, and remember around 50% and that’s a conservative estimate will have left before the first 12 months is up.
Start off on the right track…
Took me a few years jumping through hoops before I actually found out what was for me the correct way forward.
Affiliate Marketing for me is a far cry from an MLM business, you are fully in control and don’t have others to rely on like we’ve seen in a business, like HempWorx.
Not sure what I’m trying to tell you then check out a recent article I wrote which explains Affiliate Marketing in a very simple way here.
I wish I’d found this amazing training platform a few years ago because at Wealthy Affiliate they really do care and with an amazing community who are there to help you succeed in any way they can. Only one way to find out!
Not sure, then you can check out a review I wrote about Wealthy Affiliate here.
