What is HempWorx cbd oil? [Great MLM or NOT? CHECK here FIRST before JOINING!!!]

What is HempWorx cbd oil - An MLM company selling Hemp derived CBD oil productsSo 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?

The HempWorx business was founded in 2017 and was the initial idea of Jenny Zwagil, the wife of Josh and pretty much at the start of the CBD Oil revolution in the US which started in 2018.

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…

    1. CBD Tinctures
    2. CBD Topicals
    3. CBD Softgels
    4. CBD Pet Products
    5. CBD Bath Bombs
    6. CBD Coffee
    7. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

Paid advertising

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…

  1. Facebook Ads
  2. Google Adwords
  3. 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.

SEO

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 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.

  1. 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.

  1. They take care of the Whole Process

From growing the plants, through to manufacturing and the delivery process.

  1. 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.

  1. All their products come with a 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee

According to the website, there is an empty bottle moneyback guarantee.

  1. Their skincare products are Lab Certified and Transparent

No animal testing with these products.

  1. There’s no GMO (Genetically Modified Organism)
  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. Products are safe

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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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?

  1. Better Business Bureau rating of “B-“. Not accredited!
  1. 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.

  1. 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.

But…

…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.

But…

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!

100% FREE and NO CREDIT CARD asked for! What have you got to lose?

Hey Guys and Gals, Great to meet you and I hope you enjoyed this post. I have to be honest with you, my journey into making money online started with several MLMs and they just didn’t do it for me. In fact, my experiences were so bad I nearly decided to call it a day. That was until I came across affiliate marketing and realized this was where I should have been in the first place. NO inventory, No recruiting, No fees, No cold calling, and this can be done anywhere in the world. All I had to do was find out what 4.5 billion were searching in Google for and with over 7 billion daily searches in Google shouldn’t be too much of a problem.

  1. This article is fantastic! It’s so in-depth. It feels like there is zero bias, as you look at this company from every angle. I had no idea about all the uses of CBD either. You used a lot of quality information to get your point across.
    I really appreciate all the points you made and how you offered an alternative! How long have you been a member with Wealthy Affiliate?
    Have you seen success since starting there?

    1. Hey Koda, thank you for those kind words and glad you liked the review.

      I try to be impartial and that hopefully comes across, and for anyone thinking of joining any MLM then I hope this review will help them decide, one way or the other.

      Spent sometime involved in Network Marketing and they weren’t good times.

      Suffice to say Wealthy Affiliate came at the right time.

      Wealthy Affiliate is by far the best affiliate marketing training platform I have come across online, and if you are thinking of joining, you are sure to not find anywhere that comes close, and the community just go beyond the call of duty.

      Like any business, they take time to build, especially a website because there’s a lot of research and content to write.

      Thanks for your support

      1. Just like you, I am not a fan of MLMs. This is a great review of HempWorx. I really enjoyed how you explained the benefits of CBD Oil. I heard many times that CBD oil is very good for many different things but reading this post made me understand it. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us. One question, my husband has been diagnosed with ALS, do you think this could benefit him?

        1. Carole, thanks for your kind words and glad it helped to explain a few things.

          Everybody will have heard about CBD Oil and if they haven’t they certainly will in the foreseeable future.

          For anybody looking for an alternative to medicine how it works for each individual will all depend on the quality. Expensive doesn’t always mean you are going to get a great product.

          What you will notice is that MLM businesses operating in this space are expensive compared to our local retail outlets, and by a substantial margin too.

          Many reports that the strength isn’t strong enough and whether your husband can benefit I wouldn’t like to say. This is something you will have to research further but at the end of the day CBD is not a cure, but it may lessen the pain.

          There are alternative modalities such as Reiki of which I am a Reiki Master. I would certainly check this out!

          Thanks for your comment and support

    1. Hey Donat, just trying to point out the facts for anyone wanting to learn how to make money online.

      For many (like me also) found out the hard way and ventured into MLMs.

      Not for the faint-hearted and certainly not for anyone new looking to earn a living online.

      I would always advise anyone new to find some good training and learn affiliate marketing as opposed to Network Marketing. Thank you for your comment.

  2. wow I’ve never heard of this company before. Thanks for your information! Really helps me to know more about this company!

    1. I forgot to say, I’m kinda curious are you doing network marketing through online (such as by using affiliate marketing skills and email marketing)? I’ve done network marketing before and I’m still trying to figure out how to 100% transform traditional marketing into online business. Thanks!

      1. Katherine, no, I am not part of any MLM business.

        There are not for me after some bad experiences but I think I mention this in the review. You can make “some” money but the real money is made by the top 1-3 per cent.

        The facts are well documented as you can see in thisHempWorx income disclosure. They state that 65% of affiliates leave after the first 12 months.

        If you are really wanting to learn just how to make money online, then, in my opinion, affiliate marketing is the route you should take Thanks for your support.

    2. Hey Katherine,

      Just one of many MLM companies that were founded to take advantage of the CBD Oil market, and because of this rapid growth, you are going to find many companies operating in that same space, selling products that in many cases lack the CBD strength or worse still is totally defunct of any. Thanks for the comments

  3. Hi Mick,

    This is a very interesting article. I am not a fan of MLM’s as I have tried a few in the past and they were all scams. I am not going to mention their names but they have all been closed down now because they were scamming people. So I have vowed to never join one ever again.

    This opportunity might be different because it is selling products that improve people’s health. So they may be set up in a way that is not scamming people. But, I am not going to take this opportunity. You have given some great info, and it’s a bit expensive for me anyway.

    You will definitely benefit many people to make an informed decision though. So keep up the amazing work on your site.

    All the best,

    Tom

    1. Hey Tom, I think most people coming into the “make money online” space as had a bad experience with an MLM business at some point.

      The reason they have such a bad rep is down to some businesses operating in this manner and hiding behind a product, and only a matter of time before certain authorities investigate and eventually close them down.

      At the end of the day, they can have the best product on the planet and what may seem like a great payment plan, but the way they operate are all the same.

      Anyway, thanks for the comment.

  4. Great article my friend, I never knew anything about the plant or the MLM product. I appreciate your very well done review on this product as well the MLM company. I will be staying away from this company for sure. Looking forward to your next article thanks again.

    1. Hey Rick, glad you enjoyed it. Be rest assured you will now be hearing a lot about CBD Oil since this product is really taking off.

      MLM’s can be very lucrative for some but for someone new coming into the make money niche, I wouldn’t advise it.

      The training will be very basic and that’s if you get any at all.

      Thanks for commenting.

  5. Thanks for the insightful article! It’s a crowded field in the MLM world and now hemp products, so always good to add to my knowledge and decision making with someone who has some experience with it!

    1. Right there, and there is money to be made if you know what you are doing, but with around 50% leaving in the first 12 months then that should say it all.

      Thanks for your comment

  6. Great stuff here Mick!! Well presented and easy to read plus totally interesting material that people looking for products should know about. Very unbiased and to the point. Thanks for posting this Mick!!

  7. Thank you so much for having shared such a well put review on what is HempWorx for I needed to find a a product that a friend suffering from PTSD helps him have a better nights sleep!

    1. Jose, I am a firm believer in not taking any drugs whatsoever, but I know some don’t have that luxury. CBD Oil can help in some cases but you will also find your fair share of reviews that say the total opposite.

      There are so many products out there with everyone getting in on the act, you have to be careful because many of the products aren’t what they say they are. We have found that here in the UK where random tests are done with as much as 40% of the products defunct in some way. Either not as described on the label and worse still no CBD Oil at all. Thanks for the comment

  8. Great article Mick – covers all the bases. Glad you share my thoughts on MLM. Making money on-line is not as easy as most think. Good to get some perspectives.
    On the other hand – cbd products have become a big success because they work to alleviate pain and stress. There’s a world of new supplements that are being scientifically tweaked beyond their raw states to help boost both the body and the mind.
    Cheers
    David

    1. Hey David, thanks for your input and I guess you are talking about “Smart Drugs” where they have reported findings of increased brain power. Quite frankly I wouldn’t go anywhere near them in fact and drugs att all. Strange world we are living in with everything heading towards AI. Thanks for your comment.
