Hempworx Review

There’s so much talk about Hemp these days, since its legalization in the majority of the states in the U.S., and many companies are taking advantage of this opportunity.

The first Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) company I came across that sells Hemp products was Kannaway, and many others, like Prime My Body and HempWorx, follow suit.

The founders of HempWorx, Josh and Jenna Zwagil, are the same founders of another MLM company called “My Daily Choice“.

So, if you are wondering why some Hempworx distributors are promoting products of My Daily Choice, you now know why.

The big question here is, “Is HempWorx a Scam?”

I see this question being asked so many times, and it all points to the relationship between HempWorx and the MLM structure that the company is running on.

In my opinion, I don’t think HempWorx or MLM is a scam, but there are things that you should know before purchasing the products or joining the business opportunity (which I will discuss in this review).

How I Fired My Boss and Work Full-Time From Home

In this HempWorx review, I am going to share everything you need to know about the products and the business opportunity so that you can make an informed decision.

Is HempWorx a scam?


Just because HempWorx is an MLM company, it doesn’t mean that it is a scam.

Many people have confused MLM with a Pyramid scheme because of its similarities, but this video will explain the differences:

You see, there is a clear distinction between an MLM company and a pyramid scheme.

Any MLM distributor has to follow a set of rules guided by the MLM companies which is in turn Governed by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

Distributors of an MLM company need to focus on promoting the products of the company, instead of the recruitment to the business opportunity.

Most compensation plans of MLM companies are geared towards rewarding distributors for their recruitment efforts more than the efforts for promoting the products.

That’s why distributors are more inclined to use unscrupulous methods to recruit new members than to focus on promoting the products.

And that raises a red flag for the authorities.

A legitimate MLM company, if managed poorly, will be indicted in cases relating to a pyramid scheme, see Herbalife.

For HempWorx, it is clearly stated in the affiliate agreement that:

So, if you ever encounter a distributor from HempWorx who only paints a rosy picture about your future if you join the business opportunity, run far away! And maybe report it to the Company Headquarters or the FTC.

Now that we know HempWorx is not a scam, let’s get right into the details…

What is CBD (Cannabidiol)?


Honestly, the more I try to understand about Hemp, Cannabis, and Marijuana, the more confused I get.

But, what I understand as a consumer is that there are more than 113 chemical compounds (or cannabinoids) found in a Cannabis plant (Marijuanna is the same plant as Cannabis).

Out of these chemical compounds (cannabinoids), the two main chemical compounds that scientist and researchers are interested in are the THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and the CBD (Cannabidiol).

THC gets you “High”, while CBD doesn’t. Both THC and CBD have its own health benefits, but because CBD doesn’t get you “High”, it is widely accepted.

Apologies if I didn’t explain it in a more professional way.

If you want a more professional explanation, you can watch this video:

So, to extract CBD, there will always be THC present.

In many states of the U.S., the legalized amount of THC that can be present in a CBD product is 0.3%.

That’s all I know about the jargon behind CBD, if you know more, please share it by leaving a comment below.

As a consumer, I am more interested in the benefits of the CBD…

Does CBD Work?

A HempWorx distributor comes up to you and tells you that she/he has a magic potion that will dramatically reduce your pain (back pain, neck pain, etc).

And then, she/he talks about the benefits of this magic potion:

  1. Anti-inflammatory
  2. Relieves Nausea
  3. Promote Cardiovascular Health
  4. Helps fight cancer
  5. Anxiety disorders
  6. Possibly treat seizures and other neurological disorders

So, as it appears that the magic potion is the CBD oil, and you are thinking to yourself, is it all true? Could CBD oil be so amazing?

Since its legalization, doctors and researchers are coming out to speak about CBD and its benefits:

One thing you have to keep in mind is that these CBD products are not FDA approved, but it doesn’t mean that they do not have medicinal properties.

It just means that the distributor of the CBD product cannot make claims that the products are intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

This is stated on the HempWorx website:

Hempworx FDA Disclosure

Now, not all CBD products work…

There are many CBD products out there that doesn’t contain much CBD, and they are called CBD products because they meet the minimum requirement of the state law.

So, before you buy a CBD product, it is important to do research on them.

What sets HempWorx CBD Oil Apart from its competitors?


HempWorx has definitely poised itself as a leader in the CBD industry.

Through its many third party lab tests conducted, they have proven to produce the purest form of the CBD.

You can see the lab test certificates through this page.

So, it definitely instills some confidence to the consumers to trust the HempWorx brand.

Also, looking at this comparison chart  prepared by cbdoilusers.com, you can see that the CBD Oil of HempWorx is reasonably priced.

It is also the cheapest as compared to other CBD Oil products of the other MLM companies.

HempWorx Price Point

Now, though the company is legit, and the HempWorx’s products seem to sell for itself, it doesn’t guarantee your success as a distributor of the company.

The HempWorx Business Opportunity – What you should know!


It sounds really convincing, it almost seems like this opportunity could be the chance for you to be financially free.

However, as much as I hate to bring you back down to earth, you must know that more than 95% of the distributors of an MLM company fail.

This is the true statistic across the entire MLM industry, including the Hemp industry.

This program has led me and thousands of people make a Life Changing income online. Find out how you can too!

And, the reasons for the failure has little to do with the company or its products.

Why 95% of the distributors fail in the business?

Reason #1: Not Enough Leads

When you join HempWorx, you will be asked to list 100 or more people in your social circle who can benefit from the HempWorx products or may be interested in the business opportunity.

And, because of the popularity of the development of CBD, let’s say that the sale conversion rate is at 30%, which means that every 10 people you met, 3 of them will buy a product from HempWorx.

I can’t give a higher conversion rate because many people just didn’t like the stigma of MLM.

So, if you meet a 100 people, 30 people will buy the products, and as we know, to become successful with the company, you need to recruit new distributors.

Out of the 30 people, if you are lucky enough, you could recruit 1 to 3 new distributors.

But, what happens after you have expanded your list of prospects?

What will you do then? Do you start cold calling? Do you start buying leads from unverified sources? Facebook Marketing, maybe?

Honestly, if you don’t have proper guidance and training, you will not know how to prosper in this business, which leads me to the next point.

Reason #2: Poor Guidance and Training

As the turnover rate of the distributors is extremely high, leaders or sponsors are more inclined to focus on new recruitment than to coach and guide existing distributors.

Coaching and training existing distributors takes a lot of time, and the efforts will be wasted if a distributor leaves the business, this is also one of the reasons leaders or sponsors are discouraged to groom existing distributors.

So, as a new joiner to the business, you have to do due diligence on your team leaders. I suggest mingling with the leaders and members of the team, and try to understand if your prospective team leaders will put your interest ahead of theirs.

Reason #3: Emotional barrier – I hate being a salesman

Because of the nature of this business opportunity, you will be forced to face a ton of rejection.

What’s worst is that you’ll have to face rejection from the people who are close to you, and most of the time, it will create friction in the relationship which will eventually fall apart.

This is one of the main factors that cause people to quit the business because they just can’t deal with the emotional stress.

If you are serious about making this business opportunity work, you are bound to sacrifice some relationships, and you have to deal with your emotional stress on a daily basis.

Reason #4: Bad Leaders Breed Bad Distributors

As the compensation plan compensates more for the recruiting efforts, many leaders and distributors resort to unscrupulous marketing tactics to recruit people into the business opportunity.

And, most of these strategies are taught to new distributors who joins the team, and the legacy continues.

You see, for a distributor to be compliant, they have to follow a set of rules, one of which is to focus on promoting the products rather than on the business opportunity (recruitment).

If an MLM company or its distributors are found to be using unscrupulous methods to recruit members, they can be seen as a pyramid scheme.

Beware not to join a team that focuses on recruitment (you’ll get a feel of it during your first Hempworx presentation with a distributor).

Reason #5: Wrong Mindset

Many aspiring distributors join the company thinking that the CBD oil is an easy sell, however, while CBD is well recognized for its health benefits, new distributors still find it difficult to sell.

The problem doesn’t lie with the company or the products, it lies with the distributor.

Selling is an art, and it comes through personal experience. A distributor may try selling the products once or twice, or maybe three times, and when they didn’t get a sale, they quit.

For a person who has zero knowledge and experience with sales, it will take months (if not years) to become a great salesperson.

It is through hard work and sheer determination to achieve success, unfortunately, most aspiring distributors do not have what it takes to become successful.

My Sincere Advice to You


If you have symptoms that CBD may be able to cure, then the obvious answer is to try the products.

If it works, great! But, if it doesn’t, you can send the products back to HempWorx within 30 days to get a full refund (less shipping cost).

You see, the first step to joining the business opportunity is to believe that the products work.

If you don’t believe in what you sell, how can you expect others to believe you, right?

However, having a positive experience with the products will have little to do with your success with the business opportunity.

Honestly, the road to success with HempWorx is long and tough, and not many will succeed. You need to have a certain characteristics (as I’ve described above) to succeed in this opportunity.

If you think that you have what it takes to be successful with Hempworx, I wish you all the best and I sincerely hope that you will succeed.

Now, what if this business opportunity is not for you, but you are still eager to learn how to make money from the comfort of your home, what then?

I’ve been in the make money online space for quite a while, and have reviewed hundreds of online business opportunities.

Quite frankly, finding a legitimate business opportunity is like finding a diamond in the rough.

I’ve been scammed many times, and that’s until I found Wealthy Affiliate.

Since then, my life has changed as you can see from this…

Hey Jack, I was considering being a distributor just to make some extra money. For example, getting the 25% discount on product and the rest would be profit for myself. But is it true that I won’t be able to do this without recruiting others?

    Jack Cao - Reply

    Hey Lynn,

    If you are intending to consistently buy CBD oil from Hempworx, then it may make sense to become a distributor and get the 25% discount.

    But, if you are intending to buy it just one time, then it doesn’t make sense because you’ll need to pay additional fees to become a distributor.

    There is no restriction for you to recruit, but if you want to truly earn from the compensation plan, then you’ll have to recruit. Does this answer your questions?

    Cheers!

This is a very informative article. Thank you for putting it all together. I am a Hempworx Affiliate. My upline is informative and Hempworx/MyDailyChoice customer service has been improving at a very steady space. Jenna and Josh Zwagil are very accessible, caring and committed. One thing not mentioned is that they each are Affiliates in the company as well. They actually experience the pay plan as all other Affiliates do. So proud to be a part of their great team and representing the life changing products!

Come on man, you are taking money out of the pockets of the lower and middle class. You are taking advantage of those who are searching for guidance. What happens when you do this? You screw everyone. We need these people to create legit businesses that will create jobs and put money back into the economy.

Are you a narcissist that lacks empathy? Did you get screwed over, so now you started trying to screw others? I’m genuinely curious.

The very definition of an MLM is a scam. Every “business in a box” and “generate income by inviting others to sign up” is a scam.

No you are not a real business owner if you sign up. Having a real business means signed paper work, filing papers with the city, and having ownership to a unique business name. You are given an EIN, and pay quarterly taxes with the state.

Trainers aren’t a real thing. If you want to learn about sales and business, take classes, read articles from real professionals. These trainers are there only to keep you from leaving the company. If you leave, they get less money.

The only people who make money from these are the ones at the top, the ones who started.

If you are interested in these businesses in a box, please take that money and take some community college classes. You will not regret it.

If you want people to take you seriously, build a business from scratch. MLMs try to make it seem easy to draw you in. A real business takes hard work and dedication. Do research, write a business plan, take careful details of your financials. DONT TRY TO SELL JUNK TO YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY.

Heres a quick senario.
You buy the products to sell
You get set up with a trainer, and they are super friendly and awesome!
Your family and friends start to become distant, because all you want to do is make sales
You don’t make the money you thought you would
The trainer says things to inspire you
You continue to not make sales, while you lose friends, and alienate your family.

This sounds fun to you?
And don’t you dare say “well you had a bad trainer, or maybe its not for you!”
Nah dude, the business is set up that way. Its designed to make you believe its my fault for failing.

Here is my experience as a former affiliate of Hempworx. Product was good but customer support is terrible! My first affiliate I signed up was put under someone she didn’t know that issue took months to resolve and I was never paid commissions for her sign up either. Then a month into signing shipments to Canada stop and now told they are not legal here?! Was told opposite when joining. Now they want us to get prescription cards to be able to order again with a Canadian company?? Then owner Jenna makes the comment on her Facebook page that ‘We don’t need Canada’ well if that’s the case why would we support an American company like this! That was the last straw for me! This is not how an owner should talk nor believe so safe your time $ and energy and look for a Canadian brand to buy.

    Hey Barbara,

    Thanks for sharing your experience with Hempworx here.

    I hope other HempWorx distributors can jump in to explain?

Hello i joined as an associate of a different company and was wondering about hempworx? is this a pyramid scam scheme?

    Jack Cao - Reply

    This is not a pyramid scheme, but that depends on how a person is being sold to the opportunity. A company must not focus on selling the “idea of getting rich”, but they should focus on selling the products.

    When a happy customer wants to learn more about the opportunity, the distribution can then recruit the customer. This is how it should be.

    But, when a group of distributors focused mainly on the recruitment instead of selling the products, this could possible be dealt with as a pyramid scheme.

    I hope this clears your doubt.

    Feel free to ask me any other questions.

    Cheers!

Hi Jack thanks for the advice that was really well written! Can you expand a little on feeling out the leaders (upline who recruited you) and how to tell if they have your best interest in mind? And also since you can’t change your upline Is there anything you can do to or keep an eye on to make sure they don’t take advantage or hurt your business? Thanks!!

    Jack Cao - Reply

    Hi Alex,

    The first step I would do is to talk to other members of the group who are at the same level as you (but they have been there much longer than you).

    Try to understand from them how they are being coached, what is their marketing approach, who are their target audience, and do they focus heavily on recruitment.

    Also, think about how you were approached and what made you decide to join the business. If it is pressured tactic that made you join the business, most likely, the team that you are joining is not a good one.

    The upline can’t really hut you, unless they do not provide the support you need, or they are simply trying to prospect YOUR customers. So, make sure that your sponsors do not have your customers’ contact details.

    In terms of the support, it is really subjective, and can’t be answered until you are well into the business.

    I hope this helps Alex!

    Feel free to ask me anything else, I’ll be more than happy to help.

    Cheers!

If I decide to get into this business, does Hempworx dropship or do I need to order a ton of inventory to sell to my customers? It was a bit unclear. I understand any products I wish to try out myself I would have to purchase, but to get the business up and running is what I am unsure of. Thanks in advance!

    Jack Cao - Reply

    There’s no requirement to keep an inventory. You will be given a personal website when you join the business, and when someone buys a product through your website, the company will take care of the shipping for you. Like you said, “Dropship”.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers!

Hey Jack
I just watched about Hemporx and the way Josh Zwagil was telling about how you make Money with them it sounds like a Pyramid to me (Maybe I missed something) because he was talking about recruiting more than selling the products. Sorry if I’m wrong!
Thanks
Charles

    The first step to joining any MLM business, cutting out all the fluff, is to try the products.

    If the products work for you, then you’ll have a good reason to join the business, but if it doesn’t, then what’s the point of promoting a product that you don’t believe in, right?

    If you think in this angle, you’ll have your answer to whether or not join the business.

    Cheers!

A couple errors. The allowable THC threshold is not 3%. It is .3%. And it is mistakenly believed that the .3% applies to the finished product. The number actually applies to the dry weight propotion of the hemp plant itself. After extraction and concentration might be higher or lower.

You also stated that extraction always yields some THC. Not true. Many CO2 extractors can and do leave the THC out.

    Hi Gary,

    Thanks for your expert view on Hemp!

    Obviously, I am not an expert on Hemp, I was studying Hemp for a short time, and thanks for sharing this knowledge. Will definitely update this review with the accurate info.

    Thanks once again!
