Whether you like it or not, weed is a $1 billion industry. It's not just about smoking it. The flowers and seeds are used for organic body care, health foods, and other nutraceuticals. So there are companies such as Hempworx earning money by selling these hemp based products. You probably know this already and it's why you have searched through several Hempworx reviews.
But, can you really make money selling their products? Let's dive into this review and see if they are really worth your time and money.
What is HempWorx?
Hempworx.com was founded in 2014 by Josh and Jenna Zwagil. They run an MLM company that sells hemp based supplements, oils and operate within the CBD niche. Their products are available in all 50 states across the U.S.
What Products Does HempWorx Provide?
They sell a wide variety of hemp and CBD products which they allege can relieve pain, renew stem cells, and improve your overall health.
Some of their notable products include:
- Hemp Drops – pure CBD oil for pain relief
- CBD Cream – anti-aging cream to reduce wrinkles and lines
- Hempworx for pets – improves a pet's immune system
- Revive Cream – CBD collagen cream to moisturize the skin
- Hempworx Relief – cream for relaxing the muscles
HempWorx Commission Plan
Like most MLMS Hempworx has a complex commission plan. We'll do our best to explain it in plain English. But basically there are various ways a Hempworx Distributor can earn money. Commissions are earned according to how much Business Volume (BV) you have earned.
Retail Customer Commissions
This commission is paid weekly. Distributors get products at wholesale pricing which is up to 25% off. So at this level when you sell a product, you will earn the difference between the wholesale price and retail price. To qualify, distributors must purchase one of the starter packs and earn 40 BV points.
Jump Start Bonuses
This commission is paid weekly and goes 10 levels deep. Again, there is a potential payout of 85% commission on Business Volume (BV). To qualify you need to buy a starter pack and get at least 40 BV per month.
Binary Team Commissions
This commission is paid monthly. Distributors can earn up to 20% commission. To qualify, distributors must get at least 40 BV in personal sales and 300 BV in your pay leg.
If the complicated MLM compensation plans confuse you, you're not alone. Fortunately, there are businesses such as Wealthy Affiliate which have a straightforward commission structure that doesn't require a multiple page compensation plan to understand.
How Much Does It Cost To be An Hempworx Distributor?
At the time of writing this review, it will cost you an up-front fee of $20 to become an HempWorx distributor. In addition, you will be required to buy a product package. Depending on which product line you want to promote, the packages can range anywhere from $59 and go up to $599.
If you don't like the idea of investing any money to make money, you may want to consider a free site like SurveyJunkie.com which allow you to make money online without spending a dime.
How Much Money Can You Make with HempWorx?
Hempworx states they have one of the most aggressive affiliate programs with up to an 85% commission payout. Depending on your rank, they allege you can earn from $500 up to $1 million per month.
Okay, here's the section of the review you have all been waiting for, the complaints! So let's have a look at some of the red flags that we have uncovered and see if this MLM is really worth your time and money.
Misleading Income Representation
They allege you can earn up to seven figures per month depending on your rank. But if you look on page 12 of their terms and conditions, they say that any amounts reflected on their website is for demonstration purposes only and does not mean anything in terms of earning commissions. Seems like they are throwing these huge numbers around to try and get you to join.
No BBB listing
For those of you who live and die by the Better Business Bureau ratings, you won't be happy to know that they don't even have a BBB listing at the time of this review.
Like with many MLMs, they normally charge higher for products which you can find at a cheaper price somewhere else. Hempworx is no different. For instance, a 500 mg bottle of hemp oil will cost $69.99, excluding shipping. Customers can just buy this directly from Amazon.com which will be a lot less in terms of cost. Overpriced products are going to make selling very difficult for the distributors.
Odds are not in your favor
They claim that teams can allegedly earn commissions of up to $1 million per month. Sounds great doesn't it? What they don't tell you is that you have to recruit a lot of distributors under you to make any decent money. There is a lot of direct selling involved and quite honestly, it's not worth your time.
If the thought of recruiting people sounds too involved and time-consuming, you might want to consider Wealthy Affiliate which allows you to build a business without having to recruit people. If you're just looking to make extra income, you might also want to look at another site like SurveyJunkie.com. They also don't require you to recruit people to make money.
So the $20 joining fee is not too bad. But where they make their money is from the Builder Packs that you have to purchase if you want to make commissions. These packs start at around $60 and go up to $600 at the time of this review. For some people start up costs are a deal breaker. Not everyone understands that any business requires an initial investment. But companies like Wealthy Affiliate provide you with a free option to get started with your business. So it may be something to consider.
Is There A Better Alternative to HempWorx?
Hempworx is not as bad as some MLMs out there but there is a lot of things wrong with this business model as pointed out in the complaints section.
If there is anything that made you feel uncomfortable, there are other options out there that you can try. Sites like SurveyJunkie.com & Wealthy Affiliate are alternatives worth trying if you're looking to make income.
Is Hempworx Legit or Not?
Hempworx is not a scam, they have been around for a few years but that doesn't mean I would recommend them. Why? As with most MLMs, you have to recruit a lot of people in your downline if you want to make any decent money. There is too much of an emphasis on direct selling and recruiting.
Given the high prices of the products, it's going to make it harder to sell. It's easier to sell products at prices that people are accustomed to. So it may not be a great option for everyone. Although there obviously some small numbers of people that do well with this business model.
But I find that it's easier to promote products from companies people already know and trust like Amazon. Fortunately, My Best Work At Home Recommendation can teach you how to make money with companies like Amazon and others. And the great thing, you can try it for FREE before making any investment in this business. So you may want to consider this option.
So, there you have my review of Hempworx. Please share your experience or comments below.
Until next time

Yeah there a money back guarantee but you have to send your whole order back in order to get the money back. So please be careful. Also it didn’t do anything for me. It would help me go to sleep but I would have to take alot. I have now found a better product and I know who is making it and whats being put in it
Thank for the review it has helped me dig deeper and make an informed decision
You’re welcome Francis
I am knee-deep in the hemp industry, so know a lot more about the inner workings of the canna craze than the average Joe. Do you Hempworx affiliates know your source for CBD oil? No, it’s not Hempworx. It is not some magic strain grown and processed just for Hempworx. It is a Kentucky mega-company that white label bottles for hundreds of companies…and they are all getting the exact same CBD oil you are, then putting their own labels on it. So, to say Hempworx is the purest, best, blah, blah, is laughable! Your MLM has you brainwashed, and has invested in promotional materials, packaging, and advertising to set themselves apart from the others when their supply is the exact same thing of hundreds of others. I know the inner workings of this company, and I know the inner workings of the company who supplies their CBD oil and other products. Go ahead and believe that your products are superior, as I’m sure the hundreds of other companies getting the exact same CBD oil from the same supplier think the same thing. If you like it, use it, if you want to sell it, sell it. But, for the love of canna, actually know the truth about your product, and quit believing every scheme-monger who promises you riches while becoming rich off your hopes and dreams. I could give you a list of hundreds of CBD oils that come from the same supplier as Hempworx, and none of them use pyramid schemes, mind-boggling pay structures, sketchy sales tactics, or rigid requirements to sell their (same as Hempworx) product. If you are looking to get rich, the chances for failure in depending on an MLM to do it far, far outweigh any modicum of success. Have a slow month with Hempworx or fail to buy your share of product, and watch what happens to everything you’ve worked for up to that point. Its business model is designed to make you hustle, and the pay structure is designed to confuse you. Failure is just one slow month away.
A hemp farmer immersed in the industry
I appreciate the unique perspective. It should be interesting to see how one of their reps will respond. In my experience some MLM reps just resort to name calling or trying attack one’s credibility instead of addressing the actual facts or complaints mentioned. So I wonder if that’s what we’ll see once their reps read your comment.
Either way, it’s great to have all these different perspectives available for people to read so they can make an informed decision for themselves.
Do you now is Kentucky’s Best Hemp out of Lewisville Kentucky is part of this big Kentucky manufacturing?
wow everyone needs to chill here. Ive just become an affialte to hempworx because I used the products & it pretty much cleared up my arthritis……..so I decided to affiliate as Im gonna buy the product anyway. Ive put the website link to sell on to my coffee shop website, and having started offering CBD coffee which is selling well.
The company do not make you set up a automated order, its the persons individual choice, and the company also do not say its the best product out there ……….so dont get why peeps are saying that. but if it works for someone personally thats a good thing no? and obvs you have to work hard at something if you want to succeed, and buy products yourself because how else can you recommend it to other people to sell.
yes its not the perfect company, but what company or business is……….but if you believe in the product (which i do) its not hard to sell ……….it will sell its self to the right people anyway………plus I am a qualified NLP life coach so it gives me a chance to use those skills & help others too.
Each to their own no? like anything in life 🙂
I have been an affiliate for 8 months on Hempworx, and I’ve never made any money. I have watched all their videos, but I was never told what to say. People brag about how much money they make but the Joe blow who becomes their affiliates are left out in the cold. Their products are too expensive. I suppose they have a high overhead. If you’re just starting out, dont believe the hype congratulations to the big wigs
Thanks for sharing your experience Wendy. But I’m sure their reps will blame you for why you didn’t achieve any success.
That said making any business successful can take a long time either way. But I find it’s a lot easier to succeed when you’re promoting products that people already know and trust. But to each their own.
Thanks again for sharing.
Get facts straight dude. There is no alleged million a month. Since they began the full roll out of the hemp products line two years ago, the company went from $7M in 2017 to $100M in 2018. If you down load the Business for Home app (BFH), you will see that one of the company’s affiliates is already ranked #2 in earnings of all Home businesses in their directory with an income of $1M plus per month. I personally know a half dozen earning in excess of $40K a month (being in the company for less than two years). I do think it is pretty slick how you are using this approach to discourage people from getting in to this company, while promoting your own affiliate enterprise. Slick…. As an affiliate marketer and someone who has lived comfortably and in style from my efforts in MLM, I can only smile at your ignorance and backwards way of promoting your own slick willy.
It’s always the MLM reps that get mad at giving people other options to consider. And if I was being “slick” I would just totally bash your company and say it was a total scam which I didn’t.
I also wouldn’t approve any comments that have an opposing viewpoint but yet your comment is visible.
How some of you reps have responded says more about you than it does me. And fortunately people can see this for themselves.
But feel free to keep attacking the guy that has helped thousands of people make money online and avoid scams for over a decade. It’s definitely going to help get you more sign ups. I wish you continued success. Toodles.
I didn’t see this specific brand on Amazon.
Hempworx is not sold at Amazon and it’s only thru their affiliates. Amazon do not sell CBD and the products sold in Amazon are hemp oil only. They are not the same between CBD and Hemp oil. This article provided false info regarding the Hempworx products. You can do your own research but do not fall into this scam that tried to click on the link to participate their own business sites.
I love how reps love to call articles like this false because it doesn’t fit their narrative and gives people other options.
You see Eddy with a y you have stated all of the issues with the company, the only responses from you are negative as all hell. “I love how reps love to call articles like this false because it doesn’t fit their narrative and gives people other options”, OK SO IF THEY SAY THAT YOUR ARTICLE IS FALSE THEN BE THE BIGGER PERSON AND PROVE TO ALL OF US READING YOUR BASH OF HEMPWORX JUST TO PUT YOUR BUSINESS OUT THERE THAT ALL THAT YOU HAVE SAID ABOVE ARE ALL TRUE FACTS AND YOU AREN’T JUST TRYING TO IMPROVE YOUR INCOME BY BASHING ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS!
Really what I am saying is PROVE IT.
Oh here we go again. No one is bashing this company. Bashing it would mean I called it a scam and say everyone should avoid it. I haven’t done any of that. I’ve merely provided the good and bad points about the company. Bashing it would mean I wouldn’t allow any of your counter comments to see the light of day on my blog.
It just seems like reps just want me to say their company is perfect and it’s the best and there is no bad points. And I shouldn’t give people other options for them to consider. Because apparently your company is the only option they should look into.
But if you think attacking the guy that has been making money by helping people avoid scams and make money online for over a decade is helping your narrative. By all means, carry on.
As I read all the comments so much misinformation. This site is the exact reason people don’t trust MLM because even the moderator is antagonisticNot sure if the people commenting believe what they are saying, work for another MLM company, or simply have nothing else to do but spread falsehoods. Any one that wants to challenge why I make this statement, feel free to contact me so I can provide you with facts. My guess is most don’t want to know the facts so I won’t hold my breath waiting for replies..
MLMS have a bad reputation on their own because of their products and the recruiting practices of the reps that just want to paint a positive picture of their company. The reason I’ve been around the make money industry for years as a trusted source is because I provide the positive and bad points about a company.
The only folks that seem to mind are the reps of said company who just want to tell a narrative that paints a picture that everything is perfect and if you don’t join said MLM, you’re lazy or whatever other name calling happens.
That said things change all the time with companies. Policies they may had in place when a review was written can change. And if they do, I’m more than happy to update my information. But it says more about the reps when they try to discredit someone that has been helping people make money and avoid scams for over a decade.
Instead of actually providing counter information in a respectful way or correcting misinformation, some reps go on the defensive. This blog allows for comments for a reason. So you have the opportunity to share a counter point. But you’re the one that loses credibility when you use the platform to attack rather than inform. Your prospects see this and it helps tells them about the rep or company.
I fell for this because a friend was selling this on facebook. I normally know better than to fall for this stuff but was desperate for back pain relief, anxiety and sleep. I wasted a lot of money. I feel so stupid that I fell for it.
Don’t feel stupid. These MLMs often training their reps to prospect their friends and family on social media. So it’s not your fault. Clearly this product didn’t work for you and that’s fine. What’s not fine is when their reps make it seem like it will work for everyone and it’s the best thing since sliced bread.
I found this financial site that dug down into the HempWorx compensation plan design and pretty much shows that unless an affiliate manages to recruit and keep many affiliates under them they simply will not make much money. The thing is, it is designed to make money for the company, and that part is working great! The affiliates have to pay for products to keep their points up and if their points fall they won’t make money. So, if those individuals take the amount they supposedly “earned” from sales, and then subtract out the amount they had to pay for their own products to keep their points up, they really barely made anything at all. Plus, they convinced countless friends and family to join them in this mire. Of course, the few who are big sales/marketers who place income over relationships will probably do better. If people are willing to lose relationships over profit though, they aren’t really your friends anyway.
A friend, who is an affiliate, gave me a bottle of the HempWorx 500mg and I used it for over a month without noticing any differences. I decided to try the 750mg 1 oz. of full spectrum oil to see if it helped at all, so purchased that bottle for $90 plus shipping. The only benefit I noticed was that maybe I was sleeping better. I had never researched/compared any of the other CBD brands so felt I should do so before ordering any more. By this time no less than a dozen of my close friends had become affiliates for HempWorx. They literally flood Facebook promoting “their” business and touting how this brand is THE BEST, MOST PURE, etc… of ALL the CBD on the market.
So I started reading a variety of blogs dedicated to CBD use. Also searched organizations who gave unbiased reviews on quality, price, etc… of CBD oils on the market. After extensive researching, I decided to try Lazarus full spectrum CBD 3000mg for 2 ounces at $110 a bottle with free shipping. Compare to the HempWorx 750 1 oz. bottle, the Lazarus would be twice the strength, with 1,500mg for only $55 per ounce. It is so much better and more affordable than the HempWorx. PLUS Lazarus offers 60% discount to all veterans, disabled individuals, and low income (with documentation to prove, of course).
What frustrated me about HempWorx is how they claim they have “the purest” CBD oil, which is simply not true. Their oil may be more pure than some other competitors, but it is not true that it is “more pure” than ALL others, which is what they imply. Any time an individual or company makes claims that exaggerate themselves without ability to back that claim is instantly going to raise my BS detectors. I also do not like their business model of having so many people selling their product so it is in your face no matter which way you turn. When you create an environment where people are making money off recruiting other people, and so on and so on, and those selling it haven’t even researched other brands but will sure put down every other one as inferior, that is a problem for me. When I told those affiliates that I was getting twice the strength for so much less, they claimed that our bodies cannot absorb that much so there’s no reason to purchase higher strength than what HempWorx has available. I pointed out that just because Lazarus has higher strength does not necessarily mean I have to take that much at a time, it could mean I am able to use less product for a full dose and have my supply last that much longer. When a business has their representatives so brainwashed that they cannot think for themselves about something like this, that is really a problem! Anyway, thank you so much for your review of the business model. It is certainly not something I would be interested in.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts and experience. I agree that some of these MLM reps and tactics sound like a cult. They make these grandiose claims and then try to tear down anyone that has a different opinion or present other options for people to consider. Some reps don’t act like this. So I won’t say they all do that. But I can totally appreciate what you have shared here about your observations.
They’re not actually overpriced for their products. Their CBD oil is the purest you can find on the market. It’s not a question of brand, but quality. Theirs is definitely higher quality than almost anything else you can get. And no, I’m not an affiliate or distributor or whatever. Just saying, their prices are appropriate for their superior products.
Pricing is subjective. The customer will determine if its over priced or not. You may not think it is but others may. So it’s all subjective.
Amy, can you provide any kind of stats that proves the claim that Hempworx has “the purest” of all CBD oils in existence? I sincerely doubt this is true, and if it is not true, then they should not state that it is. They could say their oils are among the purest, which might be true. Their oils are probably more pure than some, as pure as some others, and less pure than others. When an organization makes grandiose claims about their product over others without any proof, I will back away from their product so fast!
Agreed. Just keep in mind a lot of times the reps make these hyped up claims and don’t have the permission of the parent company. That’s why everyone should always do their own research and not just depend on reps that may be sipping the company koolaid.
That is not true.. Most manufacturers in the industry distill their oils the same way and the best brands actually will use coconut oil vs hemp oil. My products are as good if not better and my 750mg ISO sells for only $38.00 vs $89. Same if not better qlty and way better price and I offer Vets discounts and donate to the wounded warrior project. Hempworx has so many dishonest sales reps, i see the BS all over FB. They don’t even ask about what medications you are on before selling you a product. You need to be asking these questions or someone will be harmed some day.
Thanks for chiming in. Unfortunately some MLM reps will say and do anything to promote their company or product. And if you try to point out some of the downsides or alternatives they go on the defensive. They’ll resort to name calling or discrediting the source. I’ve seen it play out many times over the year. But not all MLM reps act like this.
Colleen Bullis, what is the brand that you sell? I like that it helps veterans too.
My biggest issue is how they say it’s the best product on the market. I’ve tried it and it’s most certainly not. Then when it doesn’t work they say it needs to build up in your system. Funny because I’ve used Charlotte’s Web and Lazarus and they both worked with the first dose and are far superior in quality.
Hi, I jut signed up to be an affiliate a little over a month ago. I chose the monthly autoship like I was supposed to which was supposed to take out $78 for a bottle of oil once every month. They charged me $78 on the 1st and sent the bottle, exactly what was supposed to happen. That was about 2 weeks ago, but this morning when we check the bank account, it shows a new Hempworx charge for $78 again. I get on the Hempworx site and go to look at the orders, and sure enough they show the order from the 1st and a new order for the 17th. Its only been 2 weeks!!! I was only supposed to be charged once a month not twice a month. I don’t know what is going on but I’m not recommending them to anyone else.
Hi Everyone, I’m an affiliate with Hempworx. I signed up with Josh Lacy about a year and a half ago. Josh Lacy’s upline is Jenna Zwagil (Jenna is part owner of Hempworx).
I’ll be honest about what I think about the company, the product, and the hussle.
First I think the company is pretty top notch when comparing to other Hemp / CBD affiliate marketing companies. Jenna has done tons of company mentoring through facebook lives and a 12 part series called Escape your matrix where she interviews the top 12 earners in Hempworx and they tell their story. I consider Josh and Jenna pretty down to earth people.
I don’t think the product is overpriced unless you want to compare gas station CBD then yes you get what you pay for. If you don’t like any of they’re products you get a 60-day money guarantee which is hard to find with CBD products anywhere.
Hempworx has a free sample pack which contains CBD oil, relief CBD pain cream, and revive and renew which are CBD facial anti-aging creams. You just have to pay shipping which is $11.95.
The hussle part is up to you. With any business, you have to put in a lot of energy which is normal. You may not see results with people signing up or continuing on with the company right away but try not to let that deter you.
I’ve signed up a few customers and affiliates here and there but then I wasn’t putting in a lot of effort either. I started doing facebook lives and tried my hand at attraction marketing but I decided after doing at least 20 lives I wasn’t getting the results I would like. So I started a website which I’m currently working on how to rank on google to attract people to sign up with me or purchase products from me. Another cool thing about the company is Hempworx won’t let someone order product from Hempworx unless they have an affiliate link.
But now I’m putting in as much energy as I can into my website that I started not too long ago and I know I will get results. Hell, that’s why I’m commenting on this article, haha.
I hope everyone found my 2 cents informational. I tried to be as unbiased as possible.
Thanks for sharing your experience.
It’s smart that you do start your own site. That’s one of the biggest issues with people that do MLMs. They depend on social media and their initial people they know to make sales. Whereas if you have a site and you learn how to optimize it and add content, you can have people come to you rather than chasing after folks.
And the good thing about having your own site is that you’re not limited to just promoting one company. Unfortunately MLMs come and go all the time. So if one does fail, you still own your site and can promote other options which you should do anyway. So you’re approaching this smart.
Thanks for the compliment on my website. I appreciate it! Do you know anyone that has gone my route with making a website and ranking it to sign up customers and affiliates? If so how did that go for them?
Thanks in advance for the information. I appreciate your time and energy! 🙂
You’re welcome. But I haven’t actually visited your site. I was just agreeing that it was the smart way to pursue this MLM or any other.
The concept of having a website and promoting any affiliate or MLM program has been proven for years. The reason you found this site is proof of that. But I had the proper training on how to create content that is found in Google. People are under the misconception that just create a website will magically get them traffic to it. But no there is a science to it. And that’s why I promote my top recommendation here to teach people how to build a site and get traffic and even work with companies like Amazon.
I’ve been thinking about joining. The upfront costs are a bit higher than I would have hoped for, but it is a business. What is moving me to join, is that my chiropractor sells the products and is not in the MLM portion of the program. He buys @ wholesale. I asked why they went with this product, they responded back, “from their research it is the best CBD product out there.” This chiropractor only sells a handful of supplemental products, so I’m going to believe him at his word, especially, when he’s not trying to recruit people, but, is only concerned with their health and well being.
“Customers can just buy this directly from Amazon.com which will be a lot less in terms of cost.”
As far as I can find out you cannot order CBD on amazon It is against their Terms and policy to sell controlled substances on amazon is “hemp oil” and doesn’t have CBD in it.
I have no idea what hempworx is selling but I wanted to make sure people knew Amazon doesn’t allow CBD products to be sold on their site.
Terrible company. Total scam. Products are good but over priced. I was an affiliate and you have to pay a minimum of $200 every month to even start getting anything in commissions. Upline is very high pressure and pushy. It takes being a rocket scientist to figure out their compensation plan. Everyone thinks they are your boss.
Thanks for sharing your experience and thoughts Carol. I’m sure their reps will now attempt to descredit your experience.
Love reading through these comments. I am currently an Affiliate for HempWorx and can attest that it is NOT a scam and they do have high-quality products.
With that being said, yes, their products are over-priced and they promote the income one “could” get. They thrive on paying “up to 85%” but 1- that is based on the business volume that is assigned to a product and 2- you have to be high up in the company to be earning that.
As with any MLM, less than 2% of the company will make a lot of money. You will probably be seeing many of the top earners create videos to hype others up. And yes, I’ve done research and written papers about MLM. I still joined HempWorx because I believe in the product itself.
Now about the product, the supplier for HempWorx is also the supplier for some other companies. So it is possible to get the same product for less. I have learned so much in the last month that I have joined.
Lastly, I just heard about a company that will be selling the same product, different label, and they plan to have distributors instead. They want to move from “recruitment driven earnings” to “product driven earnings”. Waiting to see if it really rolls out. I’ll keep you updated.
Thanks for chiming in Jake. It’s refreshing to hear from someone that has purchased the product and explored the MLM aspect and can actually admit and be objective about some of the challenges of this company. As you can see by some of the comments from reps they don’t want to acknowledge these things and just want to resort to name calling and such. Keep us updated. We need to hear more from people like you don’t just blindly drink the “kool-aid”.
Do you mind sharing the name of the supplier for Hempworx? Thanks for your review. Very informative. I was thinking about becoming a member and selling their product, but I’m still up in the air.
I would love to know about the distributor info when you get. It would be much appreciated. Thank you
I read Hempworx yearly pay disclosure and there is not a lot of money being paid out to all these affiliates.
I would love to know too. What I really like about Hempworx is the Sleep Spray from MDC- That’s what keeps me hanging around. I hate how I get no commission from outside or my own orders.
Anyone else sign up for the Hempworx dealer affiliate position? Results? Review? Opinions? Looking for some more feedback before I decide to join or not. I’m on the fence. Thank you.
I just joined I like the product I starting last Sunday and it has balanced me out where I just felt better than I can remember .
This makes me laugh! Talking down on a company/biz to try to promote your biz is a BIG NO NO !! Many people from WA And lots of things you’re saying here is not even true! Hempworx has many options –
What’s funny is how reps of companies like this never want to acknowledge their opportunity has issues like every company. Instead of actually addressing the complaints they attack the bloggers who have been helping people avoid scams for over a decade. Nice tactic.
I joined. Their customer service is the absolute worst. It cost me relationships with clients. I joined because a mom I respected raved about the product. It made my son and I unable to sleep and jumpy. But the worst part was they promised the world to families with neuro atypical kids and then didn’t deliver and when I needed to know where shipments were, they took over a week and three emails later to respond. Additionally if you respond to their “I’m sorry for the delay email in ANY WAY, they send you to the BACK of the customer services line.” Jenna’s videos are a joke. It’s all about them Benjamin’s for these guys. Complete waste of money and time. Save yourself the trouble.
Thanks for sharing your real experience with this company.
Lol how do you thank someone when you know what she said isn’t true ? Or you l have already believed your own lies ? Wow all these negative comments about Hempworx blows my mind! My experience with them is the complete opposite! People are something else ! Wow !
You’re really drinking this HempWorx kool-aid so much that you’re dissecting me thanking someone for sharing their experience. That’s interesting.
In either case, we’re all happy that you feel that this company is the best thing since sliced bread. But it doesn’t mean that’s everyone’s experience has been a good one and that’s fine. But in the real world, people will have positive and negative experiences with a company or product. I know some reps of MLMs don’t like when folks provide feedback that isn’t all positive and a controlled narrative. And that’s why people seek out reviews like this which provide people’s positive and negative feedback. This way people can make their own choices on based on various points of view and experiences.
Linda, what would you say to me about being on the fence about joining Hempworx? I’ve been thinking about joining for a about a week now. I live in Michigan and I got connected with a nice couple out in California wanting me to join their team. I told them that I’m not crazy about referring people to join a business, I’ve done it before and lets face it, I suck at selling. What would you tell me, better yet, what would be the best way to market this business. Thanks.
Hempworx will cost you far more than you can ever earn! They sign you up for automatic purchases every month without your knowledge! To stay active they force you to make personal purchases that are very expensive. This is a very deceptive company, they claim to have the best training but they do not, they only train you on how to keep active by buying product every month. Please do not join this shady company. It is very hard to make any money. The only ones getting rich are the owners.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts and experience Laura. It sounds like it wasn’t a good one for you.
Laura, I respect your opinion, however I feel obligated to clarify that Hempworx does not force you to do anything. The autoship is an option but not required. Sorry you had a bad experience, for me this company is my ticket to better health and a healthy paycheck.
This is not true and you know it!!
#1 – You have to set up your auto-ship. It is not set up for you.
#2 – You can cancel or change your auto-ship at any time.
#3 – Yes, as an affiliate you have to make a purchase to remain active. If you are not using the product(s), how can you sell them?
#4 – It’s a business!! If you don’t learn about the products, or how they work, you can not sell them. If you don’t work it as a business, you won’t make any money….same as with any other business….and I have a few.
#5 – Learn the difference between pyramid schemes (they have no products to sell) and legitimate business opportunities!! As with any business, there are people at the top (the boss), people in the middle, and people at the bottom. It’s just how things work!!
I am an affiliate with Hempworx. I have been reading these posts. I agree. You do have to spend money to make money. There is no pressure from anyone saying how much you have to spend. I have an autofill set up and I am not killing my checking account. I am working the smart way. I start affordable, then work my way up. If rhis program is followed correctly, and you sign up enough people underneath you, the money will come.
This is not a “Get rich quick” program. You have to spend money to make money. How much you spend is entirely up to you.
A pyramid scheme does not equal an MLM. Do your homework.
I love people who just scan reviews and leave comments like this. I guess you missed the part in my conclusion where I said this isn’t a scam. It would be nice to see people actually address the complaints that folks have with this company.
I do believe wealthy affiliate goes on recruiting also, right?
Wealthy Affiliate isnt an MLM that requires its members to promote it. It’s optional to be an affiliate. WA teaches you how to create a website about any passion you have and make money by promoting companies and products that people already know and trust such as Amazon, Walmart, target etc. So recruitment of other WA members isn’t a requirement to make money with their company. I promote WA because it helped me create a successful online business. But that was my choice. Other members of WA are creating websites on other topics and promoting other companies.
Eddy is correct about this company..and to add to that, their customer service is terrible. Two thumbs down.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts and experience.
Biased and trying to promote other websites for their own benefit. Unless you’ve been an affiliate for the company then you don’t have anything other than an uninformed opinion which is not enough to be able to make an informed recommendation.
If I was biased I would have just said all negative things about this company and called it a scam. How about actually addressing some of the complaints laid out above. Trying to discredit someone that has literally helped thousands of people avoid scams for over a decade doesn’t help address the flaws of this company. The reality is this company has issues like any company does.
Def bias!! there’s nothing good you truly said about Hempworx! Your tone says it all. You can’t say a good thing about it. Any “good” got put in a mediocre tone. Then bunch other things that aren’t even true! There are many things about Hempworx which makes it EXCELLENT compared to others .. im sure you’re clueless about. Hempworx is changing lives. Their product is second to none! Stunning company! People are good! They teach us not to be one of YOU ! They do everything by the book. They care about their people. There are many ways to work with Hempworx other than just being affiliates. You don’t have to be an affiliate if that’s not what you like to do. Every biz needs work. If you don’t know any truth about Hempworx, pls don’t write a review like this. You could be sued for spreading untrue info or lies. If your company is so great then talk about it promote it. Bringing down a company w many false info to promote yours isn’t the way to do biz.
Great job addressing the complaints.
If you think attacking me will help you recruit more people by all means carry on.
Hello Eddy! Thanks for telling us more about hempworx and it’s marketing plan. The title threw me off a bit when you used the phrase pyramid scam. The government defines a pyramid scam as a business opportunity that does not actually market a product. Just an FYI. Thanks again for your information!
You’re welcome Ted. I know what a pyramid scheme is. Unfortunately most people online don’t. They assume an MLM is a pyramid scheme or they view any work at home as a scam. So I used a title that I know would get people reading and thus providing folks with the right information.
FYI – No, the government has no such definition, nor does anyone else. Most Pyramid Schemes have products that they do market, they just care far more about the recruiting side of the marketing than the customer sales side, because that’s where the company/CEO is really making their money. The FTC’s own reports on the difference between Pyramids and ‘legit’ MLMs includes quotes like these.
“Many companies that market their products through distributors sell quality items at competitive prices. But some offer goods that are overpriced, have questionable merits, or are downright unsafe to use.
Find out what will you be selling. Are similar products on the market? Is the product priced competitively? Is it safe? Can your sponsor “” the distributor who is recruiting you “” support the claims about the product’s performance?”
“MLM’s have a real product to sell. More importantly, MLM’s actually sell their product to members of the general public, without requiring these consumers to pay anything extra or to join the MLM system. MLM’s may pay commissions to a long string of distributors, but these commission are paid for real retail sales, not for new recruits.”
Pyramid scams do, by and large, market a product. It’s just a product that doesn’t work, no one wants, is ridiculously overpriced or is otherwise a waste of time to market to the public – so instead they market it as a way for people to get make a lot of money with minimal legitimate effort.
And you’ll note that all the stuff Eddy said about it Hempworx products being potentially overpriced and comparable products being on Amazon for less, demonstrates that there are some MLMs that are basically “Pyramid Lite.” Plenty of prosecuted Pyramid schemes were once called simple MLMs, until a full investigation of them was called for and completed. If Hempworx is among the Vemmas and Herbalifes remains to be seen, but your argument against Eddy’s use of the word is not consistent with any definition of what makes a Pyramid scam an actual scam.
After buying 4 bottles of Hempworx, a friend of mine who is in her 60’s still has her sciatica and knee pain. She paid retail, and then she talked to us. We told her about something that we are using, and we know to be the best because we compared it. She knows us, likes us and trusts us. Yes, it was more money, but after 2 weeks of being consistent, her sciatica pain was gone and she slept so much better. Needless to say, she signed up to get a discount. There seems to be a bias in this review as the writer is promoting something else, but not another CBD product.
Thanks for sharing your experience and thoughts with us about their product and company.
I have laid the good and bad about this company. I know that bothers reps because it doesn’t fit their narrative of painting the picture that the company and product they’re promoting is perfect for everyone. But the reality every company has flaws. However I even stated at the end of this review that I didn’t think this company was a scam. If I was totally biased like you claimed I would have just bashed the company and called it a scam which I didn’t.
I could make more money if I did that with all my Reviews. But that’s not how I work. I tell folks the good and bad and provide them with alternative options that I trust. The fact I make money with my blog doesn’t make me any less objective and credible. I’m transparent about that and it’s not a dirty little secret you have revealed. People can read this review and others and make the best decision for them.
Furthermore if my objective was to be biased your comment would have not seen the light of day. But it’s here for everyone to see so folks can make a decision for themselves on this company. So thanks for sharing.
It’s amusing all these people so desperate for only positive reviews of the MLM they think is worthwhile, that they consider an objective breakdown of the programs pros, cons and inconsistencies a “biased” review. SMH.
If you ignore that 99.9% of MLMs make overblown claims about earning potential and product efficacy, and choose to rep for one anyway, you better know that every negative/con on this list exists, or you did NOT make an informed and adult decision to be a rep. And you damned sure shouldn’t argue against others being given the same information, so that their decisions can be informed as well.
Agreed Kat! Thanks for chiming in.
Hi All. Eddy (with a ‘y’), your review was not quite complete. If you want a truly complete review, I would suggest that if you want to compare prices of the products in your reviews, I would highly suggest that you refrain from using generalized statements such as, “You can easily purchase the same products from Amazon for much less.” As I am a distributor for a different company, I would state that the oils being sold through many different companies including through Amazon are compiled of different makeups. One bought through Amazon may contain less CBD oil as it may contain Coconut Oil or other ingredients which is why it is less pure and thus, less expensive. Comparing only prices is like comparing Apples to Oranges and not a true Review or Comparison. Do your due diligence on a specific item if you are going to review items. Otherwise, leave it at the business organization level.
The review wasn’t meant to dissect every little nuisance and detail of the company and their products. It’s a high level overview of the pros and cons of this company. People can easily go to amazon and compare the product ingredients side by side and determine if some of the nuisances you’re referencing is worth paying more for. And I expect they will read other reviews as well which may go deeper. That said, this doesn’t make my review any less helpful and you failed to address the other complaints I mentioned above. I know the tactic by reps is to attack the blogger who has helped people thousands of people avoid scams for over a decade rather than actually address the complaints listed above. If you think that somehow will plant seeds of doubts in the information then by all means carry on. But the reality is most people find this information useful and if they want to dig deeper they will do so. But at the very least, they will be aware that companies like this aren’t all perfect. And the kool-aid a rep may feed you may not be a complete picture. So it can lead to more research and more questions that a rep will need to address before someone blindly jumps into an opportunity that may or may not be right for them.
