Hempworx CBD Review

Hempworx hemp oil

Hempworx CBD oil herbal drops have a nice webpage.  However, immediately you run into confusion about what is being sold, a confusion that works in their favor.  Most people don’t know the difference between CBD, CBD oil, and hemp oil.  Hempworx’s front page contains the visual above which shows the benefits of CBD.  Most consumers will assume from this that the product being sold is CBD oil.  Much of it is CBD with verified levels, but some of the products contain hemp oil instead.  These are clearly labeled, so it’s on the consumer to read and interpret the product labels.

You can see from the label here that what the product contains is labeled as ‘phytocannabinoid hemp oil’.  This is clearly not the same as CBD, so what is it?

I would say the explanation on Hempworx’s site is written in a confusing way, if innocently.

“With our HempWorx line, our products utilize a Full Spectrum CBD formulated with Hemp Seed Oil.”

First off, the hemp seed oil is oil extracted from hemp seeds.  It contains very little CBD and is not commonly used as a source for CBD since the rest of the plant contains much more CBD.  They claim to have a ‘full-spectrum CBD’ is very strange wording.  CBD stands for cannabidiol.  It is a single chemical, a single cannabinoid, so it cannot be ‘full spectrum’ because it contains no other ingredients.  This could be merely bad writing or could indicate an attempt to confound either consumers or more likely sellers.  The ingredients listed say hemp seed oil, CBD rich whole hemp extract, and flavoring.  There’s no list of just ‘CBD’ alone.  However, on the certificate of analysis provided by the organization, the percent of CBD comes out correct.  From this, we conclude that the ‘phytocannabinoid extract’ is indeed all of the cannabinoids together, but that more than 160% of that is comprised of CBD.  Therefore, we can fairly well trust that this product does, in fact, contain the stated level of CBD, despite the confusing wording.

hempworx oil

 Is its CBD oil? Yes.  It is both CBD oil and hemp oil.
Old, the trusted company? No.  Operating since 2014.
Contains verified therapeutic levels of CBD? Yes.
Sourced in the United States? Yes.
Sourced in Europe? No.
Certified Organic in the US? Unknown.
Certified Organic by the European Commission? Unknown.
Did the lab test in the United States? Yes.
3rd Party Testing? Yes.
Do they tell what percentage CBD in a product? Yes.
CO2 extracted? Yes.
GMO-free? Yes.
Pesticide-free? Yes.

Hempworx CBD oil appears to contain the stated amount of CBD and these are therapeutic levels of CBD.  We are given pause by the heavy concentration on multi-level marketing on the website.  However, the website does appear to offer single item purchases.  Also, they have passed most of the above questions about the product.

Advantages of Hempworx Hemp Oil

If the product indeed contains therapeutic levels of cannabidiol, it can have the following benefits:

  1. Reducing anxiety and an antidepressant effect.
  2. Cannabidiol can protect the brain from neurodegenerative diseases.
  3. Pain Relief for minor aches and pains.
  4. Improvement in cardiovascular health.
  5. Reduction of inflammation.
  6. CBD may help strengthen bones.

As well as these benefits pointed out by Hempworx, there are the benefits of hemp oil itself, which includes healthy fats, cannabinoids, and terpenes.

The other cannabinoids can help to reduce inflammation and pain.  Cannabinoids have a variety of effects on the body.  Exogenous cannabinoids have mostly anti-inflammatory effects.

Lab Analyses

hempworx certificate

Despite the strange wording on the website, this certificate of analysis appears to show that this product does indeed have the stated level of CBD, about 10 mg per dropper.  It is confounding, therefore, why they have tried to conflate CBD oil and hemp oil, even using ‘phytocannabinoid hemp oil’ on the ingredients label rather than just saying, CBD content.

As you comb through the web pages, it’s clear the product is meant for a multi-level marketing scheme.  Many of these companies do not expect anyone to actually use the product.  They just want people who will buy it in hopes of selling it to someone else.  One previous potential customer has said he could not buy the product, as the company demanded a referral.  This means multi-level marketing might be their main business.  This can lead to problems getting the product for regular consumers, though they do have an option to sell directly to the consumer as well on the website.

Ingredients for CBD Herbal Drops 500 mg:

  • Pressed Hemp Seed oil
    Hemp seed oil is made from hemp seeds.  It contains low levels of cannabinoids, terpenes, and fatty acids.  It is a healthy dietary supplement in its own right.
  • CBD-Rich Whole Hemp Extract
    Hemp extract is taken from the whole plant and contains higher levels of CBD than hemp seed oil.  This is where the CBD levels come from.  However, we are confused by the labeling.  If we expect the 500 product to have 500 mg of CBD, are we right?  The label shows 500 mg of ‘phytocannabinoid hemp oil’.  The solution is that about 160% of that is CBD, with the other cannabinoids as a tag along.  This is effective.
  • Flavoring, Peppermint
    Flavoring components are mostly neutral.  Menthol, however, activates TRPM 8 receptors and boosts or offsets the effects of various drugs.

Natural Flavor:  Hemp flavor is produced by various cannabinoids and Hempworx CBD terpenes which have therapeutic effects.

How to Use

Vaping

Hempworx does not make vape products.  We can say fairly confidently that CBD vape products are bunk.  Never have we seen one which contains therapeutic CBD levels.  So, this is a good sign of quality.

Edibles

This is where hempworx shines.  They have hemp-infused coffee where they give you the dose of CBD.  Same for the creamers which instead list the dose of hemp oil.  Therefore, you know exactly what you are getting, even with these creative edibles.

Sublingual

Hempworx’s CBD hemp oil drops can be used sublingually.

Topical application

Revive Collagen Anti-Aging CBD cream can be used topically.  Also, Relief Icy Pain Rub CBD Cream and Renew Anti-Aging Cream are topical products with CBD and other ingredients.

Tinctures

Hempworx CBD oil drops are an oil tincture which can be eaten with food or applied under the tongue.

hempworx dosage recommendations

How it Works

Hempworx’s products have cannabidiol as the main active ingredient.  Cannabidiol is known to have many mechanisms of action.  We list the receptors in the central nervous system which cannabidiol binds to below.  These include cannabinoid receptors, serotonin receptors, and orphan receptors which are related to cannabinoid receptors by their structure.  CBD also modulates opioid receptors by which it affects pain perception.  These are not the only receptors cannabidiol may bind to or effect.

Cannabidiol and cannabidiolic acid work by binding to various receptor targets throughout the central nervous system and the rest of the body.  Acting at these receptor sites, it exerts influence on the metabolism of various neurotransmitter systems.  It seems like ‘snake oil’ that one compound can have all the beneficial effects listed above; however, cannabinoid receptors exist throughout the nervous system and it is known that such a ubiquitous receptor must be involved in nearly everything the nervous system does, just like serotonin and dopamine receptors.  Dopamine affects pleasure, but also pain.  Anxiety and also relaxation.  Heart contraction and blood pressure.  All of these systems are integrated so cannabinoid receptors will indeed have effects on all of these systems and exogenous cannabinoids from plants can definitely have therapeutic effects which are extensive.
The action of CBD and CBDa produce anti-inflammatory, anti-pain, and anti-seizure effects which can help relieve stress in a range of discomforting conditions.

Does CBD have any side effects?

CBD is unlikely to have many side effects under 300 mg daily.  Above that dosage, one should consult a doctor.

In general, CBD is safe and well-tolerated.  Doses above 300 mg should have a doctor’s monitoring.

 Hempworx CBD Oil reviews

Review Rating: C.  “Do we keep trying other brands?”

Hempworx CBD Oil review C

This Facebook user did not have any luck with the product, but the child in question has severe deficits.

Review Rating: B.  “Are they just straight-up scamming people…”

Hempworx CBD Oil review C

We include this review merely to note that at least one other person wonders their CBD hemp oil is even CBD oil, or if it is merely hemp oil.  This is not clear on the labeling, but after digging up information and doing some calculations, I believe the product may, in fact, contain therapeutic levels of CBD.  Most likely, they failed to clearly demonstrate this because they are worried about selling to marketers, not to customers, and that could lead to supply issues for the consumer.  Some MLM products, you can’t even get without becoming an affiliate.

Review Rating: c “Low production cost, high markup…”

Hempworx CBD Oil review

This is often the chorus on Hempworx products.

Hempworx CBD Oil review A

This Reddit user is correct that many claims made on the Hempworx website will get them in trouble with the FDA; however, this does not mean the product isn’t real.  It just means they aren’t very much worried about selling to consumers because they are focused on selling to resellers, who may or may not ever sell or use the product.

Q&A about Hempworx CBD

Q:  Is CBD the same was marijuana?
A: CBD stands for cannabidiol.  It is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, one among as many as 125 identified cannabinoids in industrial hemp.
CBD is not pot, marijuana, hash, weed, or cannabis.  Hempworx’s CBD products contain no psychoactive THC, only small amounts of therapeutic THC, with large amounts of therapeutic CBD.  Marijuana usually contains THC which is psychoactive, CBD does not.
Q:  What other cannabinoids are found in hemp oil?
A: Hemp oil may contain over 125 cannabinoids, including:

  •  THC (tetrahydrocannabinol)
  • THCV (tetrahydrocannabivarin)
  • THCA (tetrahydrocannabinolic acid)
  • CBV (cannabivarin)
  • CBT (cannabicitran)
  • CBN (cannabinol)
  • CBDA (cannabidiolic acid)
  • CBDV (cannabidivarin)
  • CBE (cannabielsoin)
  • CBG (cannabigerol)
  • CBGM (cannabigerol monomethyl ether)
  • CBGV (cannabigerovarin)
  • CBL (cannabicyclol)
  • CBD (cannabidiol)
  • CBCV (cannabichromevarin)
  • CBC (cannabichromene)
Q: What is phytocannabinoid hemp oil?
A: This is hemp oil which contains a full range of phytocannabinoids, including nearly 160 percent CBD content.  This became a point of confusion when we first examined the label but we have concluded the product likely does have the professed CBD content.  CBD and phytocannabinoids are used interchangeably because most of the phytocannabinoid is CBD with the other cannabinoids not comprising half a milligram for every 10 mg of CBD.
Q:  Is it legal?
A: Yes, with some caveats.  CBD and CBDa are legal in most states of the United States as long as it comes along with no more than 0.03% THC.  CBD all by itself is pretty much legal everywhere.  However, you could still run into legal problems if you have a cop or court which is hell-bent on charging people with violation of marijuana laws or even laws about where you can buy non-psychoactive hemp.  This is rare but has happened on occasion.CBD is legal in many countries, including:

  • Argentina,
  • Austria,
  • Belgium,
  • Belize,
  • Brazil,
  • Bulgaria,
  • Canada,
  • Chile,
  • China,
  • Colombia,
  • Costa Rica,

  • Uruguay
  • S. Virgin Islands,
  • Switzerland,

  • Georgia,
  • France,
  • Finland,
  • Estonia.
Q:  Is hemp oil new?
A: Hemp has been around for at least 12,000 years.
Q:  How does CBD work?
A: CBD binds to receptors in the central nervous system including endocannabinoid receptors which help modulate the levels of monoamines, perceptions of pleasure and pain, and mood.
Q:  Is CBD psychoactive? Will it make you high?
A: No, and no.
Q:  Does Hempworx provide 3rd party labs on their website?
A: Yes, and the labs confirm that the CBD hemp oil product contains therapeutic levels of CBD.
Q:  What’s the difference between CBD, hemp oil, and hemp extract?
A: CBD means cannabidiol.  It is a single cannabinoid, the second most abundant in marijuana and the most abundant in low THC hemp.  Hemp oil is hemp seed oil.  It contains healthy fatty acids, but only very low levels of CBD.  Hemp extract is hemp oil extracted from the whole plant, standardized for levels of CBD.

Conclusion

Grade:  B

Hempworx probably has some utility as a multi-level marketing tool.  If we believe the lab reports, the CBD oil may be a good product.  It has at least 10 mg of CBD per dropper, and less than 1 mg of other cannabinoids.  Even the coffee tells you exactly how much CBD is in it and it is a therapeutic amount.  So, they get a good grade for this.  This is a good mix of cannabinoids.  However, it comes at the expense of an affiliate program so the price is significantly marked up.

CBD oil disclaimers (please read, this is important):

General Medical Disclaimer

NCSM and its employees and partners do not represent the medical establishment and our information is not a replacement for your doctor’s advice.

Food and Drug Administration Disclaimer

Use of CBD products with the exception of Epidiolex and Sativex has not been evaluated or approved by the FDA.  These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

Drug Screening Disclaimer

While most CBD products claim to have little to no THC, it is theoretically possible to fail a drug test for THC.  This can happen because some CBD products have been tested to have far more THC than represented on the label.  Also, CBD is similar in structure to THC.

It is a good product with a price on the higher side but the real downer is that of the 3 times I have ordered this product this is the second time it has taken more than 2 weeks to get.

Traci said:

I’ve been using hempworx 750 ml for just over a week , I’ve tried other brands and have not had the results I get from hempworxs I’m sticking with it and recommend it to others .

P Lindquist said:

Hempworx has hands down made all of the difference for me personally. It works. Period. And now that they have the Certified Hemp Authority Seal there should be NO QUESTION as to whether or not the product is quality and pure like they state. Time to update your wording here. 👍

Jack Andrews said:

You realize tha tthe US Hemp Authority Certified Seal is a “pay for play” program, right? You have to pay them to have them certify you. So, if you are a big company, and you have the money, you can pay to participate in their program. At the very least amount, HempWorx contributed $50,000 to them. Not saying the product is bad, but eventually, everyone will see the truth.

It worx. Within a week of usage and my blood pressure has normalized.

Cyndi Marley said:

I have used 2 other CBD oils. First 1 didn’t stop my pain and it was very thick like vegetable oil.
2nd one was think milky looking absolutely disgusting. It was a little bottle & cost me $80.
I was reluctant trying another oil but my friend urged me. HempWorx750mg peppermint is amazing. I am walking with no assistive devices and NO Pain. Definitely worth the $89 Thank you HempWorx!!

Phil Allen said:

The Gorilla 🦍 in the room seems to elude everyone… especially those who claim to be ‘experts’ in making a qualified “review” of the product. Why is no asking or answering the $65 MILLION question… what is the “bioavailability” rating of product… what is the “delivery” vehicle used… and, show me the published Third Party Clinical Trials and the Published White Paper Proof…⁉️ I’mjustaskin’⁉️

Samantha said:

Many times it was mentioned that Hempworx doesn’t seem to care if affiliates actually use the product that it is more about selling it and I can tell you that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Every affiliate I know uses it and it is very important to the company for us to be a product of the product. Also it is not expensive at all because you only have to use drops not dropperfuls. Everyone is different in how many drops they use but most people are able to have one bottle last for several months. The key to success is to go slow & build. Also it typically takes about 3 weeks for major results to be seen & felt. My husband uses it for his MS, my son uses it for ADHD and I use it for general well being and it has helped us all so much. It didn’t earn the U.S. Hemp Authority Seal for nothing and yes Hemp is now legal in all 50 states because of the Farm Bill. Hemp is no longer a controlled substance.
Hempworx is an MLM but there is nothing wrong with that and it does not mean the product is inferior in any way and it is a great MLM with giving a person the opportunity to make 50% commission right from the start without a team. Not many companies offer that.

Paul Wong said:

This article seem to be written by a bunch of novices in the subject. The reference of HW using hemp seed oil is completely out of context.
Hemp seed oil is used as the medium to carry the CBD… look at other products using coconut oil (which is the cheaper way out) as their medium. At least HW is a complete usage of the Hemp leaf!
You need to educate yourself on what you’re reviewing… you’re confusing your readers and people who are in need of this product.
