Available in all 50 states, HempWorx offers a line of high-quality, affordable CBD-infused products advertised to help support a healthy state of mind, overall wellness, and a balanced endocannabinoid system.
All CBD used in their products is sourced in the USA from a Kentucky-based organic farm, where it’s grown 100 percent naturally without genetic modifications, and who uses a unique extraction method that doesn’t dilute the products with fillers, contaminants, or artificial ingredients.
All HempWorx products are fully FDA-complaint as well, since they contain less than 0.3% THC.
Together, the company claims their products are trusted by top doctors and health professionals around the world—but does that necessarily mean that you should become a customer or an affiliate? That’s the central question we’ll help you answer in this article.
The Basics of Hemp-Based CBD Products
The goal here isn’t to overwhelm you with information, but there are some important details we need to quickly cover in order to fully examine HempWorx’s claims.
Hemp is a commercial-grade form of cannabis that contains almost no tetrahydrocannabinol (or THC, the component that gets marijuana users ‘high’), while still retaining high levels of cannabidiol, or CBD.
Inside the body, CBD molecules attach to specialized cannabinoid receptors, which are part of our larger endocannabinoid system. And while research is still in its relative infancy, as we outline in Do CBD-Infused Creams, Oils and Other Products Really Work, this could deliver a wide range of potential benefits, including:
- Decreased inflammation
- Reduced chronic pain
- Relief from conditions like nerve damage, AIDS, diabetes, epilepsy, cancer, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and bone disease
- Support for age-related disorders like Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia
However, in the vast majority of instances, this CDB is delivered internally, whether using drops like those offered by HempWorx, or other forms of supplementation. But, we learned from professionals in the article there currently aren’t any formal studies looking at the relationship between topically applied CBD creams and pain relief, or reduced signs of aging.
With these basics in mind, what products does HempWorx lineup contain?
Taking a Closer Look at HempWorx’s Products & Ingredients
HempWorx offers a total of six different products:
HempWorx CBD Drops
This is the company’s flagship line, which consists of pure oil and herbal drops available in 500 mg (10 mg phytocannabinoid hemp oil) and 750 mg (12 mg phytocannabinoid hemp oil) concentrations, as well as in peppermint and natural flavors.
HempWorx claims these drops can help support healthy bones and blood sugar levels already within a normal range, promote healthy digestion, relieve stress, and neutralize free radicals and reduce instances of cellular degeneration. You can use as needed by dropping onto your tongue, or by adding to food and drinks for a punch.
Compared to other CBD oils, the company’s agricultural partners utilize fresh lock drying, a proprietary system that eliminates all mold and pathogens that can sneak past other quality control processes during packaging.
HempWorx Topical Products
An anti-aging cream rich in epigenetic factors that promises to help reduce wrinkles and fine lines, increase the longevity of skin cells, and help your skin look younger, tighter, and brighter. Ingredients:

Relief Icy Pain Rub
A topical rub whose proven ingredients are quickly absorbed through the skin to help melt away tension, muscle aches, joint pains, and symptoms related to rheumatoid arthritis. In fact, HempWorx advertises that CBD products (not Relief Icy Rub, specifically) have been shown to help relieve pain more effectively than opioid painkillers in some instances:

HempWorx for Pets
The company’s veterinarian formulated, beef flavored Dog Treats contain 2.5 mg of active CBD each (derived from the whole plant), and are free from wheat, soy, and corn.
Their 250 mg CBD Oil for pets comes in a natural bacon flavor and contains 5 mg of active CBD per serving, which is extracted from pressed hemp seed oil rich in fatty acids.
Could the CBD in HempWorx Products Cause Side Effects?
In our CBD article, we learned that common side effects reported by those who use internal CBD include headache, dizziness, and drowsiness (no specific circumstances or dosages noted). Alternately, other than perhaps caused by an allergy to hemp, no serious side effects have been reported by its topical application.
Still, on their website, HempWorx recommends checking with your physician or medical doctor before taking their products, especially if you’re “pregnant, chronically ill, elderly, under 18, or taking prescription or over the counter medicines.”
How Much Do HempWorx Products Cost?
When you’re ready to make a purchase, there are two ways to do so: as a Preferred Customer, where products are shipped directly to you, or as an Affiliate, which involves a one-time $20 activation fee, but will also allow you to earn commissions from the sales you make (more about this next).
After making your choice, you’ll gain access to five product packages:
- Entry Pet Product: $39
- 1 Product: $69

What Do We Know About the Company Behind HempWorx CBD Products?
HempWorx wasn’t listed with the Better Business Bureau at the time of our research, although we learned from their website that the main company, MyDailyChoice, was co-founded in 2014 by CEO Josh Zwagil and Jenna Zwagil.
They held an F rating with the Better Business Bureau, based on four positive customer reviews and 10 closed complaints, as of 5/9/18. Most appeared to reference shipping concerns.
In addition to HempWorx, MyDailyChoice also offers a line of oral nutritional supplement sprays like:
- Peak (deer antler velvet and superfruits)
- Shield (alkalinity spray w/coral calcium)
- Boost Natural Energy (Vitamin B12)
- Trim365 Weight Loss Spray (Garcinia Cambogia)
- Sleep (melatonin and valerian root)
- Brain (Cognizin and Sensoril)
Are There Other CBD-Based Products Like HempWorx?
As Josh frequently emphasized on the HempWorx website, the cannabis industry is growing rapidly. In fact, according to a 2017 Forbes article, it’s expected to create more jobs by 2020 than the manufacturing sector, with more than $24 billion in combined sales between the medical and recreational markets.
Even narrowing the focus to hemp-derived CBD, Statista.com reports this product category alone is projected to rake in more than $395 million by the year 2022.
What’s the point in mentioning these stats? There are perhaps thousands of CBD products competing for the same customer base as HempWorx, including several popular options the HighYa team has investigated in the past like Miracle Tincture, Sol CBD, and SuperCBD+.
Many (not necessarily these formulations) contain similar CBD concentrations as well, which means HempWorx might not always offer the most powerful products on the market, as advertised on their website.
Given all the manufacturers, formulations, and price points, how can you make the most empowered buying decision?
Returning to our CBD article, Dr. Jean Talleyrand, founder and Chief Medical Officer of MediCann in Oakland, California, and co-founder and Chief Medical Officer of The Clinical Endocannabinoid System Consortium in San Diego, California, emphasizes that any “product should be evaluated for its packaging, shelf life, and variance,” as well as third-party testing, which will show strength and purity.
For topical solutions, Dr. Talleyrand recommends focusing on formulas without DMSO, a skin penetrant that “may cause a rash.” Also, “water-based preparations do not mix well with the active ingredient and easily wipe off the skin,” he says.
You’ll also want to search online for customer feedback about the product and the manufacturer, which could provide insight into what you might expect after handing over your hard-earned money.
Pulling all of these details together, do they bode well for HempWorx?
Our Final Thoughts About HempWorx
Before handing over your money, we think there are a few important factors to consider:
Despite the fact that MyDailyChoice has been in business since 2014, we encountered very little online customer feedback for the company during our research, and essentially none for HempWorx products, specifically. And the feedback and ratings we did encounter for the company on the Better Business Bureau’s website were less-than-stellar.
Furthermore, if you’re just looking to try out one of their products, their $69 price tag is meaningfully higher than many of their CBD oil competitors.
Finally, the primary ingredient in each of their topical formulas is water, which we learned from Dr. Talleyrand earlier could mean they tend to wipe off easily and restrict the amount of CBD that penetrates your skin.
Given all of this, everyone’s body will react differently. So, if you feel like giving HempWorx products a try, the company offers a 30-day refund policy. This way, you might not be out much more than return S&H charges if you’re dissatisfied.
Scam and reps are liars
I bought the 500 mg bottle from reps Paul and Tara. They said it was the best thing since sliced bread and that it was perfectly legal. So I started taking it daily. But saw no results. I told Tara that it is was not working. Upon her recommendation, I then bought stronger 750 mg. Still nothing. I was told to keep taking it. It will work eventually.
On the third bottle, I came across a newspaper article that said CBD was illegal in the state of New Jersey without a valid prescription. I tried to tell the "reps" that and again with their rhetoric that is WAS legal and the newspaper was wrong. I did some research on my own and found out it is truly illegal in New Jersey without a valid prescription. The only way these charlatans get away with it, is that they break federal law and mail this stuff state to state without detection. Although there have been instances of the oil being discovered at the Post Office and confiscated. Also, people who have had this stuff on their person, have been arrested. Again the "reps" Tara and Paul swear up and down it's legal. This is a lie to part you from your money.
When I asked for my money back, they laughed at me, told me to call customer service and good luck, it's only 30-day money back guarantee. Then Paul proceeded to mock my very serious medical condition and laugh at me. Both should be put in jail for fraud. And they profess to be Christian. Yeah some Christians. Liars through and through.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I was skeptical until I used the product. 500mg THC free, 5 drops in the am and pm, along with the relief cream on my hands, and within 12 minutes my arthritis pain decreased to almost gone. I could bend all my fingers and felt great. On day 3, all gone. Crazy. Sooo, I am getting it for my mother. All my stiffness is gone...my joints have not felt this normal in years. I guess this stuff really does work. I will continue to use this.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Worx is a complete scam. It is a peer amid multi-level marketing. You have to pay $20 to become a member to buy their product. I have used numerous different CBD products. And I found there is to be pretty much useless. All of the reps will claim that it contains no THC, which is not true, it contains 0.3%. All the reps push so hard just like all the other peer amid scheme’s out there they’re like little robots programmed for sales. Their prices are double than anyone out there. Not impressed at all.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
