CBD MLM Comparison

CBD MLM Comparison – Which One Should You Join?

CBD is a growing market and there are several multi-level-marketing companies that give you the opportunity to build a business from it. However, with so many options it’s difficult to know which one to choose. We look at the top offers from networks like HBNaturals, Kannaway and Hempworx to see how they differ and what they offer.

I looked at these companies because I have had success with CBD oil in the past, using it to help improve my ADHD symptoms and I thought, if I am going to use it, I might as well get it at a discount.   So my search started for CBD companies and the amount on offer was staggering, but there seem to be few MLM companies promoting CBD.

MLM = multi-level-marketing companies.  Instead of making a one-off commission for referring a customer who buys a product through your affiliate link, you get to build a team and earn bonuses on the sales made by your team.  MLM companies are often accused of being a pyramid scheme, but this is untrue because they have a product you and your customers can buy and use. 

Benefits of MLM Companies

  • Training
  • Support from your upline
  • You can benefit from the visibility of a large network
  • Potential for passive income through sales in your downline

Cons of Some MLM Companies

  • Initial joining fee
  • Requirement to buy products
  • Monthly sales cuotas
  • High earning potential advertised is not achieved by most affiliates

Below are four CBD MLM companies I found while doing my research:

  1. Genius Hemp
  2. HBNaturals 
  3. Hempworx
  4. Kannaway

I will not tell you that one is better than the other.  If you search online for reviews, you will find negative and positive comments for all of them.  One of the main criticisms is the price of the products and how much they pay out to their affiliates.  My first experience with all of them was looking at the CBD oil and while they are not the cheapest, they are not the most expensive either.  All companies pay distributors, marketing and give discounts to wholesalers, and these are no different.

This is the company I finally decided on because I am based in Spain and wanted to source as local a product as possible. They are a relative newcomer to the market if you compare them with Hempworx and Kannaway, but they still managed to get shortlisted for the World CBD Awards in Barcelona 2019.

Products include:

  • CBD Oil
  • Liposomal CBD
  • Pet CBD products
  • CBD Cream
  • CBD coffee
  • Coffee
  • Lip Balm
  • Bath bombs

This is the only company I can give you a direct testimonial for as I have used the products myself – CBD oil for my ADHD and pet pastilles for my dog.


I like the fact their product range contains super-food supplements based on Ayurvedic principles.  They don’t  require a sign-up fee or make you feel you have to be a sales superstar.  

Products include:

  • CBD Oil
  • Essential biominerals – Iron, Potassium, Magnesium, Zinc
  • CBD Coffee
  • Hemp skincare products
  • Natural soaps
  • Wholefood multivitamins
  • Weightloss and detox 
  • Pet products
  • Essential oils


I almost joined Hempworx because of Laura Muhl who I connected with through Facebook.  She had great success with the product and is a passionate advocate of CBD.  When I asked her about the business she wasn´t pushy about it and I think she would a great person to have supporting you. One of the interesting things they offer is THC Free CBD Oil for those countries where importing CBD with THC, however little, is an issue.  

Products include:

  • CBD Oil
  • Hemp-infused coffee
  • Keto coffee creamer
  • Skincare products
  • Pet products

There is a one-time affiliate fee of $20 to join Hempworx as well as the initial product purchase which can be as little as $39.

I was also tempted by Kannaway because they recently did a big European launch which appealed to me as I am based in Spain and would like to ´buy local´.  They also have products that blend CBD with Chinese Herbal Medicine formulas.  Looking at their marketing and photos they give the impression they are the most traditional sales company which could be a bonus if you already have a sales and marketing mentality.   

Their products are expensive if you are looking for CBD oil because they don´t sell the usual 10ml bottle. Instead, they have their PureGold product which is 1000ml with a price tag to match.  You can´t make a direct comparison because the products are not exactly equal in terms of size and content, but it might reduce your pool of customers and potential affiliates due to price.

I love the fact their ECHO project “…provides cannabinoid product donations as well as financial assistance to families in need.

Products include:

  • CBD Oil
  • Skincare products
  • Pet products
  • Hemp clothing and accessories
  • Essential oils
  • Protein powders

The Best CBD MLM Company?

As I mentioned before you will find good and bad reviews for each company. Each one has success stories so ultimately you have to do your own research and decide which one is the best fit for you based on their product line and business opportunity.  

If you are a user of their products or have tried their business opportunity I would love to hear your experiences below in the comments. Also let us know if there are any other CBD MLM companies we haven´t listed.
