Kannaway Prepares to Launch High-CBD Hemp Products MLM Marketing Campaign

The Kannaway Buzz Launch, the world’s first “Hemp-Based Network Marketing Company” celebrated the pre-launch of the release of its CBD-rich hemp products this weekend in preparation for its formal launch April 1.

Kannaway says its products are legal to purchase and ship in all 50 states because they do not contain THC, the cannabinoid responsible for the cannabis “high” recreational users seek. The products are made from hemp oil, which is naturally high in cannabidiol (CBD) and can be imported from countries legally allowed to grow it.

Kannaway’s initial offerings are a CBD-oil vaporizer pen and a CBD-rich salve, both products are distributed by HempMeds PX, which is working with Kannaway to promote its products.

Kannaway produces hemp-based high-CBD products it hopes to have success with via peer-to-peer networking markets. The company will use multi-level marketing (MLM), a compensation system for sales people that rewards not just the sales of the individual sales person but also those they recruit. MLMs are also referred to as network marketing, referral marketing and sometimes as pyramid schemes.

Other companies using MLM sales tactics include Avon, Nu Skin, Mary Kay, The Pampered Chef and USANA Health Services.

Demand for CBD-rich medicine was fueled by the story of Charlotte Figi, a Colorado girl suffering from Dravet Syndrome, told by Sanjay Gupta in the CNN Special “Weed”. The Figi family found success treating Charlotte’s condition with a high-CBD strain bred by Colorado-based Realm of Caring; the strain was later named Charlotte’s Web in her honor.

Since the show’s airing, conservative states have introduced legislation legalizing CBD from sources so low in THC they can be classified as hemp. The distinction is significant, many of the legislators have decried that what they are legalizing is, in fact, not marijuana and cannot get people high, branding it as the sensible legal alternative to medical marijuana.

Isolated CBD products, such as Real Scientific Hemp Oil (RSHO), which is also available from HempMeds PX, have been known to provide relief in a variety of patients sensitive to THC or desiring the ability to use medical cannabis while mitigating its psychoactive effects.

Stacy Shakley-Lynch, mother of Blake Zika, has chronicled her success with the high-CBD products for the company. She had initially heard rumors about its quality and efficacy but decided to try it anyway, but not without an independent lab test, which she says turned out to match the company’s claims. Zika, 22, lives in Southern California and has a medical marijuana recommendation to treat his epilepsy.

Lynch says she tried every pharmaceutical option before pursuing medical marijuana. She says Zika is doing better than he has in 18 years, and no longer takes 80 percent of his prescribed seizure medications. Portions of his brain have been removed or damaged because of the pharmaceutical drugs he was prescribed as a child.

Lynch has experimented with balances of CBD and THC medications and has found great success with RSHO, although she is still experimenting with THCa and mixes of whole-plant medicinal applications. She says even her family physician noticed the positive change in Blake:

“[Blake’s doctor] said ‘keep doing what you’re doing’,” Lynch says.

CBD, along with THC, is still technically viewed as a Schedule I drug federally, with no accepted medical value.

    Hi J and M, many people mistake Network Marketing for Pyramid Schemes, it is, when done properly as Kannaway is, THE most effective way to spread the word of high quality products to the most people while sharing the revenues with mainstream people like nothing else can rather than to advertising and paying millions of dollars to huge corporations. Average people changing their lives daily. I’ve seen it too many times with my own eyes not to believe it to be true.

    Kannaway claims that CBD rich hemp seed oil is legal in all 50 states. This is not even close to being true. I’ll show you what Illinois law says about CBD as an example.

    Illinois Law 720 ILCS 550:
    “Cannabis” includes marihuana, hashish and other substances which are identified as including any parts of the plant Cannabis Sativa, whether growing or not; the seeds thereof, the resin extracted from any part of such plant; and any compound, manufacture, salt, derivative, mixture, or preparation of such plant, its seeds, or resin, including tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and all other cannabinol derivatives, including its naturally occurring or synthetically produced ingredients, whether produced directly or indirectly by extraction, or independently by means of chemical synthesis or by a combination of extraction and chemical synthesis; but shall not include the mature stalks of such plant, fiber produced from such stalks, oil or cake made from the seeds of such plant, any other compound, manufacture, salt, derivative, mixture, or preparation of such mature stalks (except the resin extracted therefrom), fiber, oil or cake, or the sterilized seed of such plant which is incapable of germination.

    CBD is a Cannabinol and is illegal in Illinois. Even in states where it is legal you cannot import CBD rich hemp seed oil from other states. Illinois legalized medical marijuana but it has to be grown in a state licensed facility of which licenses will be limited to 20 and sold in one of 60 licensed dispensaries. Just to meet the licensing requirements will cost you about $500,000 with $25,000 non refundable application fees. The law still requires that it is produced and sold in one of these facilities and not be brought in from other states. This is typical of the 20 states that have a medical marijuana law on the books. You are being scammed by a Multi Level Marketing company.

      Move to California or Colorado why fight the movement? Life is to short and the article you read is not worth the paper it was written on…unless of course it was written on hemp!-) Have you hugged a family member today…what is more important to you, your happiness or that article you quoted?

      Chris, give it up. Your posts are everywhere. HempmedsPX has been around for several years as well as other hemp oil companies. Nobody has gone to jail. Take a chill pill. There’s a movement happening in this country incase you didn’t know 🙂

    The Entourage Effect is crucial when using Cannabinoid medicines. Also, I wish for the TEST results to be posted, including but not limited to… Cannabinoid Profile, residual solvents, mold, FERTILIZER AND PESTICIDE. It’s almost definitely grown (and extracted) in China. At the price, might as well grow your own.

      Here is a link showing how not pure this product is: I am tired of so called CBD companies claiming that what they provide is medicine. Anyone using a CBD from hemp product please be aware of what you’re actually getting because it is not what you think. These formulations start with a crude and dirty hemp paste (contaminated with microbial life! I have seen this and these organisms decompose the paste. The paste perhaps even contains residual solvent and other toxins as the extraction is done in China ) made in a process that actually renders it unfit for human consumption.

      What these companies are doing is criminal and dangerous. In fact MJNA’s RSHO is literally just this hemp paste diluted in hemp seed oil. No refinement at all!!! And what Dixie Botanicals is offering is beyond disturbing. I cannot keep quiet any more. And since I formulated most of these products as head of Dixie science, I feel responsible for spreading the truth. I left Dixie for ethical reasons but it is not enough to just walk away. These frauds need to be exposed for what they are. Look out for my tell all article coming soon and feel free to contact me directly with questions as it is time to blow the whistle. Let’s keep this industry pure and safe.” — Tamar Wise, formerly head of Dixie Science.

        The makers if Kannaway’s hemp oil,have won the cannabis cup award FOUR years in a row now for purest oil. There are also documented lab results that will soon be made public.

        All lies. I have yet to see on bad lab. I have private labs on it. All same old rumors with zero proof. The RSHO is free of pesticides, mold, solvents. The RSHO labs match the hempmedspx labs on cbd/thc ratios.

    Hello there,

    I am writing in concern for my wife Gina. She has been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and recently an autonomic nervous disorder. She recently has had tremors and her Drs are not listening of course. She is on about 10 different prescriptions. We hate it. We consume cannibas when we can considering its illegal here where we are. It does wonders of course. Unless we move, things will just get worse. My Aunt turned us on to your website and we are watching a YouTube conference video as I type. CBDs sound like something we would be interested in. Especially for my wife’s condition. Just looking for some relief.
    Thanks guys,

      I am a cannabis activist and professional salesman/marketer. I was in this company very early february because it was a no brainer for me when they combined the two things im good at. cbd helps peoples lives and instead of paying advertising for the company and keeping all the profits they will pay people on the streets to advertise for them. This is a simple plan that has created great results, normal people are getting healthy and wealthy with hemp and there are some haters. Look at the successful relationship marketing systems that have produced amazing results throughout their entire organization, look at kannaways compensation plan, look at how cbd helps promote good health and It is legal in all 50 states, i know this personally, it has been shipped out to hundreds in my business by way of fed ex. I love this company and its products. It is not a pyramid scheme… the government is a pyramid scheme we are already in.. I am available for questions or as a sponsor if you want to involved.

    I, too, have been following Blake’s incredible progress over the past 100 or so days of using RSHO, and am so glad to be a part of this amazing opportunity to help bring CBD and hemp to those who need it most.

    I use the RSHO on my more painful days, and use the tincture and HempVap and gum for my daily maintenance doses to help my body reduce its inflammatory response.
