CTFO Review – Are their CBD Oils Cheaper and Better than others?

With the legalization of CBD oil derived from hemp, hundreds of companies like Kannaway, HempWorx, and many more, are flocking into the market to get a share of the pie. 

Changing The Future Outcome (CTFO) is one of them, and it is currently considered to be among the leading CBD-based Multi-Level Marketing Companies today.

You are probably here because someone you know recommended you to this company and you wondering if you should try their CBD Oil and join their business opportunity.

You are in the right place because in this CTFO review, we are going to discuss everything you need to know about the company's products as well as the business opportunity so that you can make an informed decision.

CTFO Business Opportunity Review Summary

Product Quality

Initially, I had doubts about the quality of the CBD oil because they are selling them at a low price, but after understanding why and how they were able to sell at such a low price, my view about them changed entirely, in a positive way. To understand why their products are cheaper and better (click here). You'd be surprised to know that I am not an affiliate of CTFO.

Business Difficulty

Due to the legalisation, CBD has become a commodity, which means that there is no uniqueness about the products, and the profitability and sell-ability lies heavily on the price and quality of the commodity. Thankfully, the company is selling products at a low price, however, we still can't ignore the fact that a high percentage of CTFO distributors fail in the business.

Cost to Join

CTFO provides one of the cheapest business opportunity in the Multi-Level Marketing industry. It is FREE to join as an affiliate, and if you want to be compensated, all you need is to subscribe to a monthly product autoship which cost $47.47. You'll be buying the products anyway.

CTFO-Reviews

Founder: Stuart Finger


The first question to ask yourself, before you join the business, is if you truly have a good experience with CTFO's CBD Oil. 

Because if you are not convinced that CBD Oils work, then how are you going to convince others, right?


Then, assuming the products worked, the next question is, do you or your upline knows how to effectively use the internet to generate a massive amount of leads?


Because, if you are only relying on your social circle, you'll most likely be stuck in this business, and you won't know how to progress. So, if you'd like to become successful with CTFO, I highly recommend that you learn from this program on how to attract an endless stream of leads.


Alternatively, if you think the CTFO business is not suitable for you... And, you are still looking for ways to earn money from home, then I'll suggest that you check out this program. It is the program that allowed me to quit my full-time job and still earn a full-time income from home.

What is Changing The Future Outcome?

Changing The Future Outcome (CTFO) is a multi-level marketing company founded by Stuart Finger in 2015, with his brother Steve Finger serving as CEO and Michael Kahn as COO.

Changing-The-Future-Outcome-Founder

It is no coincidence that there are 2 companies with the same acronym "CTFO".

You already know what this CTFO stands for, the other is called Chew The Fat Off, which is also another company founded by Stuart Finger.

Chew The Fat Off is primarily focused on selling weight loss products while Changing The Future Outcome sells CBD related products.

Stuart Finger has a long track record in the MLM industry that goes back to 1996. 

He was also the founder of another MLM company called GBG. Since the closing of CBG, it seems that his entire GBG team is now with him in this Changing The Future Outcome.

And while CTFO is now trying to be a full pledge CBD MLM company, it still sells its original Chew The Fat Off weight loss products.

4 Critical Things You Need to Know About CTFO

#1 Price of CTFO's CBD Oil Vs. Other CBD MLMs

Like I've mentioned above, CTFO is not the only famous CBD MLM Company on the market. There are many other similar companies like:

So, when it comes to CBD oil price, where do CTFO stand?

Interestingly, in a price list by cbdoilusers.com, an authority website in the CBD market, CTFO products are nowhere to be found.

CTFO-Products-CBD-Price

Now, comparing the price of CTFO's CBD Oil (image below) against the  product price list above...

We can say that CTFO is selling some of the cheapest CBD Oil compared to its peers.

CTFO-CBD-Prices

#2 CTFO's CBD Oil Quality

Other than the price, you need to pay close attention to the quality and purity of the CBD oil.

It becomes a norm to ask for a Certificate of Analysis (COA) for the CBD Oil, because with a a lab test certification, you'll be able to determine what is really in the product rather than relying on the product label.

In the COA, it will tell you if the product is free from toxins, pesticides, and mold, and if it contains lesser than 0.3% THC.

And, it will also tell you if the purity of the CBD oil matches what is written on the product label.

CTFO CBD vs. HempWorx CBD

There's been a rising trend of people comparing the products of HempWorx and CTFO, so let's put them in the spotlight.

Both the CBD oils of HempWorx and CTFO are lab tested by third-party laboratories, but I've found something interesting about these third-party lab results.

This video puts you into perspective that lab test results can be bought, and it is good that you know what you are getting into.

But don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that CTFO nor HempWorx falsify their lab test results.

I am just sharing with you that there is such a thing happening in the CBD industry.

Now, speaking of third-party tie-up laboratories...

HempWorx's products are tested by "Proverde Laboratories," while CTFO has tested their products with several laboratories.

However, HempWorx is a certified member of the US Hemp Authority while CTFO is not.

CTFO products were first lab tested by "Precision Analytic Testing LLC," a new CBD Analytic Testing Lab set up by NutraFuels, Inc. 

But a top distributor who happened to read this CTFO review informed me that the company no longer uses Precision Analytic Testing LLC for lab testing. 

So now, CTFO tested their products with 2 third-Party laboratories which are both ISO Accredited, EVIO Labs (ISO Accreditation # 97164), and Green Scientific Labs (ISO Accreditation # 17025).

With multiple lab test results, one can confidently buy a CBD Oil from CTFO and know that it is good quality, even though they are not a certified member of the US Hemp Authority.

#3 CBD Extraction Method

The surest method to extract the purest and most potent CBD from the plant is the Supercritical CO2 extraction method.

Most top brands in the CBD Industry are using this method, including CTFO.

CDB-Extraction-Method-For-CTFO

CBD derives from the Cannabis or hemp plant, and the plant contains over 400 chemical entities, THC included (the compound that gets you high), so CBD extractions are very delicate.  

But the Supercritical CO2 extraction method is expensive due to the equipment used. Hence, an equipment cost is usually added to the price of the CBD products.

However, CTFO found a way to use this sophisticated extraction method while keeping the prices of their CBD products at minimum.

#4 Why CTFO CBD Products Are Cheaper

Here's the exciting thing that sets CTFO apart.

I found that the reason CTFO products are marketed at such low prices is that the management team (Stuart Finder and others) do not draw executive compensation (salary) from the company.

They based their salary much like any other CTFO distributors - by the number of products they sell and the size of their sales team, which is a commendable thing!

You see in most MLM companies...

The people at the top (the founders and the management team) will usually draw a salary from the company, even without making any sales themselves.

No wonder CBD products from other MLM companies have to be sold at a premium price.

And even if you compare the price of CTFO's CBD oils against other competitors which are not MLM companies, CTFO still sits among the cheapest in the market.

IMPORTANT: I am not an advocate or an associate of CTFO. I am just sharing the information that I've gathered, and I hope that it can help you make the right decision.

Now, if you are interested in the CTFO business opportunity, here's what you need to know.

Changing The Future Outcome Compensation Plan

Like HempWorx, Zilis, or Kannaway, you can make money as a CTFO distributor by selling the products and building a sales team.

There are 4 ways you can earn from CTFO...

Retails Commissions

Changing the Future Outcome pays a 20% commission on all retail orders. You will be given an online storefront, through which you can sell and promote CTFO products to earn retail commissions.

The Changing The Future Outcome MLM compensation plan also includes Unilevel, Regenerating Matrix Pay and Infinity Bonus Pay.

Unilevel

This compensation pays up to 5 levels, and it is somewhat unique in the sense that there is no limit to the number of your 1st level recruits.

Anyone you enroll in the company becomes your first level of downlines, and you will get 20% on all their sales.

CTFO-Unilevel-Commissions

Anyone else who joins your team not recruited by you down to the 5th level, you will earn 4% in commissions.

Regenerating Matrix Pay

This is a two-part system, so make sure you won't miss anything.

The first part of this compensation plan is paid via a 3x21 matrix. You are only allowed a maximum of 3 personally enrolled recruits on your first level.

Each person under you will also only have 3 people under them (so 9 in your 2nd level, 27 in your third level) down to 21 levels.

You will earn 1% commissions from levels 1-5, 10% on level 6 and 7, and another 1% from the 8th to the 21st level recruits. This is on top of the Unilevel commissions you are earning.

CTFO-Regenerating-Matrix-Compensation-Plan

The second part of this compensation plan (refer to the right of the above image), you'll have to personally enroll five people to qualify for all levels of commission in the Regenerating Matrix Pay.

  • If you refer one person only, you'll earn a 25% of the commission from the 1st to 7th level.
  • If you refer two people, you'll earn a 50% of the commission from the 1st to 7th level.
  • Three personally enrolled people will earn you a 100% of the commission from the 1st to 7th level.
  • Four personally enrolled people will unlock the 8th to 14th level commission.
  • And, five personally enrolled people will unlock the full 21 levels of commission.

CTFO Profit-Sharing

The Regenerating Matrix Pay comes with one extra feature, Profit-Sharing Positions.

If you've personally enrolled four people and above, those recruits will be placed directly under you (on your 1st level), which expands your potential earnings tremendously.

Infinity Bonus Pay 

This is for the higher ranking CTFO distributors. As you continuously build your business, you will unlock different ranks that will determine your earning potential with the Infinity Bonus Pay.

CTFO-Infinity-Bonus-Pay

On top of all your earnings with the Unilevel and Regenerating Matrix pay, you can additionally earn up to 19% commissions for the sales of your team up to infinity levels!

You can verify the information I've just shared on this updated CTFO review by watching the latest video (2019) below by Michael Kahn, COO of the company.

Cost To Join CTFO

It is free to become a CTFO affiliate or retailer.

But if you want to participate in the MLM compensation plan, you will have to subscribe to a monthly product autoship that costs $47.47.

If you don't want to pay a monthly fee, you can still participate in the MLM compensation plan by enrolling and maintaining at least ten people in your team who will subscribe to the $47.47 autoship.

Now, this looks like a really good deal, right? 

Well, before you go and join CTFO, let me tell you that more than 95% of all the people who join this business does not make money.

Read the next part of this CTFO review to find out why.

Why More Than 95% Of People Don't Make Money With CTFO

Okay, to be fair, this is not on Changing The Future Outcome alone. This statistics is real across the entire MLM industry.

I have been with different MLM companies before too, and based on my experiences, these are the most common reasons why most people fail in this kind of business.

#1 Lack Of Leads

No matter how good your product is or how promising the business opportunity, it all boils down to how many people you can share it with.

I know you probably have made a list of people that are most likely candidates to join CTFO or buy your products. 

But what happens once you've exhausted that list?

Most of the people I see who quit MLM like CTFO are the ones who have no idea how to get a steady source of leads (prospects) for their business.

#2 Lack Of Guidance And Support

Most people who join CTFO are not adept at selling products or talking to other people.

It is essential that before you join CTFO, see to it that your sponsor is capable of taking care of new distributors.

I am not saying that you will need to rely on your sponsor all the time.

But, you'll be relying on the training provided by your sponsor.

If your sponsor is just like you, another new distributor who knows nothing about training and grooming new distributors, and still uses the traditional methods to find prospects...

You'll end up being stuck and you'll most likely quit.

#3 Wrong Mindset

If you want to join CTFO because you think (or led to believe) that this is where you can make easy money, you are mistaken.

Yes, you can make money with CTFO, but it will take time, hard work, patience, and skills. This is not a Get-Rich-Quick program, and nothing is.

#4 Lack Of Skills

Speaking of skills, if you hope to make a living and realize your dream life with Changing The Future Outcome, you must master the skills of selling, recruitment, and managing a team of sales reps.

Get another look at CTFO's compensation plan.

It is no mystery that for you to make a lot of money, you will need to sell tons of products with the help of a large sales team.

You cannot hope to succeed alone.

Should You Join As CTFO Distributor?

I'll be honest with you. Even if you think that CTFO products are super beneficial for everyone and the compensation plan looks solid, not everyone will feel the same. 

No matter if the products are extraordinary and affordable, you'll be surprised that most people will still say "NO."

That's unless the person has a severe medical condition that no medicine can cure, then they will resort to trying every possible solution.

"People don't like to be sold" and "People hate to change."

To get people to buy CBD oil, it is either they will buy it at their own will because they need the products, or the salesperson is just so convincing that they have to buy it.

Which leads me to these questions:

  • Do you want to be a salesperson? 
  • Do you have any good experience with CTFO CBD products, and do you believe it can help other people too?

The CTFO business opportunity will work best for people who have good experience with its products and those who can confidently educate their customers about them to make regular sales.

So, if selling, recruiting, persuasion, and managing a team is not your cup of tea, and you are still looking for ways to earn money...

Then, I recommend that you check out this program.

It is the program that allowed me to quit my full-time job and still earn a full-time passive income from home.

Meanwhile...

If you are confident that Changing The Future Outcome is the business for you, then I would suggest that you to learn more about Attraction Marketing because it can help you remove the problem of not having enough leads.

Thank you for taking the time to read this CTFO review. I hope that I've provided you with the information you need.

If you think this is useful, please, share it because others might need this information.

  1. This review is about CTFO Corporate and their employees, not any MLM associate or downline seller. I feel sorry for those folks.

    There are better alternatives out there at lower cost, better product and with no shipping charges. Do your research, they’re easy to find under searches for “best” or “most effective.” CTFO doesn’t even come up in the search I did using those parameters. Some even provide 24/7 customer support.

    CTFO takes way too long for “expedited” shipping and even longer (11 days or longer) for standard shipping. They charge USPS Express rates for expedited shipping, yet the product takes 5 (sometimes 4) days to arrive. Expedited? Really? Their standard shipping costs more than USPS Priority and yet I’m still waiting. My order was placed 12 days ago.

    It takes them two days to process an order and hand it off to a shipper like DHL. Then, it gets delivered to USPS for final delivery. This adds at least two days to the process.

    They have lousy, unresponsive customer service. They are not truthful when telling you when you can expect your order. They make stuff up that is easily verifiable by the tracking number they provide from USPS.

    When it would be easier to tell the truth, they don’t. The people I know who used to sell this product are done with this company for obvious reasons.

  2. CTFO is NOT good for the Consumer of CBD Products, it is ONLY good for those that are Signed up as “Associates” They charge 120 Bucks for the 10x pure….the thing is It SHOULD be Cheaper, But it cannot be, Because Everyone that signs up, and signs up people Below them…ALL get a Little Piece of the Pie….SO they HAVE to keep the Products at a HIGHER Price, SO ALL of the Puppets can make a little Money…the ones at the VERY TOP are Raking in the Coin from ALL of the Minions below them…the Consumer on the other hand…is Paying MORE money than the Product is worth..I am an Associate of CTFO, and I could not in good Conscious sign people up under me, Because it is NOT Fare to the Consumer…it is ONLY FARE for the Associates…WHEN I Signed up, it was cheaper…But in less that a year the price has Become Ridiculous. There are MANY Fantastic CBD Products out there that are CHEAPER and JUST as GOOD, and you are not forced to Join their Little Club and have an Auto shipment EVERY Month in order to participate in the Program…IT May not be a SCAM, But it is Extremely UNFAIR to the Consumer that is on a Limited income

  3. Hi Jack

    Interesting review!! Although you do seem to have a bias against CTFO, or am I mistaken?

    I believe that you stated that it is necessary to but $47.97 worth of products per month in order to get commission. That is to get all of the levels of commission. Whether or not you buy any product, you will still get 20% of the CV from every order made from your downline. And it is FREE to join!! With the very best quality of CBD oil which you can buy and the only place where you can buy 10XPure CBD oil, what’s not to like?!?

    • Hi Chrissie,

      Thanks for dropping by. If you read carefully, I have nothing against the company or the products, in fact, I think it is commendable that the founders do not take salary from the company, that’s why the company can sell its products at a low price, and with such quality. Whatever you said, I fully agree, you may have misunderstood.

      Cheers!

  5. Wow. There are many totally false and inaccurate statements in this thread. Jack, I appreciate your honest reviews but some of the people commenting are really spreading inaccurate info. Hempworx is still supplied by Gen Canna. Always has been. I just got off the phone with Johnathan at Gen Canna. They absolutely did NOT drop Hempworx. Secondly -HW is one of only 13 companies that is US Hemp Authority certified. If that doesn’t speak volumes about the quality, I don’t know what does. It is by far more effective than CTFO oil in our experience. My husband was hip pain free after 20 minutes with HW 750. Not so with CTFO. I also have used both apple stem face creams and HW is definitely nicer with regard to scent ( there is no scent with HW) texture, and effectiveness. As a 59 year old woman who trains horses and is outdoors a lot, I am a good judge of facial products. HW will be adding about 18 new products this year and will be continually growing. My Daily Choice ( HW ) experienced 1300% growth and sales revenue over 100 million dollars in 2018. They were ranked 8th out of all Direct Sales Companies. It would seem that CTFO has a beautiful website and some brainwashed affiliates . Please stop spreading the lies. As an industry, we should be supportive and always taking the high road.

    Reply
    • Jen – I was with HW and left. We all have our reasons for sticking with a company. Personally, I left HW as the quality went downhill. I was not feeling the relief from my back pain as I was at first and when I got to the end of a bottle and felt like I was taking pure sugar and saw the crystals from the sugar on the bottle I started reconsidering HW. At one time they DID change suppliers and when that happened along with not feeling the effects or the oil any longer, I stopped taking the product and I also stopped promoting the products (and I was up in rank). I personally am not a fan of “legs”. If you do not know what you are doing you will get screwed. What does HW do with that $20 registration fee? All of the money from your larger leg and the $20 goes back to the owners. I preferred a company that cares about their reps and gets paid the same as us. One owner from HW actually showed his/her paycheck on FB live. Very arrogant. Also called some of the reps “turds”. That was the last straw. I went to a more mature company that is run by people who truly care about the reps. It all comes down to how you feel about the company and can you see yourself doing this long term. CTFO is a better company in my opinion due to their experience and maturity. They also have an exclusive, patented 10xPure that is just another step in the CBD industry and puts them ahead of the others. Wishing you much success!

      Reply
    • Sorry Jen but I couldn’t help but to laugh at some of the lies that YOU are spreading. And some of your remarks are quite laughable as well. I was involved with Josh and Jenna and Hempjerx once upon a time. After being lied to, about being reimbursed for shipping product sent to me in error, by a company rep, I started looking for another source for my CBD oil. I thank God I found CTFO! After seeing identical pictures, on BOTH Hempjerx and CTFO’s websites, I knew they were being supplied by the exact same manufacturer. I called my upline to tell them I was leaving and thanked them for all they’d done to help me. I was shocked when they tried lying to me and saying CTFO’s oils weren’t as good as theirs. And it was only AFTER they knew that I knew they were both being supplied by the same source that they fessed up and admitted it.
      Keep paying 30-40% more for identical products if you wish. I’m inclined to believe that’s the epitome of being “brainwashed”.

  8. Hi, is this legal to buy and use. Is it legal to sell if you become an associate? I just want to make sure on this aspect. Also, will someone fail a drug test if using? Please advise, thank you.

    Reply
    • Hey Patsy,

      Just wanted to let you know that this is by no means a legal advice.

      With that said, it really depends on where you reside in. If you live in a state where CBD is legal, then you will have no worries at all.

      But, if you live in a state where it isn’t clear legally about the CBD, then it is best not to use it before going for a drug test.

      The legality of usage and for re-sale depends on the state you live in as well. For example, I live in a country where CBD is considered illegal, so I can’t buy it and I can’t use it.

      Hope this helps!

      Cheers!

      • CBD can be extracted from many plants and not just HEMP; which is a variation of cannabis. It does have 0.3% THC unless it is ISOLATE, then it is ZERO percent. OIl is the medium in which you mix it. CBD is an EXTRACT not an oil.

      Here is my website to order your CTFO products.
      (Link removed – If you’d like to contact Gary, reply to this comment)

      Scroll all the way to the bottom where there is a big button to “shop as a customer”. Make sure to read to terms and conditions, privacy policy, and policies and procedures for the company. Those are found all the way at the bottom on the page in the left hand corner. You will have to enter some of your information but you can review the products before you buy them. By doing this, you will be able to get them at wholesale price.

      By signing up as an associate, you will only get the percentage off if you enroll in auto-shipping which means you will get your products as often as you want, and it will keep billing you automatically. That’s the only way to receive the associate discount.

      I hope this helps!

      You are most certainly welcome to buy on my ctfo site. You can take advantage of a 5% discount if you select something for auto ship. Try a product, if you like it and it helps you, great. If not return within 60 days for a full refund. Good luck and best wishes

  12. TOO MUCH FOCUS ON MLMs & SCAM OPERATORS:

    HEMP/CBD OIL PRODUCT DUE DILIGENCE:
    Determine What You Want & Understand What You Are Buying

    Thousands of CBD products in multiple forms are available online that vary by source, process, content, % CBD and quality, including scam type MLMs. A late 2017 study by JAMA found that only 26 of 84 CBD product samples purchased online from 31 different companies contained the amount claimed on their labels. Eighteen had THC levels high enough for impairment while a quarter of the products had less CBD that advertised. Similarly, FDA testing found several CBD products with no CBD. CBD content and quality are different. See Consumer Reports for more.

    Marijuana/THC & Hemp/CBD Products Are Quite Different

    Both Are Made From the Cannabis Sativa Plant, But Different Strains

    The Cannabis Sativa Plant Contains More than 100 Cannabinoids

    THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) & CBD (Cannabinol) Are the Dominant Cannabinoids

    THC Is Psychoactive & CBD Isn’t

    Marijuana Products Have High THC Content

    Hemp/CBD Products Have Low THC Content & Wide Ranging CBD Content

    State & Federal Law Conflict On Legality Of Product

    Marijuana/THC Products Are Not Legal At the Federal Level

    Confusion Over Industrial Hemp Legality At the Federal Level
    -Must Have Less Than 0.3% THC
    -Not Psychoactive
    -May Be Legal, But Not FDA Approved
    -Often Sold As Nutritional/Dietary Supplement

    Details Vary By State, But CBD Generally Legal At The State Level

    Unregulated & Wide Ranging Infant Industry

    CBD Market Has Huge Potential & Is Growing Rapidly

    Hemp CBD Industry Information Varies Widely
    -Often Confusing, Conflicting & Lacking Credibility

    Broad Line Of CBD Products/Vendors Available Online, Including Many MLMs & Scam Operators

    Retail Brick & Mortar Distribution Of CBD Products Seems Limited At This Time
    -Pricing, Source, CBD Content & Quality Varies Widely

    The Vast Majority Of CBD Products Are Not Grown (Hemp) Or Manufactured By The Selling Vendor

    Meaningful Vendor/Product Reviews Very Limited/Not Available

    Often Viewed As A “Buyer Beware” Purchase

    Hemp Seed Oil & Hemp CBD Oil Are Very Different

  13. I can’t seem to find the link to the CTFO website in your review. What is the company website? Not the associate websites but the actual one for the company where all their info about the MLM and the lab test results?

    Also, where exactly can I see those lab results for myself?

      You can see labels and reviews here (affiliate link removed – General site link: https://myctfocbd.com) without joining or buying anything. You could also call the company and ask if you could purchase from them. Good luck

    • Let me correct you… CBD doesnt “CURE” anything but it IS the catalist to get the Endocanabinoid system to start working better, and once this happens, is when people may start to feel better… the ECS is responsible for balancing our body systems …. and THAT is the basics on how CBD CAN HELP with wellness and people feeling better…

  15. Okay Jack – you should have dug a little deeper.

    #1 – I WAS with HempWorx. I got out because: from what I understood Gencanna cut all ties with them and that is when their product went downhill; the product changed and became gross and full of sugar, so much that it crystallized near the end of the bottle; the product stopped working; their last lab results were in 2017 – none after ties were allegedly cut with Gencanna; no customer service; was told by the owners they were legal in 150 countries including Australia and Canada and THEY WERE NOT and the affiliates had to pay for that lie; and a huge entry fee into the company and you had to maintain it every month in order to keep earning at your qualified level.

    #2 – I AM in CTFO and could not be happier. You are dealing with ADULTS that have been in the business and know how to run a business. Their compensation plan is very lucrative if you work it just like with ANY business. The lab that CTFO uses for testing that you said did not exist does exist. Go to http://www.marketwired.com/press-release/nutrafuels-ntfu-opens-new-division-precision-analytic-testing-cbd-cannabidiol-analytic-otc-pink-ntfu-2238773.htm. It is a division of Nutrafuels. DIG DEEPER before you accuse a company of forging documents which is what you did.

    #3 – Not all MLMs are scams. Is Amway a scam? Is Young Living a scam? Are you calling all MLMs a scam? This company is customer driven. If you want to take advantage of the MLM just as with HempWorx, you can but do not have to. You can sign up just as a customer but at least you will not be purged every 60 days as HempWorx does even if you paid the $20.00 to become an affiliate but just did not make another purchase in 60 days which happened often. Most of the time people would buy 3 to 4 bottles at a time just to qualify as Director but not need to make another purchase in 60 days so guess what – THEY WERE PURGED. There went their $20.00.

    #4 – The owners of CTFO, Stuart and Steve Finger, DO NOT take a paycheck. They work the system just like the affiliates and some affiliates actually make more money than they do.

    #5 – Yes it is difficult when there is no “obligation” to join to get people to purchase the product and no you cannot make claims and correct CBD oil is not FDA approved – yet. But the oils speak for themselves. I have compared HempWorx to CTFO and hands down there is a HUGE difference and CTFO has a superior product. You can smell the hemp when you open the bottle and all you smell from HempWorx is Peppermint.

    Bottom line, MLMs are not a scam. You work it just like you do any business and if you work at it like you would if you bought a Subway or whatever, you will succeed. You just do not have to shell out the money that you would for a brick and mortar business and it does not happen overnight for anyone.

    Your review was very FOR HEMPWORX which is not fair whatsoever. HempWorx was the worst for making claims so why are you signaling out CTFO?? CBDs are new and companies like HempWorx and CTFO are still working with the legalities of selling it so give CTFO a break as you are with HempWorx. CTFO had its compliance dept. in place long before HempWorx did. If you are going to review a company, you need to be in the companies you are reviewing or interview people that are in the company or ideally unbiased. You cannot find out everything on-line. And if people take these reviews seriously because the person writing them did not take the time to find out all the facts and overlooked a big one and said CTFO was basically faking their lab results, you are literally giving out false info which leads to costly mistakes and is actually slander – you might want to retract that little statement in your review.

    I have more but CTFO does not have to defend itself against HempWorx and to call CTFO a scam is WRONG as you did not gather all the facts to do so. Just because this is online does not give anyone the right to do a shoddy job of investigating a company and then posting false information online.

    Bottom line – you are for some reason stuck on HempWorx and because of that you should not be reviewing any other CBD company as you are skewing this review in your HempWorx’s and your favor.

    • Hey L.P.,

      So glad that you commented on this.

      I’ve always wanted to update this review because it was written months ago, and I think it is time for that. I’ll work on it this week or the next.

      Here’s my comment on your pointers:

      1. I am aware of this and will update this review accordingly.
      2. I understand that they are not using Precision Analytics anymore because the lab still has relation to CTFO, and it is not considered third party. I know that they have switched to another independent lab for the testing.
      3. Totally agree that not all MLM are scams. I didn’t mentioned that in the review 🙂
      4. I get that.
      5. Thanks for sharing
      6. My review was not written for HempWorx. I am not a HempWorx distributor as well. I’m just sharing what I’ve learned through my research. This opinion is dated far back to 2017 or early 2018. So, I gotta update it now, given that so much has changed. I didn’t say that CTFO is faking their results, I’m only sharing that it is possible to fake results. I did gather the facts, but that was outdated, and I seek your understanding. I run a website that has tons of content in it, and I am constant updating them, it is not an easy task for one person. CTFO is next on my list. And my info isn’t false by the way, just outdated.
      Bottom line – You shouldn’t judge too early 🙂

  16. I have done tons of research and talked with a lot of people who have tried multiple CBD brands. And I keep coming back to the same one you have in your first chart, Lazarus Naturals. They are doing it right and doing it cheaper then any others out there. So we started selling it in our stores among others. So far everyone that tries it comes back requesting Lazarus. They even offer huge discounts to disabled vets. If its top quality why pay more.

      • Please please do review on Zilis Pur 7 and Ultra cell products. Lots of confusion related to bioavailability. They (Zilis) claim most other products are only 6-18% bioavailable and their products (Pur7 and Ultra Cell) are 85% bioavailable due to “purzorb”technology and “micellization” process. I have Read everything on many other product sites and I find nothing that addresses issue of the bioavailability issue which is critical when you consider strength and dosing. Many consumers get confused by the “500, 750, 1000 mg”. They don’t understand that means that much in a 1 or even often a. 2 oz bottle. So if absorption is 6%you’d need a lot more than 1 cc to get an adequate low level base dose. This is THE CRITICAL issue that keeps being overlooked. I’m a psychiatric nurse practitioner and own my own Integrative psych practice. I taught neuropsychopharm for years and know the value of the endocannabinoid system. I’d LOVE some answers from top brands on issue of bioavailability, as measured by other than company ads. Disclosure: I am an “ambassador” for Zilis. Enrolled under a relative. I sell to some of my patients, but only sell for what paid. I have ethical issue with selling to pts and bumping price. I only started selling it to get discount on mine and my husband and daughter. I really Hate the constant ….what feels like attempted brainwashing or manipulation’ ie. ‘’participate in every Tuesday night ‘FREEDOM CALL’…. feels yucky and I’ve never done it but get the reminder of like Clockwork. I’m not meant to sell products. I’m an outlier. I just want best option for my patients.

    It also took me less than 5 minutes to determine that CTFO produces their product in Florida so it makes perfect sense to me to do the product testing there.

  20. One day i’m going to read where the know-nots don’t offer their mocking bird run-down on a plant that is Not a cannabis plant, Not a mj plant, and Not a mmj plant. The plant is an Asian herb and according to Webster, it’s a HEMP plant. There’s no such thing as medical marijuana. The virus is the illusion of communication. Cannabis and the slang word to avoid, marijuana, are one in the same – the hemp plant’s destination. As in, the flowering stage at the end of the ANNUAL grown outside season of NO PESTICIDES -hence no man-made toxins to test for. Only the uninformed would go to a dispensary to buy the same size little nubs with the weird-ass names – God Bud, Cush, Purple Erkle . . . weak facsimile wanna-be. Man-handled from seed to sale. Disected, analysied, packaged, stamped, taxed . . . blah, blah, blah.

    Fiction can only create more fiction. Whoo hoo, a gubbernut high. Reminds me of a Barry Manilow concert.

  22. Jack you have a done a great job in putting this together and your right in many things but from my research on cbd oil and not Hemp Oil that you stated numerous times as Hemp oil has little or no benefits in it and it’s not anything like cbd oil which has numerous benefits .
    From my research on ctfo and cbd in general I have come to the conclusion that C.T.F.O have an extreamly good quality cbd oil with extreamly high mls of cbd in it and is by far the least expensive cbd on the market .

  26. Jack–

    As a leader of a rapidly growing CTFO organization, many who came from HempWorx, it is important that you have the most current info. The lab you site, Precision Analytics Testing, is no longer being used to test CTFO CBD Oil. The lab now being used is ISO Accredited (ISO Accreditation # 97164). The lab is EVIO Labs. EVIO labs has certified the quality and purity of CTFO CBD Oil. You will not be able to criticize EVIO as somehow on the take in exchange for falsified lab reports, as you implied about Precision Analytics. I don’t believe that was happening with Precision Analytics but I know it is not happening with EVIO.

    Let me address the issue of our low prices. Your main contention is that there must be something wrong with the quality since the price is so low. The founders and owners of CTFO did something brilliant in the way the structured the company. Instead of taking hundreds of thousands of dollars in executive compensation, these gentlemen earn their income exclusively from the compensation plan, just like all the Associates. Now, admittedly, they are at the top of the structure (as they should be) but they are staking their income on the success of the company as a whole. Because they have eliminated a huge financial burden from the company’s bottom line, they are able to pass the savings on to CTFO Associates through a powerful pay plan and by pricing our CBD products at extremely competitive prices. Even compared to CBD oil sold on the open market (non-MLM) we are very competitively priced and often even lower priced.

    Everyone complains about MLM companies overpricing their products in order to payout big commissions to their top earners. This is a legitimate complaint about the industry. But, when a company comes along with a way to payout excellent commissions while making their Associates competitive, your red flags go up and the assumption is that they must be hiding something from us or selling inferior quality products.

    Well, sorry to blow your story, Jack, but in the case of CTFO the owners of the company are doing it the right way and the net result is that CTFO Associates can face virtually any competition with our quality and price and, yes, our business opportunity.

    Since you were so complimentary of CTFO’s compensation plan (justifiably so), and now that we have eliminated your primary argument (questionable lab reports), I hope that those on this thread will join CTFO as quickly as possible. For anyone who wants to get in on the CBD action and benefit from our awesome CBD product line an business plan, come on in, the water is perfect.

  27. Yikes, the product should be the main concern of what you are recommending to your friends and family. If you make a few dollars helping someone feel better then great. I received pain relief from the CBD I purchased, I was able to avoid surgery due to the oil. I don’t expect to get rich or retire on this program, but do feel comfortable sharing my results and referring friends and family to the products. The product should be the concern, my opinion.

  28. Let me mention first that I am a a Chemical Engineer by training so I am familiar with the processes including CO2 extraction they use to extract CBD from industrial Hemp. I think when buying CBD oil , the most important factor has to be the purity of the oil. What I am talking about here are impurities in parts per million that can slip through the extraction process. These can include solvents, trace metals and other impurities from the extraction process. In addition if pesticides are used some could be present in the industrial hemp from which CBD oil is extracted.
    It is thus important that the analysis is accurate and uses equipment that can detect impurities in trace amounts. Since such impurities can cause serious health issues over several years,
    There are currently 4 states only that regulate CBD oil: Alaska, Oregon.Washington and Colorado. If one sells CBD oil in these states they must test the product in an approved Laboratory within the state. In essence CBD oil is treated like any medicine you buy in these states and you can be sure of its purity.
    Addressing the CTFO issue: First the testing lab , precision analytical testing is a subsidiary of Nutrafuels which is listed on the OTCQB. This is NOT the New York stock exchange but a minor exchange that companies that cannot meet main exchange requirements are listed on.
    This does not necessarily mean the company is suspect, however the lack of trading volume indicates the lack of interest in the shares.
    In addition the testing lab was formed one year ago and does not have the experience of a more established lab with no oversight. A logical question is Why would CTFO use a Lab in Florida when they are in California. Why not use a Lab in Washington which is right next to them and where CBD is regulated. That way they are assured of the purity of the oil.
    I think the choice must be related to cost as Jack points out . They have to cut cost to make a profit and be able to compensate their associates.
    I am interested in CBD oil due to a chronic pain I have which it may help. after extensive research and being approached by a CTFO rep in my area I opted for the above reasons to not buy from CTFO but from a supplier in Colorado that uses a reputable testing lab in a state that regulates CBD.
    Ignoring the purity issue may not affect your health right away but I do not want to find out that I am having kidney or liver problems or other issues years down the road when it is too late.
    I can go into more details about the testing posted on CTFO site but I do not want to get too technical and lengthen the response too much.

    Thanks

  30. Just a mom with a teenager on the spectrum. She was on Rx for anxiety, depression, anger, OCD. She started just unraveling. Smart girl decided she would refuse medications but not wean slowly and just had such a rough year. We found CBD through a behavioral therapist who sells Kannaway. I quietly read all the testimonials and read articles and watched videos. We signed up for CBD and within two weeks saw a change. Within two month deep depression, anxiety, insomnia, cutting. Gone. She still has OCD which is so manageable and quirks. But she’s healthy and happy. I’m Leary to switch her as she’s doing amazing. But this Mom would like to save money too. That said, which would you recommend for it’s reputation and pureness and qaulity vs price. Thanks so much!

I left Hempworx because of the business plan….lots of hard work for very little compensation, I loved their oil though. With CTFO the business plan is really good and they offer discounts on oils up front to associates and customers. The oils are $10 less a bottle than Hempworx. The oil is amazing! It has changed my life and I see it changing others lives daily. ~Sue

  31. After digging through their paperwork in regards to their third party testing I was able to find the third party that does ctfo’s testing. It is a sub company that is a part of a larger company that is also publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange. I was also able to find information about the parent company on Bloomberg as well. parent company is called NutraFuels Inc., if you search that then you will find the Precision Analytics. it is also listed at the bottom of all their test results in which you can find on the ctfo website as well, if using careful searching instead of just typing into Google. As it took me literally 15 minutes to find this information. So hopefully now you can update and reflect that in fact their third party testing is legit and is an actual company especially since this is the main part of your review and which you say that this company cannot be trusted. Feel free to email me if you needed help researching or gaining more information on this correction in your review.

I know Nutrafuels has built a large mfg plant in Florida and the CTFO product is being shipped from Florida.

  33. There are so many lies in Annette’s comment it scares me. I am astounded at how these CTFO representatives are taught to manipulate people into thinking so highly of their company. Just to lure them over to their side.

    PLEASE DO YOUR RESEARCH.

    The only thing Hempworx affiliates are scared of is people listening and believing the lies that CTFO representatives are telling consumers in order to “win” them over.

    1. GenCanna is our supplier. Always has been – still is.

    2. We have several products. We are a master at pure organic cbd hemp oil. No need to add several products to this amazing line up. We also have several amazing supplement sprays under our parent company My Daily Choice.

    3. You get what you pay for.

    4. There is a one time $20 activation fee to set up your website. No more fees ever again.

    5. Hempworx has the best compensation plans in network marketing PERIOD — not just in the cbd oil industry. We get paid 8 WAYS!! It’s amazing!!

    The legendary Robert Hollis came out of retirement to join Hempworx. That speaks volumes.

    6. There is no required buy in — you can earn your rank in pay — but how cool is it that the option to buy in at a higher level in pay??

    And trust me — you’ll want your oil every month!! You can also sell the bottles you purchase and make all of your money back plus some!

    7. If you need 60 days to tell if your oil is working… something is wrong.

    8. I talk to customer service all the time — so this point is just an unnecessary low blow. If you’re hiring all these new people — are you sure it wasn’t CTFO with the customer service problem.

    9. Hempworx does not require an auto shipment. However, you can set one if you’d like!

    10. Hempworx has an amazing upbeat culture where we pride ourselves upon helping and serving others.

    Bonus. Why do you need a good mlm attorney? I think you know why. 😉

    PS. All this investing would make me a bit nervous to join your company. That’s just my opinion.

    Feel free to ask any questions you may have! There’s so much more to know about this topic, but I choose to be tactful and not blast the information online.

    Best wishes,

  34. Great article! I sell CBD oil, but not through CTFO or any of the other MLM companies. I like to buy at true wholesale prices so I can sell at a reasonable retail price instead of purchasing an inflated price to cover a compensation plan.
    You’re right. I’ve seen tons of reps posting all over FB and social media, making medical claims. And the very few that are wording their sentences properly, they aren’t posting the FDA disclosure at the end.
    When the FDA gets ready to shut down CTFO, if I was the owner of CTFO, I would press legal charges to all of the reps that were in violation.
    On the bright side, other small businesses and myself should see an increase in sales. 🙂

    • In CTFO clearly states in terms and conditions the fda hasn’t evaluated the statements listed on all product containers .PLUS they clearly state THESE PRODUCTS ARE NOT INTENDED TO DIAGNOSE TREAT,CURE OR PREVENT ANY DISEASES.They do NOT claim to be the cure all it helps manage pain and things like that Reps should get in trouble not the companyIf your going to sell a product give your customer all the facts

      • Hi Alychia,

        Unfortunately, I have to disagree with you.

        Reps are not going to be the one who gets punished. It is going to be the company because they can’t manage their Reps.

        Many MLM companies are being sued by the FTC because their Reps make false claims about the business.

        It is a known fact that MLM companies could be caught into these lawsuits because of their Reps, even if the company has a legal disclaimer.

        Cheers!

    • Maybe CTFO didnt make it clear they needed to post the FDA statement. I joined CTFO but never followed thru with it because it was complicated..I was just lost..when all I really wanted to do was sell the product, but the whole thing seemed to be about recruiting buyers of the product. I like what your doing but as I’m on Social Security so I don’t think I can afford to out right purchase it like you did. But I need to do something to supplement my income before I lose everything. I just can’t keep living way before poverty level and who knows what will happen to SS in the fall..they’re talking about gutting it, so I know I have to do something..the problem is..figuring out which opportunities are the real thing? ..Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated..thank you.

        In my opinion, the best way to grow your network marketing business online is through attraction marketing.

        It allows you to attract an endless stream of highly target leads without even meeting them.

        With regards to the legalities, just avoid making medical claims in your marketing messages, and you should be fine.

        Hope this helps.

        Cheers!

  35. I am a CTFO customer and associate. If your not with us your missing out. I love the products. I have tried many other products including all the mentioned and the ones with THC. The potency of CTFO is the best. The 1500mg drops is the best deal for the dollar you can get on the market. Others like it may be cheaper and that’s because they dont have half the potency. I have ran a chainsaw for 12 years and my hands hurt so bad. The deap healing pain cream with emu oil is the only thing aside from prescription pain killers that dulls out the pain. CTFO has made it possible for me to function without the fog of Oxycodone.

  36. Wow, I get that your an affiliate of Hempworx and are looking to get an edge on the competition, but this isn’t the way to go. You really should have signed up for the free CTFO account, if only to get the information that you didn’t seem to try hard in getting. The link you provided in a reply, the Vice article, is so general that it could very well be applied to Hempworx as well. Also, the claims you’re throwing out against CTFO and their business practices with lack of proof may be borderline defamation and CTFO may have a case.

    Reply
    • Hi Kelly,

      Firstly, I don’t promote HempWorx, nor CTFO. They are direct competitors and I am not earning a single cent from either of those companies.

      Secondly, like you said, I could have skewed this review to a more positive light on CTFO just to earn commission from them, but I chose not to after my research because I feel something is off with this program, in my opinion.

      Thirdly, the vice article, Hempworx is lab tested by a reputable third-party that has all the credibility online. You can easily source for the contact information. But I can’t find any information regarding the laboratory for CTFO. If you do have information about it, please share and I will reassess.

      I have the same reply to Natale.

  37. Hello Jack,

    I was curious about CTFO and This shared some light on it. My wife and I actually are with Kannaway. Just so you know we are tripple lab tested and we have an amazing compensation plan. I have never ever seen a company with a minimum guaranteed income. Of course with anything a certain volume is required to maintain it.

    Warm Regards,

    • I’m actually looking for a CBD oil program, I signed up for CTFO but it was to complicated, and it seemed to be more about recruiting than helping people. I didn’t even know other companies besides CTFO were out there til I read this review. I’d really appreciate some more information about Kannaway and how it compares to Hempworx. Thank you

      Reply
      • My suggestion is to stay with CTFO. I was with Hempworx and there is a lot of trouble in paradise there. The compensation plan is horrible. It’s the binary plan where you have to try and balance both legs and then only get paid on your weaker leg, not all of your sales. It’s frustrating to say the least. I joined CTFO and have been super impressed with the folks there. I have a lot more people interested in CTFO than they were with HW. CTFO has 4 strengths of oil…. HW only 2. I poured my heart into HW for 8 months. All I can say is I’m glad I found CTFO. We are all about helping people in my group. ~sue

  38. They are all over priced. I sell my products cheaper than any of the companies posted in this review. This definitely seems like a pyramid scheme in my opinion. It seems like all these companies want to pretend that they want to help people but they want to over charge and just line there pockets…

  39. Every Network Marketing Company has the same problems as you say CTFO has there is nothing new or different!! Just try the products and see if they work of you! CTFO CBD Hemp Oil products work of me and the comp plan pays, that’s all that matters!

  40. CTFO has fantastic products. 3 days after taking CBD by CTFO my tremors stopped and for the first time since my stroke I was able to walk again without assistance. My customers have posted awesome reviews. I haven’t had 1 unhappy customer. Many thank me for introducing them to CTFO’s CBD products and tell me for the first time in years they are pain free. Don’t judge our products unless you have tried them

    Reply
  41. Enough is Enough. Tired of hearing about the deceit and lies. At some point you have to take a stand and NOT BE BULLIED. TOP 10. I understand why Hempworx Reps are scared. They have lost a TON of their market share. At the end of the day competition is healthy. That is why you see a McDonalds on the same road as a Burger King. CBD is going to be a BILLION dollar product and there is enough room for everyone to succeed. We wish those who choose Hempworx success. Heck, we are in the same industry promoting CBD. But to see Hempworx reps stoop so low is sad.

    Bottom line, many Hempworx associates have already joined CTFO, and many are in the process of coming over, because the following Top 10 Reason. Trust me this list could be much larger.

    1. CTFO has the of the absolute Highest Quality CBD products on Planet Earth. PERIOD. Our manufacturer buys some of the raw ingredients from multiple sources Gencanna (among other sources) and that is why we were able to show the Isolate and Full Spectrum lab results that were done on those raw ingredients. Something Hempworx cannot and one of the many reasons our product is much better. Our manufacturer used to supply Hempworx but no longer does (for reasons that we choose not to discuss; but rest assure it was our manufacturer who ended the relationship). We could destroy Hempworx if we shared the reason the manufactured stopped supplying Hempworx, but that is not our way of doing business. Our 3rd Party Independent Lab Results speak for themselves. In addition, the many Hempworx customers who have come over to CTFO say the health benefits and results they received is so much better.

    2. CTFO has an amazing variety of 24 CBD products, many more than Hempworx does. This is a huge benefit for both our associates and our customers

    3. CTFO pricing is so much better compared to every single HempWorx product. People want the best product at the most affordable price.

    4. CTFO offers Free websites and Zero Cost to become an affiliate. Hempworx charges $20. Wonder who keeps the 20 bucks?

    5. CTFO has a much better compensation plan. Everyone WINS with CTFO.

    Binaries are HORRIBLE and most people never make money in them. PERIOD. Binaries have insane breakage to the company. That means the COMPANY KEEPS THE $$$.

    – With CTFO the compensation plan is simple and designed to work for everyone including the little guy without much or any experience.
    – No left leg or right legs to build and having to make decisions of where to place people or balancing.
    – The system automatically places everyone at the best position for you to maximize your compensation.
    – We pay out 100% of CV. No Breakage. Complete Transparency.

    IMPORTANT – Our leaders make money GUILT free because they do so by lifting up others who also make money, rather than making money off others.

    6. CTFO has Lower Requirements to Maintain Maxing out the Commission plan
    – With HempWorx to maximize the commission you have to buy in at $599 and then continue to order an additional $199 per month.
    – With CTFO there is no buy in. Everyone starts the same. The only requirement to maximize your commission is to order $47.74 per month worth of products or have 10 active customers or affiliates and no personal purchase is necessary.

    7. CTFO offers a 60 Day Guarantee. Hempworx offers a 30 Day Money Back guarantee.

    8. CTFO has a real customer service staff with people answering the phones. CTFO has already hired new employees and will be hiring more down the road. We are moving into a brand new building soon to handle the employee growth. Hempworx does not have anyone that will pick up a phone.

    9. CTFO does NOT require an autoship. Hempworx requires a monthly autoship.

    10. CTFO owners only get paid in the compensation plan. The exact same way every other CTFO Associate is. Also, there is a MASSIVE difference in the type of CULTURE of the owners. Simply watch a YouTube video message of a HW owner and you will clearly see this. Of course people resonate with different people.

    Bonus – CTFO is being built to last. We just hired the number MLM attorney in the world, have attracted the best compliance people in the industry and setting ourselves up for massive international expansion.

    PS – While Hempworx marketing site currently looks flashy…. CTFO just invested 1/2 million dollars and in less than 90 days we will ROCK the industry with our new look and feel.

  42. I am guessing you have someone or you are working with Hempworx. It is sad that a company and you are spreading such lies about CTFO CBD. If you go to their website, there are lab results. What is fact also, is that CTFO CBD is a combination of Isolate and Full Spectrum making it a more potent CBD % than anyone else. I have tried others and even medical as I have my card and I can tell you that CTFO CBD 1500mg and their 2oz Ultimate Healing Cream with 150mg in it, has done more to ease my pain and help me sleep than anything else on the market. I tried CTFO because they offer a 60 day money back guarantee. I did not have to use it, as the products I am using work. So before you make such claims, do your homework.

    Reply
    • Unfortunately, I think you guessed wrongly. I don’t earn anything or know anyone who promotes Hempworx.

      And, I wrote this review based on my research and findings. Honestly, the lab results can be compromised. Watch this video.

      I knew that CTFO has a lab test result, but the test is done by an unknown company that I can’t find any info on the internet. Search “Precision Analytic Testing LLC” and you’ll find nothing!

      Whereas the lab test result done for Hempworx is by a company which information can be easily found. Search “Proverde Laboratories” – website: http://www.proverdelabs.com.

      Homework done? I think so. Thanks for stopping by anyway.

        I appreciate this comprehensive review, as I just signed up to be a CTFO associate today.

        However, you repeatedly mention that CTFO is not tested by a 3rd party independent lab – in both the article and your comments – and claim that Precision Analytic Testing LLC. doesn’t exist when you Google it.

        If you scroll down to the bottom of the lab results posted on CTFO’s website for all of their products (and each results sheet is only 1-2 pages long), you’ll see “Precision Analytic Testing LLC. a Division of NutraFuels Inc.” If you google this, NutraFuels Inc is easy to find and verify.

  43. Thank you for your review. It confirms many of my suspicions and re enforces my experiences with MLM companies. I’ve tried three, unsuccessfully.
    I’m not convinced about CBD oil unless medical trials are done. Anyone can write a fake testimony. As you wrote, the quality would have to be to quite low in order to sustain the business. I am on many meds but don’t want to risk interactions.

  44. I have been approached on Facebook to buy CTFO products including CBD oil . I had a very simple question regarding ingredients of the cdb oil and could never get an answer, I was always referred to the sales pitch. I became suspicious, why did I need to go through a 15 minute presentation or read thru product info for a simple answer the seller, John DeAntonio, should know? At that point I knew something was not quite right when he only wanted to talk to me by private message. I told him that anything could be discussed in open forum or not at all. I guess it’s not at all since he said he had been to so much trouble for me and all I did was a bitch. My first thought was product misrepresentation and then pyramid scheme. Never did get an answer to my question. I was just invited to a 30 min team training course, another level in the pyramid.

  45. Just my two cents (i have no idea what date this was from but i’m going to assume its still being read)… As someone in the chemical manufacturing industry…if a company cannot provide a certificate of analysis (COA) which indicates the purity of all the components in whatever is being made/refined, then you should not trust them. COAs are the documents submitted to regulatory authorities that indicate how contaminated a product is with things like trace elements (arsenic, zinc, lead,etc.) and any biological levels (E.coli,S.aureus,etc.). If you’re selling products for a company that cannot provide, or refuses to provide, this information, and making claims with no peer reviewed human trials which can be referenced from high impact journals, you’re doing your customers a disservice.

  46. Great info. I saw the Great Opportunity and signed up. Wanted to see how much the shipping was but didn’t place an order and some how they have decided that I should be receiving auto-ship. Iv’e argued with them for 2 months now to stop but I still get a reminder that a shipment is being sent out. When I call, they stop and reverse the charge but because I’m in Canada and they’er from the States, I get charged the exchange rate and lose money on the refund. Getting pretty annoyed.

      The autoship at CTFO is the best I have ever seen. There is no need to contact the company to stop your autoship, you can do it from within your own back office, where you can also change the product for autoship. It is super easy to do, I find it hard to understand why you have had so much difficulty. Since I have been a member I have changed my autoship several times and also stopped it occasionally with zero problem!!
      Autoship is definitely NOT mandatory!

      There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that CTFO is the very best MLM I have come across, and I have had some rubbish experience with MLMs and swore I would never join another!!! And the products are first class and so effective. Joining CTFO is the very best thing I have done! Do take another look at it!!

  47. Your review is one sided. I had may Hempworx distributors tell me the their products were FDA approved. They are not! I was told by the woman trying to sell to me, told me not to buy from CTFO that they were fake. Why bad mouth another company, is that what associates are being taught? I bought a bottle from both companies, Hempworx smelled slightly different. I called the supplier that Hempworx claims to get their products from, they stopped doing business with them. I spoke to my neighbor who is with Hempworx, she was finally honest she isn’t making any money worth mentioning. Her right leg is doing great, too bad her left is weaker and she can barely eek out a commission which gets eaten up by the mandatory autoship. There’s enough room in this industry for everyone there’s no need to spread rumors. It was your associate told me Hempworx CBD oil would cure my dog’s cancer. You should do your research and if you’re going to reference an article make sure it’s from a real news network and not from some biased online source.

    Reply
    • Yup! As I’ve mentioned in my Hempworx review that no distributors should claim that their Hemp Oils are FDA approved.

      And that bad mouthing products from other companies isn’t the best practice for any distributors.

      What I’ve said in this review is backed by my research, but if you can prove otherwise, please let me know.

      I personally prefer to buy Hemp Oil from a more recognized company, that’s all.

The company is run by folks with their feet on the ground, not loose cannons. They have all of their ducks in a row and have the associates back. People are way more receptive to CTFO than what I experienced with Hempworx. Rest assured they keep all of our ssi stuff and banking information secure. I have zero doubt that all my information is safe. If you’re interested in selling CBD Oil and products, CTFO is the way to go. Have a blessed day ~ Sue.

    • Hi Sandy, I was introduced to CTFO by a former business associate where we shared a business adventure and am so blessed to have had the opportunity with CTFO. My Dr.’s couldn’t find anything to help with my pain and I could hardly get around so I figured what did I have to loose, it was free to join and had 60 day money back guarantee so we discussed it and I went for it and I had my Dr’s test it and researched it and they told me to try it and well it worked and that’s all I use is our products. The lab tests came back that it’s exactly what CTFO says and yes at first with the changes it was difficult to get a hold of people and some associates would rather recruit but me I was a nurse for over 26 years and i’m here to help people and with this company i’ve been able to do just that.

  49. This is a great article that explains everything quite accurately. What do you think of the lab reports they posted? I think that link to the vice explains the reason there is no name of the persons making the product. It actually looks really fake. Just like the people who signed up with this company before there was even a product… How can you sign up to sell something you haven’t even tried? Who is their source? Why is it secret? what farms?? haha it certainly isn’t the same source as hempworx.

  52. Interestomg you mentioming CTFO making false medical claims. It has been proven on a number of occassions that CBD oil helps stop seizures and convulsions. You mentiom not beong FDA approved which is utterly hilarious, i guess all the medicine and food fda approved is good for you! Lol
    Perhaps you dont know about all the Approved GMP food giving us cancer, feeding us carcinogens. All the drugs that are killing ppl vs actually healing ppl. An fda stamp of approval mean absolutely nothing when the FDA is approving things that are horrible for human consumption. Your review unfortunately in my opinion is boased. I think you just dont trust the company.

    Reply
    • I get what you mean.

      CBD does cure seizures and convulsions in many cases, but it doesn’t mean that CTFO products cured them.

      Affiliates cannot claim that the CTFO products cure diseases because they are not FDA approved. For some reason, if you want to promote CTFO, you have abide by the law, and in this case FDA is the law. Not that I trust FDA completely, but they are the ones who can bring CTFO down if affiliates continue to make claims that FDA don’t deem appropriate.

      If you have a serious condition, go to a doctor to acquire CBD products, not from a CTFO affiliate. That’s simply it.

  53. CTFO has independent 3rd party testing on its products. CTFO oil has 2 ingredients vs HempWorx 3. So which is more pure? Extensive information on extraction. Both made by same manufacurer. HempWorx makes a few people money at the top, and has made the very top millionaires on the backs, and work of the bottom. Unless one can afford to expend lots of money every month on the required autoship package payout is palsy. I have worked at both. Many at HempWorx come to CTFO. Hmmm…must be a reason why.
