FlowMode CBD vs HempWorx Review

There are tons of CBD brands out there, including a handful that are well established and more and more startups emerging every day. Sometimes it can be overwhelming to decide which brand will work best for you. The goal of this review series is to share with you in the most unbiased way possible how FlowMode, which is a relatively new brand as of this writing, stacks up against some of the most well established brands on the market.

In case it’s not abundantly clear, there is no way we can be 100% unbiased, as we sell our own CBD products! That said, we want to give credit where credit is due, and hope that this review will shed some light on the most important differences between our offerings and that of our competitors.

Your thoughts are important to us! We encourage you to leave your questions and comments at the end of this review.

About The Brand

HempWorx

Based in Las Vegas, Nevada and founded in 2014, they offer a limited range of CBD products and have made a name for themselves in the market. They source their hemp from organic farms in Kentucky.

Certified by the US Hemp Authority, they are run by the parent company MyDailyChoice, which is well known in the affiliate marketing space for a variety of alternative health-related products.

FlowMode

FlowMode is based in Easthampton, MA and was established in April 2019. Although a newcomer to the CBD market, the founder comes from a 15 year background in pharmaceutical product manufacturing, and possesses a deep understanding of the importance of strict quality guidelines for the manufacturing and sale of consumable health and wellness products.

FlowMode products are produced from organic hemp grown outside Eugene, Oregon. Oregon is known for its tremendous soil and remarkable microclimates that are perfectly suited to growing hemp, resulting in quality that transcends even some of the better known growing locations in the US such as Montana and Colorado.

FlowMode products are formulated and packaged on our behalf by a manufacter that specializes in unique, small batch CBD-rich products and tinctures. Operations are run by a Master Herbalist with over 20 years experience.

Winner: Draw

Both companies offer a clear picture of where they started and what got them into the CBD business. Both companies are run by families who are committed to the health and wellness of their customers.

Products

HempWorx

Their main product offering is CBD tinctures in two dosages, available with full-spectrum hemp extract as well as CBD isolate. Dosages range from 10mg up to 15mg per dose, which is on the lower end compared to other products on the market. I always recommend full-spectrum extract whenever possible, due to the additional benefits of other cannabinoids and terpenes contained within it.

Below is a short list of some of the more common selections in their product line:

Hempworx Reviews

HempWorx CBD Oil:

  • Potency: 500-750mg per bottle
  • Price: $69-89 per bottle
  • Ingredients (Full-Spectrum): Pressed Hemp (seed) oil, CBD-Rich Whole Hemp Extract
  • Ingredients (CBD Isolate): Hemp-Derived Crystalline CBD, Pressed Hemp Seed Oil, Natural Flavoring
  • Editor’s Notes: They offer both full-spectrum hemp extract as well as a 0% THC version made with CBD isolate. I always recommend full-spectrum extract whenever possible, due to the additional benefits of other cannabinoids and terpenes contained within it.
HempWorx CBD Oil

HempWorx Relief:

  • Potency: 80mg per container
  • Price: $69 per container
  • Ingredients: Water, Stearic Acid, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Glycerin, Sodium Acrylates Copolymer, Lecithin, Crystalline Cannabidiol, Allantoin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Glycol Distearate, Menthol, Tocopherol Acetate, Emu Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Squalene, Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil, Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Boswellia Serrata Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Yellow 5
  • Editor’s Notes: Not the most natural topical I’ve seen, but it does have a variety of notable ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E, Arnica and Frankincense, all of which are great for the skin.
HempWorx Bath Bombs

HempWorx Bath Bombs:

  • Potency: 10mg per bath bomb
  • Price: $49 per container (4 bath bombs)
  • Ingredients (Lavender): 100mg Hemp Seed Oil, 10mg Hemp-Derived CBD, Baking Soda, Citric Acid, Epsom Salt, Corn Starch, Witch Hazel, Lavender Essential Oils, Colorant: Red 33, Blue 1
  • Editor’s Notes: One box contains 4 bath bombs, one in Lavender, Lemongrass, Sea Salt and Citrus scents. This still seems a little pricey for a single bath time experience!
HempWorx Coffee

HempWorx CBD Coffee:

  • Potency: 5mg per cup
  • Price: $69 per container
  • Ingredients: Organic Instant Arabican Coffee (bean), Organic Chaga Mushroom Powder, Hemp (seed) extract (5mg)
  • Editor’s Notes: Chaga is a well documented adaptogen that supports mood and anxiety levels.

They also sell additional topical products, including Keto Coffee Creamer, CBD Oil for Pets and CBD Dog Treats.

FlowMode

FlowMode currently has a limited offering of two products:

Feel Well Natural Pain Relief CBD Oil

FlowMode Feel Well – Natural Pain Relief

Hemp Bombs CBD Gummies Review

FlowMode Sleep Well – Natural Sleep Aid

We are preparing to roll out 3-4 new formulas by Spring 2020 to address the requests of our users.

Winner – Product Variety: HempWorx

There is no question that they have more items for sale than FlowMode. I appreciate that their product line still seems to maintain a focus of purpose and it definitely appears that there has been some thoughtfulness put into their offerings. Some other companies we have reviewed seem to have as many products as they can possibly get CBD into.

Winner – CBD Concentration per Bottle: HempWorx (with a catch)

When it comes to concentration of CBD per bottle, they are the winner once again, as they offer more potent blends than FlowMode.

I also want to point out that there are many ways to accomplish the same goal. The guiding belief of FlowMode is to offer CBD based formulas that are prepared in a way that follows that ancient traditions of hemp medicine that have been used for millennia. Hemp and cannabis were not often used as a standalone substance, but rather in balance with several other medicinal herbs that provided complementary benefits.

Take our Sleep Well Master Blend, for example. Although the CBD content is lower than many pure CBD oil products, we also include Lemon Balm, Ashwagandha, Valerian and Nutmeg, all of which have a long history of supporting people with sleep problems. Our goal is to offer formulas that address issues with a multi-faceted approach, so that everybody will recieve some benefits, even people who may not respond as strongly to CBD.

I was glad to see, as I began researching various HempWorx reviews, that they incorporate other ingredients in certain products, as we believe that CBD works best when used in conjunction with additional healthful ingredients. I would have liked to see this much more often, though.

Worst case scenario, if the US government shuts down the CBD market tomorrow, FlowMode products will still offer profound relief for the purposes they have been developed. CBD is one of the wheels on the bus, but it’s surely not the whole bus. We like to think that this future-proofs our products, because we offer so much more than just CBD.

Winner – CBD Quality: FlowMode

Most HempWorx reviews that I found, including their website, explain that their CBD oil comes in both full-spectrum and isolate forms, depending on the choice of the user. I would encourage people to choose full-spectrum if at all possible.

The isolate form, which is a highly refined form of CBD with no other cannabinoids present, may sacrifice important benefits compared to full-spectrum hemp extract. These additional benefits are related to other, lesser known cannabinoids including CBC, CBG, and CBN, as well as dozens of natural terpenes, all of which possess unique effects of their own.

FlowMode products incorporate CBD-rich full-spectrum hemp extract, produced using the Activated Glycerin Method. This is the tried and true herbalist method to ensure the highest potency extract from hemp. Although glycerin-based extracts yield a lower concentration of cannabinoids than an alcohol extract or an isolate, many herbalists believe that glycerites may actually exert stronger effects for the same volume due to the completeness of the “information” they contain (Reference).

Due to the Activated Glycerin Method of extraction, I have to go with FlowMode products on this one, as we simply haven’t found a better way to enhance the bioavailability of CBD extract than this.

Independent Lab Testing

HempWorx

Current test results are readily available on each product page. Collectively, these documents ensure that products contain accurate amounts of active ingredients as stated on the label and that there is nothing that could potentially harm the end user.

FlowMode

FlowMode offers batch certificates on each product page.

It’s also important to note that although FlowMode products use full-spectrum hemp extract, independent lab testing confirms that THC content is below the detectable limit. Lab equipment for cannabinoid testing is extremely sensitive. This is essentially the same as saying that THC does not exist in the products whatsoever. You can rest assured that using FlowMode products will NOT cause you to fail a drug test.

Winner: Draw

Both brands provide the utmost level of quality control and assurance for their products. We hope to feature QR codes on all our product labels in the near future, which is the best technology currently available to share transparency with consumers.

Customer Service, Perks and Return Policy

HempWorx

I spent a long time studying all the reviews I could find and was disappointed to see a B- from the Better Business Bureau.

I found that their current BBB rating is a B- due mainly to shipping and return issues, NOT product quality.

I want to be clear that I do not think this report is a black mark on the quality of their products. What it looks like to me is a company that is growing rapidly and struggling to keep up with demand. I look forward to seeing how their rating changes as they get ahead of things.

They offer a variety of discounts and coupons on a regular basis.

They offer a 30-day refund policy in which the user must return the entire order, Partial refunds are not accepted, therefore, if one of the products out of many you order is not satisfactory, you will have to send back EVERYTHING or just deal with the unsatisfactory product. The customer is responsible for return shipping costs.

FlowMode

FlowMode customer service is immediate, direct and effective. We are here to serve you and will do what we can to ensure that every interaction you have with us and our products is enjoyable. You can reach us via the contact form on our website, email, phone call, text, tweet or even FB Messenger. We love hearing from you!

FlowMode offers a Points program where every $10 spent results in $1 for you. There are numerous ways to earn more points by sharing our products on social media and with your friends and family. Our primary goal is to share the benefits of our products with as many people as possible, and want to make it easy for you to continue using them for as long as you choose.

FlowMode offers a generous 90-day, no questions asked refund policy. We recognize that everybody’s body is different and that natural remedies often take awhile to ramp up their effectiveness. Even if your bottle is completely empty, we are happy to refund you.

We do not ask for any product returns. Our hope is that you will gift any remaining product to a friend or loved one to see if it can help them. You’ll get your money back, and somebody else gets the opportunity to try our products for free…it’s a win-win.

Winner: FlowMode

I am disappointed with their relatively limited refund policy. Given all the negative press on CBD lately, it is extremely important that CBD companies do everything they can to offer consumers a generosity of spirit that transcends their normal online shopping experience.

Summary: FlowMode CBD vs HempWorx Reviews

I’d say that I did a pretty good job staying as unbiased as possible! We can’t be everything to everybody, and FlowMode is surely not trying to do that. FlowMode is focused on providing a curated selection of highly effective formulas that go beyond CBD oil to provide you with a wealth of benefits for your body and mind. I’m proud of our focus and the uniqueness of our products in a market crowded with a lot of lookalikes.

I appreciate any company that provides products that help people feel better and live happier and healthier lives. In this regard, I believe that this is more of a big fat “Thank You!” for their a role in supporting the wellbeing of consumers. Their products are helping and I applaud them for that.

I’m confident I will end up doing more HempWorx reviews down the road, to follow up on the BBB findings and other details.

What do you think? Was this fair and balanced? I’d love to hear your questions and comments below!
