What is it with the MLM industry targeting people who want to feel better about themselves? Surely we’ve got to the point where we need to help people for FREE sometimes?
About a week ago I nosed in on forum conversation going on between two health site webmasters. One of them was up in arms about a ‘Kannaway fraud’ whilst the other claimed the company was legit and relatively new ( so it was too soon to judge…apparently! ).
I had heard nothing about this ‘Kannaway’ group before but I was pretty sure it was yet another health based MLM product…and it was.
I’m not a fan of anything MLM – I’ve mentioned this many, many times before. But for some reason I have a morbid fascination in how they work and what they offer.
I had to dig a little deeper…

Kannaway MLM Review
I’ll start off this Kannaway MLM review by covering the background of the company. Kannaway was founded about a year ago and they refer to themselves as a Hemp Lifestyle Company.
They provide an array of healthy products that are laden with something called CBD rich hemp oil.
A lot of people will probably get that alarm bell sound inside their heads when they hear the word ‘hemp’ and they’re probably right to! Hemp is something that’s VERY closely related to the cannabis plant.
The Kannaway company is owned by a man named Stuart Titus.
Kannaway Hemp Oil
So what are the Kannaway hemp oil products on offer? Let’s take a closer look at their product line:
- Beauty Define Sav – This is the basic Kannaway cream that offers wonderful results on your skin etc. It is made up from some sort of secret recipe that contains CBD rich hemp oil.
- Hemp Vape Pen – Now this little beauty interested me somewhat as I gave up smoking a few years back…and I still use my vapor pen with a glass of wine every now and again! This Vape Pen is pretty much the same kind of thing expect they opt to use CBD hemp oil – what this tastes like is anyone’s guess?
- Kannakick Energy Chews – Nothing new here, just your bog-standard energy chew that contains caffeine and CBD rich hemp oil ( big surprise! ).
The Cost of Kannaway
Well this is a MLM opportunity so don’t expect to pick up any product packs for $10…
The beauty package ( or the impressively titled Defined Transformation Kit ) will set you back a whopping $554.00. I don’t know about you but I’m sticking to Nivea!
The energy sweets package will set you back a rather healthy $31.98 and the vapor sets are $90.
At this point I didn’t really have anything against the products but why does the price have to be so high? Does anyone else out there believe that these products probably cost no more than $10 to make?
Welcome to the MLM industry!
The Kannaway Opportunity
So what is the actual Kannaway opportunity? How can YOU make money through this hemp system?
If you fork out and pay a monthly membership fee of $29.99 you are given the opportunity to flog these hemp products.
It’s no different than any other MLM opportunity really – you buy the products in advance and then sh#t yourself when you realize you can’t sell them all!
You have to go through standing orders, hitting sales targets and recruiting new members – nothing new there!
The company has only been running for a year so even a miserable sod like me can’t call it a scam. I can however, cover a few worries I’ve seen floating about online…
First off it’s a bog standard MLM scheme – around 97% of people that take these schemes on ending up losing money ( and that’s a fact! ).
I also stumbled across an article that covers the grey area linked to hemp products at the moment ( this article only covered the US laws ).
Apparently only 18 States are truly happy with the prospect of hemp products being legal – the others fall into this grey area.
How long will these types of products be allowed to slip through the net – anyone’s guess?
Is Kannaway Legit?
Well as I mentioned above, this company has only been up and running for about 12 months now. Even though it’s a MLM opportunity it would still be wrong of me to label it as a scam.
But my own opinion on these sorts of products is not a particularly healthy one. I feel that these companies are jumping on the public’s insecurities and highly overcharging them for cures.
At the end of the day it’s nothing more than an elaborate pyramid scheme – but some people do make money out of these systems!
What do you think? Do you feel this system could work for you? Please leave your thoughts on the subject in the comment section below.
