The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of General Hemp, Inc. Its product line is supplied by HempMedsPX, LLC. The supplier is a distributor of federally legal CBD products that are hemp-based products.
The company’s operations are run by CEO Jeff Rogers and CMO Christopher Hussey. Both gentlemen have extensive network marketing industry experience that spans a combined 50 years.
To join Kannaway as a distributor, follow this simple three-step process:
- Proceed to the Kannaway website.

- Pay the BA Membership Fee ($54.98) and make any other product purchases you’d like in order to begin selling.
Kannaway is the only multi-level marketing company that offers CBD Hemp Oil enriched products. Its products are available in all 50 states and the company is currently launching business operations in Puerto Rico.
Its product line is legal under the federal Controlled Substance Act and contains no active THC, which means it cannot be used in an illicit way. The company has a line of skin care products that combat aging called Cannabis Beauty Defined.
The company also has Kannakick Energy Chews that deliver up to three hours of natural energy and focused mental clarity compared to traditional energy products available currently on the market.
The company also offers a Kannaway Hemp Vape e-cigarette pen that contains no carcinogens, hallucinogenic properties, or nicotine. These e-cigarette pens come in a variety of flavors.
Low Startup and Renewal Costs
Individuals can become Kannaway brand ambassadors by paying a signup cost of $9.99 monthly or $49.99 yearly. The renewal fee is the same based on the initial selection. Brand ambassadors are given a wealth of company support, including:
- Promotional Material
- Kannaway Marketing Website
- MLM Training
- Kannaway Media Marketing System
- Kannaways Secure Back Office
- Access To Kway University Training
- Success Manual & Quick Start Guides
Bonuses and Incentives
The back office includes company lead capture pages and banners available for downloading and sharing. The company allows brand ambassadors to be able to earn products for free by enrolling three preferred customers.
The company also provides matching check bonuses and a one-time $75,000 car bonus to top sales achievers. The company offers a generous compensation plan that provides nine ways to earn income.
The company’s product line is controversial because some consumers confuse hemp with marijuana, which is illegal to sell in most states.
The lack of public education is a difficult obstacle to overcome. Some people may also be uncomfortable with the idea of being a hemp seller and may be concerned with their professional image in the public eye.
Public perception is not exactly positive concerning this topic, and people may raise concerns that an untrained brand ambassador would not be able to answer. The health benefits of the oil cannot be scientifically proven.
The company provides one lab test result, but it is a few years old and unsubstantiated. The products are expensive and the compensation plan is a bit complicated. Ambassadors are required to meet a 55 BV standard weekly. However, there is no information available regarding how much this is in a spending amount. The only way to find out is to join the company.
Sales Commissions Only
Kannaway only pays commissions on product sales. It does not offer payments for recruitments, but they heavily focus on recruitment. Multi-level marketing companies typically pay for recruiting others. Kannaway may not pay for recruitments, but it does pay for the product sales those team members make.
Brand ambassadors are not allowed to sell at company events. They may pass out a business card and brochure. Brand ambassadors may also participate in other network marketing industries that are not in the same industry, but cannot recruit people into these other network marketing opportunities.
Only one member of a household may be a Kannaway ambassador at any given time. Kannaway distributors are not allowed to create their own websites or create social media posts other than the ones the company provides.
