What is Q Sciences?

It appears that when it comes to health and wellness, there is no limit to the number of multi-level companies involved in the industry. One thing is common. They have that special thing that sets makes them stand out from the rest.

With Q Sciences, that special thing is hemp. CBD which stands for cannabidiol is the second most prevalent active ingredient of the hemp plant, a close cousin of the marijuana plant.

Their claim to fame is that while many companies only extract CBD from the Hemp plant, Q Sciences everything including THC which is what gives you a buzz. Hemp plants only contain 0.3% THC, so you will probably not get high.

The company was launched in 2013 by Marc Wilson, a former two-time Super Bowl champion with the Oakland Raiders. Daren Hogge took the role of CEO for a number of years.

His story goes that he had worked in real estate for 30 years and decided to retire. 6 months into retirement he was so bored playing golf that he decided to jump into business and that is how Q Sciences was born.

On their website, they state: The “Q” in Q Sciences represents the word “Quintessential,” meaning the best of the best, the perfect embodiment of something.

Q Sciences sells full-spectrum hemp products and nutritional supplements through independent distributors.

For the relatively short period of time that they have been in business, they have experienced good growth and are currently doing business in 16 countries around the world.

Q Sciences are based out of Pleasant Grove, Utah.

How does Q Sciences work?

Getting started as a business owner will cost $79.95. This gets you a Business Activation Kit and can be waived if you purchase products worth $1500. to start your business with Q Sciences.

The other options packs go for between $125 to $435.

As a distributor, you are also expected to maintain a $100 monthly purchase to be eligible for commissions.

There are two main ways one can generate an income with Q Sciences.

  1. Earn commissions through retail product sales.
  2. Earn commissions when those who join under you and recruit other new members.

That is just how most MLMs work. Number 2 is where the real money lies. If you can build a large team below you, you can expect to start making some really good income. There are also bonus rewards that are paid depending on how large your team is.

Can you make money with Q Sciences?

I believe for a person with the right skill set and mindset, this business opportunity can work well for you. All businesses take a lot of time and hard work to grow.

Is this the ideal side-gig as Q Sciences say on their site? I don’t think so.

It’s always a lot harder when it comes to MLM opportunities. A lot of people know of this sort of business so you can expect to come across a lot of skepticism. Selling products is never easy. Most are simply not good at it.

Recruiting is even harder. Nobody wants to be dragged into a business that is solely built on recruiting others. Having said that, I do agree some people make money.


I haven’t used any of their products but from all the reviews I have come across, many people agree they have great products. In 2016, the company reported a 65 percent customer retention rate, which is high in the MLM industry.

Are the products better than similar products in the market? I think the only to find out is to try different products.

Are You Looking For a Way to Earn Passive Income
Without Having to Recruit?


The BBB.org website gives the company a B- rating. This is perhaps due to the complaints that have been raised by clients regarding shipping, cancellations, and refunds. That is something they may want to look into because it does not reflect well on the company.

There also been instances where distributors have said that the products can cure mental illness. That is just wrong.

The company has put up a disclaimer on its website distancing themselves from those claims.

Is Q Sciences a Scam?

Not even close.

A lot of people are skeptical about joining MLMs due to the recruiting nature of the business. As long as a company has a product or service behind it, you cannot brand it a scam.

Scams, particularly pyramid schemes, tend to take money out of your pocket using deceptive means. In most cases, they sell you an endless story of investing your money in nothing to grow your money.

Most people at the bottom end up losing everything before the top dogs disappear and then reappear with a new scheme.

Q Sciences actually strikes as a very decent company with great products.

Wrap up

I think there is some potential to make money with Q Science for the right candidate.

To most people, this might not be a very viable option to grow a business.

And by most, I mean the majority.

I was a former network marketer and aside from being a real pain to everyone I approached to join my business I spent a lot of money and never got to recruit even one person.

I might have approached over 300 people. Some of them were clearly not happy about it.

Recruiting is very intrusive. Most people will feel like you are taking advantage of the relationship you have with them

I had to face the facts. Was I really building a business or was I just helping someone else make their money?

Truth be told you are not really running a business. The people running the business are the people whose products or services you are selling. They dictate what you sell, price, and what you make for it. If you owned the business, you would have a say in that.

When you look at what it entails to host your friends, drive for appointments, attend meetings, etc you will agree that it doesn’t tally with what you will be making. All that talk about the business is easy and how anyone can do it is nothing but hot air.

The fact is, most people suck at selling.

According to this article on Wikipedia, over 99% of people who join MLM companies lose money. That is a big number.

If you are just joining Q Sciences or thinking of joining ask yourself whether you really stand a chance at success. I hate to burst your bubble but the odds are heavily against you.

Are there better alternatives to Q Sciences?

Certainly yes.

There many places online like Swagbucks where you can make some side cash doing surveys. Another great place is Fiverr where you can post jobs and bid for them.

I would say one of the most effective and long term ways to make money selling products or services is through your own website.

Best of all you don’t need to recruit. People need to come to you. How about you check out how I make money online without having to recruit.

No need to run around chasing after people to join your opportunity. There are billions of people connected on the internet today. You just need to put yourself in front of that audience.

This review is by no means meant to discourage you from joining or staying on with Q Sciences. If you feel you have what it takes then, by all means, go for it. If you don’t, just remember to keep your options open.
