If you’re curious to where the 99% statistic comes from (with the reps making little to no money)here you go:
That statistic comes from a report done by Jon M. Taylor PhD called “the Case (For And) Against Multi-Level Marketing” which the FTC studied and verified. The report in entirety can be found on the FTC website (which I will leave linked below for you). The report is 40 pages long so if you are only looking for the statistic skip to Chapter 7: MLM’s abysmal numbers. His statistics were independently verified by other experts prior to being given to the FTC as listed in the appendix. Other experts such as Robert Fitzpatrick have also done their own independent studies and came up with the exact same numbers.

    Wait…you said that your family "use to" have a CBD store and products. Do you guys no longer have the store?

    *For anyone doing auto-ship* check with your bank’s website to see if they allow for the creation of virtual cards. This is a digital temporary credit card that connects to your actual card. You can turn it on and off whenever you’d like and it locks the card so your real card won’t be charged again. If the autoship is causing problems, turn off the card and they’ll either try to get to you or cancel overall.

    Amazing job on this video! I can confirm that they are STILL making claims that their products can treat ADHD, autism, bipolar disorder, etc. Absolutely disgusting.

  4. Carrie Chavanne on August 21, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    As aTrekkie hearing them say "We are Q" makes me want to look around for John Dr Lancie to pop up and cause shenanigans.

  5. Sierath on August 21, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    I am glad you covered this one. I had a therapist that recommended one of the multivitamins to me. I didn’t realize how unethical that was at the time. I should have known something was off when it had a long list of things it cured.

  6. luther1546 on August 21, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    I’m so, so tired of the amount of energy people put into just trying to scam money out of unsuspecting victims. just get a real job for God’s sakes and stop bothering everyone already.

  7. Amy Ess on August 21, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    Thank you so much for doing this deep dive into an MLM that I was not at all familiar with! It’s great to have “fresh” content and not just another Monat reaction of something.
    I appreciate the work you put into your content!

  8. melbell713 on August 21, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    It would be a cold day in hell before I’d use unregulated mlm products on my fur children

  9. Dj Thompson on August 21, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    I haven’t heard of this one so thank you for this!!

  10. ravencassidy on August 21, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    Thank you so much for making this video..

  11. Kayla on August 21, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    I just left this company and felt weird because no one had talked about it. Ty

  12. ettoilemagik on August 21, 2021 at 10:41 pm

    Don’t have time now (it’s past midnight *cough*) but will watch it tomorrow!!

  13. Amanda Roinila on August 21, 2021 at 10:41 pm

    I use their products and they have really helped me. I’m anti MLM too. I’ve gotten off almost all of my anxiety meds including my Xanax. I was skeptical until they did work. My doctor approved them as well.

    I’m still watching the video but so far there are a lot of questions you have that can be answered. Especially the lab testing. It is available upon request.

    I’m actually looking for claims to make me stop using their products because they are expensive but so far all your information was known to me already and not 100% correct.

  14. Lexi Packer11 on August 21, 2021 at 10:41 pm

    Ok just found this out about mental health yesterday and it’s so important when it comes to this!

    Mental illness and personality disorders are different (which I knew) but they are different because mental illnesses are outside factors causing an altered state while a personality is the person. MEANING medication does not help personality disorders! It can take the edge off of things like anxiety or depression a bit but it can’t fix a personality disorder, because that cannot be fixed!! And the only thing really to fix mental illness is medication!!!

    I noticed in the Q sciences website articles you showed that they were very careful to ONLY include mental illnesses and not personality disorders (not finished with the video yet so maybe they include both). I believe this is to avoid problems with getting called out for there not being any cure for a PD. I mean mental illness you can’t take a supplement to cure for the most part it has to be your actual meds but still. HOWEVER I doubt the reps know about this and it’s so scary that they can just say it will cure something when there is NO CURE!

  15. Dietitian Kat Garcia-Benson on August 21, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    I hadn’t heard of this one until you! Excited to watch!

  16. Kseniya International on August 21, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    Very interesting, they’re definitely well versed and knows how to cover their ass (probably learned from other MLM’s mistakes). I do wonder what kinds of quack claims other distributors say.

  17. wendy Cooper on August 21, 2021 at 10:45 pm

    Q sciences paid off one credit card of mine ($200 a month) and now it’s being applied to our family car 👏 The Financial consultants ARE professional with degrees in there field! And it’s lifetime… even if you leave the company.

  18. BunnaySango on August 21, 2021 at 10:45 pm

    "Together We are Q"? Sounds like a bunch of fools sitting around chatting shit I know of 🤣

  19. Lady Sundown on August 21, 2021 at 10:45 pm

    I love your deep dives! And your hair and makeup are super cute!

  20. Melissa Dayton on August 21, 2021 at 10:45 pm

    Do a video on Primerica! I just recently almost got scammed by them. I’m in insurance and I saw a posting on Indeed saying "financial consultant" which is something you can be with a Series 6 insurance license. The posting didn’t say one thing about Primerica. Deep into the hiring process, that truly seemed like a real one, Primerica was mentioned. I didn’t realize it was an MLM until they kept talking about recruiting. I asked about actually signing people onto policies, and they mainly focused on recruiting friends and family to join or sign into a policy. They said they had a "CRM system" which I associate with call center software, nope. Their "CRM" was making a list of the last 50 people you spoke to and calling or messaging them a copy and pasted message🙄🙄🙄 I left the moment I heard that.

  21. Brenda Paduch on August 21, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    Someone tried to recruit me for this about a month ago! I have a lot of samples lying around. He’s not speaking to me, now, since I told him he was in a pyramid scheme (he was here for the big Dallas conference from the west coast) – when he told me that almost everything he owns or gets billed for, he “writes off” on his taxes as business expenses, I told him he better hope he never gets audited. I’ve been self-employed for 27 years and nearly everything he was doing was very illegal. He also tried to buy me a ticket to the conference and buy me in as an associate (to use my name for one of his two required downlines) “two: because you need two legs to stand.” 🤦🏽‍♀️

    By the way, his “mentor” (aka upline) had told him how to prepare his taxes – I wonder how common those practices are in this and other MLMs. As a person who must take anti-depressants, had heard the mental illness crap from him, I REALLY would have lost it. Something weird: I never saw him eat or drink in 3 days (he was a friend of a friend and he stayed at my house during the conference trip). Oh! And even though marijuana is illegal in TX, he said I could order THC-containing products from Q Sciences and have them mailed to me, no problem – I wasn’t interested and I highly doubt that was true.

  22. A. Merico on August 21, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    Q Sciences sucks

  23. ธนชิต on August 21, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    Wow, just listening to the amount of MLMs popping up DESPITE the mountain of information readily available about their schemes is so exhausting. I can’t imagine how tiring it must be for you since you do the research and deal with the BS of huns. Sending my best wishes and hugs 🤗

  24. Jill Stemple on August 21, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    I’m a little shocked they haven’t changed their name with the rise of “anon”. I can’t imagine wanting your company to be named Q now.

  25. Johnn Sliver Gameing on August 21, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    Is it weird when a company say they’re the number one and you only find out about them when someone makes it makes a YouTube video on the company?

  26. Samantha Wilch on August 21, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    You are so smart and well spoken. I enjoy everything you create. You are great at research and reporting a detailed story. Very much appreciated ❤️

  27. Brenda Paduch on August 21, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    Important warning: if you are considering purchasing from this company, please Google and read the “Q Sciences Drug Testing Statement.” Long-term use of their products can cause positive THC urine and blood tests, because they contain the federal limit of 0.3% THC (the THC-free products, that is). So if you have drug tests for work, etc., they do not recommend that you ingest their products.

    Edit: my apologies if this was covered in the video, but it’s 1 am and I’m only ⅓ through it ,and will have to finish tomorrow.

  28. ravencassidy on August 21, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    My friend just tried to get me to sign up for Q Sciences.. After researching it Red Flags just went up in my head..

  29. Megan Nichole Scheller on August 21, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    Yes! I know only what it is but I hadn’t heard any deep dives of this. Someone on my Facebook is in it and she hopped from one mlm to this one

  30. Martin Burnett on August 21, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    The wife of a friend is a Q Science rep…after previously being involved with at least 2 other MLMs. All her Facebook posts promote the products, going on about all the benefits and how she gives her daughter all these supplements but every single post also goes on about how well she’s doing and about "partnering" her to "make the best of yourself" and about getting in early and how this definitely isn’t an MLM. She was even making claims of CoVid protection provided by their products using a link to a non peer reviewed study as evidence…a "study" written by a Dr under an assumed name who was also touting his own vitamin range as protection against Covid.

  31. RealflyRealeyes on August 21, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    Or-Gun not Or-a-gone lol no hate. Just a heads up.

  32. Liz on August 21, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    The q sciences packaging reminds me of thrive

  33. I'll Say It Again on August 21, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    The end is just a giant legal cesspool. I dislike the people that develop the products and the companies that distribute. I hope they all lose in court.

  34. wendy Cooper on August 21, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    One of my ambassadors has a massive delivery error where her large order got shipped the wrong address. They sent her a replacement and then let her keep the original order when it finally was rerouted and arrived.

  35. Rob Tulley on August 21, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    Thx for covering this. I know ppl in this scam.. I over heard a zoom call where they were telling recruits that they were building a "legacy for their family"… a legacy of pissing off friends and ripping ppl off apparently…. I told one of them she could literally work 5 hours a week at Walmart and earn more money than she does now… + she’s spending hundreds of $ just to keep her rank…… YUCK

  36. Jeanine Chang on August 21, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    I haven’t even watched yet but THANK YOU for this deep dive bc I have an acquaintance who is always posting mlm hun type stuff & did some digging to find out it was this one… I had never heard of it & didn’t find much info so this is great!

  37. Halina Dreger on August 21, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    I think it’s really interesting that the person who ran mofammemes quit to join this. I’ve also seen a lot of other people who have quit Monat to join this, saying that it’s better for their mental health and that they don’t have to be involved in hustle culture to see a profit. I would imagine that this is because they’ve already established a larger audience and one that’s not saturated with q science sellers.

  38. April Reichert on August 21, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    Several people I follow on FB jumped to this company. One is posting about how she gets to garden all day now because of this business. Keeps asking people to join her so they too can have freedom.

  39. wendy Cooper on August 21, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    100 PV averages at $135 to $175 Monthly.

  40. wendy Cooper on August 21, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    The reason the CBD is lower is because it ALSO had FULL SPECTRUM HEMP which is how its best absorbed and user by your body.
    Our lab was instantly available by a QR code on each bottle with our prior line- LAB testing IS being updated and will be available ASAP because we recently reformulated our hemp line.

  41. Kayla on August 21, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Also I recognize the rep from the compensation video. If you have any questions about studies or anything let me know 😝

  42. Heather C on August 21, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    The companies who claim their products can help with mental health REALLY upset me. In 2017, I was on a health journey and eating vegan and felt like I was getting my life on track. I was shopping at a local health food store and was looking for something to give me more energy and wound up talking to one of the employees who showed me a line of products for various needs including anxiety and mood stability. I have bipolar I and generalized anxiety disorder and was unmedicated at the time (I am now, as well) due to struggling with medications taking away all my creative energy. How is that related? Well this product she talked up, I bought and began taking, and 30 days later on a whim, I attempted to exit the world. This is the best way I can say it appropriately on here. I’m not blaming the supplement, I took it without doing my research, but when I did research it, I found that it specifically says it should not be used by patients with bipolar disorder. Again, I take responsibility for not researching it and blindly accepting the recommendation, however I think it’s important to recognize that she (lady at health food store) as well as the MLM reps selling these products, are not QUALIFIED to provide recommendations or guidance on this type of product. Only a doctor can truly help you make that decision and the way MLMs market their products via their reps, you are in a pressure cooker to buy on the spot versus taking the ingredient list to your doctor and talking to them about it first. It preys on impulse and impulsive behavior and for someone with a mental illness where I experience severe bouts of impulsivity, I can be more susceptible to those tactics for various reasons.

    Sorry to rant, it just really upsets me to see anything like that – products being offered with testimonials that they’ll “fix you”. It’s so unbelievably predatory.

    Thank you for sharing this one. I hadn’t heard of this MLM.

  43. KatyR on August 21, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    Wow, if only I’d know some sugar pills from an MLM could cure my Bipolar 🙄

  44. Circe on August 21, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    Holy moly, the thought of being at a NAMI walk and seeing one of these booths is infuriating! I am in shock it was even allowed.

  45. Natasha Meehan on August 21, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    Ohhhh so excited to hear about a new MLM!

  46. wendy Cooper on August 21, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    To answer your question which is clarified on any info call you join, we were considered Ground Floor up until the last few months because-even though we were founded in 2012 we completely relaunched and rebranded with new products, a new comp plan, and new marketing in 2018… and we have about a 1 percent global saturation right now. We are being told to not claim “ground floor “ anymore though so as to not mis lead people but rather that we are coming out of ground floor and starting to hit company momentum. Also we are very open about the fact that we WILL hit a point of saturation like anything else.

  47. Stephanie Winter on August 21, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    Thought I made a new friend and after 2 months of buddy buddy coolness she whipped out the MLM pitch. Going to learn about this mess she is in

  48. zinatarata on August 21, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    Belly-to-belly business? That does not sound plesant.
