CTFO is a network marketing company I was not familiar with until just recently. And from everything I have read online, I am VERY impressed with the company. CTFO stands for Changing the Future Outcome.
Today, I am going to share a comprehensive CTFO review. I’ll cover their products, compensation plan, leadership team, and good to know information.
Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with CTFO. This post is for educational purposes only and we are not compensated by the company or affiliates for this post.
Stuart Finger has been involved in network marketing for many years. Since he was small, Stuart had a problem with obesity. When he discovered a product that would help him slim down, he decided to start a MLM Company with it.
In 2015, Stuart founded CTFO. He rounded up a success team to manage the company. Since its start, CTFO has been growing fast and steady.
The CTFO Management Team
Stuart knew that the bottom line to success was having a great management team in place. Some of his key people are:
- Steve Finger – CEO and President
- Michael Kahn – COO, Treasurer and Secretary
- Steve Sakal – National Training Director
- Meagan Harris – General Manager
Stuart and these four folks are running a great network marketing business that is gaining new representatives daily.
What I find most interesting is that ALL of these folks are distributors, just like everyone else. From what I found online, they do not receive a salary or corporate pay. Instead, they are compensated for building a team of their own. This is very rare in the network marketing industry.
CTFO Postcard System
Many network marketers have discovered that postcard marketing is a great way to get leads, customers, and recruit into the business.
CTFO has designed some excellent postcards and for the cost of one stamp, you can begin generating leads and growing your CTFO business.
Think about it… While many people are not responsive to telemarketing calls, everyone at least reviews what they received in their mailbox. And the great designs keep people reading and learning how the CTFO hemp products can help them.
This is a simple recruiting strategy that anyone can do. Even grandma can mail postcards.
CTFO Extraction Process
The extraction of CBD hemp oil for the CTFO products is a meticulous process. CTFO sources the supply of hemp from Kentucky farms that work closely with the FDA and Department of Agriculture to ensure safety and that all legal requirements are met.
CTFO utilizes a chemical-free CO2 extraction process of pressurized carbon dioxide to extract the purest concentrations of phytochemicals (such as cannabidiol) from the industrial hemp plant. The manufacturing process is completely exempt of any harsh chemical solvents often used to extract CBD oil. This process eliminates the majority of THC which is the ingredient in marijuana that cause the “high” effects.
The CO2 extraction method is considered the safest method of all others.
CTFO Money Back Guarantee
CTFO is so confident in their products, they give you 60 full days to return any item for a money back guarantee.
You won’t find this long and good of a guarantee with most other CBD Oil companies. And with all the positive testimonies I have witnessed online, I have yet to find where anyone has returned the products.
It just makes good sense to know you can try a product, and if you are unhappy with it, send it back for a full refund.
CTFO has one of the most lucrative compensation plans in the MLM industry. It not only works on a Unilevel plan, but also has a 3 x 21 matrix. There are many ways to make money with CTFO and the higher your rank, the more money you can earn.

CTFO Marketing System
CBD Oil is a huge trend right now. The relief it provides people suffering from various diseases and conditions is amazing.
You may wonder how you will market your CTFO business. There are many strategies, but some top level CTFO distributors do teach newbies what has worked for them. And by teaching their marketing strategies, it benefits everyone.
One such CTFO guru is Allen Bauer who has been with CTFO since prelaunch. I suggest you search him out.
Allen teaches on such things as:
- Building internationally & locally
- Prospecting friends, family, strangers
- Marketing through Facebook and blogging
- What to say to approach people
- How to build your brand
- Gaining knowledge of CBD
- Using your testimony to grow your money

- Using education to combat ignorance
- Knowing when to walk away
- How to follow up with people
CTFO and its company leaders want you to succeed, so they provide lots of training and education. It is simply up to you to follow their system.
CTFO Top Leaders
I found one big difference with CTFO in comparison to most other MLM Companies… The leaders of the company make their money by being representatives too.
This goes for the Finger brothers and Michael Kahn who are all co-founders of CTFO.
There are many top earners with the company. And every day, more enter the Top Earner level. Could the next one be you?
CTFO VS Kannaway
Now to look at the CBD competition. In this corner, we have CTFO and in the opposite corner, Kannaway. Who comes out on top? Let’s look at some of the facts…
Cost to start
I would say that CTFO easily wins this round because you spend no money at all to start a CTFO business. With Kannaway, the cost is $9.99 per month or $49.99 for 1 year.
In this area, I see a draw. CTFO has a wide variety of products with CBD Oil infused in including skin care and even for pets. Kannaway has a wide variety of products too that include CBD infused shampoo, skin care, and even liquid to use in vape pens.
CTFO scores a knockout here. I have seen many people leaving Kannaway because the compensation plan is, in their words, disgusting. But in the words of CTFO representatives, their comp plan is the best MLM Compensation plan they have ever seen.
So over all, CTFO is the champ in the CBD Oil MLM industry. If you agree or disagree, feel free to leave your view at the end of this post.
The Top 10 CTFO Products
I am going to do this slightly different from my other top 10 posts. You see, CTFO is well known for their products that use hemp. Yes, CBD Hemp Oil, but it is not the kind of hemp you can get high off. This hemp does not have the “high” causing substance, THC.
CBD Oil has become quite popular as of late. It’s taking the MLM Industry by storm. CBD Companies are popping up left and right. I don’t see this slowing down or stopping any time soon.
CTFO has positioned themselves for great success in the CBD market, because they got started at the right time. They already have a great market share and they’re growing by leaps and bounds every month.
In the paragraphs below, I am going to give you the top 5 CTFO products that use hemp. But CTFO also has products that do not use hemp. So I will also give you the top 5 products in that line.

12 Reasons to Join CTFO
# 1: Free to Join
You can join CTFO for free. You are even eligible to earn commissions on your referrals without making a purchase yourself. Plus, you can create your free account without purchasing any products.
# 2: Great Product Variety
CTFO currently has more than 30 different products to choose from to include nutritional products, pet products and personal care products. Most of their products are made with CBD, but some are not.
# 3: Competitive Prices
Compared to most other CBD MLM Companies, CTFO has great prices on their products. From what I see, most of their products are in the $20 to $50 range. Some are a little bit less and others are a little bit more.
# 4: Free Website
When you join CTFO, you get a free website with your membership. You can share your replicated website with others and start retailing and recruiting, right from day one. This is pretty cool, because most MLM Companies charge $10 to $20 per month for a replicated website.
# 5: Generous Unilevel Compensation Plan
In my humble opinion, the unilevel compensation plan is the FAIREST compensation plan in our industry. The CTFO Compensation Plan is a great deal for the part-timer. Even the little guy can win, because he gets 20% commissions on his personal referrals. To me, this is really important, since about 98% of the people in our industry are part-timers.
# 6: No Balancing Legs
CTFO does NOT use a binary compensation plan, which is good. That means you don’t have to worry about balancing legs or only getting paid on your weaker leg.
# 7: 60-day Empty Bottle, Money Back Guarantee
CTFO offers a 60-day empty bottle, money back guarantee. This is very rare in the MLM Industry. This means there is absolutely ZERO RISK to try the products.
# 8: No Forced Auto-Ship
Unlike most MLM Companies, CTFO does not require a forced auto-ship. Buy products whenever you want.
# 9: Great Customer Service
From everything I have read online, CTFO has great customer service. People actually answer the phones and emails. They are polite and willing to help their reps and customers.
# 10: CBD is Hot
Of all the different product lines in the MLM Industry, I cannot think of even ONE product line hotter than CBD. I anticipate this trend will continue for at least another five to ten years, as more people learn about CBD.
# 11: Timing
If there’s one thing I learned in this great industry, it’s that you want to join the right company at the right time. CTFO is still a young company and it’s just about to hit momentum. It’s not saturated. Now is the time to get in, before it becomes a household name.
# 12: No Kits to Buy
Unlike some MLM Companies that want you to invest $1,000 to $2,000 in products just to get started, CTFO does not front-load anyone or encourage people to buy starter kits. To me, this is like a breath of fresh air.
In review, CTFO is a well designed MLM Company. They offer great products at great prices, a fair compensation plan, and perfect timing. Whether you want to be a customer, part-timer or serious business builder, they have something to offer you.
