Cellis Review: Valentus “healthy coffee” spinoff?

Cellis operate in the nutritional supplement MLM niche and are based out of Texas in the US.The company is headed up by Cellis’ Founder and CEO, Korey Johnson.
It’s worth noting that Johnson (right) resides in North Carolina, which is presumably where Cellis is actually operated from.
As per Johnson’s Cellis corporate bio, he has ‘29 years in industry with high level field leadership experience‘ and has been a ‘6-figure earner in multiple companies‘.
Two MLM companies I was able to tie Korey too were Waiora (circa 2010) and more recently, Valentus (2017).

Why executive information, along with at least basic product info, is not provided on the NuYugen website is unclear.
As far as I can tell, Richard Sharp (right) has no prior MLM executive experience.
Sharp’s NuYugen corporate bio identifies him as editor of “The Hemp News” website and an ‘authority on hemp-derived CBD‘.
