Best CBD Gummies from Cornbread Hemp


Boasting all the health benefits of CBD (cannabidiol) but in a bite-size treat, CBD gummies have been taking the wellness world by storm. But just as with other CBD products, not all CBD gummies are created equal. That’s why more and more consumers are turning to Cornbread Hemp’s full spectrum CBD gummies, with CBD sourced exclusively from hemp flowers grown in the nutrient-rich soil of Kentucky’s Bluegrass Basin. Keep reading to learn about the best CBD gummies from Cornbread Hemp as well as what makes this premium brand stand out from its category.

The Benefits of CBD Gummies

The Benefits of CBD Gummies

CBD gummies are edible candies infused with cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive cannabinoid (compound derived from the cannabis plant). These treats provide a convenient and enjoyable way to incorporate CBD into one's daily wellness regimen. Users of gummies typically appreciate their precise dosing, mess-free consumption, travel-friendliness, and pleasant taste compared to CBD oil.

The CBD in CBD gummies is typically derived from hemp — a variety of cannabis with low THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) levels. Hemp was legalized under the U.S. 2018 Farm Bill1, which requires a THC content of less than 0.3%. This ensures that the gummies won't produce a "high.”

The effects of CBD vary from person to person. The most popular health benefits of CBD gummies include:

  • Supporting a healthy sleep cycle by helping with occasional sleeplessness

  • Relieving stress by promoting relaxation

  • Reducing aches and pains from exercise-induced inflammation

  • Improving mood and supporting good mental health

CBD and the Endocannabinoid System

The reason why CBD is able to achieve these benefits is because of the way this cannabinoid interacts with the body’s “endocannabinoid system,” or ECS for short.

As the name of ECS suggests (which comes from “endo,” meaning “within”), our bodies naturally produce cannabinoids (called endocannabinoids). These then interact with specific receptors located throughout the body in order to regulate various physiological functions, including sleep, digestion, stress response, immune response, and much more.

CBD interacts with the ECS by influencing the activity of receptors, but it doesn’t do this by binding directly to them like endocannabinoids. One way CBD interacts with the ECS is by inhibiting the enzymes responsible for breaking down endocannabinoids. This makes them more present in the body, thereby prolonging their effects on the ECS.

Types of CBD Gummies

There are three types of CBD gummies on the market. Here’s what to know about each one before purchasing CBD:

CBD Isolate Gummies

CBD isolate gummies are made with pure CBD isolate, which is the crystalline form of cannabidiol created by removing all other cannabinoids, terpenes, and plant compounds during the extraction process. 

Broad Spectrum CBD Gummies

Broad spectrum CBD gummies are made with CBD that contains multiple cannabinoids — excluding THC, which is removed during the extraction process.

Full Spectrum CBD Gummies (CBD Gummies with THC)

Full spectrum CBD gummies contain the full profile of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other plant compounds, including THC (less than .3%). This small amount is just sufficient to produce the “entourage effect” — what we call it when all the various cannabis compounds work together to enhance the overall therapeutic effects of CBD oil — without causing any psychoactive effects.

Due to the entourage effect, of the three types, full spectrum CBD gummies offer the greatest wellness benefits.

What to Look for in High-Quality CBD Gummies

Before you get started shopping for CBD gummies, it’s important to understand what makes a CBD product high-quality. The fact is, the CBD industry is currently unregulated, which means that CBD manufacturers can get away with selling low-quality or even fraudulent CBD gummies. These may not even contain the advertised amount of CBD — or any CBD at all. Additionally, they may also contain toxic ingredients such as heavy metals, pesticides, or illegal levels of THC.

Here are things to look for when vetting CBD gummy products: 

Third-Party Testing

Reputable CBD brands prioritize third-party testing to ensure the labeling accuracy of their cannabinoid products. Beyond confirming cannabinoid levels, these tests also identify potential contaminants such as heavy metals, pesticides, chemical solvents, bacteria, or mold. Look for a Certificate of Analysis (COA), which is usually available online or via a QR code on the product's packaging. If a product lacks these test results, it's best to walk away and find an alternative that provides a COA.

USDA Organic Certification

While consuming organic foods and dietary supplements is always a good idea for maintaining optimum health, the organic status of CBD oils, gummies, and other products is particularly critical. This is because hemp, known as a "bioaccumulator," absorbs contaminants from the soil at a faster rate than it releases them. And CBD derived from compromised hemp may contain these contaminants. When you opt for CBD supplements with organic certification, as demonstrated by the USDA's organic seal, you know you’re buying a safe, responsibly sourced product.

CBD Extraction Method

Various extraction methods exist in the CBD industry, and the method chosen significantly influences product quality. At Cornbread Hemp, we firmly stand by organic sugarcane ethanol extraction as the safest and most effective, and this is the only method we use. Unlike other solvent extraction techniques, organic sugarcane ethanol extraction doesn't use harsh chemicals and it adheres to USDA organic standards. This gentle process also preserves the hemp flower's flavor while maintaining CBD purity.

Vegan Formula

Pectin is derived from fruits, typically citrus peels or apples, and creates a chewy texture, making it an excellent alternative to gelatin. Cornbread Hemp CBD gummies stand out for using pectin as the gelling agent instead of animal-based gelatin. This choice makes our gummies entirely vegan-friendly. This vegan approach aligns with Cornbread Hemp's commitment to providing high-quality CBD products to as diverse a range of consumers as possible.

The Cornbread Hemp Difference

In addition to meeting the standards above, Cornbread Hemp goes above and beyond even the highest quality CBD products in the following ways: 

Bluegrass Basin Hemp™

Cornbread Hemp products are distinguished by their origin in Kentucky's Bluegrass Basin, known for its limestone-filtered water and nutrient-rich soil. Situated on a vast, prehistoric limestone rock bed on the 37th parallel latitude, the basin provides ideal conditions for hemp cultivation. With a hemp-growing tradition dating back to 1775, Kentucky has played a leading role in the industry. Cornbread Hemp proudly continues this legacy, sourcing CBD exclusively from Kentucky-grown hemp flowers.

Flower-Only™ Extract 

Cornbread Hemp's CBD gummies, like all our products, are made from Flower-OnlyTM hemp extract, which means they contain the full spectrum of cannabis compounds — including 2 mg of THC. Unlike CBD extracted from stalks, stems, and leaves, whole flower derived CBD oil stands out as a superior choice due to the higher concentration of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other beneficial compounds in the hemp plant's flowers. The result is a more potent and therapeutic CBD experience due to the synergistic interaction of these components (the "entourage effect," as described above).

About Cornbread Hemp Gummies

How Do We Make Our Gummies?

At Cornbread Hemp, we make all our CBD gummies with Flower-Only hemp extract — which is to say, they contain the highest quality full spectrum CBD on the market for the greatest possible benefits.

The hemp extract is blended with organic fruit flavors and other vegan ingredients like apple pectin until a fully integrated liquid mixture is achieved. This liquid blend is then carefully placed into tray molds and refrigerated to allow it to set. As the pectin expands its fibers in the cold, the gummies firm up. Then, we roll the gummies in cane sugar crystals and bottle them in amber glass jars, which helps protect the contents from exposure to harmful UV rays. Each bottle contains 30 gummies.

What Do Our Organic Gummies Taste Like?

Cornbread Hemp's gummies feature natural flavors derived from non-GMO organic fruits. Committed to the highest quality, our gummies exclude high fructose corn syrup and artificial colors, using instead ingredients such as organic cane sugar and organic fruits. Our goal is to provide customers with a pure CBD experience with maximum therapeutic benefits in an all-natural treat that's organic, vegan, and gluten-free.

Consuming CBD Gummies

How much CBD should you take?

Wondering how many CBD gummies to take? The right CBD gummy serving size depends on the individual and such facts as your weight, metabolism, and tolerance.

When taking CBD gummies, it's important to know that it might take some time to start to notice the benefits — two weeks or even longer. We recommend starting at a baseline and working your way up from there gradually — by 10 mg of CBD, for example — every two weeks. To find your starting dose, multiply every 10 lbs of body weight by 1 mg of CBD. Once you achieve the effects you're looking for with CBD, you know you’ve found your ideal dosage.

Side Effects of CBD Gummies

While CBD is generally well-tolerated by most individuals, it's important to be aware of potential side effects, although they're typically mild in nature. Some reported side effects of CBD gummies may include:

  • Dry mouth: CBD may reduce saliva production, leading to dryness in the mouth. Staying hydrated can help counteract this.

  • Drowsiness: In some cases, especially when taken in higher doses, CBD gummies might cause drowsiness. Make sure you're taking the right dose for your body size, and take your CBD gummies before bed to reduce sleepiness.

  • Digestive issues: Some users have reported changes in appetite or mild digestive discomfort from taking CBD gummies. Eating a small snack with your gummies or adjusting the dosage may help reduce this.

  • Interactions with medications: CBD gummies can interact with certain medications, particularly those that come with a grapefruit warning. If you're taking medications, consult with your healthcare provider before starting your CBD gummy regimen.

Individual responses to CBD can vary. Starting with a low CBD dosage and gradually increasing it can help you find the optimal amount that suits your needs while minimizing unwanted effects.
