The Best CBD Products from Cornbread Hemp

The Best CBD Products from Cornbread Hemp


In the ever-growing CBD market, navigating through the thousands of CBD products that are now available can be a daunting task. Among the many CBD brands out there, Cornbread Hemp stands out for setting the standard for quality and transparency. Keep reading to learn more about what makes Cornbread Hemp different — from their commitment to organic farming practices to their trademarked “Flower Only” full spectrum formula — as well as their five best CBD products.

First of all, what exactly is CBD?

There’s no doubt you’ve seen and heard the word “CBD” all over the place, but what exactly is it and what does it have to do with cannabis? Short for “cannabidiol,” CBD is a type of cannabinoid, a compound found in the cannabis plant.

Cannabis has two varieties, hemp and marijuana. Each of these has over 100 cannabinoids. While marijuana boasts larger quantities of a cannabinoid known as THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is well-known for producing a “high” feeling, legal hemp has extremely low quantities of THC (0.3% or lower to be exact) and lots of non-intoxicating CBD. 

If CBD doesn’t get you high, what does it do? To answer this question, it’s important to understand a bit about the “endocannabinoid system,” or ECS for short.

CBD and the ECS

Inside of our bodies we have an “endocannabinoid system,” with “endo” meaning “within.” This is to say we naturally produce cannabinoids (called endocannabinoids), which interact with specific receptors located throughout the body. Both endocannabinoids and exogenous cannabinoids (cannabinoids produced outside the body) bind with or influence the ECS receptors in order to regulate various vital functions including:

  • Sleep

  • Appetite 

  • Digestion

  • Stress response

  • Immune response

Benefits of CBD

The extensive distribution of ECS receptors throughout the various systems of our bodies may explain why CBD can make such a difference in our health and well-being. Some of the most noticeable health benefits of CBD include:

  • Improved sleep

  • Relief from aches and pains, especially those associated with exercise-induced inflammation

  • Stress reduction

  • Improved mood

The effects of CBD vary person to person as well as by the type and quality of the CBD product.

Is CBD legal?

Hemp derived CBD products are legal in the U.S. under the 2018 Farm Bill1, which legalized their cultivation and sale as long as they contain less than 0.3% THC. However, the legal status can vary by state, so make sure to check with your state's regulations.

Types of CBD

There are three types of CBD to be aware of as you shop for CBD oils and other cannabidiol products:

CBD Isolate Products

CBD isolate is just what it sounds like, 100% pure CBD, with no other cannabinoids, terpenes, or flavonoids.

Broad Spectrum CBD Oil

Broad spectrum is the next step up from CBD isolate in terms of its cannabinoid content, as it contains the various other compounds found in the cannabis plant. It doesn’t have the psychoactive cannabinoid THC, however.

Full Spectrum CBD Products

Full spectrum contains not just CBD, but all the other cannabis compounds. It even includes, unlike broad spectrum CBD, a very small amount of THC — no more than 0.3%. This is just the right amount to produce what’s known as the “entourage effect” — when all the various cannabis compounds work together to maximize the effects of CBD oil — without triggering any psychoactive effects.

For this reason, of the three types of CBD, a full spectrum formula offers the greatest wellness benefits.

What to Look for in a High Quality CBD Brand

Before we dive into the best CBD products from Cornbread Hemp, it’s important to understand what amounts to a high-quality CBD product in the first place, especially when considering their use as dietary supplements. This way you can be sure that no matter what CBD product you end up choosing, it will produce the benefits you’re hoping for.

As with most wellness products, not all CBD is created equal. Because the CBD industry is unregulated2, a sizable number of brands can get away with selling shoddy or downright fraudulent CBD products, which may not even contain any CBD at all. They may even contain harmful ingredients like heavy metals, pesticides, or illegal levels of THC.

When shopping for CBD, do your due diligence to ensure the product you choose offers the following:

USDA Organic Certification

Hemp is known as a "bioaccumulator.” That means hemp has a remarkable capacity to absorb heavy metals, pesticides, and other harmful contaminants from the soil at a rate faster than it can release them. This means that CBD made from compromised hemp will contain the very same contaminants as the soil in which it was grown. This makes it especially important to purchase CBD supplements that are certified organic. Look for the USDA organic seal to make sure you’re purchasing a safe, responsibly sourced product that adheres to the USDA’s stringent organic farming guidelines.

Third Party Testing

Credible cannabinoid brands use third party testing in order to verify the content of their cannabinoid products. In addition to confirming cannabinoid quantities, such tests also report the presence of any contaminants, such as heavy metals, pesticides, chemical solvents, bacteria, or mold. Such information is found in the form of a Certificate of Analysis (COA), which is typically available online on product description pages and sometimes via QR code on a product's packaging. If you can’t locate any third party test results when reviewing a product, move on and find another product that does offer a COA.

Full Spectrum CBD Formulations

As mentioned above, a full spectrum CBD supplement, which contains a variety of cannabis compounds as well as THC (up to 0.3%), is the only way to fully stimulate the entourage effect. This will allow you to get the most out of your CBD product.

CBD Extraction Method

When it comes to extracting CBD from the cannabis plant, there's more than one way to skin a cat. The extraction method selected by a CBD manufacturer can have a huge impact on product quality. Here are some of the most popular ones:

CO2 CBD Extraction

This commonly used full spectrum CBD extraction method uses carbon dioxide (CO2) in a supercritical form. (This means the C02 is under extreme pressure, making it act somewhat like both a liquid and a gas at the same time.) While efficient for processing hemp trimmings (as opposed to the CBD-rich flowers), the process's extremes in terms of temperature and pressure can result in a harsh taste. Although cost-effective and automated, CO2 extractions cannot be certified organic because of possible contamination by other chemicals.

Butane CBD Extraction

Butane, a highly flammable and dangerous gas, has been used as a solvent in cannabis extraction for a long time. Essentially, butane contained within a sealed system is washed over cannabis to release CBD and other compounds. Then the mixture must be carefully heated to separate butane from the extracted compounds. Solvent extraction, including butane, may extract impurities or other substances from the plant material beyond the desired cannabinoids, resulting in an unpleasant taste. As butane is toxic, improper extraction can lead to adverse health effects, and even death. Butane extracts cannot be certified organic because butane is a synthetic petrochemical. 

Ethanol CBD Extraction

Ethanol extraction is similar to butane extraction, except ethanol is used as the solvent instead. Ethanol is usually required by law to be sold as denatured alcohol, which contains additives that make it bad-tasting and foul-smelling to discourage drinking because it's a poisonous substance. The method can be effective, but ethanol must meet certain standards for the extraction to be considered organic (see below).

Organic Sugarcane Ethanol CBD Extraction

Considered by many to be the safest and most effective method, organic sugarcane ethanol extraction is the only one we use at Cornbread Hemp. The process is similar to other solvent extraction methods, but the ethanol is derived from organic sugarcane (essentially super–high proof rum that isn't denatured), thereby adhering to the USDA's strict organic standards. This gentle process compliments the hemp flower flavor while maintaining CBD purity.

1. Whole Flower USDA Organic CBD Oil

Whole Flower USDA Organic CBD Oil

Unlike the vast majority of CBD products available on the market, Cornbread Hemp CBD Oil is USDA certified organic and made from Flower Only extract, as CBD is primarily found in the flower buds of the hemp plant. Whereas most manufacturers process the stalks, leaves, and other parts of the hemp plant, Cornbread Hemp extracts CBD from hemp flowers only, which means a superior floral, earthy aroma and taste and a more potent, CBD-rich extract for maximum therapeutic benefits.

The product comes in three strengths — 750 mg, 1500 mg, and 375 mg. With up to 2 mg of THC per serving, this CBD oil provides a comprehensive full spectrum experience, enabling the “entourage effect” — the synergistic interaction between all the various cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids present.

Unlike flavored alternatives, Cornbread Hemp’s Whole Flower USDA Organic CBD Oil contains no additional flavorings or preservatives, ensuring a pure and unadulterated CBD experience. The only other ingredient besides organic hemp flower extract is organic MCT oil (from coconut oil), which studies show enhances the bioavailability (or absorption) of cannabinoids.

2. Cornbread Hemp Full Spectrum CBD Gummies

Cornbread Hemp Full Spectrum CBD Gummies

Cornbread Hemp is one of the only brands in the industry to offer full spectrum CBD gummies that are made with Flower-OnlyTM hemp extract — without additives like high-fructose corn syrup, gelatin, or artificial colors. Made with fruit pectin instead of gelatin, they’re also vegan-friendly. Like all of our other products, they are USDA organic throughout every step of the process and third-party lab tested, ensuring the highest quality and purity. 

Our Full Spectrum CBD Gummies are a convenient way to incorporate the benefits of CBD into your daily routine with easy dosing and convenient consumption. You can choose from three strengths — 750 mg, 1500 mg, and 300 mg. This amounts to 10 mg, 20 mg, and 25 mg per serving, respectively. With up to 2 mg of THC per serving, these gummies offer a full spectrum of cannabinoids for a comprehensive wellness experience. 

Each of our three flavors — watermelon, peach, and berry — are flavored with organic fruit, and tastes like it.

3. Cornbread Hemp CBD Sleep Gummies

Cornbread Hemp CBD Sleep Gummies

Cornbread Hemp’s CBD Sleep Gummies are specially designed to support a restful night's sleep naturally without any next-day grogginess. As with every Cornbread Hemp product, CBD sleep gummies contain USDA organic certified, Flower-OnlyTM full spectrum CBD oil with 2 mg of THC in every serving. 

A USDA-certified organic product, every ingredient is organically grown, including valerian root to support relaxation, chamomile to aid in stress reduction, and lavender to promote a sense of calm. These gummies also stand out for their melatonin-free formula. This is because melatonin may affect individuals differently, causing side effects, such as vivid dreams or daytime drowsiness, or the potential for long-term concerns such as dependency.

CBD Sleep Gummies are available in two strengths, 750 mg and 1500 mg.

4. Full Spectrum CBD Capsules

There are only three ingredients: MCT coconut oil, full spectrum extract, and a porcine gelatin capsule.

5. Cornbread Hemp CBD Lotion + Menthol

Designed for exercise-induced inflammation, Cornbread Hemp’s CBD Lotion + Menthol is formulated to absorb quickly, providing rapid and targeted pain relief to sore muscles and joints.

The addition  of menthol adds a soothing and cooling element to enhance the overall experience. This can be particularly beneficial for those seeking comfort from aches and pains or tension in specific areas. Our newest formulation is now 50% stronger, ensuring stronger relief for users.
