Our Hemp CBD Company

Co-founder Jim Higdon was an author before starting Cornbread Hemp. His first book was about 70 men from Kentucky who were arrested in the 1980's for the largest domestic marijuana syndicate in American history, which took place in his hometown of Marion County, Kentucky. That book was called ``The Cornbread Mafia.``

Headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, Cornbread Hemp is the #1 rated CBD company in the Bluegrass State. Our Kentucky hemp roots date back to 1775, when the first hemp plant was harvested in Springfield, Kentucky. Today, we source our hemp crop exclusively from USDA organic farmers in Kentucky.

Cornbread Hemp was founded by two cousins, Eric Zipperle and Jim Higdon, who are both native Kentuckians.

Cornbread Hemp products are sold in over 200 health food stores and pharmacies across the midwest and southeast, including all Fresh Thyme locations! Our USDA organic CBD gummies and oils are the most potent hemp products to ever be certified organic by the federal government. We pride ourselves on partnering with local, trusted retailers that support our mission of improving the quality of life throughout our world.

You're right to be skeptical about organic CBD products. Luckily, ours are for real! View our USDA organic certification paperwork to see for yourself.

Our Hemp CBD Products

Full spectrum CBD products contain CBD, THC, minor cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and other natural hemp plant compounds. Full spectrum CBD products must remain below 0.3% THC to be legal.

Yes, they actually are! View our certificate here. Our USDA organic CBD oils have been certified organic by the Kentucky Department of Agriculture. Our products meet a rigorous set of standards set by the USDA for pesticides, fertilizers, and much more.

CBD and the other full spectrum cannabinoids are produced in the flower of the hemp plant, not the stems, stalk, leaves, or other plant parts. Flower-Only™ means that the flowers of the hemp plant have been separated from the rest of the plant parts, instead of using the whole plant. The result is a higher quality full spectrum CBD extract that is free of unnecessary plant matter.

Before purchasing CBD products from a company, look for their hemp farm on the company website, or a hemp growing license. If they have a relationship with their hemp farmer, they will have photos and videos of the farm on the website, or a hemp license from their state. If you don’t find pictures of the hemp farm or a license, odds are that they don’t have one! This is what we refer to as a “White Label” CBD company, which should be avoided at all costs. Cornbread Hemp became the first CBD company in Kentucky to offer USDA organic CBD oils because we work with the best hemp farmers across the state who use only organic farming practices.

Our USDA organic CBD oils are made with only two certified organic ingredients: USDA organic Kentucky hemp extract and USDA organic coconut oil. That's it.

Absolutely! Cornbread Hemp sends every single batch to be tested by our third party lab testing partner. We never release a batch of CBD products for sale until we know for sure that it is 100% free of pesticides, heavy metals, mycotoxins, and microbes, and that the product label is accurate as it relates to CBD content. View our certificate of analysis for each batch at the link above, including our selection of CBD topicals and CBD oil for pets. We never hide our lab reports behind a batch number portal. You have access to our entire library of batch reports from the beginning of our company in 2019 when visiting our lab reports page.

We use organic sugarcane ethanol to extract our Flower-Only™ hemp CBD extract, with no stems or leaves included in the process. That means our CBD products don't have a harsh, bitter aftertaste that many full spectrum CBD products contain. Every product is tested for residual solvents at a third party lab before being made available for sale.

Heck no! We believe that cannabis is the world's most important natural remedy, so why would we distort its natural beauty? Our products contain a full spectrum of cannabinoids, including up to 0.3% THC and other minor cannabinoids.

Hemp cbd dosing & timing

The answer to this question isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. It is a step-by-step approach that acknowledges how the benefits of CBD, and how long it takes to achieve them, may differ from different delivery methods and the issue at hand.

How much CBD you take will depend on your age, weight, metabolism, and what issue you are trying to address. Cornbread Hemp offers Whole Flower and Distilled CBD oils in 25mg/ml and 50mg/ml formulations, to give you a variety of options for how much CBD to take.  

There are a variety of ways to take CBD, including capsules, gummies, sublingual oils, and topicals. Each method is better suited for different types of CBD consumers. Most of our customers prefer sublingual CBD oil, but everyone is different. That's why we also offer CBD capsules and topical CBD creams.

Hemp CBD Benefits & Reactions

CBD can have an immediate, noticeable effect, but often the effects of CBD are not seen until a few weeks of consistent daily use. A person's age, weight, metabolism, and genetics can affect how long it takes to feel the effects of CBD.  

The answer is a surprising yes. While CBD is not intoxicating, CBD could be considered psychoactive like other non-intoxicating substances, such as caffeine and chocolate, because it is considered a mood enhancer. CBD could be psychoactive, but it is not intoxicating. 

No! You cannot overdose on CBD. Taking too much CBD will not result in any major adverse effects. Any grown adult human over 150 pounds can take more than 100mg of CBD per day safely. The worst a person might experience from too much CBD is feeling drowsy, having a stomach ache, or mild diarrhea symptoms.

Yes, full-spectrum CBD oil can cause you to test positive for THC. We believe that because hemp-derived cannabinoids are legal, including THC as long as it remains under 0.3 percent, that employees should no longer face discrimination from employers for testing positive for hemp-derived cannabinoids. However, outdated beliefs about THC continue to influence workplace drug test policies. If you're concerned about a drug test, get a doctor's recommendation in writing, and get permission from your human resources department, also in writing. 

HEMP CBD's Legal status

Yes. CBD was legalized as part of the 2018 Farm Bill passed by Congress and signed by the president. The Farm Bill removed hemp from the list of illegal drugs, so long as the THC level does not exceed 0.3%. All products sold by Cornbread Hemp have been third-party lab tested to ensure compliance with this law. You can read more in our blogs, ``Is CBD legal?`` where we talk more about each state.

Yes. The TSA has stated that CBD products made legal under the Farm Bill are safe to fly with. You will not get in trouble at airport security for possessing CBD products from Cornbread Hemp anywhere within the United States.

Yes. It is perfectly legal to send and receive CBD products within the United States, according to the Farm Bill of 2018. Check with your state and local laws to make sure that CBD is legal in your area.
