Our passion for the finest CBD products is rooted in 250 years of Kentucky tradition.

In 2018, after realizing that there were no CBD companies making high quality full spectrum CBD products, cousins Eric & Jim began their journey to launch the first-ever USDA organic CBD company, made exclusively with Bluegrass Basin Hemp™.


Innovation & Integrity

Fast forward a few years and thousands of happy customers later, and the mission of Cornbread Hemp remains the same: to improve your quality of life with the highest quality CBD.


More Potent, Less Plant.

If you're experienced with quality cannabis, then you know the stems and leaves don't contain CBD. So why does Corporate CBD use the "whole plant" - instead of just the CBD flowers? We think you'll be shocked to learn the answer.


Our mission is to improve your quality of life.

Building on 250 years of Kentucky hemp tradition, Cornbread Hemp continues the Bluegrass State's legacy of delivering the highest quality cannabis products available.
