OFFICIAL CBD GUIDE
Finding the best CBD.
OFFICIAL CBD GUIDE
Over the last 10 years, there’s been a major shift in opinion towards cannabis-related therapies. With hemp-derived CBD wellness products, that trend has only increased. That’s why we have built this official guide to finding the best CBD oil for you.
Traditional medical costs are skyrocketing.1 Insurance rates are going up.2 And more Americans feel helpless when confronting their wellness needs.
Luckily, full spectrum CBD oil has been made legal nationwide!
As a result, millions of Americans are turning to this new wellness option. Because of this turn in consumer spending, thousands of CBD brands have popped up almost overnight hoping to make a quick buck.
The problem is, nearly every CBD company is just trying to sell you the cheapest CBD extract possible in order to make the biggest profit for themselves.
Unfortunately they are also causing a mountain of misinformation about CBD. The cheap stuff just isn’t effective. That makes it even harder for good CBD companies to convince skeptical consumers that CBD really works.
But don’t give up now! If you’re reading this, you have officially struck CBD gold!
We are going to debunk the lies and myths that those cheap CBD brands spread. And we will show you actual proof that high quality CBD can give you real results for general wellness.
Before we go any further, check out the reviews below from verified Cornbread Hemp customers. We get new reviews practically every day! It’s pretty clear who our customers think provides the best CBD.

Official CBD Guide
So, who are the perfect candidates for CBD?
Because CBD has impacted so many different people in so many different ways, it can be difficult to keep track of what CBD might be helpful for. Luckily, you have us here at Cornbread Hemp to keep you updated on everything there is to know about finding the best CBD.
Here’s a quick breakdown of who the perfect candidates are for trying CBD:
CBD for Comfort
Whether it’s in your back, your knees, or your hands, persistent discomfort can be one of the most debilitating conditions a person can suffer from. Many CBD customers are looking for comfort when they purchase CBD. Athletes with muscle soreness and exercise-related inflammation are also flocking to the best CBD. If you are suffering from any kind of physical discomfort, then you are a great candidate for CBD.
Twenty-two percent of CBD users told Consumer Reports in a survey published in April 2019 that CBD helped them stop taking another drug. Of those people, 47% said that CBD helped them stop taking an over-the-counter drug — that’s about 10% of the total survey, which means about 100 out of 1,000 people told Consumer Reports that they stopped taking over-the-counter drugs after switching to CBD. Another 36% said they stopped taking prescription opioids after starting CBD.3
CBD for Everyday Stress
Sometimes, everyday stress is too much to handle. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a natural product that could help? Of the CBD users who told Consumer Reports they stopped taking another medication when they started using CBD, a solid one-third of them, 33%, said that CBD helped them stop taking prescription anti-anxiety drugs.4 If you are looking for something natural and non-addictive, then you are a perfect candidate to try CBD to gain control over your reaction to stress.
CBD for Better Sleep
If you have trouble sleeping at night, you are not alone. But who wants to start taking habit-forming sleep aids or prescription sleep medications with crazy side effects? Among the CBD users surveyed by Consumer Reports, 22% said they stopped using prescription sleep drugs when they started taking CBD.5 If you have issues getting to sleep at night or staying asleep through the night, then you are a perfect candidate to try CBD.
CBD for Dogs and Cats
Our pet-owner customers report that their dogs and cats enjoy the benefits of CBD as much as anybody, and for the same reasons: older pets with mobility issues can get a new spring in their step when introduced to CBD for pets. For cats and younger dogs, CBD can really help chill them out. Whether they get agitated during separation, thunderstorms, or bath-time — dog owners report to us that CBD helps their pet through it.
We receive emails and reviews from customers all across the country telling us their dog is finally jumping back up on the bed again. If your dog or cat is less mobile than they used to be, they are perfect candidates to try CBD.
Sometimes people tell us: “I tried CBD, and it didn’t help me.”
Nothing is more frustrating to us than when someone tells us they tried CBD, but it didn’t work for them. That leaves us with a lot of questions because we know it works for us. Cornbread Hemp products have had a profound impact on our health. And verified customers have left more than 400 five-star reviews. Since we know CBD works, we took a deep dive into why some people would have a non-responsive experience while others tout its benefits. That deep dive into CBD manufacturing caused us to dig into every possible variable of the process to ensure we produced the best CBD oil possible.
The first step of the process is extraction, when the cannabinoids are separated from the plant matter.6 Bad extraction can lead to bad results. Bad extractors use dangerous solvents like butane or propane to extract CBD. Other CBD companies use supercritical carbon-dioxide for CBD extraction. That’s a fine method because it’s regarded as safe. But at Cornbread Hemp, we do it differently.
To be certified organic, even our extraction method must be organic. That means we extract our CBD with certified organic sugarcane ethanol.
But before we tell you any more of our manufacturing secrets, we need to educate you on the finer points of the CBD manufacturing process. This will help you keep an eye out for a few of the dishonest techniques used to market low-quality hemp products that don’t work.
If you tried to use CBD before and it didn’t work, here are a few simple steps to make sure that doesn’t happen again.
#1: DON’T BUY CBD ON AMAZON
Here’s why you should not shop for CBD on Amazon: Amazon does not allow anything labeled “CBD” to be sold on its site. But it does allow products labeled with "hemp." Untrustworthy companies create products to play within these Amazon rules, even marketing them as anxiety and pain relieving supplements. That only leads to more confusion for the consumer, and you don’t have time for that.
Here’s how they do it: they label products with “hemp oil” and a number that looks like a dosage, “3000 mg.” But you need to look very carefully at the listing. That mg level is usually a dosage of hempseed oil that the company mixed into the product, and therefore not a measure of CBD content.
Hempseed oil, which has all the wellness value of olive oil, has been legal in the US for over 10 years. It is simply the oil of pressed hemp seeds and contains no CBD.
CBD comes only from the female flower of the hemp plant, or the “bud.”7 Hempseed oil doesn’t contain any CBD, and won’t be of any assistance in helping you achieve the highest levels of general wellness.
For this reason, the best CBD companies like Cornbread Hemp are hesitant to offer our full line of products on Amazon, and we sure as heck don’t sell hempseed oil. Until Amazon gets its act together, informed consumers SHOULD NOT buy hemp products on Amazon, especially when looking for the best CBD oil.
#2: FULL SPECTRUM CBD vs. CBD ISOLATE
The first question to ask of any CBD product: Is it full spectrum? To receive the most powerful results from CBD, studies show that a hemp extract containing a full spectrum of cannabinoids is the most beneficial.8 What does full spectrum mean? That means the product contains the entire spectrum of cannabinoids, including CBG, CBC, CBN, and the infamous THC.9 CBD isolate, which is medical-grade CBD isolated to 99% purity, has no spectrum of minor cannabinoids.
Normally in plant-based pharmaceutical research, when a plant is identified as having medicinal properties, scientists isolate the plant’s medicinal compound down to 99% purity. A vast amount of CBD products are made with this 99% pure CBD isolate, and often market themselves as higher quality because they are “THC free.” Just remember: the best CBD oil is full spectrum. And that means it includes a little THC.10
In 2015, a team of Israeli scientists published a study on the effects of CBD for inflammation in the Journal of Pharmacology & Pharmacy entitled: “Overcoming the bell-shaped dose-response of CBD by using cannabis extract enriched with CBD.11
Source: Journal of Pharmacology & Pharmacy
Quick translation: when scientists isolated CBD to 99% purity, they noticed a drop-off of effects at higher doses.12
A sweet spot exists where a patient could feel the effects, but at a higher dose of CBD isolate those effects did not increase. That is the “bell-shaped dose-response”13 in the title. This means that CBD isolate only works to a certain dosage, but then higher doses do not yield better results.14 However, when scientists used full spectrum cannabis extract, they were able to overcome this drop-off to gain better effects at higher doses.
How? Because there are other cannabinoids in hemp extracts, not just CBD. And all of these cannabinoids work together much more powerfully in what has become known as the “entourage effect.”15 The entourage effect is what can provide the most impactful benefits from full spectrum hemp products. CBD isolate does not contain any other cannabinoids and therefore won’t have nearly the same effect. That is why CBD isolate is not the best CBD for your needs.
Full spectrum CBD products work better than products made from CBD isolate. And you probably guessed it, Cornbread Hemp products are ALWAYS full spectrum! That’s what it takes to the best the CBD brand in America, but we don’t stop there.
We’re about to reveal the MAJOR SECRET that sets our full spectrum hemp CBD products apart from our competitors.
#3: WHOLE PLANT CBD vs DISTILLED
Have you tried CBD oil before? If so, you most likely took a thick brown oil that tasted harsh, bitter, and grassy. Almost all full spectrum hemp products have less than 50% CBD in their whole plant hemp oil formula. Much of the rest of the extract is plant matter that gives the oil a grassy flavor and bitter aftertaste.
Any CBD product with an added flavoring — mint, cinnamon, etc. — is an attempt to cover up the bad taste of the underlying extract. We don’t need to do that at Cornbread Hemp.
We make two kinds of CBD oil at Cornbread Hemp — Whole Plant and Distilled — and both are USDA certified organic!
Our Whole Plant CBD oil doesn’t taste grassy or bitter. And it doesn’t require a cover flavor. Why? Because it’s organic. There’s not a more natural whole plant CBD oil on the market than Cornbread Hemp’s certified organic whole plant CBD oil. It tastes floral, not grassy. And there’s no need for a cover flavor because it’s smooth and not bitter. That’s because we extract it using organic sugarcane ethanol.
But there’s another step beyond whole plant extraction to create the best CBD oil we can make — and that’s distilling the oil to an even higher level of purity.
Distillation increases CBD purity and removes grassy-tasting plant matter while keeping a full spectrum of cannabinoids — as long as you distill in the “goldilocks” zone of purity of around 75 to 80%. Any higher, the extract begins to lose the full spectrum. That’s what some brands market as “broad spectrum” or “THC-free.” That’s not what we are looking for. We distill our CBD to 75% purity and then stop.
This distillation process does not create an alcohol content because there is no fermentation involved. We simply filter out the plant matter to increase cannabinoid purity.
Despite being non-alcoholic, CBD distillation relies on the same distilling principles that have guided the Kentucky bourbon industry for 200 years.
The CBD oil industry emerged out of Colorado laboratories around 2014. The chemists in those labs knew how to make whole plant extracts, distillates, and isolates, but they had no idea which one was good, or better, or best. But in Kentucky, we have been distilling grain for centuries. We know which ways are best.
Nearly all CBD companies simply take the first run of extracted hemp crude oil, which is less than 50% CBD, and mix it with a carrier oil before bottling that mixture to sell. Regular, non-organic hemp crude oil is a thick, harsh brown sludge, which must be heated in order to properly mix. It is NOT the cleanest or best form of cannabinoids. It is the most common because it is the cheapest.
Products made from non-organic CBD crude oil are dark brown CBD oils that taste as grassy as lawn clippings unless they add a masking flavor. All of that leftover plant matter creates barriers for the cannabinoids to penetrate into your system.
Distilled CBD products penetrate faster into your system because they are much more bioavailable than CBD capsules. It’s pretty simple: by distilling out the plant matter, there is less material in the way of the cannabinoids entering your blood stream. And just like our organic whole plant oil, we have no need for cover flavors in our distilled CBD oil because Cornbread Hemp CBD oil already tastes great naturally!
Cornbread Hemp distilled CBD products are highly rated and reviewed by 350+ customers just like you. Want to learn even more about our process? Check out our graphic below to better understand the Cornbread Hemp difference.

#4: THIRD PARTY LAB ANALYSIS
Now that you are an educated CBD consumer, it’s time to understand the importance of a third-party lab analysis. Inside the CBD world, these lab tests are often referred to a “CoA’s,” which is short of Certificate of Analysis. Every legitimate CBD product label should contain a QR code that takes the user to the company’s library of CoA’s.16
When shopping for the best CBD — not the junk you can buy at the gas station — you will notice that the price tags aren’t cheap. Lab reports are here to help you make sure that when you invest your hard-earned money into a bottle of high quality CBD oil, you always get what you pay for.
It is important that a reputable CBD brand has these tests conducted by an independent third party lab, and not by an an in-house chemist. These test results can easily be manipulated if the company is producing the CoA themselves.
There are no federal regulations in place for CBD oil production. As a result, CBD companies can get away with putting just about anything in their products, even harmful substances like synthetic cannabinoids.
Third-party lab tests, and certificates of analysis or COAs, guarantee the safety of the best CBD oils. You should make sure that the tests include results for pesticides, residual solvents, mycotoxins, microbials, and heavy metals.
The ONLY way to ensure that you are getting safe and effective CBD products is by insisting on an unbiased, third-party lab report.
#5: Certified Organic
The best CBD oil will have a USDA certified organic seal. This assures the customer up front that the product was made without any pesticides or other harmful chemicals.
In order to carry a USDA certified organic seal, every ingredient and every step of the manufacturing process must meet specific criteria detailed in federal guidelines. This includes many factors including soil quality, and farming practices like pest and weed control. Without FDA oversight of the CBD industry, there is no other way to tell if a CBD product meets a certain standard. So always look for the USDA organic seal on the CBD products you buy.17
Cornbread Hemp works with organic farmers in Kentucky to grow non-GMO seeds into organic hemp that is rich in phytocannabinoids like CBD. Then, we extract the CBD using organic sugarcane ethanol. To finish, we mix the extract with organic coconut oil. This is how we produce the region’s only USDA certified organic CBD oil.
While the organic seal is trustworthy, customers should still research the product further to ensure they are getting the best CBD oil.
#6: Protected Against CBD Counterfeiting
There are multi-national criminal rings constantly looking to exploit unsuspecting CBD users by counterfeiting good CBD products and replacing them with junk. We know that at Cornbread Hemp because we were the victim of counterfeiting in 2019. After that, we partnered with CannVerify to ensure it would never happen again.
CannVerify is a company that offers consumers protection against counterfeit products. They use a multi-step verification process to ensure that every product has its own serial number and QR code that cannot be duplicated.
When you purchase a Cornbread Hemp product, you will notice a holographic sticker with a QR code and a scratch-off PIN. Scanning the code with your smartphone camera app will take you to the CannVerify authentication portal. CannVerify will confirm that the PIN and QR code matches their database. The system confirms that authentic products are safe, and alerts the user if the PIN has already been used before, which means it is counterfeit.
Cornbread Hemp is the only CBD company (that we know of!) to use these anti-counterfeiting holograms on USDA certified organic CBD oils.
NOW YOU KNOW WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN THE BEST CBD OIL.
TIP #1: THE PROPER DOSE OF CBD
Everyone is different. So determining your best dosage of CBD should be something that is done on an individual basis, depending on body type, metabolism, age, genetics, and the conditions you are dealing with.18
At Cornbread Hemp, we like to keep things simple. Our CBD capsules are 25mg each, and our CBD oil has 25mg in one full dropper. Each bottle contains 30 servings for 750mg total, designed to be a one-month supply. For many people, 25mg of CBD per day is enough to provide powerful relief. For others, a higher dose of CBD may be needed. We now carry double-strength formulas of our Whole Plant and Distilled, packing 50mg of CBD into a full dropper for those needing a higher potency.
If you are new to CBD, try taking a higher amount at the beginning to jump-start the effects. It is safe to take a full 25mg serving 2 or 3 times per day for the first few days, then back it down to one serving per day once you start feeling the effects.
Some people can get by on 25mg of CBD oil. But as we mentioned, there are others that require a higher potency to address their issues.
Cornbread Hemp’s 1500mg Whole Plant and Distilled formulas are as strong as possible. Each of them are USDA certified organic, and every dropperful has 50mg of full spectrum CBD oil. The strength of these oils backed by our strict company standards, makes these the best high potency organic full spectrum CBD oils on the market.
The 1500mg Whole Plant has 0.23% THC, the highest amount in any of our products. We love to recommend it for nighttime use because the terpene and THC content is so high. This oil is a beautiful deep dark amber from all the plant matter. And the taste is even more hempy and robust than our original 750mg formula, but still smooth from the organic ethanol extraction.
The 1500mg Distilled formula packs 50mg of 75% pure CBD into every dropper. Cornbread Hemp’s distilling process removes all of the plant matter from the Distilled formula while keeping the full spectrum of phytocannabinoids. This oil is clear and pure with a very mild fruity flavor that appeals to everyone.
TIP #2: THE BEST CBD, CAPSULES OR OIL?
Taking CBD oil sublingually — “under the tongue” — is the quickest way for the body to absorb CBD oil because it goes through the mucus membrane in your mouth rather than through your liver. We recommended that you hold the oil under your tongue for 30 to 60 seconds, then swish it around your mouth to allow for absorption into the capillaries before swallowing.19
Once CBD oil gets inside your stomach, it gets filtered by the liver before entering your blood stream. So for most people who want the quickest relief, the best CBD oil benefits will come if taken sublingually (under the tongue).
CBD capsules, on the other hand, can be best for people with certain issues.
In the early days of CBD when all CBD oil products tasted really nasty, capsules were a way of taking CBD while avoiding the taste. But certified organic CBD like Cornbread Hemp’s products has solved the problem of bad-tasting CBD oil. That reduces the need to take CBD capsules, but doesn’t eliminate it entirely.
In a Consumer Reports survey of more than 1,000 CBD users, 15% of CBD users took CBD as a capsule.20 Here’s a few reasons why they might chose capsules over oil:
- For digestive issues, CBD capsules might be better because it gets the CBD deeper into the gut to attack the problem where it occurs.
- Even though CBD oil under the tongue penetrates quicker, we have several customers who swear by the CBD capsules for the most powerful benefits. Everyone is different!
- Some folks might be uncomfortable or unable to take a dropper of oil under the tongue, especially if they already have pill organizers set out for the week. It could just be easier to administer CBD capsules into your routine this way.
TIP #3: SIDE EFFECTS OF CBD
If you take any regular medication, you should talk to your doctor before trying CBD.21 Ask your doctor about possible side effects of your existing medications. CBD has very few side effects,22 but if you’re taking CBD in conjunction with other medications, you’ll probably want to talk to your doctor about it, so here’s what you need to know to have that conversation:
CBD has minimal documented side effects.23 For instance, if you take too much CBD you could feel groggy when you wake up in the morning. If you really take too much, you could experience some minor diarrhea symptoms as your body flushes it out.
But there’s one set of side effects you need to be very aware of when you start taking CBD — its effects with other medications.
CBD can have a synergistic effect with other drugs, which means it could change the way you metabolize other drugs in your body. You may experience side effects of your other medication as it interacts with the CBD.
That’s why you should talk with your doctor before starting CBD if you’re on other medications.
According to that Consumer Reports survey, 22% of respondents said that CBD helped them stop using another drug completely. Of those, 47% said CBD helped them stop taking an over-the-counter drug (like certain name-brand pain relievers); 36% said a prescription opioid for pain relief; 33% said a prescription anti-anxiety drug; and 22% said a prescription sleep drug.24
If you take regular medications, you should talk to your doctor before trying CBD. Ask your doctor about possible side effects of your existing medications.
TIP #4: CBD Won’t Get You High
One of the most common questions we receive from those new to CBD is whether CBD has a risk of getting someone high. The answer is no. However, you might be surprised to know that although it doesn’t get you high, CBD is still psychoactive. The difference is that CBD is not an intoxicant. It won’t alter your ability to make decisions or operate as you normally would. However, it does have an effect on your mood and general quality of life.25 For this reason, our pharmacist, Dr. Leslie Mudd, considers CBD to be psychoactive, in a similar way that caffeine and chocolate can be psychoactive but not intoxicating.
Don’t let that scare you. If the most potent full spectrum CBD products are what you’re after, then you might not be surprised to hear that the entourage effect can certainly catch new CBD users off guard their first few times using it. The results of CBD and THC together can be astounding!
Even though full spectrum CBD oil contains up to 0.3% THC, this is not nearly enough to get someone high.
TIP #5: CBD Can Make You Fail a Drug Test
OK, so now you know that most CBD products that are worth anything most likely contain trace amounts of THC. That’s important because that micro-dose of THC in full spectrum hemp extract could be enough to make someone fail a drug test.26 When you ingest any CBD product, even if it is advertised as THC-free, you run the risk of testing positive during a drug screening. That is because many labs around the country still perform tests for THC with out-dated equipment that pick up any cannabinoids present whatsoever, including CBD, and register it as testing positive for THC.
If you think you may be drug tested while using CBD, make sure to talk to your HR department before beginning.
We’ve never heard of anyone testing positive on a drug test from taking our CBD products, and we want to keep it that way. This is your warning that all Cornbread Hemp products could potentially put you at risk of testing positive for THC. But that’s a big reason why they actually work.
TIP #6: CBD Stands for Cannabidiol27
For some reason, there seems to be major confusion around the acronym CBD. These three letters have all but taken the country by storm in the past few years, and most of us still don’t even know what it means. CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is the cannabinoid that hemp produces which all of us are seeking to possibly help improve our quality of life. Cannabidiol is produced naturally in the cannabis plant along with about another 150 cannabinoids, dozens of terpenes, and a variety of other beneficial compounds.
Since the 1960’s, the most popular cannabinoid had been THC, or more precisely: delta-9 tetra cannabidiol. But since 2014, CBD has taken its place next to THC as the two most important phytocannabinoids.
