A quick look at Cornbread Hemp CBD products

This article discusses what Cornbread Hemp is, the benefits and drawbacks of purchasing from this company, and the products it offers.

Is CBD legal?The 2018 Farm Bill removed hemp from the legal definition of marijuana in the Controlled Substances Act. This made some hemp-derived CBD products with less than 0.3% THC federally legal. However, CBD products containing more than 0.3% THC still fall under the legal definition of marijuana, making them federally illegal but legal under some state laws. Be sure to check state laws, especially when traveling. Also, keep in mind that the FDA has not approved nonprescription CBD products, and some products may be inaccurately labeled.

There are several terms that people new to CBD may not know. The following table provides definitions for common terms people may come across when purchasing these products.

TermMeaning
CBDA compound within the C. sativa plant that does not create the high sensation individuals commonly associate with cannabis use.
THCA compound in the C. sativa plant. It is the psychoactive compound that creates the high sensation from cannabis use.
Full-spectrumA full-spectrum product will contain all of the natural compounds in the cannabis plant, including THC. However, THC levels must be no more than 0.3% to comply with Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulation on full-spectrum CBD products.
Broad-spectrumBroad-spectrum products contain natural compounds of the cannabis plant. However, while manufacturers remove all or most of the THC in broad-spectrum CBD, it may still be present in trace amounts.
CBD isolateThis is the purest form of CBD and should contain 0% THC.
CannabinoidsThe compounds within the cannabis plant, of which there are over 120. CBD is the second richest compound in the plant after THC.
TerpenesAnother compound of the C. sativa plant, terpenes typically give plants their specific aromas. Some terpenes, such as limonene, may have specific health benefits.
Certificate of analysis (COA)Reputable manufacturers of CBD products should ensure a COA is available for inspection. A COA provides information on the third-party testing that independent labs conduct on a particular product. Sometimes, products will have a scannable smartphone code that directs people to the COA online.

Cornbread Hemp offers oil, edible, and topical CBD products.

The company states that it aims to provide high quality, full-spectrum CBD products. The company mostly uses USDA-certified ingredients, such as hemp from Kentucky, and states that it only uses hemp flowers instead of the whole plant.

The company’s two founders, Eric Zipperle and Jim Higdon, work with Kentucky farmers and say that Cornbread Hemp helps build on 250 years of Kentucky hemp tradition.

All of Cornbread Hemp’s products are third-party lab tested. This means independent labs test each batch to ensure the labeling is correct and the products are free of substances such as pesticides, heavy metals, and mycotoxins.

Cornbread Hemp may be a good option for people who are interested in using certified organic, full-spectrum CBD from hemp flowers.

The company provides CBD in many different forms, such as topicals, edibles, and oils. This may mean that most people can find a form of CBD that best suits them.

For example, people who prefer targeted relief while using CBD may prefer to use topical products. Edibles, on the other hand, are more convenient to travel with and consume on the go.

However, Cornbread Hemp is not suitable for people who prefer broad-spectrum or CBD isolate products. Full-spectrum products contain up to 0.3% THC, whereas broad-spectrum contain trace amounts, and CBD isolate does not contain any THC.

A 2021 study of over 300 people who used CBD to self-manage health conditions and well-being, such as stress, anxiety, and difficulty sleeping, found that the participants’ self-reported CBD usage helped manage these conditions.

A retrospective, observational study found that CBD may be helpful for people who had moderate to severe symptoms of pain, depression, and anxiety. However, CBD did not seem to make a difference for people with mild symptoms.
