Cornbread Hemp at a Glance
Cornbread Hemp was founded by Jim Higdon and Eric Zipperle.
Jim Higdon is from Lebanon, Kentucky. He comes from a writing and journalism background, having worked for the New York Times before writing his first book in 2012, The Cornbread Mafia. His decision to start a CBD brand stemmed from an article he was working on about a hemp harvest in Kentucky in 2018.
While there, he realized that the industry was lacking a brand that represented what the hemp industry really has to offer, while also helping to fix the damage done due to cannabis prohibition.
His partner, Eric Zipperle, came into the partnership with the business and finance experience necessary to running a successful business. Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, he had already helped open two e-commerce business startups and was a personal cannabis user to help cope with daily migraines due to a previous traumatic brain injury.
It was this experience that brought Zipperle and Higdon together and cemented Zipperle’s personal mission to let everyone experience how much the plant can help without stigma or obstacles in the way.
A Kentucky proud company, Cornbread Hemp was created as a way to honor the state’s long-standing hemp growing history. The name comes from a news story from June 1989, that coined the term “Cornbread Mafia” to describe a group of outlaw marijuana farmers who grew more than 200 tons spread across just 30 farms.
Cornbread Hemp was founded on the belief that Kentucky is the best place in the world to grow hemp, as it sits on the 37th parallel latitude line, the same line where the Hindu Kush mountains reside.
They also offer a subscription option through their Cornbread Hemp Autoship Program, which also comes with 15-percent off and free shipping. Any products you choose will be automatically shipped to you every month and can be paused, changed, or skipped at any time without penalty.
Cornbread Hemp Product Review Highlights
The most popular products Cornbread Hemp sells are its CBD oils, capsules, and their CBD for pets.
Their top seller is their Original Formula Full-Spectrum CBD Oil. Each one-ounce bottle contains 750 mg of CBD (about 30 servings), which can be taken either in the morning or at night, depending on the intended effect, and was designed without added flavors. They also sell “mini” half-ounce bottles of their whole-plant and distilled formulas, as well as two other USDA organic formulas.
They also use their full-spectrum CBD oil in capsules. Every softgel capsule is packed with 25 mg of CBD, for users who like the convenience of a capsule over an oil. They come very highly reviewed, but it should be noted that they do use porcine gelatin to make the capsule, which means they are not vegetarian.
Cornbread Hemp’s CBD Oil for Pets comes in a flavor unique to this type of product—corndog! It contains only 100-percent natural ingredients and is always tested to verify it is safe and effective for every pet. The dropper is clearly marked for easier dosing (start with 0.25 mL for every 10 pounds of your pet’s weight), and the flavor makes even the pickiest dogs take it with ease. If their reviews are any indication, it has helped many cats and dogs with anxiety, pain, stress, and even storm anxiety!
Cornbread Hemp grows all of their plants outdoors without irrigation on sustainable, organic Kentucky hemp farms. Farms located in Kentucky are generally fed limestone-filtered water, which makes their products full of calcium and magnesium.
The hemp is then extracted from the flower or “bud” only, using a CO2 process involving organic sugarcane ethanol. This results in a very high-quality, organic CBD extract that includes other cannabinoids that help create the entourage effect that both their distilled and whole plant oils are known for, like CBC, CBG, and THC (in trace amounts). Both oils are blended with MCT oil that has been certified organic by the USDA.
Every product from Cornbread Hemp has gone through strict third-party testing with Kaycha Labs, which is the only laboratory in the state of Kentucky to be registered with the DEA.
Each is tested for its potency and terpene content, as well as making sure that there are no traces of pesticides, heavy metals, foreign materials, residual solvents, microbials, or mycotoxins.
The resulting Certificate of Analysis (COA) is posted on Cornbread Hemp’s website.
