Made in Kentucky
When it comes to producing the highest quality CBD oil, we source our hemp only from our home state of Kentucky.
Why? Kentucky sits on a massive limestone rock bed that provides some of the most nutritious soil and water known to man. It’s the same reason that our state is famous for the finest bourbon and the fastest racehorses on Earth.
But there is one other major reason that cannabis grows so well in Kentucky. We’re perfectly positioned on the 37th parallel, the same latitude line that runs through the Hindu Kush mountains (seriously).
Worlds Finest Water
It’s the same reason Kentucky produces the best bourbon. The primary geological feature of central Kentucky is the Bluegrass basin, which is actually the bed of a prehistoric ocean. All the living material in that ocean fell to the ocean floor and became the limestone bedrock of the Bluegrass.
This limestone bedrock filters iron from the groundwater, and leaves it heavy with calcium and magnesium. That gives Kentucky water a “sweet” taste and doesn’t discolor our whiskey like iron-heavy water does. It also helps us provide the finest CBD oils and topicals available.
"Kentucky is to hemp what the Napa Valley is to wine"
– Jim Higdon, co-founder
The 37th Parallel
The Hindu Kush is a mountain range between Pakistan and Afghanistan and is the region where all indica strains of cannabis originated. That means that the light cycles in Kentucky are the same as in the Hindu Kush. But the Hindu Kush is a rugged, rocky mountainous region, and Kentucky is blessed with one of the greatest agricultural microclimates on Earth that is sustained by multi-generational family farms.
It’s no wonder that hemp loves Kentucky as much as it does.
Nutritious Bluegrass Soil
We raise the fastest horses on Earth, and the finest full spectrum hemp, but how does hemp relate to Kentucky race horses? Just like bourbon, the reason that Kentucky produces the fastest horses on Earth is partly due to the limestone-filtered water. The calcium deposits in the limestone-filtered water make their way into the grass that these horses graze upon in the horse farms of the Bluegrass region.
This calcium from the water makes the horses’ bones stronger, according to one theory, which gives them an edge over other horses from other parts of the world. It also makes our full spectrum hemp grow pretty damn good, too.
We’ve learned a thing or two over these last 250 years. Kentucky farmers have been growing hemp since at least in 1775. Since then, our state has led the way in producing America’s finest outdoor hemp, even when it wasn’t legal. Thankfully, the Farm Bill of 2018 changed the hemp industry forever, making hemp below 0.3% legal in Kentucky (and all other states and territories).
Today, Cornbread Hemp™ proudly provides the first ever USDA certified organic CBD oils from Kentucky-grown hemp, and our commitment to producing Kentucky’s finest full spectrum CBD oils, capsules, and creams has never been greater.
“By 1943, Kentucky farmers were growing 52,000 acres of hemp — among the most of any state. After the war, Kentucky production remained steady, but halted in 1970 when President Nixon launched the so-called war on drugs by signing the Controlled Substances Act, making hemp illegal.”
