Manufactured by Cornbread Hemp

Cannabidiol (CBD) brand Cornbread Hemp is launching a flower-only line of full-spectrum CBD products, according to a video released by the company with the announcement. In the video, co-founder Jim Higdon said that the practice of extracting CBD from whole plants rather than just the flowers is similar to making orange juice from the entire tree, rather than just the fruit. The company’s products are certified by the United States Department of Agriculture, and the new flower-only approach will result in a purer product, according to the video.
