The 2021 CBD Awards | The CBD Insider

Welcome to our 2021 CBD Awards!

After dozens of brand and product reviews conducted this year, this is our chance to recognize those who truly outperformed the competition in the following categories:

  • Best CBD Oil
  • Best CBD Gummy
  • Best CBD Topical
  • Best CBD Capsules
  • Best THC-Free Product
  • Best CBG Product
  • Best CBN Product
  • Best Value
  • Best Pet CBD
  • Most Innovative
  • Best Newcomer
  • Best CBD Brand

As always, we promise to uphold real merit as the only currency here; no brand can buy their way onto this list with anything other than high-quality products and practices. 

Since the competition is thickening all the time as industry newbies swagger their way onto the scene while the titans wrestle for supremacy, we had to get a little technical in our ranking methodology to separate some razor-thin margins.

Our Ranking Criteria

In the case of individual brand reviews we conduct throughout the year, we use these criteria to provide each brand an overall score out of 100 points.

Understandably, the more specific superlatives we’re doling out today require modified versions of these criteria, but the heart is very much the same.

To provide a few examples of the factors we borrowed from our brand review criteria, the products listed below are being recognized for their balanced and potent cannabinoid profiles, sustainability and quality of sourcing (organic?), overall value, extract availability (full-spectrum and broad-spectrum?), and more.

Alright, the host has babbled enough, the stage is set, and the nominees are fidgeting in their seats—let’s get to the awards!

Organic MCT Coconut Oil, Organic Hemp Extract

Just when we thought we had the hemp industry giants settled perfectly into their rankings, in saunters relative newcomer Cornbread Hemp, unabashedly slamming their flower-only, full-spectrum, USDA Organic CBD oil on the table as if to say “deal with it” to the rest of the industry. 

After reviewing the brand, sampling the products, meeting the founder, and thoroughly poking through the fine print, we have verified that all of their lofty claims are actually true.

This is one of only two products we’ve ever reviewed to hit all of the “big three” quality indicators at once (flower only, organic, full-spectrum), and like many industry leaders pushing for stronger tinctures, this one provides 50mg/2mg of CBD/THC per serving.

Better yet, the Kentucky hemp farms that Cornbread Hemp partners with are rain-fed, and they sit on a massive limestone deposit that improves soil and water quality.
