Jim Higdon is the co-founder of Cornbread Hemp. He is also an author, writer, and journalist. He had published a book about Cornbread Mafia which kickstarted his journalism career. As a journalist, he covered all about the cannabis policy. He was able to discover some things like the dishonesty of some brands about the products they are promoting.
