The Creator Of Jelly Belly Released A Line Of CBD-Infused Jelly Beans
Giving “Happy Easter” a new meaning.
Regular jelly beans are a fun, fruity treat, but how about CBD-infused ones? David Klein, the genius behind Jelly Belly jelly beans, has given the chewy candy a 2019 makeover with Spectrum Confections—a line of jelly beans infused with cannabidol (CBD). Now these are some jelly beans I’d want to find in an Easter egg!
Klein sold his rights to Jelly Belly in 1980, according to Cannabis Aficionado, but candy has still been on his mind. After recently realizing the benefits of CBD, he asked himself “is anybody doing a jelly bean with CBD?” he told the outlet. He couldn’t find any, and he saw an opportunity to create candy again that could help people.
Spectrum Confections, Klein’s company, produces CBD-infused jelly beans in 38 different flavors. He says that strawberry cheesecake is one of his favorites and other flavors include toasted marshmallow, piña colada, cinnamon, spicy licorice, and mango. According to the website, each jelly bean has 10 mg of CBD and is sanded with dextrose to mask the CBD flavor.
The beans come in sugar-free and sour varieties, too. Klein is definitely onto something here, because the CBD jelly beans are currently out of stock. The website says to use the contact form or email the company for information on where to buy the Spectrum Jelly Beans.
In a reply to a comment on Facebook, Spectrum Confections wrote, “we are the manufacturer and only sell bulk units to distributors. We are seeing our vendors sell for approximately $2.00 per jelly bean with 10mg.” So, keep your eyes peeled for the CBD jelly beans!
We reached out to the company for more information regarding availability and when the jelly beans may be back in stock online. We will update as we hear back.
David Klein, who invented Jelly Belly jelly beans in 1976, recently created CBD jelly beans. The jelly beans have 10 mg of CBD a piece.
