You Can Now Buy CBD Jelly Beans, But They’re In Awfully High Demand
Snacking just got a lot more interesting thanks to a new offering from the creator of Jelly Belly jelly beans. Now you can satisfy your sweet tooth and calm your nerves all at the same time. You can now buy CBD jelly beans вЂ” and the demand is super high.
David Klein, who first created Jelly Belly jelly beans, known for their inventive and creative flavors, sold the brand back in 1976, but that hasn’t stopped him from inventing new and improved versions of these candies, according to Forbes. Now, under his new company, Spectrum Confections, Klein is selling CBD-infused jelly beans faster than he can make them. As of right now, inventory is totally sold out online вЂ” and people cannot wait for them to restock.
Romper reached out to the company for comment, but did not immediately receive a response.
Make no mistake, these jelly beans aren’t for the kids. It’s an adults-only kind of treat. Each jelly bean contains 10 ml of CBD so the consumer can decide their own preferred dosage, as Cannabis Aficionado reported.
There’s no one size fits all dosage for CBD and the FDA has not created a recommended daily allowance for the oil, according to CBD+ Origin.
The best thing to do is start small and work your way up to the desired effects you are looking to obtain.
Right now, CBD is legal in all but four states, according to CBS News.
Currently there are 38 flavors of CBD-infused jelly beans including sugar free and sour varieties as well as mango, marshmallow, strawberry cheesecake and more, according to Cannabis Aficionado.
CBD oil has a strong flavor that is not always pleasant, so each jelly bean is also coated in a sweetener to ensure a better taste experience, according to the website.
The candies do not contain THC, the element in marijuana that delivers the high.
CBD is one of a number of naturally-occurring chemicals derived from the Cannabis sativa plant, or marijuana plant, according to Healthline. THC is another, and it’s the one responsible for the high feeling one gets from ingesting marijuana. CBD has no cognitive affects, but may be able to relieve unwanted discomfort from common ailments.
CBD is believed to help with everything from anxiety and depression to acne reduction and heart health, according Healthline. It’s not so much about what you’ll feel, but what you won’t feel. CBD can also be a sort of all-around pain reliever, according to PopSugar.
You can pretty much get CBD in anything nowadays, according to Popular Mechanics вЂ” chocolate covered almonds, beer, coffee, bath bombs, and even hair pomade. But, jelly beans never seemed to make the list of options. So, you can see that the popularity of these jelly beans are no surprise.
If you’re interested in trying these jelly beans, you’ll want to join the waiting list for a chance to snag a package. Follow the instructions on the Spectrum Confection’s homepage to request the product and they’ll notify you when it’s back in stock. Until then, you’ll have to stave off your jelly bean cravings with the regular kind.

You Can Buy CBD-Infused Jelly Beans Made By The Creator Of Jelly Belly
Jelly beans just got a whole lot more grownup. Unless you grew up without a heart or a sweet tooth, there’s a good chance that salivating over the huge range of Jelly Belly jelly bean flavors was a huge part of your childhood. Whether you were just dreaming about flavor mixes (two popcorns and a cherry, please) or were a real connoisseur, they’re about as American as apple pie. But now the creator of Jelly Belly’s jelly beans has launched CBD-infused jelly beans and the world is ready for it.
Per Cannabis Aficionado, David Klein created Jelly Belly’s jelly beans in 1976 before selling the now iconic company in 1980, but this candy lover’s obsession with sweet didn’t end there. Now his company Spectrum Confections is creating jelly beans with a twist вЂ” offering CBD-infused beans.
“We test each recipe with our lab to ensure that the correct amount of CBD is added to each piece,” its website explains. “We are a USA company who prides ourselves in having products that can be trusted as well as have the best flavor profile on the market. We know and love candy!”
Its website offers a classic jelly bean offered in 38 assorted flavors, a sugar-free option in seven assorted flavors, and a sour jelly bean variety mix also available in 38 flavors. Each contains 10 mg of CBD per bean, and the beans have been “sanded” with dextrose (or Malitol, for the sugar-free beans), to help mask the CBD flavor. Oh, and if case you were wondering вЂ” toasted marshmallow will be making any appearance. Klein told Cannabis Aficionado that flavors would include toasted marshmallow, pina colada, strawberry cheesecake, cinnamon, spicy licorice, mango, and more.
Why CBD jelly beans? While there is a lot of hype at the moment of the calming, anti-anxiety, and inflammatory properties of CBD, it’s important to put these into context. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound found in the cannabis plant and, because CBD long been considered a schedule 1 drug, in reality there is very limited research into its actual benefits and efficacy вЂ” in fact, it’s only been approved by the FDA for treatment with a specific form of epilepsy. Its legality is also a grey area, as different states have had their own evolving laws about marijuana and marijuana derivatives. While the 2018 Farm Bill which has now come into force technically means that hemp and hemp-derived products are no longer covered under the Controlled Substances Act country-wide, this is only the case if the CBD is completely pure, free from any THC, and grown by licensed farmers. Plus, since the bill took force, the FDA has reiterated its authority to regulate CBD compounds, no matter the source and has warned again unsubstantiated claims about health benefits. In fact, in some areas companies selling CBD-infused drinks are being sued. The moral of the story? Do your research to know the legality where you are and, when you read about the health benefits, make sure to put it into context.
If CBD is for you, then jelly beans seem like a pretty delicious way to get your dosage. Although the huge media storm that has formed around these beans means that they’re currently sold out on the website, the site suggests you contact the company directly for orders. It seems to be offering wholesale orders, so it will be interesting to see if these beans make their way to a store near you. Fingers crossed buttered popcorn flavor will make the cut (don’t @ me).
