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.
Readers should note that the regulations and data surrounding CBD are still developing. As such, the information contained in this post should not be construed as medical or legal advice. Always consult with your doctor before trying any substance or supplement.

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.
