Cannabidiol (CBD) is available in a wide variety of ingestible products in 2019, though some of the more popular forms are confections such as gummies, chocolates, and hard candies.
But jelly beans could be the next big CBD edible as a sugar-seasoned veteran is getting into the business.
The man behind the first jelly beans to go into space, David Klein, has combined his extensive confection-making experience with his love of CBD, launching a new candy line that has become an instant hit.
Klein, who created the Jelly Belly gourmet jelly beans in 1976, recently began producing CBD-infused candy through his Spectrum Confections company.
But due to the high popularity of Klein’s candies, the manufacturer has sold out of all three jelly bean varieties that it produces. Customers wishing to place orders are encouraged to use the online contact form so Spectrum can assist them personally as they try to meet the current demand.
Klein attests to the quality of Spectrum products, keeping in-step with his candy-making prowess that helped him invent one of the most recognizable jelly beans in the world in the ’70s.
“Our 1mg Spectrum® Gourmet Jelly Bean recipe has been tested by Botanica in Gainesville, Florida,” wrote Klein in an Instagram post in February. “They told us our patent pending process is creating consistency which is great news.”
Spectrum’s regular and sour jelly beans come in packs with 38 assorted flavors, and the sugar-free varieties come in seven flavors. There are 10 milligrams of CBD in each jelly bean, which Klein says is perfect for dosing properly.
