Legalization & Addiction

CBD-Infused Jelly Beans Are Here Thanks to David Klein

The creator of Jelly Belly is making CBD jelly beans.

David Klein, who started Jelly Belly in 1976, is creating a CBD-infused line of jelly beans under his new candy company, Spectrum Confections. Klein sold his rights to Jelly Belly to the Herman Goelitz Candy Co. in 1980 and has called the move a big mistake.

Spectrum Confections’ CBD jelly beans come in three varieties: Original, sugar-free, and sour, and 38 different flavors, including toasted marshmallow, strawberry cheesecake, cinnamon, spicy licorice, and mango.

“Our mango tastes more like mango than mango does,” Klein proclaimed.

Each individual jelly bean contains 10 mg of CBD, but won’t contain any THC, for now.

Klein said he thinks legalization is on the horizon.

“About two years from now, everybody is going to laugh at how long it took to get there,” he said.

The CBD-infused jelly beans are available on Spectrum Confections’ website.
