There is CBD beer and CBD coffee as well as CBD chewing gum and soda, skincare, oils and drops. And now the cannabis-derived product appears in Jelly Beans designed by the man who made Jelly Belly candies.
The product, a mix of an "adult" chemical compound – CBD – and a famous staple of American childhood was so popular that the company that created it, Spectrum Confections, led by Jelly Belly's inventor David Klein, after a wave was sold out of press reports in the last week.
"Jelly Belly Creator debuts cannabis-infused jelly beans: toasted marshmallow, mango, and more," wrote USA Today.
"The creator of Jelly Belly launches CBD-infused beans," CBS said. [Citation needed] 19659008] CBD is a cannabinoid compound, but it is not the chemical in cannabis that causes a high.A short for cannabidiol, it affects other parts of your nervous system called THC, the chemical that has been associated with a marijuana high According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
In short, CBD: no high THC: potential for high potential.
The product has gained popularity in recent years and has been used as a potential remedy for anxiety Seizures, sleep disorders, and even cancer, but medical benefits are still at the beginning of research, a study published in May last year found that CBD significantly reduced seizures in people who have a rare syndrome called Lennox-Gastaut. Another company found out in 2017 that children with Dravet syndrome, another severe form of epilepsy, dropped the number of seizures from 12.4 to 5.9 over the course of a month.
The Food and Drug Administration responded in June with the approval of a purified drug form of the drug to treat these conditions.
"However, it is important to note that this is not an approval of marijuana or any of its ingredients," the FDA noted. "This is the approval of a particular CBD drug for a particular use."
Dr. Igor Grant, chairman of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of California at San Diego and the director of the Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research, said in an interview that other medical uses and benefits of the product are not so firmly anchored.  "And it follows from [those studies] that it may be possible that CBD is useful in other epilepsies, although this is not established," he said.
He said that some studies have also shown that CBD has some anxiety features, and it is found that people giving a public speech were less anxious after taking it. He warned, however, that the amount of CBD used in these studies dwarfed the amount likely to be found in a candy.
Klein, who did not respond to requests for comments directed to his company, said Cannabis Aficionado, who first reported the story he had recently learned of the popularity and advantages of CBD.
"And I said to myself:" Does anyone make a jelly bean with CBD? ", He told the publication. "I could not find one." 19659018] Klein founded Jelly Belly in 1976 with an investment of $ 800 and no credit cards (Cannabis Aficionado Notes), but sold his rights four years later – and recently described the decision as a "mistake." He directed Candyman Kitchens in 2016. According to the Chicago Tribune, Klein sold various sweets and gimmicks, such as candy blood, and Klein started with a Kickstarter to market caffeinated jelly beans in coffee flavors such as caffe macchiato.
The most recent federal bill er mp and some of its products, such as CBD, if it is made and obtained from a plant that adheres to a strict list of restrictions, especially the absence of a large amount of THC. However, CBD is generally classified as a Schedule I substance. And his status as an FDA-approved drug complicates things at the federal level, Grant said.
But CBD is legal in all but four states, according to CBS. In this legal gray zone, the product flourished, with some estimates estimated the CBD market last year at $ 190 million.
Spectrum Confections sells the CBD jelly beans in 38 flavors including roasted marshmallow, piña colada and strawberry cheesecake. It also sells acidic and sugar-free versions. The company's website admits that CBD does not always have the "best taste".
Each jelly bean contains about 10 mg of CBD.
"When people want a small dose, they eat one," Klein Cannabis Afficionado said. "If you want 20 mg, you can eat two. You can decide what your correct dosage is.
The marijuana website noted that Jelly Bellys was one of President Ronald Reagan's favorite sweets, helping to continue the "war on drugs" launched by President Richard Nixon and founding the office in 1988 for national drug control policy.
Klein told the site that he does not want to make unfounded health claims about his new product, but he is sure that it will "help the world"] Read More:
