The mastermind behind one of the worlds best known jelly bean brands, Jelly Belly, has made a move into the world of CBD edibles.
David Klein was the founder Jelly Belly in the 1970s, with the name becoming known the world over for its tasty flavours.
After selling the rights to the name in the 80s, David has gone on to set up Spectrum Confections to make CBD jelly beans, targeting what he believes is a gap in the market for edibles.
Speaking to Cannabis Aficionado, Klein said he is a regular user of CBD, and while he saw countless companies offering CBD gummies, he found himself thinking “is anybody doing a jelly bean with CBD?”
Inspired, Klein went on to found Spectrum Confections, which will produce CBD Jelly Beans in 38 different flavours.
Each bean reportedly contains 10mg of CBD, which Klein says makes it easy for customers to administer the right dose, and come in both sugar free and standard variations.
Currently the products are only available to wholesalers in the US, however CBD intel reports that Klein is keen to bring his CBD jelly beans to the UK. “I’ve got a friend in the UK who is the biggest jelly bean fan, so we want to do it in the UK,”
Let’s hope we get to sample them here in the UK soon!
