Due to confusion in the marketplace, Jelly Belly Candy Company would like to take this opportunity to clear up the misconception that it is involved with CBD jelly beans. David Klein, the creator of the CBD jelly bean product gaining attention within the media this week, is not associated with Jelly Belly Candy Company, its brands, or products. In 1976, Mr. Klein, an independent third party, came up with the name “Jelly Belly” and other novel marketing ideas. Jelly Belly Candy Company has not had a relationship with him since 1980 when it acquired the trademark.
While Jelly Belly does not publicly discuss research and development projects, it can state that it is not pursuing the development of any CBD products at this time, as such products would currently be illegal for Jelly Belly according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
CBD continues to be a topic of interest in the confectionery industry, however because Jelly Belly sells online and through a national network of retailers, according to the FDA, it is “unlawful” and requires more pathways to legalization. Here is FDA’s current statement on the issue: “… it’s unlawful under the FD&C Act to introduce food containing added CBD or THC into interstate commerce, or to market CBD or THC products as, or in, dietary supplements, regardless of whether the substances are hemp-derived. This is because both CBD and THC are active ingredients in FDA-approved drugs and were the subject of substantial clinical investigations before they were marketed as foods or dietary supplements. Under the FD&C Act, it’s illegal to introduce drug ingredients like these into the food supply, or to market them as dietary supplements. This is a requirement that we apply across the board to food products that contain substances that are active ingredients in any drug.”
