Ben & Jerry’s says a CBD-infused ice cream could hit the shelves if the FDA allows CBD to be added to food and beverages.
Before you get caught up on the idea of CBD-infused munchies, it’s probably worth knowing that the FDA currently prohibits adding cannabidiol to food and beverages. Our guys Ben & Jerry have always been a staple go-to when that appetite hits, having been recognized across the world for Ice Cream flavors that only a person on “Cloud9” could imagine. Now the iconic frozen treat chain hopes to deliver its fans with a flavor so yummy, you won’t know it ’till it hits you… literally.
CBD is sold legally in other forms, but unlike marijuana products, it does not cause people to get high. It comes from the cannabis plant hemp. Ben & Jerry’s wants to use sustainably-sourced CBD from its home state of Vermont.
“We are open to bringing CBD-infused ice cream to your freezer as soon as it’s legalized at the federal level,” the company said in a press release.

So, fingers crossed people! If this actually happens, the world of ice cream as we know it may just be on an entirely different level until the end of time.
