In what has to be the sweetest piece of CBD news this year, Ben and Jerry’s is going to get CBD ice cream onto store shelves as soon as it is legal to do so. Cue a collective chorus of happy screams. Or is that just what’s happening in my living room?
Ben and Jerry’s made the announcement in an Instagram post in late May and so far the post has 58,000 likes. OK, so the post says that “maybe, hopefully” they will soon have CBD ice cream, but that’s sort of where a lot of businesses are right now with their cannabidiol products. Remember, cannabidiol is an element in marijuana plants that does not make you high. It is not THC.
But still there are many businesses out there who right now operate in a nebulous gray area, which is an uncomfortable place to be. Be patient, businesses. Do things by the book. Prepare for the eventual legalization of CBD, and most of all, create great products.
At CBD Up Close we look forward to all of the amazing CBD products and business you create and build. And we most definitely look forward to Ben and Jerry’s CBD ice cream and any other companies that decide to create CBD food products.
