• The Washington Post reports on how Jelly Belly inventor David Klein is out with a new jelly bean infused with cannabis-derived CBD.

The product, once announced, proved to be so popular that it is already sold out.

The Post notes that “CBD is a cannabinoid compound, but it’s not the chemical in cannabis that causes a high. Short for cannabidiol, it acts on different parts of your nervous system than does THC, which is the chemical associated with a marijuana high, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
