David Klein, the inventor of the Jelly Belly launched Spectrum Confections, manufacturing CBD-infused jelly beans, and the Jelly Belly Candy Company denies any association between the brands.

Klein, the creator of the cannabidiol-infused candy, is not associated with the Jelly Belly, its brands, or products, stated the Jelly Belly Candy Company in a press release.

The loaded beans are available in 38 flavours, some of them similar to those familiar with the family-friendly Jelly Belly line, such as Roasted Marshmallow and Strawberry Cheesecake. The Jelly Belly Candy Company published a press release stating that despite superficial similarities, they have nothing to do with any cannabis-based products, nor Klein himself.

In 1976, Klein created the name “Jelly Belly” and "other marketing ideas," according to the official Jelly Belly Candy Company website. The Jelly Belly Candy Company firmly stated that it 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 stated in a press release 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.”
