The creator of Jelly Belly is diving into a new brand of the iconic candy.

According to Business Insider, Jelly Belly inventor David Klein is launching Spectrum Confections, which will sell CBD-infused jelly beans.

Business Insider reports that the candies will come in 38 flavors, including piña colada, strawberry cheesecake and roasted marshmallow. Each bean will reportedly contain 10 milligrams of CBD.

Jelly Belly itself, which was created by Klein in the 70s, isn’t involved in the new creation.

CBD is the non-psychoactive component of marijuana used for treating pain and inflammation, according to Medical News Today.
