Ben and Jerry's has plans for CBD ice cream, pending federal approval

By  | 

(NBC) - Another new food trend may be coming to Ben and Jerry's: CBD ice cream.

The ice cream chain says it's committed to bringing CBD-infused ice cream to people if it becomes legalized at the federal level. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration prohibits adding CBD to food and beverages.

Ben and Jerry's says it can't wait to add the CBD compound to some of its pints soon.

On Friday, the FDA held its first public hearing on the booming industry to collect information. No decisions are expected for quite some time.
