Many forms of CBD are legal nationwide, but currently the FDA prohibits its addition to any food or beverage.   

Ben & Jerry’s says it sees CBD  and cannabis infused foods as a hot trend in 2019.  

“We’re doing this for our fans,” said Ben & Jerry’s CEO Matthew McCarthy. “We’ve listened and brought them everything from Non-Dairy indulgences to on-the-go portions with our Pint Slices. We aspire to love our fans more than they love us and we want to give them what they’re looking for in a fun, Ben & Jerry’s way.”
