CBD oil-infused candy launched by the Jelly Beans candy founder are sold out everywhere. David Klein sells the cannabis jelly bean candy with about 10 milligrams of CBD oil inside each bean.

Klein founded Jelly Belly jelly beans in Belleville, Ill in 1976. His new company, Spectrum Confections, offers "gourmet" jelly beans, sugar-free jelly beans, and sour jelly beans infused with CBD oil.

According to CBS2 Chicago the entire stock of CBD-infused jelly beans is sold out online.

Cannabidiol oil (CBD) is all the rage in America. The non-intoxicating marijuana extract is credited with treating a variety of ailments including epileptic seizures in children, anxiety, inflammation and insomnia.

But experts say CBD oil has potential health risks as well.

CBD is being produced without any federal regulation at all, says Marcel Bonn-Miller, an adjunct assistant professor of psychology at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.

"It really is the Wild West," said Bonn-Miller. "Joe Bob who starts up a CBD company would say whatever the hell he wants on a label and sell it to people."

Cannabidiol oil is extracted from the flowers and buds of marijuana or hemp plants. It does not cause an intoxicating effect, or marijuana's "high" which is caused by tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

According to WebMD CBD oil is legal in 30 states where medicinal marijuana is sold legally. The drug is baked into cookies, muffins, cupcakes, and other edibles, and sold in pot dispensaries legally.

Seventeen states, including Alabama and Georgia, have CBD-specific laws on the books, according to Prevention magazine.

Last month, a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisory panel unanimously recommended approval of the CBD medication Epidiolex to treat two rare forms of childhood epilepsy, according to WebMD.

There is not enough research to confirm whether CBD is beneficial or useful to treat epilepsy in adults.

CBD's usefulness as an anti-inflammatory medication is being studied using animals, experts said.

CBD's other uses - as an antipsychotic, antidepressant or sleep aid "have all been studied in animals, with only one or two examples of studies in humans," Bonn-Miller said.

He added that states struggle to regulate CBD products because they don't have the deep pockets of the federal government.

Due to the lack of regulation, Bonn-Miller said consumers can't be sure of what they are getting when they purchase CBD products.

Nearly 43% of the products contain too little CBD oil, while about 26 percent contained too much, Bonn-Miller said.

"CBD is kind of a tricky drug because it's not very well absorbed orally, said Timothy Welty, chair of the department of clinical sciences at Drake University in Iowa.

"Less than 20 percent of the drug is absorbed orally. If it isn't made in the right way, you may not be getting much drug into your systemic circulation."

Even worse, Bonn-Miller said, about 1 in 5 CBD products contained the intoxicating pot chemical TYHC.

"If I were a consumer, purchasing it for myself or my kid, I would want to test it so that I knew what it actually had in it, because I couldn't trust what was on the label," Bonn-Miller concluded.

Studies show that CBD oil is harmful to the liver. About 10 percent of people taking CBD in research studies had increases in liver enzymes, which indicates possible liver damage, Welty said.

"About 2 to 3 percent of individuals taking CBD actually had to discontinue because their liver enzymes went so high it was of concern to the people running the study," he said.

Welty said people should consult with a doctor who understands the side effects of the CBD extract and its potential uses.

He said, don't "just go out and buy CBD thinking it's going to be the answer."

  • WhoKnew

    Wow. "Sandra Eartha Mae Marrrrrrcus Rose" thank you for this medical minute. It is extremely informative.

    My son researched it a month ago and asked me to do the same on behalf of a couple of relatives who have dementia. I just got around to doing some research on it this past weekend. Now, we're undecided on whether to talk with our relatives about the pros and cons of using CBD.

  • WhoKnew

    Yea you! Congrats!

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I buy it at a little shop in Tampa, FL.

  • Anji

    Just an FYI. Music therapy works wonders for dementia. Focus on familiarity and alternate instrumentals with vocal. Play at low levels during sleep also. I've witnessed miracles. Blessings

  • WhoKnew

    Really? Never heard that before. Thank you @Anji. I see these two relatives often and will definitely try to implement that.

    I think so. I live in Colorado and my doctor (primary physician not from a dispensary) prescribed me THC pills.

    "Studies show that CBD oil is harmful to the liver."

    What study showed Alcohol should be legal?

    Yes, inhaling and eating edible products.

    I was stuck in a nursing home and in an Alzheimer's/dementia area. I stayed busy and although I had to sue them I visit to keep certain elders speaking after being mute for years. I used such therapy raising a son with autism and on myself after sustaining a brain injury that robbed me of speech, partial visuals and hearing. I used it on my mother to bring her out of a 2 month coma years ago. I would record her church choir for her listening. It gave us time to communicate before her transition. I could only speak German....and I learned English from this very blog! (much to my fam's chagrin). Music and drum rhythms heal.

  • jwoo250

    So that this mean everyone sitting in a jail cell on drug charges should be released since they selling it legally now and getting ready to make a killing off of something they told us not to do?

    I guess cocaine will be legal next and the list goes on. Why make drugs illegal at all when the pharmaceutical companies already killing folks? ijs

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    You smoke? Because I don't. I don't need you getting high off the supply. I wouldn't terch "government store brought" weed anyway. Anthing THEY put their hands on is fukked up one way or another.

    Yea look how they ran with the lottery...?Which was once very illegal to gamble numbers until they notice how much money hustling street numbers was profiting????! I tell folks the government are the biggest scammers hustlers gang bangers etc! They dont want YOU doing their job. All these crazy prescription drugs are no better to me then heroine and cocaine: they are all chemicals mixed in a lab. Accept marijuana. Cocaine is also made from a plant but what it takes to make it into a drug or a soda or chocolate is mixed up in a lab or ya nearest trap house.

  • Yoni7

    How old are you, might I ask? Reason being, you look young and I hear a lot of young people being stricken with arthritis. I always once thought it was a disease of the elderly.

  • Yoni7

    I've always said folks are dumb asf for wanting weed legal. Why? Because they are going to upcharge that shit and start adding shit to this natural plant to make it more or less potent. You see what the FDA had done to the natural tobacco leaf.....what we now refer to as a "cancer stick", BKA a cigarette or 'port (for the black folks that smoke). LOL These YT folks are about to dominate this "legal" weed industry and make it hard for those of US who want in. Watch. The ONLY PRO I want for the legalization of weed is...... that the charges for all of our brotHEIRS and siSTARS that are doing time for a WEED charge be dropped, sealed, expunged and released. #givethemfree

  • Yoni7

    Hell, you "write" better than me. LOL

  • WinterIsComing

    A few separate incidents up here involved kids taking their parents’ edibles from home and sharing them in school. Some of the Kids ended up in hospital. One little boy knew whst he was doing though-he’d pass the edibles out, not eat any himself and watch the kids flip out.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Interesting, to say the least.
    If they make marijuana legal, then every black main in prison on marijuana charges should be released immediately.

  • WinterIsComing

    It depends how it’s legalized. States should allow private parties to grow weed for their own personal consumption instead of just handing out permits to a select few companies.

  • Yoni7

    he’d pass the edibles out, not eat any himself and watch the kids flip out.

    YT folks act like they discovering something new. My Cherokee Nannie had my mom both chewing a tobacco leaf and smoking that looong pipe for a variety of ailments and she was born in the 1800s.

    Man, I had to let them CBD gummy worms go that I was getting from the BP gas station because those thangs were good but they were 20.00 for 6 or 10.00 for 2 worms.
    I would get the 6 but they were TOO EASY to eat and I think one week I must have bought like 2 packs a day out 4 out of the 7 days. So I went on the internet and tried to get some for cheaper than what I was paying at the BP, I was shocked to see that the BP ones were a better deal than what I was seeing on the internet because the ones at the BP gas station were 50 milligrams per gummy worm which is a LOT!
    I tried the CBD oil itself and didn't like it. I had the drops. They were nasty and I couldn't tell a difference in anything. The worms though, oh man, they did have a relaxing effect, I can't really explain it. It's just like it makes you feel light and I think it slowed down my self-diagnosed ADD brain, but alas I decided that since I wasn't taking them for any specific reason and since I already got enough expensive vices (LOL), that I would have to cut them loose, but I highly recommend. These are the ones they sell at the BP gas station if anyone is interested. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4348aaa9f7ad2837144a650651953d1b52af52e33fcb8e736c52494a6a97e018.jpg
