US company Weller has launched a range of CBD-infused snacks, as it aims to offer the benefits of hemp CBD through convenient products.
Called CBD Coconut Bites, the line is available in three flavours: dark chocolate, caramel and original.
Delivering a lightly-sweet taste and crispy crunch, the range is sold in single-serving (5 bites) and multi-serving (20 bites) packaging. Each bite is infused with 5mg of CBD (cannabidiol) from full-spectrum hemp extract.
Weller said its source of Colorado-grown CBD, along with its clean extraction methods, proprietary infusion process, clean lineage and third-party testing, “ensure that each bite delivers the benefits of CBD consistently and reliably”.
Founded by food industry veterans Matt Oscamou, founder and CEO of Frontier Snacks, and John Simmons, founder and CEO of Third Street Chai, Weller seeks to change the way consumers can access the power of CBD through simple, functional foods. The firm is headquartered in Boulder, Colorado.
“Consumers are over-scheduled and stressed now more than ever,” said Oscamou. “Weller is all about enabling people to be the best version of themselves and snack into wellness by delivering the natural benefits of hemp CBD through convenient, trusted products that people love.”
Simmons added: “We are a passionate team of athletes, engineers, foodies and yogis who have spent 30+ collective years in the natural food industry. Wellness through diet and lifestyle is second nature for us all and hemp CBD has played a part in each of our wellness journeys in a deep way. With this, Weller was born and we cannot wait to share these effective and insanely delicious products with the world.”
