Sweet consultant develops CBD oil confectionery range
British confectionery expert Andy Baxendale has been approached to develop a series of sweets containing cannabis-derivative CBD oil for national supplier The CBD Works.
The artisan, hand-made hard-boiled sweets have been launched to trade buyers this week and are also available for consumers to buy direct, and is sourced strictly from legal strains of hemp plants.
Vegan Vicky’s CBD Winter Nips are infused with CBD oil, which is reputed to have anti-inflammatory, pain-reducing, and calming effects - but does not contain Tetra Hydro Cannabinol (THC), which is the active element of marijuana. Each pack of 40g contains 25mg of CBD, which is around the recommended daily allowance.
Baxendale, who is widely known as ‘the Sweet Consultant’ and is an editorial board member of Confectionery Production, said: “CBD oil is legal in the UK provided it has been derived from an industrial hemp strain that is EU-approved and follows FSA guidelines.”
“With CBD’s growing market, it was only a matter of time before people saw the benefits of infusing it into a lozenge-type sweet to make it easy to ingest.”
The CBD Works strives to offer you the consumer the best, safest and quality assured CBD Oil products from all over the world and sells a range of products, including CBD oil with MCT (coconut oil), turmeric and other superfoods / botanicals.
As a former product development manager for Chewits, Baxendale (who features in our June edition of Confectionery Production), is a respected national consultant in every aspect of confectionery production. He has extensive knowledge of regulation and legislation in the industry, advising companies on everything from recipes to staff training and enhanced production techniques. He is currently continuing his plans to set up a National Academy of sweets to teach a new generation the art of confectionery production and development.
