A product that started as a relaxing solution for a hardworking mother has now become a new fruity treat for cannabis users to enjoy as a fun snack after a long day.
Shaina Kerrigan founded Molly Jones — a gourmet CBD gumdrop brand — in May 2019. “I originally turned to CBD to help with sleep, but as a mom of two young kids, I quickly realized how much of a game-changer it was for stress management and finding balance in a chaotic toddler-filled day,” she explains.
“As I shopped around, I wanted to find a product with a high CBD dosage because I knew we need a lot to make a difference,” Kerrigan adds. “I also wanted something that felt like a special treat at the end of a long day to replace my not-so-healthy nightly ritual of wine.”
But, she says, “I couldn’t find a product that blends high-quality with high luxury, so I set out to make my own.”
Kerrigan and the women-led team at Molly Jones specialize in handmade, naturally fruit-flavored CBD-infused gummies that come in 25mg or 50mg doses, and are available for nationwide shipping.
“With Molly Jones, we’re all about doing one thing and doing it well — CBD confections,” Kerrigan explains. “We’re the Sugarfina of CBD, offering a range of high-quality, handmade CBD gumdrops in various flavors, dosages levels, and formulas for a delicious treat to help take the edge off after a long day.”
This summer, the company formed a partnership with Vertosa — an infused technology company — which will help expand sales and brand recognition of the new, naturally flavored gummies.
I personally received a package of Molly Jones’ High Dose Mini Variety Flavor with three gummies, each infused with 50mg of CBD. The first thing that caught my attention was the warm pink case the three gummies were packaged in, which immediately made me feel like a kid waiting for my pack of fruit snacks with a big smile on my face.
The three-pack of gummies lasted me for three separate nights. I used them to help me fall asleep, and as a solution for my insomnia and horrible sleep schedule.
The sweet treat helped me fall asleep easily. I was able to clear my mind and focus on getting a healthy amount of sleep to get through the rest of the workweek.
Each of the three gummies had a natural fruit flavor and a slight hint of cannabis. It took 20 minutes for the gummies to take effect, which I found worked well when taken before my pre-bedtime shower to fully feel the CBD’s positive effect when I lay down.
Molly Jones High Dose Mini made great wellness treat for me, and will make a great party favor or gift for a friend or family member who you know needs some help relaxing after a long workday.
