Ben & Jerry's is making plans to get into a new culinary trend: cannabidiol, or CBD treats.

The company said it wants to bring CBD-infused ice cream to freezers everywhere as soon as it’s legalized at the federal level.

“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.”

The FDA is holding a public hearing Friday on the legalization of CBD-infused foods and beverages.
