LAKEWOOD RANCH, Fla. -- A company out of Manatee County is taking its ice cream to the next level, by infusing cannabis into its flavors. The company is called Heavenly Hash Creamery in Lakewood Ranch.

- Ice cream contains CBD isolate, not THC
"Its pure CBD isolate,” said co-owner Matt Eastman. "This is all of the good things that come from the cannabinoid plant without the hallucinogenic effect."
That’s because the ice cream doesn’t contain THC. But Eastman said the list of ailments it can help is endless.
"Pain, nausea, inflammation,” he said.
Which is why Eastman, owner of Lickety Splits Ice Cream, partnered with oncology nurse Susan Scherer to form the company. Together, they rolled out 6 flavors of the CBD ice cream back in July.
"Working with hundreds of cancer patients, the biggest thing they are asking for is what kind of nutrition is out there to help rebuild my body or get me through my cancer treatments,” Scherer said.
The company is already working on expansion plans for a new 20,000 square foot plant in the area.
In the meantime, you can place orders online or purchase the ice cream from several locations in the Bay Area. For that information, visit heavenlyhashcreamery.com.
