Last month, Ben & Jerry's encouraged its consumers to use marijuana, which is still illegal in 17 states. Now the ice cream maker says it "can't wait" to create CBD-infused ice cream, once it's legal.

On Thursday, the Vermont-based frozen dessert firm said on its website that it's "committed to bringing CBD-infused ice cream to your freezer as soon as it’s legalized at the federal level.”

CBD, a non-intoxicating form of cannabis that may have some health benefits, has been added to teas, gummies and beauty products in recent months. However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) prohibits adding CBD to food and beverages.

The health agency has a public hearing planned for Friday, where it will address the legalization of CBD-infused edibles, which Ben & Jerry's publicly advocates.
