My high school dream was to be a White House correspondent, then college happened and I got involved with the radio station at Western Carolina University.

STATESVILLE, NC – What do you get when you pair legendary comedy duo Cheech and Chong with Statesville's Bebida Beverage Company (BeBevCo)? A new brand of hemp-infused ice-cream called “Cheech and Chong’s Nice Dreams Relaxation Ice Cream.”

"It's just like making cake at home," said BeBevCo CEO Brian Weber. "It's mixed in the batch. The hemp is powder form and the other natural supplements are just added in when they make the product."

Weber's focus is making a product that helps people "take the edge off." That is the main idea behind the new ice-cream.

"We took what we know about people consuming products to relax and combined them with a really great flavor ice-cream made here in North Carolina," he said.

He says the antioxidants found in the hemp and supplements added to the ice-cream help consumers reach a "euphoric feeling of relaxation." That same idea has been driving his company's other product, KOMA Unwind, for years.

“KOMA Unwind is actually the number one relaxation beverage on the market," said Alisha Craig, VP of Sales with Bebida Beverage Company. "It is a natural dietary supplement with a lightly carbonated soda. Will definitely take that edge off anytime during the day and will give you that relief of stress and also gives you a better quality of sleep.”

"Cheech and Chong's Nice Dreams Relaxation Ice-Cream" is expected to begin production this summer.
