An Introduction to Benjamin Bey and Soul D’licious
Benjamin Bey established what would become Soul D’licious Seasonings in 2006. It all came together when Ben came from Los Angeles and started a Catering Business in Las Vegas NV.
After doing events in the greater Vegas Valley (such as The Taste of Sound & Soul, Culture Fest in Down Town Las Vegas, and Black History Month at the Springs Preserves), people started asking what it was that made our tasty dishes so delicious. Ben got together with his team and blended his seasonings and went to see Mr. Jimmy Banks at Jimmy’s Cheyenne Market to ask if we could demo our seasonings in his store. Mr Banks said yes.
After one year of people tasting our seasonings, Ben went back to Mr. Banks to see if we could start manufacturing and processing at Jimmy’s Cheyenne Market. Again, he said YES! After getting all of his permits, the rest was history.
For the last 10 years, Soul D’licious Seasonings has been serving Las Vegas, NV & Los Angeles, CA our seasonings & sauces.
IT’S THE TASTE THAT WILL HAVE YOUR SOUL BEGGIN FOR MORE….. SOUL D’LICIOUS.

COO & Controller at THC Production, LLC
What Everyone Thinks She Does: Is in the process of giving herself carpal tunnel from constantly being on the computer.
What She Actually Does: Runs the company day-to-day, plans production, develops partnerships, supervises the team, and formulates business strategy. Manages all of the company’s finances, bookkeeping, and costing.
Favorite Product: “The Vegan 1:1 Chocolate Bars are my favorite… no question. Our vegan chocolate is so delicious that all the non-vegans who try it love it. Taste is incredibly important to us, so we were the first production company in the state to infuse our products with distillate. This means when it’s infused it doesn’t taste like weed. I love our 1:1 products because they have equal amounts of CBD and THC along with other cannabinoids – providing more of an entourage effect that you cannot get from consuming THC alone.”
