Anxiety and CBD
10 Most Famous Celebrity CBD Users
With its multitude of health benefits, it comes as no surprise to see the popularity of CBD skyrocketing over recent months. Alongside its rise in use amongst the general population, CBD has also gained something of a status with celebrities and influencers across a multitude of industries.
Professional athletes speak of their use of CBD in relation to pain relief and muscle recovery while actors, musicians and other well-known names have endorsed CBD when relieving anxiety, promoting skincare and for use in general wellness.
Lady Gaga, Morgan Freeman, Jennifer Aniston, Kim Kardashian West, Gwyneth Paltrow and Michael J Fox are just a few of the names associated with CBD.What about the legalities?
I It’s important to remember that the laws on cannabis vary from country to country and that marijuana is legal in 15 of the US states, including California. We therefore find that some US-based celebrities will discuss their entirely legal use of cannabis. Meanwhile, cannabis remains illegal as a Class B controlled substance in the UK . However, the compound cannabidiol (CBD) is completely legal provided it contains no THC.
Which celebrities are reported to use CBD?
- Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga is well-known for her outspoken personality, happily discussing her private life and using it to support causes she cares about. One of the world’s biggest stars reportedly suffers from synovitis, a painful inflammation of the joints, that apparently stems from a hip injury she suffered during a concert. On Instagram she shared a photo of herself taking a CBD infused bath to help her relax and unwind.
2. Gwyneth Paltrow
Actress and wellness guru, Gwyneth Paltrow, launched Goop in 2008. Originally a weekly newsletter, it has expanded into a modern lifestyle brand with its own line of skin care, a fashion label and wellness shop. The Goop podcast sees informative chats and conversations with leading thinkers and culture changers. And now… Paltrow is backing Cann, a cannabis-infused beverage maker. Calling cannabis a ‘hero ingredient of the future’ for wellness, she believes the drinks, which are infused with small doses of THC and CBD, are an appealing alternative to alcohol. Looking back to Goop, we’re enjoying a few of her recipes including the CBD Gin & Tonic.
3. Kim Kardashian West
One of the most vocal supporters of CBD oil and other CBD products, Kim Kardashian West even threw a ‘CBD and Meditation’ themed baby shower for the birth of her son Psalm West.
