Over the last few years, the market for natural and holistic healthcare products has grown tremendously. CBD, or cannabidiol, is one item that has remained in the spotlight for its supposed health benefits and minimal side effects.
Thanks to the non-psychoactive properties of CBD, its usefulness is favourable over certain over-the-counter medications and prescription pharmaceuticals. As with any health trend, red carpet celebrities around the world have begun to invest in, support, and endorse a wide range of CBD products.
1. Nate Diaz
Nate Diaz, an American MMA fighter with the United Fighting Championship, is a proponent of CBD products. Diaz has been using CBD products openly since 2016 and claims it helps with healing and inflammation.
Nate and his brother Nick own Game Up Nutrition, a CBD-infused nutrition and wellness company. Game Up crafts high-quality organic and vegan-friendly CBD products derived from hemp.
2. Kim Kardashian
CBD is one of the many beneficial wonders of the hemp plant. Because CBD does not produce the same intoxicating effects as THC, it is ideal for busy mothers like Kim Kardashian.
Kim even had a CBD-themed baby shower in April 2019 and claims that although the high involved with cannabis is not her thing, that she uses non-psychoactive CBD products to help her relax and feel more balanced.
3. Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston, most known for her role as Rachel on the TV show Friends, has not been shy about proclaiming the benefits of incorporating CBD into a daily regimen.
She mentions in an interview how it is ideal because it has all the benefits of cannabis without the high. Aniston is advocating for CBD as useful in assisting with pain, anxiety, and stress.
4. Seth Rogen
Not only has Seth Rogen been an outspoken advocate of medicinal cannabis for quite some time, but he has also done a significant amount of work in regard to legislation surrounding CBD. In 2014, Rogen appeared in front of the United States congress presenting his own familial experiences with Alzheimer’s disease.
Rogen requested that the federal government grant funding into the research of CBD for the management of Alzheimer’s symptoms. Today, alongside his wife Lauren, they operate the charity Hilarity for Charity, whose mission is to spread awareness and expand progress in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.
5. Michael J. Fox
Michael J. Fox is a Canadian/American actor and founder of the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1991 at the young age of 29. He is an advocate for the use of CBD and endorses CBD to manage the symptoms of this disease, which greatly impacts the functionality of the central nervous system.
The Michael J. Fox foundation signed a letter in 2016, along with 13 other organisations, requesting the US government grant more freedom to research the medical effects of CBD for Parkinson’s.
6. Alessandra Ambrosio
Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio claims that the most important aspect of a successful fashion show is getting a solid eight hours of sleep the night before. She claims that CBD has relaxing benefits and the idea that she can get a good night sleep motivates her to use CBD products and speak on their benefits.
7. Melissa Etheridge
Melissa Etheridge has been a major proponent of medical cannabis since being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004. After undergoing a heavy course of chemotherapy, she discovered the therapeutic aspects of supplementing cannabis with her cancer treatment, especially in relation to digestive issues and nausea.
Etheridge is such a big advocate for the medical use of cannabis that she opened a 47-acre. farm in Santa Cruz, CA. Etheridge’s business partners, the Robertos, owned a successful line of CBD products before partnering with Etheridge and her wife, Linda Wallem-Etheridge. They are now collaborating to deliver cannabis- and CBD-infused products to the public.
Although research is ongoing and incomplete as to whether CBD is as useful as it is claimed to be, many celebrities have been outspoken on its effectiveness in their personal lives.
