CBD isn’t just for the everyday individual struggling with anxiety, depression, chronic pain, or skin problems. Celebrities are also jumping on the CBD oil bandwagon, and they’re helping to spread the popularity of the product around the world. Here are 10 celebrities who clearly love their CBD.
1. Seth Rogen
If there’s one topic that comedian and actor Seth Rogen is passionate about, it’s the medical use of CBD. He is an avid spokesman for CBD used for medicinal purposes, which has led to the founding of Hilarity for Charity, an organization that raises awareness about cannabis medicinal benefits. The organization is trying to change laws by drawing public awareness to the cause.
He has used CBD products before as well, speaking about their benefits of pain management and anxiety treatment. He said on Twitter that he uses CBD for restless legs syndrome. He’s also very invested in researching the way CBD could help those with Alzheimer’s Disease.
2. Michael J. Fox
When Michael J. Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease at the age of 29, it shook the world. This young actor’s career was suddenly derailed, and his life was robbed of any normalcy. Since that time, he has done a world of good for the medical community and he uses CBD to help him cope with the effects of the disease.
There’s some research to indicate that CBD might help treat effects of Parkinson’s including reducing tremors, improving sleep, treating pain, and reducing anxiety. It seems to be working for Mr. Fox!
3. Mandy Moore
Moore spends a lot of time on her feet, whether she’s dancing, acting, or attending high-profile events in stilettos. She recently spoke about an experience she had attending the Golden Globes. While she always tries to wear comfortable footwear when attending events at which she’ll be standing for hours, the heels she chose ended up being torturous.
She’s using CBD oil to help her feel more comfortable from now on! “This year I’m trying some CBD oil on my feet, which my stylist recommended,” she told the media. “I asked her if there was some kind of numbing cream, and she was like, ‘No! Try… CBD Oil.’ So, it could be a really exciting evening! I could be floating this year.”
4. Morgan Freeman
In 2008, Morgan Freeman experienced a terrible car accident that led him to develop fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is characterized by severe episodes of muscle pain and spasms that are often triggered by an accident.
He reports that the use of CBD oil and THC products has been one of the best tools for combatting the pain and inflammation he sometimes feels on a daily basis. It has led him to become a major advocate for the legalization of medical cannabis.
5. Kristen Bell
Fans are always waiting for the next hilarious thing comedian and actor Kristen Bell will do or say, but she’s not joking when she says that CBD oil has helped her in many ways. She tells a story of experiencing severe back pain after going on a run, so she tried CBD cream on the site of her pain and reported feeling overnight relief!
She also talks about using CBD oil to help her overcome anxiety. She’s very open on social media about her struggles with mental health, and CBD is one of the few things that has helped long term.
6. Tom Hanks
Tom Hanks has been in the media a lot lately thanks to new products that have gained critical attention. During many of his interviews, he’s stated that he uses CBD to treat anxiety, and he says that overcoming anxiety has had a tremendously positive effect on his acting career.
“The first time I ever tried CBD was to help soothe my anxiety,” he shared. “I was fed up with taking various pills to try and make me ‘better’… It wasn’t how I wanted to live my life anymore. So I gave CBD oil a try. It was a huge relief for me to feel like myself, yet the edge was gone. A bonus to the whole thing was the relief from various aches and pains I have.”
Hanks even teamed up with Cornell University to look at the way CBD can help type 2 diabetes.
7. Whoopi Goldberg
Whoopi may be the least surprising name on this list. She’s not shy about her use of cannabis products, including CBD oil. This is one viewpoint she’s openly discussed on her show, The View, as well as in interviews and other settings.
Her use of CBD is primarily for pain, stress, and glaucoma. She states that the CBD works wonders for treating her pain and helping her feel peace when she’s overly stressed. She is also the co-founder of the marijuana company Whoopi & Maya, which sells CBD tinctures, salves, and edibles along with legally distributed marijuana products.
8. Kim Kardashian
It’s not really a surprise that the most famous of the Kardashians has tried CBD and likes it. In fact, she likes it so much that she reported being “obsessed with CBD everything” and she had a baby shower with the theme of CBD products.
Her favorite use of CBD seems to be topical salves that both soothe her anxiety and treat aches, pains, and inflammation. She says she likes to use it during her yoga practice to keep her body limber and relaxed.
9. Jennifer Aniston
Unlike so many television stars, Aniston’s acting career didn’t fizzle out after the finale of her debut show, Friends. She is a film producer, avid actor, and businesswoman, and her busy lifestyle calls for the use of CBD. She has used CBD oils to help her with focus, anxiety, stress, and pain. She says she especially likes to use CBD because “it has all the benefits of marijuana without the high.”
10. Montel Williams
Williams has been using CBD for over 20 years. He reports using CBD when he was first diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1999, and he’s been a strong advocate for its medical use ever since.
He encourages research on CBD to help show that it can lessen pain, fatigue, and muscle spasticity for those with MS. Now, he’s started a CBD company called Lenitiv, which produces CBD products to treat specific ailments.
