From Whoopi Goldberg to Jennifer Aniston to Dakota Johnson but also …
Whether we like it or not, celebrity trends and influences shape much of the society we live in today-and this is no different for CBD. In fact, celebrity candor and approval surrounding CBD have helped lead it to the position it holds in the mainstream today. Bringing awareness and education to CBD is one of the most important factors in reducing the stigma surrounding it. By talking about their experiences with CBD, celebrities have helped push not only a change in attitude, but a change in regulations and legislation. So who is using it and for what – here is our top five:
This legendary actress and Academy Award winner originally began advocating the use of CBD as a method of stress and anxiety relief, but has since said she also incorporates it into her life to “break away from her hectic schedule.” Goldberg found relief in CBD when she suffered from glaucoma and menstrual cramps to such a positive degree that she founded her own medical marijuana company.
Jennifer Aniston has barely changed since she entered our screens as Rachel Green in Friends back in 1994 — and we love and envy her for it. Back then, Aniston talked about smoking cannabis, but now, older and probably wiser, she has chosen the THC-free version. The actress uses CBD to help with pain, stress and anxiety.
Tommy Chong rose to fame in the 1970s as one half of the Grammy-winning comedy duo “Cheech and Chong,” who are notable for their love of cannabis. When Chong was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2010, he decided to use natural medicine and also took the opportunity to use his illness as an education on CBD as a treatment. Chong used CBD hemp oil, cannabis therapy and other lifestyle changes. A year after his diagnosis, the cancer disappeared, and Chong attributed it to CBD. Unfortunately, in 2015 he was diagnosed with colon cancer. He is now using a more aggressive form of treatment, and “using cannabis like crazy” to deal with the side effects.
It is not news that Canadian comedian Seth Rogen enjoys smoking marijuana. What is perhaps more surprising is that Rogen is a big proponent of CBD use. In 2014, when his mother-in-law was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, he testified before Congress in favor of a change in legislation surrounding CBD. He also supported increased funding for Alzheimer’s care, which includes more CBD research.
Forget gray, for Dakota Johnson it’s 50 Shades of CBD. The actress spoke in an interview about using CBD to help her adapt and get much-needed rest when she is traveling. CBD has been linked to homeostasis and general relaxation, both of which work to improve sleep quality.
