CBD just keeps on growing in popularity and it’s not just normal people like you and I who are using it, your favourite celebrities are too!
Earlier this year CBD made its debut on the red carpet featuring in the Oscar’s goody bags. The theme of the 2019 gift bags was self-care, hence why celebrities who attended received a variety of CBD infused products.
However, there are many A-Listers who were using it before and after the Oscar’s. Here are just a few of the big names using CBD and why:
Kim has been promoting CBD on her Instagram for a while, and of course the sceptics were thinking it was just for the ‘ad’ money.
However, recently, Kim had a CBD baby shower for her 4th child, claiming that it’s ‘so zen.’ She said she wanted a ‘calm before the storm shower’ and CBD was the perfect way to do this.
Kim openly suffers with the skin condition psoriasis, another reason she might be an avid user of CBD. CBD can help psoriasis by balancing the immune systems response.
Although the process isn’t fully understood, it is thought to be related to a problem with the immune system. The immune system is your body’s defence against disease and infection, however in people with psoriasis, it attacks healthy skin cells by mistake.
People with psoriasis have an increased production of skin cells. Skin cells are normally made and replaced every 3 to 4 weeks, but in psoriasis this process only takes around 3 to 7 days. The resulting build up of skin cells is what creates the patches associated with psoriasis.
CBD oils and balms can help reduce inflammation and skin cells growth, both of which help sufferers of psoriasis.
Justin Bieber recently spoke about his struggles with depression and his wife, model, Hailey Bieber has opened up about how she uses CBD Oil to help her sleep.
Speaking to W magazine she said she’s never been into THC, or enjoyed how it felt being high. “I’ve never liked it at all, but I like CBD because I enjoy feeling the relaxation. I use it in lotions and it helps a lot. My parents are super big on it too.”
Another famous model who swears by CBD for sleep is Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio.
In an interview she said the most important thing to do before a big runway show is to get a good 8 hours sleep the week before.
She said that this was hard as she suffers from anxiety the night before but she uses CBD Oil to help her sleep.
After enduring a nearly fatal car accident in 2018, Morgan Freeman uses CBD to treat the fibromyalgia he suffers. Due to the intense pain and discomfort he experienced, he opted for plant-based medicine and is now an advocate for CBD.
The former friends star is another celebrity who doesn’t hide her love for CBD. She uses is for pain, stress and anxiety. She told US Weekly that it offers her all of the benefits of marijuana without getting high.
UK TV presenter Jenny Powell recently revealed that CBD oil helped cure her migraines. The former wheel of fortunes star said she had been having migraines for years, some of which would last for up to three days. She tried doing more yoga and cutting out dairy products, both of which just did not work.
Her husband then suggested she tried CBD Oil and after taking it for 10 weeks, she had been completely free from attacks.
Jenny was prescribed a strong medication from her doctor but like many people who choose to use CBD oil she said she wasn’t big on medicine. Many CBD users take CBD over medication for their illness as they prefer to take the natural route.
Gwyneth Paltrow has been credited for with popularising and normalising CBD use within the beauty and wellness industries, thanks to featuring the ingredient on her lifestyle brand ‘Goop’s’ website.
As well as sharing recipes for several CBD cocktails, Paltrow and her team have also covered a first timers experience at a CBD boutique and how she plans CBD dinner parties!
These are just a few of the growing list of big names using CBD to help them in their day to day lives. However, as well as celebrities advocating for CBD, big make up brands are also introducing CBD into their products.
Make up giants Revolution Beauty have recently released a whole line of products infused with CBD such as CBD skin nourishing oil and CBD skin essence spray.
With CBD’s popularity rapidly on the rise, we’re sure this list isn’t going to stop growing any time soon!
