Cannabidiol (or simply CBD) is a non-psychoactive, chemical substance that nowadays is taking the world by storm. But it is not just the general public that has helped raise awareness of CBD and various infused items like CBD drops, capsules, topicals and edibles.
As celebrities are no strangers to the trendiest ingredients and products that are getting popular, many public figures have also started using and endorsing CBD oil for anxiety and depression, pain and many other ailments. Here are four celebrities who swear by CBD and the reasons why they decided to use CBD products.
American actress and singer Emma Roberts seems to be in love with CBD products. After she suffered from a tragic car accident in 2010 which not only destroyed her newly purchased car but also left her in pain, Emma turned to CBD to help relieve her aches. Also, one of her favourite products is a CBD bath tonic that she uses to reduce stress levels and soothe her entire body.
American actress and filmmaker Olivia Wilde lives a fulfilling life, playing numerous different roles. In 2017, she also made her Broadway debut, where she played the lead character role, Julia, in 1984.
However, after she did a play on Broadway for six months, her neck was really tight while her body was wrecked. To avoid using too many painkillers, Olivia referred to the relaxing benefits of CBD. Using CBD lotion turned out to be effective for her in relieving muscle soreness and pain.
As some who are sensitive to the adverse reactions of different medications, American stylist/fashion consultant, author and magazine editor Stacy London sought an alternative to relieve her pain after spine surgery and psoriatic arthritis. This led her to CBD products, which turned out to be effective, and after 10 days, she got off of the prescription painkillers and never looked back.
In addition to using CBD oil for pain relief, Stacy is also a huge fan of CBD lotion, which helped her to alleviate sore muscles from wearing a brace after surgery and sore joints, which is great for her psoriatic arthritis as well as improve skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and dry skin. She even applied it at night to aid in healing her surgical scar!
Canadian-American retired actor, film producer, author and activist, Michael J. Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1991, at the very young age of 29. Nine years later, he decided to found the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Disease Research (MJFF), which is considered the largest non-profit foundation in the world conducting research on Parkinson’s disease and aims to raise funds for research, treatment and, ultimately, a cure for this serious illness.
One of the treatments that MJFF focuses on is medical marijuana, especially the use of CBD oil. Several of these studies include researching CBD as an alternative treatment for managing the signs and symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Michael J. Fox is also reportedly using CBD to treat some of his symptoms and recommends other people with Parkinson’s to try the same.
