Celebrity CBD Oil Users You Probably Don’t Know
Even before the 2018 US Farm Bill was signed into law, many people are already using CBD for its touted benefits. In fact, CBD oil has been dubbed as the go-to supplement in 2018.
But the use of CBD is not limited to the common folks alone. Believe it or not, even celebrities have been using CBD oil to address their medical needs. Here’s a list of the famous Hollywood names using CBD oil.
1. Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston rose to fame portraying Rachel Green on the TV sitcom FRIENDS. The American actress uses CBD for pain, stress, and anxiety. In an interview with US Weekly, Aniston said CBD “has all the benefits of marijuana without the high.”
2. Alessandra Ambrosio
Victoria’s Secret stunner Alessandra Ambrosio takes CBD to help her relax before cat-walking down the runway. In an interview, the first spokesmodel of the company’s PINK line said that her secret to preparing the night before the prestigious Victoria’s Secret Show is to get eight hours of sleep. But she admitted that “it’s hard because the mind gets anxious, so I try CBD oil and I think it helps.”
3. Olivia Wilde
Known as Dr. Remy “Thirteen” Hadley for her role on the medical-drama TV series House, Olivia Wilde admitted to using CBD to help her relax.
“I’ve been using this body lotion that has CBD in it,” the American actress told the New York Times. “Recently, I did a play on Broadway for six months, and my body was wrecked, my neck was really tight,” Wilde said CBD provides relaxing benefits and helps her avoid from taking painkillers.
4. Michael J. Fox
Back to the Future trilogy star Michael Fox said CBD oil has given him hope. The Canadian-American actor was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1991 at the age of 29. He only shared his condition to the public in 1998 and partly retired from acting 2 years after as the symptoms have worsened. Since then, he has become an advocate for research towards finding a cure for Parkison’s disease.
“If there is anything working with CBD Oil has shown me, it’s that there is always hope. Even for the hopeless,” Fox said.
5. Whoopi Goldberg
Famous for her breakthrough role Celie in the period drama film The Color Purple, Whoopi Goldberg said she takes CBD to relieve her from discomfort without experiencing a high.
“I feel like if you don’t want to get high, this is a product specifically just to get rid of discomfort,” the American actress and comedian said.
6. Nate Diaz
American professional mixed martial artist Nate Diaz also admitted to smoking CBD. He once caused some commotion during a post-match press conference after falling to McGregor at UFC 202 back in 2016 when he openly smoked his vape pen.
When the Lightweight and Welterweight UFC fighter was asked about the pen, he admitted it contained CBD. He further explained that it helps him with the healing process and reduce inflammation.
“So you want to get these for before and after the fights, training. It’ll make your life a better place,” he added.
7. Kristen Bell
Most known for her role on TV series Veronica Mars, Kristen Bell admitted to using CBD on an episode of the WTF with Marc Maron. The American actress said she takes CBD oil every day to help her with her anxiety, explaining she “really believes” of CBD’s healing properties.
