These days, CBD is widely recognized for its wellness properties by people from all walks of life. A lot of that recognition comes from the way many of today’s biggest stars have embraced the CBD phenomenon. Here are six of Hollywood’s most notable CBD proponents.
1. Mandy Moore
What’s one of the worst things about attending all those red-carpet events? Well, if you ask This Is Us star Mandy Moore, she’d tell you standing around in uncomfortable heels all night is high on her list. In fact, she says the pain in her feet caused by her stilettos was bad enough to warrant an early end to the night’s events a couple of years ago.
“Last year, I thought I had gone for a pair of comfortable heels. But, by the end of the night, I was in so much pain I felt like I was walking on glass, so I kind of ended the evening early,” Moore told Coveteur about her 2017 Golden Globes appearance.
By the next year, Moore had a new plan to help make her uncomfortable footwear a little more bearable.
“This year I’m trying some CBD oil on my feet, which my stylist recommended,” Moore said before heading to the 2018 Golden Globes. “So it could be a really exciting evening! I could be floating this year!”
2. Olivia Wilde
The pain-relieving benefits of CBD extend far beyond the red-carpet, as House actor Olivia Wilde attests. Wilde revealed that when she made her Broadway debut in 2017, she turned to CBD to help soothe her aching muscles.
“Recently, I did a play on Broadway for six months, and my body was wrecked. My neck was really tight,” Wilde told The New York Times. “The CBD has relaxing benefits, and the idea is to avoid using too many painkillers.”
3. Kristen Bell
You don’t have to be gracing the red-carpet or starring in a Broadway production to get the advantages of CBD. Kristen Bell, who played the titular character in the iconic teen drama Veronica Mars, says CBD is a great way to speed along her post-workout recovery.
“I love my [CBD] body lotion for my sore muscles after working out,” Bell posted in an Instagram story.
4. Alessandra Ambrosio
We can probably all agree that getting a good night’s rest is key whenever you’ve got a big day ahead of you. But that isn’t always easy when you’re all wound up about the big event you have coming up. That’s why supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio takes a little bit of CBD oil the night before she walks the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
“The most important thing to do [to prep for the Victoria’s Secret Show is to sleep eight hours the night before,” Ambrosio told Well + Good. “It’s hard because the mind gets anxious, so I try CBD oil, and I think it helps.”
5. Leighton Meester
CBD can also be an excellent addition to your daily wellness routine. Just follow Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester’s lead and add a bit of CBD to your regular self-care routine to help keep your busy life from becoming overwhelming.
“I do little touches during the day to make myself feel more centered or rejuvenated. I drink my tea in the morning, have an essential oil diffuser in my trailer, and use a foam roller to give myself a massage whenever I have a chance,” Meester told Shape. “I use CBD balm to try to reduce the stress and tension in my shoulders and hands.”
6. Kim Kardashian
When the stresses start to get a little out of hand, CBD can help you out there too — at least that’s what Kim Kardashian thinks.
When Kardashian was anticipating the arrival of her fourth child via surrogate, she admitted that she was feeling the pressure and pain. To help off-set the stress and re-center herself before the newest addition arrived, she decided to throw a relaxing CBD-themed baby shower.
“So, because I’m freaking out and the baby is coming in, like, two weeks, I thought what better way to celebrate than to have a little CBD,” Kardashian explained to her guests.
