CBD is a big buzzword right now all across the nation— and for very good reason. The firsthand testimonials from people of all walks of life using CBD for pain relief, insomnia, anxiety, and stress-relief are astonishing. CBD works by supporting the body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS), the most important regulatory system in the human body. The ECS is responsible for controlling nearly every function of the body including sleep, appetite, mood, energy-levels, digestion, and even fertility. When the ECS becomes imbalanced, adverse symptoms may appear such as pain, inflammation, or anxiety. CBD works by restoring balance to the ECS and putting the body back into a state of homeostasis. People are finding relief from their worst symptoms with this completely drug-free product, that has little to no side effects! CBD does not make you high. Even celebrities are singing the praise of CBD and how it has helped restore their health and well-being.
America’s Favorite Actor Uses CBD for his Type 2 Diabetes
You’d be hard-pressed to find a person in the U.S. who doesn’t love Tom Hanks. What you may not know, is that this Oscar-winning actor has recently partnered with a Cornell University researcher to investigate the health benefits of cannabidiol, or CBD. After hearing stories about CBD vastly improving people’s health, Hanks decided to take matters into his own hands and partnered with the professional researcher to further investigate the medicinal benefits of the compound.
Hanks told CNN in 2017, “The first time I ever tried CBD was to soothe my anxiety. I was fed up of taking various pills to try and make me “better.” It wasn’t how I wanted to live my life anymore, so I gave CBD oil a try. It was a huge relief to feel like myself, yet the edge was gone. A bonus to the whole thing was the relief of various aches and pains I have.”
The actor has become one of the most high-profile supporters of CBD in recent years and has been using his platform to attract public attention on the medicinal value of plants. “The benefits of CBD oil are unlike anything any pill or medication can do.”
Hollywood “It” Girls are Big Fans of CBD
Hollywood “It” girls are turning to CBD to ease anxiety, soothe aches and pains, and to wind down after working long days. In 2018, actress Olivia Wilde shared her experience with using a CBD lotion to the New York Times. “Recently I did a play on Broadway for six months, and my body was wrecked,” she told the publication. “My neck was really tight. CBD has relaxing benefits and the idea is to avoid using too many painkillers.”
This is Us star Mandy Moore uses a CBD oil that her stylist recommended for sore feet after hours of wearing heels at red carpet premieres. Former Friends star Jennifer Aniston has found impressive benefits from the oil, claiming, “CBD helps with pain, stress and anxiety. It has all the benefits of marijuana without the high.”
The queen of social media herself has been a recent visible proponent of CBD, even going as far as throwing an elaborate CBD-themed baby shower for her fourth child. Kim Kardashian West hosted a bevy of celebrities and superstars to a zen-like backyard setup that had everything from CBD-infused bath salts to CBD body oils for guests to bottle themselves and enjoy. When asked about the reason behind the blissed-out theme that included a group sound bath and a CBD yoga session, West stated, “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.” We’d say, Ms. West is definitely on to something.
