Meet 7 of the Many Celebrities who Openly use CBD
Despite the glitz and glamor, celebrities don’t necessarily have it easy. Many struggle with serious health conditions, such as Parkinson’s Disease, fibromyalgia, glaucoma, as well as anxiety disorders.
Research has scientifically proven that CBD has anti-inflammatory as well as anti-oxidant properties that are effective in treating a number of physical and neurological conditions. In a study on patients with social anxiety disorder published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology, researchers found CBD effective in significantly reducing the anxiety of their patients. As a result, it’s no surprise that multiple celebrities, such as Michael J. Fox, Jennifer Aniston, and Morgan Freeman, to name a few, have come forward about using CBD and openly endorsed its medicinal properties.
The renowned actress Jennifer Aniston made a name for herself as Rachel in the 10-season long, award winning sitcom, Friends. Since then, the actress has appeared in a number of box office hits, such as Marley and Me, Horrible Bosses, and most recently, Dumplin’. Aniston has also appeared in Aveeno commercials over the years. She’s no stranger to the limelight, and no stranger to CBD products, either.
“CBD helps with pain, stress and anxiety,” household name and renowned actress Jennifer Aniston told US Weekly, according to Daily Mail. “It has all the benefits of Marijuana without the high.”
Michael J. Fox
The star of the critically acclaimed Back to the Future trilogy Michael J. Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease at the tender age of 29 in 1991. Since then, Fox has started The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, which has funded research towards finding a cure and methods of alleviating the symptoms associated with Parkinson’s Disease. This includes research involving CBD, which The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research has openly discussed on their blog. Fox has also said that he personally uses CBD oil to help manage his condition.
Actress, comedian, and author Whoopi Goldberg has not only voiced her use of CBD oil to treat her glaucoma and menstrual cramps, Goldberg and Maya Elisabeth launched a line of award winning CBD edibles under the name Whoopi & Maya in 2016. According to an article on their website, their products were featured in over 300 dispensaries in California within a year, making their collaboration one of the fastest growing brands in the state. Since then, they have also started selling their products in dispensaries across the state of Colorado, the first state to legalize both medical and recreational marijuana in 2014.
The Grammy Award winning artist Rihanna is a long-time advocate for the legalization of marijuana and has never shielded her use of cannabis from the public, according to Billboard. To this day, the artist continues to support the legalization of cannabis, and believes strongly in the medicinal properties of CBD.
Known for his smooth, soothing voice, Morgan Freeman was diagnosed with fibromyalgia following a near-fatal car crash in 2008. In an interview with Esquire, Freeman revealed that he experiences chronic, excruciating nerve pain and is unable to use his left hand.
“Marijuana has many useful uses,” Freeman told the Daily Beast during an interview. “I have fibromyalgia pain in this arm, and the only thing that offers any relief is marijuana. They’re talking about kids who have grand mal seizures, and they’ve discovered that marijuana eases that down to where these children can have a life. That right there, to me, says, ‘Legalize it across the board!'”
The daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, is most recognized for her role as Anastasia Steele in the Fifty of Shades of Grey series. She has also appeared in hits such as, How to be Single, 21 Jump Street, The Social Network, The Five Year Engagement, and most recently Suspiria.
Dakota has also come forward and spoken about her use of CBD as a sleep aid, especially while traveling. Elle reports that Johnson is “devoted to using CBD drops.”
Actor and comedian Seth Rogen, known for his role in movies such as Pineapple Express, Superbad, Neighbors, and The Interview is arguably one of the most vocal celebrity advocates of cannabis use, including CBD. Rogen has also founded Hilarity for Charity after his mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease.
Hilarity for Charity is an organization dedicated to spreading the awareness of and funding research towards Alzheimer’s Disease. The organization has funded multiple grants for studying the research of CBD as a form of treatment for Alzheimer’s Disease. Rogen himself has even appeared in front of Congress to discuss the lack of funding for Alzheimer’s Disease research, CBS News reports.
When the camera stops rolling, many of the stars we know and love are dealing with some serious health conditions, including Parkinson’s Disease, glaucoma, and anxiety disorders. As a result, actors, actress, and singer-songwriters alike have come forward and spoken about the use of CBD in alleviating their symptoms.
