CBD is bang on trend, so much so it’s become a staple amongst Hollywood royalty.
Numerous celebrities have come out extolling the virtues of CBD in their lives. In this feature with ELIXINOL – we take a look at the A Listers adding a C, B and D into their lives.
Everyone’s favourite actor Tom Hanks was one of the first to declare his experiences about the supplement. In a 2017 interview with CNN, he gave a candid response to the question “So Tom, how did you find out about CBD?” how he discovered CBD.
Tom Hanks: “The first time I ever tried CBD was to help soothe my anxiety. I was fed up with 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 for me to feel like myself, yet the edge was gone. A bonus to the whole thing was the relief from various aches and pains I have. Especially the Arthritis in my knees. It IMMEDIATELY alleviated 90% of my pain.”
Michael J. Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1991 at the age of 29. His condition forced him to semi-retire from acting at the turn of the century. He has since begun using CBD as a means of alleviating his Parkinson’s symptoms. According to Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research that a high amount of cannabinoid receptors are found in the human basal ganglia, which is a circuit of brain cells that controls movement and is affected by Parkinson’s disease.
Michael J. Fox has funded several studies according to which, cannabinoids, like CBD, may help to protect brain cells via antioxidant and anti-inflammatory mechanisms. He says: “If there is anything working with CBD oil has shown me, it’s that there is always hope. Even for the hopeless.”
Whoopi Goldberg was so impressed with CBD she started her own company in 2018 called Whoopi and Maya. The Sister Act star has previously said: “I feel like if you don’t want to get high, this is a product specifically just to get rid of discomfort” Jennifer Aniston of Friends fame This down-to-earth celebrity has openly admitted her struggle with pain, anxiety, and stress. It doesn’t surprise me that she turned to CBD to feel good on a daily basis. “CBD helps with pain, stress, and anxiety”, Jennifer Aniston told US Weekly, “it has all the benefits of Marijuana without the high”.
Alessandra Ambrosio finds CBD helps her sleep. She won’t be the first (or last) Victoria’s Secret Angel to suffer from sleepless nights in the run up to the world-famous runway show, but the model has previously turned to CBD oil to “help her nod off“, and has found it works for her. “It helps me sleep when I’m anxious. The most important thing to do (before a runway show) is to sleep eight hours the night before but it’s hard because the mind gets anxious, so I try CBD oil and I think it helps”.
Olivia Wilde uses CBD oil to relax. The actor-turned-director found her body was ‘wrecked’ after a long Broadway run. Keen to avoid painkillers, she started using a CBD-infused body lotion. “Recently I did a play on Broadway for six months, and my body was wrecked. My neck was really tight. The CBD has relaxing benefits, and the idea is to avoid using too many painkillers”.
