It seems that celebrities are hopping on the CBD trend as well. In an interview with People magazine, Kim Kardashian has revealed that she uses CBD to help her relax.
CBD, which is a non-intoxicating and non-hallucinogenic derivative from the cannabis plant, is used by many people to alleviate pain, induce relaxation, and treat anxiety and depression, among other benefits.
The 38-year-old reality star confessed that taking care of four kids under six, on top of being a celebrity, is a tough job. Before she discovered CBD products and their potential benefits, Kim K took prescription drugs like Ambien and Xanax to help her cope.
But with her discover of CBD a few months ago, Kim no longer uses prescription drugs.
“I got into CBD a few months ago,” she said. “It saved my life. Even to sleep at night. I like gummies. I will use just a little bit and fall asleep.”
This seems to be an effective way to enjoy the benefits of CBD for her, as she doesn’t like to smoke weed. Although unlike weed, CBD products do not contain THC, which makes its users feel high.
CBD Popularity in the Beauty and Entertainment Industries
Apart from the popular CBD products that we are familiar with now, such as CBD tinctures and infused topical creams, CBD is also being incorporated into cosmetics. Makeup brands like Kiehl’s and NYX are picking up on the trend because of CBD’s anti-inflammatory benefits.
Other benefits of CBD include relief of pain and anxiety, which Kim has found useful in her battle against lupus, an auto-immune disorder that she was diagnosed with recently.
People, celebrity and non-celebrity alike, may want to consider CBD as an alternative treatment for their health problems. Although these health benefits are not set into stone, CBD has shown to be a useful alternative for prescription medication.
