Celebrities are usually all out flaunting their latest fitness and wellness routine, teaching us all how to look and feel great. 

But lately a few have started discussing their newest passion: CBD oil, particularly for stress.

 

Entertainers Speak Out About CBD Oil 

For example, Jennifer Aniston 

Told US Magazine that “CBD helps with stress and anxiety. It has all the benefits without the high.”

 

Kim Kardashian West 

is perhaps the most famous celebrity advocate when it comes to CBD oil for stress. Us Magazine reported on her use of the hemp-derived substance, and quoted her saying, “I’ve been a huge fan of CBD ever since I started feeling overwhelmed, which came with starting law school and having a fourth baby.

 “It was a combination of feeling like I’m not going to have time for myself and thinking this is going to be too overwhelming, and not really believing in myself that I can do it or surrounding myself with the people who can help.”

 

Kristen Bell,

Known for her work on television and movies (FrozenVeronica MarsThe Good Place), also uses CBD oil for stress and depression. In an interview with womens health she credited CBD oil for helping turn off her mental to-do list, which tended to run around in her mind constantly. She’s known to use CBD tinctures and gummies.

Olivia Wilde

Wilde opened up about her love of CBD lotion in an interview.

"Recently I did a play on Broadway for six months. My body was wrecked, [and] my neck was really tight. The CBD has relaxing benefits, and the idea is to avoid using too many painkillers."

Michael J. Fox

Tom Hanks

 

Athletes and CBD 

Most of the high-profile athletes who go on the record about their CBD routines have already retired. This is not surprising, since most major American sports leagues have only opened the doors for active players to use CBD recently.

 

Major League Baseball and the National Football League made the first moves in late 2019 and early 2020 respectively. How athletes in those sports will implement CBD into their lives remains to be seen.

But some sports follow the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) policies, which permits the use of CBD. PGA golf and international competitions like the Olympics follow WADA policies.
