What has these superstars so excited about CBD? Here are some of the top celebrity uses of the substance and what they have to say about it.

Skin Perfecting Properties

Perfect skin is essential when you’re in front of the camera, and many stars are using a replenishing CBD cream to remove dark spots from their skin, treat sudden pimples, fight aging signs, and tighten up stretch marks.

Preliminary research on CBD for skin treatment indicates that CBD has antioxidant properties that can liberate dry, stretched skin and fight off damaging free radicals. It might even help to prevent skin cancer.

It also has skin normalizing properties, helping to tighten flabby skin, remove unsightly scars, and provide deeply penetrating moisture. For celebrities who show a large portion of their bodies, this can be an invaluable aid in their beauty routines.

Kim Kardashian West and Kourtney Kardashian have both endorsed the use of CBD for their glowing, flawless skin. As reported on Yahoo! Entertainment, Kourtney said: “I’ve become an even bigger fan of hyaluronic acid for my skin over the past year,” Kardashian says in a press release. “It has completely transformed my texture and tone, and I have fallen more in love with it as… I have been testing and tweaking the Hyaluronic Halo + CBD Serum formula.”

She says she uses it daily for best results.

Treatment for Anxiety

CBD is most commonly used to treat anxiety. It helps the mind and body relax so that the user can tolerate or even enjoy stressful situations. It’s so effective that according to one study, more than half of those who take anxiety medications and CBD chose to throw out their prescription drugs and let CBD do the work.

Today, discussions of anxiety and mental health disorders are more common than ever, and many celebrities have opened up about their battles with anxiety and depression. Recently, Busy Phillips shared her experiences with anxiety in a Health.com interview.

“I was in New York and almost the whole day was, like, a full panic attack,” she said, talking about an experience she had in the summer of 2018. She mentioned trying a number of remedies like acupuncture and an infrared sauna as well as “CBD…gummies, which I’m a very strong proponent of now.”

Anxiety is far more common in the celebrity world than you might realize. More stars are talking now about the debilitating anxiety they feel when performing in front of people, attending social events, and even venturing outside where the paparazzi might be waiting. For them, a low side-effect, non-prescription treatment for anxiety is the perfect tool for their success: Enter CBD in any preferred medium.

Pain Relief

CBD is a natural cannabinoid that interacts with the endocannabinoid system within your body. This system is responsible for hormones related to all sorts of regulatory systems, including pain and inflammation relief. When under the influence of CBD, your body has a better chance of reaching homeostasis and muting the pain.

Actress Mandy Moore told Coveteur that her favorite use of CBD oil is for pain. She talked about the agony of being in heels on the red carpet.

“I always try to choose really comfortable shoes because as I’ve gotten older, I just can’t hack being in heels for an extended period of time,” she told reporters. “Last year I thought I had gone for a pair of comfortable heels, but by the end of the night I was in so much pain I felt like I was walking on glass, so I kind of ended the evening early—although honestly, I’ll find any excuse for an early night. This year I’m trying some CBD oil on my feet.”

Moore says that her stylist Erica Cloud recommended it after Moore said she was looking for numbing cream to help her handle the pain.

Other celebrities say they use CBD cream as well. Kristen Bell spoke with The Strategist about back pain that should couldn’t shake. She applied CBD cream to her back, saying “Honestly, five minutes after I did, I already felt 85 percent better. I am completely sold. Now, I’m giving it out left and right, practically to strangers on the street. Everyone deserves to feel 100 percent.”

CBD creams and lotions are the most common ways to apply pain relief and the most marketed, but CBD can also be taken orally for pain. It can help to relax the mind and body so that pain relief can set in.

Sleep Improvement

If anyone understands the importance of beauty sleep, it’s a supermodel like Alessandra Ambrosio. She shared her secret to looking so fresh and lovely at every show, stating that it was all about getting at least eight hours of sleep the night before. However, she struggled to do this before using CBD because of pre-show jitters.

“The most important thing to do is to sleep eight hours the night before. It’s hard because the mind gets anxious, so I try CBD oil and I think it helps,” she told Well+Good before the 17 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows.

CBD’s use for anxiety can relax the body and mind, enabling the user to drift off peacefully. It will also target muscle aches and pains, helping the user to sleep more peacefully and for longer. Anyone who suffers from sleep disorders or an overactive mind can benefit from using CBD oil, just as celebrities like Ambrosio have discovered.
