Here are the celebrities who are opening up about it.
The GOOP guru has promoted a wide range of alternative wellness products and techniques, from skin “cupping” to crystal therapy, so CBD is downright mainstream in comparison. Her site includes articles on using CBD for PMS, instructions on how to navigate a cannabis boutique, and a chat with actress Meg Ryan about her love of CBD bath bombs.
How She Does CBD: GOOP had Gracias Madre mixologist Maxwell Reis develop four cannabidiol-spiked cocktails just for the website, including a gin & tonic, which Reis described as: “a combination of California-grown aromatics and a CBD oil float that complements the citrusy botanical notes found in both cannabis and your favorite gin.”
