Cannabis and cannabidiol (also known as CBD) are gaining more popularity and influence by the minute, and a new trend appears to be emerging around this topic.
In particular, the use of CBD oil has been publicly endorsed by celebrities such as Whoopi Goldberg, Morgan Freeman, Tom Hanks, Michael J. Fox, Olivia Wilde, Mike Tyson, and Jennifer Aniston, and is currently being supported by an ever-increasing number of known international celebrities.
Moreover, following this trend, one other fine example of these displays of support towards CBD oil use has happened last weekend in the U.S.
The American celebrity Kim Kardashian, married to the famous rapper Kanye West, hosted a Meditation & CBD – themed baby shower for her friends and family.
Kardashian’s CBD baby shower was organized by the well known party planner Mindy Weiss, in honor of Kim and Kanye’s soon-to-be fourth child, and included activities such as meditation, sound baths, flower arranging, tea serving, and massages. Besides these relaxing activities, the guests were able to make their own CBD-infused bath salts, oils, and other products.
According to various sources throughout the media, Kardashian encouraged friends and family to “have a puff or put on some oil”, admitting she was “freaking out” with the thought of having her fourth child in two weeks.
Interestingly, besides relaxing and fun, Kardashian’s CBD baby shower was also highly informative to everyone present. After providing her guests with classes on how to make their own CBD oil-infused products, the celebrity also explained that CBD does not create a psychoactive “high”, unlike cannabis or its compound THC, and went even further declaring that “[taking CBD oil is] how I survive in life”.
CBD oil is widely regarded for its health benefits and, unlike cannabis, its use is legal in most American and European countries. This substance has been included in the most various products and contexts, such as edibles, cosmetics, mobile apps, or even yoga classes. CBD is known for its anti-anxiety properties, among others, thus supporting Kardashian’s choice for the party’s theme.
