There’s been no shortage of news about CBD in the past few years, especially when it comes to celebrities. In 2021, it was estimated that the global market size of CBD is $5.2 billion. The industry is growing, and CBD is now endorsed by some of the biggest celebrities in the world.
According to research by Alphagreen.io, more than 8 million people in the UK bought CBD in 2020. At Moonlit CBD, we’re proud to be advocates for CBD and the ways in which it can improve people’s lives. Here are just a few celebrities that use CBD.
Celebrity CBD Advocates
Like so many of us, celebrities use CBD for a variety of reasons. In the past few years, more celebrities have come out in support of CBD and its uses.
There are a few unconfirmed reports of certain celebrities out there, and even some unscrupulous companies using celebrities’ names and images to attribute them to try and sell CBD products. However, there are many celebrities who are open about their CBD use that regularly talk about it on their social platforms. Many have even gone on to set up their own CBD brands because they truly believe in CBD and how it can help others.
Kristen Bell has been a CBD advocate for a while. The star of many hit films (like Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and TV series, including The Good Place and Veronica Mars, she’s also known for her voice acting in Disney’s animated Frozen films.
Kristen even launched her own CBD skincare range called ‘Happy Dance’ back in 2020. The brand offers a range of CBD skincare products and was inspired by Kristen’s own use of CBD products.
Morgan Freeman reportedly uses CBD to help with pain relief. Whilst there’s not a whole lot out there that can be attributed directly to the star, in October 2021The Express reported that Freeman battles with fibromyalgia following a car crash in 2008 and there have been several reports that he allegedly takes CBD to help deal with the pain.
Morgan Freeman is not one to shy away from his opinion of cannabis, telling the Daily Beast,“…I have fibromyalgia pain…and the only thing that offers any relief is marijuana…” in an interview back in 2015.
Joe Rogan is reportedly a big advocate for CBD and how it’s helped him with his anxiety. During one of his shows on the Joe Rogan Experience, he said, “I didn’t even know I had anxiety until I started taking CBD.”
With over 12 million subscribers on his Youtube channel, Joe has a lot of followers and many guests on who he’s had different chats with about the subject. He also once discussed it with Elon Musk in episode #1609 talking about the benefits of CBD. Listen to the episode here (from around 50 minutes in) to hear Joe’s thoughts on the uses of CBD and how it can help different people.
Blink 182 and Transplants drummer, Travis Barker has quite a passion for health and wellness. He said in an interview with Men’s Health in 2021 that one of the reasons he took CBD was to help his body recover from the strain of touring. A lot changed for Travis in 2008, wellness became a priority after he survived a plane crash that tragically killed four of the six people on board.
An advocate for many years, Travis Barker has seen and felt the benefits of CBD for himself, putting his name behind his new brand, Barker Wellness. He was also a guest on the Joe Rogan podcast, telling Joe that he suffered from a condition called trigeminal neuralgia (nicknamed suicide disease) which causes an onset of severe facial pain that causes all of your facial muscles to fire at the same time. He mentioned to Joe that he takes CBD to help manage the pain.
The lead singer of the metal band, Five Finger Death Punch launched his own CBD brand ‘Moody’s Medicinals’ back in June 2019. As of July 2022, they are back in the lab to refine their products, but the brand promises to be back soon with new and improved products.
Here at Moonlit, we think the quality of our CBD products is of the highest importance. It’s one reason we publish our lab results on all our products to give our customers full transparency and peace of mind.
