Kim Kardashian exchanged her prescription medication for CBD oil and she is not going back. It is hard work to be a reality star, not to mention raising four children. All of them younger than six years old. But she seems to be a proud mother, even in some of her most tiring days. With little help from the non-destructive chemical cannabidiol found in cannabis plants.
During a conversation with People Magazine, Kim Kardashian revealed a secret that says it helps her rest. Star Beauty told them, “How can I do that? It is tiring. I will just say CBD. But I know it. I really think it helped me along the way to go nowhere.”
Does Kim smoke marijuana?
This does not mean that a popular fashionista is a weed smoker. Because as she clearly says that it is simply “none of her business.”
“I started a few months ago with CBD,” said Keeping Up The Kardashian star. “It saved my life,” she added: “Even at night. I love jelly beans. I just use a little to sleep.”
Kim Kardashian noted that her new discovery meant that she no longer had to take prescription drugs. “I do not think I will be taking Xanax or Ambien again,” the megastar said. CBD emerges in many cosmetic brands, including Kiehl and NYX from the anti-inflammatory properties it seems to have.
What is CBD?
For those who do not know yet, CBD is one of the cannabinoids that occur in cannabis, apart from tetrahydrocannabinol ( THC ). But unlike THC, CBD does not make one high when consumed. CBD has recently become more popular because of its perceived effectiveness in relieving pain and anxiety. Does CBD get you high? What are the actual benefits? Will it show up on a drug test?
There’s no question that CBD is the buzzy wellness product of the moment. If you live in a state where it’s currently legal, you might feel like CBD went from being sort of around to absolutely everywhere all at once. Coffee shops sell CBD lattes, spas offer CBD facials.
Moreover, beauty companies are rushing to release lotions with CBD or hemp oils in their formulas. And everyone from your anxious coworker to your arthritis-suffering dad wants to get their hands on some CBD gummies.
A chemical compound from the cannabis plant
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a chemical compound from the cannabis plant. It is a naturally occurring substance that is used in products like oils and edibles to impart a feeling of relaxation and calm. Unlike its cousin tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it’s not psychoactive.
The cannabis plant is made up of two main players: CBD and THC. “CBD is a non-psychoactive portion of the plant, so what that means is you won’t have any effects like euphoria,” says Junella Chin, DO. She is an osteopathic physician and a medical cannabis expert for cannabisMD. “You won’t feel sedated or altered in any way.”
Kim recently had to deal with some health fights. She burst in tears on her reality show, when she revealed that she had an autoimmune disease called lupus. But later she told ABC today that the situation is “under control.”
Situation with Kim
She explained: “I managed to find a great doctor, Dr. Wallace, and it became clear what the problem was. Unfortunately, he had to get me medication to stop the symptoms. I tried for a long time natural and we choose the best route for me to be happy. Everything is under control, but the autoimmune problems are really terrifying.”
