High-profile celebrities including Jennifer Aniston, Tom Hanks, and Zachary Levi have experienced the benefits of CBD and openly shared their positive experiences.
While some celebs are hesitant to use CBD due to its close relationship to marijuana, here’s 10 celebrities who use CBD!
1. Tom Hanks, Actor
As a Type II Diabetic, Tom Hanks began researching the therapeutic benefits of CBD for diabetes and stress-related conditions and concluded that “the benefits of CBD oil are unlike anything any pill or medication can do.”
Since then, Tom has experienced life-changing relief with CBD and is perhaps one of the biggest supporters of CBD amongst celebrities. His statement from a 2017 interview with CNN is an inspiration for the impact CBD can have on someone’s life:
“The first time I tried CBD was to help smooth my anxiety. I was fed up with taking various pills to try and make me ‘better.’ It wasn’t how I wanted to live my life anymore, so I gave CBD oil a try. It was a huge relief for me to feel like myself, yet the edge was gone. A bonus to the whole thing was the relief for various aches and pains I have, especially the arthritis in my knees. It immediately alleviated 90% of my pain.”
2. Kim Kardashian, Public Figure
Like her other interests, Kim K is very open about her obsession with CBD. On her IG story, she recently wrote: “Anyone that knows me knows I am obsessed with CBD everything!”
In a recent interview with E! News, the social icon even shared that her upcoming baby shower will be “CBD themed.”
3. Jennifer Aniston, Actress
As an A-list actress and highly respected expert in the skin care and beauty industry, Jennifer Aniston is a renowned icon in the world of beauty.
In an interview with US Magazine, Jen shared that “CBD helps with pain, stress, and anxiety,” and provides the many benefits of cannabis without making her high.
4. Whoopi Goldberg, TV Host
Renowned celebrity, media personality, and co-host of the View, Whoopi Goldberg is the found of Whoopi & Maya, a company that focuses on the legal distribution of medical marijuana.

5. Travis Barker, Musician/Producer
Travis Barker, the drummer of the beloved punk band, Blink 182, is a big supporter of CBD.
The musician recently shared how CBD changed his life in a podcast with Joe Rogan:
“I’m one of those people whose mind is racing constantly. I’ll get home from the studio at 1 or 2 and I’m just like, figuring out how long I gotta sleep before I get to wake up my kids to go to school. And I just sit there with my wheels spinning unless I use CBD.”
6. Michael J. Fox, Actor/Director
Michael J. Fox, renowned actor who debuted as Marty McFly in Back to the Future, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease at the young age of 29. In an effort to find relief and better understand his condition, Fox started the Michael J. Fox Foundation, a charity dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease.
To date, the foundation has invested over $650 million into research for Parkinson’s Disease, which makes the Michael J. Fox Foundation the largest non-profit organization researching Parkinson’s in the world.
In addition to funding several studies researching the therapeutic potential of CBD for Parkinson’s, Fox himself uses CBD to find relief and shares that, “If there is anything working with CBD oil as shown me, it’s that there’s always hope… even for the hopeless.”
7. Olivia Wilde, Actress
In an interview with the New York Times, Olivia Wilde shared that she’s a big believer in CBD, particularly for body care.
“Recently I did a play on Broadway for six months,” the actress shared. “My body was wrecked. My neck was really tight. The CBD has relaxing benefits, and the idea is to avoid using too many painkillers.”
8. Zachary Levi, Actor
As the star of the recent DC film, “Shazam!” Zachary Levi underwent radical health and physical transformation in preparation for his role, and this dramatically changed his impact on natural health.
In a Twitter conversation on therapy and self-love, the lead actor in “Shazam!” said, “I would highly recommend looking into CBD oil. I think it’s one of the creator’s greatest gifts, particularly for stress and anxiety.”
