Top 6 Celebrity CBD Brands to Try Now
Published on 11/15/21
The wonders of CBD have taken the mainstream by storm and aren't showing any signs of slowing down. Within just a few years, this niche product has turned into a worldwide phenomenon, as people are reaching for CBD oil first before their prescriptions. With such a popular and effective product, everyone wants to get in on a piece of the pie. Especially as the stigma of cannabis has slowly continued to erase over time with increased legalization efforts across the country. Those looking to cash in include celebrities, and we're here to tell you which brands and endorsements are actually worth your money.
What is CBD?
Many people may not know this, but there are over one hundred chemical compounds that are found within the cannabis plant. However, there are two compounds that heavily outweigh all the others in popularity, and those two are CBD and THC. While THC is what gives the smoker the "high" that is associated with cannabis use, CBD does something much different and perhaps much more therapeutic.
CBD, or cannabidiol, delivers no psychoactive effects whatsoever to the user and generally provides alternative medicinal benefits. While studies are still in its infancy, the initial findings have been groundbreaking. CBD offers a wide range of symptom relief as it works within the body through the endocannabinoid system to combat diseases and ailments.
CBD works with the body to not only keep homeostasis but restore balance in the body if necessary. You'll find that this wonder substance will regulate your body's response to stress, can help with seizures, fight acute pain, aid in anxiety and depression and even contains anti-inflammatory properties.
The CBD Boom
The explosion of this market would never have been possible if it weren't for the Farm Bill of 2018. What is this, you may ask? The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 was signed into law in December of 2018, meaning that hemp was removed from the Controlled Substance Act. Due to this action by the government, the US could now enjoy CBD products without breaking the law since CBD can be derived from hemp. Not only did this open the door for enjoying CBD, but it also opened the door for broad hemp and CBD cultivation as it removed restrictions on the sale, transport or possession of hemp-derived products.
Where is the Market Now?
Since the restrictions have lifted on hemp-derived products, the market has never looked back. A cannabis and CBD consumer data analytics company, The Brightfield Group, expects CBD sales to reach $5.3 billion in 2021, compared to 2020's $4.6 billion. It looks like the drink and gummy space will be the fastest growing product type for the year 2021, while tinctures still maintain the highest retail sales at 18% of the entire space. A cornerstone of the cannabis industry is innovation, and CBD companies are constantly keeping consumers on their toes yet satisfied with new flavors, designs and new cannabinoids to experiment with.

Tommy Chong CBD
This Canadian actor, musician, director and comedian is best known for his work on his comedy albums and movies with Cheech & Chong, as well as appearing on That 70s Show. As a fierce cannabis activist, he believes that "If more people were stoned, there would be less violence in the world." With that mindset, he created a CBD brand with an array of topicals, tinctures and much more. With products like the Good Vibes Energy Tincture, Chong claims that cannabis saved his life.
Travis Barker is still the face of punk music in America and hasn't slowed down over the past few decades. He understands what it's like for a busy lifestyle to take a toll on your body, hence the creation of his vegan, THC-free CBD wellness line.
