Kim Kardashian Talks CBD: ‘It’s Saved My Life’
Four kids, law school, and multiple businesses keep Kim Kardashian pretty busy. But when she does have some downtime, she counts on CBD to help her relax.
“How do I do it all? It is exhausting,” she told People. “I just say CBD. But I do. It really has gotten me through a lot.”
Short for cannabidiol, CBD is a non-intoxicating chemical found in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC found in marijuana, CBD doesn’t make you high. Kim explained to People that though she like trying various types of CBD products, she is “not a weed smoker at all.”
She adds: “That’s not my thing. I got into CBD a few months ago. It’s saved my life. Even to sleep at night. I like the gummies. I will just use a little bit and fall asleep [laughs]. I don’t think I would take a Xanax or an Ambien again.”
CBD has become trendy, earning a reputation as a cure-all for everything from anxiety to depression and even acne.
Recently, news emerged that Kim tested positive for lupus antibodies. The Season 17 premiere of Keeping Up with the Kardashians on Sunday ended with Kim being informed by her doctor that antibodies associated with lupus and rheumatoid arthritis were found via blood tests.
