Women of Cannabis: Olivia Wilde chooses CBD over painkillers

We got familiar with Olivia Wilde through the hit TV Show ‘House’ but after the show ended in 2012, she has gone on to act in Broadway, direct films and write books too. Her directorial debut was appreciated by critics and viewers alike. Wall Street Journal said that "Nothing funnier, smarter, quicker or more joyous has graced the big screen in a long time." As Olivia Wilde continues to explore her passions and grow in her career, she is not exempt from health hazards induced from work. She too undergoes tiredness, pains and aches from long hours on stage and on camera. And for this, she has recently declared that she turns to CBD.

“Another thing I’m a huge believer in, in terms of body care: I’ve been using this body lotion that has CBD from marijuana that I discovered it through my friends in LA. Recently I did a play on Broadway for six months, and my body was wrecked.  My neck was really tight. The CBD has relaxing benefits, and the idea is to avoid using too many painkillers.” She told the New York Times.

And she’s absolutely spot on with this one! Why bother yourself with the harmful side effects of pain killers when you can stick to something that gives you similar results with no side effects? Topicals are amazing for treating pain. They are loved by athletes too and are known for being able to alleviate high levels of pain. Celebrities are also known to use CBD topicals on their feet while walking the red carpet to make the pain more bearable. Not only that, it can also be used pre and post workout to manage pain, soothe the body and reduce inflammation.

If you face any of the above situations at work or your daily life, consider switching to CBD tinctures or balms to help you manage the pain. For the ladies, this month we’ve got flat 10% off with the code WMN10 so if you want to get started the time is now!
