Women of CBD: Busy Philipps leans on CBD to keep her mentally healthy

Celebs are and have always been the trendsetters, especially when it comes to what they consume to stay healthy and well. We all want to know what’s going on in their lives and everything they’re choosing to consume. The same goes to Hollywood actor Busy Philipps. She has featured in a number of hit TV shows such as Cougar Town, Freaks & Geeks, Girls5Eva and more. But she’s best known for keeping it real on her social media. She shares her relatable parenting moments, daily rants and random thoughts. “It’s never occurred to me, ever, since I became a professional actor at 19 years old, to not be as honest and truthful as I could be, publicly. Before social media and the Internet really existed, it was a lot more difficult to get across who you really were. So for me, the advent of Twitter, then Instagram and Stories was incredibly freeing, because I felt like I had a direct line to expressing exactly who I feel I am and the things that I struggle with.”  She explains.

When someone as real and honest as Busy Philipps is advocating for CBD, you know it’s legit. Although she seems very outspoken and bold, Busy does go through lows that can take a toll on her, which is why she leans on CBD. “I grew up in a family where mental health issues are...we’ve got ’em! I’ve had that since I was a kid—racing thoughts, unable to get control of my thoughts, spinning out into paralysis of not being able to do anything and crying hysterically about it, or just feeling totally helpless.” She elaborates on her mental health. With debilitating mental issues on hand, a family to run and a career to handle, we all could use a little help. “For me, getting the endorphins and the sweat every morning is part of what I think helps me keep it in check. I’ve also done acupuncture for it; the infrared sauna helps, and the CBD and THC gummies, which I’m a very strong proponent of now.” Busy Philipps says as she explains her relationship with CBD.

Even the best of us need something to lean on. When you find what that is, make sure it’s safe, natural, has no side effects and is non-addictive, something like CBD. This Woman’s Month can be extra special if you want it to be. Use code WMN10 when you shop to get 10% off!
