Once reserved for kush lovers to gather and light up, April 20 has become an unofficial national holiday. With the legalization of recreational cannabis in 18 states, online and brick-and-mortar retailers and brands are toasting 4/20 with deals on hemp-powered products.
And these days, you can’t throw a rock without hitting a celebrity cannabis line: Snoop Dogg, Tommy Chong and Cheech Marin, Willie Nelson (who has a coffee brand), Jay-Z (who launched Monogram in 2020), Seth Rogen (who co-founded Houseplant with writing partner Evan Goldberg), Martha Stewart and John Legend (an investor of Plus Products) are just a handful of stars who have gotten into the ganja game.
Hollywood is also behind products that won’t get you high (sorry). Kristen Bell and DJ Khaled are behind skincare brands infused with hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD), which doesn’t contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), marijuana’s pyschoactive ingredient. According to Harvard, research suggests that CBD may help in alleviating anxiety, insomnia and pain, and could potentially reduce cravings of tobacco, alcohol and other addictive substances.
In honor of 4/20, we’ve rounded up CBD products to try from star-backed brands — including many that donate profits to nonprofit organizations that provide resources (from housing and record expungement to free legal services and more) to those affected by marijuana prohibition. Whether you’re seeking skincare, tinctures for sleep or sex, or accoutrements for toking up, check out a handful of goods for celebrating the leafy green plant.
