Stars are using CBD cream in this unexpected place
This is how they survive those long red carpets
The Golden Globes marked the beginning of the flashy, opulent, and over-the-top 2019 red carpet season, where celebrities must pose and answer interview questions and accept awards for hours on end in high heels that make your feet hurt just by looking at them. But they've got a trick up their sleeve—or down their pant leg—and it's cannabis.
No, those dazed, dreamy red carpet smolders aren't a result of stars hot-boxing their limousines before stepping out in front of hundreds of cameras. But, they are dipping their toes in the increasingly popular plant in the form of CBD cream, rubbing it on their feet so that they can float down the red carpet and flash genuine smiles.
Page Six Style spoke to E! style expert Zanna Roberts Rassi, who confirmed that many celebrities in Los Angeles have started to use CBD cream to numb the pain from heels, particularly the Lord Jones formula (which Michelle Williams happens to swear by).
Other stylists to the stars have also revealed their A-list clients' preference for Lord Jones' CBD lotion, including Karla Welch, who dresses the likes of Karlie Kloss, Sarah Paulson, Judy Greer, Tracee Ellis Ross, and Elisabeth Moss.
"Their pain and wellness cream with CBD is the absolute CURE for aching feet on the red carpet," she wrote, before answering the question on everyone's mind: "Don't worry, your feet aren't going to get high."
"Until designers learn how to make a stiletto as comfy as sneakers, @thelordjones is in my styling kit. #thisisnotanad." It would seem that CBD cream is only going to skyrocket in popularity, since the prospect of a comfortable stiletto is essentially a paradox.

CBD (cannabidiol) comes from the cannabis plant, but the reason it won't get your feet high, so to speak, is because it has no psychoactive effects, unlike THC (tetrahydracannabinol). It's legal throughout the US, and there are many different options, some cheaper than Lord Jones' $60 cream, that will do the trick.
The cream is applied topically, and the CBD is absorbed into the bloodstream slowly, thereby alleviating local pain and inflammation. It doesn't act instantly, so it's a good idea to apply the cream proactively on areas that are all too familiar with that burning high-heel pain, like the balls of your feet or the tips of your toes.
CBD can also be ingested in the form of an oil for more general pain relief, but you'll want to make sure there's no THC in it, or else you're in for something a little different than a subtle numbing effect.
