Michael J. Fox, renowned actor who debuted as Marty McFly in Back to the Future, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease at the young age of 29. In an effort to find relief and better understand his condition, Fox started the Michael J. Fox Foundation, a charity dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease.
In addition to funding several studies researching the therapeutic potential of CBD for Parkinson’s, Fox himself uses CBD to find relief and shares that, “If there is anything working with CBD oil as shown me, it’s that there’s always hope… even for the hopeless.”
#5 Tom Hanks
Tom Hanks initially researched the reported benefits of CBD to help alleviate stress and discomfort caused by diabetes. According to reports, Hanks believes that the “the benefits of CBD oil are unlike anything any pill or medication can do.”
Since Tom began taking CBD, he claims to have experienced life-changing relief with CBD. Today, he is perhaps one of the biggest supporters of CBD amongst celebrities.
His statement from a 2017 interview with CNN is one of the most compelling statements about CBD from a celebrity at such a high status as Hanks:
“The first time I tried CBD was to help smooth my anxiety. I was fed up with taking various pills to try and make me ‘better.’ It wasn’t how I wanted to live my life anymore, so I gave CBD oil a try. It was a huge relief for me to feel like myself, yet the edge was gone. A bonus to the whole thing was the relief for various aches and pains I have, especially the arthritis in my knees. It immediately alleviated 90% of my pain.”
