- Stars are making bold statements about cannabis acceptance, efficacy as they enter cannabis business
- Lofty product claims may be seen as marketing ploys, but experts say there can be wellness benefits
- PACR’s strong focus, dedication differentiates it from other cannabis offerings, even those from big-name players in the cannabis space
A growing number of celebrities are throwing their weight behind cannabis, an undeniable indication of the increasing acceptance of the compound — both as a medical and recreational option. A recent “USA Today” article notes that as more states legalize marijuana, more eyes are turning toward the industry, a trend that leading cannabis companies such as Pac Roots Cannabis (CSE: PACR) (OTCQB: PACRF) (FSE: 4XM) are in position to benefit from.
“What do Martha Stewart, Jay-Z and Jaleel White (aka Steve Urkel) have in common?” the “USA Today” article asks. “They’re all in the cannabis business. They’re among many stars, including Snoop Dogg and Seth Rogen, who have joined the industry in recent years and are making bold statements with their products. Stewart’s self-named brand of CBD gummies claims to ‘make wellness an easier choice, every day,’ and Rogen’s Houseplant strain THC promises to give a ‘smooth, warm and calming experience.’
“These lofty product claims may be seen as marketing ploys in an increasingly competitive industry, but experts say there can be wellness benefits to some of these products,” states the article, which mentions that Kristen Bell, Willie Nelson, Gwyneth Paltrow and “Crazy Rich Asians” actor Jimmy O. Yang have also lent their names to cannabis products.
Most celebrities are careful about what products they endorse, and the “USA Today” article notes that both cannabidiol (“CBD”) and tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”), cannabinoids found in the marijuana plant, may be beneficial. The article quotes Washington, DC, MD Patricia Frye, who says both CBD and THC can help with sleep, anxiety, metabolism, stress and appetite. “These cannabinoids are so helpful, (because) people are starting to move away from a lot of pharmaceuticals,” Frye says.
“Overall, it’s a lot safer than anything else you’d be using if you’re using it instead of opioids for pain or Ambien to help you sleep or instead of benzodiazepine for anxiety,” agreed Dr. Peter Grinspoon, a Harvard Medical School professor and a primary care doctor at Massachusetts General Hospital.
