Great film scripts and excellent music are products of a creative process that, according to your favorite celebs, cannabis stimulate. Would the music or the films be any less awesome than they are? Who is to say.
Managing Work-related Stress
Your favorite celebrities work hard, and it can take a toll. You may only see the glam and the perfect Hollywood lifestyle, but these guys do put in the work; writing scripts and songs, filming across different locations, preparing for the various acting roles, hours of choreography classes to perfect those dance moves, shooting music videos and attending various industry events.
They are only human, after all. Using some marijuana helps to take off some of the edges and relax after a long day. Seth Rogen has said that being “high all day, every day” helps him manage his daily grind.
Managing Health-Related Issues
“He looks so sickly” was something that comedian Pete Davidson had gotten used to hearing about himself. No, he wasn’t on some fad diet or intentionally losing weight in preparation for a movie role. Poor guy couldn’t keep the weight on because of the effects of Crohn’s disease. One of the effects of the disease is that it curbs appetite. Some strains of cannabis, on the other hand, help to improve appetite. In addition to Crohn’s disease, Davidson has also said that smoking marijuana helps him manage his bipolar disorder.
Your favorite songstress Lady Gaga has also been very vocal about how smoking marijuana has helped her with pain management.
