A longtime country music superstar, singer and actress Reba McEntire has inspired some creative stories. But is there any truth to the stories she invested in CBD and shared products with Garth Brooks?

Reba McEntire says she didn’t invest in CBD or share gummy bears with Garth Brooks
In 2020, McEntire told PrideSource that she had just read a story that some people were “on their feet” about. Someone had falsely claimed they bought a CBD “store or a company or something”.
For those who don’t know, CBD is short for cannabidiol. It is one of the “most common cannabinoids found naturally in cannabis plants,” according to the Center for Advancing Health.
Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive. This means it doesn’t create a high, but it does relieve a variety of ailments such as anxiety and inflammation. That being said, McEntire said she didn’t invest in the products and doesn’t know where the story came from.
“Well, I’ve never done that before,” she explained. Even so, she said that people she knew were surprised and a little annoyed to read it.
“Well, when I’ve done it, I’ve done it,” she said. “But I haven’t invested in a CBD company.”
According to her, the article in question “named many very famous entertainers” she “turned on” for CBD, including Garth Brooks. She said of the story, “I don’t see how they get away with it.”
In closing, she laughed and made it clear that she hadn’t shared any CBD gums with Brooks.
Reba McEntire CBD is one thing that won’t go away
So McEntire may not be financially invested in CBD. But her name is still associated with it for some reason.
Recently, a video of the singer “I’m a Survivor” describing the symptoms of COVID-19 was reportedly edited to create the impression that she was an advocate of CBD. But of course that was exposed.
Although she has denied it, the unwanted attachment to CBD seems to be an ongoing thing. But anyone interested in legitimate celebrities for the products can find them in other places.
Celebrities use CBD for painful feet, insomnia, and other ailments
While McEntire isn’t interested in investing, other celebrities and stylists have raved about the benefits of using CBD. It’s supposedly great for relieving the pain of fashion.
As The Hollywood Reporter revealed, celebrity stylists have stocked up on CBD products for their clients to use during the awards season. Stars like Mandy Moore and Michelle Williams apply a cream about half an hour before putting on their shoes.
The products come in a variety of forms – from the types you ingest, to the types that you drop in the bathroom, to the types that you apply topically. Daniel Martin, Meghan Markle’s makeup artist, told THR, “You actually feel the immediacy of what it does, especially with Lord Jones cream for your feet.”
Kim Kardashian is also a fan and says she uses it to help her sleep, among other things. She actually likes the products so much that she hosted a CBD-themed baby shower.
So McEntire has not invested in CBD and apparently has not recommended any products. But interested parties can also easily find celebrity recommendations in a few other places.
