Martha Stewart, the ubiquitous retail businesswoman and TV personality, and Snoop Dogg, the rap legend (see Super Bowl LVI halftime show) who has an affinity for all things marijuana, may seem like an odd couple.
But they did come together for a food-inspired show on VH1 called “Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party,” which ran for three seasons starting in 2016.
Well, according to Palm Beach Daily News society columnist Shannon Donnelly, it appears Snoop made an impression on Stewart.
Because Stewart went into the pot business.
Or, as Donnelly reports, “OK, it’s not really pot like we of a certain age are used to. It’s wellness products containing CBD, derived from cannabis but lacking the ingredient that creates the ”high.”

Recently, Stewart celebrated the launch of her new Tropical Medley CBD Wellness Gummies, with a cocktail reception and dinner at The Colony hotel in Palm Beach, home to stars such as Sylvester Stallone, Donald Trump, Jimmy Buffet and Rod Stewart (no relation to Martha ). Stewart adds the new flavor to her existing CBD Wellness Gummies line.

The event was co-hosted by David Klein, the CEO of Canopy Growth, at an Ontario, Canaday-based cannabis company that, according to its website, is “focused on unleashing the power of cannabis to improve lives.” The TV personality, Stewart, started her CBD line in 2020 with her partnership with Canopy Growth.
As Donnelly reports, “there were CBD-infused cocktails served in coconut shells with mini-pineapple stirrers and citrus trees that were filled with hundreds of gummies. Yes, that was us eating the landscape.”
Donnelly said “the three-course dinner was topped off by Martha’s own coconut cake. To die, it was.”
According to Donnelly, people who attended the event included Daphne Oz, the daughter of cardiothoracic surgeon, best-selling author and talk show host Dr. Mehmet Oz, who also lives on the island; Lisa and James Cohen, the heir of Hudson News; famous photographers (Firooz Zahedi), art experts (Rudin DeWoody), singers (Nick Hissom), dancers (Isaac Boots) and actresses (Stephanie Hill), among others.
