Melissa McCarthy Used CBD Oil On Her
Toes At The 2019 Oscars Red Carpet and
You’ve seen many people wear heels and experience pain in their legs and ankles. Heels are not always comfortable. Hence, there are hacks for that. CBD Oil was used by Melissa McCarthy for the 2019 Oscars award function to relieve her from the pain caused by wearing high heels, and the trick has actually worked!
According to the E! Live From The Red Carpet special correspondents, McCarthy slathered CBD oil on her toes before hitting the red carpet — presumably to help prevent the pain that can come along with wearing high heels for an hours-long event.
The actor, however, isn't alone in trying the hack. According to Page Six, several celebrities have embraced this seemingly easy trick for their carpet appearances. But does it work? The site spoke to Dr. Suzanne Levine who explained that the oil does, in fact, work on localized pain and can reduce inflammation. Perhaps that's why McCarthy isn't alone. The piece cites stars like Mandy Moore and Michelle Williams who are also using CBD as a way to help ease their high heel woes.
The actor chose to wear pants instead of a gown in this big event. Her black, wide leg trousers rose to her natural waist and featured what seemed to be a cummerbund-esque waistline. McCarthy's top was a solid white with wide, large sleeves and deep neckline.
While you can't see McCarthy's heels, they're apparently there, and they must hurt. Thanks to that handy CBD oil hack, though, McCarthy could probably walk the carpet free from that pesky toe pain.
The hack of wearing CBD oil for heel pain may have gotten its biggest boost thanks to This Is Us star, Mandy Moore. Coveteur was given exclusive access to Moore as she got ready for the 2019 Golden Globes. While preparing for the red carpet, Moore told Coveteur that she would be using CBD oil on her feet thanks to the recommendation of her stylist Erica Cloud. Apparently, Moore and her stylist weren't alone. The site explains that Olivia Wilde uses the same product.
For an article on Who What Wear, Aemelia Madden tried the trick herself. She saw that CBD oil was really effective in treating the aches and pains caused due to wearing high heels.
CBD-infused products became a trend after the after the 2018 Farm Bill made growing hemp legal in the U.S. Scientists agree that CBD oil interacts with the endocannabinoid system of our body to fight pain and inflammation (among other things).
Bustle previously spoke with Richard Kaufman, Chief Science Officer of NanoSphere Health Sciences and Evolve Formulas who explained that CBD works by blocking receptors in the endocannabinoid system which thus blocks users from experiencing pain, including, perhaps, the pain associated with wearing heels..
If you've been skeptical of trying CBD oil, I only ask you this: If it's good enough for Melissa McCarthy and Mandy Moore's feet, shouldn't it be good enough for you?.
