It’s been a long time since child star Miley Cyrus shook her “Hannah Montana” fame.
Despite a rocky couple of decades, news is that Cyrus has actually started to go straight in recent weeks. Miley has apparently switched off of marijuana and other drugs in favor of CBD and other hemp products.
According to Us Weekly, Miley’s mother Tish says she has entered an entirely new mindset since she stopped smoking pot.
“First of all, Miley doesn’t even smoke pot anymore. She smokes CBD only. She doesn’t drink,” Tish told hosts Ria Ciuffo and Fran Mariano on ‘The Chicks in the Office’ podcast, according to Yahoo! Entertainment. “She’s the cleanest person I know. She’s, like, she’s just so solid.”
Miley’s new sober status has been going on for about a year now, Us reports, and in that time she has even playfully poked fun at her parents, who continue to partake.
"It's really hard because especially being young, there's that stigma of 'you're no fun'. It's like, 'honey, you can call me a lot of things, but I know that I'm fun.’” Miley said, according to the Omaha World-Herald. “The thing that I love about it is waking up 100 per cent, 100 per cent of the time. I don't want to wake up feeling groggy. I want to wake up feeling ready."
The singer may be famous for her performance of “Blurred Lines,” but it seems things in her life are growing clearer all the time.
But given that she still uses CBD, what should the ordinary person take from her experience?
CBD seems to be an effective placebo or replacement for Miley, but many Americans love to use it for their own reasons.
The science on CBD and its medicinal properties are still being ironed out as time goes on — the substance was only made legal in 2018 — but the non-intoxicating relative of marijuana has certainly become popular.
Many love to use CBD for their chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia and other uses.
Although no studies currently show its usefulness in fighting alcohol or other addictions, hemp flower resembles marijuana and smoking it could present a viable off-ramp for those who have formed too much of a dependence on it and hope to quit, like Miley Cyrus.
Still, research on that phenomenon and other health possibilities will have to be performed before we can know more for certain.
