- Martha Stewart recently launched a line of CBD products.
- She said she was inspired by her friend Snoop Dogg’s love of cannabis.
- Stewart doesn’t use THC products but consumes her CBD. .
The epic friendship of Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg has given us a TV show, a Super Bowl commercial, and now, a line of cannabidiol (CBD) products.
Stewart told CNBC Make It that while she doesn’t personally consume marijuana like her friend Snoop, she did become curious about some of the plant’s non-THC properties.
The celebrity lifestyle guru confirmed that her curiosity about CBD was “initially kindled by Snoop Dogg.”
“I mean I did three seasons of our show, ‘Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party,’ learning a lot about cannabis,” she said. “I’m not a user of cannabis but then I got very interested in not only cannabis but also in hemp and the derivatives.”
More and more people are turning to CBD, a non-psychoactive cannabis compound, to treat ailments like anxiety, pain, and insomnia. Stewart is one of those people.
After learning about the different possible benefits of CBD, she partnered with Canopy Growth Corp to develop a line of products to share with her friends and followers.
“I’m an insomniac and the CBD Martha Stewart oil drops are so helpful,” Stewart told CNBC Make It. “A dropper full of the orange [flavored oil] or a dropper full of the lemon . I also love my CBD gummies.”
But the celebrity chef’s CBD products aren’t limited to humans. On Tuesday, Stewart announced a line of CBD oil drops and soft-baked chews made specifically for pets.

“My dogs are not only my companions, but they are part of my family, and I prioritize their emotional and physical well-being as I do my own,” Stewart said in a statement. “Just as CBD can support human wellness, it’s been shown to improve the quality of life for pets as well.”
Snoop Dogg Brings Cannabis Product Line to Colorado Dispensaries
Celebrity-endorsed pot products are the wave of the future, with Tommy Chong backing a strain dubbed Chongstar and Willie Nelson lining up private equity funding for a brand to be called Willie’s Reserve.
But they’ve got nothing on Tha Doggfather.
Last night at a launch party in Denver, rapper Snoop Dogg announced a new partnership with LivWell dispensaries. Leafs by Snoop flower, edibles and concentrates will be available today at all LivWell locations and other select retailers in the next thirty days. “I’ve been at the forefront of the marijuana movement for twenty years or so,” Snoop Dogg said. “So to see it legal is a beautiful thing.”
The products, all picked by Snoop, will include eight strains of flower, wax and shatter, and an extensive line of edibles. He said he chose the strains himself based on their aroma, taste, effect and bud structure; the line consists of indica-dominant hybrids Bananas, Cali Kush, Northern Lights and Purple Kush, as well as sativa-dominant hybrids Blueberry Dream, Lemon Pie and Tangerine Man and high-CBD strain 3D CBD.
Leafs by Snoop strains are available for purchase in pre-weighed eighths, quarters and half-ounces. The concentrates, all strain-specific, will be made with those eight strains. The hash oil-infused edibles line will feature six different flavors of chocolate bars, as well as fruit chews, fruit drops and peanut butter candies.
LivWell owner John Lord said it was a long process securing Snoop’s endorsement — but he was excited by the path they were blazing together. Lord was able to lure Snoop into his Colorado chain before LivWell’s counterparts in the rapper’s native California. “This is the first time you’ve seen something like this,” Lord said.
Products will be available for both medical patients and recreational customers and will be grown and processed at LivWell facilities. Read below for edibles descriptions.

This isn’t the first time Snoop has injected himself into Colorado’s legal marijuana scene. During Denver’s pot-tax holiday September 16, he released a video praising Colorado’s legal marijuana industry for its economic and social contributions while wishing Coloradans a happy and safe day of indulgence.
