•  CNN reports that Martha Stewart is coming out with a new CBD line that includes e hemp-derived, cannabidiol-rich gummies, soft gels and oil drops.

"I was surprised to learn that while most people have heard of CBD, less than 20% of us have actually tried it," Stewart told CNN. "For me, that signals a lot of opportunity to create beautiful, elevated products that help people live well."

According to the story, "The products are the result of the style maven's partnership with Canopy Growth (CGC), the Canadian cannabis company with a multibillion-dollar backer in US alcohol giant Constellation Brands (STZ). Stewart joined Canopy as an adviser in early 2019 for the express purpose of developing cannabis products for humans and their pets after being introduced to Canopy's founder by her friend Calvin Broadus Jr. -- the rapper and businessman better known as Snoop Dogg. His Leafs by Snoop cannabis brand is produced by Canopy."
