Beyoncé‘s interview in the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar has been trending online. The mogul and musical genius sat down and gave an insightful interview of her life during the pandemic. Of course, Beyoncé also teased new music and blessed readers with a handful of new images to stare at. One of the best parts of the interview, however, is when the Queen of Pop reveals that she is building a hemp farm.
“During quarantine, I went from overindulgences to creating positive rituals drawing from past generations and putting my own spin on things,” explained Beyoncé. “I discovered CBD on my last tour, and I’ve experienced its benefits for soreness and inflammation. It helped with my restless nights and the agitation that comes from not being able to fall asleep. I found healing properties in honey that benefit me and my children. And now I’m building a hemp and a honey farm. I’ve even got hives on my roof! And I’m so happy that my daughters will have the example of those rituals from me. One of my most satisfying moments as a mom is when I found Blue one day soaking in the bath with her eyes closed, using blends I created and taking time for herself to decompress and be at peace. I have so much to share…and there’s more to come soon!
Beyoncé’s exploration with CBD most likely began with edibles or tincture bottles filled with cannabidiol oil. When such a big figure champions hemp and cannabis use for purely medicinal reasons, it helps to wipe away the stigmas surrounding the plant.
