Referring to Kim Kardashian as a trendsetter would be an understatement. Based on the baby shower she threw over the weekend, we hope her influence continues.
The reality show superstar and her husband Kanye West are expecting their fourth child, but Kardashian seems a bit over the typical baby shower. This time she opted for a unique party theme—CBD.
“I thought it was kind of ridiculous to have a fourth baby shower. But I thought I’m freaking the fuck out having a fourth kid,” Kim said at the party. “So, because I’m freaking out and the baby is coming in, like, two weeks, I thought what better way to celebrate than to have a little CBD.”
CBD use has become a developing trend for stressed mothers and even for those looking to combat postpartum symptoms. As a mother of three, Kardashian already seems well versed with using CBD to calm anxiety. Although it is not clear if CBD has any negative effects on expectant mothers or developing children, those concerned with Kardashian using CBD while pregnant should be relieved to know she is having her fourth child via surrogacy.
CBD is a cannabinoid known for its medicinal uses that does not produce the psychedelic effects commonly associated with THC. This seems to be one of the main reasons the compound has caught on with so many parents.
At the baby shower, guests took a little time to relax with CBD on yoga mats.
“It’ll only be 10 minutes, but I thought it would be, like, cool for us to do…zen out on a Saturday,” Kardashian said. “So have a puff or put on some oil.”
Kardashian seemed pleased with how the party turned out and was appreciative of those who attended and helped put it together.
“Thank you to everyone who celebrated baby #4 with us! It was perfect!” Kardashian wrote on Instagram. “Thank you to @mindyweiss & your team! And @hellomd_com & your team for making it happen.”
It seems WebMD was just as happy to be a part of the baby shower. “HelloMD was thrilled to work with Kim Kardashian West on her baby shower,” a source close to the event’s planning said, according to E! News. “Their board-certified cannabis and CBD doctors answered guests’ questions, and they brought some of their favorite brand partners to infuse high-quality, organically cultivated CBD into the Yeezy spa. It was beautiful.”
