John Legend Invests in Hemp-Based CBD Product Line


John Legend is the latest A-lister to invest in CBD, as Billboard reports that he's formed a new partnership with Plus Products Inc., based in San Mateo, California. Legend is expected to serve as an advocate for  the company's new hemp-based CBD products, which launch nationwide on Tuesday. Those products include several flavors of edible gummies, including some that contain melatonin to promote sleep. "I have been a believer in the benefits of CBD for some time," Legend says in a statement. "I was drawn to the Plus team because they're an innovative, family-run company, and they use science to deliver a consistent, high-quality product." Legend joins such celebs as JAY-Z, Post Malone and Whoopi Goldberg, who have all gotten into the cannabis biz of late.
