Amy Schumer Reveals CBD Is “the Only Thing” That Helped Her Pregnancy Nausea

Amy Schumer suffered hyperemesis during pregnancy before delivering baby son Gene.

Amy Schumer just gave birth to her first child with husband Chris Fischer — a baby boy named Gene. But throughout her pregnancy, she was open about the extreme challenges she experienced with a condition called hyperemesis, a complication marked by severe nausea and vomiting.

Now that she's on the other side, Schumer shared a candid Instagram post detailing some of her top takeaways from pregnancy. For one thing, "Women are the s---." And for another, "Hyperemesis is real and it’s awful." Fortunately, it went away as soon as she delivered — but Schumer opened up in her post about the one thing that helped her cope while she was suffering with the condition: CBD.

"The only thing that helped me with my nausea was products from @thelordjones," she wrote on Instagram. The Lord Jones produces CBD products infused with broad-spectrum CBD, "derived from select hemp cultivated in the U.S.A.," according to the brand's website. To clarify, there is no THC in the products; they do not have psychoactive effects. 

Lord Jones makes gumdrops and chews "by hand in small batches from single origin Ecuadorian dark chocolate, imported natural European fruit essences and broad spectrum CBD extract derived from select hemp cultivated in the U.S.A., as well as tinctures "expertly crafted from five ingredients... [to] retain the plant’s original terpenes and phytocannabinoids to deliver a broad spectrum formula."

The company re-grammed Schumer's post, writing, "We love you Amy, Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing Moms out there, you have the hardest, most important and rewarding job in the world."

Ok here’s my post baby annoying post and my takeaway from pregnancy. Women are the shit. Men are cool and whatever but women are fucking warriors and capable of anything. I was lucky enough to get to have a doula. Her name @domino_kirke @carriagehousebirth what do doulas do? I don’t totally know But what she did was make me and Chris feel totally secure and supported throughout my pregnancy and the birth process. I really recommend getting one if you can. Doctor Brill and all the nurses and pediatricians at Lenox Hill and all the other hospitals i spent time in this year, thank you for everything. I did Pilates with strong women and went for walks. I threw up violently and felt sick mostly every day of my pregnancy. Hyperemesis is real and it’s awful. But fuck, what they say is true. The second you give birth it’s gone. @hgmoms has the best research I found on the condition The only thing that helped me with my nausea was products from @thelordjones I learned that globally 1 in 5 births take place without the assistance of a skilled birth attendant. @everymomcounts is a great place to donate $250 equips a midwife with a bag of medical equipment needed to provide care to hundreds of women and babies in Guatemala. All my friends. Friends I’ve had for 30 years or people who encouraged me to “keep going” or telling me “it will be worth it”. Thank you. Every woman I encountered is so willing to help and advise you and I felt all their strength. And you were right. Thank you ladies from my family. Chris, Gene and of course Tatiana #titsleaking #wearingadiaper
