There's plenty of drama on your favorite Bravo shows, but here's a secret: Behind the scenes, things have been pretty chill for plenty of the cast members. With the rising popularity of CBD, a non-psychoactive part of the cannabis plant, several Bravo personalities have been inspired to get involved.
And it's no wonder why: Used in everything from oils to tinctures and teas, CBD is said to have benefits ranging from better sleep to less anxiety and improved heart health. Who wouldn't want a piece (or a dropper full) of that? Keep scrolling to learn more about the Bravo personalities who are making the world a more CBD-lightful place.
1. Tamra and Eddie Judge
In January, The Real Housewives of Orange County couple launched VENA Wellness. The popular brand supplies tinctures, gel capsules, and creams, and its fan base includes several fellow Bravolebs. Braunwyn Windham-Burke and her family swear VENA tames anxiety, while Jeff Lewis uses it for sounder sleep. Heather Dubrow has even said that she uses the VENA cream to soothe her aching feet!
For Eddie and Tamra, launching the brand was a personal decision that was years in the making. After Eddie ran into some trouble with his heart health, he told Heather on her podcast: "It was important to us to find a solution that was naturopath, that was not synthetic, that I could use since I have to take an anti-rhythm drug and a blood thinner to help me through this A-Fib chapter in my life. So when we discovered the benefits of CBD, it just opened up a whole wide range of possibilities — not just in the potential alleviation of this medical issue that I was experiencing. But just in general, it helps with so many different aspects of life. It just made sense for us to choose CBD as a product that we could bring to market and help everybody benefit from it."
2. Mike Shouhed
The Shahs of Sunset entrepreneur doesn't just have a CBD brand. If you ask Mike, he's repping "the Rolls-Royce" of CBD brands. (What can we say? This Shah has some swagger.) Though Mike hinted at some haters and doubters along the way, Au Sante has now officially launched. The luxury product line offers gummies, tinctures, and creams, all wrapped up in peacock-strewn packaging.
3. Eva Marcille
Just a day after she gave birth to her son Maverick, The Real Housewives of Atlanta mama launched her CBD line, cEVAd. The line contains a tincture and a moisturizer, which won't be available to shop until November. But being a mogul has its perks: Eva has said that she already uses both goodies herself, on a daily basis.
4. Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi
Mike's not the only Shah who's been bitten by the cannabis bug. "GG," the self-described "cannabis queen," founded WüSah in 2018. The company has put out cold-pressed beverages infused with CBD and THC and vape pens, and is now advertising a CBD Boost drink enhancer.
