Domestic mogul Martha Stewart is creating a line of CBD products

Occasionally controversial domestic mogul Martha Stewart is getting in on a slice of the cannabis product craze — starting off with CBD items for pets. The lifestyle guru and friend of weed aficionado Snoop Dogg has reportedly partnered with massive Canadian marijuana company Canopy Growth to create a line of hemp-derived, non-psychoactive CBD products. “I’m especially looking forward to our first collaboration together, which will offer sensible products for people’s beloved pets,” Stewart says. Stewart is certainly an animal lover. Her fur babies are frequently featured in posts to social media and she already sells a line of pet products, so this feels like a natural fit for the lifestyle empress.
