There are plenty of reasons to use products infused with cannabidiol (CBD): It can reduce inflammation and even help ease anxiety and fight insomnia. But Mandy Moore might’ve found the most functional use for the marijuana plant-derived compound: It might make sky-high heels a lot more comfortable.
The actress is constantly hitting up red carpets and events in support of This Is Us, but the whole wearing-heels-for-hours thing wasn’t working in her favor.
“I always try to choose really comfortable shoes, because as I’ve gotten older, I just can’t hack being in heels for an extended period of time,” Moore told Coveteur. “Last year I thought I had gone for a pair of comfortable heels, but by the end of the night I was in so much pain I felt like I was walking on glass, so I kind of ended the evening early…. Although honestly, I’ll find any excuse for an early night.”
But thanks to a life-changing (or at least shoe-game-changing) tip from her stylist, Erica Cloud, extreme foot pain from heels could now a thing of Moore’s past.
“This year I’m trying some CBD oil on my feet, which my stylist recommended. I asked her if there was some kind of numbing cream, and she was like, ‘No! Try Lord Jones CBD Oil.’ So it could be a really exciting evening! I could be floating this year.” —Mandy Moore

The next time you rock a pair of heels, give the stuff—which Olivia Wilde is also into for its relaxing benefits—a try. And beyond easing shoe-related woes, the product, which contains 2mg of CBD per pump, also claims to quickly absorb to help with sore muscles and joint pain.
But, pro tip: Chic embellished sneakers are a super-comfortable way to jazz up any worthy outfit.
