Jane Fonda Discovers Hemp, Hops Aboard CBD Bandwagon

Jane Fonda with Uncle Bud’s Hemp body lotion

In a cheeky disco video posted at Instagram, Jane Fonda reveals that she is now working with Uncle Bud's Hemp in Los Angeles. She shows off several of their products, including a hand santiizer and adds this comment: 

@unclebuds_hemp sent me a self-care package, which has been helpful in me keeping my groove while I’ve been home. Thanks for the Uncle Bud's Hemp Hand Sanitizer, CBD Lip Balm, and Hemp Body Lotion. And an even bigger thanks for donating 1,000 free hand sanitizers to @safeplaceforyouth to help keep homeless youth safe during this crisis. Over the next 48 hours, Uncle Bud’s will donate an additional bottle of Hemp Hand Sanitizer to Safe Place for Youth per re-post or share that tags @UncleBuds_Hemp. Stay vigilant and stay protected! #advertisement

Fonda tells WWD that she's now the amabassador for Uncle Bud's:

"I use a pen that limits how many doses you get, which is way better than taking sleeping pills... But I was never majorly into pot to tell you the truth. However, I have osteoarthritis, so things that help with pain and inflammation are good. I have relatives who are elderly and I have sent them these products and they have really made a difference for them. Then I have indigenous friends who grow industrial hemp, and I’m learning a lot about hemp as a viable economic sector we need to foster. I found out recently, for example, that Henry Ford made a car out of industrial hemp fiber, and there’s something on YouTube that shows a guy with a sledge hammer trying to make a dent in this hemp fiber car, and he couldn’t. So it was a hemp fiber car that couldn’t be dented that ran on hemp oil!"

Jane Fonda: "I was never majorly into pot to tell you the truth."

She previously told Dujour:

"I’ll smoke pot every now and then. I cannot see a movie on pot. The number of movies I’ve seen thinking, This is probably the best I have ever seen, and then I’ll see it again sober and think, What was I thinking?"

Jane Fonda: "I’ll smoke pot every now and then."

Fonda famously smokes a joint with Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton in 9 to 5 (1980) and later played a pot-smoking grandma in Peace, Love and Understanding (2012). She's also co-starred with Tomlin in the stony Netflix series Grace and Frankie since 2015.
