As you probably know by now, celebrities smoking weed is quite commonplace. More and more, those in the spotlight have opened up about their cannabis usage—past, present and future. The latest A-lister to disclose their marijuana use over the years was Charlize Theron, who admitted to being a hardcore wake-and-baker in her heyday.
Charlize Theron’s Pot Passion
In an interview with E! News’ Sibley Scoles, the Gringo star said that when she was younger, she’d begin to smoke the minute the sun comes up.
“I was a wake-and-baker for most of my life,” Theron said.
Despite her love for weed, Theron admitted that she was somewhat of a late-bloomer when it came to toking, but she had found an instant connection.
” I didn’t really mess around with anything until I was much older,” Theron said. “But I really appreciated marijuana way more than alcohol or anything else”
However, the actress also admitted that she grew out of her stoner-phase in her thirties, after experiencing lesser highs.
“My chemistry was really good with it when I was younger and then it just changed one day. Like, in my early thirties I just became boring on it and I would just stand in front of my fridge, so that’s no good,” Theron admitted.
Apparently, not everyone is fond of the munchies.
Final Hit: Charlize Theron Opens Up About Her Love of Weed
While Theron is no longer a regular toker, the 42-year old actress said she wouldn’t be opposed to re-kindling the ‘spark she once had.’ However, this time, Theron would be using her weed medicinally. Specifically, for insomnia.
“I’m open to retrying it again because now there’s all these different strains and you can be specific with it,” she said. “And I’m actually really interested because I have really bad insomnia, and I’d much rather get off sleeping pills and figure out a strain that helps me sleep better.
So when I have a moment, I’m actually doing that with my mom. My mom has really bad sleep too.”
Luckily for Theron, there are plenty of indica-dominant strains that can help her with her sleeping issues.
And if she feels she no longer requires the psychoactive high of a classic marijuana strain, the actress could look into a low-THC form of treatment, such as a pot-inhaler that reportedly puts users to sleep in minutes.
Each puff of the inhaler contains less than a quarter of the amount of THC than your typical joint, so she wouldn’t find herself standing in front of her fridge, gazing aimlessly.
Welcome to the new world of cannabis, Charlize.
