Kardashian Family Friend Malika Haqq Sheds Light on Use of CBD for Anxiety



  • CBD is known for its anxiety-relieving qualities.
  • Kardashian Family friend Malika Haqq opts for its use over Xanax as a natural alternative to the heavy medication.

Cannabidiol, or CBD, has risen in popularity as more and more consumers use it to help with their anxiety, depression, and other mental illnesses. While the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not stated officially that the product can be advertised for this use, it hasn’t taken long for consumers to support its use, considering its newfound legal status with the 2018 Farm Bill. One celebrity that is singing its praises lately is Malika Haqq.

Haqq, who can be seen frequently on the reality show Keeping Up with The Kardashians as Khloe Kardashian’s best friend, has been vocal about her struggle with anxiety. “Anyone who truly does have anxiety knows that it’s a problem,” Haqq said during an interview with Page Six. While Haqq has previously treated her anxiety with the use of Xanax, therapy, and meditation, she became worried about the affects that the former could have on her body.

Speaking with People, Haqq stated,

“It isn’t that those things didn’t help me, but I actually needed to be on medication. But the older I’ve gotten, I’ve gotten wiser and more protective of myself and the things I put in my body.”

With the use of CBD, the 36-year old commented that the natural substance is helpful in managing the busy schedule of her daily life and filming KUWTK. Her business life requires her to constantly be involved with deals, contracts, and many other personalities in the entertainment industry. She stated,

“Those things can become highly overwhelming and because I’m always in a very busy setting that continues to change, I’m often very anxiety stricken.”

Since Haqq was a child, she has been involved with therapy, though the doctor has changed through the years. Still, she has kept her mental health a priority through her younger years to her current fame and admits that “no matter how much people tell you to breathe and count to 10, sometimes you do need additional help.”

This news all comes just weeks after Kim Kardashian came out about CBD saving her life and sister Kourtney Kardashian backing CBD for skincare benefits too.
