Martha Stewart is known for her healthy living products. Even though Martha now works with rapper Snoop Dogg, it still surprised fans when she said she would be working in the cannabis industry. She recently announced that she will be working on a whole line of cannabis products.

The products will include cosmetics, products for animals, food products, and more. She is working with the company Canopy Growth Corp. For instance, Martha is in more of an advisory role, helping the company form recipes. As the cannabis industry grows, Martha seems to want to get her share of the profits.

According to Bloomberg, Martha said, “I’ve been experimenting a little bit with some of the good products that are available now, I find them very useful and really good for your skin, and I think the anti-inflammatory qualities of some of them are very good.”

For instance, Snoop Dogg is actually responsible in part for her new venture. Martha and Snoop began making shows together including Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party. Then, Snoop introduced Martha to the CEO of Canopy Growth Corp, Bruce Linton, and the project grew from there.

Sweeping along the main drive to her Bedford home, @marthastewart48’s vibrant border garden blooms continuously through spring and summer. In our July/August issue, our founder shares the inspiration behind her border gardens and how the designs have evolved, thanks to some creative planning—and planting. “I had always wanted a garden rich in mauve, lavender, violet, purple, and blue, and I picked flowers in those shades. I planted clematis at each granite post in the pergola, then filled the beds with hundreds of alliums of all sizes, as well as nepeta, or catnip (which ended up being a mistake, because it spread like an invasive weed and eventually had to be moved). I also added ring-blooming bulbs, including crocuses, Camassia, and grape hyacinths, along with some comfrey.” Learn more about the blooms growing in Martha’s garden by picking up a copy of our new July/August issue or by visiting the link in bio. 👆🏼📷: @johnny_miller_

Similarly, the founder of another cannabis brand called Civilized, Derek Riedel, thinks that Martha will have a huge influence on the industry. He noted that it can help legitimize the products if people see that Martha gave her approval, for instance.

According to Forbes, Derek said, “What I love about her [Martha] is that she is so mainstream—a lifestyle icon for generations now. For her to have the confidence to move into the CBD industry with the world’s largest cannabis company speaks volumes. Martha is preheating the oven, so to speak, for an entire new demographic to cook in.”

The Martha Stewart Center for Living is officially open! The center, located in the heart of New York City's Union Square at @mountsinainyc, will provide services for older adults in the community, offering activities, classes, and programs to help them remain healthy and energetic into their elderly years. "My partnership with the Mount Sinai Health System continues to evolve as we expand services of the Martha Stewart Center for Living to downtown Manhattan, where the needs of older adults are currently underserved,” @marthastewart48 says. The idea for the Martha Stewart Center for Living was first inspired by her mother, "Big Martha," who lived an active life to the age of 93, she shares. The center is dedicated to Martha’s grandchildren, Jude and Truman. Learn more about the center on our Stories or at the link in bio. 👆🏼📷: Catherine Clarke
