Wearing heels for a long time can be so tiring, especially when you’re going to the Oscars.
But Melissa McCarthy has found a new way to avoid pain!
According to the E! Live from The Red Carpet special correspondents, via Bustle, Melissa used CBD oil on her toes before enjoying the Oscars.

She’s not the only one who tried this trick: Several stylists keep their pre-Oscars kits with CBD oil like Lord Jones Body Lotion to rub on their clients’ feet before they put on their red carpet heels, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Timothy Welty, PharmD, chair of the department of clinical sciences at Drake University’s College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, however, said that CBD oil might only help as pain-relieving medications (like Tylenol or Advil) and “likely doesn’t control pain” on its own.
According to experts that it’s possible that some of the benefits are due to a placebo effect, meaning merely thinking that it will help your foot pain actually helps make the pain go away.
