    Some celebs truly have their sights set high.

    From Whoopi Goldberg's announcement of her line "Whoopi & Maya," to Willie Nelson's "Willie's Reserve," it seems like more and more stars are exploring the CBD and cannabis business.

    "As an activist, I've championed human rights, social issues and concerns of the disenfranchised, among other things," "The View" co-host previously wrote in an open letter. "My latest venture concerns a social issue near and dear to my heart: the right for women to have access to the analgesic and other therapeutic qualities of cannabis."

    This seems to confirm a trend that has started long before 4/20. For some, weed is the new wine and owning a cannabis farm is so much cooler than owning a vineyard.

    "After 10 years of having Rheumatoid Arthritis and going through every class of medication to get some relief, I finally listened to my holistic mom and began treating my autoimmune disease with cannabis," the Bravo star shared exclusively with E! News when discussing her company Wsah. "My health is better than it has been in nearly 15 years, so I knew that I had to make the world hear me somehow about this miracle healing plant so I created Wsah, a cannabis wellness brand."

    Ultimately, these stars are just a few of the many people exploring the business of cannabis in 2019.
