Ivan Moody attributes recovery to CBD.
Five Finger Death Punch's Ivan Moody credits a good chunk of his recovery from alcoholism to products containing CBD, or cannabidiol. That's the cannabis-derived chemical compound that's found a growing market among health-conscious and hemp-friendly consumers. Unlike the more well-known THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) found in cannabis, the component that gets one "high," CBD doesn't go psychoactive in one's system. However, according to its proponents, CBD offers a wealth of health benefits, including relief from pain, anxiety and more.
Moody has this year launched his own wellness products Moody's Medicinals, which includes CBD (and non-CBD) throat sprays and CBD-infused water products. Before Moody's Medicinals, it was a rough few years for the musician. He confessed to an alcohol problem that nearly got him ousted from Five Finger Death Punch. (Those issues were illustrated not so subtly in the band's 2016 music video for "I Apologize.") By 2017, Moody was missing gigs - and sources reported he was leaving the group - before he ultimately entered rehab to clean up his act. In 2019, the musician celebrated one year of sobriety.
