Kim Kardashian made headlines earlier this month when she announced the theme of her baby shower for baby number four! Kimye are expecting again; this is the second time they’ve used a surrogate to expand their family. Even though Kim isn’t pregnant, fans were still surprised to learn she planned a CBD-themed baby shower. CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a compound found in hemp plants. The substance is known to provide anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety support. By making the theme of her baby shower “CBD”, Kim is advertising her own personal use of CBD.
The Kardashians are known for throwing extravagant get-togethers and this baby shower proved to be no exception. Like any Kardashian event, the baby shower had a star-studded guest list. Kim is known for creating fantastic events that evoke a distinct mood. As the family welcome baby number four, Kim wanted to create a sense of calm and zen. She called the party her “calm before the storm”.

To keep it relaxed, Kim and Kanye hosted the party in their private home. The color scheme was blue, as the West’s surrogate is carrying a baby boy. Every guest received a pair of blue Yeezy slides as a favor and a nod to their son’s impending arrival; Yeezy is Kanye’s fashion line. The couple said they wanted shower guests to feel like they just came over to “zen out on a Saturday”.
Chicago, North, and Saint all had their own baby showers as well. Kim admits that having a fourth baby shower might be a bit extra, but insists that she does it for her children. She and Kanye used a surrogate to carry their third child, Chicago. Since her body didn’t change and grow as the baby’s due date grew closer, Kim was concerned her older two children might not understand what was happening. The baby shower for Chicago and this CBD shower for their son help the whole family mentally prepare for the changes that come with a new addition to the crew.
Kim’s CBD baby shower was a huge hit with her friends and family. Long-time pal Paris Hilton joined the Wests, as did Chrissy Teigen and Larsa Pippen. Guests could choose to enjoy a sound bath. These immersive audio experiences are designed to promote healing and have been used for thousands of years by many different cultures. The sound vibrations created by the instruments help lower heart rate and decrease blood pressure, as well as promote a sense of wellbeing and relaxation. Of course, the zen day didn’t stop there.
CBD experts were on-hand at the baby shower to give advice and answer questions. They even helped prepare CBD teas and drops for guests to enjoy. The CBD-laced concoctions were designed to help Kim chill out. She reminded people who were critical of her using CBD that she isn’t pregnant, so there’s no reason she can’t take CBD whenever she wants.
Lucky guests took home CBD bath salts, body oils, and even mints! To top off the relaxed vibe, Kim designed floral arrangements around a particular type of “bud”. She encouraged her guests to “have a puff or put on some oil”. Could this be a hint on what Kim and Kanye might name this fourth child?
