'I Love Weed': Shawn Mendes Comes Out Of The Cannabis Closet

Shawn Mendes doesn’t want to broadcast his fondness for marijuana—but we will.

In a recent interview for a Rolling Stone cover story, the Canada-born pop sensation divulged that he was a regular cannabis consumer — albeit a low-key one.

“I love weed,” he said. “I wouldn’t tweet that—not yet, at least—but it’s really good for me. When I’m home, I’ll smoke and then play guitar for seven hours.”

While, really, there’s nothing holdin’ him back from going on the record about this newfound love of the plant, we can kind of understand that it doesn’t quite gel with the squeaky-clean image the 20-year-old star currently has in the media.

Still, what interests us most about this statement is the part where he says “not yet.” So…are we to assume that Mendes will be dropping some sultry radio hits about weed sometime down the line? Because we could rock with that.

Latest.

By now you may have heard about the cannabis plant's most well-known compounds, THC and CBD, however, there's more to marijuana than just its cannabinoids. Terpenes are aromatic compounds that give plants their flavor and aroma. Found in cannabis and other plants, terpenes have their own therapeutic effects, such as anti-inflammatory, anxiolytic, and anti-depressive properties.

Can we see some ID please?
