While speaking on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on 4/20, Ellen DeGeneres admitted to drinking three THC and CBD-infused drinks before learning that her wife, Portia de Rossi, needed to be rushed to the ER for pains in her lower abdomen.

“I drank one, and I didn’t feel anything, so I drank three, and then I took two melatonin sleep pills. And I’m laying in bed, and I realize [Portia’s] not in bed,” she told Kimmel. “She’s moaning. I get out of bed, and she’s on the ground on all fours, and I said, ‘You’re not OK.’ She goes, ‘I’m OK.’ I said, ‘No, unless you’re playing Twister by yourself, you’re not OK.’ So I rushed her to the emergency room.”

After arriving at the hospital, DeGeneres was told de Rossi needed an appendectomy.

DeGeneres says while she isn’t typically a fan of marijuana, she was drinking the “weed drinks”, Cann Social Tonics, because they were reccommended by her friend, Chelsea Handler.

During the interview, Kimmel joked, “You drove her yourself?” And Ellen replied, “I did. I mean, I kicked in, like my adrenaline, because I just had to rush her there. It’s probably not safe, I shouldn’t be saying any of this.”
