Martha Stewart brings CBD gummies to Valentine’s Day lunch

They’re the NYC ladies who munchie!

A gaggle of Gotham’s most accomplished gals proved you can have a good time on Valentine’s Day with pals, when TV newswoman Judy Licht hosted her 43rd annual Valentine’s Day lunch.

The tradition was started as a way “to celebrate my girlfriends on this holiday, because the men in our lives may come and go — but girlfriends are mostly forever.”

Licht launched the Galentine’s lunch the year she separated from husband No. 1. She subsequently married famed ad man and restaurateur Jerry Della Femina in 1983.

Among the powerhouse women in attendance this year at Licht’s Upper East Side townhouse was Martha Stewart, 81 — who brought heart-shaped Valentine’s boxes for everyone filled with “feel good” CBD gummies, we hear.

Stewart launched her own CBD line in 2020.

The always-opportunistic domestic diva launched her line of “hemp-derived, cannabidiol-rich” treats in 2020, we reported.

Also at the ladies luncheon was 94-year-old Dr. Ruth Westheimer — who previewed her latest book of erotica, “The Art of Arousal,” for the gathering. One guest exclaimed, “This book would’ve been banned 30 years ago!”

Acclaimed actress Tovah Feldshuh, 74, rode over on her bicycle before her performance on Broadway’s “Funny Girl” the same night. “She surprised Dr. Ruth,” a guest told us. (Feldshuh played Dr. Ruth onstage last year.)

Others at the loveable luncheon included “Good Day New York” host Rosanna Scotto, WNBC I-Team reporter Sarah Wallace, PIX11 reporter Magee Hickey and cartoonist Marisa Acocella. Cosmetics guru Trish McEvoy couldn’t make it, but she sent bottles of her “new sexy fragrance,” called X, we hear, for the crowd.

The lunch has been known over the years to attract attendees including author Erica Jong, Vanity Fair’s Amy Fine Collins, fashion maven Fern Mallis, Arlene Alda, Diane Clehane, Joan Hamburg, and Carolines on Broadway grande dame Caroline Hirsch.
