The actress and filmmaker, 43, said she "can't get through the holidays without" marijuana during a panel on normalizing cannabis Wednesday at the Cann x Jane "Cann-Do Holiday" campaign premiere party at NeueHouse Hollywood.
"I am straight up a better parent when I'm just two Canns in. I'm like on their level," Bell explained. "I'm just like, 'That is a f---ing crazy dinosaur!' Like, 'Let's get on the ground right now and be f---ing crazy dinosaurs, let's open some presents. F--- it.' I become literally a kid."
The panel — which was moderated by The Washington Post's Taylor Lorenz and also featured Cann board member Rosario Dawson, Cannaclusive co-founder Mary Pryor, I Heart Jane CEO Socrates Rosenfeld, and Cann co-founder Luke Anderson — touched on their personal relationships with cannabis and improving racial disparities in the cannabis industry.

Written and directed by Bell, the short film "Cann-Do Holiday" centers on a bland seasonal gathering with family, which is saved with the help of Cann's THC and CBD-infused tonic. The campaign also stars Meg Stalter, Benito Skinner, Brandon Kyle Goodman, Lauren Wasser, Bre-Z and Raja.
"I need to knock wood, but she's been seizure-free for a few months," she said. "So I feel very grateful to celebrate her in that way. And it's been a great year for her and for the family."
Bell added: "She's like a teeny tiny advocate for epilepsy awareness and she shares that with her school. And so we're proud of her for that."
