CBD is all the rage, from the U.S. to the U.K. A handful of celebs born in the U.K. have jumped on the cannabidiol bandwagon.
Pam St. Clement
The 76-year-old former EastEnders star suffers from polymyalgia rheumatica, an inflammatory condition that causes stiffness in the joints and muscle pain. Thankfully, she’s managed to obtain relief by using CBD oil.
“Taking this oil has changed my life,” St. Clement said in 2017. “I'm no longer in pain. My joints are no longer stiff, I sleep better, almost jump out of bed and walk longer distances. I've suffered with polymyalgia rheumatica for the past 10 years. I just woke up with it one day. Until now, the only thing that treats it is steroids, which I’ve become resistant to. I'm very happy using the [CBD] drops. I take them every day under my tongue and they don’t give you a high.”
St. Clement learned about CBD during a visit to the U.S. when she was promoting the documentary, Gone to Pot: An American Road Trip, in which she did bong hits of THC-laden cannabis.
“Gone to Pot changed my life,” she explained. “I went to America to find out about how cannabis has been legalized in certain states and also discovered CBD. I didn’t realize cannabis was such a complex plant with these properties which you can get medical help from.”
The 32-year-old Irish actress, who starred in the British TV series, The Fall, and has appeared in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and other films, is a s self-admitted terrible sleeper.
“I have an insane night-time routine to help (eye mask, lavender spray, and white noise machine),” Kane admitted last year. “Travelling so much for work and staying in hotels and doing split days and night shoots have created havoc. CBD is my newest discovery in helping me sleep. The teas are amazing.”
The 70-year-old Grease star and pop singer – she was born the U.K., raised in Australia and now lives in the U.S. – has been battling breast cancer since being diagnosed in the ’90s.
“In California, it’s legal to grow a certain amount of plants for your own medicinal purposes,” Olivia Newton-John stated last year, adding that her husband “makes me tinctures. They help with pain. My dream is that, in Australia, it will be available soon to all the cancer patients and people going through cancer that causes pain.”
John’s daughter Chloe Lattanza (in photo above) has acknowledged that her mother also uses “CBD oil and other natural healing remedies, plus modern medicine, to beat this,” she said in 2017.
